PIKEVILLE, KY.–As the May primary approaches one Pike County political candidate has found himself receiving unwanted attention.
Former Pike County Road Commissioner and current candidate for Pike County Commissioner Willard Conn appeared before Judge Darrel Mullins as a defendant in a small claims case. The plaintiff in the case Tracey Damron, claims that Conn had leased Spring Branch Farm from her for horse shows. Damron claims she informed Conn that he needed to obtain insurance coverage or she would not renew his lease agreement. Conn allegedly became upset and threatened to destroy the property. Damron claims he made good on his threat, as she found her property vandalized and several items missing the day after the property was vacated.
“Everything was destroyed and vandalized in the concession stand and it was a working concession stand, a working barn. There were buckets of feces, human feces left everywhere. Fuse boxes were ripped out and every electrical wire that I had was cut. You know there is a thing of honor for people who run for public office and where is the honor in this?”
Judge Mullins recused himself from the case and stated a special judge would be appointed. Attorney Ned Pillersdorf is representing Conn. Pillersdorf filed a motion to have the case dismissed, because he says his client denies any liability and could not tell what he is being accused of in the “unintelligible complaint.”
