Scott W. Brinkman (R) House District 32 might not be filing for re-election. A potential Democratic candidate for this office provided me with this information. If true (which I doubt), then is Mr. Brinkman thinking about running for Mayor of Louisville?
I have heard rumors about other possible candidates for Mayor of Louisville. A very well respected political operative has told me that Anne Northup is contemplating a run for mayor. Bruce Lunsford is also (according to the rumor mill) thinking about running for this office. I have been told by those who know Mr. Lunsford that he IS NOT going to run.
