Buried deep in this story about the Louisville Orchestra was this tidbit:
In an effort to bring the parties together, Mayor Greg Fischer met with both parties Friday afternoon, Fischer spokesman Chris Poynter said. “He wanted to hear where things stood, since the Monday deadline was looming,” Poynter said, adding that Fischer encouraged the two sides to keep talking.
That’s right — Greg Fischer has time to meet regarding the orchestra but has no time to fire his drunken Parks director, no time to deal with Metro Animal Services, no time to handle his MIA EMS director. Guess it’s tough taking time out of his day of showing up at various ribbon cuttings so we can appear in the weekly socialite rags.
The man truly is existing solely to give us crap to write about. Wow.
P.S. Really, a salary of $925 per WEEK? That’s more than most Louisvillians make each week. No wonder the local Orchestra is a disaster.
