- About Greg Fischer’s Latest LMAS Claims…
Following yesterday’s news that Greg Fischer had appointed three new out-of-state folks to run Louisville Metro Animal Services, we kept you in-the-loop. We even reminded you that he hired this lady who was repeatedly fired and arrested at her last shelter job.
But last night we revealed that the woman Greg Fischer and his top dog, Sadiqa Reynolds, picked to serve as director of LMAS — Jessica Jo Montgomery — has a softcore porn/sexualized photo/whatever very recent past:

Another embarrassing mess for the mayor and his embattled, never-improving Animal Services agency for sure.
Fischer’s team spent half the night burning phones up and emailing like crazy. He’s already facing public scrutiny and can’t seem to delete social media reactions quickly enough:

It’s truly a sad mess for this city.
But some reminders:
Jackie Gulbe was fired for less.
Wayne Zelinsky was fired for less.
Countless other individuals in leadership roles within the Fischer Administration have been fired for less.
But Greg Fischer will likely sit on his hands with this one because he’s directly responsible. His right hand, Sadiqa Reynolds, picked this bunch of people. All the others were Jerry Abramson holdovers.
Despite this woman having no experience at all running an animal shelter like this (taking care of 40 military dogs is not an animal shelter that kills thousands upon thousands of cats and dogs each year) and her now embroiled in a sexy photo mess, he’ll probably keep her on and introduce another double standard. In fact, he and his team will try to turn this around by attacking the messenger.
UPDATE Nope, those photos aren’t old. Extremely recent. Posted within the past two years. Tons of other sites, as well.
She’s gone to quite a few lengths to promote herself:

SOME TAMER PHOTOS
She knew she was taking this job and didn’t attempt to exhibit any level of professional modesty. The people selecting her for this job did absolutely no vetting. Sadiqa just pulled a random name out of a hat and moved along.
Lest anyone think Sadiqa wasn’t 100% responsible for this hire? Here she is in her own words:
Sadiqa Reynolds is absolutely responsible and she says she led the search.
This wasn’t the new director having fun with friends and posting random photos on Instagram. This was part of her professional life. She was posing semi-nude in a sexualized manner in an attempt to get jobs. So it’s hardly her private life and people wringing their hands need to calm the heck down.
She’s now a government official. This is hardly bashing her. She promoted this work professionally. Herself. This was not some random incident.
Ignoring all of this for a moment… examine her experience and you’ll quickly find that she has no experience running a shelter, a government agency or euthanizing thousands of animals per year. None. But several other past applicants have had the experience and continue to prove their credibility elsewhere.
And the other woman, the assistant director, with her firings and arrest related to her work at other shelters?
Ignore the pretty pictures. That’s all kind of a nightmare in the making.
Why mention ethics?
From the Standards of Ethical Conduct training manual new hires receive, under Principles of Behavior:
Employees shall conduct themselves, on and off the job, in a manner that would not cause discredit to Louisville Metro Government.
YET ANOTHER UPDATE
While Greg Fischer & Crew attempt to spin this while attacking the messenger, get a load of what they’re doing:

They’re so troubled by this that they’ve blocked the ability for Metro Government employees to access what they’re attempting to claim are simple modeling photographs.
