Dear 9th District Residents,
My name is Patrick Joseph Duerr and I am running for the 9th District Louisville Metro Council. I am a Louisville native, and there is no place Sandy, and our daughters Elizabeth, Lauren and Julia would rather call home.
I graduated from Trinity High School and the University of Louisville with a Bachelor of Science degree in environmental science. For those of you familiar with Trinity, my great uncle was Father Tom Duerr. My father, Joseph Duerr, has been the Editor for the catholic Record newspaper for 41 years. Sandy and I are parishioners of Our Lady of Lourdes catholic church in St. Matthews.
I am the Director of Marketing & Government Contracts for Delta Direct Staffing and Delta Logistics & Distribution. My background as a small business executive, financial advisor and my experience in the environmental sciences makes me a strong candidate to make informed decisions on the critical issues facing our Kentucky communities today.
I am a proud fiscal conservative republican who believes we should utilize our current financial resources more productively, before one more dollar in additional taxes are raised. In addition, I believe the constituents of Louisville are eager for new employment and entrepreneurial opportunities. So I am committed to creating a job growth movement for our city that will allow us to compete once again as an industrial leading city.
I believe that Louisville can become economically sound once again, but we must take care and provide assistance to all the Louisville families and businesses that have been forced to sacrifice and make undesirable decisions during these strenuous times. We can do this by stimulating our city's economy through corporate and small business tax cuts, reducing personal income tax and by aggressively recruiting new businesses to our beautiful city.
The issues facing us are not insurmountable. We just need fresh ideas and an approach that works. Support me in bringing back profitability and growth to Louisville.
Patrick Joseph Duerr
