Mayor Abramson holds final Community Conversation

Posted:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41) -- It is a year of lasts for Mayor Jerry Abramson. Monday night, he held his last Mayor's Community Conversation, and it was at his alma mater, Seneca High School. Abramson says he's proud of what the events have accomplished. 

"People show up.. generally we average around 100-110 people. Sometimes we've had a lot more, depending on the controversy of the moment, sometimes less. But, I know it has served the community well. And, I know that people appreciate what we've done," says Abramson.  

The mayor has held these Community Conversations on the first Thursday of each month since 2003. And, they've generated more than five thousand suggestions and concerns from the community. Abramson says mayors across the country have adopted his idea.

The mayor actually started the idea in 1986, before the merger of city and county governments. Back then, the events were called Mayor's Night In. Abramson says he hopes they continue under the new mayor. He adds that he hopes to continue these in some form at the state level if he becomes Kentucky's Lieutenant Governor next year.
