<quoted text> 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 is no businessman, not in the normal sense of the word. He's another f'ing lawyer. He's as corrupt as the other ones - he's just not in the "in-crowd" so he's trying to force his way through the door. Good luck with that, Chris. Keep running with Hilman Dotson and KACO and you're gonna be a shining example of the crusader for the people that you like to pretend to be.

Just another case of the fat cats trying to dictate public elections here in Pike County.

Shame on those involved with EKCC. Should be referred to as East Kentucky Corrupt Council in the future.

Frankie, Bill, and Ray your wealth doesn't give you the right to control this county and try to affect elections. Although in Frankies case it probably gives him the right to buy editors silence. Just a few Ben Franklins from that billion given to you will never be missed.

Our unmanipulated votes should be the only thing that decides who is elected in this county.

Now as for the three crookateers all I can say is the next time you sit on the toilet, take a big whiff, yours is just like the rest of ours. Only difference is we are use to bargin brand paper and you three use the deluxe stuff.

<quoted text> 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.

Why would our city or county government want to do any business with this company? The state attorney general says as a public company (which they are since they have the city and MWD water contracts) they are required by law to reveal their financial records. They are refusing to do so.

Aren't there any other companies that would love to get those contracts and would abide by the state attorney general's ruling?
Why does our city or county have to give the contracts to UMG?

Did the City of Pikeville, Mayor Justice or any of the Commissioners ever request UMG to produce records as outlined by the Attorney Generals Office? Is the Pike County Fiscal Court, Judge Rutherford being the only no vote, the only ones requesting that UMG follow the law and turn over the records? Where does their Lawyer stand on this issue that involves a Company making tens of millions of dollars off the backs of Pike Countians?

Deafening silence from the City.

Not one request, yet the lemings only replaced one commissioner last election.

Blame the ignorant Pikeville voters for allowing such bizarre actions by their city government.

Known crooks who are not replaced by elections only become more entrenched and brazen.

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.
Sorry you r wrong.
