Metro Councilman Tom Owen discusses what he'd like in his successor at 'Talk with Tom' event Saturday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One of the last "Talk with Tom" events held for Louisville residents in District 8 on Saturday.

That's the area in the Highlands represented by longtime Metro Councilman Tom Owen.

He's served on Metro Council since it was formed.

The 76-year-old Democrat met with his constituents Saturday at Quills Coffee after announcing he will not seek re-election next year.

"I'm hoping that we will select a progressive, thoughtful successor who will be both grassroots hands-on - I think that's been one of my strengths - but at the same time be very much a part in shaping a vision for the entire community."

WDRB.com reporter Marcus Green spoke with Owen about his future plans. Read his story here.
