Here’s The Scoop … Scene And Heard Around Town …

CROSSING OVER ….

By The Sea Future Editor Marc Brown sent the candidates a question in the mail on Jan. 12, 2010 to answer for the paper’s Friday Jan. 29, 2010 edition and asked them to respond by Jan. 25th… Candidates Roseann Minnet , Scot Sasser and Chris Vincent answered as they have done for some time now ….Today on the last day to respond the CIC-endorsed candidates  responded as well!…In the morning came a response from Marjorie Evans and in the afternoon came responses from candidates Couriel and Comm. Jim Silverstone! WOW!… At the last LBTS Commission meeting Town Manager Esther held up the BTSFuture newspaper and spoke negatively of its content…Comm. Silverstone repeatedly badmouths the BTSFuture and Editor Mark Brown …Vice Mayor McIntee has threatened to sue the paper and Editor Brown (empty threats due to them having no merit)… Marc and Cristie Furth owners-publishers- editors of the BTSTimes and campaign managers for CIC-endorsed candidates Silverstone, Evans and Couriel go after the Future newspaper every chance they can and doubled up on casting aspersions in their latest CIC- backed candidate edition…the one that still has not been fully distributed 4 days after publication….What’s up with this?…Is the “Truth Deflector” home tossing back a few extra glasses of wine to soften the blow?… Those CIC- minions who regularly hisss about there being “two  newspapers in town” while cursing those who bring the indisputable facts to residents every 3 weeks will surely be left in flux after hearing and reading their candidates have crossed over into the Future!…

While Mark Brown followed protocol and sent a letter to the candidates giving them a couple of weeks to respond, Cristie Furth called candidates Minnet, Sasser and Vincent the day before the Times came out on Jan. 22nd…Cristie left a voice mail for Scot Sasser who was away on business …She called Mayor Minnet and Chris Vincent and asked if they would answer questions for her paper, each said yes and send them over them…. Mayor Minnet,  Chris Vincent and  Scot Sasser never received any questions from Cristie Furth and the BTSTimes…despite that, Cristie Furth falsely stated the following in her paper the next day… “By The Sea Times asked each candidate to submit biographies and personal statements.”…No- Guard Candidates Minnet, Sasser and Vincent all state Ms. Furth not only never sent the e-mail questions…M.s Furth never asked for a biography or a personal statement!… Candidate Sasser called Editor Cristie Furth today to ask about the questions and Editor Marc Furth indicated that the BTSTimes would be following the BTSFuture’s and asking questions of all the candidates in their upcoming editions…OOPS!…

Perhaps, with the dismal distribution of the BTSTimes and the less than exemplary quality of the content…(The Nat. Enquirer comes in at a close second)…the CIC -candidates know they need to reach BTSFuture readers in order to have any chance at becoming an elected official in LBTS!…OUCH!….

ADD IT TO YOUR LAWN TODAY!……

Today  CIC Chair and Editor of the BTSTimes Bob Roberts chose to perpetuate the false statements made int the Times concerning Mayor Minnet’s voting record!….

Subject: LBTS Commission meeting

Dear CIC Member

The last LBTS Commission meeting for January, and the third from the
last meeting with the present Commissioners, will be held on Tuesday
evening, January 26th. It is again important that as many of us as
possible attend the meeting to show support for those Commissioners that
support policies that enhance the quality of life for Town residents.
Mayor Minnet now claims to be for the same policies that the CIC has
always endorsed, however her record shows that she voted NO on every
major action such as bringing back the VFD.

See you at the Commission meeting!

Bob Roberts, Chair”

……………………………

ALERT … MAYOR  MINNET VOTED ….

YES ….TO THE VFD TRANSITION ON MARCH 25, 2008

YES ….TO THE VFD CONTRACT  ON SEPTEMBER 12, 2008

YES…..TO THE BEACH SIGN POSTS …

I see a retraction coming…..

…………………………………

CANDIDATES WITH PALM CARDS -SIGNS AND A MEASURING TAPE?….

After sending the code enforcement officers throughout the Town when candidates Minnet, Sasser and Vincent put out their lawn signs…..where they knocked on doors and informed residents of the rules……and after a 4 day “pass” for CIC- candidates signs boldly put in the Right- of- Ways and anywhere else Marc Furth and his Mc- pals wanted to stick em’…the Town has suddenly decided the candidates should become code enforcement and police the signs going forward!…WOW!… We hear one code enforcer told a resident they had over 400 complaints…HUH?…..Maybe the Town Manager believes this too falls under a “Town Manager form of government” (prev. Post)… OOPS!….
