Here’s The Scoop … THE WRATH OF “AUNT BEA” …

THE TOWN MANAGER AND COMMISSIONER CLOTTEY HAVE GONE AND DONE IT ….

THE RECREATION AND SENIOR CENTER OUT  FOR BIDS  …. OCT.20, 2009 2 pm….TO BE “READ OUT LOUD”

Dear Readers in today’s Sentinel…the “Invitation To Bid” …We hear seniors are reeling from this action taken…One resident sent Commissioner Clottey  an e-mail..and received  a response …Here is her “explanation”of her role in this fiasco…

…………………………………………………….

Comm. Clottey…

“This Commission has put out a lot of items out for bid or RFP. Some like the parking citation service are rather small items. All I did was ask that this same procedure be followed for the service provider of senior center.
If the current provider submits the best RFP package in terms of promised service and price, that will be great. Even if it is not as good as a competitors, he would get the contract because he is a known and liked.

I have no idea if anyone else wants to provide this service but I owe it to the residents of LBTS to find out. There many be someone who wants to provide our seniors with a lot more programs for the same or lower price. The only way to find out is to put out a RFP. I owe this to our seniors and taxpayers.”

……………………………………………………………….

Again, I deeply regret the role I played in helping in the election of Comm. Clottey, the woman I backed and worked with was not this “clueless”…This “BID” should never have been done….It was not on the RFP list…It was not brought to the FULL Commission for discussion and/or action…it is nothing like the Parking Citation RFP…For Comm. Clottey to say “If the current provider submits the best RFP package in terms of promised service and price, that will be great. Even if it is not as good as a competitors, he would get the contract because he is a known and liked.”… WOW!…Why in the world would she cause this man such hardship, not knowing if he had a job after 9 years…and cause the uproar and wrath of her constituents …only to say even if his price is not as good “HE WOULD GET THE CONTRACT BECAUSE HE IS KNOWN AND WELL LIKED”?…..Why put everyone through this “exercise”?…Why cost the Town in staff time and advertising?…Why not have taken the time to find that out BEFORE?…

Step down Commissioner..after 2 years…step down!…
