Meet the people behind House of Ruth! Today we’re introducing you to Board Member L. Joe Dunman, Managing Attorney/Assistant General Counsel for the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights…
How long have you been on the House of Ruth board? This is my second time on the House of Ruth board. I first served from 2016 to 2017 before moving to Morehead, KY. I rejoined the board in August of 2022 after moving back to Louisville.
The best part about being on the board at House of Ruth? Being a member of the board allows me to be part of an excellent organization with a noble mission and an excellent staff. In a time when housing is scarce and expensive for everyone, House of Ruth offers help to people who already have enough to worry about. I’m grateful to be a part of that effort.
Favorite thing to do in your free time? My favorite thing to do when not working is to take evening walks with my wife and daughter through our neighborhood. Never a dull moment when a five-year-old leads the march.
Favorite movie of all time? My favorite movie of all time is also the greatest movie of all time: Airplane!
The album you could listen to every day? I’m a big metal fan and the album I could listen to every day is The Great Cold Distance by the Swedish band Katatonia. It’s a classic.
Quote to live by? Whenever I fell down as a kid, my dad would pick me up and say: “Son, it will feel better when it stops hurting.” He was never wrong.
One more fun fact about you? I drink entirely too much Coke Zero.
