Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer marked his 100th day in office last week. The mayor has faced several challenges in that time, including union disputes, industrial accidents and troubled Metro departments.
Facing a $22 million shortfall, Fischer will spend much of his next 100 days working on the city budget, which political observers say is the first true indicator of how his vision for the city compares to his campaign promises.
I spoke with former mayoral candidate Tyler Allen about Fischer’s time in office. Allen supported Fischer’s opponent in last year’s general election, but says he’s been relatively pleased with the mayor’s performance so far.
WFPL will review the mayor’s brief tenure and look to the future at 1:00 pm Wednesday.
