Check into the county records a few elections back and you may be surprised what you find. Putting your neck out there will cause it to be cut off. Surely it does not surprise you that crooked dealings have went on in politics. Honest Babe, Do you think an honest person has a chance and if you do then get out and talk to people all around you and ask their opinion. depending on who you are and if people actually like you will depend on if they answer you truthfully. Lets go back to the car crusher. Did you even know the county had one??? People around our area did know.
So what will I find if I check into county records a few elections back? What do I need to be looking for?

Lets go back to your statement which prompted my original question. In post #42 you stated, "People should start voting good people in that are qualified not bought off."

However, isn't voting pretty much a matter of personal opinion? Maybe what you would consider "good people" other voters would consider as not being the best choice?

Voting is a personal opinion and peoples opinions are what they base their votes on. NOT truth or facts. People voted in Peyman as sheriff to get rid of Fee. But Did we really know anything about his back ground and now look at the mess. So we did not get someone qualified. How many jobs aroudn this county go to family members, not quailifed people who do the job. Now the Fiscal Court has not beeb paying the retirement benefits from the workers. The monies have been taken out of their checks but not deposited into their accounts. That was not a sheiff department problem, that was a court problem and the Judge and Treasurer. We are not putting people in positions that benefit our county anymore and we are paying more and more for it. I don't know people I trust anymore to vote for any of them. No Good person wants to run and go against all the other crooks for fear of them ruining them. Ask around.

What about Funds written off for the last sheriff who left. Ask to see what the year end figures when Fee left. Ask to see the asctual profit and loss statements from the Jail, Fiscal court and County. Did you read the paper today. That was a crock about the jail.. Its failing to. The county workers deserve their retirement. They pay it in. They have already lost sick time due to this whole mess. Lets just go back you go see for yourself. The car crusher was given to the Johnsons to use. IT was bought for a hefty price and then sold as junk. How many other tax payers got to use it or benefited from it. None that I know of and I have lived here my whole life.

I have not had a chance to read the paper yet "Liar Liar". You are probably right when you say a lot of good people don't want to run out of fear of what their name and their family will be put through. That is the point I was trying to make to begin with though...the people of Jackson County shouldn't be blamed for not voting for good honest people if those people's names are not on the ballot to vote for. However, I can think of some office holders in the county that I trust to be about as honest as they come.

I see lots of complaints about the county officials on here lately. For some odd reason complaints seem to have increased dramatically ever since news of Sheriff Peyman's audit came out. Anyhow, based on what you say here, anyone with information about such things as the car crusher, or those such as the county employees need to raise more 'ell than a scalded cat with Jack Conway's office, and anyone else in Frankfort you can find to complain to. Most likely, they will eventually get tired of hearing about it and do something.

The county employees pay in retirement. It is taken our of each paycheck. The monies collected from the employees chaeck has not been paid in on theri retirement since April 2012. They are upset and I do not blame them. The retirement firm told an employee that they have tried to contact the Judge and the Treasurer and had no reponse. That is unfair in any standards. They need to address the situation now. Also on the hoenst people you know if office. Think about those people, Do they have family members working for them ddrawing big checks. If so there is not honesty there. They should not be allowed to hire family members. I know of one person who may be honest. That is Doris Ward. But she also has a family member there. But she is the only one I know of. She is new to the position and only time will tell how that ends. Sand Gap has no magistrate. Where is his salary going. Look on the webiste for ky.gov and check out the financial statements from 2011. See what you can make of it... Nothing balanced then. look at the figures closely. do you know anythign of accounting? If so you can figure it out. I am also looking for the 118,000 that was written off for Sheriff Fee when he was in office.

I was told the state has been contacted and nothing is happening. I feel bad for the workers. It would be nice to make a public statement.

So, have you personally contacted Conway's office with all the information you have concerning your allegations of misuse of a car crusher by the county? How about concerning the problems you claim are going on with the retirement? After all, one cannot always rely on what one has been told or take it for granted that others are being persistent in reporting such things. No, I say if you want to make sure something is taken care of right, then take care of it yourself.

You wrote..."Also on the hoenst people you know if office. Think about those people, Do they have family members working for them ddrawing big checks. If so there is not honesty there. They should not be allowed to hire family members."

What are the local laws concerning nepotism in county offices? It may not be the best policy, but if they are not breaking any laws how can you say there is not honesty there? Maybe the family member was the best qualified applicant for the job? Also, you bring up Doris Ward...her relative was working there before Doris was elected. Which audit showed where $118,000 was written off for Sheriff Fee?

I can tell you that I called Kentucky Retirement Systems. Everything is true on the retirement front. I also called Conways Office and reported this as well. I have been trying to get others to make the same calls so we can get some traction on this impossible situation.

Well "haha" I am not sure if you are joking or serious; however, I would first have to actually be on here gossiping all the time before I would be able to stop doing so.

Discussing job performance and ethics of public officials isn't gossip. It might be slander if during the discussing one makes false accusations or tells lies about an official, which I have not done, but it isn't gossip.

I must say, out of all the posters on Topix, some of which do gossip without remorse, I do wonder why you seem so concerned about my posts? Have I ever said anything 'gossipy' or untrue about you? Do my posts make you feel worried or threatened in some way?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
