Here’s The Scoop … 20 Months Later … Screw You …

EACH TAKING A TURN… (pun intended)…

Dear Readers… at the October 27th, 2009 Commission Meeting Clueless Clottey put on the agenda New Business item 16 d. “Discussion and/or action- Hillsboro Inlet (Commissioner Clottey)…She was following up on a previous commissioner comment made by Vice Mayor McIntee after Comm. Dodd offered up his ethics referendum ….In his remarks McIntee said Comm. Dodd received a “benefit” from his appointment on the Hillboro Inlet…and therefore he should not be allowed to vote on anything that has to do with it…( Dodd would recuse himself and said so) ….McIntee’s insinuation was Dodd was paid for his service…Quite a hoot coming from McIntee……and quite a “let’s screw Dodd” from both McIntee and Clottey….some 20 months after appointing newly elected Commissioner Dodd into that Hillsboro Inlet appointment…

On Feb 19, 2008 under New Business item 14b. McIntee made a motion to direct the Town Manager to send a letter removing former Mayor Oliver Parker from the Hillsboro Inlet board…He went on to say “I would also like that motion to read Mr. Stuart Dodd our new commissioner is appointed that commission, I think there is nobody more qualified than Mr. Dodd. He sailed around the world twice without an engine (applause in the hall) and he ah, knows the ah, all the ins and outs of sailing boats and I can prove this cause I’ve been on boats with him and he’s yelling yardam and forearm and I said what the heck are you talkin’ about! But he certainly would be a representative that ah, would do a great job for us. “…The Vice Mayor went on to chastise the former Mayor for never saying a word about the inlet in the time McIntee was up there as commissioner..He said he hoped Comm. Dodd would do so from time to time (Comm. Dodd has fulfilled that request) ..

McIntee said :”That’s my motion”…

Commissioner Clottey “I’ll second it.”…

The Mayor asked for a description of the position being made for the residents along with any benefits…

Vice Mayor McIntee-” For the record Mr. Mayor (OOPS!), ah, THERE IS ONE BENEFIT, MEDICAL INSURANCE. I have contacted the director of the Hillsboro OUTLET (OOPS!), the chairman. He said the only benefit they receive is medical insurance for each member. What it entails is making sure that the barges and I believe there are one or two of them are run properly. Sands removed properly and Hillsboro inlet never closes up the sand jams. But I don’t think anybody knows more about boats than Commissioner Dodd. So what he doesn’t know about the Hillsboro Inlet, they better be careful cause he’ll know it all in a month!” There was some input by Commissioner Silverstone who acknowledged a previous longtime (we hear 20 years) Hillsboro Inlet board member in the hall for the Mayor to ask questions of…The Mayor felt satisfied with the Vice Mayor’s answers (remember after all,  it was their 1st full meeting after taking office, thus she was satisfied, she has since learned not to be!)…and a vote was taken…

Commissioner Dodd asked if he should vote and was allowed to do so…5-0 Commissioner Dodd was appointed to the Hillsboro Inlet…

If Commissioner Dodd is replaced or as Comm. Clottey said disingenuously using the 2nd Furth Town Hall East “talking point” of the week “rotating” the position ..(# 1 was” clarifying” the 33′ height in a  referendum) …Commissioner Dodd will receive the same medical insurance benefits paid by the LBTS taxpayers as both Commissioner Clottey and Commissioner Silverstone!… Add to that the expense we incurred to have the Town Attorney check if a non- commission member can serve as the Hillsboro Inlet appointee, when a quick look at the same Feb.19, 2008 meeting they would have reheard Comm. Silverstone’s comments about the former town resident (and the CIC- Mc-Furth choice for new Hillsboro Inlet member?)…who was not a commissioner when he served!… If we go that route thanks to Clueless Clottey and the “Gang” the Hillsboro Inlet medical insurance benefit will go to a non-elected town official leaving the LBTS taxpayers paying for all 3 commissioners instead of 2!.. Thanks a lot!…$$$$$$$……

This move by Clottey, McIntee and Silverstone is nothing but payback toward Comm. Dodd .. Shame on her, shame on them!…

Just add it on to the long, long, long  list of reasons to replace the Mc-Furth majority on the dais!…
