The RHATT Pack Watch
Today is Thursday, November 15th, Day 204 of the Rhatt Pack Watch.
Let’s talk about “OUT of TOWNERS”. As you know the Town of White Springs has one full-time employee, who holds the lowest level position in Town Hall and receives the lowest compensation of all Town employees, that resides in White Springs. All the rest, that means every other full-time employee, are “Out of Towners”.
Start with your Town Manager who lives somewhere in Volusia Conty (over 150 miles away), but spends a couple of nights a week in Lake City. Take the White Springs Police Department. It has a Chief and several officers. The Chief lives in Jacksonville and the rest are scattered outside of White Springs; try Georgia, Green Cove Springs, Lake City or elsewhere.
There once was a Police officer who resided in White Springs, but the Red-face Ratt and his Lapdog “jus
t keep paying me” Tebow didn’t want any law enforcement that was close 24/7, so they fired him. Now when an emergency arises, as there has been, White Springs has no one to respond.
How about the Fire Department? “Well, White Springs doesn’t have one. And Fire Marshall, “Cousin” Andrew has no qualifications whatsoever. It’s doubtful he could extinguish a match if his life depended on it. Besides, he lives in Lake City and wouldn’t be available, even though the Ratt gave him and his wife one of the Town’s brand new emergency vehicles with some Town credit cards. What a life!
Or maybe, you’re interested in Streets and Roads. Well we have a new $60,000 excavator that White Springs doesn’t need. However, our Public Works head, try Lake City if you need him. And when there is a problem with Water and Sewer, well that’s “Cousin” Andrew again,who works less than two hours a day, gets paid full time and is usually home watching soap operas in Lake City. The Town does have a part-timer who reads the water meters, You know. Cousin Andrew is too busy.
Oh!!! I almost forgot, the Ratt and Lapdog added a Code Enforcement person. You have to hear this story. As you know, the Ratt didn’t want a “Gang of Three” He wanted and expected to have a “Gang of Five” which would have included the current three, plus Sell-out Willie and new “Cousin” Natteal. The Ratt was so confident that even prior to this year’s local election, he held a late night ceremony to induct each of them into his “Gang”. Both Sell-out and “Cousin” Natteal knelt down and kissed the Ratt’s coveted ring. But that was before voters said NO to both. As a reward to “Cousin” Natteal, the Ratt made a patronage appointment. He chose Natteal’s girlfriend as Code Enforcement Officer. And so she quickly moved to Town. But there is more to the story. Florida Statutes require White Springs to advertise the position, which they did not do. The Statutes require this process to be conducted in the Sunshine, which White Springs did not do. White Springs residents were not given an opportunity to apply for this position. Instead, an “Out of Towner” from Pennsylvania with no qualifications, but whose boyfriend had kissed the Ratt’s ring was given the position. How do you like them apples?
The Ball is in your Court White Springs!! If anything goes wrong in White Springs after hours or on weekends, you’re S___ Out of Luck! There’s no one left that knows and cares about YOU and White Springs and can do anything about it. Change the Game! Get involved NOW. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Take action! Remove and replace the “Gang of Three”. Report their corruption, including drugs, bribes, fraud, embezzlement, pedophilia, nepiophilia, ephebophilia and nepotism, ongoing in White Springs. In the absence of a local Police Department, call the FBI office in Jacksonville (904) 248-7000. When they come and they wil, it won’t be for traffic duty.
