you are exactly correct. Billy Ray was one of the best ever. I knew him personally, great person. Since the office has almost been nonexistant.
I would like to encourage everyone who knew Phil Craft or had any dealings with him to either call or email James Comer and relay your feelings to him about the forced retirement. His office answered when I called, and I was given a voice box of Holly so I left a message that Mr. Craft was a very good state employee. I reccomended that they rehire him or replace him with someone of equal competance. Comers phone # is 502-573-0450. His email is email@example.com
I also have spoken to Shaun Burgess @ Kelleys and they are going to get involved somewhat in helping to make sure the office is not abolished. I also spoke with Dadant in Frankfort and they are likewise involved. Politicians only listen to numbers of voices. So if you want to help get involved.
