When I moved to Louisville in 2008, there was a flourishing local food scene. It is still present but not as much momentum as then.

Our mayor had the opportunity to solve many of the problems involving the equitable distribution of food and goods in this city by affording us a light rail mass transit system, but instead invested in a failing tolled bridge network for big investors and the trucking industry further adding to the problem.

We need mass transit so the most disenfranchised can have access to local food where it is since they won’t bring it directly to us.
