Independent mayoral candidate Jackie Green, who is getting almost no traction in the race, sent out an email blast just before 10:00 A.M. this morning that loosely attacks Hal Heiner:
NOTE: This is not an endorsement of Hal Heiner.
– Hal is willing to let the next greenfield development still on the developer’s drawing board diminish private investment, public infrastructure & metro services for all existing neighborhoods.
– Hal thinks we have the money to build some unknown variation on the Ohio River Bridges Project (ORBP) and to build a world class transportation system.
– Hal will not challenge our local economy’s dependency on Kentucky Coal.
And seriously hits Greg Fischer:
Greg Fischer … inconsistent, incongruent, conflicting thought.
talks about hiring local talent but hires a campaign manager from Rhode Island.
talks about supporting local business but had his website developed by a Washington D.C. firm.
thinks it is not the mayor’s place to comment on the school assignment plan.
thinks we support the local food economy while destroying local farms.
thinks straight talk is going negative.
thinks discussing controversial issues is divisive.
talks about “jobs, jobs, jobs” yet will not challenge our economy’s dependency on Kentucky Coal.
talks about building teams but has never been to a Metro Council meeting.
accuses Hal Heiner of being an ‘insider’.
is willing to let the next greenfield development still on the developer’s drawing board diminish private investment, public infrastructure & metro services for all existing neighborhoods.
thinks we have the money to build some unknown variation on the Ohio River Bridges Project (ORBP) and to build a world class transportation system.
didn’t think we needed to “burn mental calories” pondering the financing of the ORBP.
Communication just days after Jackie Green announced his mayoral candidacy….
Jackie Green: Greg, I’d like to sit down with you & talk about a couple of issues, namely, transportation & land use.
Greg Fischer: Jackie, you are competition now, I don’t think we should talk.
Does Louisville want leadership that will not listen to other opinions?
Conversation re: land use…..
Greg Fischer: Jackie, you can’t tell people where to live.
Jackie Green: I do not want to tell people where to live, I just do not want to enable them to live in the wrong places.
Greg Fischer: Jackie, that is a value judgment.
Don’t values inform most of what we do (or fail to do)?
Is this thoughtful leadership for Louisville?
