Here’s The Scoop …. 2 Years Later The 2nd Batch Of Sausage Is Done … And We Have Ourselves A Batch With The Right Ingredients!..

March 9, 2010 by Barbara

TUESDAY MARCH 9, 2010 ….

Dear Readers…As I sit here at 4:49 am getting ready to head over to the Jarvis Hall Polling Place…I am in wonderment that this day has finally arrived!…I started this site the day after the last election In January 2008… It was to get the word out about what was going on in LBTS ….In came out of a contentious all consuming experience in the CIC campaign for Wick,Dodd and Clottey….I was shut down in the ability to write by the past owners and editors of By The Sea Times and the defunct relatively new CIC website…along with what I began to call the Mc-Furth “Gang”… It was a behind the scenes madhouse of a campaign that was coming apart at the seems from egos and self-serving agendas!… We did keep it well hidden from view as we headed into a victory….But 2 years ago as the election was won on a day such as this…that campaign committee was already well separated and defunct…

Long time and what I began to call “Avid Readers”…will recall the chain of events that ultimately led to the Sausage Series category (see categories)… and are also quite aware of the journey this writer has taken them on with uncovering the Mc-Furth-Colon agenda…with questionable majority/administration purchases large and small…along with startling facts never revealed until they were posted on this site…The Manager’s contract …her 1 year full salary severance with no term in the contract that McIntee and Silverstone either lied about along with the Manager or did not read along with 2 other former commissioners… Readers recall the Annual Performance Review uncovered in her contract and then the long drawn out contentious efforts by McIntee, Silverstone, Clottey, Colon and the CIC leftover supporters to thwart the required review…and the sub-standard farce that finally took place …A look back recall many other sorted and disturbing patterns of unilateral and costly actions taken by the Town Manager and supported by the McIntee-Silverstone-Clottey-Furth-CIC “Gang”…such as the Beach Pavilion which floods….and is now rusting away…The removal of reading RFPs aloud…The $200,000 dollar 3 year Audit contract done without the proper backup given to the commission…firings of personnel and then going after them….going after businesses and taxpaying residents as payback …The garbage fiasco which was first written about and predicted right here at the very first sit down pre-bid meeting with only this writer in attendance along with the waste companies… The backup that is now on the website…did not come from Candidate-Comm. Jim”He’s not a nice guy”Silverstone…it came only after the PIO D’Oliveira said it could be done and the Town Manager was accepting of it because she did not like me coming into Town Hall every 2 weeks and reading the backup!…I was stopped from getting copies made…Public Records requests were slowed down…and costs were added on to stop the flow of information (same for the RFPs in July 2009)… The Public Records requests were made more difficult by changing who was the contact person…The McIntee-0Silverstone-Clottey -Colon-Furth “Gang” was wholeheartedly supportive of stopping the information getting out and fought to find reason to assist the Administration in ways that could only make this writer shake my head in amazement! …For 2 years it has not changed it only increased in brazen ways that no one could have predicted…including the termination of BSO CHief Gooding…the Senior Center …and the El Mar median “walkways”… and so much more…(2 years of “more” in archived posts)….Case in point …. the latest…the Ocampo contract…reads “The owner (Town) is advised that all construction components are designed to the MINIMUM CODE REQUIREMENTS, which are at the LOWER boundary of design quality, unless otherwise requested.”… a million dollar contract signed by the Assist. TM Olinzock for TM Colon on Dec. 11, 2009…a contract hat produces $117.600 for Ocampo from a $980,000 project!… So it continues on…with the “blessing” of those who are asking for your vote today…Silverstone/Evans/Couriel and their campaign managers Marc and Cristie Furth!…ARGHHH…….

The loss of support in the CIC has been staggering…as others too caught on to bad acts…bad behavior and walked away…The lack of  participants in Jarvis Hall for the “Gang” is not out of any fear of “mob rule” from the those who chose to attend…Just as the lack of participation has not been there in this race for the CIC endorsed candidates…(just paid out of town sign holders…door hangers…and robo- call firms)….It is due to the fact that enough is enough and this “Gang” has worn out their welcome….The residents…voters…and taxpayers saw what this writer saw in “How The Sausage Was Made”…and saw that what was posted here was fact!…

Today, I can tell those same well informed Avid Readers…with the second batch of sausage ..Minnet/Sasser/Vincent…there is no bad ingredients in this batch!…

I have watched these three candidates run a steller campaign they can all be proud of…No negative mud-slinging….No “Fear-mongering”… No empty or distorted promises …skewed political records or  dirty politics …as they have endured from their Furth backed opponents throughout…(as have the voters)…

These 3 candidates are ready willing and able to provide the voters …taxpayers…residents and businesses of this town what they did not get 2 years ago…a voice…reason…decorum…civility…transparency and a chance to move forward with inclusion for all!…

Today, Dear Readers…it is finally  time to rectify what I helped to create…Today is the chance to make LBTS, the Town we all want to call home…our home…a great place to live!…

Please get out and vote…take your neighbors…take your friends…and make your vote count…in the effort to get it right this time!…

Here’s The Scoop … Scene And Heard Around Town … Counting Down … One More Day …

March 7, 2010 by Barbara

ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER …..

DISTRICT 1 CANDIDATE SCOT SASSER’S MOTHER…3/7/10….

Dear Readers … One day from now we will all know who the voters decided could lead us for the next 2-4 years in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea…Yesterday, once again the Town’s corners were full with supporters for Minnet/Sasser/Vincent… and except for a few students from Cardinal Gibbons receiving Community Service points for standing with a political sign…. the outside of town limits, paid help for Silverstone/Evans/Couriel was nowhere in sight…Hmmmm…

What was happening shows just why voters have to get it right on Tuesday when they fill in that second “bubble” on the ballot…The Furth-CIC  members walked around to the supporters of homes of Minnet/Sasser/Vincent with a “Goody Bag”…In it was a CIC gaggle of “gifts”…to try and sway their votes…HA!… Come on!… Too funny…. except for where some of them were placed…OOPS!…

Hi Barbara It is now 12:45 March 7, 2010. I just returned from outside where I found all sorts of election material in MY MAILBOX. I thought it was illegal to place election material in the mail box, but you could place material near the mailbox. Please advise because I am very annoyed. I live at xxxx Poinciana St. LBTS 33308 Thanks xxxx. By the way this was paid for and approved by the Citizens Initiative Committee,not endorsed by any candidate.

…………………………

Here’s what was in one of the bags passed out today…Will supporters change their position on the candidates for plastic bags containing the last flier they received in the mail ……

“THEY MUST WALK THE WALK”…”COURIEL-EVANS-& SILVERSTONE HAVE WALKED THE WALK”… states the flier…..This writer agrees!…

That the Furths chose to use this old adage to describe their candidates….YIKES!… “As you may recall”… McIntee’s infamous statement in December ….that brought forth the “Quack, Quack” post!….(Bye, Bye, Bye…post)…

“IF  YOU WALK LIKE A DUCK, IF YOU WADDLE LIKE A DUCK, YOU GOTTA BE A DUCK” Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee 12/8/09 … (prev. post LBTS Agendas/Meetings cat. 12/11/09)..

Also included was the cheap minty green pen …a pseudo-ballot that wrongly displays the real ballot (using arrows  and check marks- no correct verbage/ “bubbles”!)…posted notes that read Re-elect Jim Silverstone Your Town Commissioner…(Note to self…vote for the other guy!)…Jim’s candidate business card…

And the best “gift”…..Jim”He’s not a nice guy” Silverstone’s red plastic band-aid holder that read “Re-Elect Jim Silverstone”…the one with the single band-aid in it that says “SWIFT”…(Couldn’t make it up any better”…It’s “Swift” alright!… We had some pretty funny quips from the “goody bag”recipients … …

Here’s a few… JIM SILVERSTONE BAND-AID JOKES…

“HE IS STUCK ON MCINTEE AND MCINTEE STUCK ON HIM!”

“LBTS YOU CAN’T PUT A BAND-AID ON THE PROBLEMS!”

“HOW MANY BAND-AIDS DOES IT TAKE TO STOP THE FLOODS!”

“TOO MANY SILVERSTONE BOO BOOS AND NOT ENOUGH BAND-AIDS TO COVER THEM UP!”

Readers are invited to add some more just send them in…

Also was a postcard that appears to be one for the Florida Elections Commission to get a complaint filed on… It is of the LBTS “REEF”…stating “Joe, Jim & Marjorie support the reef project”…. on the back it stated “Please vote 3/9/2010 Joe Couriel for Mayor etc…below it states”Pd. Pol. adv. by Hannah Hempstead-no candidate approved”…BUT… it contains Jim Silvsertones scanned signature!… Ms. Hempstead has already given donations to the candidates according to their required donation reports..so did she keep within the $300 maximum allowed and this was a way to bypass that amount?….If the candidates did not approve it as it states… …why does it contain Jim Silverstone’s scanned signature and why it it in a candidate approved “goody bag”?… Ms. Hempstead..Yep, that Hannah Hempstead the one who sits behind her opposition to snoop and to videotape fellow residents inside Jarvis Hall (prev.post)…should have a lot of company inf front of the Fl. Elections Commission…if the last candidate reports do not show the big buck$ paid out by the CIC-Silverstone/Evans and Couriel for BTSTimes ads…multiple mailers…The BTSTimes mailed and candidate paid for election newspaper…Silverstone’s half page Sentinel Sunday ad (larger the Town’s Municipal Election ad, Sunday in the Sentinel Local section-on the back page with ads…Hmmm…you would think the Colon Administration was hoping for a small vote turnout, assisting by using the last possible day to get it printed!)… Evans had ads in the Pelican and Hi-Riser…also MIA in her reports… We have been informed by those in the know,that purposeful delays in reporting expenditures or contributions are also grounds for finding probable cause!…OUCH!… One more biggie…Mayoral Candidate Joe Couriel who NEVER stepped down as the CIC Vice Chair!….GULP!…

Perhaps, the “Goody bag” for those who support their opposition will be the Candidates and their Campaign Managers…along with certain supporters having to face the music in Tallahassee …..and this one requires no street closures!…

…………………………………….

Candidate Marjorie Evans showed this writer once again why I have no respect for her…When she is awake …(outside of commission meetings)…. Mrs. Evans showed me loud and clear today why she tied her apron strings to the Furths-Clottey-Silverstone and Couriel…She too is a nasty piece of work…(Is there a vaccine for this?)… I was standing in the median on A1A and Commercial yesterday waving the signs for Minnet/Sasser/Vincent when she did a u-turn and stopped where I was standing..she waved and I did not respond…She rolled down her window to say “Did you like reading about yourself in the paper?”…I did not respond..She said “so you’re a minority business?”… I finally responded knowing full well what she was spewing…In the BTSTimes election newspaper…fully paid for by Evans/Silverstone/Couriel….A “Staff Writer”…(Moe McIntee most likely aka  the “Truth Deflector”)…wrote “Minority Profits” …In it she made such erroneous and stupid statements…the kind that could only be made by someone who has limited information on me, my business ..and especially the federal government and how a company works when doing business with the government…I expected as much from the “Truth Deflector”…She is known for not seeing the forest through the trees when it comes to her “Deflector” work…BUT …. from Candidate Marjorie Evans…a WOMAN who runs a non-profit organization..who is running on her expertize for working with the federal government…YIKES!… I told Marjorie “Marjorie I own a business and it’s a woman owned business..YOU of all people should understand that!”… I also told Candidate Evans “If you figure out how to get money from the government without bidding for it…you let me know!”…(The article said I do not have to submit competitive bids, “just send away for federal money-no questions asked”)…She rolled up her window and drove away…

OOPS!… I quickly realized when she drove away…SHE does know how!…It’s what we have been told she does best according  her “handlers”……and her running mates……SHE gets money from the federal government $15 million per year!…(Taxpayer’s money!)…As a woman (minority) who heads up a federally funded non-profit organization and receives $150,000 a year!…My business has no such luck!…..There are no federal funds with no questions asked for hard working for profit businesses…man or woman!……Marjorie Evans long steeped in getting non-profit government money….with a cushy salary …. just doesn’t get it!… Do you want this woman to represent you?…

By the way Marjorie…can I sue the BTSTimes for a racial slur?…When they called my husband and I “A wealthy, white couple”?…Were they “profiling?”…OUCH!…

Only 48 hours more to insert foot in mouth…..

more to come….

Here’s The Scoop … Certain Founding Members Of The CIC Are Hanging Their Heads In Shame Today! ….. BSO E-MAIL CLARIFICATION RESPONSE TO THE BY THE SEA TIMES! ……

March 6, 2010 by Barbara

WHERE THE FEAR-MONGERING IS MADE TO BE EXPLOITATIVE AS THE BSO WAS USED TO TRY AND WIN A MAYORAL ELECTION …

An Avid Reader sent this photo in on their drive down El Mar this afternoon…(Commissioner “Clueless” Clottey)……

Dear Readers …certain founding members of the CAC and the CIC are hanging their heads in shame today from the demise of their once strong political action committee… An organization that was built on morals and following the rules… This proud organization  was 200+ strong only 2 short years ago when the last LBTS Municipal election took place…Today is is just a shell of its former self…It was run into the ground by the McIntees and the Furths…In two short years after claiming the majority on the dais these two along with Commissioner Silverstone, Commissioner Clottey, the Wardlaws, the Roberts and a few straggler CIC Board members have thrown the former CIC Chair under the bus after tarring and feathering him at a CIC meeting (see Sausage series cat.)…denigrated and humiliated founding member John Thompson and made it so he could no longer be a full time member…and proceeded to lose most of their membership in the process…It is they that have been the “intimidators” to those who chose to not follow them down the wrong path and walk (run) away…… No one that was involved in the CIC and was involved for the right reasons can wrap their heads around the muck and mire this “gang” has jumped head first into with such reckless abandon!… This campaign they have done what they said they would never do…over and over again…This campaign they have gone negative  because they are unable to run on the now revealed truth behind their records…This campaign due to having so little support  has”hired” outside help to hold up political signs…(a despicable act so said McIntee a few years back…prev. post)…Hired outside help to do “Robocalls” to voters…(They were incensed by this when used by Cand. Minnet 2 years ago)…This campaign they have done a “push-poll”… (3/6/10 New Flash “based on results from local polls.” …again McIntee/ Furths went after the prior commission for doing one)… This campaign they have made more egregious accusations that are sent out as BTSTimes “facts”…(an oxymoron?)…

Case in point…the most recent…today’s, online News Flash…from BTSTimes ….

“Couriel, Evans, and Silverstone canvassers have been physically blocked, told they are being reported to the police because they don’t have a permit (no permit required) threatened to have legal complaints filed against them, and stalked to get their license plate numbers. The worst shame of all was having one of Minnet, Sasser, and Vincent’s staunchest supporters literally spit in Mayoral Candidate, Joe Couriel’s face while stating he will be killed if he is elected. Unbelievable, right?

Thankfully, BSO Chief Llerena has been overseeing this group to make sure the intimidation stops and citizens are free to campaign without being harassed.”

……………………………

The Editors Furth know full well as do those who watched the March 4, 2010 Commission Meeting when BSO Chief Llerena came forward that this is an ongoing -open investigation…They too know the facts…that both side went in and filed reports claiming spitting and intense insults came from “BOTH SIDES” with Couriel a full participant, not a victim………They too know the BSO police has the DVD that  clearly shows the “harassed citizen” of the prior BTSTimes New Flash was just a political campaign ruse to buy votes for this sinking group Silverstone/Evands/ Couriel…

When this writer posted the full e-mail rather than the Furth “edited” version along with the others CIC-“Newbie” Liliana Pomareda sent out and the video it put a damper on their first attempt to alter the outcome of the March 9, 2010 election . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aalo2v3NbJI

Unhappy with these facts taking the wind out of their political sails…the “Gang” went to the March 4, 2010 Commission meeting and piled on with their Furth-fully orchestrated stomach turning false accusations of racial slurs…intimidation…and using child safety “concerns” of internet predators as a ploy to stop the DVD from being shown (stopped 3-2 by Silverstone/Clottey/McIntee)…and stating a candidate would be “killed if elected”…(Clottey in her Comm. comments)…. Cristie Furth…Vice Mayor McIntee… Comm. Birute Clottey…Comm. Jim “He’s not a nice guy” Silverstone…Town Manager Esther Colon…reminded us all of what has really been going on since the CIC won the election in January 2008!…  http://lbts.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=2&clip_id=296 …This was a parting “gift” to those of us who were afraid “out of sight, out of mind” with a MIA McIntee would impact the election … due to voters forgetting too soon!…

With two strike outs…  what is left in their last minute arsenal?…A 24 page mailed and online fully paid for by candidates Silverstone/Evans/ Couriel edition of the By The Sea Times (will it show in their G4 reports)….packed full of the same unwinnable, unverifiable assertions that no matter how many times or ways the Furths/Silverstone/Evans/Couriel/ Wardlaw/ Staff Writer/ Truth “Deflector” try to write it…or distribute it…( door to door, online or bulk mail)… still does not pass the smell test of reality!…

Perhaps they too know it isn’t working…and they needed to amp it up thus they used BSO Police Chief Llerena to try and give some credence to their sickening false claims!… Will the Chief stand by and be used in such a fashion?….It does not bode well and this writer thinks it is a disgrace to put him and his department in such a predicament!… The Furths do not care, we know that by now!…They’ve got a race to win!……Why should they?…After falsely perpetuating lie after lie in and out of print……whether it’s voting records…Town Manager contracts…reviews…defaming founding and former CIC members …assertions of racial slurs …assertions of killing a mayoral candidate… or false claims of grand-parentage…(Hmmm is it not just as “concerning” to run a baby’s photo in every edition of the local paper especially after Candidate Evans told us all what sexual predators are  living in our area…It seems a much bigger “concern” then claims of “stranger danger” on Youtube…(How many pedophiles go on youtube and look under “What’s this election coming to?” for subject matter?…)…it’s all or nothing with bases loaded…3 days from the vote!…

It’s anyone’s guess what else is being cooked up in Town Hall East tonight…tomorrow…and Monday….What kind of turmoil …mischief…and (Dvorak assisted?) vandalism will arise throughout town long after midnight comes around (full moon?) …..But one things for sure when Cristie Furth is not showering…the bottom is falling out…Watch out!…

Dear Ms. Cole,

Thank you for relaying your concerns. While BSO does not have the authority to “remove” a newsflash put out by our local media, I did take the time to clarify some statements that may lead a reader to believe that BSO condones biased-based policing.

Again, thank you for bringing this matter to my attention,

Dear By The Sea Times Editor,

In response to your 06 MAR 10 “news flash”, I am pleased to see that our efforts to promote public safety are noted.

I also believe it important that you offer clarification to your readers regarding some of your statements, specifically, “Thankfully, BSO Chief Llerena has been overseeing this group to make sure the intimidation
stops and citizens are free to campaign without being harrassed [sic].”

As a result of the unfortunate incident on 01 MAR 10 at the intersection of A1A and Commercial Boulevard, we received reports of inappropriate conduct from candidates and supporters on both sides of this election. These disturbances quickly stopped once we were summoned and responded to the scene.

As I stated at the 04 MAR 10 Commission meeting, I urge all residents to accept responsibility for their actions and not let their emotions get the best of them during this political election. To state that the BSO Lauderdale-by-the-Sea district has been overseeing “this group” may lead a reader to mistakenly believe this is an instance of biased-based policing.

BSO does not tolerate biased-based policing, regardless of race, color, creed or political affiliation. The LBTS district strives to maintain the peace while protecting the rights of all individuals.

We are proud of the fact that throughout this election campaign, we have done our best to address any breaches of the peace, regardless of political affiliation. All allegations of inappropriate conduct or criminal mischief were addressed quickly and decisively. We have not been notified of subsequent campaign-related disturbances after the unfortunate incident last Monday.

Again, we appreciate when the public we serve recognizes our efforts to promote the public safety for the Town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

Best Regards,

Chief Oscar Llerena

Here’s The Scoop … M & Ms & Fs … Part 3 … 4 More Years?….

February 7, 2010 by Barbara

IN M & Ms & Fs …WE TRUST ….  FOR 4 MORE YEARS?….

Dear Readers ….are you really going to put your trust and confidence behind 4 more years of an M & Ms & Fs run Lauderdale- By- The- Sea?… Can we afford it?… If you are truly looking for a change in the status quo…accountability with transparency along with inclusion and fair representation…it won’t be coming from this “New Gang”!…

In the campaign run by the Furths out of their Blue Seas motel we have encountered the worst of the worst in negative campaigning …sending the left over CIC minions to spread fearmongering and falsehoods throughout the town …with statements made by their candidates of the opponents being “fly by night candidates” who have not lived here long enough…We know that is false…The candidates opposing the Furths’ candidates have lived here for quite some time…

Candidate Mayor Minnet has lived here for 15 years/ Candidate Chris Vincent has lived here since 2002/ Candidate Scot Sasser has lived here since 2003 …All were homeowners-taxpayers from the beginning…

The Furths’ candidates Commissioner  Jimmy ‘He’s not a nice guy” Silverstone- not a homeowner until July 2008/ Candidate Marjorie Evans has been a LBTS resident since annexation in 2001, something she needed to clarify AFTER it was posted here that she was not a 40 year resident of LBTS/ Candidate Joe Couriel since 1994 about the same as the Mayor…OOPS! …

The Furths’ candidates are walking into meetings telling residents that their opponents can “stop Bert J. Harris”…and we hear the mayoral candidate Joe Couriel is saying Bert J. Harris “is done” we have nothing to worry about…Bert J. Harris cannot be “stopped”…The Town Atty. after being asked by Mayor Minnet conceded it was not yet known if it would be appealed….So to “predict” on the dais or on the campaign trail shows a clear lack of judgment ….The same Joe Couriel is said to be exclaiming he as Mayor can throw people out of Jarvis Hall with no warning!…To make such assertions reminds us all what an “Udder” (Silverstone “speak”)…hothead he is!…. We hear Jimmy and Marjorie stand by shaking their heads in full agreement when Joe rambles on and on and on… … Reports are that Candidate Marjorie Evans is telling people she will bring us grants and use her connections to Broward County and the State to benefit the Town……My reply is where has she been in the last 9 years with those connections?… I am told that at each stop and at events the same Marjorie Evans is said to be saying this site has “ruined her professionally” …How so?…Pointing out her lack of information and pulling up her deposition that made this writer shudder from reading her responses….She said she met me downtown and I would not speak to her…not quite true, lack of recall perhaps?…I did see her at the Jan 21, 2010 special event meeting and she turn to speak to me and I did tell her after she pointed her finger at me to make sure I knew she meant me that I knew she was speaking to me…I told her I had nothing to say to her……She is said to claim she sent me a letter… Never received, doubt it was sent …. Look, I have no respect for Marjorie Evans running for Commissioner in Dist. 1… I am quite serious when I write “Would Marjorie Evans vote for Marjorie Evans?”….She knows nothing about the Town…She walked into Jarvis Hall for the 1st time to announce for Commissioner and left after public comments……She and her newest”galpal” Comm. “Clueless” Clottey along with Furth CIC-Furth “galpal” Maryann Wardlaw keep perpetuating the false statement that Candidates Sasser and Vincent announced at the podium at Jarvis Hall…knowing they did not!… Marjorie Evans who it is said tells voters she is a quick learner and can bring much to the dais did not take time to “bone-up” on the Master Plan Steering Committee and proceeded to insult them with her lack of knowledge… A resident told this writer that Marjorie Evans did not know Comm. Stuart Dodd was the Chair of the CIC and I was the Vice Chair even though her husband sat on the board as our secretary in 2007!…Marjorie Evans, I am told claimed she will put a stop to blogs if she is elected …Hmmm…Joe Couriel will throw people out without a  warning and Marjorie  Evans will stop freedom of speech…Change on the dais in 2010?…Yeah right!… It is said all three are blaming all was out of control on the dais over the last 2 years due to  McIntee and Mayor Minnet’s not being able to control him… That’s priceless!…Jim Silverstone happily assisted McIntee in every bad act …they were joined at the hip!… We are told that Commissioner Jim Silverstone is boycotting a business along with the Furths, and while his Fiancee’ has sent an e-mail countering the “word going around town” as untrue… Many are quick to say otherwise …But this writer also recalls the same Fiancee’ was said to tell Jim’s opponents she did not know if he was going to run…and on that very same day…Commissioner Jim “He’s not a nice guy” Silverstone went in to  Town to do just that on day one of qualifying!…OOPS!………My response at the time  on whether his Fiancee’ lied…I said it is possible she did not know…but it was guaranteed Marc and Crisitie Furth sure did!…. We hear Jim’s “unfinished” business is to continue as the McIntee “heir” apparent…To have Town Manager Colon’s back for 4 more years… 4 more years of running the Town as a “Town Manager form of government” even though it is not!…(Commissioner-manager form of government)…4 more years of giving the Town Manager the center seat and the position of Commissioner #6… 4 more years to assist the Town Manager, it is said, in quest to remove BSO police from LBTS as payback from some sort of BSO-Colon bad blood going years back when she was employed there……That could just be an after election surprise ala the $2 million dollar McIntee Public Safety Center that was Jim Silverstone’s agenda item on the agenda BEFORE the election in 2008!… The political ploy from the Furths- Silverstone-Couriel-( he was angry the LBTS Police were replaced )-Evans- Clottey-and Colon of being happy with the BSO Police  now that former BSO Chief Gooding has been replaced and claims of a willingness to listening to what the people want for public safety in 2011…..is just that, a ploy for winning an election…The real question is will enough voters fall for it again?…

The Furth campaign has violated the disclaimers in ads from the CIC in their paper…The Furth campaign has put out their Candidate’s signs without the proper label of “for”…The Furth campaign has placed ads without the proper political wording…The Furth campaign has purposely printed false voting records for the Mayor in their paper…The Furth campaign has bullied other businesses for being political with signs as Chamaber members when they have signs outside their business as Chamber members… The Furth Campaign has the wrong amount of donations listed on their CIC site…($500 rather than the 2008 campaign finance amount of $300)…. The candidate for Mayor Joe Couriel has not stepped down from his Vice Chair position more than a month into his campaign…This is a known conflict the Furths-CIC  are aware of per the McIntee-Dodd throwing under the bus (prev. post)…in 2008……The lack of the Furths following the rules and playing by them are their well known M.O…..to the many who have witnessed it first hand or been been on the receiving end… and there are many…believe me!…

For some reason this writer has become a focal point in this 2010 election from the dais, being called  “The Chief Blogger” by Furth led-Commissioner Clottey and Commissioner-Candidate Silverstone….and according to those who have contacted me….  in condominiums, door to door and events it continues when Silverstone-Couriel-Evans are campaigning ….Why?… There can only be one reason…This election there is someone  “The Chief Blogger”….calling the Furths out on how they campaign their candidates…and they do not like it!…

Why do I keep doing it…because as I have said so many times before over the last 2 years…I was hoodwinked 2 years ago…I was disappointed 2 years ago……I did not know there was another agenda in play 2 years ago……and I made it my business to try and do everything in my power to rectify what I helped create in the next election!…That election is here!…

In the M & Ms & Fs …there can be NO trust in 2010….not for me!….

more to come…….
