    It is hard to start a Monday morning off any better than with a good cup of coffee and a great laugh! The email string below between Robin Fenwick and Ted Noftall in the City Manager email section should be preserved in the “All Time Classic” category of Ted’s craziest replies. Imagine Ted talking about himself being treated in a “disrespectful manner.” Not sure if that makes him the pot or the kettle, but it definitely makes him black. (No way Ted typed that with a straight face!)
    His email paints an image in my mind of a chubby little Canadian boy, with his bottom lip stuck out, eyes welled up with tears, wearing a medium t-shirt, when he should have on a XL, clutching his partially deflated ball, and telling all the other kids who wouldn’t let him play, “fine, then I’m taking my ball and going home!”
    I feel empathetic for Ms. Fenwick for having to deal so frequently with this bedlamite! However, even she had to get a good laugh out of this one!

    Thank you Robin, but based on the disrespectful manner Council has chosen to treat its volunteers I will not be seeking their approval to continue to safeguard the interests of Port Orange citizens by re-applying to serve as a volunteer on the Eastport CRA.
    Council exempted itself from its ill conceived electronic records ordinance, And despite warnings that the objectives of this ordinance could be achieved in other ways, and that this ordinance was problematic and ripe for abuse, chose to impose it on its volunteers’ board members anyway. It was subsequently abused by the disgraced manager Kisela just 1 minute after his announced 5:00 pm time of resignation.
    The underling ‘censorship’ premise of this ordinance to the effect that individual volunteers possess less than full first amendment rights of conscience and expression was further abused by then Vice-mayor Burnette in his sneak attack fully coordinated with Mrs. Laney the Mayor’s handpicked candidate in their un-successful attempt to have me removed from the two boards on which I then served absent any due process what so ever.
    In each of these episodes of which Council is fully cognizant, they have remained shamefully silent regarding the oath they each took to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution – all of the Constitution including the part about free speech.
    To reapply under these circumstances would be to sanction Council’s actions which have the end effect of dissuading volunteers from being critical of Council itself and this I will not due.
    Regards
    Ted Noftall
    for responsible government — 2016

    Subject: Eastpot CRA term
    Just wanted to remind you that your term has expired on the Eastport CRA Board. Do you wish to be reappointed? They have a meeting coming up next month and we want to make sure the appointment happens before their meeting, if you do want to continue to serve.
    Thanks,
    Robin
    ROBIN L. FENWICK, CMC

    Ted, I agree with you. What was very telling to me was that the city should have followed up on Burnette’s call to have you removed as a chairman and then you could have defended yourself in a city hall procedure which would have been followed probably by the national press.
    But instead, the city council avoided this problem by terminating the entire citizen citizen advisory board including another most valuable asset to financial affairs, Mark Schaefer.
    Once again, the city council of Port Orange shows that it cannot tolerate interference by the citizens of Port Orange. They are merely looked upon as investors, not co partners in deciding where their money is going, and in fact those who want to keep taxes down are not good citizens, so said Mayor Green on public TV.
