Last week a link began circulating around social networks labeling Louisville as, “One of the best places to chill”. After reading the blog’s article written by a 22 year old sophomore from South Carolina, Mayor Fischer shared the link saying, “This is just too good to be true.” The article has now been shared by hundreds of people on Facebook echoing Mayor Fischers enthusiasm for a blog post written by a 22 year old in college.
“It’s an exciting time for Louisville,” said Fischer. “I was telling my wife the other night over dinner, my colleagues in Washington have no clue how chill Louisville is. Well, thanks to this blog post, the cats out of the bag.”
Mayor Fischer wants Louisville residents to know the fight isn’t over though. He’s concerned some Louisvillians may interpret the blog post to mean they don’t have to share Louisville top 10 lists in the future.
“I’m not downplaying this moment at all, and I want the citizens of Louisville to know I support them raging around the water cooler at work this week,” said Fischer. “But we’ve still got a ways to go. Don’t think next time I share a Louisville top 10 list that you don’t have to put the hard work in and click like and share. If we wanna be the next Austin or Portland, we’ve gotta make sure more 22 year olds put us in their blogs top 10 lists.”
At press time Mayor Fischer was seen welling up over the news of local rappers, Code Red, mentioning Louisville in a song they’re releasing on their Soundclick page next week.
