LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – The Louisville Metro Council has appointed a new councilwoman to replace Judy Green. After finishing the oath, Attica Scott took her new seat as the councilwoman of District One.
But the selection did not come without controversy. Councilwoman Mary Woolridge alleges back room deals were made to give Scott the seat.
Scott replaces the controversial Judy Green who resigned just before her expulsion hearing this year. The council found Green guilty of ethics violations regarding her management of a summer youth jobs program.
