District 4 announces Annual Willie Bright Community BBQ

Tuesday September 18, 2007

For Immediate Release:
Majority Caucus
Louisville Metro Council
Contact: Tony Hyatt 574-4137/526-3622

Councilman David Tandy (D) 4 is continuing a tradition of hosting the people of the Fourth Metro Council District to an old fashion cookout and community get-together at the end of September.

“I believe that when people in a community take the time to get to know one another and learn that we have more things in common than we have differences there is nothing that we can't accomplish,” says Tandy. “I am proud to carry on that tradition of the Fourth District Bar-B-Que.”

The Willie B. Bright Community BBQ will get underway beginning at 12:00 noon to 4:00pm on Saturday, September 29 at Sheppard Park located at 16th and Magazine Streets in the Historic Russell neighborhood.

Councilman Tandy and his family will host the event which will offer free food, music, fun and fellowship.

Willie B. Bright was a businessman and community activist prior to his being first elected District 4 Councilman in 2002. Mr. Bright passed away in 2004. “Councilman Bright was a man who believed that elected leaders should always be engaged with the people that they served,” says Tandy. “The continuation of this community bar-b-que is a way for us to honor the memory of a good friend to the community and for everyone, in an informal setting, to have an opportunity talk with their elected officials.”
