Dear Fair Firm truthful, a bit of a correction to your comments. I used to work at the Courthouse and am very familiar with how each office is set up and operates. Every official is independently elected. While there is some overlap on their duties, no elected official is the "boss" or "supervisor" of the other. Members of the Fiscal Court (Peggy Hawkins, Scotty Lee, Bryan Durham and W.L. Miller) and the Judge Exec.(Tommy Turner) have no say in who the Jailer, Mac Trumbo, hires, fires, what he pays them and so on. Mac is the same as the County Clerk, County Attorney, Sheriff and others. Each has their own employees and the employees answer to them and no one else. I mention this to let you and others know that you should put a great deal of thought in to how you vote in the Jailers race. The Jailer is responsible for working under the rules and regulations of the Kentucky Corrections Cabinet. Make sure you elect a person that can!

sure sounds like you know exactly what you are talking about No Show..so I stand/sit corrected..however, I still say to the folks on here going banana's..they/you can go talk to the Judge Exec and if I was a betting man..Tommy would say something to Mac about it..maybe "can't" change it...but I'm for sure he would bring it up..I do know they control the jail's budget..so overspend their budgets I bet Tommy tells em what to do and what not to do then..so if we can't get their attention one way we get another..heh...!!..folks can still go talk to Mac or Travis..they most definitely are in the loop and as I said before..have they..??..in one word..it has more than likely not happened, if ever..however, this time we make it two words..VERY DOUBTFUL..so thanks for giving the straight dope No Show..I still feel until everyone on here whining about "everyone" at the jail being screwed up..incompetent..etc..so fire em..fry em..etc..go on down to work there..they start at 8.50 an hour..they give ya bennies after a probation period..then if you still feel the jail full of ninken poops you can go be part of the solution..I most strongly agree also..to be careful who you vote for..not just for here in Larue County, but Frankfort and Wash D C too..know what they stand for..know why they stand for it..vote the person not the party..actually though..vote however you want..because that and freedom of speech (even though some of the comments on here fire me up)..I would still defend to the death your right to say it or vote for it..God Bless ya and God Bless America..that is my answer for the day..

Yeah Fair, you make some good points. I know from my prior work that the jail is probably the most problem area the county (whether it be the Fiscal Court, Judge/Exec., Sheriff, etc) has to deal with. I've seen the Judge/Exec. so mad he could spit nails. Tommy is too nice a guy to publicly criticize Mac or any other elected official but I know he stays frustrated at the things that go on. As you say, the county (fiscal court) does set the budget. But, they are still somewhat at the mercy of what the jail spends. In the end the county has to balance the books. Some of it they (Mac or the county) can't control. If a guy is in jail and has cancer, the jail (and ultimately the county) has to pay for his chemo, etc. which can run into the tens of thousands. I've heard the Judge say on several occasions the state should be running the jail as all the persons convicted are convicted of state charges, not county. I think I have to agree with him.

Whoever is going to be jailer, which I really don't have a dog in this race, but I feel like running my mouth so here it goes. For the Past 25 yrs the Larue County Jailor can be discribed as this "NO BALLS" The inmates are there for disipline, yet they are pampered with cigs cell phones and drugs. Open visits and practically its just like 4-h camp and they recieve family visits. Start utilizing discipline please????????

Its sad that every body wants to get on here and dog down Mac when there has been less deaths in LCDC than in any other jail. You're just mad that YOU have been in the jail more time than Mac has and now you've run out of petty crimes to commit so you can go back and visit all your gay lovers in there. You need to get a grip on reality because Mas is a very good jailer and helps out everyone that he can. Its just a shame that you're too big of an idiot to realize this....Peace!
