Louisville Metro Councilwoman Cindi Fowler http://wfpl.org en Two Politically Different Women Join Metro Council http://wfpl.org/post/two-politically-different-women-join-metro-council <p>The Louisville Metro Council has the most female members since 2007 with the addition of two new members: Democrat Cindi Fowler and Republican Marilyn Parker.</p><p>The freshman lawmakers were sworn-in this week and both hope to add new perspectives for their districts and respective political caucuses.</p><p>Fowler and Parker come into council with very different backgrounds.</p><p>Fowler is a former legislative aide and replaces her old boss, Bob Henderson, who retired. She is a graduate of Emerge Kentucky, which helps train Democratic women to run for office and won a seat that the GOP had hoped to pick up last fall.</p><p>Asked about the biggest difference between her and Henderson, Fowler says her predecessor served his constituents well, but didn't always have an open ear.</p><p>"I would say probably I would listen a lot more," she says.</p><p> Tue, 08 Jan 2013 20:24:43 +0000 Phillip M.
