The RHATT Pack Watch
Today is Friday, December 14th, Day 233 of the Rhatt Pack Watch.
Welcome to White Springs; Florida’s dirty little secret. White Springs, quite possibly, is the home of the Most Corrupt and Devious Public Notifications Practices in the History of the State of Florida.
Decades ago, between the 1930’s to the 60’s, a small group of Florida Legislators called the Pork Chop Gang wielded unwavering control over all of the State, basically repressing the will of its citizens. Over time, citizen momentum built to change Florida’s Constitution and rid the State of Statutes which had led to the empowerment of the Pork Chop Gang.
In 1968 Florida citizens approved a new Constitution. This solved some, but not all of the issues. Officials, whether Municipal, County, State or Other could still hold secret, non-public meetings, like those of the Pork Chop Gang at Legislator Raeburn Horne’s fishing camp at Nutall Rise on the Aucilla River in Taylor County and simply hide everything from the public.
The citizens of Florida got involved again. And beginning in 1995 a series of Statutes involving open meetings (Title XIX – Public Business, Chapter 286 – Public Business: Miscellaneous Provisions) and open records (Title X – Public Officers, Employees and Records, Chapter 119 – Public Records) were enacted. Since that time both Statutes have been tweaked and modified to provide the maximum transparency possible while respecting the limited number of areas that require privacy.
What exists today are a series of laws that guarantee that YOU the public are provided every opportunity to know what your government does, at the White Springs, Hamilton County, Hamilton County School District and State of Florida levels. The problem is that the Red-face Ratt, his “Gang of Three” members Mindless “Splain it to me”, Vice Mayor Tanja and illegal alien Suck-up “Mini-Me Despot” Mayor Lofty and the “Out of Towner” Lapdog “Just keep paying me” Tebow CHEAT.
One of the requirements under Florida’s Sunshine laws relates to Public Notification. Well this bunch of “CHEATS” on the Town Council and in Town Hall don’t want you to know what they are doing, so they work very hard to make it as unlikely as possible that you can find out. For instance, every time they plan to pull one of their Shenanigans, they conveniently forget to post a notice outside Town Hall or beside the old Fire Station. But they are required to advertise what they’re going to do.
Well they claim they meet the letter of the law by putting something in fine print in the middle of the classifieds in Gainesville, Jacksonville, Tallahassee or Valdosta papers. Now let’s cut the crap. No one in White Springs has access to or reads any of these papers, but that’s what they are planning on. If no one knows, no one gets in the way of their devious undertakings. They’ve been caught at this time after time, so now they are getting even more devious. How many of you check the Facebook page of the defunct White Springs Fire Department on a daily basis? That’s what I thought. NO ONE!
Well, that’s where the Ratt had the Lapdog post the latest position for a Maintenance Tech. Just consider the following for a minute. The Ratt, his “Gang” and the Lapdog don’t want any public input. That’s why the Despot Mayor Lofty has anyone who tries manacled and hauled away. So suppose they were going to raise water or wastewater fees or taxes or something that might warrant YOUR input, like the Pork Chop Gang, they want to hide it from you, pass it without your valuable input and spring it on you. They have implemented, by far, the most corrupt and devious Public Notification practices in Florida’s history.
