15 green-leaning mayors | Grist

Interesting stuff. Ranks up there with well-known green Mayors Bloomberg of New York and Nickels of Seattle.

Bowling Green. Who'da thunk? I was expecting to see "Mayor for Life" Abramson of Louisville.

Yes, we're so lucky to have her. She's liberal from California and I don't know of anyone that voted for her in the re-election but here she is.

In a lot of ways Kentucky is an environmentally conscious state. Lexington has the strictest green belt in the US and Louisville recently enacted a green belt as well which will permanently protect rural land in southern & eastern Jefferson County from development. Our fish & wildlife also put elk and turkey back into the state after 200 years of extinction from the area

I am still trying to figure out what Mayor Walker did to earn this title. Not that Bowling Green isn't a relatively clean city and very pretty, I don't know of any big environmental programs she has implemented. She has driven the realtors in town crazy having city employees go around and jerk their signs out of the yards of homes they have listed if that counts.
