JB what is the deal with the Welch contribution?

Admin reply: appears to be a $2,000.00 bribe for those city contracts. Of course, welch has no problems with taking bribes.

If the organizers of the protest at City Hall want to organize once more at the next Council meeting, please let everyone know. We can get a bigger crowd next time and maybe a Louisville TV station to attend. Then, out of towners can see what the real Madison has become.

This City has got to get off of the bullying attitude toward Mr. Hutchinson. The whole thing has gotten to be personal against the man. And now, maybe the Mayor is bullying the newspaper!?

We have among us, certain people who believe they are above anyone else and what they say, goes. Well babies, too bad, the Forum has a big spotlight on the control freaks and they don't like it one bit.

ETHICS and HONESTY in Madison and Jefferson County have made a turn for the worse and the corrupt people need all the negative advertising to be brought on them. City Hall needs a major cleaning of most of the elected Officials we currently have in office. They gripe about J.B. and the Forum and all the nay-sayers who oppose their corrupt practices. Well guess what............. these Politicians brought it all on them........ no one else!

P.S. Don't back off Mindy Mcgee!!!

Let me get this straight. City Council delayed voting on a new Hutchinson ILA Friday because there wasn't a posting of the regular meeting notice at City Hall?

Was told by someone in the know...there was no posting of a regular meeting there Thursday but there was one Friday morning..and it was posted partly behind something else to make it appear as if it were overlooked. Is that true?

Do those people at City Hall not only have no ethics but no shame either?

It is not the mayoral seat Welch will hate to give up - it is the seat in the free car.

How did our politicians sink so low? We've got city council Rick Berry the great flip flopper and king of back door deals running for city clerk. I can't see putting someone that hides everything and doesn't want the public to know the truth having to honor a duty to provide the public the records we're entitled to. Can you imagine how bad things would be if we had Welch and Berry both going along with Crooks hide and seek games ?

Also does anybody know what happened at city hall between the newspaper and Welch? Whatever it was supposedly happened around the protestors at city hall. But I don't know. I keep hearing he got all over the writers. Maybe he doesn't want the paper writing a story about citizens taking to sidewalks with signs about no ethics at city hall.

This whole thing is about a small group of bullies wanting to keep the right to keep bullying Hutchinson. The road can still go forward- the project won't stop. But the Welch administration won't be able to push this guy around anymore. It's been 4 years of lying to the guy, trying to steal his property for less than its worth and I'll bet anything this is about Welch's gang being mad cause someone stood up.

McGee tried to make the point that her issue was more than just not getting facts ahead of time, more than about back dating a legal document, more than about elected officials lying to other elected officials. She kept saying the reason the push was on was so there'd be legal advantages and it wasn't just about the road getting done. She was mad and had every right to be.

I gotta agree with the lady. Common sense says after 4 years of nothing but bullying they aren't in a rush to do the road- they're in a rush to keep some of their power so they can keep bullying.

Today while everyone's attention was on councils discussing an ILA; Dumbo and Popcorn boy moved ahead with their alley project. And you thought this dodo idea was dead. Let's see, the alley benefits the Off Broadway which is owned by Republican candidate for city council Libby Mann. Couldn't be Dumbo is looking for her support, could it? How much will we taxpayers wind up paying for Dumbo's nomination?

County Councils turn. Judy Smith, Ray Denning, Chris Shelton and Joe Craig present. (Craig's is TIF board member and council president) side note- Kudos to city councilman Henderson for attending.

So far council is asking important questions. But I'm not holding my breath that Jenner or Craig will confess that if the agreement is not "renewed" that the project can still go forward. The truth is the only thing that can't go forward is the city can't continue to drag Hutchinson through court. The condemnation action ends and the city will be required to work in a more friendly, decent manner with a citizen. I don't see that as a tragedy.

Councilwoman Smith had some direct questions and statements and there's still lots of dancing around. Judy asked if citizens could comment and Craig was not in favor of public input.

Shelton tried hard to get answers. Jenner answered he can't say. Apparently the council won't be provided the courtesy of the entire truth anymore than city council or commissioners. Craig is adding comments on behalf of the TIF board- he must have forgotten he is representing citizens- or maybe I missed Craig volunteering to take the ethically high road and excuse himself from the discussion. Probably not....Craig continued fighting for TIF board and I've lost interest in following the long list of half truths and out and out lies.

Good job to Ray Denning- Craig rambled on about money and Ray says there's more than money involved- Craig didn't know what else- Ray said "right and wrong." Ray gets it.

Good job to Chris Shelton- he's not happy about the same thing as Ms McGee. Shelton didn't get his info until 2 this afternoon. Seems the city and TIF team still aren't interested in helping officials make informed decisions.

As it turned out Warren Auxier had to answer the questions Jenner wouldn't. That pizzed Craig off. Now we have a discussion about all the horrible things that might go wrong if the agreement isn't signed. Apparently we aren't going to imagine the good things that could go right.

Craig keeps pushing. A citizen has suggested Craig step aside for the vote. Craig doesn't want to. I'm not exactly shocked. Craig is arguing if there's no legal standard it's okay. Craig not grasping the ethical concern. Once again- I'm not surprised.

County council is recessed til 5pm on Monday. It would have been a 2-2 vote.
