Do you all remember this comment from our now Councilwoman Nicole Williams?
“Just in case you can’t comprehend like Tonja, WE USED YOU TO OUR ADVANTAGE TO SPREAD OUR NEWS. WE DON’T CARE WHAT YOU PRINT ABOUT US WE’RE SOLID. WE HAVE THE PERFECT COUNCIL AND I LOVE HAVING OUR AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN ON THE COUNCIL. I LOVE THAT WE’VE MADE HISTORY ONCE AGAIN WITH THE FIRST BLACK TOWN MANAGER. The only reason you are mad and throwing your usual temper tantrum like a fucking child is that YOU WANTED TO BE TOWN MANAGER. YOUR FEELINGS ARE HURT BECAUSE NO ONE RECOMMENDED YOU FOR THE POSITION. GROW THE FUCK UP. THIS IS WHY MO ONE TAKES YOU SERIOUSLY. YOU’RE A FUCKING JOKE. NOW GO RUN TO TELL THAT.
We are not the only ones who realize how ignorant the three cousins on the council are. After all, didn’t you realize that it is not one’s experience or background, in White Springs, which makes an intelligent professional Town Manager or Council Member. If you are Black, you are the best of the best and it doesn’t matter that you do not have one ounce of professional skills.
Nikki, you should be so proud of Tommie Jones. We knew he did not have managerial background instead of what you all believed and Helen Miller bent over backwards to give you what you all wanted, a Black Man and a Black Council with the exception of Tom and Helen. And Helen needs her black votes so she can remain mayor but we will be in Chapter 7 bankruptcy well before the next election or shortly thereafter the way things are going.
A professional manager would have realized that we do not have the money to handle Grants of that Magnitude where we have to pay first in order to be reimbursed. Tommie did no research like Stacy Tebo did into loans so that one would know where we may be and whether we had the money to pay those loans. At least she had insight into financials but unfortunately her council did not.
You should be so proud that Tommie didn’t care whether he deposited checks from our Utility or paid bills; all he did was say how he had no help. But who wants to work for him. He has no Human Resource Skills nor does he take responsibility. You should be embarrassed that the Town had to pay Mr. Whitehead to handle the budget because Tommie was incapable of doing it and it was obvious in the first meeting that Tommie could not even answer questions about the budget.
Tommie can’t understand the laws even if he would attempt to read them. He had no idea what the elements of bribery were before saying that Joe was bribing him when all Joe wanted to do was help him because we could tell he did not have the experience of a Town Manager.
It was so great that Tommie was playing on computers and messing around with security, when he should have been going through all of Stacy’s paperwork and checking out the financial information to be assured everyone was paid, that contributions ended up in the right place and for God’s sake, he should have been paying for the Health and Life insurance. If an accident would have happened to one of our employees outside of work, the Town would have had to have paid for it since there was no insurance. (i.e. If Chief Tracy would have had the accident in November of last year, the Town would have been responsible to pay for everything and it isn’t cheap).
I know you Tracy and Marsh know how to lie but you should be so proud that Tommie is probably the biggest liar of them all. This has nothing to do about the color of one’s skin, but Tommie is so paranoid that Joe would take something away from him that he fabricated a police report with Tracy and Marsh and what he said differed from his cousin’s or Mrs. Brazil. It is like he was writing some cheap novel and of course, Helen could never work with a Griffin other than to get advice so she pushed the issue. And this happened because Joe applied even though it was not his intent to go through with it for health reasons and Joe had hoped the other applicant would have been hired.
Tommie not only has not read the Charter, Statutes, the Sunshine Laws or the Constitution, but he appears not to understand what he has read. Others in the county who have had to talk to him want nothing to do with him, so you should be so proud. They like we do not believe Tommie has an honest bone in his body. He appears to have been a criminal most of his early years and has not changed like a Leopard cannot change their spots.
Even you three cousins don’t understand the aforementioned; that Tommie is a consultant not an employee and no consultant in the history of the town manager/council form of government has ever been hired as a Town Manager. You thought a vote was necessary when Tommie was told he had to handle public records. If Tommie and you all would have read up a little, you would realize it is in his job under the Sunshine Manual and that since he refuses to do that job and has not for almost a year, he can be fired, impeached or whatever in accordance with the law. Tommie has to be one sick puppy because even he doesn’t realize how incompetent he is and his applications with copies of computer information from Broward county was absurd. At his age, working with various computers does not make him an expert; and saying how good he was with employees is pure bullshit. He doesn’t know how to handle employee relationships and what he did to Yvonne Bryant is uncalled for. He is mean, vicious and a helleuva liar and since you three can’t realize how bad he is, you will be taking credit as well as Helen Miller for placing us in Bankruptcy. Congratulations, but we have history, don’t we Nikki? You are proud of having the first Black Man who is a Town Manager and that is what you want. You should have picked a more educated Black Man and one who didn’t have a low IQ because he surely doesn’t understand what is going on. If anyone of us would have made the mistakes he has made, we would have been livid and embarrassed, but not Tommie, he just points the finger at someone else.
Boy Nikki, Helen and Anita, you sure know how to pick the greatest Black Town Manager, don’t you. Jacqueline believes Tommie will save White Springs and it makes me wonder what she has been smoking. Can’t you see how unintelligent he is. He does not have his MPA and he must have just slid through it through some prison reform because he doesn’t have the slightest clue, his grammar is horrible, he doesn’t articulate clearly, and he has to have help and be told what to do every step of the way.
