The RHATT Pack Watch
Today is Friday, October 26th, Day 184 of the Rhatt Pack Watch.
Welcome to White Springs, Florida’s dirty little secret.
White Springs, quite possibly, is the Home of the Worse Taxpayer Benefit for Tax Dollar Collected in the history of the State of Florida. Generally, people who support organizations want to know their support is being used efficiently. For instance, from a very high level perspective, in the business world, a potential investor might look at growth and profitability as measures of a company’s ability to deliver benefits to that investor. If the company was growing and consistently profitable, it might warrant an investment.
In a not-for profit charity, a potential donor might look at the mission of the charity and what percentage of funds raised actually reaches intended beneficiaries. However, when it comes to government entities, taxpayers don’t have a free choice, but they still want to know their tax dollars and fees are being used efficiently.
Unfortunately, in White Springs, the Red-face Ratt, his Lapdog “Just keep paying me” Tebow and the “Gang of Three” members’ Mindless “Splain it to me” Tanja and Suck-up “Idi Amin Dada Mini Me Despot” Mayor Lofty have driven any benefit to a new low. Every municipality is an organization to serve its residents; not the other way around. Residents do not serve Town officials.
So, why is the White Springs Town Hall closed on Thursday afternoons. Residents are being robbed of ten (10) percent of every normal week with this closing. According to the US Department of Commerce, Census Bureau, there are 19,519 cities, 16,360 Towns, 3,031 Counties and 50,432 special purpose local governments in the US. Except for the very smallest government entities, generally those serving less than 50 people, NONE of them close their offices and services on Thursday afternoons. If over 89,000 local governments in the US can stay open for every full work week, White Springs should also.
Also, why are White Springs’ Town officials not available in White Springs during the normal workweek? Let’s start with the Lapdog. As you know, the Ratt installed the Lapdog in a late night ceremony at Town Hall, in the presence of the “Gang of Three” and several “Cousins”. She knelt down and kissed the Ratt’s ring and he proclaimed her as his Lapdog. As his Lapdog, the Ratt unilaterally decided to grant her every Monday off. It’s bad enough that when she’s in Town, she sits in her office with the door closed and locked, scanning the shopping channel for designer water, custom clothing and other non-essentials that tweak her fancy. But she’s not the only one with Monday’s off.
Just try to find the Police Chief. On Mondays she’s no where to be found, not even when there’s a murder in Town. Virtually nothing is accomplished in Town Hall on Mondays. Practically speaking, with NO SHOW Monday’s, residents are being robbed of twenty (20) percent of every normal week. By the way, the Census Bureau was unaware of local governments that operate like White Springs with Monday NO SHOWS.
aND THIS DOESN’T EVEN COUNT THE WASTE, MISUSE AND OUTRIGHT THEFT OF YOUR TAX DOLLARS AND FEES. tHE rATT AND HIS gANG EMBEZZLED OVER $150,000. tHEY STOLE OVER $510,000 IN fUEL tAX REVENUES AND ARE PLANNING TO STEAL AN ADDITIONAL $210,000 THIS YEAR.
rEGARDING THE wASTEWATER rEHABILITATION PROJECT, INSTEAD OF INCURRING A $315,000 DEBT UNDER THE fARLEY CONTRACT, THE rATT AND lAPDOG SCREWED UP THE PROGRAM AND IT WILL NOW COST ABOUT $1,259,000 OR NEARLY A MILLION DOLLARS MORE.
tHE WATER SYSTEM ALSO NEEDS TO BE FIXED, NOT COUNTING BROKEN AND TOXIC PIPING. iT WILL REQUIRE ABOUT $700,000 TO JUST RESOLVE PRESSURE ISSUES. aND OF COURSE, THEY FLUSHED THE fIRE dEPARTMENT DOWN THE dRAIN, THROWING AWAY NEARLY A MILLION IN sTATE AND fEDERAL INVESTMENTS JUST PRIOR TO THE rATT’S ARRIVAL.
oH, YEAH, YOU’RE PAYING FOR tOWN vEHICLES AND CREDIT CARDS FOR VIRTUALLY EVERY “oUT OF tOWNER” WORKING FOR wHITE sPRINGS. aND IF YOU THROW IN dESPOT lOFTY’S BRAIN CHILD PROPOSAL, YOU’LL BE ON THE HOOK FOR ANOTHER $2,000,000. sIMPLY STATED, NO INSTITUTION THAT DEPENDS ON THE VOLUNTARY PARTICIPATION OF ITS CONSTITUENTS TO PUT MONEY INTO IT, WOULD SURVIVE WITH A RECORD LIKE THE tOWN OF wHITE sPRINGS HAS. oTHER THAN for THE rATT AND HIS “gANG” THERE IS NO REASON FOR THIS POOR PERFORMANCE.
White Springs, you elected them. If you don’t like what you see, make a change. Get involved. Change the Charter so you elect the Mayor, not a “Gang of Three”, require Town Hall to be open all week and require all employees to work all week. Run for office yourself and start reporting all crime, including drugs, bribes, embezzlement, fraud, pedophilia, nepiophilia, ephebophilia, nepotism and retaliation. Call the FBI office in Jacksonville (904) 248-7000.
Never trust your Tax Dollars to the “Gang of Three”, the Lapdog or the Ratt. It’s Day 184 and the Red-face Ratt hasn’t resigned yet. The Rhatt Pack Watch continues!
