Let’s say you are the victim of bad management by the town or town manager. Let’s say that you want to raise a legitimate question about town policy and how it is affecting you. Let’s say that your neighbor is being treated better than you are by the town administration.
What can you do?
The answer is simple. You can’t do a thing. Nada, Zilch. Not only that, but your complaints about the situation make, you an enemy of the town and the Council and the management. Negative comments are not allowed in White Springs.
Not only that but if you question the town about a Florida or Federal Law that you feel the Council breaks with impunity you’re are out of luck. The Council doesn’t care if they break a State or Federal Law, they really don’t.
And who is responsible for this situation? Why the answer is you are. Little Bitty old you are for having elected Willie in the first place. Willie has voted with Rhett, voting as Rhett would have him vote, every time. That’s over a thousand votes that Willie has answered to Rhett, “I don’t know if you are right but since I lack the ability to think for myself I’ll trust you.”
Not once, not twice not on the big issues and not on the minor issues but on all issues. Willie is an Uncle Tom to Rhett’s master of the Plantation.
What’s the matter? Can’t Willie think for himself? No he cannot. He looks over to Rhett when a vote is to be taken. If Rhett pulls on his ear Willie votes yes. If Rhett touches his nose Willie votes no. This folks is true democracy in action.
And Tonja is not as smart as Willie, how that is possible I’m unclear about it but Tonja votes as Willie votes, in all cases and at all times. Over a thousand votes. The three of them vote in lockstep no matter what the issue is on how good or bad it is for the town. If Rhett wants it the nose gets touched. If Rhett is opposed the ear gets pulled.
It matters not what law is broken, It matters not what Constitutional provision is ignored. Rhett has a monopoly of ONE because Willie and his side kick Tonja can’t think for themselves. How dumb can two council members be? Pretty damn dumb is the answer. And Rhett rides that horse at all times and for all reasons.
Let’s take an example that has nothing to do with me. At the recent May Day celebration some people were unhappy with the support the May Day committee got from the town.
Time to vote. Rhett’s ear got pulled and Willie voted to not hear the complaint regardless of whether it was signed by 1 person or a 100. Lots of reasons were offered but the vote taken was the end of May Day celebrations in the town. We’ll never attract a crowd the size that we’ve had in past years. Willie and Tonja (waiting to see how Willie votes) are the reason. Two Black Council members are working against the Black Community. And we vote them in every time.
If Willie went blind then the town would cease to function.
Shame on us. OH YES, IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE COME TO A COUNCIL MEETING AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. ALSO WHEN RHETT TURNS BEET RED IN THE FACE YOU KNOW THAT HE IS LYING. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS THAT. Ear pull or nose touch and then Beet Red as he tells a lie to support his position.
