G-LtE™: Did Gilmer County Commission Follow the Rules?

CLARKSBURG — The Harrison County Commission may have violated a state law that dictates the process for modifying a county’s government when it hired County Administrator Willie Parker in 2013.
That’s according to County Clerk Susan Thomas, who pointed to section 7-1-1a of West Virginia Code, which outlines a series of steps to be followed before altering a county’s form of government — including the hiring of a county administrator. These steps include passing a resolution seeking approval from the Legislature and collecting signatures from 10 percent of the county’s registered voters.
“The way I look at it, they’re violating 7-1-1a and have been since he was hired,” Thomas said. “They never changed the form of government, and I think (Parker) is doing things that are outside the realm of what an administrative assistant would do. He’s making decisions I think that should be made by an elected official.”
The Taylor County Commission recently reversed its decision to hire a county administrator after consulting with prosecutors during a special meeting June 29.

The WALRUS Brian Kennedy Gilmer County Commissioner GOES TO COURT 360 days after being arrested for DUI

Here is how the headline read that reported the DUI bust of Brian Kennedy…
GLENVILLE, W. Va. — The West Virginia State Police arrested and charged Gilmer County Commissioner Brian Kennedy with a DUI over the weekend, although Kennedy was never taken to jail, but straight to the Gilmer County Courthouse where MAGISTRATE CAROL WOLFE was waiting for him alone so he would not have to be booked into Central Regional Jail like a normal citizen, maintaining his power elite status.
Senior Trooper K. J. Varner II pulled Kennedy over at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday after he was seen driving erratically on U.S. 33 in Gilmer County. This was NOT the first time for Brian Kennedy, that is for sure.
Once pulled over, Varner said he detected alcohol on Kennedy’s breath and initiated the proper procedures.
A secondary chemical test revealed Kennedy’s BAC was at 0.089, which is over the 0.08 limit.
Varner said Kennedy was cooperative while detained until around 10:30 p.m., when Magistrate Judge Carol L. Wolfe arraigned and released him on a personal recognizance bond.
According to Judge Wolfe’s office, as of Monday, no dates have been set in regard to the case, in fact Carol Wolfe recused herself from hearing the case and so did Magistrate Skinner, leaving NO MAGISTRATE available in Gilmer County to hear the case, therefore a court date cannot be set at this time.
A representative from the Gilmer County Commission has not yet been available for comment on the matter at this time
Common Sense for the Common Crooked County Crook IS what we got when we elected self proclaimed Gilmer County elitist Crooked County Commission President Brian Kennedy! His Common sense platform Kennedy ran on to get elected does not look sensible anymore, that is for sure!)
And NOW some comments from Gilmer County Citizens posted on the Gilmer Free Press.
Is this the same joker that ran on the platform of “Common Sense for the Common Man”? by vote him in again
