LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Mayor Fischer uses his State of the City address to go after e-cigarettes.
In his seventh State of the City address, Fischer says he will ask the Metro Council to add hookah and e-cigarettes to the Metro smoking ban.
The mayor also touted the $29.5 million grant that will start the rebuilding of the Russell neighborhood and change Ninth Street "from a divide to a bridge."
Fischer made reference to the 118 homicides Louisville recorded in 2016, saying those in the most impacted neighborhoods deserved better.
He also made mention of the city's immigrant community, a group who he says is "afraid" and "shaken to their core" by the recent actions President Donald Trump.
