The big question this morning is whether or not Dave Armstrong is taking a look at running for Louisville Metro Mayor. There are sources saying that he is and many politicos are encouraging the former Louisville Mayor and Kentucky Attorney General to run.
Armstrong, a former Jefferson County Judge Executive and Commonwealths Attorney, compiled a record of high accomplishment during his four year term as the old Louisville's last mayor.
He is consisitently given high marks for his work on downtown development and he had a strong record of taking care of the basic neighborhood needs.
Armstrong also knows the county areas outside the old city limits very well, as a result of his nine years as Jeffeson County Judge-Executive.
His entry immediately would make him the front runner in the current crowded Democratic field. He would quickly become an alternative for voters, especially in the central, south and southwest areas of Louisville, and he is well respected in other areas.
He is respected by Chamber of Commerce and Labor leaders alike.
Armstrong currently is head of the Kentucky Public Service Commission, a job he likes very well, but could respond to the call to run. It may all come down to family before he would make a run.
