Here’s The Scoop…A Whole Lot Of “Baitin” Goin’ On….Are You Willing To Take It?….

BAITING THE POLICE CHIEF….AND/OR BAITING TO GET HERSELF FIRED?…$$$$$$$

Dear Readers…Many of you have asked …”Did the Manager/Vice Mayor “bait” Chief Gooding at the June 23,2009 meeting?”….The simple answer ….NO…NO… and YES!………No…. because the Mayor called Chief Gooding up to the dais….. N0…because unlike the “usual suspects on the dais”…Chief Gooding doesn’t mince words…he represented the facts….and stood his ground for the facts and the truth….and YES…..the “Gang of 3” tried to “bait” the Chief with words of “tightening our belts”… talk of the inclusion of a gym and a conference room being too much for “our little town”…and “needs and wants”…all to no avail…The “Gangly-bait”…slipped right off the hook!…”Bait” seems to do that when it’s  bloated…slippery and rotten!….OOPS!….

On the other hand we hear …the Manager is looking for a way to avoid being reviewed….Hmmm….Case in point …Manager Colon “baited” Comm. Dodd to fire her…to avoid a review that she herself could have taken out of her contract in 2007….Why, we ask again would she fight so hard to thwart what is required….when she “covets” those annual Audit Awards…lining the walls and offering a photo-op for another  “real”  waste of money in these hard economic-belt tightening times…Town Topics?…She is fully aware…and so are readers of this site that a vote to terminate her contract will bring her a 365+ day payout that is not on the table if she resigns….Perhaps if a review is voted down…or becomes a 3-2 “sham”….that CIC  election time “promised” Forensic Audit should be placed upon a future agenda?…OUCH!…

We hear Commissioner Dodd is home and will spending a few hours cramming in the last week’s worth of “orchestrated” plans by the Town Manager and the McIntee -Furth Gang to remove the BSO Police and make the LBTS-McIntee Police Department a reality…The Town Manager we hear said the Commission did not want to go ahead with the renovations on the Sheriff’s offices in the Public Safety Complex…Which Commission was that?…Perhaps Comm. Dodd should ask her (as she asked him at the 6/9/09 fire assessment meeting…prev.post) if there are 2 Commissions?….We have posted the absurd P.R. coming from the “circled wagons” of the Administration…”Gang of 3″ and the CIC that this was a “promotion” for the Chief…That this is “normal” …That a Chief only lasts 5 years before they get “cocky and too comfortable”…That the Chief did not understand the “economic climate” of out town…was “insubordinate”….We have heard the Town Manager overstepped her authority…not on dismissing the the Chief …but on not allowing the Mayor to call for a special meeting…remedied by the Town Ordinance (prev. post) being brought to the Town Attorney who set the Manager straight….We hear the Vice Mayor…feeling emboldened by his clan …is talking to residents and asserting the BSO is too expensive and HE has the experience to put together a police department!…The Future’s got it right…No matter the “Mc-Furth Truth Detector’s” impending protestations sure to be spun in the next VFD Booster Funded BTSTimes issue!…YIKES!….

Tonight…. LBTS Residents and Voters…is the night …

6:30 pm Jarvis Hall Special Meeting BSO Police Chief Gooding/ 7pm Commission Round Table Town Manager Annual Review Discussion…Comcast 78/ online… http://lbts.granicus.com/ViewPublisher.php?view_id=2

There can be no more doubt …….that the McIntee- Furth-Colon- “Gang of 3″…has hijacked LBTS and we are headed on a track that can only come crashing down on all of us….

Stop the train wreck….derail the train….come …stand up for your town….support your BSO Police Department….and throw the “Gang” out!…

more to come….
