Dan Johnsons Weekend Happenings


To My Constituents.   ..  


Dan Johnson sm      Three of the four attorneys and the highest ranking police official on the Louisville Metro Council voted to keep Councilwoman Barbara Shanklin as I did. We had a choice because the law stated we may remove her, not shall remove her. I believe the prosecutor did not prove that she benefited at all from it. I was there for better than 60 hours of testimony and I was not impressed and thought there was a lack of evidence against her. She may have lied to the council, but is that a reason to throw her off? I did not think so.”

            The Metro Council Webpage has the July 31, 2013 Council Court agenda along with all documents submitted to the Council Court uploaded and open to the public.  This includes exhibits submitted during the hearing and documents submitted to the Council Court Clerk, i.e. final “Instructions to the Council Court” and “Verdict” forms.  I am providing the link to the webpage:  Metro Council Agendas  Go to Council Court July 31 Agenda.  All documents are in a pdf format.
