Here’s The Scoop…DO AS I SAY…

SELF PROMOTING THE MCINTEE WAY..

On my way out the door yesterday to attend the 9/25/8…Budget/Commission meeting…I stopped by my condo’s mail room to get a Hi-Riser…

On top of the counter…a pile of the familiar looking official LBTS letterhead stationary …

(BCbythesea…written as it appears..capital/non-capitals…etc…are just as presented on the letter by the originator)

Thank You, Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee”

WOW!…

Arriving at Jarvis Hall…not one of his fellow Commissioners were informed or signed off on this!…

Why would it be a letter from the Town…and the Vice Mayor and not the VFD and the VFD Chief?…

At the break between the meetings…the fallout began…for all the times the Vice Mayor has gone after the others …Minnet and Dodd for not following protocol…he puts this out without their knowledge….their input….their consent…

The Manager did not know…she took it and walked around …showing it to the Town Clerk….all were surprised…all shaking their heads….walking in and out of the kitchen…

What it came down to…the Vice Mayor took the official Commissioner Town Stationary…had Nikki from Town Hall print them up…distributed them …and then “took the heat” afterwards….easy to take when the “heat” does not come from the “Detective” himself….

What ensued…the rules of what should have happened…what will…. going forth….requiring all Commissioners to see anything with their names on before it goes out…and they didn’t know this why?

Why it was Town Stationary…and signed by the Vice Mayor?….According to McIntee because the VFD is not “official” yet and the BSO would be all over them for distributing the numbers…HMMM…

As the Mayor informed him…the Commission approved the ATVs on the beach patrol on 9/12/08…

Seems a little pre- campaigning might be going on……Mayor perhaps….
