ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER …..

DISTRICT 1 CANDIDATE SCOT SASSER’S MOTHER…3/7/10….

Dear Readers … One day from now we will all know who the voters decided could lead us for the next 2-4 years in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea…Yesterday, once again the Town’s corners were full with supporters for Minnet/Sasser/Vincent… and except for a few students from Cardinal Gibbons receiving Community Service points for standing with a political sign…. the outside of town limits, paid help for Silverstone/Evans/Couriel was nowhere in sight…Hmmmm…

What was happening shows just why voters have to get it right on Tuesday when they fill in that second “bubble” on the ballot…The Furth-CIC  members walked around to the supporters of homes of Minnet/Sasser/Vincent with a “Goody Bag”…In it was a CIC gaggle of “gifts”…to try and sway their votes…HA!… Come on!… Too funny…. except for where some of them were placed…OOPS!…

Hi Barbara It is now 12:45 March 7, 2010. I just returned from outside where I found all sorts of election material in MY MAILBOX. I thought it was illegal to place election material in the mail box, but you could place material near the mailbox. Please advise because I am very annoyed. I live at xxxx Poinciana St. LBTS 33308 Thanks xxxx. By the way this was paid for and approved by the Citizens Initiative Committee,not endorsed by any candidate.

…………………………

Here’s what was in one of the bags passed out today…Will supporters change their position on the candidates for plastic bags containing the last flier they received in the mail ……

“THEY MUST WALK THE WALK”…”COURIEL-EVANS-& SILVERSTONE HAVE WALKED THE WALK”… states the flier…..This writer agrees!…

That the Furths chose to use this old adage to describe their candidates….YIKES!… “As you may recall”… McIntee’s infamous statement in December ….that brought forth the “Quack, Quack” post!….(Bye, Bye, Bye…post)…

“IF  YOU WALK LIKE A DUCK, IF YOU WADDLE LIKE A DUCK, YOU GOTTA BE A DUCK” Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee 12/8/09 … (prev. post LBTS Agendas/Meetings cat. 12/11/09)..

Also included was the cheap minty green pen …a pseudo-ballot that wrongly displays the real ballot (using arrows  and check marks- no correct verbage/ “bubbles”!)…posted notes that read Re-elect Jim Silverstone Your Town Commissioner…(Note to self…vote for the other guy!)…Jim’s candidate business card…

And the best “gift”…..Jim”He’s not a nice guy” Silverstone’s red plastic band-aid holder that read “Re-Elect Jim Silverstone”…the one with the single band-aid in it that says “SWIFT”…(Couldn’t make it up any better”…It’s “Swift” alright!… We had some pretty funny quips from the “goody bag”recipients … …

Here’s a few… JIM SILVERSTONE BAND-AID JOKES…

“HE IS STUCK ON MCINTEE AND MCINTEE STUCK ON HIM!”

“LBTS YOU CAN’T PUT A BAND-AID ON THE PROBLEMS!”

“HOW MANY BAND-AIDS DOES IT TAKE TO STOP THE FLOODS!”

“TOO MANY SILVERSTONE BOO BOOS AND NOT ENOUGH BAND-AIDS TO COVER THEM UP!”

Readers are invited to add some more just send them in…

Also was a postcard that appears to be one for the Florida Elections Commission to get a complaint filed on… It is of the LBTS “REEF”…stating “Joe, Jim & Marjorie support the reef project”…. on the back it stated “Please vote 3/9/2010 Joe Couriel for Mayor etc…below it states”Pd. Pol. adv. by Hannah Hempstead-no candidate approved”…BUT… it contains Jim Silvsertones scanned signature!… Ms. Hempstead has already given donations to the candidates according to their required donation reports..so did she keep within the $300 maximum allowed and this was a way to bypass that amount?….If the candidates did not approve it as it states… …why does it contain Jim Silverstone’s scanned signature and why it it in a candidate approved “goody bag”?… Ms. Hempstead..Yep, that Hannah Hempstead the one who sits behind her opposition to snoop and to videotape fellow residents inside Jarvis Hall (prev.post)…should have a lot of company inf front of the Fl. Elections Commission…if the last candidate reports do not show the big buck$ paid out by the CIC-Silverstone/Evans and Couriel for BTSTimes ads…multiple mailers…The BTSTimes mailed and candidate paid for election newspaper…Silverstone’s half page Sentinel Sunday ad (larger the Town’s Municipal Election ad, Sunday in the Sentinel Local section-on the back page with ads…Hmmm…you would think the Colon Administration was hoping for a small vote turnout, assisting by using the last possible day to get it printed!)… Evans had ads in the Pelican and Hi-Riser…also MIA in her reports… We have been informed by those in the know,that purposeful delays in reporting expenditures or contributions are also grounds for finding probable cause!…OUCH!… One more biggie…Mayoral Candidate Joe Couriel who NEVER stepped down as the CIC Vice Chair!….GULP!…

Perhaps, the “Goody bag” for those who support their opposition will be the Candidates and their Campaign Managers…along with certain supporters having to face the music in Tallahassee …..and this one requires no street closures!…

…………………………………….

Candidate Marjorie Evans showed this writer once again why I have no respect for her…When she is awake …(outside of commission meetings)…. Mrs. Evans showed me loud and clear today why she tied her apron strings to the Furths-Clottey-Silverstone and Couriel…She too is a nasty piece of work…(Is there a vaccine for this?)… I was standing in the median on A1A and Commercial yesterday waving the signs for Minnet/Sasser/Vincent when she did a u-turn and stopped where I was standing..she waved and I did not respond…She rolled down her window to say “Did you like reading about yourself in the paper?”…I did not respond..She said “so you’re a minority business?”… I finally responded knowing full well what she was spewing…In the BTSTimes election newspaper…fully paid for by Evans/Silverstone/Couriel….A “Staff Writer”…(Moe McIntee most likely aka  the “Truth Deflector”)…wrote “Minority Profits” …In it she made such erroneous and stupid statements…the kind that could only be made by someone who has limited information on me, my business ..and especially the federal government and how a company works when doing business with the government…I expected as much from the “Truth Deflector”…She is known for not seeing the forest through the trees when it comes to her “Deflector” work…BUT …. from Candidate Marjorie Evans…a WOMAN who runs a non-profit organization..who is running on her expertize for working with the federal government…YIKES!… I told Marjorie “Marjorie I own a business and it’s a woman owned business..YOU of all people should understand that!”… I also told Candidate Evans “If you figure out how to get money from the government without bidding for it…you let me know!”…(The article said I do not have to submit competitive bids, “just send away for federal money-no questions asked”)…She rolled up her window and drove away…

OOPS!… I quickly realized when she drove away…SHE does know how!…It’s what we have been told she does best according  her “handlers”……and her running mates……SHE gets money from the federal government $15 million per year!…(Taxpayer’s money!)…As a woman (minority) who heads up a federally funded non-profit organization and receives $150,000 a year!…My business has no such luck!…..There are no federal funds with no questions asked for hard working for profit businesses…man or woman!……Marjorie Evans long steeped in getting non-profit government money….with a cushy salary …. just doesn’t get it!… Do you want this woman to represent you?…

By the way Marjorie…can I sue the BTSTimes for a racial slur?…When they called my husband and I “A wealthy, white couple”?…Were they “profiling?”…OUCH!…

Only 48 hours more to insert foot in mouth…..

more to come….
