Nash Apologizes, Vows to Remain on Bowling Green City Commission

City of Bowling Green

A Bowling Green City Commissioner is expressing remorse for  with public intoxication and says he plans to remain in office.  Slim Nash went on social media on Monday to apologize for his May 23 arrest.

In a Facebook post, Nash said he was sorry for re-traumatizing any individual who has been harmed or had a loved one harmed by alcohol. 

“I have spent the majority of my life trying to help people and would never intentionally do harm," he wrote.

He then apologized to his family for embarrassing them and to his constituents.

"Being your voice in local government is not just a job, it has become a part of who I am as a person,"Nash stated. "I will continue to be your voice."

Nash also shared that he is no longer employed by Uspiritus Centerstone, formerly Bellewood Home for Children. 

Commissioner Nash pleaded guilty in Warren District Court last week to a charge of public intoxication and paid a fine.  This was his second alcohol-related arrest.  He was charged with DUI in 2013, but the charge was later dismissed.
