Well you know what? Whether you like the Porters or you don't the truth is that it looks like he and his boss Bonnie have gotten away with every little dirty & illeagle thing you could think of while he has been mayor. I remember when the public was up in arms over stuff he had done but now you don't hear anything. Yes it looks like everyone has given up and he has gotten off scott free. The only people that is even trying is the good folks at The Paintsville Herald. A lot of people keep talking about throwing him out. Well the City council won't throw him out because that don't have enough votes. He got Bill Mike Runyon and David Vanhoose on city council because they will do anything he wants. After all they were the only ones that voted against selling his private caddy. If you know something call the editor at the Herald and they will check it out. Or better yet call the state police, fbi, or the state attorney general. He recently told a friend of mine that he is going to run again for mayor. He thinks that everybody is just going to let everything go away and be swept under the rug and that he will be mayor again. Truth is that this will probably happen.

Eulas should have won if they ran up a bill with him!! If it sold for $7500.00 like the paper said and the city owed Crace $5000.00 then the city made over $2000.00 dollars. That is simple math. But evidently you don't understand the big picture. It was against the law for him to drive it. He was told a long time ago that the state attorney general said it was illeagle but he did it anyway. Don't you understand that??$7500.00 for a piece of shit aint too bad. Go back to sucking up to him and Bonnie because he will probably get reelected.

Hey there. Looser the mayor don't pick the city council it is a office that one has to be voted into by the public, It's called a election they where all elected its a two year term, The mayor is a four year term he to was elected by the public. I hope you can understand this.

Dont worry about our town or our Mayor unless you live in the city. Mistakes are being corrected and eyes are watching the city council and we are proud of our town. Get use to it we like what progress we have made over the last few years.

That is exactly my thoughts too if I were mayor I would be sporting that big nice chevy suburban around! I would tell whom ever didnt like It tough SHIT!!! Im the mayor of the city Im driving It so try or do what ever you have to do but untill then Im driving It untill they order me out of it with guns drawn or they haul it away. I would show some people that I was tired of being shit on and criticized all the time!

The people out in the county seems to stick their noses in the city politics and esp one woman. If the people of the town likes Bob Porter and his wife what is it to do with them???? We vote our town elected officials not county people

I have never said that the Mayor shouldn't drive a city owned vehicle.I said he shouldn't drive one illeagely,get your facts straight and that if he is doing this what else is he doing that he shouldn't be. I don't know what Dixon had to do with this conversation, unless you have some kind of personal vendetta with him, but yeah he did drive a city owned vehicle. Just like the FIRE CHIEF before him, and the FIRE CHIEF after him, Rick Ratliff and two or three others in the fire dept. Just like the chief of police and all of the city police always has. Just like the city street foreman and most of his men. You see them all the time out driving in them. So what is your point??

After Bob got kicked out of his home near Dairy Queen, didn't he move out of the city to the Van Lear area? Does that make him still eligible to be the mayor of Paintsville, even though he doesn't live within the city limits?

Well the city has always even long before mayor porter has let the Craces do the towing in the city because of there location and there many years of towing experience love them or hate them they get the JOB DONE!!!! What if there is a bad wreck or just a car broken down in the street would it be smart to have a towing company 8 or ten miles from the city to do the towing? What about the price of fuel these days? A towing company that travels farther would have to charge more for a tow bill cause of the price of fuel not counting paying the driver so the rate of a tow would have to be more than Craces fee so its simple math for anybody to figure out why the city would want to use Craces.

You think the city owes him a vehicle. I guess you think he should receive free utilies too?..... The ride should of been sold, the bill should of been paid, the extra money needs to be put into the DARE program.
