Tandy Kicks Off Campaign

Louisville Metro Councilman David Tandy has officially launched his campaign for mayor.Tandy kicked off his candidacy Thursday with an event at Union Station and the release of a multi-page policy report.The report outlines Tandy's belief that education, homelessness, employment and transportation are all linked, and his plan to address each issue as it relates to the others."You can't have more good-paying jobs if you don't have an educated workforce that's ready to go into those jobs on day one," he says. "And you can't have a good educational system if you have children worrying each and every day how they're going to find the next meal or have a roof over their head."Tandy says spreading word of this platform will help him overcome the fundraising gap between him and some of his better-financed opponents."I think that what you'll find at the end of the day is they'll vote for the person they believe can best move the community forward and I believe they'll vote for me as that candidate," he says.Tandy says he plans to collect many small donations during the campaign. He is one of eleven people who have announced a run for mayor.
