Fire department criminal attorney Thomas Clay and trustees attorney Maurice Byrne at odds
Audit report gives each side reason to claim win

 Can a report from a state auditor serve the purpose of making both sides happy?

We guess so.

Let’s take, for example, the recent release of Adam Edelen’s audit of the Southeast Bullitt Fire Board.

Going into the request for the examination, the concern was mismanagement of tax dollars.

Beyond that, local residents were looking for some tidbit of illegal activity. Theft of tax dollars would be an added bonus. Recommendation for jail time for criminal misdeeds would be icing on the cake.
