What is going on at city hall and the mayor. He is spending money right and left. Spent millions on land the city did not need, then got a new 4 wheeler to rid around on it at the tax payers expence. He says that EMS is saving money now that RESCUE has moved to the fire dept.. But all you have to do is look at the budget at the fire dept. now to see there is no savings at all. If anything it is costing more than it was before. Now he has went and replaced people at the EMS for no good reason. Demoting them because he was told to I guess. The city council should ban together and put a stop to him, But most of them are either in his pocket or don't have the balls to standup and do it.

Sounds like a disgruntled EMS worker? Maybe the mayor replaced those who let the oxygen run out on that lady

All the politicians are still spending like drunken sailors...it's almost obscene..Especially with what the debt has gotten to..I believe they think that they had better spend all they can before someone who replaces them can..we are spent out and the country is bankrupt and our silly little mayor is acting like we are going thru a economic boom..he better get his head out of the clouds and realize what a bad shape he's putting our city in.It's real easy to spend when someone else is paying the bill.

No believe it or not he is supposed to be a Conservative Republican well I guess he is Conservative like George Bush. I am never voting for a Republican again I can't afford to.

Brenda had about as much business being Mayor as Elmer Fudd would've. What exactly did she do in two terms to help this town? Can you please spell out what she accomplished?

And before her, what exactly did Paul Osborne accomplish except to get rid of Bobby Miller?

And we all know all the corruption that occured in the three decades of Miller's tenure.

I don't know where all this Charlie Shaw talk is coming from, but that man has done a lot more for this community than most people ever have in their life.

And our current mayor at least has a vision for the future. You may not agree with it, but at least he's not just sitting on his hands.

The biggest problem is he's hurt a few egos and fired a few problem people.

And as for the ambulance running out of oxygen, all I know is what the legal lawsuit says....

I highly doubt you can name who I am. There are a lot of people that Charlie has helped over the years in a variety of ways. He was very supportive and has always been very supportive of many of the things we have in this community. Rescue suffered without him. Say what you want, but it just did.

Funny how he is respected across the state of Kentucky and nation for fire and rescue training and yet he lives right here and people don't even recognize how valuable of an asset he could be.

Did you here the interview with Larry Smith on the Big Dawg? 2 things I noticed in that interview about Mr. Young,
1 - "I" did this, "I" did that, "I" had this done, "I" had this idea, "I" had that idea, I, I, I, IIIIIIIIIII. I dont know what this town ever did before him, or why there are so many employees on the City payroll because according to his interview HE is doing all the work. He most definitely has a personal agenda to run for another office and doing all he can to make sure he gets the credit for whatever is happening. I personally am not big on someone with the "I" syndrome.
2 - He seamed to be very fake,(just my opinion). He must have prepared the whole interview himself, the questions and the answers. Easy to tell he was just reading the answers word for word. But I guess for as much as "HE" as done there is no way he could remember it all!!! It just seamed to me very fake, robotic, and very insincere!

Well, don't know if any of you know this, but....the mayor put us on a 1% occupational tax for what reason but to make money for themselves. They do NOT put the money back into our town, they put it in their personal pocket, bank account, etc. Brenda used the money to finish paying off her personal bills cause she KNEW we would not put her back in office for a third term. Now it has been said that Tony bought a 4 wheeler, well there you go, he used the 1% tax to do so, and yeah making us pay for the fuel and upkeep. And then, put a McMahan in a spot that is 'supposed' to bring more jobs into Campbellsville but yet we are about to lose @100 jobs because it is cheaper to put an inmate to work then someone who cares. All these people that are in office ALREADY had money before getting put in office and that is the problem, they can buy whoever and put them in their pockets. We need someone in offices that are just like all of us on here, just common people who care about what is going on. Of course there will be someone to come on here and bitch cause we shouldn't talk about others, but this shows that we care, and the last time I checked, we still have this right. You better believe that the only way this right will be taken from me and a lot of others that I know is the same as the right to bear arms....from my cold dead hands.

McMahan was hired long before Mayor Young took office. He was hired after Kevin Sheilly left which has been 6 or 7 years ago?

What proof do you have that the city funds are paying for "personal bills"?

What kind of four wheeler was bought?
