After Tuesday's decisive victory, Councilwoman Angela Leet is the first female nominee for Louisville mayor in Louisville's history.
"I plan to bring a unique perspective to the mayor's office as a wife and mother," said Councilwoman Angela Leet. "As an engineer, I've spent my working life in a field made up predominantly of men. It sometimes meant I had to work harder to prove myself, but made success that much more meaningful. I plan to work just as hard to earn the votes of my community."
Angela Leet is a Louisville native, wife of an Air Force veteran, mother of 2 teenage boys, and current Metro Councilwoman. She has served on numerous Louisville non-profit boards including Habitat for Humanity, Fund for the Arts, Spalding University, and the WaterStep Advisory Committee. In 1991, she earned her Bachelor of Science from the J.B. Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville and then went on to earn Master of Civil Engineering and Master of Business Administration degrees. Leet trained as an industrial firefighter at Texas A&M and was previously certified as an Emergency Medical Technician in Texas.
