All Knowing? Kiss my big white butt. Are you speaking from experience? Or are you just running your jaw? I saw you on another forum and you think you are the sh?t dont you? If you live in Burlington which I doubt you do then how in the hell would you know what goes on in Paintsville? Quit running your piehole and worry about your own city because Im sure you have no political experience just from what you have said and I gurantee you have slept with Amber Richmond LOL
Once again Kiss my BIG WHITE BUTT

I drove to Prestonsburg a few weeks ago to do something and I was curious.. So I stopped at Archer Park to look around. What I saw when I drove thru that town made me ashamed, ashamed of Paintsville. I love this city. It's a wonderful place to raise a family, but there is NO progress!! It has changed sooo very little in the past 20 years. Our park has updated a feew pieces of the equipment, but is that enough to call it progress! If you live in the city limits, you pay property taxes to both the city and the county ( which is insane.. should be one or the other.). Where is all the money going to? The most important departments IMO are the police and fire, as a matter of safety. If the cuts are directed at those departments then goin to the golf course, umm can anyone say "stupidity" ? I like the safe feeling I have here. Knowing that if there was a fire or an accident that a well trained and fast response would arrive. Those few minutes extra that it would take for the volunteers from the county to arrive could mean the difference between my family living and dying.

I guess it was fiscally resposible to carry out a personal vendetta against a someone who did there job as good as anybody else has, only to the have the city have to cough up a big court settlement. Yeah, that's good politickin'. Probably about as good as the show Bonnie put on at the country club on New Years eve a year or two ago....

Two people that will tell you Bob Porter is a crook Loyal Ward and Nancy Price
Call and ask them their opinion. After what happened to the two of them I bet they don't like what the mayor gets away with.
While you are calling call the fire department and ambulance service. Bet they don't like him either. Still waiting on the ambulance to be repaired that Crystal was killed next to!

recently bob went to a preacher for help with paintsville's "drug problem". of course the preacher said he would help, but when the preacher touched base on a few things that hit bob close to home he's having second thought.

Why don't you mind your own damn business? What about you doing all that stuff with Kelly Conley and him being married to Paula????? Can you answer that one for me? Who bought your trailblazer for you? As for Michelle being with Moocher why do you give a damn, is he not giving you a piece, is someone jealous? You didn't read the autopsy report did you? His heart busted and even if he did overdose that is my family and I don't appreciate you saying shit like that. He is passed away and isn't able to defend himself so leave him the hell alone! What about your big meth head ex hubby? Even if Michelle was doing whatever with her ex hubby that was like 10 years ago, and that is when her mother and father supposedly kept her kids! Get over it bitch. As far as I know she doens't even get foodstamps, sure you weren't the one spending the foodstamps? Oh yeah, and even if she did do pills-you sell them, you the one supplying them to her? Michelle and I both know who you are and you better be watching your back because you are going to get what is coming to you!

Michelle and her family are not bad people. They may lean a little toward the wild side from time to time. But, who among us hasn't? Why be so judgemental? "Separate the sinners from the saints and you're lucky if you end up with Abraham Lincoln."- Hud Bannin(Paul Newman)
Stay on topic

Anderson, SC

Lets try to stay on the topic of the Mayor. Not his personal life and the lives of his children. I do not agree with the job that Bob has done, but I have to admit some of the comments are uncalled for. Don't attack someones family. It is rude, childish and embarrassing.

Anyways, the golf course issue has me fuming. I do not understand why they have been budgeted so much money while other departments are taking cuts. The public safety departments in this city need to taken care of before the golf course. It is a bad move on the Mayors part. I also heard that the employees would not be getting a cost of living raise this year. That is a shame. The price of everything is going up and there is no reason the employees shouldn't get their raises. I have a suggestion. Lets cut the budget for the struggling golf course and give the employees what they deserve. They are already underpaid and not giving them an annual raise is like a slap in the face.

I also heard that the employees have always been given a three percent raise and since Porter has been in office they lowered it to two percent. I understand that the city may have financial problems, but pumping money into a failing golf course and not giving employees raises?? Come on.

I guess that the old saying holds true... give someone enough rope and they will hang their self. Mayor Porter is a prime example.

This is not meant to be an attack on the Mayors wife, but everybody knows she "visits" the golf course regularly. That is why the golf course gets the funds it does...

While we cutting budgets, maybe we could cut the pay of some of those over paid city managers and supervisors, just not going to happen.

If you aren't a dopey and she was a dopey so bad then why the hell didn't you try to stop her and what does this have anything to do with her ex hubby. They had been divorced for a long time when he passed and like I said he is not here to defend himself so leave him out of this! Grow up and talk shit to people's face and not behind their back! GROW UP!

if someone cant control his wife's drinking and his daughters drug abuse what makes you think that he can control a city??? if he wont try and help his own wife and daughter with their problems why would he help anyone else?? all he is doing is catering to their drinking (obviously by the new "wet" vote) and not putting them in some kind of rehab for their problems.... the city is in worse shape now that it ever has been before....but the golf course is in pretty good shape...imagine that. unless it benefits bob and bob only, it doesnt get done. and keeping bonnie drunk and happy...keeps her from b!tching at him so he's gonna make her happy too. when ur in the public eye you have NO personal life. everything becomes public.

Did Doug leave a deficit? I thought the deficit didn't come til after Mayor Porter had been in office a while.(???)

It would be easy to check the records, all the way back untill Cooper left. I think DOUG got the problem from Cooper and was just to big to take care and then Mayor Porter got what was left of the mess. Not really sure, but would be nice to see the records.
