Here’s The Scoop…Local Papers…’Government Mantra’….

IT’S BENDER TIME…

Dear Readers this is the 9th in the ‘Wizard Of Pompano’ series…and all throughout the series this writer has offered a link to it and found dubious comparisons…in what we here in LBTS face …alongside our neighbor to the north…

In our case… a Town Manager who has made it a “practice”of hiring from within the administration…..bypassing the correct venues to enact  responses from the top notch applicants……(previous  posts..Scoop category)……We deserve to have these positions filled by fully capable personnel …. independently running their respective departments…..instead of being  micro-managed with less than steller results…….

The Vice Mayor’s “support of the troops” dais diatribe last month……sounds eerily like the support of Caroline Kennedy…for Senate….. undeserving and unqualified to do the job…..but “owed” in some way or another….

The fallout from this  Buffalo “cop-like” loyalty…has left us with months of no forward movement on the dais…lack of backup materials…timely follow-ups provided for agenda items …and behind the scenes sole decision making that seems to grow …enboldened with power providing a total disregard for the Commission…Board members…and taxpayers…. to maintain the sub-standard status quo….

The topper however…. was how this last year ended…the unnerving and suspect Pavilion surprise “makeover”….and the  Mc-group now fully supporting their “Mc-Vice Mayor”…alongside his Mc-Manager…and Mc-VFD Chief… in the unsavory act of ignoring public records requests…leading up to in- house plan and dais taunts of slowing…or even stopping the public’s right to know…all done under the “guise”…of saving the Town…the Administration…the contracted public safety providers from a “witch hunt”…and “divisive attacks”…..

In 2009…this Commission…needs to get it together…give direction to the Manager and get to the bottom of what has been happening ….independent of the Vice Mayor….Questions must be asked…answers must be forthcoming and complete……on hiring practices…..qualifications…..decision making…and public records requests…..

It is the right of every person…every publication to ask and receive it all in a reasonable amount of time…per  Florida State statutes

In 2009…anymore such thwarting of this should be taken to the State…..perhaps with the long list of those denied their requests…signing on together….to see that LBTS is working for the people…all the people….

more to come…

BENDER…FL. SENTRY…

PART IX…NOW WHAT?….
‘The mantra of government Of particular concern is that nobody in government is ever held responsible for not doing his or her job. In government, we just seem to float from incident to incident and we unfortunately have a weak political process (City Commission) that refuses to accept ultimate responsibility – or take serious corrective actions, when warranted.’
