Republican officeholders admit they aren't at work


New Albany, April 4, 2019 - Floyd County Democratic Party Chair Adam Dickey made the following statement regarding new revelations involving the work status of County Auditor Scott Clark:

“For the second time in just over a month, we learn that a Republican County officeholder isn’t showing up for work, yet continues to receive a full time salary of over $50,000 annually at county taxpayer expense. Scott Clark’s public revelation at the April 2nd Commissioners’ meeting that he works less than 25 hours per week is just another example of poor management and lack of accountability.

“Coupled with the status of County Assessor James Sinks, who continues to hold a full-time teaching position in Jefferson County, KY, this disclosure illustrates a disturbing trend. It’s unacceptable for any public official to show such disrespect and contempt for the public they swore under oath to serve.”
