Council Members

Jesse Pruitt: District 1 Councilman

Hello neighbors.  Having lived in our city for more than 47 years now, you can say that I have seen the many faces of Lynnview.  I have watched our city grow and prosper, I can recount the years when homes were being built in this subdivision and it was one of the most sought after residences within the Louisville metropolitan area, much like the areas east of Louisville now.  I and my wife Shirley, like a lot of your neighbors, raised our children in this neighborhood.  It has been woven into our family history.  Lynnview is a part of the fabric of our life.  This city was the very foundation upon which my family was built.

For 33 years I worked for Phillip Morris in downtown Louisville, in the maintenance department.  I am blessed to be retired now, and I invest a lot of my time with woodworking projects in my shop.  I have also shared with a lot of residents my repair skills when dealing with lawn and garden equipment.

For more than 20 years now, I have served on the Lynnview City Council.  These are exciting times for our city.  I am glad to be a part of this administration.  Council will be challenged to act upon the city’s goal of doing more with less.  We want to stretch our tax dollars so they serve us all better.  I encourage each of you to be active in our city.  Volunteer to help with community activities.  Participate and encourage your neighbors to be active in our community.  Finally, use your voice to make sure the Council and the Mayor are acting in your best interest.  Attend the regular City Council meetings; Vote at the appropriate times, and possibly if you have ever thought about serving on our City Council, make that known to the Mayor and Council members, so as openings become available you could have that opportunity.

 

 


Linda Plappert: District 2 Councilwoman

Hi there, friendly Lynnview associates.  Let me introduce myself as a friendly and hopefully helpful representative of yours here in Lynnview.  My name is Linda Plappert and I’m a “foreigner” all the way from Long Island, N.Y.  However, since I’ve lived here in Lynnview for over 25 years, I’m familiar with many of the circumstances, needs, and requirements which need to be taken care of.  I am also aware of the friendly get-togethers which we can all definitely use to help boost and improve our city.  Hopefully these social issues will include you and not just the political and legal members.  Since Lynnview belongs to ALL of us, let’s ALL get involved!

Please don’t be or feel bashful to confer with me.  Yes, feel free to talk with me and express your thoughts and feelings.  I’m interested in all your ideas and suggestions, but in order for me to express them at meetings, I need to know them.  Since we can and will work together, let’s go forward and share this togetherness!

Now before I go, I want to leave you with a little “Lynnview Learning”:  “You hold the key to your own happiness, UNLOCK IT!”

 

 


Patti Garcia: District 3 Councilwoman

Hello Neighbors,

I am Patti Garcia and I am honored to be on the City Council of Lynnview.

I purchased my home on Pigeon Pass Road in 2010.  I have found Lynnview to be the perfect place to call home.

I started working for Jefferson County Government in 1968 and remained during the merger in 2002 until I retired after 36 years of service in 2004.  During my employment, I worked in Juvenile Court and The Department for Human Services.  I had the opportunity to work with juveniles, senior citizens and disabled citizens.  I also served as a Union Steward for AFSCME while working for Metro Government.   After retiring, I worked for Home Instead Senior Care.  I enjoyed working with seniors and helping them stay in their homes as long as possible

With your help we can make Lynnview the best City it can be.  I am a team player and look forward to working with our other Council members and the residents of Lynnview to move our city forward.  Together we can be stronger than ever.

Patricia Garcia (Patti)

Suzanne Stark: District 4 Councilwoman

Hello Lynnview neighbors.  I was recently appointed as the District 4 Councilwoman for our city.  I am happy to serve our community and will work with our Mayor toward common goals that unify our residents, and make our city a better place to live.  I have been in Lynnview since 1976.

I have seen our community change throughout the years.  As with all changes some things will be good, and other things will need improving.  I would like to see more people involved with the community and with their neighbors.  I want to see activities for both the young and the old, like block parties, cookouts, and other gatherings that will put faces with the names.  The yard sales that happen semi-annually currently are the only events that have neighbors walking around and greeting each other.  We need more opportunities like that.  I will be working with other council members to make sure that we do at least one quarterly function for residents.

I retired from AT&T in 1996.  Since then, I keep busy with relatives and friends.  I enjoy travelling and love eating out at new places.  I also like movies, old or new, and would like to see Lynnview do a monthly MOVIE NIGHT in the Community Center.  I attend St Ignatius Martyr Catholic Church.

I look forward to working with you in the coming months and years.  Together we can make Lynnview fun as well as home!

 


Debbie Osborn: District 5 Councilwoman

I am very delighted to have been appointed to the city council.  My husband, Joe and I have lived in Lynnview for fourteen years.  I hope that working together we can put many things back on track.  We seem to have lost focus on the core values of what Lynnview was and is about.  This did not happen over night, and it will not be resolved quickly, but together we will make it happen.  

Feel free to voice your concerns with me at our monthly meetings.  If we don’t know the answer at that time, we will work together to find the right answers to your concerns.  As a community we can make Lynnview one of the best little towns to live in.
