Jonathan Mattingly (John) served as a Louisville, Kentucky police officer for 21 years. He has spent most of his adult life helping those who couldn’t help themselves and protecting the innocent from the criminals who prey upon the vulnerable. Fifteen of those years were spent targeting violent criminals and drug dealers, and doing his part to get the guns and poison that destroy families off the streets. Born in Louisville, John was born and raised in a Baptist preacher’s home, inspiring him to become a public servant and have a heart to help others. John and his wife have 4 children and 2 grandchildren.
