White Releases Economic Plan

by Gabe Bullard

Democratic mayoral candidate Shannon White has released a three-point plan for improving Louisville’s economy.

White’s plan calls for more investment in small businesses, more public-private partnership and a new focus helping Louisvillians get GEDs and college degrees.

White has polled around 4% in the Democratic primary, but she says she hopes to win over undecided voters with a new focus on policy.

“I wanted to roll out this plan and plan to, for the next five weeks, roll out a different plan each week—quality of life, the bridges project—how I stand on some of these issues, as people continue to get more involved with our campaign and looking at candidates and who they want to vote for,” she says.

About one in four likely Democratic voters is undecided according to the latest Courier-Journal/WHAS11 Bluegrass Poll.

White is one of eight Democrats seeking the mayor’s office. Three Republicans and at least three independent candidates are also running.
