City Commissioner Kitty Strode, 67, has filed for re-election in November.
Strode said she is seeking a second term because she has learned a lot in her first year as a commissioner, and wants to continue the plans and project for the coming year.
“We have a community spirit that is alive and well,” she said. “I want to see city and county government relations continue to prosper for the best interest of our citizens. This includes maintaining its small-town values while creating city jobs, and promising the best quality of life possible.”
Strode, of Windridge Drive, grew up in Lexington and has lived in Clark County for 37 years. She is a 1962 graduate of Henry Clay High School. She has worked at Keeneland and Churchill Downs for 30 years as a parimutuel clerk. She attends First Christian Church.
