Here’s The Scoop … LBTS 9/9/09 Commission Meeting #4… Run Forrest Run ….

Commissioner Silverstone’s September 9, 2009 Commissioner Comments…

Dear Readers … One recurring theme is found in all of Commissioner Silvertone’s Commissioner Comments…” I made a Promise to myself”…and the “lies” being told around town… In that vein we award Commissioner Silverstone with our  Forrest Gump Award for keeping the phonograph needle on his “record” stuck throughout his first term …. A look at his past comments will supply much of what we find in the following commentary made on 9/9/09…

NOTE…NO MISSPELLINGS…JUST JIMMY-BOY’S OWN …(ALWAYS FUN) VERBAGE…

Commissioner Silverstone- ” I made a promise to myself that I will take notes of everybody’s commissioner Comments” …(He meant PUBLIC comments)” and respond back to them…( so let’s get this straight Jimmy “promised himself that he will answer back any person (voter) who comes to the podium?… Did he think this one up all on his lonesome!)…”I think that’s the best way to um, I think to use the term the Mayor used, which I think is a great term PROVERSION OF LIES that tend to be out there”…( perhaps Jimmy meant..

CS- “Ah, I’ll start with Commissioner Kennedy. He was the first one up here ah, um, made comments saying the utility lines were buried . That’s not true. All the utility lines on A1A were buried on that side of town”….(Remember this comment about the former Commissioner public comments comes right after his BFF [best friends forever]Vice Mayor McIntee just went on the record in his comments to say he never e-mails and does not know how to e-mail…[prev post scoops cat.]… and Jimmy decides to call on Kennedy for telling an “untruth” in not clarifying the area of utility lines buries when he [Kennedy] was on the dais?…Run Forrest Run)..”A lot of issues he brought up had to do with the annexation agreement and so um, I’d like to make that clear. And somebody regarding what the um, Commissioner Clottey was regarding, speaking about pit bulls we do have an ordinance I think in place for mean and aggressive dogs”. …( He thinks?…Jimmy voted the ordinance in…Run Forrest Run)…”So again if there’s an issue out there like that please call BSO. Um, there, that’s how we get things done around here. Um, Mr Brown came up here um speaking about misinformation which I find extremely funny”….( Jimmy has repeatedly said there was a lot of “misinformation going around town …including in tonight’s ending comments…so apparently that only applies to those who are Jimmy-like-minded? (the Bubbas)….Run Forest Run)…”Um, he said said the lifetime, that the Town Manager has a lifetime contract per that contract she can be fired at will. Three votes up here and she’s gone….( 3 votes to fire the Town Manager…up there with the current “Gang” in place…equals a lifetime contract!…Run Forrest Run)….Does she have a, ah, um a years service?” ( He meant SEVERANCE)  “Yes. Look at other Town Manager contracts, it’s very similar….( Jimmy, the point is you are on record for 2 years saying the Manager received the SAME contract as the previous LBTS Town Manager Baldwin…which we no know was a LIE!… Bob Baldwin had no severance package…just unpaid hours, vacation and sick days!…You were either complicit in this contract that will cost the taxpayers $250,000 or you were derelict in your duty to your constituents…. comparing it to other Town Managers…does not change the facts…..Run Forrest RUN)…”And let’s put things into perspective here that I think is important. This Town is run as a Town Manager form of government”…. ( from the the 2009-2010 page 1…”CITY GOVERNMENT THE TOWN OPERATES UNDER A COMMISSION-MANAGER FORM OF GOVERNMENT. Policy making and legislative authority are vested in the town commission,which consists of a mayor,a vice-mayor and three commissioners.The Town Commission is responsible for passing ordinances and amending the annual budget, approving large purchases, adopting resolutions and appointing the Town Manager, the Town Attorney and various boards and advisory groups. The Town Manager is the Chief Administrative Officer of the Town and is responsible for carrying out policies and ordinances of the Commission, directing all Town employees, preparing and submitting the annual budget and overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Town….which means the Commission is above the Town Manager and the Town Attorney…DIRECTING her to make or change policies …Do voters really want to re-elect a Commissioner that after 3 1/2 years still does not know the Town’s form of government?…Run Forrest RUN)…”We hire a professional Town Manager to run the day to day APPARATIONS of this town”……

( Definitions of apparition on the Web:

CS- ” Obviously some people aren’t happy with the way things are going here but if you look at the numbers, if you look at where we are, if you look at the town. I’ve been living here for quite a long time and I see an difference in all the areas of town and I just, you know have that ENTRENSIC LOOK of how things are going out there and ah, I see, I see a positive difference.”…
( The word is “Intrinsic”…the meaning…for Jimmy’s use ?????…Run Forrest RUN….
Definitions of intrinsic on the Web:

* belonging to a thing by its very nature; “form was treated as something intrinsic, as the very essence of the thing”- John Dewey
* situated within or belonging solely to the organ or body part on which it acts; “intrinsic muscles”

CS- ” The amount of money she makes (laughing with that “smirkin’smile”) compared to the Governor, I think that’s a cheap shot “($160,000+ for a 2 1/2 mile town with 5852 residents…pg. 1 2009-2010 Budget…anything but “cheap”)…” I think a lot of people make a lot more than the Governor does. Um, the got a lot of notes here,” (fumbling with his papers) “well it was basically transparency that’s been put up time and time again without transparency. You have to remember we made some amazing changes with that. All of our meetings are videotaped right now”…. (videotaping the meetings began prior to Commissioner Silvertone’s term)…”That’s one of the things I pushed for all the, all the meetings are on the, on the ah, ah, online right now.” (online Granicus began in 2007 with the Town Manager promising it would take away the need for an asst. Town Clerk…Hmmmm) “The budgets are online right now “( the 2009-10 budget was taken off and put back on per this writer’s e-mail that it was taken off and a request for the “justification” pages to be included was ignored …subsequently I scanned them onto http://heresthescooponline.com/ ) “The core of the information, the information where it starts, where it ends up is out there. “(HUH?…”ENTRENSIC”?)” Everything else is subjective (Isn’t all information no matter where it comes from subjective?) Everything else can be made up of opinions and so forth. But the core of the information is there for everybody to look at. So if we’re talking about transparency we have never been as transparent as we are now. That’s clear to me. I put something in the last edition of By The Sea Times in my Commissioner Comments. I put a challenge out there for anybody if you have any questions about and I think the Mayor also did that too , if you have any questions about anything you hear out there to please contact me. I got two REQUESTS (He meant responses) “one e-mail” (was the Vice Mayor Cc’d?) “and one verbal and that was it.” ( perhaps, it’s because nobody reads that paper? ) “And I find it hard to believe when I look out here every commission meeting that the public comments, when very little of it has to do with Town business, that’s what we’re here for and more of a personal and political attacks. Um, again if you have any issues any questions and I would suggest doing it before the workshops so we can start working on that. That’s our job up here. And when it does happen I, you’d be surprised at the resolutions you will get um, things get done that way. But I guess some people just like listening to themselves more than anything else.” ( Jimmy-Boy,  please,please use all the above for your re-election stump speeches……Run Forrest RUN)…

CS- ” With that being said though,the budget is again coming up the, the schedule for it is on the Town’s web page. Please take a look at it. That’s ah, one of the major jobs we have up here is spending your tax dollars and you have to get involved .”…( Unless “YOU” are….”INFILTRATORS”…promoting “PROVERSIONS OF LIES”./The “2-Hats-Broom Boys” spending your tax dollars…Hmmm… voters must remember…the Town Manager “lifetime” contract…2+ million dollar motel…4% increase for VFD which has the same # of members it had on a budget of half that amount prior to their dismissal…health insurance for commissioners…cell phones for commissioners…new trucks for the town…plans for a $3 million dollar firehouse…fees…fees…and more fees)…

RUN FORREST RUN….There’s a shrimp boat waiting for you and your pal …. it arrives in March 2010….

more to come….
