First off...thanks for all of the interest in the 5th district race. Lisa is a great person and had it not been for the redrawing of the maps, our council districts wouldn't have been combined and we would have never been facing each other in the November general election.
After serving 8 years in any elected office it would be foolish to think anyone could come away without having developed some enemies or at the very least people who for whatever reason, formulated negative opinions about them. I like to think the City of Jeffersonville is in a "Win - Win" position with the District 5 race for November.
Obviously hillbilly highway falls under the category of someone who has formulated negative opinions about me as a City Councilperson, and that is perfectly alright with me as long as his comments and posts are true...I assure they are not.
During my last year on the City Council, I did have a few things going on with my family that precluded me from missing more meetings than in my previous 7 years on the City Council. A quick review of the meeting minutes on the City website under public documents here : http://services.city...wse.aspx?dbid=0
clearly shows I was in attendance for 23 of the 38
meetings held during 2011. That is a far stretch from the 85% missed meetings hillbilly highway posted earlier in this thread.
While I feel I stayed up to date, and involved with what was going on in both my district and the City at the time, my family needs came first and I would not change a thing about where my time was spent in that year.
I have always done my best to represent the people of my district and the City of Jeffersonville. If given the opportunity to serve again, I will bring the same sense of integrity, honesty, and hard work to serving the 5th district.

Mr Fetz I stand corrected on my 85% but the way I see if there was 38 meetings that year that would be about 3 meetings per month which would equal 5 months off from performing your elected duties. So in Mrs Gill's case I believe she has had perfect attendance. Even while in a wheelchair wow that is true dedication to her elected office. Mr Fetz I'm not here to bash you I'm just stating that you failed the People that voted you in office and I dont think you deserve another chance you had your chance and you let us down. Mrs Gill works very hard for dist 5 and will continue to do so.
