Araminta Knight, former candidate for Ludlow City Council, was sworn in this month as interim councilmember in replacement of Brie Banks, who recently moved. The council appointed Knight, and she will serve the remainder of 2023.
A Louisville native, Knight moved to Covington after graduating college with a degree in political science. She’s worked as a direct care professional and is now in the tech sector. She and her husband renovated a 100-year-old house in Ludlow and chose to raise their child there.
“When looking for a place to put down our roots, we fell in love with the small town feel of Ludlow, just minutes from downtown,” Knight said. “Since then, we’ve fallen even more in love with our community, the local businesses, and our neighbors, and are looking forward to raising our child here.”
Knight will be serving on the Parks and Recreation Committee and said she looks forward to contributing to the Ludlow Memorial Park renovations.
“I’d love to improve handicap accessibility and look at what other features we can bring to the park to benefit our Ludlow families,” she said.
In November, there will be a special election which will determine whether Knight fulfills the rest of Bank’s term through 2024. She hopes to continue serving as long as the constituents will have her.
