Jackie Green – Write-In Candidate for Louisville Mayor
Fischer’s policies will not lead to neighborhoods that are safe, clean, tree-lined, prosperous, walkable, energy stingy, linked by transit and filled with healthy, independent, educated, engaged citizens breathing clean air and earning a living wage.
- a mayor whose policies will lead to a sustainable Louisville; not Fischer’s lip service and half hearted efforts at sustainability.
- more return on the taxes sent to the commonwealth; not Fischer’s higher, ambiguous, regressive taxes (LOST/LIFT).
- more investment in Louisville; not Fischer’s investment in the Louisville to Lexington mega-city.
- more local food; not Fischer’s destruction of local farmland and forest. – an urban forest and roof gardens; not Fischer’s surface parking lots.
- a mayor that understands that Refuse and Reduce precede Reuse and Recycle; not Fishcer’s1960s recycling program.
- investment in solar energy; not coal/natural gas/oil. – clean air; not air filled with ultra-fine particulate, emissions and chemical resleases.
- transportation fitting to the 21st Century; not modeled after the concepts of the 1950′s.
- a mayor who understands the differences in the transportation needs of downtown, central neighborhoods (within the Watterson), suburban neighborhoods (between the Watterson & the Snyder), and exurbia (beyond the Snyder). Downtown needs to be densely populated, dominated by pedestrians, cyclists and public transit. The central neighborhoods also need to be pedestrian and cyclist friendly with great public transit. Suburbia has a higher degree of automobile dependency, but does need some public transit service. Exurbia is hopelessly automobile dependent. It’s population cannot possibly live life styles dominated by walking and cycling, and the exurbian distances make regular use of public transit totally unrealistic. Jackie Green is committed to making Louisville more sustainable.
