Here’s The Scoop…SUCKER PUNCHED …YEP…

NO WONDER HE LOOKED LIKE THAT……

At the 9/12/08 Commission Meeting Vice Mayor McIntee told the President of the Chamber of commerce that the VFD would be donating $5000 dollars to the Chamber for Christmas By The Sea…as per their private meeting concerning the Chamber…its future and its funding……..previous post…scoops category….9/12/08 Comm. Meeting #5…..

In that scoop…this writer wrote that the VFD Battalion Chief looked like he had been sucker punched…holding his head in hands a few times…while VFD supporters who had donated monies to the VFD were miffed!….

This writer inquired about this and other VFD public information…and received a response from VFD Fire Chief Bob Perkins….including the following answer concerning the VFD donation pronounced by McIntee…

“*_Chamber of Commerce:_*

To our knowledge, no decision was made regarding donating money to the chamber of commerce. However, it was discussed and decided that, as the VFD as done for many years for the Town and the Marie White Christmas by the Sea, as this is planned to be part of the chambers event, we will gladly give manpower to install the tree and participate in anyway needed. There is a department meeting next month in which this is planned to be discussed further.

I would suggest you to contact Vice Mayor McIntee on statements made by him.”

BCbythesea….is not surprised that such a move would be made without the Fire Chief and/or the Battalion Chief’s knowledge …along with any proper possible vote required by the membership…due to the numerous times McIntee made promises to one party…only to have to double back…and brow-beat others to fulfill that solitary promise…as written about in “How The Sausage Was Made”…regarding promises of ads that were promised to MacMillan for the BTSTimes….

Guess the Town needs to cough up the difference…..

Some things never change!…..

more to come……..
