Louisville, KY; The following is a statement by Metro Council Court Chair Kelly Downard.
“The Metro Council Court after two days of testimony has returned from deliberations with unanimous decisions supporting both charges brought by members of the Louisville Metro Council’s Charging Committee. As a result the Metro Council Court has reached the decision to remove a member of our elected body. This is the first time such an action has been taken since Merged Government, and reached with careful thought and consideration.”
“I thank the members of the Metro Council Court, Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell and his staff, representatives of the Council Clerk’s office along with legal counsel for both sides, as well as the five members of the Charging Committee who had the courage to move forward with delivering the charges to the Metro Council Clerk.”
