Another Frankfort City Government Scandal. We have those with years of experience and none more than Bill May constantly talking about his experience. He was nowhere with the Kathy Carter/Tony Massey scandal. This minor scandal ended really big with Massey, our City Manager, resigning his very high paid position and Kathy Carter losing her next election.
Now we have an apparent admitted theft with a return of the goods taken, forfeiture of more than $5,000 in accrued leave, and her resignation. And this was only looking back one year. I guess certain city leaders decided it wasn't worth going back more than one year. As the associated photo shows those with many many years of experience wanted to sweep this "incident" under the rug.
Bill May has been our Mayor three times, City Commissioner twice or more. He has more City Government experience than everyone on the panel...COMBINED. (Wilhoites Police experience does not count as government experience. Its law enforcement experience)
Instead of sitting there completely quiet while Commissioners Wilder, Turner, and Hedden speak out against this and City Manager Wilhoite saying he will turn it over to the Commonwealth Attorney, Bill May is absolutely quiet. Not a peep, sqeak, murmur, moan, nothing. See photo
May, with all his expressed experience, should be the LEADER, not hiding his face behind his hand, being completely and utterly quiet. See Photo
May is campaigning under the same rug he has swept the Burris fiasco. He is afraid to campaign. He wants to win as the quietest candidate in the history of America. May figures if he doesn't do anything public, doesn't show up anywhere, basically disappears, he will win on name recognition only. I know our Frankfort voters cannot be fooled. We are an informed voter base.
May added $5 million to our Public Safety Building, May stood by while Holmes Street flooded for 18 years, he has hid while our sewer infrastructure has crumbled, he has raised taxes many many times (except around election time). May has stood by while our Humane Society is in a shambles, offered no leadership while Frankfort City Managers failed again and again.
What I see are our young inexperienced Commissioners who are not scared to do the right thing, whether it costs them their next election, do the right thing again and again. They show leadership. It's time to put the 20 years experienced Bill May out in the political pasture and get new ideas, or any ideas for that matter, to move Frankfort Forward. Vote Kyle Thompson
