Description

We continue to amp up your excitement for the June 23rd Primary Election as your host, Justin Mog, continues his conversations with Louisville Metro Council candidates who are running in seats that will be decided in the primary. This week we talk to Robert LeVertis Bell, running in an exciting six-way race to fill the seat on Metro Council being vacated by Barbara Sexton-Smith in downtown District 4. Robert is a 40-year-old Louisville native, public school teacher and democratic socialist. He’s also a father of three, and community organizer. You can learn more about him at http://bell4louisville.com

Robert is running a grassroots-funded campaign on democratic socialist principles. He is rejecting funding from all corporations, developers, and megachurch leaders.

District 4 stretches east from 24th Street north of Broadway, to Baxter Ave. and as far south as just south of Burnett Avenue. The District incorporates portions of many neighborhoods including Russell, Central Business District, Smoketown, Shelby Park, Meriwether, Phoenix Hill, Butchertown, Paristown Pointe, Irish Hill, Germantown and Schnitzelburg.

Go to http://jeffersoncountyclerk.org for info on getting registered to vote (deadline: Tuesday, May 26th) and how to vote, including requesting a mail-in ballot to vote absentee (deadline to request: Tuesday, June 16th)

Residents of the district will find 6 active candidates for this seat on their Democratic Primary ballots: Ron BOLTON, Aletha FIELDS, Adam CAPERTON, Darryl YOUNG JR., Robert LeVertis BELL, and Jecorey ARTHUR. Note that Dennisha RIVERS will appear on the ballot, but she has dropped out of the race. Note as well, that voters will also find TEN different candidates running against Mitch McConnel for U.S. Senator on the June 23rd ballot!

As always, our feature is followed by your community action calendar for the week, so get your calendars out and get ready to take action for sustainability NOW!
