Abramson Reacts To KLC Report

by Gabe Bullard on December 17, 2009

Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson has reviewed State Auditor Crit Luallen’s scathing report on extravagant spending in the Kentucky League of Cities.

The report also outlines a lack of oversight from the League’s Board of Directors. Abramson is on the board, and he says more oversight is indeed necessary.

“The members of the Kentucky League of Cities Board of Directors were really kept in the dark about a lot of issues,” he says. “We should have asked tougher questions, I guess, over the years. You put your trust in people to lead an organization and unfortunately that trust was misplaced.”

Abramson says he thinks the KLC provides a valuable service for small cities in Kentucky.

“I think if you would the 340-400 or so small city mayors throughout this commonwealth they would tell you that the League of Cities has done an outstanding job of helping them with legal questions and finance questions and things like that,” he says.

Abramson says the board’s next task is to find a replacement for outgoing director Sylvia Lovely.
