Louisville – For his years of service and dedication to those in need, Councilman Dan Johnson (D-21) was honored with the Good Neighbor Award by the South Louisville Community Ministries.
“I am humbled by this honor,” said Johnson. “It will always remind me of how we can all work together to help those in the community who really need our help.”
Johnson received the honor on Wednesday at the University of Louisville University Club during the South Louisville Community Ministries Families helping Families Annual fundraiser. The event helped the group raise money to assist some 1800 families in the area.
“When I first met him, Dan said I was here for you yesterday, I am here for you today, and I will be here for you tomorrow," .said James Laemmle, Executive Director of the SLCM. “Indeed he has".
Laemmle went on to say the group’s existence would not have been possible were it not for Councilman Johnson.
“I hope everyone will take the time to get involved with the good work of all the Community Ministries in metro Louisville,” said Johnson.
