Here’s The Scoop…. THE CIC….ALL WOUND UP

ALL WOUND UP….

How awful is it when you need to wind your watch ….and instead ….of turning that watch stem ever so gently….careful to use precise …decisive…..even-handed turns….to make sure you receive the desired successful long term results…. that guarantees this watch will be running smoothly for a long time……to come….

You have at it…twisting the life out it… just wanting to get it over with…….. ending up with the screw breaking off….and it being over-wound………leaving it in separate pieces… in total disrepair…. the watch is now broken!…..

Sounds like the CIC is in need of a “watchmaker”….

BCbythesea….hears that a CIC board meeting took place……and new “rules and regulations” were the order of the day from the top down….

This was the first CIC board meeting to convene since the “knee-jerk” reaction to Commissioner -CIC member Stuart Dodd’s e-mail…asking for a “leave of absence”……that resulted in CIC board member #10…BTSTimes Editor John MacMillan’s….”Scorched Earth “edition…on 7/25/08….arriving hot on the heels of the 7/13/08…CIC “Tar & Feathering” of Dodd…with the CIC Chair Cristie Furth/ CIC Vice Chair Maureen McIntee/ Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee along with Editor and CIC board member #10 John MacMillan…….at his usual back of the room at the Surf and Yacht Club position…yelling “Traitor”…and telling Dodd to repay money used for his campaign….

For MacMillan to be calling for repayment of campaign donations was particularly amusing…seeing that the largest portion of monies paid out from the campaign by the CIC and candidates….went to the MacMillans and BTSTimes…. this writer is not aware of any donations coming to the candidates from either the BTSTimes or the MacMillans….HMMM……

This meeting took place just a few houses away from Commissioner Dodd…at the home of a longtime neighbor and a longtime friend….but it might as well been in another country…due to the ongoing rift…between the two neighbors…produced by the vindictiveness…perpetrated by some on the Executive CIC board….including CIC board member #10….MacMillan…

BCbythesea…let me preface this by saying…the man who they are trying to “drive out”….would only say at this time…quote…”no comment”…unquote….while he deals with a personal family tragedy…and needs time to collect his thoughts…to address this situation at the appropriate time….in the future….

The rest of the board members present at this meeting….I am told…. are following the new….”rules”….divulging absolutely no specifics…….not knowing that those who are insisting on such “rules” have already broken them themselves…with their “messengers”…giving false statements…of what transpired….again not the content of the meeting….just the actions of some board members…. leading to more of the same…that has brought this new CIC executive board to this very place!….

BCbythesea…a little history….as previously posted….Commissioner Dodd…was the Chair of the CIC last year…and this writer was the Vice Chair….with the exception of previously posted “interference” from the prior CIC Chair Jerry McIntee….at the start of our term…and the “deal” to get Dodd to step down…as he ran for commissioner…by the M & Ms…to “divide and conquer” the campaign committee…and control the election process….we had a relaxed…easy board…that required no “oaths of secrecy”….no “ultimatums” that would require board members to essentially tell the CIC Chair/Vice Chair…what they ( the Chairs) wanted to hear…….

Unfortunately one board member who was unable or unwilling to make such a promise…….due to a well-known “stubborn” character trait of total honesty… resulted in him having to endure outrage and ridicule…from some…rather than to offer up what he is not sure he would or could agree to…

New ” Parliamentary” procedures have been enacted…to this new way of doing the CIC’s board business….just as disturbing as the introduction of video taping the board meetings as well as the CIC meetings…and keeping detailed notes that rival any commission meeting…YIKES!…

Those board members…who are not in the M & Ms & Fs inner circle…must be reeling?….

What ever happened to common sense…common decency…working as a group of adults…democratically involving all who are volunteering their time for a common cause…..using the by-laws…that already exist…..following those rules…that seem to have worked quite well up until now from this organization’s inception?….

How is it possible…if true…that the CIC Chair Cristie Furth/ CIC Vice Chair Maureen McIntee/ Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee/ and BTSTimes Editor -CIC board member #10 John MacMillan….can continue on this path of changing the very “core” of the CIC by trying to get rid of one of the founding members…the gentleman who received the MOST votes from the CIC members to once again be on the CIC board at the last election….as this “purging” of the CIC continues?….

The 10th CIC board member….is he going to assume the seat that would be open…. if they succeed?….WOW!…

Many ask who is in charge of the M & Ms…which “M”…the answer ….NOW…. most agree…after all this latest manipulation …MACMILLAN……is the….. “M”……calling the shots!….

The “Scorched Earth Agenda” has now moved on…courtesy of MacMillan…from this writer…to Commissioner Dodd…to…..now his own longtime reporter… his “friend”……his BTSTimes “Person of the Year!”….

Just incredible this “agenda” …the M & Ms & Fs…must have….that they would do this at this time….for surely they must know what their long time…”friend”….is going through…to “kick him while he’s down”…SICK!….

A vote of “no confidence” should be called….by those who overwhelmingly voted for this gentleman…before the deed is done….

for if it comes to pass….and M & Ms & Fs succeed to… “DRIVE HIM OUT”…….

It is this writer’s opinion….

the CIC … we all joined…the CIC presented on the CIC dormant site….. its demise …..courtesy of CIC board member #10 …BTSTimes Editor MacMillan…previous post…….. www.lbtscic.com

will become the the CIC dormant organization….with a steady stream of CIC members exiting the door….

its demise will be courtesy of CIC board member #10…BTSTimes Editor John MacMillan….and the CIC Chair Cristie Furth/ CIC Vice Chair Maureen McInttee and Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee….

What a shame….

more to come
