Last night Greg Fischer held another one of his cyberse… internet chats.
Here’s Greg throwing up what appears to be an almost shocker (?):
Awkward. More awkward than listening to him try to talk to, well, anybody.
But there was a question that conveniently remained unaddressed last night about LMEMS shenanigans/Bloomberg/getting spendy:
Here’s the text of it:
Who is Bob Ruhala? Why have we hired someone from Georgia to assist in managing the Bloomberg Grant? Why can’t I find ANY salary information on this individual? Nor can I find a contract for his services, although Mr. Ruhala is on the approved vendor list. I understand that Mr. Ruhala was here before doing some kind of consulting on the computer system in LMEMS and that he was paid in excess of $200K. He was brought back by request to work on the Bloomberg Grant? But, he’s attending staff meetings, sending out memorandums, conducting meetings. Generally, even high priced consultants, consult, not perform operations duties. Your administration could not find someone already in Metro Louisville government, or in the Metro area who can do this work? Kristin Miller is not capable of managing this grant? Where is the transparency? How much of the Bloomberg Grant is going to pay Mr. Ruhala’s salary and that of any others hired in to run the grant, as opposed to educating people on when it is proper to call EMS?
We don’t expect an answer any time soon.
