Jeffersonville widow loses bid for late husband's city-council seat

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The widow of a Jeffersonville city councilman who died suddenly in March has lost her bid to fill his vacant seat.

The Clark County Democrats voted in former city councilman Ron Ellis to fill the at-large seat. The seat was held by Josh Rodriquez, who died from complications of a heart attack in March. 

His widow, Meredith Clipp Rodriquez, ran to fill the seat, but lost to Ellis by three votes. 

"I threw my name in the hat to try to see about that city council seat that he worked so hard for,” Clipp Rodriquez said. 

Despite a lack of political experience, Clipp Rodriquez says community members encouraged her to run.
