  • Support emergency services

     Bullitt County’s Emergency Services Department is having difficulty retaining employees even though the county is experiencing the same unemployment problems facing the rest of the country.

    Mr. Phillips, the EMS director, approaches fiscal court at almost every meeting stating the need to replace a dispatcher, EMT or paramedic. The EMS has been dealing with this problem for some time. The reason that most leave is the low pay scale. They can earn 20% to 30% more working for a neighboring county or a private employer.

     In with the new

    Your cartoonist should be told that 470 is more than 12.

    Unfortunately going to cancel meeting is not done by most citizens. They are unaware of what the city is doing. I suggest they make a habit of attending to see what’s going on.

    Lately I have been glad to see more people becoming involved to make our city become one of the best.

    Out with the old in with the new.

  • Vote for Keith

     On Tuesday, Nov. 6, the citizens of Bullitt County will elect their Circuit Clerk.

    I am pleased to has served the community for decades. Her father, Paul Keith, has been a barber at Keith’s Barber Shop in Shepherdsville for 54 years and her mother, Rhonda Keith, was Bullitt County Property Valuation Administrator for 14 years. Paulita brings this history, along with a good business background into public service.

  • Vote for Portman

     Faith Scott Portman is a clear choice to be re-elected to the Shepherdsville City Council. She has been our voice, standing up for issues that effect our daily lives.

    She stands for our core values. She voted against the high sewer rate increase, when other council members pushed it through.

    We got to have Faith.

  • Re-elect Linda Belcher

     I totally agree with others that Linda Belcher is the best choice for state representative for Bullitt County.

  • Vote for Belcher

     Linda Belcher is a strong voice in the Kentucky legislature for Bullitt County. We all know the efforts she has put in to gain funds for our roads. And all of the committees she serves on in the House of Representatives have an impact on our county. Linda is vice-chair of the Education Committee, serves on Economic Development and Task Force, Transportation, and the Veterans, Military Affairs, and Public Safety Committees.

  • Vote for Keith

     I have worked with Paulita Keith since 1997. While I am extremely happy that she is running for Bullitt Circuit Clerk, I will miss working with her in the future.

  • Step up Bullitt County

     This January I stepped up to run for the open Kentucky Senate created by legislative redistricting. Within 45 days the redistricting plan was declared unconstitutional by the Kentucky Supreme Court. My candidacy and Bullitt County’s chance for a state senator effectively ended with that ruling.

  • Vote for Linda Belcher

     I urge your continued support for Linda Belcher to remain as your representatives for District 49 in Bullitt County. Although I live in Nelson county, I know Linda by working with her on the Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education board of directors.

  • Right in our backyard

     In regards to the Bullitt County Stone rezoning hearing on July 12, 2012, I would like to say that I was shocked and disgusted at the behavior of Attorney David Pike (representing Bullitt County Stone).

    Never before I have I seen someone show such arrogance and disrespect before a government body as well as to the citizens of Bullitt county as this man did. It was very obvious he had no desire to answer any questions from the zoning board or the citizens present nor present any evidence that this rezoning should take place.
