Louisville Mayoral Candidates Respond to Local Issue Survey Ahead of Primary Election

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – AARP Kentucky invited candidates on the ballot for Louisville Metro's Mayoral election to share where they stand on four key questions for AARP members in Louisville and all 50-plus voters. The candidates’ responses are now publicly available online at aarp.org/Louisville. The candidate survey focused on how each candidate would make improvements to build a more livable and age-friendly Louisville, including:

The Louisville Mayoral candidate survey is one more part of the AARP 2022 voter engagement effort, “Our Voices Decide”, across Kentucky and the nation.   

Our Voices Decide is the theme for AARP’s voter education campaign for the 2022 midterm elections. This multipronged effort is designed to ensure that America’s older voters can continue to maximize their influence this year as they have for decades.

“As they do in every election cycle, voters 50-plus will decide who will hold power in cities, state capitals and Washington, D.C., in this year’s midterms,” says Jocqueline Stamps, an AARP Louisville volunteer leader. “Our role is to provide AARP members and 50-plus voters information on how, where and when to vote and to be the defender of their interests.” How, Where and When to vote in Kentucky resources are now available, aarp.org/kyvotes.

Through its campaign, AARP will also “remind candidates from both sides of the aisle that the voters 50-plus are the most important and reliable voting bloc,” Stamps says.

The larger campaign serves as a one-stop portal for voters to get information and news about the election, the issues at stake, state-specific voting assistance and ways voters can get involved in this year’s elections.
