Mason Mayor Mindy Kearns was given sanctions totaling $1,750 because of improper employment and payments from the Town of Mason, according to the commission. Kearns admitted to appointing herself as the town's water and sewer commissioner and also voting for a raise for the position, according to the conciliation agreement.

Kearns agreed to repay the increased compensation of $1,250 and also to stop accepting payments for the position. Kearns also received a public reprimand and a $500 fine.

Hope you dont use that same mentality with a rapist. Wrong is wrong. If she is a thief, which kinda sounds like she is, then she should be removed

It certainly was NOT theft. Every mayor for the past 20 years has held both positions . No one ever knew it was against the Ethic board rules til now. She paid the money back -- whopee!!! 1250.00- sure wasn't getting rich on that in a years time.

She works her a$$ off for this town. We wouldn't have anything if it wasn't for her!!!!! She has tons of $ of her own. I don't think 1250 broke her or made her rich!! Get over it. Go bash these real thieves and drug heads that never get caught doing anything wrong. Of course 1 great woman in mason gets in trouble while all the low lifes get away Scott free. Crazy!!! Respect her and her family for everything they do

She is the primary reason these people arent being put in jail. She has the authority to put the heat on the criminal activity, but chooses to focus her efforts elsewhere

Well i agree with one thing she is not above the law and no one is.I used to be a cop in mason and recently with in the last year put an application in for the police dept and was not even contacted for an interview by the chief of police.I strongly enforced the laws then as I would again but I think that for what ever reason the law in small towns are kind of afraid of the council and mayor.I arrested my mayor when I was their and he understood I had a job to do and never put me in fear of my job.What people need to understand is that the law is for everyone not just a select few and if you break the law then you should be charged acordingly.As one person mentioned that mendy has plenty of money and we all know money talks.You live in a great town and county be proud of it and if u r not happy move to vegas.I now live in Barboursville and miss mason county because of its beauty and good people.Mark.S.
