Cannot belive the citizens of Richmond didn't vote out ALL current commissioners. Have you all not heard about the 3.2 MILLION deficit? They need to be held accountable for their actions!
At least you voted the current mayor out.

Will not be voting for anyone who has been a commissioner in the past. My votes will be for Baird, Johns, Morgan, and Thomas.

"Re-Elect CONNIE Lawson- Mayor City of Richmond, KY Thanks to everyone for their support! We won't have any problem this fall- the campaigning starts now!
about an hour ago"

I agree with you 100%, Jack. Now if we can get the rest of the city to see it.
One more word

Do people in this town know anything about who they are voting for. Why would anybody vote for someone who is already in office. Any city that let's the budget get out of control the way this one has should not be in office and that goes from the Mayor all across the board. It seems like it is as always "The good ole boy syndrome". What a way to run a city.
baffled by the results

I guess the people of Richmond think it is the Mayor's fault, but not the Commissioners?
If the November election votes similarly, which it usually does, Kay Jones will take back the spot lost to Rita Smart last election and Donna Baird will be the only newcomer on the Commission taking the spot of Bill Strong.(Feel free to swap the spots actually taken...it doesn't really matter)
I was always under the impression that Kay Jones was ousted because she voted yes on the Sunday Sales flip/flop (not that it would have mattered...it only takes 3 to pass).
I will never understand how voters come to their conclusions on whom to vote.
I'm not complaining about the results or anything else, I just find them very interesting. What message, exactly, is being sent by this vote? It almost makes no sense.

If the people who voted for the ones that didt make the cut and they vote for baird,morgan thomas and johns you could vote out the current crew. Come on richmond wake up you taxes may depend on it. Its your future protect it.

I've got three words for the ones that voted for Strong, Jones, Brewer, and Blythe.

ARE YOU CRAZY!!!!

If we don't get rid of these morons the city will be taken over by the state (that's what happens when a town goes bankrupt) and they will raise prices for services and local property taxes, charge more for a business license, and parking tickets. You name it and it will go up, until they balance the city's budget.
Seriously

I don't live in the city, but I am shocked the voters of Richmond have set up a ballot of the same old mess. The only good is that Donna Baird is second on the list. If you vote them back in the city deserves everything that it gets. It's obivious that they want rid of Connie, so why would you put Brewer and Strong back in. Look at the paper, again Strong getting funds from another venue.....When will this stop!!!!
