Kentuckians Value Fairness!

Louisville mayor candidate Tyler Allen, an ally of statewide fairness, joined from all over Kentucky to participate in the annual lobby day and "Kentuckians Value Fairness!" rally sponsored by the Statewide Fairness Coalition.

It's the primary goal of the Statewide Fairness Coalition to pass a statewide fairness law, that would include sexual orientation and gender identity as a protection in existing discrimination law. Tyler has committed that when he's mayor, he's willing to speak before the Kentucky General Assembly on behalf of how Louisville's fairness amendment protections have been great for our city, and how they could make Kentucky better if they were extended statewide.

Leadership Louisville Thing

Leadership Louisville selected Louisville's 128 "Connectors" and they are being honored for bringing the region together. W00t! W00t! Congratulations to all those that made the cut. See today's CJ.

Yes, Besides Tyler appearing to have made the list twice, slide #2 and #125, it looks like his pastor, Jud Hendrix also made the list. As did our pioneer supporter Metro Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh. YAY!

No word yet on when the CJ web guy is going to take down the 2nd picture of Tyler and replace it with who that person really is. We here at the campaign are betting that person is YOU!

From St James...

This campaign has always been about listening. Right after we started out at the St. James Art Show we were listening to the gripes, and hopes for Louisville from it's citizens. Because, as Tyler keeps saying...
"It's about a conversation."

Valley Report Endorsement!

Looks like we have a fan in Southwest Jefferson County.
"He asked me questions. Questions that were specific to Southwest Louisville, and he asked lot of them. That tells me he wants to understand what makes us tick. He wants to know what we, as a part of Greater Metro Louisville, expect from our mayor and our council. Tyler Allen is listening." -Brian Tucker,

While we're talking about endorsements, here's a couple groovy citizen endorsements from our Headquarters grand opening:

Tyler Allen Show from Gateway Towers

Today's broadcast was from the new Zirmed Gateway Towers building on the corner of W. Market Street and Roy Wilkins Parkway.

Tyler Allen Show at Zirmed Gateway Towers

Leo Coverage of Mayor Race

Phillip Bailey did a decent recap in today's Leo of what's up in the mayor's race. Mysteriously he referred to Fischer as the "frontrunner," just like Fischer refers to himself in press releases and his website. It's actually two words. We love Phillip, though, so he's already forgiven.

Also, if you haven't become a fan of Tyler Allen on facebook, now's the time. See we started out with a facebook group in Jimmy Moore's living room back in September, and now, frankly, we should have went for the gusto and started out with the fanpage. So indulge us, and become a facebook fan, too: link Thanks!

People's Forum Feedback!

The bloggers are starting to talk, and it looks like Tyler did alright. Check out Agreement-fest at Mayoral Forum by John LaFollette,

If you wanted to watch the video footage for yourself, Steve Magruder with looks to be the first to have the whole thing up online in his forum:
