Here’s The Scoop……With The Stroke Of A Pen…No Excuses…The Lollipop Man…

WITH A STROKE OF A PEN……..NO MORE VFD-CONSTITUTION TO FOLLOW….WAS THAT THE PLAN?…

A comparison (previous post VFD category)…of the VFD 2000 contract  with the Town and the VFD 2008 contract  with the Town shows the following disturbing deleted clause…

5.9- Management and Administration of  Volunteer Fire Department…which included this….’The Volunteer Fire Department WILL ALSO BE ADMINISTERED BY POLICIES AND GUIDELINES AS OUTLINED IN THE FIRE DEPARTMENT CONSTITUTION. attached hereto as Exhibit “A”….(no reference in the 2008 to any “Management or Administration of the VFD)…..WOW!…

IT WAS A “SECRET” BALLOT…

Heard from a reader…. the news of the Vice Mayor becoming the new LBTS-VFD Deputy Chief …is being “explained”…code word for being condoned…by those who are either certifiably mad…have short memories…are ethically challenged or are just plain afraid of the guy….saying it was a secret ballot…SO WHAT?…

WHOAAAA…..

Somebody had to nominate the Vice Mayor…which should..have been graciously ( I know this word mixed with McIntee is one of those “never the twain shall meet”…scenarios) turned down by the man himself…showing good leadership…(another …”never the twain shall meet)… and keeping his promise when trying to get the VFD back…in the previous Commission…(3rd times a charm…in the “twain not meeting”)….of “stepping down” from a Officer/leadership position….and to once more defy the VFD’s own Constitution …there can be no “spin”…no “excuse”…no “explanation”…for his becoming the Deputy Chief….

In other words…it does not pass the “smell test”…this latest McIntee move stinks to high heaven…NO EXCUSES…

ANOTHER CASE OF VFD SOP CONDUCT UNBECOMING….FOR A MEMBER OR AN OFFICER….

12  Red Firetruck Lollipops, cherry

This writer had a call from a  town resident…they were contacted by a beach-goer who had an “encounter” with a VFD-ATV Beach Patrol member…he was handing out lollipops and stopped to give them an “earful”…in badmouthing a few residents of SRC…

When asked if one was Barbara Cole …they replied yes…and did not know who the VFD member was…that is ….until…they happened to catch the 1/13/09 Commission meeting to see it was none other than….the Vice Mayor…

Look …I can take whatever he dishes out…and usually when he pulls this stuff …(it’s nothing new)….around SRC…the people inform me… then tell me their thoughts about the source…with some less than flattering comments…that would  assuredly pull the rug out from under his grandiose ideas of his stature around these parts….but…on that ATV…he is a VFD member…representing the VFD…and therefore he is not to be “badmouthing” any of the VFD “customers”….the taxpayers that keep him riding that ATV…more of the same…bad conduct …coming from the “leadership” on down…the “VFD “chain of command”…which now “officially”  means the guy on the ATV himself…

LOLLIPOPS JUST CAN’T COVER UP ….. THE BAD TASTE….LEFT AFTER THE ENCOUNTER…

more to come….
