BRIDGE BUILDER is the story of a man and his dream to move
his home county into the modern era. His stubborn pursuit of openness and
accountability provoked hostility from some, but admiration from most. His
populist idealism and his promotion of the common man endeared him to his
constituents and he never lost touch with his origins or his source of support.
BRIDGE BUILDER is a must-read for all politicians. It makes a
lasting contribution to Kentucky history and students of local government will
be reading it for a very long time.
