A word from Councilman Pat Mulvihill!

November 18, 2015

On November 3, 2015 I was elected to serve as the Metro Councilman for District 10. I am a lifelong resident of District 10 and have spent more than 15 years in public service.

I began my 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, I 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, I served as Mayor Greg Fischer's general counsel and Director of Legislative Affairs. As part of the Intergovernmental Affairs Team, I 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, I returned to the Jefferson County Attorney's office to serve as Director of the Civil Division, where I 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.

I currently serve on the Louisville/Jefferson County Democratic Executive Committee. My 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.

I 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. I see elected office as a culmination of his many years of experience serving Metro Louisville. I am continuing a legacy of public service started by my mother, Mary Margaret Mulvihill, who served on the Board of Alderman from 1975 to 1981.

My wife, Jennifer, is an attorney who serves as a Compliance Manager for LG&E/KU, and I live in the heart of District 10 with our three children — Jack, Jacob, and Katie.

I was sworn in on November 7, 2015, by Court of Appeals Judge Irv Maze with my family and mother Mary Margaret Mulvihill at Frazier Rehab Center.
