January 5, 2015 Board Meeting Recap: The Watch Your Step Edition

When I first entered the room, I realized that some of my readers were correct. I guess we’re back to protection mode. For those of you that don’t know, Merlene “The Clerk That Cries Wolf” Wall, claimed that I tried to trip her after the counting of the affidavit ballots. She, along with Cora Rogers, the Alderwoman at Large in a code charter missipality (her words not mine) were trying to force the chief of police to arrest me for “trying to trip Merlene.” I think Cora said she witnessed the event but we’re in the fortress of city hall, the most protected building in Lumberton with security cameras in every room. Why not roll back the tape and show where I “tried to trip” Merlene. By the way, what is the code for charging a person for “trying to trip” another person? I know they looked for hours to find a code to put in the system when they had me arrested for not paying a parking ticket. But keep in mind that this is Merlene, she’s the same liar that filed a case saying I was stalking her when I was confined to the use of a walker. During the meeting, I had the privilege of sitting next to Pastor Curtis Merritt and he noticed someone that kept staring at me and he asked me what was the problem and I gave the history of what was going on and he said well if he has a problem with you, he has a problem with me. Now that's what you call a Mighty Man of Valor and he's not even my pastor.

I’m going to give an overview of the meeting and I will not discuss every detail from the meeting. Noticeably absent from the meeting was city attorney, Lindsey Carter, but the board managed to stay in executive session for an extended period of time to discuss litigation regarding the water department. First on the agenda was the order to apply for a $600 CAP loan in order to secure the $2.5 million dollar Army Corp of Engineer Grant that Ben Winston claimed was already secured and Kent Crider claimed he needed to be mayor in order for the grant to be completed. It looks like Cora Rogers beat him to the punch. Now, here’s what they’re not telling the public. The board is scrambling to secure this grant because they don’t want any investigation into the fact that Ben Winston signed the contract without board approval and that Merlene Wall attested that he $625,000 was in the general fund in a letter she submitted to the Army Corp of Engineer. Therefore, the board is doing everything they can to secure the grant because they don’t want an investigation into the backroom business dealings of Lumberton. Now do you see why they went to such great lengths to keep me out of city hall? I’m curious to see if they can obtain the loan, especially after they defaulted on another major loan and how are they planning on repaying that loan? This should be interesting!

During the department head reports, it was revealed that Gold Coast Skydivers has failed to provide a copy of their tax returns, a requirement of their lease agreement; not that it’s going to give the board cause to either cancel the lease or raise the rental rate because they feel that $350/month is a fair price to rent an entire airport and turn it into a FEMA park. Well #1 is broken and the water supply in Lumberton is in jeopardy because the board is waiting on the Army Corp of Engineer grant to pay the $37,246.00 needed to repair the well. If I were you, I would either get a water filter or drink bottled water because the chances of this loan getting approved is very slim. The city received a settlement of $4,064.02 from State Farm for the accident involving Officer Daniel Wilczek. There was another vote to approve the change in work hours for Ms. Betty Speights from 20 hours/week to 32/hours/week. Crider and Dukes voted against the change and Rogers and McGraw voted for the change. Cora Rogers actually utilized the only voting power of a mayor and broke the tie in favor of the increase in hours. Despite the error in the posting of the December 22, 2015 minutes, the board voted to approve the minutes.

Payroll for the month of December 2015 was $44,408.99. Paid claims for the month of December was $13,558.98 general fund and $21,614.27 for WSOM. Unpaid claims for the month of December was $18,338.14general fund and $27,291.82 WSOM. Per the request of Danny Davis, the board voted to increase Michael Tims pay from $8.00/hour to $10.00/hour because he’s the new “Roy” . Crider, McGraw and Dukes voted for the raise and Rogers against because he was not sure if there was money in the budget for the raise. The board went into executive session, there was one citizen comment (video posted on Facebook) and the meeting was adjourned.

Comments

  1. I was coming out of the post office and guess who I saw? Cora Rogets parked in front of Jay McGraw's house. Two thieves plotting. He steals shiny things and she steals from The District. I was too nervois to take a picture.

    1. We apparently came through at the same time because I saw them to but I took a photo and waved. I went by her daycare center and took some photos too for an upcoming blog series. Next time don't be nervois. They can't do anything to you.

  2. When Cora announced that Kent won the election he didn't look excited. He kept his head down and didn't bother to thank or address the voters. I guess stealing an election is not as joyful as he thought. Maybe I was expecting more. And did you notice how Johnnie Buckley was prancing around? I heard he's running for Kent's spot. I hope someone else is running too. Why didn't Kent submit his letter of resignation last night? Hoes he going to hold 2 positions?

  3. I remember when Michael was hired and you said he was going to replace Roy. I guess people forgot. Over time Michael has proven himself a good worker but here's my problem. On the video they said he needed a raise because he has a family. When they fired Stanley after 20 years of working for the City of Lumberton did they consider his family? He lost his house and had to leave Lumberton. When they fired Perry McLemore did they think of his family? He died because he lost his medical insurance and couldn't pay for his cancer treatments but Danny had them fired so he can hire a seasonal worker and now he's managed to get them to give him a $2 per hour raise. Are the rest of the guys getting a raise?

  4. I'm amazed at the ignorance of the people of Lumberton. You had an intelligent mayor named Miriam Holder. You vote her out for a Sambo named Ben Winston. He resign and then you vote a racist mortician in instead of an intelligent person that has the ability to think independently. I'm not worried about Crider but his regin is going to lead to some good hearted people losing their jobs because he's going to finish what Ben started. He's going to try his best to fire Elsie and Betty. Ben originally promised to get rid of Merlene and was going to bring back Stephanie but now they're going to keep her because her morals are lower than the belly of a pregnant maggot. So keep looking for reasons to hate on Jonathan but this city will not progress under Crider because there's only one intelligent person on the board and his name is Quincy. Some day the people will wake up and give him some help. Stay encouraged Jonathan because they'll be begging for you to run in 2 years.

  5. Things never change in this town. Oh wait. They do but when are we going to get tired of these lying clerks and their buddies? For someone to have a clot in their lungs and a cyst below their heart one would think she wouldn't want to be a part of the corrupt web that Merlene is constantly spinning. When you support a lie then you're a liar. I see the price for souls has been drastically reduced. Get you one now for 32 hours a week, comp time, and office conjugal visits.

    2. Now I'm a coward. Didn't you say that J Griff blocked all your post? Were they anonymous? You did, however, prove him right. You all are at work reading the blog instead of doing your job. I hope you recover from whatever ails you. I heard it was a hysterectomy but I could be wrong. To show there's no hard feelings I'll treat you guys to some cigarettes and Blue Bell ice cream. See you at the doughnut shop.

    4. I really hope you get better. Maybe you can go back to getting cum baths from fat hairy men while your micro penis husband watch as you take it up the ass. Next time don't invite me and my husband over because we're not into dykes and your house stinks. Nice job on the remodel. It's almost good enough for a porno.

  6. I wonder if Melissa is still into getting landsharked and snowblowing Greg or was that Lisa? Google them terms at urban dictionary if you don't know what they mean.
