New Thread! New Thread!!!!

My humble apologies fellow blogians! I have been traveling out of state as of late, and am even now adding this thread from the great state of Texas. My cell phone was very active today with calls about Senator Vitter's visit to Alexandria today as well as Bobby Jindal's visit as well.

I am sure that our city councilmen are behaving a bit more conservatively these days... they may be next. The President of the New Orleans council resigned yesterday after being indicted by the feds after being caught accepting kick backs. His "take" was less than $15,000. He should have run for Congress where you are able to take $90,000 and allow it to go unreported!

Oh Hell no, you're not starting a new thread when I'm mad about something. I posted this before being rudely interupted:


Wait, Wait, wait just a minute. Stop the train. Roy raised hell, enticed a KKK man to rush to his aide, which fanned the fuels of racism, all because he didn't get his way on showing a meeting on a channel nobody watches, all over a fine of $100????

I thought folks were going to jail, being forced from office, etc. This is some BS!!!

Roy's acting like a child. hell, I thought somebody ahd done something really bad.

Folks - the ethics complaint spoken of is independent of the "open meetings" violation. Word has it that there was a separate "ethics complaint" against MYRON only because of his office sharing arrangement with Bridgett Brown and his cramming her "less than needed" legal services down the City's throat. That is what has KING MYRON so worried. MYRON baby needs him a "lawyafohim."

Anonymous said...

why would that cause fowler to hire a personal atty????

the only stink so far has been the secret meeting accusation, and it just wasted taxpayer money.

Anonymous said...

Ask Fowler - I suspect he's trying to isolate himself from Myron and his puppets on the "open meetings" violation investigation by the A.G./D.A. Don't confuse a complaint with the ethics commission with an "open meetings" violation complaint with the A.G. or D.A. They are neither mutually extensive nor exclusive.

Keep your eyes on the ball here and don't get bogged down in the muck. Myron is a master at misdirection.

Anonymous said...

problem is, the publics eye has been on this KKK/meeting fiasco.

If another complaint arises, the majority of voters WILL SCREAM STOP THIS NONSENSE!!

Anonymous said...

I watched this week's meeting and what I heard Fowler say was that he went and visited with his friend Judge Humphries in relation to passing the ordinance to hire Jock Scott. I did not hear him mention anything about asking him to defend him in the open meetings issue should it arise. He wanted his opinion on whether the case law being stated supported the ordinance since Humphries is the Humphries in Roy v Humphries.

As far as who remained in the room when they came back, only Chuck Fowler and CFS would not have been called and asked to vote because they didn't return to the meeting after the executive session - they went back to work. It would appear the phone calls or whatever means was used to poll the council only went to Myron, Harry, Louis, and Roosevelt.

You have not been paying attention.
I told you about a month and a half ago that you would begin to see the city council become very uncomfortable and that the actions would be shots across the bow - warning shots if you will.
Some of you scoffed.
Some of you are now paying attention.
Tell your councilman to staighten up and do right by the citizens or the severity and frequency will increase.
No fooling.

If the ethics complaint against Myron was filed by the local KKK Attorney-at-Law Plumber there is as much chance of something happening as a snowball surviving in hell. One would think the Atorney General and the Ethics Committee have a special file for their daily Aymond mail delivery.

What is cute is to watch this blog site operate on emotion instead of fact and knowledge. $100.00 HA HA HA and the penalty for and what constitutes a violation is contained in the City Charter.

Happy trails to you.

I am told by persons familiar with your past and present that you are bright and insightful and amazingly sloth. Just consider the possibility that you (like Mr. Aymond) get in the way of and tend to obstruct real progress. Just wondering.

In order to clarify Spanky's $15,000.00 statement the following is presented. One would have to draw the conclusion that Spanky has Myron admitting to being guilty of receiving bribes and resigning. Hell of a leap even for Spanky.

Oliver Thomas Plead Guilty To Bribery In August Of 2007

According to thenewsstar.com, “The vice president of the City Council, once thought to be a likely candidate for mayor in 2010, resigned Monday after pleading guilty to taking $15,000 in bribes from a businessman who wanted to maintain a lucrative city contract.”

Anonymous said...

Y'all are still missing the point. Neither Chuck Johnson nor Jock Scott can give (taxpayer funded) legal advice or representation to Myron or any other councilperson regarding this type of ethics complaint.

Anonymous said...

Not missing the point at all. Just not responding to your mis-use of words. Scott can "give" anything he wants to. Your statement should be (though not proven yet) Scott cannot be reimbursed with taxpayer's money.....

I know the typical response will be how nitpicky. Courts operate on the meaning of laws. Laws are comprised of words. How the law is worded will determine what it means - as an example the $100.00 fine for Open Meeting violation. Bet that scared the hell out of the Council. As another example - Fowler hiring Humphries. He never said that. He said Humphries is his friend and he consults with him.

To much bullshit being posted and not enoughy fact.

Anonymous said...

If you don't know what the periods mean they mean basically fill in the blanks. As in:

Scott cannot be compensated with taxpayer funds to represent or advise Myron in a lawsuit filed by a citizen unless Myron wins and an Ordnance is passed to reimburse Myron for his legal expenses.

Anonymous said...

Here is a fact. If Jock donates his advice and then gets a lucrative contract from those donees, he ends up with some pretty serious problems, as do the donees. It ain't as simple as you portray.

For instance, Trey says that Jock entirely drafted the original and amended ordinance for his contract. He donated his services (something of value) in order to get this contract. Is that a problem? Maybe. Does it smell really bad? I think so.

Look up "bribery"

Those of you'll with intelligence, and Spanky has intelligence, owe society guidance and leadership to make our society a better place. To stir shit for the sole purpose of stirring shit or revenge serves no purpose and does not elevate civilization.

If I possessed intelligence, leadership ability and the ability to work well with others I would contribute. My major defiencies ares I suffer stupidity poorly, do not work well with others and have a tendency to let my mouth get five feet in front of my brain. I am much better with the written word for you must think in order to compose.

I do my citizen thing by voting in every election and supporting the cadidate I think is right. However, my support is apparently the kiss of death for I am seldom successful.

spanky said...

I am willing to do my part. I have also found that honest effort to work within the framework of our local government have been fruitless. Therefore I choose to work from the periphery until our local government becomes dedicated to serve all people, regardless of race or economic status.

The assumption that a group of men can hold power and sway over the people is in error and my mission is to enlighten those that choose that path that real power comes from the people - even if it is one person.

A recent example is the last tax that was voted for. I was in favor of passage because of the stated goal of improving our police force to the level that community policing will be instituted. There was money in the budget to do the increase without the tax, but it took the express will of our community to make that statement it is the peoples will to have our security of person and property placed as #1 priority. Shouldn't that be a no-brainer and is the city council really looking out for us by not increasing security several years ago when it was really needed?

The city council showed their committment by making this move only after tax passage and not by rearranging priorities even though we had a surplus in the general fund that would have accommodated the increase in police and fire protection. In other words, allocating money for studies to out of state pet companies for dubious results take priority over our safety. Why?

These are the questions I want answered.

Number two fuel oil was extremely cheap this past winter and is a fuel that can be used at DG Hunter power station as replacement to natural gas. Why was that option not excerxised?

To me the "us versus them" is the vested interest in the outcome of City of Alexandria spending and ordinances versus the taxpayer-citizen.

This dichotomy alone indicates that the city has not operated in the best interest of its citizens.

Why is the billing of city utilities handled by a firm in Monroe? This fact alone provides a disconnect between citizen-customers and the vendor of services that is not regulated under any other auspices other thatn our local government. That is why when asked about utility rates, councilmen look at you and shrug. That move to Monroe was done on purpose to acheive that effect and alleviate responsibility from the council.

Until I get some straight answers for these and many other questions, I will continue to voice my opinion and stir others to become involved. Many others.

Until we get to the point of having at least 80% voter turnout, I consider any meager effort on my part a failure. I want all citizens to become involved in the future of our city. Only then will we become the success that has so long been talked about.

-Jordan was sued as the district attorney and not personally, so he must request the money from either the state Legislature or the New Orleans City Council.-

Saw this in the Eddie Jordan case and wondered why some folks said the city council had to use personal money to defend themselves.

Jordan was tried and found guilty, yet the taxpayers will foot the bill.

How is that different in the council case, since none of them were "sued" personally, but as a group. Seems like a no-brainer that they, acting as a group, can hire Scott.

Anonymous said...

The city council was not sued. They were each being individually investigated for their individual violations of the open meeting law (those that took part in that illegal vote. If the Ag had decided to file suit and their were fined the $100, that would have come out of the individual pockets of each, not from the city. Totally different situation than Jordan in New Orleans.
As the council members faced individual liability, they would have to hire their own personal lawer. If the won in court, they could then get the city to pay them back.

That's why you cannot trust blawyers (blog lawyers). You have no idea what you are talking about. The complaint names "the Alexandria City Council" and only the council. No where are individuals cited. So the poster is right in that council can act as a body in this regards, since no one has filed against any one of them "personally."

No wonder our city sucks. It's schools do a poor job of teaching government. Please tell me you went to private school, so my faith will be restored in the public system.

All governmental bodies toward a majority, even if it's by one vote. So by filing against the majority, and not naming those in the majority, it therefore encapsulates the whole body.

Otherwise, taxpayers could refuse to pay taxes because they were following the minority that voted against the new taxes. Once a majority is established, it then becomes the reality for all (see Supreme Court rulings).

That's just way it works. Even in Alexandria.

Good Morning fellow bloggers, please forgive this rather long winded post.

Mr. Aymond. Since you refuse to allow any of my posts to appear on your blog, I resort to cut and paste your ramblings here. If you take issue with anything I post, please respond here, out in the open, so everyone can observe. I will tell you once more, I will not go to your office and speak with you there. Too many of my acquaintances have done so and had their private meeting with you video taped and recorded, only to find out later that you had creatively edited the recordings to make things appear different than what really transpired.

In a recent post on your site you said… "Butch came in like gang busters and demanded an investigation by Rapides Parish Waterworks District 3, which he had formerly served on as a Board member…." This is absolute truth, but did you know that Butch, with the aid of Les Prestridge, also investigated you? Did you know that Butch was shown questionable billing records from you and vowed to “can that shyster…”

"Butch talked a big line and bragged about how he appointed a majority of that water board..." This is also true, and that Butch ordered his appointees to get rid of you. But did you know that the very people that you claim ousted you, actually protected you…refusing to call for your dismissal? According to members of the Board, your mother had just passed away and they refused to entertain such actions when you were grieving. Did you also know that Butch vowed to get rid of these very board members because that showed you respect and sympathy during your hours of grief?

"Otha Haily, Wes Hebron and Rich Dupree removed from the Board…"This is also true, but Butch removed these members because they were among those initially defended you, and refused to do Butch’s bidding.

"The people of District A are not likely to reelect someone who does not keep his word and is solely interested in stroking his own ego with political power." Again we agree Aymond, but for different reasons. You seem to believe that Roy Hebron is the source of political evil in District A when in reality, it’s your “buddies” Butch Lindsay, the sexual molester, Les Prestridge, Mike Burns, Bonnie LeMoine and others who have stabbed you in the back and laughed about it later.

"Oh, and a word of advice to help you out Butch, use of a Police Jury supplied vehicle and cell phone for private political purposes, such as carrying campaign signs out to one's supporters, could mean a term in the pen, instead of the Police Jury. Better fire your motorcycle up and see how many signs it can pack around." Another very true statement Aymond, and un-altered, original, film photos tell the complete story.

Is anyone in charge in Alexandria City Hall? From a distance, admittedly, it appears as though there is continuing confusion as to what role everyone plays in governing the city. During the spring campaigns, everyone was talking about moving the city forward, economic development, downtown revitalization. What happened to all that enthusiasm? Now that there is need for action and no need for slogans, there doesn't seem to be any of either. And if there has been movement, it has been slow, very slow.

How do you prove your an ex-klansman? Is there some sort of disrobeing ceremony and a certificate of being disrobed issued?

Does the head klucker denounce you three times? Is your sheet and hood recalled? Maybe Aymond had to get out because they don't make hoods in that large of a size.

Anonymous said...

OK, now that all the shock and awe has gone out of the "illegal meeting" crap, is this new stunt Aymond's way of diverting attention from the fact that he blew the complaint by not filing individually against each member, and thereby allowing the council majority to hire Jock to defend the whole body, all over a fine of, what was it again, $100?

Or is it much sadder than that, in that he just likes to make news no matter how incompetent it makes him look?

j. reister said...

According to the book: The State & Secret Oath Bound Lodges;The Klu Klux Klan By J.M. Foster, initiation ceremonies are all basically the same with a few minor variations from lodge to lodge.
However, one key component in every ceremony is a vow to remain loyal to the KKK itself and to always uphold the Klan principals of racial purity.

As Foster states in his book... "nothing can separate a Klansman from his beliefs and his membership except death."

In Aymond's case, a simple check of his recent postings shows that, despite his protests, he still thinks and writes with a philosophy rooted in Klan doctrine.

Post a Comment View All Comments Blog -The Town Talk

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Journalistic integrity requires that the Town Talk not accept statements made without doing proper research to determine the veracity of the statements. Before Cynthia Jordan began throwing around the word "illegal", she should have checked with the newspaper's attorney(s) to confirm whether Chuck Johnson and other "city attorneys" were correct in labeling the council's action "illegal."

Proper legal research would have shown that on September 1, 1983 in Opinion No. 83-738 issued by the Office of the Attorney General (State of Louisiana), it was ruled in a similar home rule charter environment, that the hiring of a special counsel by the city counsel on a continuing basis does not conflict with the duties and responsibilities of the City's Legal Deparment and City Attorney.

In fact, in the opinion, it was established that the council may retain special counsel to perform any legal services which are not prohibited by the Charter. Furthermore, it was ruled that although the City Legal Deparment shall direct and supervise the legal affairs of the City, it is required to provide legal advice and to prepare proposed ordinances ONLY when requested by the Council or its members.

The Attorney General's office found no requirement in the Charter that the Law (Legal) Department be the exclusive source for legal advice to the Council or for the preparation of proposed ordinances and no requirement in the Charter that legal document(s) submitted to the Council be reviewed only by the Law Department.

The coup de grace was the ruling that the special counsel could serve on a continuing basis and it is within the sole province of the City Council to determine the necessity of special counsel and the duration of his employment.

Cynthia Jordan not only erred in alleging an illegal action by the council but also erred in concluding that the Mayor has the right under the charter to veto the ordinance. There is a specific prohibition in the charter against the Mayor exercising a veto in regards to council staff appointments.

Therefore, we should expect Cynthia Jordan to be as blatant in her announcement of an apology to the council as she has been in screaming "illegal". Also, she should be as blatant in her announcement that the Mayor violated the Charter and committed an "illegal" act should he wrongfully exercise a veto of the ordinance.

Otherwise, her lack of remorse and failure to call out the mayor will underscore the paper's lack of journalistic integrity and focus attention on the true culprit putting the brakes on progress in Alexandria - the Town Talk.

ass Paine is wrong.

The authorized council staff consists of two positions:the clerk and the deputy clerk. Of course the mayor can veto an ordinance for a professional services contract.
An attorney generals opinion is not considered a legal authority and that position was subsequently overturned in the Roy vs. Humphries decision.

If the council pursues a course against the specific advice and direction of its lawyer and the result is protracted and expensive litigation, can they be held personally responsible for the expenses occasioned by their breach of duty???

I actually laughed out loud when I read this. I cannot tell you of the number of people in town that have said they got a Beard sign in their yard one night because all they could figure was:

1) They went to Calvary or
2) The person that owned the house before them went to Calvary

I have seen several locations where a Beard sign has been replaced by another candidate, or a Beard sign and another cand. sign in the same yard.

I have actually stood next to a guy who got a call on his cell from one of the Beard boys who proceeded to berate the man because he had a Maxwell sign. Beard lost a few more votes that day.

But the event that takes the cake is Beard showing up at the radio trying to force himself onto a paid political program. Now that was just embarassing, and the Town Talk did a great job in getting that message out there while not fully publishing all the embarassing things Beard had to say that day.

And as far as Roy being a non-factor its hard to tell. The Repubs are seeing a strong surge in the polls in all races. Many races will be over in the primary. Because of the crap going on in the city, Roy is probably running 3rd thanks to his brother, but Beard is doing all he can to screw that up.

That's why you get so many juvenile posts on here about Maxwell, they are childish enough to think they are swaying votes with these antics.

And as far as money is concerned. The candidates own public disclosure filed reports tell the tale.

We are going on many months now and nobody has undertaken to answer that very simple but very obvious question. He will reveal his true skills in debates and forums (fora). Poor Lance does real well unless you objectively compare him to ANYBODY ELSE.

Yeah, that is funny since everyone I know is talking about the mostvrecent poll that has several repubs running above 60%. Of course that poll is masked as a Jindal poll, but they also checked on senate on house races as a subset of the Jindal poll.

And of course you've heard that poll talked about on TV, radio, and newspapers, so you can just keep on laughing as if it wasn't true. Just shows the readers how little you know.

And that now means you've been caught in another lie.

Anonymous said...

Are you saying you polled 60% Lance. lol

Anonymous said...

Maybe it's news to you that in both pres. elections (that were very close nationally), the repub candidates received at, or above 60% in every race in this district. Even Dewitt himself has said a repub would win his seat the next time out.

It is the reason that the state party has targeted this district as a pick-up. Any repub in the race will get close to 50% of the votes, just by being repub. Maxwell is getting a bigger boost because of a church of 3,000 members.

This type of demographic is why Nagin won re-election. Although no one can understand it, the numbers were there and he won.

So your attacks are for the most part seen as jealousy from someone of Maxwell's age that resents his "apparent success." We understand that, and are just amused by your posts.

You really are a novice at this aren't you?

Anonymous said...

Oh, I forgot to add, that's another reason that Roy is running 3rd. Roy's financial support of the Kerry and John Edwards campaigns doesn't sit very well with the conservative voters in the district.

Beard is only ahead of him because no one knows where Beard stands, however, his son's rumored antics and past troubles haven't help dad gain any momentum.

j.reister said...

Again, my apologies to those who post here, however, since Greg Aymond refuses to allow me to voice my dissenting opinion to him personally, on his site, I an force to refute his twisted ramblings here.

It seems that WeSawThat has split the sheets with Mr. Aymond. Their once cozy relationship seems to be cooling. Perhaps WST has realized what we all know…Aymond is a blowhard.

WST posted the complete transcripts from Aymond’s latest court appearance on his site. If you read the actual transcripts, you come away with a completely different picture of what happened in court than we were told by Aymond. Aymond got his clock cleaned by both Judge Swent and Jimmy Faircloth. Also, by reading the transcripts, we see that the Town Talk was really scraping the bottom of the barrel when it hired Karina Donica, This poor girl can barely speak English and obviously is totally lost in an American courtroom. Inept, doesn’t begin to describe her reporting of this issue.

If you want to see a bumbling buffoon of an attorney attempt to plead a case…read the complete transcripts.

Give me a break Spanky - he can read something out of the Charter but does he actually know what it means???? Trey Gist had to explain the last thing Chuck read verbatim from the Charter. The sign of intelligence is the ability to communicate at all levels, not just the high superior one you have placed yourself. Perhaps Mr. Johnson and the Mayor should take an interpersonal communication class to learn how to communicate with others than talk at them. And while we're taking classes, it wouldn't hurt the Council to take a class in general communication - in other words think before you open your mouth.

J. reister said...

I am going out on a limb here, but I will make the assumption that this poster, Sunday, August 19, 2007 7:40:00 AM is Aymond.

Well hello Greg, nice to see you respond in your usual cordial manner. You take me to task for saying that you have banned me from your site, when, in fact, that is just what you have done. I have posted to your site a number of times in opposition to what you spoke to, challenging your facts and their origination. To date none of my postings have appeared…I would call that a ban, and I think others will too. So, if you are so certain that I lie, and I have never attempted to post to your site, please supply us with the proof of your statement.

BTW, I can supply proof that I did post.

Also, you call me a coward….I must ask, please tell us why you come to this conclusion. Is it because I refuse to come to your office, where I will be video taped and audio taped, thus supplying you the fodder with which you can alter and attack me with? I don’t consider that to be cowardly…I consider that being smart enough not to fall into your trap.

As to identifying myself…I thought I did by putting my name atop every post…I am James A. Reister and in case you want to know…I don’t live in Alexandria. But I ask you Mr. Aymond…why is my identity so important to you? It is your ideas and beliefs I wish to challenge, not where you live. Could it be that you fall short on ideas and their rationale, and wish to follow your well known “MO” of harassing me in court? Do you think that will silence me? You make your ideas well known Mr. Aymond, why aren’t you prepared to defend those ideas?

As to the Pineville E-mail case, I have read everything. However, in my post I was specifically addressing your bungled court appearance of August 13. You attempted to have Judge Swent certify a partial judgment as a final judgment so you could appeal. The only tiny victory you took away from that court encounter was to have Swent certify your right to appeal punitive damages and attorney fees. This does not mean you will get them, you just have the right to now beg the third circuit for them. Swent denied them, and she is a lot easier to convince than the third circuit will be.

On each other point you argued, Swent denied you. Please tell us Aymond…where is your great victory?

Bottom line is, now you will be forced to file a supervisory writ, and I’ll wager that that writ is turned away.

I invite the readers of this blog to go to WST’s site and read for yourself. After a careful reading, decide for yourself if Aymond has misled you.

Oh, by the way Greg, there is an old saying that goes something like this….”In any argument, the person screaming the loudest is usually the liar who is covering his own mistake…” You’re doing a lot of screaming lately Greg.

j. reister said...

To all the posters on this site. I apologize for the long winded reply to Mr. Aymond. However, Mr. Aymond has refused to engage in civil debate with me in the arena of ideas on this public forum. Instead he has chosen to attack me personally, calling me all sorts of vile names, simply because I requested that he substantiate his ascertains.

In the future I will try to be brief, however I will continue to respond when attacked.

Sincerely,
J. Reister

It is becoming ever more obvious that you subscribe to the theory that if you "tell the same lie long enough, many think it the truth".
What you see seated at the administration table represents 3 examples of very good legal talent. They did not get that reputation by not having the ability to communicate or a lack of knowledge of the law. Ask Mr. Gist for yourself what his opinion of Mr. Johnson's, Mr Roy's and Ms. Michiel's legal acumen. I am quite sure that his answer would result in more baseless attacks from you and your ilk. Of course, I am wasting my time and energy by replying to your post as it is not in you to recognize the truth as you are evidently a very innefective member of the propaganda team of the folks that really don not want to know the truth or have it esposed in public.

Perhaps you, yourself, should attend a reading comprehension course.

I also recommended a class for the Council.

Not a fair assessment. The council loved and respected Gist's opinion until he was unable to tell them what they wanted to hear.

If Scott says to the council what he has publicly said about the council, they are not going to be very happy for very long. Tony Martin has no experience, no skill, and very little talent. She is hired strictly because she is black. But Scott was hired because, among other things, he is soooo white.

Anonymous said...

That sort of implies Trey was a Council yes man and then switch sides.

How do lawyers decide things are legal or illegal? Isn't it just kinda their opinion or intrepretation? So if an Attorney General's Opinion is just an opinion and not a legal decision does that mean the COA lawyers opinions constitute a legal decision?

Does Aymond's opinion, the Town Talk's opinion and Cindy Jordan's opinion constitute a legal decision?

Why not settle the issue in court and see what THE LAW really is.

I find it almost comical that the Alexandria city council refuses to take legal advice from an obviously capable attorney (Chuck Johnson) that the citizens see fit to fund as an appointed position by our mayor (Jacques Roy) who has proven to be a capable attorney advised by a chief of staff (Kay Michiels) who is also a very capable attorney complimented with the opinion of Mr. Trey Gist, who is also an attorney of note.
The ludicrous part of this whole scenario is that it appears that 50 attorneys could not instill an ounce of common sense in the members of the city council that are drunken with their self import while using our tax money to further their stupor.

It is one thing to not know.

It is quite another to walk into the path of an oncoming train while a large crown is warning you of your impending fate.

It also appears the citizens will once again have to deal with the gory aftermath of a few men's vanity.

And it would be funny, except for the fact that once again, Alexandria appears to be guided by a confederacy of dunces while the citizens and the folks that trade in our fair town pay the admission to this ongoing tragic comedy.

It should be extremly obvious from such events as Caplan's and Weis & Goldring deserting the mall the intelligent businessmen are training to protect and keep their business customers.

Alexandria will shortly resemble the 9th Ward of NOLA with just the White's left that cannot afford to escape. Throw into the miux Mr. Race Baiter Aymond and it becomes a hell of a deal.

Speaking of Coucil actions. Watch the back door action by one Councilman Joe Bishop of Pineville. Inside word has it that the Judicial Proceedings set for the 25th will somehow mysteriously disappear as will the criminal case. Isnt it a great country where some elected officials can get special treatment and the rest of us have to live by the law are be faced with prosecution. Stay tuned and watch.

This city wants a government free from corruption where the council assumes their proper role according to the charter. Period.

And to this pea-brain: Monday, August 20, 2007 7:11:00 AM

The charter outlines the roles, duties, and obligations of each branch. The executive must not let the legislative usurp any of it's authority and vice-versa. The problem is, that under the Randolph administration, the council assumed executive like power and Randolph let them. Now Roy is determined to assume his proper, charter dictated role in the operation of this city. If he has to go to court to get it...so be it. In the end, the council will be forced to follow the dictates of the charter, like it or not.

There are some of us, while being accused of fomenting negativity, truly love Alexandria as our home and intend to see that it rises to a better place to live. That goal cannot be accomplished by fleeing everytime there is conflict.
I have personally chosen to fight the good fight to improve this town for my children and grandchildren and it looks as thought he battle lines are being drawn. That has been my purpose to this point in time. To awaken citizens to what is occurring in their city, in their name, with their money and not necessarily in their interest.

The first thing that citizens need to do is open their eyes and ears and minds to what is being done in their name for special interests. City business is taken care of for the common good, not to enrich the few.

Fast Track is a prime example of a fast one being pulled on the citizens.

Capricious zoning changes are another.

Copious studies that do not result in action or addition to a master plan for the city are another.

Transfer of public property without the benefit of proper procedure and citizen input are another.

Building new subdivisions marginally complying with city regulations prior to requesting incorporation are another.

Awarding contracts without full compliance of the state bid laws is another.

Allowing our police department to go undermannned and underfunded for enough years to cause blighted areas due to crime increase is another.

Allowing our fire department to suffer improper maintenence to equipment and failure to fund minor needs and repairs properly is another.

Allowing our streets and utilities to slowly deteriorate from lack of maintenence is another.

Poor overall planning is another.

While these items can be viewed as negative commentary, they each have an inverse approach that is not more costly in the grand analysis of doing the right thing for our city.

This is the crux of the matter. We have a city council that claims leadership, desires the power to impose, and has demonstrated the that it does not have the ability to priortize the needs and assetts of our community to make Alexandria attractive to retain our most precious resource, our progeny.

If our community is growing, how come our population statistics don't show it? Could it be that our council has no grasp of reality at the least and downright lies at the worst?

And their defense to any criticism of such glaring shortcomings is that the folks that speak out are racist. I would ask how they know?
Do they have contact with their detractors or seek them out to have a conversation or discover the depth of their character?

No.

That would require effort and sound judgement.

I would say to the majority racial component of our population, look around and ask yourself if you feel your business has been properly cared for.

Do you feel safe?

Are you riding on smooth streets?

Are your utilities affordable?

Do you see a rise in fire damaged houses in your community?

Do you feel that overall your business has been taken care of?

It is time for the majority to speak up.

Spanky, instead of preaching to the choir, why don't you appear at the council and address you concerns and complaints and demands and suggestions directly to them. Confront somebody or do something instead of all of the verbal masturbation just for the sake of cuteness or to be notices.

If you want something done, do it.

I believe some of the poll, but Beard should be higher and Roy a little lower.

Didn't Spanky run for council at lose? I think he's tried to make a change and the people wouldn't listen to him or acknowledge him enough to vote for him.

I for one would like some examples of several claims he has made -

When was public property transferred and no comment was allowed?

What subdivisions were developed marginally and then incorporated?

If you're going to toss stones, show examples.

Roy a little high, Beard way too low, Maxwell way too high.

Breaking news, Maxwell may withdraw from race to save face [and lips].
