Helen Miller, town Mayor, in an effort to quell the near riot at last nights meeting spoke of an Olive Branch, a Peace gesture given by one party, the Citizens who are rightfully upset or the Town or the Town Council.
I told her then and I’ll say it again here “WHEN THE COUNCIL WANTS TO APOLOGIZE FOR 20 YEARS OF LIES, DECEIPT, FALSEHOODS, SELF INTERESTS AND A GENERAL OBEYING NOT THE LAWS AND ORDIANCES BUT THE SELF-AGGRANDZEMENT OF COUNCIL MEMBERS LIKE WALTER MCKENZIE AND SPENCER LOFTON AND RALPH HARDWICK THEN MAYBE THERE WILL BE PEACE AT COUNCIL MEETINGS AND IN THE TOWN.
As the below chart clearly shows that it is the People who are in charge and that the Council and especially the town managers who are to listen and put the People first. The People, according to the Town Charter are the boss. In 20 years that has never been the case, not one time in 20 lawsuits ,100 citizen complaints, corruption, theft of assets or countless brouhahas like last nights meeting. The council is impervious to changing or criticism and has been for 20 years. Am I right about that Walter?
Olive Branch? I don’t think so UNTIL the Council listens to the People, including me. I bet it won’t happen soon by the Council and I won’t extend to them anything until they apologize, in writing, with a promise to make the Citizens number ONE. Then your head will swim at how fast the brouhahas would end. But it isn’t going to happen as long as Walter, Spencer and Tonja wish to keep their “rice bowl” full of the people’s gifts and money. NOT A SINGLE CHANCE.
Mayor Miller, make the people #1 and make Walter and Spencer and Tonja listen to the people. Olive Branch from the people, I for one will never apologize to my enemies who have made me the biggest villain in White Springs, Just not going to happen until the Council #1 apologizes in writing and #2 listens to the people.
