louisvilletickets.com 118 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 10.18 has disagreed with the president on? "I don't, I haven't — you know what? I'm focused on our local issues right now. I'm focused on the things from that perspective that I can directly impact and control: public safety, infrastruc- ture, the environment for economic growth and better wages." Outside, while picking up trash, Leet takes a few steps, bends over, scrapes up a fleck of a crumpled metal wrapper and shoves it in the bag. She takes a few more steps and scuffs the bottom of her shoe on a piece of white paper embedded in the asphalt, loosens it up and tosses it in the bag. It's peak sunburn hour, and Leet catch- es her breath in between complaints about the drug epidemic and halfway houses. "We should be talking about homeownership," she says. "We used to always talk about homeownership, and I've seen that type of conversation go away in favor of: Let's just build more multi-family dwellings. When you own something, you take better care of it. ere's nothing that anybody can say to convince me otherwise." Of course, it's one thing to recognize the city's ills, another to solve them. "I told her, 'You understand, if you get elected mayor, on day one you're not gonna solve all those problems; they're just gonna be yours now,'" her husband says later. "She's like, 'Bring it on. Fine. Put it on my shoulders.'" One of the women in the group comes over to discuss tearing down housing projects. In the past, the wom- an says, she has seen clusters of people relocate to other neighborhoods and negatively impact those areas. "ose people in Beecher Terrace, they're gon- na need somewhere to go," she says. "What's your take on that, Angela?" "Ugh," Leet sighs and pauses. "It's just so complicated, ain't it?" "It's very complicated. I was just saying that I think homeownership is exceedingly important," she says. "I have lots of different ideas. ey're not all well-thought-out yet, but…." Leet resumes the trash hunt, spotting a few more specs of garbage that the other women missed on their round. "Hard to stop once you start," she says, "''cause it never ends."
