Ken Herndon, Louisville-Jefferson County’s Democratic Judge-Executive, has officially filed to run for the 6th District Metro Council seat that represents Old Louisville, several South Central neighborhoods, the area surrounding the University of Louisville and a portion of downtown. The 6th District seat is currently held by Democratic Councilman George Unseld.
“I look forward to offering the residents of the 6th District the kind of high-energy, focused leadership other districts have had and that we deserve”, says Herndon.
Herndon has been a staple of Democratic politics in Louisville for decades. Via a press release today, his campaign noted that he’s been knocking on doors for six months and has already raised nearly $20,000 for the local race.
