In our October issue, we devoted 14 pages to the upcoming mayoral election. It’s safe to say Louisvillians are familiar with incumbent Mayor Greg Fischer — pro-business leanings, passion for all things “compassion,” not exactly charismatic at a podium. We sat down with him for an in-depth Q&A, allowing us to challenge him on his last seven years. The October cover asks the question: Does Mayor Fischer deserve a third term? We also covered his Republican challenger, Metro Council member Angela Leet. Because Leet is less familiar to the public, we decided to publish a profile of her, instead of a Q&A. The longform narrative profiles we aspire to produce at Louisville Magazine present subjects as three-dimensional people, and that involves scenes, settings and character description. We hope the two companion pieces give our readers a better sense of both candidates.
