The mayor has a job with the county but is doing things for the town all day and not at his county job how is it right that county taxpayers pay him if he is not working and doing things for the county is this not taking pay for a job that you are not doing .

If he is not on a salary than I doubt his supervisor would let that happen he would have to be at the job he was hired to do .

Why do the taxpayers of Knox co. Have to pay for the sheriff department to drive there vehicles back and forth to work when they don't live in Knox co? It's my understanding that none of the officers even live in Knox. But we the taxpayers pay for them to drive the cruzers home.

The only way he can do anything is to ask Ronnie Gary or sherman first.

You douchebags need a better attack. If you want to attack Darren, then you should question him on his right wing politics and not fake conspiracies. I don't doubt that he would like to do better for the county, but his politics are misguided.

Having said that, he seems to be a typical Republican. Member of the Chamber of Commerce which is an anti tax group that hurts towns by advocating low wages for workers in the guise low taxes. I am sure he is against "Obamacare" even though the Medicaid expansion which was a part of it, helped myself and over 300,000 other Kentuckians. He would probably like to see food stamps cut while not a single tax break for oil, coal, and gas companies cut in the name of fiscal responsibility even though the make billions and do not need the tax deductions.

Im sure Gerald is proud if his son. But he should be embarrassed of his sons politics. Gerald lost to that murderer Raymond Smith over the small 1% tax he instituted. That small tax is the only reason this town is paved and not a rundown craphole. That tax pays for most of this counties budget and if it didn't it would have been revoked like Geralds opponents promised at the time they ran against.

How does pickard think this is right and on the other hand how does west think it is right that he milks the county for a job he isn't doing and is not at but is collecting a check for from the county tax payers
