UPDATE: WE WON WE WON WE WON
KELLY AND JILL HELD THEIR GROUND AGAINST A RUDE BUNCH HOMOLA FANS
There’s a lot of behind the curtains activities that could stop the recision, starting with …
…John Dean, in his last act as Commissioner signed a budget with this comment,
“I have friends who are deputies and friends who are Beach Watchers
Therefore, I must treat them equally in this budget”
So he supported Homola and Price-Johnson with his vote and deputies were terminated
With that vote HPJ and Homola realized they still had 2 votes and with that did whatever they wanted and continued to use Dean’s budgeting methodology
Then this year Homola was replaced as commissioner
That fiscal stupidity in decision making can and must must be stopped
At least Commissioners Emerson and Johnson can prove they are worthy of our trust with a serious change of attitudes in decision making processes when funding projects and associated other “feel good” programs, trips, memberships in useless groups, etc, etc
However, the DEAN budgeting methodology is not dead
Now Ex-Commissioner Homola is trying to get her followers to make a show of support at the Commissioners meeting Monday April 22, to help her old Taxing Twin, Commissioner Price-Johnson, prevent termination of their Recycling program which was supposedly needed to solve a non existent problem
Homola’s appeal, using Dean style logic is, “…. are pitting cops against recycling when we clearly need both. Don’t let this turn into a one or the other fight. To truly be safe and independent – we require clean air and water and the resources necessary for long-term job and national security. We can’t afford not to preserve our resources.”
Also remember next Monday at the Commissioners meeting, it was Commissioner HELEN PRICE-JOHNSON who said when she and Homola approved the Recycling ordinance,
“Doing the right thing is not always the most convenient or the least expensive, but I believe that in the long run … (the benefits) far outweigh the cost to this community at large,”
Obviously ex-Commissioner Homola, the “has been” fails to realize it was her history of this type of thinking and doing TO, not FOR citizens that resulted in the majority of voters replacing her as Commissioner last November
This is not the Commissioners’ meeting. It’s the people’s meeting and the Commisssioners are there only to serve the will of the people!
Please, attend the Monday evening meeting or call or send an Email to the Commissioners:
