OK, so sometimes I get on a roll with The WVJS Breakfast Bunch. And forget to stop. Now, in all fairness I have gotten a whole bunch of positive vibes from all over town for “taking it to” Owensboro Mayor Ron Payne over the issue of raising taxes after promising not to, and saddling Owensboro with a gigantic amount of debt. But on the other hand, it does appear that the city is on a roll right now, and nobody can deny it all began with Smothers Park. A new hospital, Gateway Commons and a new Downtown Development District — along with a dozen other capital projects — are going to cost hundreds of millions more. And it’s an election year. I just feel that my audience is better served by hearing from the Mayor regularly as opposed to hearing me take shots at him. So last week I reached out to His Honor and offered an olive branch; we met and spent 15 minutes conversing at the Sportscenter prior to the Mavericks game 1/11 and this morning I booked The Mayor on the Breakfast Bunch for this Friday 1/15 at 7:30AM. I am in hopes that we can re-establish Mayoral Mondays as a once-a-month event; at any rate, welcome back to The Breakfast Bunch, Mayor Ron Payne! I am looking forward to some lively discussion.
