The new council will definitely have a problem with their New Manager, who really has never been a manager. Take for instance what we know about Ms. Tebo: When she becomes upset or angry, her emotional reactions are overpowering and off the rails. At that point she has no reasoning nor logic and goes into an uncontrollable passionate outburst. But many time she tries to keep her thoughts secretly but she will brood just the same and plan some attack in the future, if she can’t think of one at the moment, emotional reactions become overpowering. The fact that she Is known to take drugs makes her even more bottled up and evasive.
For years, former mayors Rhett Bullard and Spencer Lofton have allowed Ms. Tebo to do as she pleases. It is obvious she is not a leader and frankly she has never handled the job of Town Manager for White Springs. You can’t do so when you lock yourself in an office, and you can’t even supervise your employees because not only do you lack the ability to do so, but you have no idea what their jobs entail or what they are doing. Then we wonder why the books are such a mess. Ms. Tebo has to hang on a man’s shoulder because she hasn’t the ability to stand strong herself. Her voice is even weak and one cannot even comprehend what she is saying at times. And further her idea of Council minutes is a joke, It looks like an agenda instead of Minutes. It appears she has no ideas of her own, but has to secure ideas from others so that is why she follows men like puppy dogs. The only problem is that she has followed the most corrupt and ignorant of men which is an embarrassment to all of the Citizens she represents.
I didn’t think that each year Rhett Bullard and Spencer Lofton were in charge that things could become far worse as each year passed, but it did. We already know that Spencer Lofton’s way of “Negotiating” is whining until someone gives in or if he is in charge he will have a police officer remove you.
I can’t express sufficiently how embarrassing Lofton’s so called Negotiations have been. The situation with “SHE” was a joke. He brings investors not knowing what the hell he is doing and then thinks that he doesn’t need insurance saying “what law requires it” and the School Board will give him a lease for $1.00 a year. He gives the Black Folks good stories, but for the rest of us including many of the Blacks who are educated or who have been in business, we know Lofton doesn’t have a clue. Now isn’t negotiating and working on contracts to put forth council policy Stacy Tebo’s job. But wait, Ms. Tebo has never brought such information to the council and if Lofton is caught in something nefarious, he just lies, which he is damn good at.
Did you see the last letter from Lofton with your Water Bill. He is developing a “White Springs Youth Council” to provide our children the opportunity to prepare themselves for a future in municipal government and he’s looking for a leader. This type of thing should be taught in school. Who wants to be on a council of a municipal government if you are a child. A child wishes to expand their opportunities and a municipal council surely does not make money. Being a business Leader or a Town Manager…if you are a good one….makes more money than the pittance Lofton is thinking about.
Did you see where he said he is rewriting a contract for acquisition of the South Hamilton Elementary property and developing a plan to acquire assistance from the county with the softball fields at Ogburn field. Number one, the new council members have to make Lofton cease and desist on rewriting a contract. He has no law degree and his ideas are ridiculous. He has no business plan and you don’t make a contract, you make up a proposal, but that would not be Lofton’s Job but rather Stacy Tebo’s…but again, Tebo is not a leader and she allows someone as ill educated as Lofton to do her job. God help us all.
Mayor Miller and Vice Mayor McKenzie, Please please, I beg of you, please put a stop to this and make Stacy Tebo do her job, but only if the council wishes to do something with a majority vote. We can’t have Lofton making this Town any more of a laughing case and the sad part is , I don’t think Lofton realizes how
The last bone of contention is that Lofton said he has been in constant contact with Congressman Al Lawson and Representative Brannon in an attempt to acquire additional funding for community improvements. Okay, we Griffins, because I Karin am now a hard line Republican have attended Brannan’s open house and his staff member came by to introduce himself since we indicated the majority of the in town residents are Democrats. Lots of luck Lofton, the Department of Transportation and Brannon’s office are familiar with the misspending of Local option funds and the problem is that the Statute did not clearly stipulate what Agency would be in charge, never thinking any Town or even a CPA would dare to not follow a statute. So that is the only reason nothing has been done to this point.
Not only we the Griffins but other citizens have contacted Representative Chuck Brannon’s office in writing and in person as well as Senator Montford’s office regarding this matter. Unfortunately Montford tried to throw this under the table saying the matter was legal, but after a bit of pressure, he again must look into it. $750,000 is a lot of money to be thrown away against a dictate of the Statute. And these government officials all know, that if they cannot come up with a solution, they will look mighty incapable in their official positions when this gets sent to the Tallahassee and Jacksonville Media.
It is my hope that Lofton, Bullard and Brown be responsible for the money they have thrown away, as well as Ken Daniels and Stacy Tebo. This is not only corruption at its finest but is also against the law, but these imbeciles can’t read a statute and understand it.. So I am giving the Agencies a bit of time on this one and then Bullard, Lofton, Brown, Daniels and Tebo will be investigated as well as Montford who initially lied. Now the budget has to be redone so that no further LOFT Money except for that which is defined “Transportation” is spent on other things, including salaries for people who don’t work.
NO STACY DOESN’T DO HER JOB AND OBVIOUSLY DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO BE A TOWN MANAGER OR A TOWN CLERK. AND IF MAYOR MILLER AND VICE MAYOR MCKENZIE ALONG WITH COUNCILMAN MOORE DO NOT DO SOMETHING TO STOP SPENCER LOFTON FROM NEGOTIATING CONTRACTS AND REWRITING AGREEMENTS OF WHICH HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT, THERE WILL BE A PROBLEM. THIS IS AN ETHICS PROBLEM BUT LOFTON HAS NO CLUE THAT HE IS REALLY AS IGNORANT AS HE IS. HELP US PLEASE!!!
