Democrat Pat Mulvihill elected to Metro Council's 10th District seat

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Democrat Pat Mulvihill easily beat Bob Redman to win the Louisville Metro Council’s 10th District race.

Mulvihill, a lawyer in the Jefferson County Attorney’s Office, captured 66 percent of the vote with all precincts reporting.

He said in a telephone interview that he knocked on 6,500 doors in the district that includes areas near the Louisville Zoo, including stretches of Bardstown and Poplar Level roads. The district also includes the troubled Economy Inn.

"I think it made a difference," he said. "I think people got to see me for me.”

Redman is a former high school football coach and political newcomer.

Mulvihill will finish the term of the late Jim King, the Metro Council president who died while in office earlier this year. The interim council member, Democrat Steve Magre, was selected by the Metro Council and plans to run for the seat next year.

Mulvihill said public safety remains his top priority.
