“IN THE LONG RUN THE CITIZENS, THE WISE CITIZENS WILL SAY….”

sign(2)

“….who can you trust? Who can you trust?, I yield. “… Vice Mayor McIntee’s last words after another very long Commissioner comments on Nov. 10, 2009…

Dear Readers…it is only 4 months to the time the Vice Mayor/Deputy Chief will get his answer …Wise citizens will tell him loud and clear …We can NOT trust you!…

You can start with the comments he made at this meeting …and work backwards…way, way backwards………His Commissioner Comments began after he was informed by resident Yann Brandt at Public Comments that Mr. Brandt met and gave testimony to State Attorney David Shulson that morning…Mr Brandt arrived at this juncture after exhausting all  avenues available to him in dealing with the Vice Mayor, the Town and the Town Attorney in regard to a sitting first term commissioner now on record stating he deleted 3 & 1/2 years of town-business related e-mails… Mr Brandt’s first request was made for specific dates and concerned the termination of former BSO Chief Scott Gooding (prev. posts)…Mr Brandt made public records requests for subsequent e-mails also specific in content and dates…Those too were deleted by the Vice Mayor… After Mr Brandt described his meeting with State Attorney Shulson, Comm. Dodd in his Commissioner Comments informed the Vice Mayor and the residents he was directing the Town to return McIntee’s deposit for the e-mails the Vice Mayor requested through the Town Manager …..The Comm. and the Vice Mayor were at a standstill over the labor costs owed to Comm. Dodd…Comm. Dodd said he would now await a court order from the State Atty. before turning them over. He went on to tell the residents their e-mails were safe  for now……The residents in the hall applauded loudly… The Vice Mayor laughed in a cocky manner and said ” I’m certainly glad Commissioner Dodd feels his e-mails are his personal property and he’s not obligated to give them to anybody.”…Of course that would mean the same thing for me!”… He went on to speak of the many exchanges he had with the State Attorney Shulson saying he had met with him 4 or 5 times already …Can you trust McIntee  that State Attorney Shulson spoke negatively about a private citizen? Can you trust McIntee when he made it sound as if he has an “in” with State Attorney Shulson and would be stopping in to see him the following week, as if there was an open door policy for him to come around and shoot the breeze?…Can you  trust the Vice Mayor’s account that State Attorney  Shulson agreed “the whole key to any prosecution is intentional and willful. There has to be an intentional act and a willful act to violate the law. Not to do the action, but to violate the law. That’s the whole key here. “…Can you trust that McIntee went and consulted an attorney? Can you trust his statement…”and they said exactly what I’m telling you, you have to have an intentional, willful intent to violate the law? Can you trust McIntee when he says ” Now nobody in my position is going to willfully or intentionally violate the law?”… Can you trust that Vice Mayor McIntee, an elected official who is on record stating he attended Sunshine conferences and on record receiving his elected official handbook which includes public records custodial requirements to retain his e-mails… is on video at 3 hrs and 11 min. in…. stating  “I then delete them”… did not do it willfully or intentionally?… http://lbts.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=2&clip_id=251

Can you trust McIntee on anything? …

Take a look at the very definitions…..he is using to wiggle out of his actions…yet again…almost 4 years into his term on the dais….
“will·ful wil·ful (wĭl’fəl)
1. Said or done on purpose; deliberate. See synonyms at voluntary.
2. Obstinately bent on having one’s own way.
willfully will’ful·ly adv.
willfulness will’ful·ness n.

adjective
1. Done or said on purpose: deliberate, intended, intentional, purposeful, voluntary, witting. See purpose/purposelessness.
2. Done by one’s own choice: free, spontaneous, uncompelled, unforced, volitional, voluntary. See willing/unwilling.
3. Tenaciously unwilling to yield: bullheaded, dogged, hardheaded, headstrong, mulish, obstinate, pertinacious, perverse, pigheaded, stiff-necked, tenacious. See resist/yield.”

The very definition ….”willful and intentional intent”… IS  the very definition of Vice Mayor McIntee …. His 2 homesteaded properties in 2 states…..His probable cause found from the Florida Election Commission when he ran for commission in 2006 ….His  probable cause found from the Florida Ethics Commission ….. His ignoring the VFD By-laws  stating a  VFD officer may not be an elected official…. His written statement to the Florida Ethics board insisting as Deputy Chief he will do no purchasing  for the VFD and by his own dais admission & purchase receipts does just that …His disobeying VFD- SOPs when entering a home on a suicide call before the police and then not offering first responder aid as he is required to…… and now this…His deletion of all of his e-mails in the last year of his first (and last!) term as Commissioner…..Can you trust McIntee that it was was not “willful and intentional” when he did it  for a 2nd time and a 3rd in a span of weeks?….

Who can you trust? Who can you trust?…NOT Vice Mayor McIntee……

Not in this town for another 4 years…

To do so would be ……”Willful and Intentional”!
