Metro Councilman Kelly Downard (District 16) and Councilwoman Tina Ward Pugh (District 9) offer the following statements for media to show their bi-partisan support for today’s announcement by Mayor Greg Fischer, regarding a complete and thorough review of Metro Animal Services.

“The problems at Metro Animal Services have gone on for too long. I thank Mayor Fischer for taking quick action to address this issue and begin a thorough review of the practices and policies at Metro Animal Services. I look forward to supporting Mayor Fischer, as we work to make Louisville MAS the best run organization in the country.”

– Kelly Downard, Past Chair of the Metro Council’s Government Accountability and Oversight Committee

“I commend the Mayor for this action. For too long there have been too many questions about operations, policies and practices of LMAS. The Metro Council has spent much time and effort to help LMAS with new ordinances and funding for facilities but concerns persist. Those of us in this community who love and care for animals want to make sure we and the people who take care of animals are doing the right thing. I am ready to assist in any way possible and I look forward to seeing the final results of the mayor’s action.”

– Tina Ward Pugh, Chair of the Metro Council’s Government Accountability and Oversight Committee
