Fired Tourism General Manager Says She's Going Back To Work

The fired Paintsville Tourism General Manager says she's going back to work Friday.

Nancy Price says a judge ruled she can return to work while a wrongful termination lawsuit is pending.

Tourism commissioners voted three to two to terminate price last month.

Board members voting against price said they wanted to move in a different direction.

Price feels the firing was unfair and believes it should be a city council decision, not the tourism boards.

    Maybe she can transfer to the new Tourism office in Japan?

    Your job title is Tourism General Manager and you are fired by the Tourism Board, that definitely sounds like the wrong people to fire you. The one thing this story doesn’t mention is anything that she may have done to bring more tourists to the area. Typically when you are fired from a job, you didn’t perform at a level set for that job. If your job is tourism manager and you aren’t bringing in tourist you should be fired. Lets get this straight there are many things in South-Eastern Kentucky that are just as sellable to tourist as other attractions in the country. The difference is we have chosen to set back and do our thing and not try to show off the natural beauty of Southeast Kentucky. To hold yearly fireworks show or a peanut festival or what ever the theme may be is not tourism.
