I'd say David Thompson has done a great job. Has anyone ever heard of a politician that didn't bend the rules a little or favor someone a little here and there??? Hell no!!! He is good for barbourville. Done a good job.
Raymond smith bent the rules for favors to. Everyone wanted to crucify him.

Part of the audit said they hired a plumber and electrician to do work that city employees can do. Well, I guess that makes our licence worthless. I wonder how the auditer got so much power that we can order the mayor to break state law. State law, no person shall engage in the occupation of plumbing without a valid state plumbing licence. Im sure there is a simular one for electricians to, i just cant quote it.

I just spent 3 hours reading the audit and its amazing. Its unbelievable how much the street superintendent, mayor, and his wife have stolen from the city. Its way up in the tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years. Stealing aluminum recycling, pop machine money, scrap metals, and even city gravel. Those are just the petty things these jokers stole. It seems like they didnt miss a a trick when ripping off the city. These jokers should be indicted. The Advocate should print the report in full next week. Read it yourself:

Yep he done a good job, corn holed the whole little town. seems as if the lady straped on a 12 incher and helped hump the good folks. The rules were not bent they were bypassed and the folks were bent over and hammered.

Yea the mayor and his wife had this one coming! They both act like they do no wrong. Meanwhile the whole county knows different but what do you do?

nope, ain't Darren, dont know Darren, just an outsider watching two inbred political factions and their family and friends throw the usual Knox County political stuff at each other. Dumb people trying to make themselves look good by putting someone else down. The facts show the mayor and his crownies have serious problems, they must address, This darren dude just has to ignore your likes and he will be fine. Right now it seems you are probably on the loosers side. You might wanna suck up to Mr. Darren while you still can.

Who are you kidding, besides yourself? If you read the audit report the Thompsons and Jimmy Baker stole tens of thousands of dollars and services, if not hundreds of thousands over the years.
