So? Briley Twp Board kicked their "Citizen at Large" Member off the board simply because she did not vote with the majority? Wow! Don't we live in a democracy, where independent thinking is valued and appreciated?

And what about this little temper tantrum the Briley Twp Board had? Insisting that the three townships meet immediately to discuss Tri-Township Ambulance's interlocal agreement, or else Briley Twp. would start the process to pull out from the Ambulance service?

Boy, that's putting the community first! Planning to leave Briley Twp. with no Ambulance coverage. Oh, unless they pay big bucks to a neighbor to provide ambulance service.

I wonder what the citizens of Briley Twp. think of their "representatives" mature and intelligent problem-solving skills?

Who is the "Citizen at Large" member that is a female?

I saw a report of a guy from one of the other townships resigning from the board, but not a girl leaving.

jtb:
Briley Twp. Board has John Zollars as Supervisor, Jim Sipe as Clerk, Rose Cheetie as Treasurer, Bonnie Flynn as Trustee, Dale LaClare as Trustee.

lookie lou:
Each Township has a Twp. Board Member & a Citizen Representative that sits on the Tri-Township Ambulance Board. The "Citizen at Large" that was appointed by Briley Twp. to the Ambulance Board as their Citizen Representative of Briley Twp. was kicked off the Ambulance Board by Briley Twp. for not voting with Bonnie Flynn (also on the Ambulance Board, representing Briley Twp.) Since then, they appointed a Citizen Representative of Briley Twp. to the Ambulance Board that will vote the same as Bonnie Flynn.

The guy that resigned was Thom Seymour, from Avery Twp. After 21 years of awesome dedication to the Tri-Township Ambulance service, he couldn't handle the drama created by Briley Twp. either!

Now, the new "Citizen Representative" for Briley Township is none other than Donnie Edwards. Who used to be the Briley Township Supervisor, while he was the Undersheriff. As Briley Township Supervisor he also represented Briley Township on the Abmbulance Board during his tenure. As as side note: Donnie Edwards also initiated a criminal investigation against the former director & an employee for misappropriation of funds. The charges were investigated on a state level and found to be bogus. ALL charges were unfounded. In fact, the only wrong doing that was found, was that Donnie Edwards removed a confidential personnel file from the sheriff's department without authorization & violated the departments policies & procedures.

Don Edwards was a very honest deputy,undersheriff and Briley Twp. offical. He realized that Baum was in only for himself and how many girlfriends he could get, this is a proven point now.

Wasn't Don Edwards the one who left the Briley township supervisors position with little notice. I wonder how long he will be on this board before he up and quits. Once a quitter always a quitter. Funny how some only see fault in others and not there selves. Never throw stones when you live in a glass house!

Honest: Right! He removed files without permission & filed bogus charges. Give me a break. If he's so great, why did the Ambulance Board Chairman step down after 21 years of dedication, right after he was appointed as Briley's Citizen Rep? Maybe because Briley Twp bullied the rest of the Ambulance board. Donnie Edwards is an incompetent joke!
Baum only in it for himself: 14 years as the EMS Director & he managed to expand the Ambulance service to Advanced Life Support with 24/7 coverage without ever asking for an increase in mileage from the taxpayers! Boy, how selfish is that!
As far as his girlfriends go. That's personal & I don't care as long as he keeps serving this community, because there are only a handful in this town that have dedicated there lives to the betterment of Atlanta.
What have you done to help Atlanta, Mr. Judgmental?

Ahh, personal greed! Fine example of a leader. Don't tell me he left to serve his country when he could have had a far greater impact as supervisor. Money is the root of all evil. I suppose when he leaves again it will be for the betterment of our country or some other BS. We see how patriotic he is with his own personal agendas. Now that Doug is gone what will be next?

Corruption? Proof? I didn't think so!

So the new director is better? You mean the one charged with assault & battery against a female co-worker! Whew! I'm so glad the female employees will be more comfortable at their work now!(I'm glad I don't live in your world of moral standards)

That female co-worker was his ex girlfriend Miss Schalk. Who pressed charges on Mr Albrecht when he broke off the relationship with her. Thier was a full investigation done of this matter and all charges were dropped against Mr Albrecht.So beware guys if Miss Schalk is really in love with you this could happen to you also, you have been warned.

If you are talking about Briley Twp. you need to open your eyes. Briley Twp. does what Rose Cheedie thinks is best. She is the one who has kept the Elk Festival off of M-32 and stuffed it into Briley Park. That is why it is known as a flea market with a Beer Tent.
