What I previously didn’t mention to you was that Tommie Jones initially asked us for some work. Now we can hire Scott Gays helper at any time but it gave us a chance to talk to Mr. Jones. Today he apparently came by three times and of course Joe and I had stayed up late and slept in.
What I told Mr. Jones is that his education and abilities to be used on two old people made no sense. What he needs to do is get hired by the Town because it is his intent to “help all the people”. We went through some facts about Stacy Tebo in that her interest is in her home in Orange City and she still votes in Volusia county. Unlike Tommy who has a financial and vested interest in our town, she has none.
We also explained that we have nothing in the way of making this happen but we support and will assist him in any way. We mentioned that he should follow your lead and that you like we wish for the best in White Springs.
He mentioned he had met you years ago when you first were Mayor and he likes you very much. He also said a councilor visited with him and told him to not show his MPA immediately because that could cause a problem so he is only applying for the sewer water. I laughed and told him that it is best he doesn’t show how bright he is. After I got my masters in Insurance and even prior, there were many a boss or agency head that either had me signing non-competes and who worried about my challenging him. When Tommie worked for Miami Dade, they made it difficult for him to go to school changing his scheduled but he fought through that spending some $65,000 on his education and working around those schedules. I guess, he is the type of person that will lead you and the councilors to a greater White Springs because he is someone who I understand explicitly and when you manage what you need to manage to get us there, everything will work out. As I said God brought him here to help all of us.
In the interim Joe has completed two complaints on Lofton for SHE and the Fire Department Contract negotiation. The way he did these complaints is phenomenal and as if an attorney would have written them. He will not read them but present them to you this evening. He is now working on the Tonja one relating to her thoughts on why she votes the way she does.
Anyway, just thought you ought to know. Tommie should be hired for the Sewer Water job because our water needs to be cleaned up. Plus Joe checked and Tommie can take the recertification classes right at lLake City but he should be reimbursed by the Town as the other idiots have been.
I wish you my best and as you can probably see, Joe and I only want the best for this Town and that is why we are such fighters. It is in your court and I wish you my best. And then we need Anita Back to help Tommie and Curtis needs to take over Ray Vaughn’s job but that will be in Tommie’s court with your guidance.

Thank you for the background and insight. I do appreciate your
thoughtful information. And, I agree with your perspective. Here we go
… Thanks, Helen
PS 7/30/2020 sOMEONE WHO KNEW MR. JONES AT bROWARD ADVISED SOMEONE HERE WHO ADVISED US THAT MR. jONES NEVER WAS GIVEN $10,000 AS A BONUS FROM BROWARD COUNTY TO STAY AND WORK FOR THEM. WE ARE TOLD IF HE RECEIVED ANY MONEY AT ALL IT WAS A CASE OF SEVERANCE SO HE COULD FIND ANOTHER JOB WHILE BROWARD CHANGED THEIR COMPUTER OPERATIONS.
ANYWAY WHY WOULD HE AND THE POLICE DEPARTMENT WORK TO PLACE FALSE CHARGES AGAINST JOE. IT IS BECAUSE TOMMIE JONES NEEDS THE MONEY AND HE DIDN’T WANT ANYONE TAKING HIS RICE BOWL AWAY EVEN IF JOE HAD NOT INTENDED NOR COULD HE HAVE WITH HIS CURRENT HEALTH TAKEN THE POSITION. ANYWAY IT IS ONE OR TWO OF MANY LIES. AT THIS POINT I AM NOT CERTAIN IF JONES REALLY KNOWS THE TRUTH.
