Here’s The Scoop … “WHO CAN YOU TRUST? WHO CAN YOU TRUST?” Vice Mayor McIntee Nov. 10, 2009

November 19, 2009 by Barbara

“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?….

The requirement to give the records is covered by State Statute 119 and punished by 119.10

*119.10 Violation of chapter; penalties.*–

(1) Any public officer who:

(a) Violates any provision of this chapter commits a noncriminal
infraction, punishable by fine not exceeding $500.

(b) Knowingly violates the provisions of s. 119.07(1) is subject to
suspension and removal or impeachment and, in addition, commits a
misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s.
775.083.

(2) Any person who willfully and knowingly violates:

(a) Any of the provisions of this chapter commits a misdemeanor of the
first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.

(b) Section 119.105 commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as
provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.

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”!

Here’s The Scoop …. GOT YOUR HEAD BURIED IN THE SAND ?

September 21, 2009 by Barbara

THEN YOU’RE VICE MAYOR MCINTEE’S KIND OF MARCH 2010 VOTER… NO “HATS” REQUIRED!….

Dear Readers…Vice Mayor McIntee and the Town Administration are just like the energizer bunny…they keep going and going and going…First they make resident Yann Brandt wait well beyond the state statute regarding “a reasonable amount of time” for producing requested materials from June to September for his Public Records Request (PRR) for the Vice Mayor’s e-mails…Then the Vice Mayor makes a PRR as Vice Mayor via the Town Manager via the Town Clerk  for 3 months of emails from his “opposing” Commissioners (Mayor Minnet/Comm Dodd) for their personal computer “town business related e-mails” to retaliate and be vindictive all the while knowing that he deleted his own “Town business related” e-mails from his own personal computer …all 3 1/2 years worth!……And then in his Commissioner Comments he does his “my AOL ate my e-mail” tale showing absolutely no remorse for his actions…NAH, not him!…He’s chomping at the bit and rubbing his hands together in anticipation for HIS coveted PRR e-mails……Arrogantly  contacting the Florida State’s Atty. to ensure he gets what he, himself did not turn over!….And when you think there is nothing more he can do…..he does!..Vice Mayor McIntee and this Colon- led Town administration are indeed continuing to act badly……Last week, the Town Clerk advised Mr Brandt that she, the Town Clerk will no longer take his PRR for e-mails from the Vice Mayor, informing him the requests are to go to the Vice Mayor directly, contrary to the Florida state public records laws…And now they have changed the Town website contact category…….stating  “Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee  No e-mail is available”!!!!…(personal or Town!)….The ONLY Town official or employee to not have an e-mail address!!!!!…. WOW!…….

We hear the deletions of his e-mails constitute a “WILLFUL FAILURE”…. punishable with up to 1 year in jail and up to $1000 per the LBTS Town Attorneys. The State Attorney and other top officials are now in receipt of the PRRs from Yann Brandt…including the Vice Mayor’s admission that he deleted 3 1/2 years of “Town business related” e-mails….

For the overwhelming voters in town who have their heads in the upright position….we will be watching and waiting to see if the State of Florida will follow through on the Vice Mayor’s bad deeds or once again choose to slap him on the hand as we witnessed with the Florida Elections Commission and Florida Ethics Commission over the past 3 1/2 years when they found a number of “probable cause” charges…and gave him and his BFF Commissioner Silverstone a pass…This time there simply can be no 3rd “slap of the wrist” and  no 3rd “go forth and don’t do it again! …This time elected LBTS official Jerry McIntee must be held accountable for “willful failure” in HIS mass deletion of HIS  public records!….

Here’s The Scoop …. Did You Get “THE” Phone Call Yet ?

September 18, 2009 by Barbara

HE DID WHAT??!!!!!………

Dear Readers ….Did any of you, your friends and your neighbors receive “THE” phone call yet from Mayor Minnet or Commissioner Dodd?…

Because Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee has “decided to turn the tables” according to the Mc-Furth Times Tidbits …after the Vice Mayor received a public records request (PRR)  from  resident Yann Brandt for e-mails (prev. post… concerning prior knowledge in the BSO Chief Scott Gooding termination …and to see if there was a conflict/ Sunshine Law violation as is his right as a constituent)…Vice Mayor McIntee decided to ask for 3 months of Town related business e-mails as Vice Mayor McIntee (not resident McIntee ) from Mayor Minnet and Comm. Dodd …for pure retaliation!… On top of that he revealed on the dais that he has deleted all of his Town business related e-mails from his personal e-mail account (his primary e-mail account) for the last 3 1/2 years!…It’s a clear violation of his “custodial” duties as an elected official under the Sunshine Laws!…. As previously posted the e-mails the Vice Mayor wants to see e-mails primarily between this writer and Comm. Dodd as stated in the Times (“There is a God!”)….. That’s quite interesting and amusing due to the FACT there is nothing there and quite sickening in the FACT that there can be and he knows full well, there can be absolutely no conflict of interest/Sunshine Law violations due to my not being on a board, or having a company that would come before the Commission presenting any conflict of interest…Nope the Vice Mayor is just plain nosey!… (Think Pinocchio nose-y!)

Now he has ramped it up and he contacted the Florida State’s Attorney to get the e-mails according to a call to Commissioner Dodd from the LBTS Town Attorney last week!….Can you believe it?…The Vice Mayor deleted all his e-mails and he still goes to the State Attorney for the e-mails from the Mayor and Commissioner Dodd!…WOW!….

We hear this week the Florida State Attorney knows what the Vice Mayor has done with his deleted e-mails!…”RE-turning the tables, Yes there is a God!”….

In the meantime…residents,taxpayers and more importantly VOTERS ….have been receiving phone calls from the Mayor and will be receiving phone calls from Commissioner Dodd to inform them that their e-mails will be among those turned over to the Vice Mayor (and his Gang)… and to assure them it is not of their [Mayor/ Comm. Dodd] doing ….it’s  the Vice Mayor’s!….And it’s because Mayor Minnet and Commissioner Dodd will need to comply and they did not break the law like the Vice Mayor did and delete them!…

For those whoof you who do get “THE” phone call, be prepared…It’s a given ….the Mc-Furth Gang will be reading your e-mail correspondence with your chosen elected official at the Furth Motel on El Mar Drive aka Town Hall East …So you can expect retaliation in many Mc-Furth Gang forms…and perhaps a little late night vandal call from those that “take the Mc-Tour” throughout the town each night…..fully refreshed after their daily “siestas”….

But more importantly  LBTS VOTERS….remember this…thanks to Vice Mayor McIntee ….you no longer have the freedom of using your e-mail to contact your chosen Commissioner without fear that your e-mails will be read by him and his Gang…….

Also remember that Vice Mayor McIntee…his BFF (best friends forever) Commissioner Silverstone and their Mc-Furth Gang want you to vote them back in for 4 more years…which will now mean 4 more years of no ability to e-mail your chosen LBTS Commissioner without that fear continuing…Do you really want that?… NAH!..

So when you get the “OTHER” phone call…from the CIC for their CIC- “Broom Boys” re-election… HANG UP!…. maybe they’ll get the message!
