On November 3, 2015 Pat Mulvihill was elected to serve as the Metro Councilman for District 10. He was re-elected to his first full four year term in 2016. He is a lifelong resident of District 10 and has spent more than 15 years in public service.
District 10 serves the people of Petersburg, Buechel, West Buechel, Bashford manor, Watterson Park, Audubon Ridge, Camp Taylor, Fincastle, Nightingale, Audubon Park, North Audubon, Schnitzelburg, Parkway Village, Germantown-Paristown, George Rogers Clark Park, Prestonia, and Belmar.
In 2019, he was elected Chair of the Majority Caucus and President Pro Tem of the Metro Council.
In 2020, he serves as Vice - Chair of the Metro Council's Parks and Sustainability Committee. He is also a member of the Budget, and Community Affairs, Health & Education Committees.
He began his career in civil practice and later worked as an Assistant County Attorney under Irv Maze, acting as a criminal prosecutor and co-director of the Louisville/Jefferson County Merger Transition Office. In that role, Pat drafted and lobbied for the bill that served as the guide to ensure a smooth transition to the new unified government.
From 2011 to 2014, Pat served as Mayor Greg Fischer's general counsel and Director of Legislative Affairs. As part of the Intergovernmental Affairs Team, he successfully lobbied the Kentucky General Assembly to pass legislation giving Louisville Metro Government priority lien status for abatement costs in cleaning and boarding private property. This has been a tremendous help in fighting Metro Louisville's vacant and abandoned property problem.
In late 2014, Pat returned to the Jefferson County Attorney's office to serve as Director of the Civil Division, where he managed a team of more than 30 attorneys and staff who handle collection of delinquent taxes, employee investigations, labor negotiations, real estate and economic development transactions, land use regulations, contracts and procurement, and other legal services.
Pat currently serves on the Louisville/Jefferson County Democratic Executive Committee. He also serves on the Louisville Zoo Foundation Board and the Historic Preservation Advisory Task Force. His previous community service includes the Board of Directors of the Louisville Central Community Center, Louisville Metro Council District 10 Advisory Committee, and Metro United Way’s Successful School Age Youth Committee.
Pat mentors 2 students weekly in the Everyone Reads Program at Camp Taylor Elementary and volunteers for the Legal Aid Society helping underserved residents with legal issues.
Pat graduated cum laude from the University of Louisville School of Law in 1995, and magna cum laude with a B.S. in accounting from the University of Kentucky in 1992. He sees elected office as a culmination of his many years of experience serving Metro Louisville. He is continuing a legacy created by his mother, Mary Margaret Mulvihill, who served on the Board of Alderman from 1975 to 1981.
He is an attorney who specializes in business and corporate governance, assists small businesses in collection matters, including filing liens, prepares wills and other testamentary instruments, probates estates and counsels on estate and trust matters.
Pat and his wife, Jennifer, an attorney who serves as Compliance Manager for LG&E/KU, live in the heart of District 10 with their three children — Jack, Jacob, and Katie.
