Famed Olmstead Parks Conservancy will present Mitch McConnell with its top award on Friday, October 26 during the Roaring 20s Gala at the Henry Clay in Louisville. He’ll be receiving the Frederick Law Olmsted Award for Distinguished Leadership for his “contribution towards advancing our mission to restore, preserve and enhance Louisville’s Olmsted parks and parkways.”
Anyone else rolling their eyes at this laughable irony?
McConnell– the man who consistently receives a 0% rating from the League of Conservation Voters— is receiving an award from one of the most prominent parks and preservation organizations in the world.
Anti-McConnell groups have organized a demonstration to take place on Friday 10/26 from 5:00 – 8:30 P.M. at 3rd & Chestnut in Louisville.
Way to go Olmstead for drawing negative attention. We’re betting an entire bushel of apples that your membership could have come up with a much more deserving recipient of the award.
