Lincoln and Twain and others are reputed to have said “ better to remain silent and be thought a fool then to speak out and remove all doubt ”
You proved yourself to be that fool last evening.
Are you really so ignorant of the nuances of American law so as to think you could have removed a member of an advisory board charged with “representing the community’s interest” because you and your Chamber buddies sensibilities have been offended, on nothing more than a one sided diatribe, relying on a 3-2 kangaroo vote of support from Green and Kennedy who BTW seemed so excited by that prospect that he about fell out of his chair in seconding your motion.
You have proved once again that you are not ready for prime time because what you have unwittingly unleashed is a process in which just cause to a written bill of particulars must be found in a public hearing in which the person charged must be afforded every opportunity to defend themselves against your scurrilous attack.
It should be most entertaining watching you find cause to dismiss the most active member of the ABAB while not taking notice of Sleeper Candidate Laney who has missed 30 % of ABAB meetings and rarely does enough homework to ask a question much less pursue an issue — AGAINST a backdrop of every instance of obfuscation regarding the financial nonfeasance of the Kisela administration that have cost taxpayers dearly, AND which I did my level best to bring to your attention time and time again only to find that you failed to hold the Manager responsible and accountable for fixing anything.
Make no wonder you want to shoot the messenger.
The only observation I will make on your 4 page diatribe at this time deals with your belief that I owe someone an apology. Perhaps I do and I tell you what. I will be happy to make that apology right after City taxpayers who were bilked hundreds of thousands of dollars receive an apology from the people who helped themselves to those ill gotten gains in that payroll ‘misunderstanding’, AND RIGHT AFTER you apologize to those same taxpayers for allowing the Manager to sweep that whole matter under the rug.
Shame on you.
BTW whose water were you carrying when you stumbled and bumbled through a document that you could not possibly have written yourself ??
