WHY THROWING KARIN AND I OUT OF MEETINGS IS LEGALLY WRONG…

AND WHY THE COUNTY COURT (JUDGE SCAFF) IS THE MAN TO MAKE IT RIGHT. THE FOLLOWING IS MY ARGUMENT.

By virtue of Florida Statute 34.01 for jurisdictional purposes and in accordance with Florida Statue 166.041(1) Petitioner seeks to challenge the lack of enforcement of Municipal Resolution/Ordinance 19-03 actions by the Town Council of White Springs Florida. Attached is a summary of is copy of MR 19-03 specifically Section 6-(2) and (d) concerning items that are on the meeting agenda. Respondent refuses to abide by its own Resolution/Ordinance concerning Citizen Input at Council meetings. Petitioner was forcibly ejected from the February 2019 municipal meeting simply because he was in conformance with 19-03 and told Respondent that he was invoking Resolution 19-03. Petitioner has a right to petition its Government for a Redress of Grievances in accordance with Amendment One of the U.S, Constitution and is doing so with this action. Petitioner is not seeking to rule Resolution/Ordinance void but is only seeking to have Respondent enforce its own Resolutions/ Ordinances with regard to public input at Council meetings specifically items that are printed on the agenda as MR 19-03 Sections 6-(2) and 6-(5) (d) clearly states.

Excerpts of Florida Statute 34.01:

34.01 Jurisdiction of county court.—

(1) County courts shall have original jurisdiction:

(a) In all misdemeanor cases not cognizable by the circuit courts;

(b) Of all violations of municipal and county ordinances

SECTION 6 SUB-SECTION (2):

Presentations and Comments on Town Council Agenda Items:

Individuals who wish to address the Town Council on agenda items where public presentations are permitted shall address the Town Council after the town staff and applicant input, if any, and prior of the Town Council deliberation for the Town Council Agenda item. Individuals shall not address the town Council after commencement of the Town Council deliberation on an agenda item after public input is concluded,  however the Mayor AND members of the Town Council have the discretion to recall individuals to provide additional information or too answer questions.

Municipal Resolution 19-03 Section 6-5 (d):

In the event a presentation, testimony or comment period is curtailed in accordance with this subsection, the Chair may accept and encourages submission of written statements or other documentation to afford ample alternative channels for the speaker to have an opportunity to convey his or her message, testimony or viewpoint to the Town Council…..

Joe’s Comments: The town council adopted Municipal Resolution immediately prior to the next agenda which was the Local Option Fuel Tax (LOFT) debate. After the town staff had their say (which they were silent on) and before the Council deliberated on the agenda item, I rose to speak. Spencer, that bastion of stupidity, said “He’s (Griffin) already spoken.” On this particular agenda item I had not spoken and what I wanted to go over was four Attorney General Opinions that put to the lie the Town Council’s foolish opinion on the LOFT agenda item. A henchman from the White Springs Police Department grabbed my elbow, spun me around and lead me out of the room.

Karin tried to give to the Council the four Attorney General’s Opinions and was likewise escorted from the room by the Gestapo of the WSPD. The submission of other facts, the four attorney general opinions, was not allowed either from myself or from my bride.

THIS LETTER WITHOUT MY COMMENTS MAY BE PRESENTED TO JUDGE SCAFF FOR A LEGAL OPINION. AN APOLOGY SHOULD BE FORTHCOMING FROM THE IDIOT SPENCER AND HIS BOSS, RHETT BULLARD.
