What an inspiring group of leaders we have looking out for our interests in Frankfort! Gov. Steve Beshear says outgoing transportation Secretary Joe Prather has “reduced political influences.”
Wow…That makes me feel soooooooo much better. I was worried that with these yet-to-be-fulfilled promises to make government more transparent that the best policies for cleaning house at the huge transportation cabinet were being neglected!
But we don’t really need any more than the politicians telling us that everything is great, do we?
Just one thing left out of this story: Prather’s tenure included putting up new traffic lights near his home in Hardin County the very day he began his job.
“The signals were installed despite an agency review that found them unnecessary.”
It appears we’re “traveling” in the right direction, doesn’t it?
