He's the best mayor we've had since Mike Sullivan. He's willing to work to help the city unlike the last mayor. If you want to talk about waste, see how much the fire department spends every year. No, it's not that we don't appreciate the fire department, It's just waste is waste no matter who wastes it...

So Schooley looks into billing errors? Is this some kind of joke or prank? this is hilarious. Does everyone in Lawrence County have stupid on their forehead.

the good dr did not give up his practice. medicare fraud does that. good dr? no.
I question some people the rotary hold in high esteem.
I'd vote for slone if I lived in town. it is much cleaner now than it has been for quite awhile.
a jailer with no jail and 10 deputies gets over 50,000 and no one cares. our judge sells equipment we need but that's ok. our co att. lets dead beats get by with not paying child support, yes, they were turned in with new addresses. ms shaeffer stabs her husband, abuses her child, no charges. no arrest records. still has a job with the city.
I think we have more issues than the mayors pay.
democrat or repubilican? only idiots vote straight ticket.
enough said this round.

Quoting Just Asking:
Why did Dr. Balaklaw give up his practice?

I don't know....maybe because he bilked Medicaid out of thousands of dollars by fraudulent billing for his own personal/financ ial gain and got caught.

Quoting Countygal:
And the people complaining about the raise in salary for the mayors office need to understand that the salary is going up because the work hours are doubling. The current mayor position pays for 20 hours a week..... there is no doubt that Mayor Slone puts in double those hours in a week.

The new mayor position will require the mayor to work 40 hours/week so the pay SHOULD be much higher than it is now....


It's never been a full time job and with the size of Louisa it doesn't need to be. He raised the salary for his own potential benefit, PLAIN AND SIMPLE. Come on Louisa, someone with some good credentials needs to run for this office.

Apparently “Terry” is unaware that the Mayors race is non-partisan. They don’t run as Dems or Repubs..... and it’s kind of sad that “Terry” only votes for his party rather than the person...Quoting Terry:
I am really hoping that a Republican will run,I only vote for my party.

Of course Harold Slone is running again. He raised his potential salary to 50,000.00 per year. I doubt he will be re-elected. I am sure there will be other people challenging him now. I would say he beat himself with that action.
