Surely not those devilish gambling machines..... I'm sure he forced those stores to share the profits as well.

This is the only post that has made complete sense. Of course there is a little battle in the city and county that has caused all these problems and Thompson probably hasn't even figured out what went wrong. If I were David I'd be turning the tables now on Hall and getting the AG down on him!

Makes me mad that one politician would turn on the other like that! Let the public decide who gets an office and not rat each other out.

Who gives a rats ass about if the mayor gave away a few free passes to the water park?? That's what he should do!! Who care if a project goes out to the highest bidder??? Sometimes you get why you pay for!! Who cares if he lets his wife be a manager at the water park?? The city looks better than ever!!! Just look around..... 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.
I may be mistaken and out of line but it sure looks a lot like more than a "little" favors, embezzlement, cheating,,lyeing, contracting and all that other stuff. On more than several occasions she talked out loud about all the $$$ they were bringing in.

That's the only post that makes sense to you because you're ignorant. It's not a battle (the council members requested the audit), there's blatant corruption/stealing going on in this city. It's evidenced. THOROUGHLY evidenced. Read the audit report. David's response didn't argue or place blame because the evidence speaks for itself. Many of these evidenced wrong-doings are being referred to the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General. You want to know why? BECAUSE THEY'RE CRIMES. This isn't the typical topix bashing/gossip you cretins come here for. Here's a link to the official audit (granted it may be too many words for you/won't "make complete sense"): http://apps.auditor.ky.gov/Public/Audit_Repor...

Tell me what office in our county that does not have their wife or family member working in the office he's wife was just at the water park and never paid by check thru the city she got all concession money but bought all that went into the concession and paid for her workers know what you are talking about.
The park is owned by the city. That's the problem. She wasn't supposed to get all the concession money. And the city bought what went into the concession. It's not her money. It's not her choice to keep it or not pay taxes on it. That's stealing. Take your own advice and know what you're talking about.

Have you ask or read Wendy's contract. I'm pretty sure it says you get paid by keeping the concession money but have to put everything in it yourself and pay your own workers
