  • Constable-elect ineligible to serve

    Democrats are calling for the replacement of Waterford Constable-elect Jeremy “J.T.” Bass after discovering that he is ineligible to serve.

    “It is obvious that the Waterford District cannot be adequately served and represented by a constable who does not live in Spencer County,” said Democrat Party Chairman Carmin Gaines. “I have no doubt that the voters of Waterford would not have elected a person to represent them and their interests if they had been aware he lives outside the county.”

    That was before he learned that one park’s misfortune would be his stroke of good luck.
