Statement from Councilman David James (D-District 6)

Councilman David James Councilman David James

Councilwoman Shanklin has been a remarkable colleague in the years that I have been serving on the Louisville Metro Council. While Dr. Shanklin may not have exercised the best judgment in her actions leading to this hearing, she did not intentionally violate our ethics policy warranting a removal. Our ruling tonight was an exercise in self-governance where my colleagues and I listened intently to both sides and the evidence that was presented, ultimately concluding that she did nothing warranting removal from her position where she has tirelessly served her community for years. Now that this process is over, it is time for all of us on the Council to move forward and continue to work to serve the interests of the citizens Louisville Metro.
