District 21 Councilwoman George Announces She Will Not Seek Second Term
Louisville – In today’s “Taking One’s Turn” edition of her District 21 e-newsletter, Councilwoman Nicole George announced that she will not be running for a second term as District 21 Metro Councilwoman.
“My turn on the Metro Council has been a tremendous honor and certainly the highlight of my career. In working with my neighbors, Metro partners, colleagues, and nonprofit partners we have been able to make positive gains in both the district and across our City in what was arguably one of more challenging times in recent history (e.g. budget shortfall, pandemic, and social justice reform). But with that in mind, it will be someone else’s turn to serve District 21 starting in 2023.”
Councilwoman George shared with her constituency that her decision was made with “great intention and not done to create room for service in another elected position in 2023.
George stated the follow for why she has chosen to not seek re-election in 2022. “I feel a great sense of urgency in building on the progress made over the last 2 ½ years and want to continue applying the same focus and energy I brought to service for the remainder of my term, something that can only be accomplished with a definitive time frame for deliverables and absent the distraction of a campaign.”
