Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Jamie Comer says his office will be much more transparent than his predecessor’s.
Former Commissioner Richie Farmer has come under scrutiny and has been through numerous investigations for alleged misdeeds during his two terms in that post. Farmer’s hiring practices have also been called into question, with Comer saying he has been able to let some of the “bad apples go,” while keeping some of the good employees on the force.
Comer says a new department website will soon be launched where Kentuckians can look over all expenses and revenues at their convenience.
Commissioner Comer says there are also other projects in the works to make his department more accessible and transparent.
