Chris Brady Announces Re-election Campaign for the JCPS Board of Education

LOUISVILLE – Chris Brady announced today he is seeking re-election to the Jefferson County Board of Education representing District 7.  

“Over the last four years student academic achievement has improved, the graduation rate is higher, the drop out rate is lower, more students are college and career ready, the district’s budget process is more transparent, and infrastructure planning is becoming a reality.  The district’s strategic plan, Vision 2020, which I helped create and support, provides a roadmap to improving our school district even further.  I’m excited to serve again and work to ensure this plan is properly implemented.”  

“These next years will bring challenges and opportunities to our district, such as what affect the new federal regulations of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) will have, the way we provide funding for Vision 2020, improving teacher recruitment and retention, supporting the Say Yes to Education initiative, and more.  Experienced board leadership is critical to guiding our district through these changes; experience which I have obtained over these last few years of service.”

“As a JCPS parent of two young boys, I am deeply invested in the improvement of our district.  My experience as a parent and as an educator with a background of teaching in our public schools, at the university level, and in the private sector provides me with unique insights, ideas, perspectives, and strategies, all of which I have brought to our school board.” Brady added.

Brady, 45, is a Louisville native, a graduate of Western Kentucky University, and a medical technology trainer for Norton Healthcare.  He lives near Jeffersontown with his wife of 14 years and his two young sons.  Mr. Brady also serves on the Kentucky School Boards Association Board of Directors.  KSBA is the leading advocate, resource, and training provider for public school boards across Kentucky.   

Brady has severed on the board for his neighborhood association, organizing local Brightside cleanups, and volunteering for the Floyd’s Fork Creek Sweep.  He has been a member and volunteer for several organizations including the Farmer Elementary PTA, Focus Louisville, The Neighborhood Institute, and the Young Professionals Association of Louisville.    

JCPS Board of Education District 7 includes communities in Jeffersontown, Fern Creek, Middletown, Barrytown, Fisherville, and most of southeast Jefferson County.
