Interesting to read in The Avis about Mapp government spokesperson Kim Jones' fraud charges. Clearly she knew about these issues prior to accepting the position on the JFL board and accepting the GVI spokesperson position. Isn't anyone on Mapp's team doing even a basic background check on these people before hiring them?

By the way, isn't it interesting that Kim Jones' long time boyfriend Emmett Hansen was recently hired by JFL as THEIR spokesperson at $95,000 a year? Did Kim Jones declare a conflict of interest when the board discussed this new hire? Or did they just not discuss it?

Arnold & Jill Lange got it right in their Letter to the Editor in today's Avis when they wrote "Are any of the new hires or recipients of raises related to or in a personal relationship with sitting JFL board members?"

Most people who know Kim Jones personally know she is in a long term relationship with Emmett Hansen.

The more things change in the VI, the more they stay the same.

No access to Avis.
What do the fraud charges relate to?

For $95K a year, I'd be happy to relocate to STX and be JFL' s spokesperson! Nice gig!

A friend stopped by and actually had the Avis in the car so got to read the article. Those are serious allegations for the crimes she's being charged with.

I'm stunned that there was no background checks before she was hired for her position or if there were, she was still hired. Good grief!

Just read the story. Sounds like she is in some deep doodoo.

The interesting thing is that the charges were file in 2012, so the hospital CEO knew about this . And the previous governor knew also and put her on the hospital board anyway.
