Roger Ford has his big ole wife working in the jailer's office, but all she does is shop online and talk on the phone. Roger Ford's wife best friend does all the work, while the Fiscal Court has to give the jail money to pay for the two women to sit and talk all day. I sure hope the jail kitchen isn't feeding both of the women in the office, if it is, no wonder the budget is blown.

If Roger Ford would put his wife on a liquid diet she might lose 100 pounds. Why do the people of Marshall County put up with this corruption. Roger is a terrible jailer for allowing his family to suck money from the taxpayer and just sit and eat on the job.
Roger will hire the rest of his family before long.
Roger makes around $75,000.00 to golf most days when the sun is shining. That should be a felony.

The Fiscal Court should cut the money it hands to Roger Ford to blow on his family working in the jail system.
Roger Ford should go golfing on Saturday and Sundays instead of during work hours.

I think whoever posted this is the same person. You seem to have anger issues. Why not try and get your life in order before coming on here and posting this slander. I went to school with Roger and Marty and I can tell you that both of them are upstanding guys. Are they perfect? No but who is. Roger does a great job and so does Marty so take your chump self on to somewhere else if you dont like it.

I just got out of jail so coming from someone like me might not matter much but I know it's the best jail I have ever been in it is very clean and the food is good sometimes there could be more of it but very good. There is a jail full of pissed off inmates because the new medical company came in and took them off
Meds they don't need like loratabs and Zanax and I can tell you I was one of them but now I'm so grateful I feel so much better and hope and pray to keep getting better. And you should be ashamed about what you said about his wife she was so kind to all of us she is very pretty and has beautiful hair no she is not super skinny but not fat either. Im grateful for Roger and the jail it changed my life.

Why should Roger Ford be able to hire his entire family. Get rid of one of the cupcakes that sit in the front office doing nothing.
Does Roger Ford really make $75,000.00

Roger is a very good man. It's clear most people who vote in Marshall Couty understand that and vote him in office by a landslide. That pretty much explains how he is doing running the office the people voted him in for. Let's support our elected officials.

We need to have someone run against Roger Ford and we will see how smart Roger Ford is without all the taxpayer money he is sucking from the pockets of the Marshall County people.

<quoted text>Roger Ford is one of the best jailers I've seen. My son was in jail there and he spoke with us when we had questions even came in on his day off Sunday.He cares about the inmates and their families!!!!!!THEIR GOOD PEOPLE!!!!!!
As I said I’m sure Mr. Ford will get the vote of the inmates and their families. By the fact that you were talking to Ford on Sunday I would guess you go to church with him. I also think your son got special treatment while he was in jail. He will probably not mind going back again. It’s a lot easier then getting up and going to work everyday. We need a jailer that will treat the inmates like prisoners not like guess. If we want to stop the repeat offenders and do something about the drug use and other crimes in this county the criminals must know the are going to be punished for their crimes and not receive a slap on the hand and a vacation at the tax payers expense. Thanks for your comments about how the inmates and their families are given special treatment by Mr. Ford. I would hope that the inmates conceder there jailer as there friend but as someone that they would not want to see again.

Wow I don't normally post on antthing like this but this is rediculous. Roger Ford is one of the best and most liked in the county. I had the pleasure of getting to know him many years ago when he was my Sons little league coach and to this Day my son would say that was one of the best experiences of his life. My Daughter was in Hopes youth group ar church and would come home amazed at the awful things she would say about her Father and his family now at that age I'm sure she was encouraged by her Mother and Family but Years later I had the opportunity to know Hope as an adult I dated a women that Lived in walnut court and believe me she Ran Roger in the ground every day that is until the cops would come out and for a disturbance caused by her then she would throw his name everywhere. The Fords were good to her she had opportunity she wanted no part if it! She has got to be getting close to 30 and has never worked she had rather suck off the tax payer and do anything and I do mean anything to make a buck! But then again we can't control what our grown children do. My kids went to school with Ashley and her siblings they are good kids things will turn around my Son went through a few dumb tears but finally grew up. Keep your head up Roger and Mrs. Roger your fine people and remember Its a small percent of people on this site and it's probably the same one under different name. Keep up the good work!

It must not be against any rules for family members to work in city or county positions because Sheriff Kevin Byers wife works at the sheriffs office

Marshall County is the single most corrupt county I have ever stepped foot in.

Inmates that have a real chance to get out of jail and go on and do something, Roger tries to tie up in the legal system. He talks down to women, he has been in jail himself for being trashed drunk, his father was a misogynistic pig, and Roger isn't any better.

It's the buddy system, and in Marshall County, it is alive and well.

So were is our elected officials who ran on the ticket to get change for our county, to make sure everything is fair and on the up and up? Has her values changed now that she is in office. She should be aware of these issues and not need topix to bring to her attention. Hope she isn't running sccared already

I have been in the jail before and saw Laurie Ford and her friend. I wondered why the county needs two women up front. Is it fair that Roger Ford hires all of his family at the jail?

What amazes me is you people think that our elected officials have the power to Walk on water you think they can do what they want when they want and how they want has it ever crossed your mind they have the power to find out who you cowards are that hide behind a fake name. I would be glad to say my name but heck you mean mean spirited people would attack my wife and family. I know for a fact there are several law suits pending. Do you think that these officials dont know our attorney general. People can get posts removed why do you think this is still here with all the power these people have. It's because it has to stay here to be monitored. Remember the old saying what goes around comes around ! Look up the KRS on defamation of character. It is punishable by law!!! Maybe Mr. Ford will have the pleasure of serving you your oats a time or two. Keep up the good work Roger you do a great job! And you people need to check the facts before you slander all over topix his wife went to work there in 1992 at that time she didn't even know Roger nor was he the Jailer, the nurse was hired by a medical provider and is not a county employee he has never ever hired a relative. Looking so forward to the day when your names are revealed not only on the thread but some others as well.
