After first naming the committee that will search for a new health director, Mayor Greg Fischer has appointed the members of two more committees. The latest panels will oversee the review of Metro Animal Services and the search for a new director.

From the Mayor’s office:

The six-person committee to conduct the performance review includes:

  • Allison Woosley, a CPA and animal advocate
  • Lindsy Wallace, Director of Operations for the Kentucky Humane Society
  • Karen Little, Alley Cat Advocates
  • Dr. Lee Hankins, veterinarian at Springhurst Animal Hospital
  • Mike Norman, Auditor, Louisville Metro Government
  • Jim Brammell, Chief Engineer, Louisville Water Company and member of SPOT Fund

The eight-person committee to conduct a national search for a new director includes:

  • Sadiqa Reynolds, Chief of Community Building for Mayor Fischer
  • Lori Redmon, Kentucky Humane Society
  • David Hall, Floyd County/New Albany Animal Control and Shelter
  • Terri Cardwell, business owner and member of SPOT Fund
  • Patti Swope, business executive and animal advocate
  • Kellie Watson, Director of Human Resources, Louisville Metro Government
  • Jessica Reid, No Kill Louisville
  • Police Chief Robert White or his designee

Once the search committee narrows its list to six finalists, a separate review team will provide additional input and narrow the list to three, which it will recommend to the Mayor. That review team includes:

  • Sharon Mays, Shamrock Society
  • Bunny Zeller, Animal Care Society
  • Ellen Cullinan, citizen and volunteer
  • Donna Herzig, Louisville Kennel Club
  • Metro Council Member Kelly Downard
  • Metro Council Member Tina Ward-Pugh

Council members Kelly Downard and Tina Ward-Pugh were likely among the clearest choices for the final group. Both were active in questioning former director Gilles Meloche whenever he appeared in the council.
