Well . . . today I enjoyed some attention from the Paducah Sun. 😏 I’m still processing their words and thoughts. The paper feels I should have disclosed the fact I assisted Scott Darnell with his last days at PED. The County Attorney said I was not required to disclose. Frankly, I thought everyone knew about my limited role. However I want to make the letters I wrote on behalf of Scott Darnell available to the public in an easy access manner. They are embedded below. The matter with which I helped Scott Darnell was limited in scope and resolved before I took office. I did not charge for the time I spent on the project.
I have also embedded the video of my comments about economic development from the January 14, 2019 meeting.
