Commissioner Hearn just keeps digging his self-made pit even deeper

Here we go again with the sneaky crusade of Commissioner Lee Hearn. First, in 2010, we had a situation where a full quorum of the Fayette County Board of Commissioners was spotted having an improper meeting in a local restaurant in Fayetteville to discuss how they were going to change the county’s Board of Elections to their advantage.

3 county emperors dressed in deception

We have three emperors in Fayette County who wear no clothes. They are dressed only in an aura of dishonesty and deception they have woven around themselves

I sat with a large crowd of people at the April 14 County Board of Commissioners meeting.
