The town charter says “The town council may retain consultants as the Council deems necessary, as maybe required by General Rule of government rule and regulation and when so required by compliance with Florida Statute 287.055. Said consultants serve under and at the pleasure of the Town Council” Florida Statute 287.055 is binding on the town by the Town Charter and the Florida Statute.
Such law starts with the phrase.
287.055 Acquisition of professional architectural, engineering, landscape architectural, or surveying and mapping services; definitions; procedures; contingent fees prohibited; penalties.—
Tommie is not a consultant because he doesn’t know any of the Open Government regulations of the State of Florida, some expert.
The definition of a consultant according to Black’s Legal Dictionary is “a person who provides expert advice professionally.” Since Tommie doesn’t know the first bit of Open Government requirements in the State of Florida he can’t be a consultant on Florida Law and he should not be making pronounccments on Florida Law.
Webster’s Dictionary says Consultant is ” one who consults another
2 one who gives professional advice or services : expert
Words that are synonym’s of Consultant are: “specialist, veteran, expert, advisor, counsel, pro, authority, maven, master, mentor, guide, freelancer” Tommie is definitely not an expert, veteran or a specialist.
Since Tommie has been selected to be the Consultant of White Springs he ought to know what a consultant knows. HE DOES NOT.
IT TOOK ME 20 YEARS TO TRAIN PAM ON FLORIDA STATUTES 119, 286.011 AND 112.313 AND THE IDIOT STILL DOESN’T KNOW THE MEANING OF OPEN GOVERNMENT.
Tommie IS AN EMPLOYEE, PURE AND SIMPLE. He meets none of the requirements in FS 287.055 as is required by the Charter of a CONSULTANT.
AS AN EMPLOYEE he should fill out an application according to the personnel and procedures manual. But he hasn’t done that. Why you ask? It is because I know how many felonies and misdemeanors he has on his rap sheet. For him to fill out an application he must tell of his entire rap sheet which would do one of two things. #1 Prove what a liar he is and #2 place him in jeopardy of falsifying a public document FS 839.13.
Part of the Town’s problems is that they continually tell falsehoods and then try to justify their falsehoods with other lies. I’ve been at this for over two months now, Wouldn’t have been faster easier and less expensive to just tell the truth. I can handle, under certain circumstances, someone who lies to me or the town but not someone who screws with my ability to get public documents, as Tommie and Helen and Meagan have done.
Long live Florida Law. Ethics Complaints to follow. And for the life of me don’t know what is so wrong with following the Law. Do you Mr. Brazil, Sr?
