Councilwoman Judith Green (D) 1 will welcome national radio host Russ Parr to Louisville when his “Russ Bus” annual back to school tour comes to Louisville on Thursday, August 9th.
“This is one way for Louisville to be in the national spotlight as part of a very important event--getting children ready for the new school year,” says Green.
Parr will broadcast his show, which will be heard on 40 stations around the country from Louisville at the Kroger parking lot, located at 28th and Broadway Streets. The show is heard locally on B-96.5 from 6:00am to 10:00am.
During the broadcast, school supplies will be given away to children and their families, while they last. Green will be on hand to meet children, to register parents to vote, and to encourage them to vote in the upcoming gubernatorial election.
She will also be educating and talking to parents about the positive effect the proposed Library District referendum will have on our district, and to let them know they will be able to vote yes for this referendum on the November ballot.
“As a new Councilwoman, I have an interest in promoting quality education, thus this is a chance for me to talk with constituents and parents about the upcoming school year and the need for a new and improved library system in Metro Louisville,” says Green. “Children in this community deserve a first class educational system, as well as, a library system that will help them reach a level of education that will help them be competitive in the global community.”
Russ Parr’s radio show is heard by 3.2 million listeners in 40 cities across the country Monday through Friday. Parr has taken his “Russ Bus” all over the country along with various recording artists for many years.
“To all District 1 constituents, please come out listen to the great music that will be provided by the Russ Parr show, and just have fun,” says Councilwoman Green.
