THE FRAUD TONJA BROWN.

This article is in response to Tanja Brown’s questioning my honor and integrity, and for calling me, repeatedly, a bad man to the voters. It goes like this. Don’t vote for Nikki Williams because she is supported by the “Bad Man” Joe Griffin.

All this comes from a “citizen” and I use the word loosely, who never ever has done anything in her life. Did she try to excel in High School in order to get into any college? No she did not. Did she go to college and worked at a job every day she was in college in order to pay for tuition and room and board? No she did not. Did she join a military service and fight the good fight in South East Asia for five years? No she did not. Did she become a Public Affairs officer, the infamous Service Spokesman, an honor granted to one of only 30 applicants for the position? No she did not. Did she fly air cover at the 1984 Olympic Games in LA. No she did not. Did she become salesman of the year for a major Insurance firm in Fresno, California? No she did not. Did she attend, again at his own costs, a Major Seminary in order to become more knowledgeable about the Christian Religion? No she did not. And perhaps most important has she tried to open up the government of White Springs, to make it more lawful and transparent to the people? She decidedly did not. And did she try to rally the troops to fight the unjustified high sewer and water bills imposed upon town citizens by the corrupt town council? NO she fought FOR the high sewer and water bills.

Did she do anything in her life but draw a welfare check? No she did not!!! Did she START the HOPE program or be involved in May Day or the Habitat for Humanity? No she did and is not.

I say she isn’t worthy enough to carry my fecal material in a sock yet she decries me as being a BAD Man. Shame on her. We’ll see next election when she comes up again. We will flood the opposing candidates with money in order to defeat her and keep her from getting her 30 pieces of Silver that she gets for shoving her nose not for the people but for the old and new mayor.

Of course you could always ask her about the Federal Civil Rights suit. I suspect she is so uneducated that she is so uneducated that she doesn’t even know it is in Federal Court and that the town is going to lose. What does she care? She doesn’t as long as she gets her 30 pieces of silver once a month.

I’m calling her out. She is a fraud and a waste of space. She is a house servant to the power structure of the Town of White Springs. While the rest of us labor in the fields she sits on her behind in the mansion house and does little to support the field hands.

She wants to call me a BAD MAN then see how she likes this post. She started this but I assure you I will finish it, PERHAPS IN FEDERAL COURT.

GOT THE FOLLOWING FLYER IN THE MAIL TODAY.

Rhett Flyer – CLICK ON LINK TO SEE FLYER.

I COULDN’T PASS UP THIS OPPORTUNITY TO DEBUNK THE FLYER.

Rhett says that when we elected him as a town council member in 2013 that he would always put the citizens first and that he would continue to do so if re-elected. I say that is pure unadulterated hooey.

The “DECISIONS” he makes for the town are the Mayor’s decisions in that he votes her way in excess of 99% of the time. He is hardly an independent voice for the people but instead is a lap dog for Helen and her corruption.

He cites three proof sources for his “putting the people first”. They are :

Opposed drastic water and sewer increase in 2013. Yet when the Mayor needed his vote to approve the increase he approved the budget without a whimper. Hardly a voice for the people.. His proof source for this statement is apparently contained in all of the minutes of 2013 since he fails to cite a month when this attack of humility struck him.

Reduced your water and sewer bill $5.00 whole dollars a month. This for Rhett is what your vote is worth, $5.00 per month. I say your vote, when HE RAISED the sewer bills 250%, is worth more than $5.00 per month. Again his proof source are the council minutes for the year 2014. No month was given to check out his statement.

Opposed the effort to close SHE. So what, everyone did. But none, other than Rhett, were in the unique position of Attorney for the Mayor’s Charter School project. He BLEW that assignment in spades. He could have assured that we got the Charter school instead of blowing smoke up the Mayor’s rear end. If he had been paid, he could have been brought up on charges of unethical behavior. Again his proof source is lacking a date. He is afraid to have you check into his record.

AND SPEAKING OF RECORDS…. WHERE IS HIS PLATFORM? What will he do, what can we the citizens count on him to do, if we re-elect him? We just don’t know. All of the fancy phone calls and mailings fail to mention anything about his wants and desires for White Springs citizens. What can we count on him to do? Apparently nothing of significance.

NOW HERE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS HE DID DO !!!

HE IGNORED OVER 40 CITIZEN COMPLAINTS OVER HIS TWO YEARS ON THE COUNCIL. What that means is that Rhett doesn’t believe in a citizens right to redress his government for grievances. HE DOESN’T BELIEVE IN THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right to assemble, Freedom of Religion and the right to redress the government mean NOTHING to Rhett.

He allowed the town to violate Citizen’s Civil Rights then keeps the fact from the citizens. The openness of the legal process means nothing to this haphazard servant of the people. Why can’t the citizens know what the Mayor and the Chief of Police did to violate a citizen’s civil rights. But Rhett would rather keep that information in the darkness so that he doesn’t have to be responsible.

He approved two budgets that allow the town to be in utter financial distress. BUT most important is that he allows the town to STEAL sewer and water money to pay for general services. The Florida Public Service Commission doesn’t allow such foolishness for its big utilities like Florida Power and Light, yet Rhett does allow it in White Springs. Just so we are clear, here at the rates charged by surrounding towns for sewer and water.

Jennings …….. $28.47
Jasper……………$24.71
Jacksonville…..$27.96
White Springs $78.65
4000 GALLONS PER MONTH

And it is all Rhett’s fault.

He doesn’t believe in the Florida Sunshine Law, the Florida Public Records Law or the right of citizens to be able to understand the thinking of its public officials on matters of public concern. You can’t get information out of the town or any Council Person because Rhett says so.

But what’s worse and I mentioned it earlier is that in more than 99% of the Council votes he voted exactly like the Mayor. He’d follow her into the “Gates of Hell” if she lead him there.

I say Dump the Dude. He has taken his outstanding education and done nothing with it for the citizen’s of White Springs.

I say vote once for Nikki Williams. Let your other vote be an unused vote to end corruption.

DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY…

Originally published April 26th 2015

Several people today have told me that I was a little TOO HARSH on Rhett Bullard. Maybe so. But has he treated me with respect? Has he come by my house and asked what he could do to make things better? Has he quit voting with the Mayor on ALL votes taken? None of these are true in the time he has been on the council. We need a proactive town council and members and Rhett has done nothing except vote with Helen on everything.

Has he sought to find a solution to the Federal Civil Rights suit? No he has not. My concerns should be the Council’s concerns but Rhett has done NOTHING that I can see to voice those concerns. 119 Requests are still going unanswered. Koberlein is still milking the town for all of the money he can get and the Town is still operating in the darkness of too many issues, including the Federal Civil Rights suit.

As an attorney Rhett should be making sure we do the MAXIMUM for COMPLIANCE with the Sunshine and Ethics Laws. Instead he and his cohorts are doing nothing, or the bare minimum, to Open Up the government of White Springs to the people.

TOO HARD ON RHETT??? WHAT HAS HE DONE FOR THE CITIZENS? EVEN HIS FLYER SAID NOT MUCH.  I DON’T THINK I’VE BEEN TO HARD ON HIM, TANJA OR WILLY. YOU EXPECT WALLY AND HELEN TO BE CORRUPT, THAT IS ALL THEY KNOW HOW TO DO. BUT RHETT AND TANJA AND “STIFLE IT” WILLY SHOULD DO BETTER.

Cast ONE VOTE I say for Nikki. Use your second vote as a protest against the corruption (special strokes for special folks) that is White Springs government.

RHETT RUNS AFOUL OF THE LAW AGAIN…

He had to disclose his conflict of interest with the Marijuana initiative for White Springs. Here is the law that Rhett has purposely overlooked.

(3)(a) No county, municipal, or other local public officer shall vote in an official capacity upon any measure which would inure to his or her special private gain or loss; which he or she knows would inure to the special private gain or loss of any principal by whom he or she is retained or to the parent organization or subsidiary of a corporate principal by which he or she is retained, other than an agency as defined in s. 112.312(2); or which he or she knows would inure to the special private gain or loss of a relative or business associate of the public officer. Such public officer shall, prior to the vote being taken, publicly state to the assembly the nature of the officer’s interest in the matter from which he or she is abstaining from voting and, within 15 days after the vote occurs, disclose the nature of his or her interest as a public record in a memorandum filed with the person responsible for recording the minutes of the meeting, who shall incorporate the memorandum in the minutes

ETHICS COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA SAY’S STACY’S BREAKING OF HER CONTRACT IS THE COUNCIL’S MESS TO CLEAN UP.

It may not be an Ethics Complaint but it certainly is, by the Ethics Commission, a violation of Local Good Government. Let us re-read the finding again with my comments in Red.

  1. Here, even accepting as valid the allegation that the Town Manager was not abiding by the terms of her employment contract, (WHICH SHE WASN’T) and even accepting that the Respondent was aware of her actions, (WHICH RHETT WAS) the complaint still does not substantively indicate any private capacity nexus (RHETT KNOWINGLY AND WILLFULLY ALLOWED HER TO BREAK HER CONTRACT.)_ between the Respondent and the Town Manager, as would be supportive of the “corruption” required under the statute. (SPECIAL STROKES FOR SPECIAL FOLKS) Moreover, even assuming in argument that the complaint indicates possible violation of Section 112.313(6), Florida Statutes, nevertheless, under the Rudd Amendment, we find that the public interest would not be served by our proceeding further. We decline to proceed further because the

    allegations of the complaint concern internal managerial employment issues of the Town better suited to be addressed by the Town Council or forums other than the Commission on Ethics.

PERHAPS THE COUNTY COURT?

IN OTHER WORDS IT IS THE TOWN COUNCIL’S OBLIGATION TO ADDRESS THESE CONCERNS, ACCORDING TO THE ETHICS COMMISSION. WILL THEY? DOUBTFUL.

THE PATTERN NEVER CHANGES UNTIL THE RAT DIES….

MY APOLOGIES TO SIMON AND GARFUNKLE.

For those of us who have an interest in White Spring politics and good, clean, open government in White Springs it is never too early to think about the upcoming election season in March and April 2017.

This cycle Rhett Bullard, our Mayor, and Tanja Brown, our lazy do nothing for the Black community Council member are on the ballot.

If we can vote out Tanja that would mean Rhett would no longer be Mayor, oh happy days. If we vote out Rhett then obviously he could no longer be Mayor but it also means that Willie Jefferson, the corrupt Deputy Sheriff, and Tanja Brown wouldn’t know what to do. Neither one of them can think for themselves, you understand.

But the Mother Lode of election results would be to vote out Rhett and Tanja. I don’t know who is running against them, have heard rumors but I don’t know. But whomever it is couldn’t be any worse than Rhett Tanja and Willie.

Why you ask? I tell you.  Without the “Three musketeers” to protect them Pam would be gone. Stacy would be gone. Pam especially is the biggest impediment to good clean open honest government in White Springs. She has, as a friend of mine said, “Outlived her shelf life” She certainly is old and stale.

This I know for certain. I will bring everything, every asset I can muster to defeat both of these, in my opinion, worthless self-serving, self-aggrandizement individuals. We need new, not worthless old, leadership. Pam has got to go.  However we get that accomplished will be a fine election.

DON’T VOTE FOR RHETT AND TANJA…..

 

NEW LAWSUIT FOR COUNTY COURT

IN AND FOR HAMILTON COUNTY FLORIDA

CIVIL DIVISION

 

JOE GRIFFIN                                    )                   CASE NO:

                     Plaintiff                           )

  1. )

TOWN OF WHITE SPRINGS         )

                     Defendant                       )

_____________________________

COMPLAINT

The Plaintiff JOE GRIFFIN (GRIFFIN) pro se files this action against the TOWN OF WHITE SPRINGS, FLORIDA (TOWN), a municipal corporation, and alleges as follows:

NATURE OF CLAIM

  1. This is an action to have the TOWN to receive instructions from this Honorable Court to cease its behaviors of not complying with Federal, State, County and Municipal Statutes, Constitutional Provisions (State and Federal), Town Charter provisions and all other such rules and regulations that bind the TOWN to specific actions in furtherance of Open Government and Individual Rights and Liberties.

JURISDICTION AND VENUE

  1. Florida Statute 34.01 lists the County Courts as the Venue of cases that have to do with violations of Municipal and County Ordinances. This suit does that, highlights violations of Municipal Ordinances. The town charter is listed as a Municipal Ordinance, Title 2 of Municipal Ordinance 95-05 and 99-01. All violations listed are a violation of the Charter, a Municipal Ordinance or a Constitutional provision.
  2. The venue thus exists in this court for an action seeking to require enforcement of Municipal Ordinances as they relate to Open Government and Individual Rights and Liberties.
  3. Article 1 of Amendment One of the U.S. Constitution codifies a citizen’s right to REDRESS OF GRIENVANCES. The TOWN is bound by such a declaration at the local level and this court is a proper venue to enforce such a requirement on local government. Charter Provisions and the Formation Incorporation Articles filed with the State of Florida call for the Town to follow all State and Federal Laws and Constitutional provisions.
  4. Part 1 Section 24 of the Florida Constitution delineates the obligations of the TOWN relating to the requirement to open government up to inspection by citizens. The Town Charter (adopted by a municipal Ordinance) requires adherence to Open Government doctrines.
  5. The Town Charter of the TOWN and Articles of Incorporation require the TOWN to obey all state, Federal and County rules, Ordinances, Regulations and especially Constitutional and Charter Provisions that have to do with Open Government and Individual Rights.
  6. While this court is not a proper venue for Extraordinary Wits, this action is not a petition for either a Writ of Mandamus or a Writ of Injunction. This action simply is a request for this Honorable Court to Instruct the TOWN to follow the provisions of the Law so stated above and below.

PARTIES

  1. Plaintiff JOE GRIFFIN is a Citizen of the United States, the State of Florida, of Hamilton County and of the TOWN.
  2. Plaintiff has been a resident of each of these political entities for in excess of 17 years.
  3. Defendant TOWN OF WHITE SPRINGS is an incorporated municipality organized under State of Florida rules and is located in Hamilton County.
  4. Plaintiff is under a vexatious litigant restraint from the Appellate Court (Circuit Court in and for Hamilton County) in this case.

CONDITIONS PRECEDENT

  1. GRIFFIN filed with the TOWN TEN (10) Citizen Complaints during the last four months.
  2. Plaintiff is allowed to Petition his government for a redress of grievances per Amendment One of the U.S. Constitution.

FACTS

  1. The right to Petition a government for Grievances is delineated in Amendment One of the U.S. Constitution. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assembly, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

 

  1. The Town Charter of the TOWN clearly states that the TOWN is to operate under Robert’s Rules of Order.
  2. Roberts Rules of Order Article 8 Section 47 says:
  1. Votes that are Null and Void even if Unanimous. – No motion is in order that conflicts with the laws of the nation, or state, or with the assembly’s constitution or by-laws, and if such a motion is adopted, even by a unanimous vote, it is null and void.
    1. Town Charter Section 2 Procedures subsection 5 (a) (2) – Rules and Minutes. Roberts Rules of Order shall govern the procedure of meetings.
    2. Thus all votes or motions which violate or support the violation of a law, a constitutional provision or a Charter provision are null and void.
  • During Plaintiff GRIFFIN’S residence he has filed over 150 Citizen Complaints.

 

CLAIMS FOR RELIEF

  1. FIRST CLAIM FOR RELIEF

NO CITIZEN COMPLAINTS HANDLED OR INVESTIGATED IN THE LAST 4 MONTHS.

  1. The Town Charter of the TOWN allows in Section 2.04 for the Investigation of any complaint forwarded to the town by any party.
  2. Plaintiff has filed in excess of 150 Citizen Complaints in GRIFFIN’s 17 years in the town. NONE of the 150 plus complaints has been investigated or found to be in Probable Cause. In one case in 2003 the Town argued in court that they weren’t investigations at all but simply fact-finding evolutions. No fact finding evolutions have occurred in the last 13 plus years.
  3. In the last 3 months Plaintiff has filed 10 Citizen Complaints. They range from Perceived Violations of Hours worked provisions of town employees, Residency requirements for the Town Manager, Sunshine Meeting notice requirements for Town meetings, lack of enforcement of the Land Development Regulations and Florida Statute 119 requests just to name a few. The ten are attached to this filing as an enclosure.
  4. Plaintiff was not notified when some, but certainly not all, of the Complaints were handled on December 13, 2016, four months after they were presented.
  5. No investigations were even considered by the Town Council simply because the Town Council never sought to review the complaints. No Show Cause or Good Cause finding was ever made or even considered.
  6. On 29 November 2016 Plaintiff gave to the Town Council a verbal listing of the 10 Citizen Complaints but no response has been forthcoming.
  7. Despite receiving a “Council member’s briefing Packet” for the December 13, 2016 meeting Plaintiff did not receive notice that four of his citizen complaints were to be handled. Therefore Plaintiff didn’t show up for a meeting that had no subject that Plaintiff was interested in.

WHEREFORE, as due to the First request for Relief, Plaintiff asks that this court order Defendant TOWN review each of the 10 Citizen Complaints and do investigations on any and all that show a prima facie case for having some validity or probable cause. If no Probable cause or prima facie case is determined Robert’s Rules of Order, Count 2 below is violated.

Plaintiff requests NO (punitive or compensatory damages) compensation from Defendant Town other than cost of fees for filing and service. Plaintiff requests pro se attorney costs of $15.00 per hour for his time in researching, formulating and publishing this legal action.

SECOND REQUEST FOR RELIEF

NOT FOLLOWING ROBERT’S RULES OF ORDER WITH RESPECT TO CLAIMS IN ONE ABOVE.

  1. The dictates of Robert’s Rules of Order are clear, in that motions and votes to ignore state statutes, Constitutional or Charter Provisions or Municipal Ordinances are Null and Void.
  2. The requirement for reliance on Robert’s Rules of Order is clear in the Town Charter.
  3. The 10 plus public records requests and the 10 Citizen Complaints has each has used, as a proof source, either some Constitutional provision, State Statute or Municipal Charter, Case Law or Ordinance should be investigated upon showing of probable cause or a prima facie case. The adoption of any “no probable cause” finding by the Town Council is in direct opposition to Article 8 Section 47 of Roberts Rules of Order. Article 8 Section 47 is attached to this filing.

WHEREFORE, due to the second Complaint for relief, Griffin seeks that this court instruct TOWN abide by the provisions contained in Article 8 section 47 of Roberts Rules of Order and also Section 2 of the Town Charter with respect to Investigations. If no probable cause found in the Complaints that bring forth violations of any law, Charter provision or Municipal Ordinance then that finding of no Probable Cause is Null and Void. .Plaintiff requests NO compensation (punitive or compensatory damages) from Defendant Town other than cost of court fees for filing and service. Plaintiff requests pro se attorney costs of $15.00 per hour for his time in researching, formulating and publishing this legal action.

EXCERPT OF PRIOR POSTING…

  1. The allegations in Paragraphs 3 fail to indicate a possible violation of Section 112.313(6) by the Respondent.2 Here, even accepting as valid the allegation that the Town Manager was not abiding by the terms of her employment contract, and even accepting that the Respondent was aware of her actions, the complaint still does not substantively indicate any private capacity nexus between the Respondent and the Town Manager, as would be supportive of the “corruption” required under the statute. Moreover, even assuming in argument that the complaint indicates possible violation of Section 112.313(6), Florida Statutes, nevertheless, under the Rudd Amendment, we find that the public interest would not be served by our proceeding further. We decline to proceed further because the allegations of the complaint concern internal managerial employment issues of the Town better suited to be addressed by the Town Council or forums other than the Commission on Ethics.3

THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF ARTICLES. RHETT FOUND NOT RESPONSIBLE BY REASON OF AN AMMENDMENT TO THE ETHICS RULES.

HE WAS NOT FOUND TO HAVE NOT COMMITTED THE MISDEED BUT INSTEAD THE FLORIDA ETHICS COMMISSION FOUND THAT LOCAL MISDEEDS WERE NOT IN THEIR PURVIEW. Anyway here is the finding.

PUBLIC REPORT AND ORDER DISMISSING COMPLAINT UNDER THE RUDD AMENDMENT

 

On Friday, December 9, 2016, the Commission on Ethics met in executive session and considered this complaint for dismissal under Section 112.324(12), Florida Statutes (“the Rudd Amendment”). 1 The Commission’s review was limited to the question of the  propriety  of  continuing  Commission  processes  in the context  of this particular complaint.

The Commission voted to dismiss the complaint under the Rudd Amendment based on the following analysis:

  1. This complaint was filed by Joe Griffin, of White Springs, Florida.

 

  1. The Respondent, Rhett Bullard, allegedly serves as Mayor of the Town of White Springs.
  2. The complaint alleges that the Respondent knowingly permits the Town Manager to act in noncompliance with certain terms in her employment contract. In particular, the complaint alleges the Town Manager maintains her primary residence approximately 180 miles away from White Springs, despite her employment   contract requiring her to make her primary

1   Formerly  codified  in  Section  112.324(12), Florida  Statutes, the Rudd Amendment provides:

 

Notwithstanding the provisions of subsections (1)-(8), the commission may, at its discretion, dismiss any complaint or referral at any stage of disposition should it determine that the public interest would not be served by proceeding further, in which case the commission shall issue a public report stating with particularity its reasons for the dismissal. [Section 112.324(12), Florida Statutes.]

 

residence no more than 30 minutes from White Springs, and that the Town Manager works only a four day week, despite her employment contract requiring her to abide by normal working hours from Monday through Friday. The complaint alleges the Respondent is aware that the Town Manager is not complying with these terms, yet has not acted to correct the  behavior.  The  complaint  asserts that the Respondent’s  actions violated  Section  112.313(6), Florida  Statutes.

  1. The allegations in Paragraphs 3 fail to indicate a possible violation of Section 112.313(6) by the Respondent.2 Here, even accepting as valid the allegation that the  Town  Manager was not abiding by the terms of her employment contract, and even accepting that the Respondent was aware of her actions, the complaint still does not substantively indicate any private capacity nexus between the Respondent and the Town Manager, as would be supportive of the “corruption” required under the statute. Moreover, even assuming in argument that the complaint indicates possible violation of Section 112.313(6), Florida Statutes, nevertheless, under the Rudd Amendment, we find that the public interest would not be served by our proceeding further. We decline to proceed further because the allegations of the complaint concern internal managerial employment issues of the Town better suited to be addressed by the Town Council or forums other than  the Commission  on 3

2   Section  112.313(6), Florida  Statutes, states in pertinent part:

 

MISUSE OF PUBLIC POSITION.-No public officer,  employee  of an agency,  or local government attorney shall corruptly use or attempt to use his or her official position or any property or resource which may be within his or her trust, or perform his or her official duties, to secure a special privilege, benefit, or exemption for himself,  herself,  or others.

 

3 While the complaint also alleges that the Respondent knew the Town Manager had violated Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes, as well  as the Town’s  zoning  code, these  allegations-which  are not supported by factual detail-are conclusory, and while material allegations  of fact are taken  as true in an analysis oflegal sufficiency, conclusions or unwarranted deductions of fact are not a sufficiently specific basis for investigation. Further, Chapter  119 and the Town’s zoning code are  not within  the Commission’s jurisdiction.

 

Accordingly, this complaint is hereby dismissed under the Rudd Amendment, with the issuance of this public report.

ORDERED by the State of Florida Commission on Ethics meeting in executive session on December  9, 2016.

cc:       Mr. Rhett  Bullard, Respondent Mr. Joe E. Griffin,  Complainant

 

I WAS EXCITED ABOUT RHETT BECOMING MAYOR BUT BOY WAS I WRONG.

MY  OPINIONS HAVE DRASTICALLY CHANGED SINCE I WROTE THIS PIECE ON RHETT BULLARD:

 

White Springs again will be a beautiful place to live and enjoy ever since Rhett Bullard became the Mayor.  BOY WAS I WRONG WHEN I MADE THIS STATEMENT.  HE FOLLOWS THE LAWS OF THE STATE AND THOSE OF WHITE SPRINGS LESS THAN ANY OTHER MAYOR I HAVE KNOWN SINCE I HAVE MOVED HERE. 

Mayor Rhett is already a legal professional, an attorney with his own prosperous business who does not require the power plays Helen Miller used.   Rhett is respected by the community and the only reason we at one time gave him a bad time on the blog is because the then Mayor Helen Miller did things to Joe and I which were not even lawful just to ruin Joe’s reputation as well as mine further.  She used her authority as an official of White Springs to persecute us and no one dared to step up to the plate and say, this is wrong.   YES I WAS UNHAPPY OR PRETTY ANGRY ABOUT WHAT HELEN DID TO US BUT AS I INVESTIGATED FURTHER INTO THE ENTIRE SITUATION I FOUND THAT RHETT BULLARD CAUSED MUCH OF THE PROBLEMS FOR JOE AND I BUT ACTED INNOCENT.  HE MADE COMPLAINTS TO THE CHIEF OF POLICE AND DEFINITELY WAS UPSET WHEN WHITE SPRINGS DIDN’T GET THE HCDA GRANT WHICH HE BLAMED ON JOE…BUT IT WASN’T JUST JOE WHO OBJECTED TO IT.  WHITE SPRINGS HAS BEEN GIVEN GRANTS BY HCDA MORE THAN ANY OTHER COMMUNITY…AND WHY WAS THIS POSSIBLE…WELL BECAUSE RHETT’S RELATIVE MARY BULLARD WISHED TO HELP ALL FAMILY MEMBERS INCLUDING TOWNSEND AND SHE HAS BEEN ON THE BOARD FAR TOO LONG.  AND BY THE WAY MARY BULLARD IS PART OF THE DESPICABLE ANONYMOUS CAMEL CLUB.  SHE DARED TO SAY HORRIBLE THINGS ABOUT JOE AND I BUT NEVER COULD CLEAN HER OWN CLOSET RELATING TO THE SKELETONS IN HER FAMILY CLOSET.  YES RHETT HAD HIS OWN AGENDA AND HE WAS SEEKING POWER BIG TIME.

But in all fairness, Rhett, Willy and Tanja did object to the letter Helen Miller wrote and wished to send to the Assistant State’s Attorney stating that both Joe and Karin should be in prison.   And if it had not been for our Federal Civil Rights attorney and a new Assistant State’s Attorney and his supervisor as well as the States Attorney realizing what the town was doing was actually a political ploy to silence the blog and Joe’s ability to redress grievances and order public documents, we still would have a noose around our necks.   YES RHETT, YOU AND YOUR MUSKETEERS WANTED HELEN AND WALTER TO LOOK BAD, BUT YOU YOURSELF AND THE MUSKETEERS TOOK GREAT PLEASURE IN BASHING US BUT PRETENDING IN A MEETING YOU WERE INNOCENT…AND WE HAVE PROOF.

 

With Rhett Bullard at the helm, as mayor, with at least two council persons sticking with him on issues of importance, there is an opportunity to finally have the White Springs residents have less corruption.   Tanja followed suit when Nicole Williams was running by saying what a “bad” man Joe was and she doesn’t even know us.  Joe sent her flowers when she was ill and up to her recent nastiness regarding us, all we could say was what the Black community told us and that is she has done nothing for the citizens of White Springs.  DID I EVER MAKE A MISTAKE WHEN I THOUGHT THAT RHETT ACTUALLY WOULD STOP CORRUPTION.  RHETT HAS ACTUALLY BROUGHT IN MORE CORRUPTION AND KEEPS STACY TEBO IN TACT BY HAVING LET HER WORK A FOUR DAY WEEK UNTIL RECENTLY.  RHETT KNEW SHE VIOLATED HER CONTRACT TO THE TOWN AND TO THE CITIZENS BUT THAT WAS FINE WITH HIM.   AFTER ALL, WILLIE JEFFERSON BECAUSE OF BEING A DEPUTY AND A COUNCIL MEMBER HAS BEEN ABLE TO GET HIS SON OUT OF JAIL WHILE OTHERS ARE NOT SO FORTUNATE.  WILLIE LIES MORE THAN ANY PERSON I HAVE EVER MET, EXCEPT FOR TANJA.  THE THREE MUSKETEERS RHETT, TANJA AND WILLIE RIGGED THE ELECTION SO THAT RHETT WOULD BECOME MAYOR.  AND AS FOR POOR NIKKI, THEY COULD NOT HAVE HER IN OFFICE PER INFORMATION FROM ONE OFFICIAL BECAUSE NIKKI WAS CONSIDERED TOO MUCH LIKE HELEN…..REALLY?

Joe’s reputation as told to the citizens by Tanja, subsequently imputed to Nicole, a very fine intelligent woman, who has along with her family done much for the residents of White Springs. Nicole even started the HOPE program

I look to a bright future of White Springs for all citizens. Mayor Rhett Bullard does not believe there is a need for people to be on power trips and hide things from the citizens.  He feels we should all know what is going on and have an input on it even if we don’t always agree which is heathy for a productive society.  AGAIN I MUST APOLOGIZE FOR HAVING FAITH IN RHETT BULLARD.  HE LACKS TRANSPARENCY, LIES WHEN IT BENEFITS HIM AND PRETENDS TO BE THIS NICE CLEAN CUT ATTORNEY WHEN HIS NATURE HAS BEEN TO ENJOY THE POWER TRIP HIMSELF WHILE PUTTING DOWN OTHERS.

I pray that Rhett will succeed and find a Town Manager who loves White Springs as much as he does.   YES I COMPLAINED ABOUT HELEN WHO TRIED AND POSSIBLY HAD USED GRANT MONEY FOR HER OWN PURPOSES AS WELL AS THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS SPENT FOR UF.  BUT MY QUESTION IS, WHERE WAS THE ACCOUNTANT TO APPRISE HELEN THAT THE MONEY WAS NOT THE TOWN’S TO USE.  THE MORE I LOOK AT THIS SITUATION AND THE WAY RHETT HAS BEEN PROTECTING TOMLINSON, I HAVE TO BELIEVE THIS WAS NOT ALL OF HELEN MILLER’S FAULT BUT THE FAULT OF THE TOWN, AND ESPECIALLY RHETT BULLARD WHO HAS PROTECTED HER EVEN THOUGH OUR TOWN MANAGER HAS RECEIVED NO ASSISTANCE BECAUSE OF TOMLINSON’S IGNORANCE OF ACCOUNTING.   IT SHOWS THAT RHETT BULLARD COULD NOT AFFORD TO HAVE SOMEONE IN POSITIONS WHO WERE INTELLIGENT BECAUSE APPARENTLY THIS TOWN HAS MORE TO COVER THAT IT APPEARS FROM THE OUTSIDE.  AFTER ALL THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY DIRTY DEALS THAT TOMLINSON AND THE FORMER HEATH HAVE A LOT TO COVER UP.  AND NOW BULLARD HAS MADE CERTAIN THEY ARE COVERING UP HIS DIRTY DEALS. 

Anyway, Life is much brighter knowing Rhett is the Mayor of White Springs as he should have been last year.  And, Bill Lawrence has been an astounding Town Manager and I am certain until he leaves for Maine, he will do what he can to assist the Town and leave organization for the new Town Manager.  He has been honest, law abiding, with not only financial and management abilities but a mind which can assess a variety of personalities and work with everyone.   TOO BAD RHETT BULLARD PULLED THE WOOL OVER HIS EYES LIKE HE HAS TO SO MANY OTHERS.

WHEN IS THIS TOWN GOING TO VOTE FOR HONEST PEOPLE.  TRUMP IS TRYING TO DRAIN THE NATIONAL SWAMP AND SURELY THERE ARE HONEST PEOPLE WHO CAN DRAIN THE WHITE SPRINGS SWAMP.  IT CERTAINLY IS NOT RHETT BULLARD, PAM TOMLINSON, WILLIE JEFFERSON, TANJA BROWN NOR THE FORMER SHIRLEY HEATH.

And if you missed one of my previous comments, Shirley Heath was at the ATM when Joe was there.  She dared to ask Joe why he did not like her.   How stupid is the woman.  When another person did things 16 years ago, she solely blamed Joe and she brought hearsay evidence to the Civil Rights Lawsuit.  The things she stated Joe did, never happened or surely he would have been jailed.  Maybe, Shirley, you should figure out who really did those things and give Joe a big apology…but let’s face it you love your lies and you are good at it.

 

WHEN ARE THE CITIZENS GOING TO REALIZE HOW CORRUPT TANJA AND WILLIE AND RHETT ARE?   YOU NEED TO RECONSIDER VOTING FOR SOMEONE JUST BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN OR BECAUSE ONE HAS REFERRED YOU TO OTHER ATTORNEYS AND PRETENDS TO LIKE YOU.   HOW HAS THAT HELPED YOU?

GIVE ME A BREAK AND START THINKING ABOUT WHO MAY BE HONEST and HAVE YOUR INTERESTS AT HEART BEFORE VOTING NEXT TIME.   WE GAVE RHETT A BUDGET WHICH WOULD HAVE LOWERED YOUR SEWER RATE AND FRANKLY HE AND WILLIE AND TANJA DISMISSED IT.  THEY LIKE THAT YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH YOUR SEWER RATES…SO NEXT YEAR, VOTE RHETT AND TANJA OUT OF OFFICE.  UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER TERM FOR DISHONEST WILLIE.

YES JOE AND I WERE ALSO THE ONLY PEOPLE  with  GREAT EXPERIENCE, WHO WISHED TO OFFER OUR SERVICES AS VOLUNTEERS.  IN THE HISTORY OF WHITE SPRINGS, WE WERE THE ONLY ONES EVER DECLINED BY THE COUNCIL.  YES RHETT AND WILLIE YOU MADE A GREAT SHOW READING MY RESUMES BUT YOU KNOW IT WAS A LIE AND A PLOY TO MAKE YOURSELVES LOOK GOOD.  I GUESS YOU ARE AFRAID TO HAVE EXPERIENCED PEOPLE OFFER THEIR ASSISTANCE IN WHITE SPRINGS…BECAUSE IT MAY MAKE YOU LOOK NOT AS EXPERIENCED YOURSELF.  THAT MUST BE THE REASON YOU KEEP INEXPERIENCED IGNORANT PEOPLE ON STAFF.    FRANKLY I DO NOT KNOW HOW ANITA RIVERS CAN PUT UP WITH WHAT IS GOING ON.  SHE HAS TO BE NOT ONLY INTELLIGENT BUT A SAINT…AND SOMEONE BETTER REWARD HER FOR ALL HER WORK AND DEDICATION TO THE TOWN. EVERY TIME ONE COMES TO TOWN HALL, ANITA IS BUSY EITHER AT HER COMPUTERS, ON THE PHONE OR ASSISTING PEOPLE AT THE DESK.  SHE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL GET UP FROM HER DESK AND HAS THE ABILITY TO MULTI TASK.   I CANNOT SAY THAT FOR OUR MANAGER AND ACCOUNTANT.  IT WOULD KILL THEM IF THEY HAD TO GREET A CUSTOMER OR DO WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO.
