Contrary to most people’s attitudes towards sausage and lawmaking, Danny Slaton has a deep appreciation for the process of making both. Danny has been in government relations since 2004, after a culinary arts career in fine French cooking. He represents clients before both the Executive and Legislative branches of the Commonwealth. His love of public policy makes him an asset to Top Shelf’s clients, bringing in-depth analysis and attention to detail to our advocacy work.
At Top Shelf Lobby, Danny focuses on the policy-side of our government relations work– primarily in the worlds of health care, media law and the First Amendment, as well as education. He also has an intimate knowledge of Kentucky’s tax policies, both at the state and local levels.
Danny is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Boston. He lives in Louisville with his wife Elizabeth, his son Henry and daughter Lila. Danny is the Vice President of the Board of Trustees of Down Syndrome of Louisville, as well as Secretary of the State Advisory Panel for Exceptional Children.
