Jan Yonts files, at the last moment of time, to be the only person running for Mayor of Greenville. The next day after Mayor DeArmond announces his retirement. Well played you two, well played.

Anyone wishing to run for Greenville Mayor or City Council can file anytime up until August 8, 2014. Everyone, except you apparently, knew for the past year that the mayor was going to retire at the end of his term. Give Gaylan Spurlin a call first thing Monday morning for verification and un-wad your panties.
geesh

I didn't know he was going to retire, come to think of it, never cared still don't. Can't figure out why people get so wrapped up about these little local elections for nothing jobs. Seriously if you personally don't want the job why care who gets stuck with it!

You're obviously one of those who gets their scuttlebutt from the misinformed news media. Don't you think if the mayor and Ms Yonts were going to concoct a scheme for her to become mayor, they would have waited until the last minute at the August filing deadline? Greenville is "non partisan" and any candidate can file between now and August.

Sheese!!

Glad you are a retired teacher. I wonder what other miss info you gave out during your years of teaching?

For the most part I agree, but Mayor D has helped make Greenville look better than it ever has. We have several new businesses that opened the past 4 years. I don't see to many frowning people at the summer concerts. He's added to Greenville economics and boosted morale. I hate to see him retire.
We went from a mayor that did a crap job to one that cared.

I can't disagree about new business that opened but just to enlighten me which are new in the last 4 years that are currently open, how many people do they employ, and how much have they added to tax base of Greenville. Also can anyone tell how much revenue is generated by the summer concerts and how much is spent on those.

These are things which need to be known so we can see if there has been a boost to Greenville economics or are we simply shifting dollars from taxpayer pocket for entertainment. The only way to show there is benefit is with numbers, I would think these would be things the city would have available, without real data it is merely a persons impression as to if there has been benefit from it,

I agree town looks much better, I question that there has been economic benefit. I seriously doubt there have been meaningful increases in jobs and tax revenue from the few little shops that I see, but perhaps I am missing something.

Please get Eddie to give us the numbers. Again not knocking anyone or what they are trying to do,,just would like to see hard facts not opinions.

Since you're so well versed in the Kentucky Revised Statues, why don't you load up your books and head over to Drakesboro and South Carrollton and see why no one has filed for mayor or council? Then head on up to Bremen and back to Powderly and Greenville and see why no one has filed for council. Finally, report back in here at 4:01 PM on August 8 and give us your findings. You also might want to turn in your "lawyer license" on your way out!

Well why don't you reply by correcting the errors so we all benefit from your wisdom. Have to say his/her post had content. Guess if you can't think on a high level you pick apart those who can?

BTW I believe ALL the above being so rude to each other are wrong, it is not 8/8 and was not the prior date posted it is 8/12/14. Might be wrong but I think 8/12 is correct, somebody check and let me know!
