Democrat Lisa Moxley has never held political office. But she does have political experience.
In 2008, she served as press secretary in Kentucky for then-Sen. Barack Obama. She also worked on his campaign in Chicago and Washington D.C.
"We have for the first time in the generation the opportunity to come together as a community and decide and want to move forward," she said in a recent interview with Fox 41 News.
She says her experience working with the Obama campaign was a heavy influence on her decision to run to be Louisville's next mayor.
"I never thought in a million years that I would run for public office, certainly not in the career plan."
But her plans changed. As an attorney, she says she would be well-suited to deal with the city's issues, including settling disputes between fire and police unions.
She says city audit published this week shows Louisville needs better direction.
"The audit report is out and there are obviously some real issues," she said. "It looks like there are some efficiencies that can be found."
Moxley is among a crowded field of eight Democrats. She has been trailing in recent polls.
BH: "Do the recent poll numbers concern you?"
BH: "Really why so?"
LM: "It's early. People I am talking are starting to pay attention. And I hadn't my numbers were lower than some others and I'm not up with my website yet."
She says her website could be running in the coming days. Our interview took place in the Kentucky Center for the Arts, a location Moxley chose because she says the city needs to pay more attention to the arts.
"We have wonderful artists here, I definitely think we need to do a better job of marketing what is here both locally and patronize and throughout the state and as a way to promote tourism," she said.
As an entertainment attorney, Moxley says the city and state could be benefit if more filmmakers would shoot here.
Convincing them to come, she says, could be the job of the next mayor.
This is just one in a series of interviews Fox 41's Bennett Haeberle has conducted with those vying to become Louisville's next mayor. Stay tuned to Fox 41 News and fox41.com for updates and extended interviews.
