What may have started as a dispute with a Frankfort City Council member has become a letter-writing campaign for Mayor Chris McBarnes.

Frankfort’s chief executive is trying to both combat what he sees as false rumors about possible debt the city will rack up in his last two years in this term of office and speak openly about the problems the city faces.

This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we go over the first two missives of a four-letter series the mayor is planning and ask why he was so blunt about the challenges ahead.

Also on this week’s show, the mayor says he believes 90-95 percent of all crime in Frankfort is related to drugs in some way. That’s one reason he’s traveling with his police chief to a conference about the state’s drug epidemic.

But can the number really be that high?
