Mayor Curtis Hardwick makes statement on lawsuit
'I believe the Board of Elections was correct to appeal, because there were mistakes made, but not enough to impact the outcome of the election.' - CURTIS HARDWICK
There's a lot of confusion going around about this lawsuit. It's not the City of Columbia's lawsuit. It's a suit against the Adair County Board of Elections concerning the mayoral election.
The city has not been accused of doing anything wrong, and I have not been accused of doing anything wrong.
I believe the Board of Elections was correct to appeal, because there were mistakes made, but not enough to impact the outcome of the election.
I keep reading that the county is going to pay for a city lawsuit. What a lot of people don't understand is that the city is 24 percent of the county population, and we pay 28 percent of the county taxes (27.8 percent to be exact).
So when people are talking about paying for the city, anything that's paid thought the county, the city has paid 28 percent of it.
If the county lays $100,000 worth of blacktop, the city's part is $28,000.
I'm saying this because people forget the city pays County Taxes.
- Curtis Hardwick, the writer is Mayor of the City of Columbia, KY. Comments submitted 6 January 2016.
