Ratepayers Association Meeting Review
Last night’s love-in of the Ratepayers Association was a marvel to behold. As usual, the messiah who loves to hear himself speak on and on hogging the floor for all its worth in his typical one-man show of self-aggrandizement, leaving little opportunity for any of his disciples to get a word in edgewise, skillfully moderated the meeting all the while making sure to chastise those he and his team wish to replace on council while ensuring the blind zealots in the room were suitably instructed on who they should support for council, and especially for mayor. All the while espousing lofty words on how democratic he and his team were. This being the team that unquestioningly supported their leader’s actions in subverting the democratic process in this grassroots organization by subterfuge and intrigue while stacking the deck against all who represented a challenge to his and his inner circle’s game plan of ensuring we once again have a council made up of self-serving “lucky spermer” establishment elites and their lackeys.
The fraud being perpetrated by the fraudster went without a hitch as no one questioned what has been allowed to transpire. Apparently, no one cares… or they’re to afraid? As there was not a dissenting voice to be heard in the room. No questions on Bill’s apparent conflicts of interest either, with his role as a director on Community Futures or with his involvement in unaccountable so-called non-profit societies on the receiving end of hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars annually, or in a host of other questionable moral and ethical concerns. Including the double standard role he plays as president of the Ratepayers Association that according to him is ‘apolitical’, while he and the majority of his board have consistently sought to undermine the current democratically elected council in order to replace them with themselves.
No, despite all the above, the blind, deaf and dumb of the party faithful initiates in the room had no real questions of concern or criticism for Bill and his gang. It was a love-in, clear and simple. Warnings to beware were not heard.
This morning in an email from a friend and supporter I was asked why when it was my turn to speak as a mayoral candidate I chose not to? The answer was simple. What does one say and do when confronted by a room full of fools and hypocrites who are blind and/or indifferent to how they are being used and manipulated?
I saw with my own eyes what I always thought was a child’s fable in the Pied Piper of Hamelin. But instead of children, grown adults being led like sheep by a smooth talking charlatan, with so many hidden agendas that it would make one’s head spin, whose sinister manipulations I predict are certain to bring grief and despair to our community of communities, as what the Pied Piper did to the good people of Hamelin.
Beware people, for fraudsters are in town and they want to steal your vote. If foolish enough to give it to them, then you can count on four years of them and their friends mismanaging this community again while stealing you blind. It’s up to you whether or not you fall victim to their machinations. The choice is yours. You have been warned!
I’d rather eat crumbs with bums…. than eat steaks with snakes.
