Paducah City Commission votes to remove a commissioner

PADUCAH, Ky. (KBSI) – Tuesday night, the Paducah City Commission voted unanimously in favor of removing Commissioner David Guess from the city commission.

It comes after allegations Guess sent text messages with racist undertones to a city employee on election day about a city commission candidate.

In a statement following the decision, Mayor Bray said, “The decision to remove a commissioner, while very challenging and defining for the entire community, we believe sets a standard for behavior as leaders of our city going forward.”
