Quasar, maybe I missed something, but in the above quote Moore states "these alligations were found to be false". But were they found to be false? I guess my concern is, just because Moore was never prosecuted, it doesn't mean the alligations were false. Could it not be there was not enough hard evidence to prosecute? As I understand it, the local prosecutor will not prosecute unless they have enough evidence that they feel they have an airtight case.
I can answer one of your questions. After the mass mailing of the police report Moore and (I think) Steve Voelker filed a motion to have the file sealed. Somehow, I guess through a change of venue request, the case ended up in Washington Co. Mike had told me about filing to have the case sealed and later I asked how it went. He said the motion was denied because the file was empty. Told me the judge said they could not seal an empty file. This is the part that does not add up. According to Flack and Fifer the file was in Washington Co. but the judge said (according to Moore) it was empty. Perhaps we need an investgation to see who sent the file to Washington Co and to see exactly what was sent (or received) in Washington Co. I would think they would have records. Something doesn't jive.
I don't have anything to say about the issue of the case file one way or the other, but I just want to point out that you knew about this issue back when you were so vigorously campaigning for Mike Moore, but you didn't show one iota of concern about it possibly being true or any concern for the possible victim then.
It's only since you had your falling out with the mayor that you've suddenly decided that there might be something to this. At least be man enough to admit that it's personal vindictiveness that's driving you to pursue this and nothing at all to do with any kind of genuine concern about an alleged crime or victim.

An Animal Control Officer visited Jiya today. They had received an anonymous report that she was neglecting her cats and birds. The dogs weren't mentioned. Jiya invited the gentleman in and gave him a tour of her home and everything she has done to provide for her beloved pets. No neglect was found, of course, and the Animal Control Officer told her not to worry, everything is fine. Jiya isn't worried but she is upset that after so many years of living in the home and caring for her pets, someone would anonymously call in such a report.
Like many of us on this site, Jiya has said things that might better have been left unsaid, or said differently. I have fussed at her a time or two myself, just as I have many others. I have met her and found her to be a very nice, pleasant woman; and it seems my husband and I know a lot of the people she and her late husband knew. Someone asked me recently if we were friends...maybe not quite yet but I do hope we can/will be in the future.
She is currently leaving a home she loves, for various reasons. She has a large home, so it is a lot of work for her to prepare for the move. She has taken on the responsibility for Sister and her health issues. She is facing repairs to the home she will be moving into; repairs due to damage caused by someone who Jiya allowed to live in the house rent-free. She has had a lot on her plate.
Is Jiya an angel? Not hardly! Nor do I mean to paint her as such. She is a kind-hearted human being, not perfect of course. None of us are. But with her life in such turmoil right now, did she really deserve a visit from the Animal Control Officer, based on an anonymous tip, at this particular time? No...

Last week I introduced ten major projects that we will be working to complete over the next six years. Several of those projects play heavily on a healthier lifestyle and educating Jeffersonville on being well. All of the projects will be paid with cash, no bonds, loans or tax increases will be needed to complete. The biggest project we will undertake is the "23 Mile Bike & Hike" that runs throughout the city. We are also in the midst of building several new parks around neighborhoods that have long been ignored. These parks will emphasize physical activity and some will even have irrigated community gardens.
I couldn't be more proud of the members of the fitness council and all they bring to our city. It's ideas like these that will set Jeffersonville apart from surrounding communities. Quality of life issues and a fair cost of living are two of the biggest factors in retaining current families and businesses as well as attracting new families and companies. My goal is to alway's see Jeff comes in first in everything we compete for.

No true at all. But whatever you have to tell yourself to make yourself feel better about supporting this moron.
Actually I still am glad I voted the way I did. I thought TG, while well intentioned, was going to bankrupt the City. I did not share his vision for the City and I did not like his management style. I voted for a change.
I have not seen a story that covered what happened yesterday only that something happened. So before I get to calling the Mayor a dirty dog, I will wait and see what actually happened, instead if relying on rumor, supposition and innuendo- all of which I find childish and counterproductive.
One thing I do agree on, however, is the drama is getting tiresome.

Is there no sense of decency anymore with the media. To have this b****** coldly and cooly relive this and other crimes he admittedly committed in startling detail is beyond good taste and sensibility. It sickens me this creep is getting the attention this scumbag wants. Isn't it bad enough for the family of the victim Tara to live through this but now everyday they must relive this again and in full public view.
I could only watch a few minutes without turning it off its that disgusting.
Kelley and family I just pray that you can someday finally get some peace from this tragedy.....

To begin with the whole idea was a re-election ploy of Galligan's, knowing he was in trouble politically he needed some grandiose idea that he hoped the public would buy into and possibly resurrect his political future.. He had been mayor for 12 of the last 16 years and was aware of the mandates of the EPA for years. If the "canal" was such a great idea he could have had it fully implemented during his earlier time as mayor. But instead waited until the last year of his term when fines were imminent and knowing he had to answer to the uproar over the trebled sewer bills.
So like he always has, ( like a bull in a china shop) he bulled forward not concerned about the anti-canal sentiment of the majority of residents or the property owners involved and not knowing whether he would be re- elected or not. The engineering firms hired were more than happy to relieve us from our tax dollars for Galligan's pipe dream ideas and re-election ploy. And of course the puppets on the City Council forked over the money without even a feasibility study because Galligan told them so. It was the beginning of the disaster, fiasco and cluster %&*# called the Canal Project....Big ideas + small minds = disaster, which is exactly what it was.....and is.
The prudent and sensible thing to do would have been to wait until after the election to start the project but Galligan who has never been accused of being either one of those things "prudent" or " sensible." Nor has the City Council ever had the backbone to stand up to one TG's bad ideas, so together they hand in hand forged ahead.
Now we all know the rest of the story, the people wanted no part of a "Canal" and handily elected Mike Moore who ran on a anti-canal platform. And in essence all those millions of dollars spent on plans, engineers, property acquisition were thrown down the proverbial Sewer.
Moore was now left with a mess, with over half the properties already acquired he had no choice other than proceed with the property acquisitions remaining and try to piecemeal a plan for the area as well as comply with the EPA mandate with already millions wasted on the unneeded properties acquired.
The shame of this whole fiasco were the people who were forced to sell their homes and relocate. Many were elderly who lived and enjoyed living where they were , who now had to worry about finding and financing suitable property after being uprooted from their homes of many years. Having spoke to many of them during the meetings held by the City many of them were scared, having never had gone through anything like this and knowing when push came to shove they had no choice but to sell or have the City take their property through "eminent domain."
I encouraged some of the property owners I met, to organize and go together and hire an attorney specializing in eminent domain in a class action suit. For varying reasons (finances, uncertainty) this never came to fruition. While some, especially the businesses involved hired individual attorneys (myself included) many did not and chose to deal with the City agent (Fifer and associates) in the negotiations and property sales on their own.
In my own personal experience the City lowballed me on their first offer and since these were investment properties (rentals) I dug in my heels and was willing to hold out as long as possible and continue to collect rent. As the process moved forward and the City seemed reluctant because of legal costs (I assume) to prolong the negotiations they offered me a settlement of much more than the appraised value and I gladly accepted after over a year of negotiations, My tenants also received very lucrative re-location settlements and for that I am grateful. I re-invested the money in better properties so on a personal level I came out way ahead.
My concern is those who settled and were not advised by counsel who may have been unprepared to negotiate and may have settled for less than they could have fairly received. I don't know the total of those satisfied or not but there were several I talked to who were very dismayed by the whole process and how they were treated.
No matter how much Councilman2 and NHBSM want to spin this Canal Project as a wasted opportunity it was fiasco plain and simple from start to finish and has become nothing more than a political football being played back and forth with the taxpayers footing the bill. The ignorance of the City Council funding this project before the election knowing that last years election was more or less a referendum on the project itself, shows that putting political favors above the wants and needs of the taxpayers is their agenda not the overall good or the pulse of the people. Someone very close to this told me you can look forward to later on lawsuits being filed by those displaced because they were told their properties were being purchased for the "Canal Project". I believe this is why the City is now being very careful how they utilize these acquired properties , to minimize the effects of these forthcoming lawsuits.
This will go down as the biggest waste of tax dollars and financial fiasco in the history of Jeffersonville all in the idea of the City Council and Galligan's re-election campaign. No wonder Jeffersonville is what it is, and when you pay those $200.00 + a month sewer bills each month you can thank your public servant politicians who have put YOUR hard earned money into their political games....

Here is a little background as to why I was asked to resign. Monday night the city council and redevelopment held a joint meeting, well really two joint meetings. The first joint meeting (5 to 6 PM) was to discuss plans for the park or landing downtown where the big four ramp meets the ground. During the meeting it was brought out there have been no firm plans for the landing and the ramp should be open by April of next year. Rob Waiz, the redevelopment director, had his "Urban Trail" concept plan that he has been pushing for the last couple of months. This is not a very attractive plan for our downtown. I know 4 of 5 on redevelopment did not like it and at least 6 of 9 city council members did not like it.
After discussing this plan for about 40 minutes, the city council asked Peggy Duffy of Construction Solutions to bring out the landing plan (concept) that she put together for the city council. It received a good review from all present at the meeting. To me it was a much better design and more of a park like setting.
This morning Mike Moore called and asked me where I stood on the plans and I told him I liked the council's plan better. Mike then said he needed me to back his plan that was presented by Waiz. I told him I could not back that plan and I thought it was just ugly. Then Mike asked for me to resign.
I can not vote for a plan that I do not think is in the best interest of the citizens and the city of Jeffersonville. I will not be a rubber stamp for someone just because that person appointed me to a board position. I was open and honest with Mike and he was open and honest with me. If he wants a rubber stamp he needs to find one and appoint him/her to my position.
Prior to this, a couple months ago, Waiz presented a plan to the redevelopment commission to lease the old Insty Prints building downtown. The building is close to the corner of Pearl and Market. Waiz wanted to lease this building to a glass blower from Louisville for $1.00 a year for 2 years. The city paid around $400,000 for this property and I voiced that I did not support this type of lease. But before it came to a vote the man signed a lease in Louisville. This is another example of where I could not support the mayor or the redevelopment director.
Having said all this, I still support Mike as our mayor. I have no regrets supporting him in the election and have faith that he will make a good mayor. I also have no regrets in voting for what I thought was best for Jeffersonville.

The canal is a winner as it will spur growth, jobs, and tax dollars and also resolve the downtown flooding problems. It is a brilliant idea that this administration should have been pursuing since day one.
Shall I did up some of your old posts that stated otherwise?

The Bistro very much exists and working hard to get our doors open. We have hit a few set backs with zoning and permits along the way this year and due to that our opening date has continued to remain tentative. The building is where Brad Sprigler designs once was and with his help we have an amazing store we cannot wait to share. The brewery is going to be located directly next to us in the long warehouse and we are as excited as everyone else to see this coming to Jeffersonville. Our building has outdoor deck dining, a lounge, bar, private party room and a large dining area. Through every little detail that has been put into this build you are sure to enjoy this one of a kind concept new to Jeff. Hope to see everyone there. I will keep this updated with future news.
