King Requests Audit of Discretionary Funds, Asks for Amended Ethics Complaint Against Green

by Gabe Bullard on March 9, 2011

Louisville Metro Council President Jim King is calling on the Ethics Commission to add the latest allegations against Councilwoman Judy Green to the existing ethics complaint against her.

Green allegedly asked the 100 Black Men organization to request more city funds than necessary, then allocate the surplus at her discretion. King has sent Government Accountability Committee Chair Tina Ward-Pugh a letter about the issue. He’s also calling for an audit of all discretionary spending over $5,000 in the past two years. LEO reports that council Republicans will ask Mayor Greg Fischer to reduce the amount of ¬†discretionary funds in the next city budget. Fischer’s spokesperson Chris Poynter said today the mayor will consider it.

They need a complete audit. Discretionary funds are not good and there is limited accountability. Follow the taxpayer money and you will find problems and fraud.
