As we all know during election time some people find it enjoyable to slander and desecrate the candidates running for office. This post is to contradict those things said about Mayoral Candidate Russ Meyer. I have been a tenant of Mr. Meyer for nearly three years. I am a single parent and as anyone that is, knows that sometimes things get out of your control. Instead of Mr. Meyer holding that against me he was there to work things out with me. He always told me if I needed anything just call him, and I knew he really meant what he said. Russ Meyer has more integrity and compassion than anyone I know. A example of that integrity and compassion is me owning my own home. Mr Meyer and I had talked about me purchasing the home I live in, but I knew I couldnÂ’t get the loan I needed to make that possible. So he is working with me to find away to be able to come a first time homeowner. That shows how much he cares about the people that live in his community, if he is willing to go that length helping one person, know he will go that extra mile helping Jessamine County.

I agree with the last post. Russ Meyer will be a great mayor! We need a younger mayor who has future visions for Nicholasville. Times are changing and we need someone who can roll with the punches. I have had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Meyer and was very impressed with his ideas. What I have seen and heard about Mr. Meyer has been nothing but positive.
Nicholasville needs a change and I believe he is the one to get the job done.

i have a friend that is a nicholasville firefighter. i just found out they are having problems with the city fathers including russ meyer concerning the annual toy drive program. they have gotten the runaround from the city administration for several weeks. they have turned down donations and canceled found raisers because they cannot get the cities approval to continue this program. i am just trying to find a way to let the voters of nicholasville know, the current nicholasville politicians have hampered a program desined by the firefighters to provide christmas toys for children in jessamine co. i feel these current politicians do not deserve your vote. these children are the future of our wonderful city and to take toys from them is unexceptable. please consider new canidates such as FORMER MAYOR SAM CORMAN, AND COMMISSIONER CANIDATES ANDY WILLIAMS, AND DANNY SHEARER. unlike russ meyer these guys havent slandered anyone or denied toys to any children. thanks for reading.

I am definitely voting for Sam Corman. I have seen the desperate attempt by Russ Meyer to slander Mr. Corman and when someone has a negative campaign then they have nothing to offer the city.

Russ Meyer only wants the title, he doesnt want to do the job as Mayor, he wants to hire a City Administrator to do the Mayor's job. Why hire a City Administrator to run the city when that is why we have a Mayor.

Russ Meyer is not for us, he is only for himself. He advertises about investing in our children, but not helping firefighters with the toy drive proves he doesnt care about the future of our children.

can any one say that the city is in any better shape now than it was 4 years ago? I can't. Sam's the man in 2006.

Both candidates have made promises to current and former elected officials that they will have a job with that particular candidate's administration, and thus some particularly suprising endorsements. Nicholasville is not just a little town anymore. We do need someone who can actually initiate and follow through with reasonable and appropriate planning for Nicholasville. If you really sit back and try to pull yourself out of all the bull***t involved in these campaigns, it doesn't seem promising at all to vote for anyone, in any party, and for any office. Ugh.

I am very glad to see that a lot of people feel the same way I do about the mayoral election. I agree that the negativity of Russ Meyer, and the backing of Two Former Mayors which no one wanted after one term will in itself be his demise. Yes, Sam Corman is definetly the man 2006.

I am leaning toward Sam Corman. I was totally surprised that he made it in the primary (as I had not even factored him in - I guess I was so anti-Martin I didn't pay attention). I do know that during his term that he did this city no harm and did a good job of making employees in every department feel at least appreciated.

I know both candidate's for the mayoral election and from that knowledge of both I will definitely vote for SAM CORMAN! Russ Meyer is not a leader he is a follower. Sam Corman was a very good mayor when he was in office and he will be again. The negative ad of Russ Meyer's, the fact that he recently voted YES to raise our taxes, the fact that he voted NO on at least 3 different occasions for the police and fire to receive raises and voted YES to waive the payroll tax for RJ's employees are just a few of the reasons why we all should vote for SAM CORMAN.

THANK GOODNESS I LIVE IN LEXINGTON!! My family is from Nicholasville but I have been watching this race very closely. How depressing that Russ won! It is even more depressing that we have a man that is going to be running Nicholasville, that had to give up his golf course because he couldn't handle the accounting! He was going broke because he can't manage money, and that's who we will have in Nicholasville for 4 years! Not to mention that he wants a "manager" of the city who is the same person who was caught doing illegal things and as a part of his plea bargin, stepped down from jailer. WOW! It's amazing and I ma baffled. Well folks, get your wallets ready because you'll be paying for Russ's mistakes for thenext 4 years and have over 3000 people to blame!! Hey....Lexington just voted in a new mayor in case anyone wants to move!!

i am currently a police officer for the city of nicholasville and i just wanted 2 ask all these people who voted for russell meyer what in the hell they are thinking!!! he has tried to campaign in ways that are completely innapropriate putting signs in peoples yards on the corners of streets and thats what makes them feel obligated to vote for his sorry ass!!! theres only one man who has ever done any damn good for this community, built one fine swimming facility for the CHILDREN !!!! and on top of that is the name of the town and i will ponder for the rest of my days why the best man in this town isnt in office at this time and that would have to be SAM CORMAN !!!!!!!!!!

I just want to say I'm sorry for the voters of Nicholasville. I can not for the life of me understand how some people are so blind sided by some one like Russ Meyer. Sam Corman is a good,decent human being and was good for Nicholasville for a long time.It will not be very long before most of the people who voted for Russ wish they could take back their vote. I would never vote for someone who used the negative ads that Russ used and I sure as heck don't want someone who will stand and look you in the eye and lie through his teeth representing me. I voted for SAM CORMAN and I am proud of it.
