District 9 contains portions of two of Louisville's most beloved Olmsted Parks. Cherokee and Seneca are beautiful gems that make Louisville the City of Parks, and we must remain focused on preserving and improving them. I will be a Councilperson who actively represents the people who live with these parks as their backyards. I am committed to protecting and improving our park system, and listening to any ideas for how to do so from our community.
In addition to our largest natural resources, our District is also home to smaller parks, playgrounds, green spaces, old-growth trees and more cherished spaces, like Clifton, Breslin, Found and Bignham. Our community deserves to have clean, safe places where we live, work, and play. I pledge to work to protect these places and lend my support to creating more of them throughout Louisville.
We are the stewards of this land and we owe it to our children to make sure it is preserved for future generations.
