Top Stories

OWENSBORO (WEHT) – A misogynistic post against the first woman vice president has a prominent member of the Owensboro community facing a serious backlash. 

Ted Lolly was asked to resign his position on the Owensboro City Utility Commission over his post.  Daviess County Judge-Executive Al Mattingly said Lolley resigned late Thursday afternoon from that board and two others. 

It started with Lolley’s reply on Facebook using a derogatory term against women, after another person had posted about Vice President Kamala Harris shattering the glass ceiling. Lolley removed his post and later apologized for that comment on a separate Facebook post. 

Lolley owns Lolley and Associates engineering firm in Owensboro. Eyewitness News reached out to Lolley for comment but the request was not returned.
