LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A grassroots activist and progressive attorney says he will challenge Mayor Greg Fischer for the democratic nomination to be Louisville's next mayor.
Supporters joined Ryan Fenwick Monday as he filed paperwork to run.
Fenwick is a former executive committee member of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth.
He says he envisions a more progressive path for Louisville, such as creating shared wealth, restorative justice and a more protective environmental policy. Fenwick told us voices in the community aren't taken seriously by the current administration.
"We need to make sure we're listening to average people in the city and what locals are saying and their priorities for Louisville's future," he said.
The primary election is Tuesday, May 22.
