Remember folks, UMG is retained by the Mountain Water District through its Board of Directors to operate the water system. The people who work for MWD are contractors through UMG - not employees of Mountain Water District. The state auditor couldn't audit UMG if she wanted to as it is a private company as she only has statutory authority to audit public entities.

I'm not defending what UMG did but a private company has the right to spend its money how it wants.

There must be some reason that they would want to donate $15,000 to a political campaign. Please tell us what that reason is.

What is $600,000 per month? I wish someone would just say why the heck UMG would want to support a political campaign by donating $15,000.

The fact appears to be: State Senator Ray Jones has a wife who's family stands to profit from the sale of pipe to UMG. I doubt the $15,000.00 was from anyone's pocket other than the senator's extended family. The next grand release of information will reveal the source of the huge amount of money from Corbin that illegally attacked, and LIED about Chris Harris. The name used for the 'donation' just happens to be an accountant for none other than LEONARD LAWSON!. This revealing of the nastiness of State Senator Ray Jones, his law partner, Bill Hickman, mayor "Little Frankie" Justice, et al. seems to be implicating the great money tenders that we always suspected of screwing the working voter.

This screwup by Frank Justice, Jr. will reach into the bowels of sleaze and corruption which has lined the pockets of our 'politicians' for decades.

I believe you mean Ray Jones' sister's family as MGC is owned by her husband and Ray is a stock holder, as stated in the paper. Mr Lawson has been a long time supporter of Senator Jones. Why do you doubt UMG paid out the $15k? They have the money, hate Chris Harris, and have had alleged ties back to Mr Lawson. Follow the money! You can always figure it out! My question is are we going to keep electing these people to power positions?

Chris Harris is a respected and well liked businessman who apparently never had an enemy, nor an issue till Little frankie saw that Chris was 'looking into' questionable profits for politicians who sought to control contracts. Chris is the son of Pat Harris, who is, and always has been, an upstanding man. I rode Harleys with Chris's dad many years ago and I know his uncle David. These are good people. Little Frankie and rutherford recognized that a magistrate was honest. Realizing that they stood to be exposed, they illegally besmirched Chris Harris, in order to continue their questionable receiving of tax money. Had the smut campaign, paid for in part by Little Frankie, and Ray Jones succeeded, the wealth they were seeking through illicit contracts, would be in their pockets.

Senator Ray S. Jones, his daddy, Bill Hickman, and Mayor "little frankie" have been exposed for what they actually are. While we can never count on an elected official to NOT take easy money, we have seen this unfold before our very eyes.

Chris Harris will not puss out like little Boggs did. Everyone knows Jeff & Jerry side with the City and do and write exactly what they are told to do and write. Chris has no reason to be a friend to the City as he does not represent the City. However, he is asking a lot of questions regarding the Company that is managing the Cities utilities and the City for some reason does not like Chris asking questions. So, if some of, hopefully not all of, the allegations about Lil Frank, Ray Ray, Hickie, UMG, MGC, MWD, PVA, JDH, just to name a few are true, then Chris Haris will be doing the entire county a favor, including the City of Pikeville. Chris, you very well could be the person who can change the future of this County. Please, and I beg, do not be a chicken shit like Boggs! Good Luck and may God bless Pike County.

I often wonder if the people are so blind as to not see whats going on.

I have come to realize that the people do know what these crooks are doing and support them as like persons.

When politicians do something that appears good they want everyone and their uncle to know it. It is shouted from roof tops. So when this little sleazy group conspired to trash Mr. Harris not a word was spoken or published. Unlike a politician to hide their actions that they feel is so benificial to the public. Seems in this case it was more benificial to the politicians and their families.

Would any of you contribute your money to a magistraites race in hardin county? Then why would these out of county people be involved? Follow the money trail. Whats at the end is bigger that whats at the end of a rainbow.
