Western Louisville Is Spreading it's Wings...
This is a new series we will launch this summer. We have partnered with GLI, Louisville Metro Government, Metro Council, Congressman Yarmuth, State Senator Neal, State Representatives Owens and Meeks. We will send out weekly e-mail blast or post a link through this site to inform you of what our legislators are doing that effect your business and personal lives. When session is in we often get the reports daily. Our elected officials need to hear from us more often to better inform them of which way we would like for them to vote. Have you ever met your councilperson, congressman, senator or state representative? Other than your vote have you ever voiced your opinion? If you would like to be placed on the email list please forward your information to email@example.com.

Enviromental Affairs Report...
This is handled through our partnership with the West Jefferson County Community Task Force headed by Carl Hilton. This group meets the third Tuesday of each month at the NIA Center from 6-7 p.m. Several studies and soil samples have been taken in Elliott Park @ 28th and Broadway and in the Rubbertown area. In light of the last two accidents that have taken place recently we certainly need to be more informed and engaged. WJCCTF's mission is to provide research and studies to validate or nullify environmental concerns and issues of residents of West Jefferson County, to empower residents to make informed decisions. For more information please visit the site @ www.wjcctf.org or you may phone Carl @ 502-852-4609 or email him @ firstname.lastname@example.org. They welcome your concerns and participation.
