MAYOR'S COMMENT

"... I was raised in Fort Gay, I raised my son in Fort Gay and now my grandchildren are being raised in Fort Gay. I want the residents and surrounding areas to be proud of our little town and want to be a part of the much needed change! As a kid and young adult growing up here I thought it was the best. We didn't have a lot in town then either, but we had pride and respect for our town and of course for each other. My mom had a Restaurant in in town for 25 years and there's not a day goes by that someone mentions Ellie and Clarence along with Fort Gay with fond memories.

"...I believe in leadership but most of all it takes teamwork!"

Please get us a decent grocery store. So the people of the Fort Gay area doesn't have to go to Wayne, or leave the state and go to Ky. for our groceries. Please we don't need another beer joint, or gas station. And please don't be like Trump and yell..Fake News. Thank you Mayor Hatfield.
