How is it that Roger Tomes GCPVA was forced to retire because he was charged for nepitism for hiring his son but Gary Logsdon can hire his entire family from his wife to every niece and nephew he has? Not only has he employed his entire family he pays them top notch salaries. Something's wrong with this good ole boy small town picture!

Now wait just a blasted minute! You are talking about our county judge executive! He has been in office since 1994 and has a long list of distinquished accomplishments. Let me list a few ... Well, nothing comes to mind, but he is a good ol boy! If he didn't hire his relatives, our unemployment rate would be even higher than what it is! And, did I mention he is a good ol boy?

I don't disagree about him being a good ole boy however the pay he sets from them isn't justified.$40,000+ for the "dog catcher" Are you serious? Our local law enforcement doesn't make that kind of money.

We can look the other way in this situation because of his accomplishments over the last 18 years! After all, he gave us a skate park!!!!!

Or what about the occupational tax we all have to pay. That's become a personal slush fund for the Judge and his family.

Well, this good old girl is getting tired of paying county taxes which were only supposed to be paid for a couple years. All the dog catcher does is pick up dogs in one area and drop them off some other area in the county. I know people who have seen him do it. They told me he stopped and let dogs loose in their area and they called his boss and told him they better come back and get them and not dump any more in their area. So his boss who happens to be closely related knows and he didn't get in trouble for it. It makes me so mad we are paying county taxes every week and he drives around in a free truck with free gas we pay for 24/7. I heard at one time he didn't even own a personal vehicle, but who would if your family had all the county money at their dispersal and gave you a free truck and gas and you weren't out any insurance? Wouldn't we all like to have family ties like that? It would be nice if Logsdon took some of the money wasted on that and spent it on fixing a few roads around here. All I hear every time I ask for something is "no money to fix it "There seems to be plenty of money to furnish his family with jobs and free 24 hour transportation. I have to find my own way to work everyday, which means buy my own car, insurance, and gas. Why doesn't Logsdon's family? The rest of the county workers drive to the garage every day in their own vehicles why doesn't his family have to? That is a big waste of money. The truck would last a lot longer if he were made to leave it parked and pick it up every morning like it should be done, also how much gas it would save on county tax payers. I'm sick of their wasting. Why can't something be done and who can do it? I say boot him out should have been done a long time ago. Somebody needs to step up and run against him and get him outta there.

They have 2 useless dog catchers not just 1 but 2? Does the city of Louisville even have 2 dog catchers? Come on wake up. Logsdon's wasteful spending is on the same level as Obama. Are they brothers? Who can I report this to? What office in Frankfort can we contact to investigate this scandalous bunch of criminals? They already got investigated by FEMA for wasting money donated for ice storm relief. How would another investigation look? Somebody spread the word to Logsdon get ready for another investigation. The heat is on Good Ol Boy. Get your paperwork in order cause I'm contacting Frankfort to find out why you are wasting my and other county taxpayers money.

Why don't they let Scotty Haycraft be dog catcher. He does a good job. You could replace both of them with him and get a lot more dogs caught. What about the garbage cop who gets paid to ride around looking for dumps. How can you ride around looking for illegal dumps and cut hair at the same time? Do you furnish him a free ride 24 /7 too Logsdon? That Bimb o Sanders is the best truck driver in that garage and they run him all over the country picking up parts. During the ice storm he was the only one you could get a hold of. Nobody else would even answer the phone. He should be in charge of the garage. When you call him he at least answers and doesn't lie to you. Steve don't have a clue. He is too busy running around the county sticking his nose everywhere. At least Bimb o is where he is supposed to be.
free ride

Are they hiring I want a free ride? Sounds almost as good as food stamps and welfare. Free gas and free vehicle and you don't have to have 2 or 3 kids to get it like you do food stamps.

Questions for you?

How many times has he run for office??

How many times has he been elected???

It seems the majority of the voters think
he is doing a good job and re-elect him.

It looks like you all need to be doing more
campaigning against him or find some one else
to run against him,that you feel will do the better job.

If you have all this stuff about him that you
plan to turn in to the "authorities"....why would
you want to put it on here and give him/his office a heads up about it?
I really don't understand your logic.

Okay...so let's vote someone else in office that will do the exact same thing. What politician isn't going to give jobs to family and friends first? And...maybe I'm living in a bubble but what politician nowadays doesn't have wasteful spending???? hahaha...
This forum is just funny. Why don't you call old Obama up and tell him he shouldn't use his jet for family affairs since it cost probably well over $20,000 or more every time he uses it. I think we can all decipher where the money goes...and I don't think it's on a county or city level (not to say there is never wasteful spending on a county or city level).
Word of advice - get out of your box and see the big picture. Or...maybe you're just upset because you didn't get a job or a family member didn't get a job or whatever. That's fine. Understandable. BUT...don't judge good people who truly work hard and deserved their job just because they are related to Judge Logsdon. There are actually relatives that worked hard and continue to work hard for people who are never grateful. It wouldn't matter who was in office...as Judge Executive - those things will never change and for "City Boy" - I think the only one with their nose stuck in everyone else's business is you!

Roger Tomes - not forced to retire because of nepotism so I'm not sure where you got your information. Also, maybe you should learn how to spell - even your forum title is spelled incorrectly.

Am I the only one who recalls the Judge and Fiscal Court that the tax would be repealed after 2 years?
