At business from the floor at last night's Arnold City council meeting, myself and others spoke against bringing back Mr. Sweeney and how much money his advice has and will cost us in the future, the bad advice on the storm water tax alone will probably cost the taxpayers upwards of 2 million dollars. It has never been exposed as to how much was spent on his relentless pursuit of the bogus Sonia Adams case, even though requests for the information were made under the Sunshine Law. The many costs associated with Mr. Sweeney's bad advice will be chronicled.
A class action suit against the individual councilmen who voted to remove Mr. Tesreau is in the works, there are many people who recognize dereliction of duty when they see it, feel free to join the fight. Here is what I had to say:
3. A FEW WEEKS AGO YOU CHOSE TO TAKE THE POWER THAT YOU SHARED WITH THE MAYOR AND VOTED TO BESTOW UPON YOURSELVES COMPLETE POWER TO RELIEVE THE CITY ATTORNEY FROM HIS DUTIES.
IN YOUR ARROGANCE, YOU READILY ADMITTED AND PUBLICLY STATED THAT IT WAS FOR PURELY POLITICAL REASONS AND THAT YOU WOULD REFUSE TO APPROVE ANY APPOINTEE OF THE MAYOR OTHER THAN BOB SWEENEY. ARE STRONG ARM TACTICS LEGAL? TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION THAT MR. SWEENEY OPENLY COMPAIGNED FOR AND RAISED OVER $17,000 FROM CORPORATE AND INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF THE CITY, HECK OUTSIDE OF THE STATE, ONE WOULD THINK YOU WOULD RECOGNIZE AN OBVIOUS CONFLICT OF INTEREST!

AS I DID NOT SEE ANY COMPLETED RFP'S IN THE PACKET FOR A PERMANENT REPLACEMENT FOR MR. TESREAU, I WOULD ASK IF YOU PLAN TO CONDUCT CITY BUSINESS WITHOUT AN ATTORNEY? OR DO YOU PLAN TO PAY A MUCH HIGHER AMOUNT OF TAXPAYER MONEY FOR ONE TO "TIDE US OVER?" WHAT ATTORNEY WOULD WANT TO WORK HERE IN ARNOLD NOW? I KNOW, THE GUY WHO RAN TO A PRESS CONFERENCE TO CRY ABOUT LOSING HIS JOB WITH HIS (lawbreaking)GOONS BILL MORIZ AND RANDY CRISLER STANDING BEHIND HIM WHILE HE DISPARAGED AND DISRESPECTED THE VERY PLACE HE WANTS TO COME BACK TO WORK. IS THAT THE KIND OF MAN WE WANT REPRESENTING OUR CITY?
ONE WHO WANTS THE $200,000 A YEAR PART-TIME JOB BACK, YOU KNOW THE ONE WHERE HE BILLED US FOR 2199 HOURS WHILE WORKING FOR 5 OR 6 OTHER PUBLIC ENTITIES AND BILLED THEM FOR 1350 HOURS (INCLUDES 300 PRO-BONO HOURS.) IF YOU ADD THOSE UP AND SAY HE HAD NO PRIVATE CLIENTS, WHICH WE ALREADY KNOW HE DID, THAT WOULD MEAN HE SLAVED ABOUT 64 HOURS A WEEK AND TOOK NO VACATION. YOU DO THE MATH, I DID AND IT JUST DOESN'T ADD UP.

IF YOU GO THROUGH WITH THIS ACTION THIS EVENING, I AM PREPARED TO SIGN UP A LOT OF PEOPLE TO FILE A CLASS-ACTION SUIT AGAINST THE INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS OF THIS COUNCIL VOTING TO RELIEVE MR. TESREAU OF HIS DUTIES FOR FAILURE TO REPRESENT OUR BEST INTERESTS SO THAT YOU CAN GRANT POLITICAL FAVORS FOR THOSE WHO FILL YOUR CAMPAIGN COFFERS.

Adding to the above, the Arnold City Council, in a vote of 6-2, relieved our current city attorney from his duties. Numerous citizens and the Mayor told them it was not the right thing to do, but in their arrogance, they don't care what the people want or what is right, their only focus is their political agenda.
They are representing their own interests and not the interests of the people they were elected to represent. Because of their actions, the City of Arnold will have to spend a lot more of taxpayer money for an attorney to step in and tide us over, than we were spending. Their sole purpose is to bring Bob Sweeney back. I can't wait to get this sham of a meeting up on line!
If you live in Arnold contact your corrupt corporate councilmen and tell them you don't want the high paid liar back. Ward 1 Cricky Lang 2 82-355 4, Randy Crisler 2 87-142 1, Ward 2,Bill Moritz 2 96-7636, Ward 4 Ken Moss 2 87-657 7. Ward 2 Jim Edwards and Ward 3 Paul Freese do not share their phone numbers with the public so I would suggest calling City Hall and voicing your opinions for them at 2 96-210 0 or 2 96-660 0.
Oh and if any of this happens to be deleted, you all know where you can find it.

Doris just cause it isn't ur way doesn't make it wrong. If you spend 1% of ur negative and mean attitude into making Arnold better it would all help. Counts and his past cronies (which were all unelected) started this whole mess. He sits there and lies every meeting and you never call him out. Your friends even threaten and scream at meetings. Get over yourself.

My way???? Or do you mean the honest way? Truth, honesty, integrity and transparency in government is the way it is supposed to be. They work for us, they are NOT the ruling class, they are supposed to be public servants. Instead they lie, cheat, connive and break the law to achieve THEIR goals. People are tired of crooked politicians just doing whatever they please, legal or illegal, ethical or unethical. Officials are elected to serve the people, not corporate or their own self interests. I think you are going to find yourself in the minority or the very least in the middle of a firestorm of protest soon. Funny thing is I have proof to back up my claims, something you obviously don't possess or don't care to acknowledge. That is where the perception of arrogance is coming from. This council was bought and paid for by the funds raised by Bob Sweeney so he could buy his way back into that lucrative job. You cannot dispute the facts. ATS(American Traffic Solution's representatives, Morris, Stinson and Hecker contributed $4000, another $1000 came from another of their attorneys, Jane Dueker. Clayco, a developer, chipped in $7500, then there was Caroline Sullivan, wife of David Lyles Sullivan, Hillary Clinton's money man, who contributed $4800 from all the way over in North Caroline. Can you understand the special interests at work here? These candidates were NOT supported by local businesses or residents. We need councilmen who represent the interests of the local people and local businesses, not those bought and paid for with thousands of corporate dollars. Those corporations aren't giving that money for nothing, they expect plenty in return, and last night was the first step in their quest to bleed the local economy. It is an industry standard that $120 is received in contracts and awards for every dollar contributed by a company lobbying candidates with contributions to their campaigns. The above figures indicate about $519,000 will flow to those companies...how much does American Traffic Solutions collect every year???? I would say, I rest my case, but there is a lot more coming.....

Doris your like a little kid in a sandbox if you cant have your bucket and shovel then you get upset and pout. Real mature to with the name calling. Give me a break your running around in those god awful pants thinking that you are the savior of Arnold's problems. YOUR NOT! There is a reason why you lost that election because people in Arnold especially in ward one doesnt want wack jobs like you in office. You and your other coharts who sit in the back row do nothing but disrupt the meeting with your little side comments and then stand outside calling people names and then rip on Amato just because he was standing there. Yeah this is going to get things resolved real quick. You talk about a class action lawsuit and yet you complain about other lawsuits that are a waste of time. Well your lawsuit is a waste of time and money.

Name calling? Liars, cheaters and theives, sorry you must be mistaken, that's just telling it like it is. You are entitled to your opinion of my clothing, but it has nothing to do with the issue at hand, which is how your favoritew corrupt corporate councilpersons are handling the affairs of this fine city. Now, if you could come up with some valid facts supporting your position, someone might take a second glance, but all you can do is try to disparage me. Too bad, it won't work. Like I said before, if you don't like my choice of clothing, you could always order what you like and send it to me....you fashion mogul you!:)

Madness you say???

Stop the madness of wasting money on $1.5 million dollar mistakes, the hours to research and fix them. The hours and money for an outside firm to verify because the one responsible can't be trusted to do his/her job!

Is the trash collection revenue paying for the IPads? This investment in technology makes absolutely no business cost vs. return justification. Basic Business calculations will prove this if all the numbers are used.

It is time for multiple persons to resign before much more hits the news. Your title of this thread is a direct hit and many should be very nervous about what facts are next.

Please continue to share the facts and please let us know where the class action signing line begins.

Oh and Jim Edwards aka Smart Arnold Resident(wishful thinking on his part) pipes in, well well, that's much nicer than the salty language you were using last night! Do you have any kind of facts or figures you would like to bring out, or do you just want to call me names too? That's OK, we've already determined that you have Napoleon complex and suffer from LDS, as a trucker, you should know what that is.....

So what do you have to say about Mr. Shoenbeck (ex-councilman and gun shop owner) threatening councilman Moss last night. Mr. Moss is doing his job and voting as to what he feels is right and one of ur cronies threatens him. Are you condoning this Doris? Mr. Moss is damned either way. Either on Ron (the lier mayor) or Randy (big head) side of the fence. Can't be fun. There are good people left on our council. Spend time fixing and helping.....

What would you like me to say? What do you consider a threat? Oh, I get it, you must be trying to emulate the ploys pulled by Mr. Amato repeatedly. His famous words "Are you threatening me?" I can still hear him, what a twit. Then he has a Sheriff walk his little pansy ass to the car. Are you saying Mr. Moss feels threatened? Or is that feeling guilt? All I can say is put your big boy pants on.....and quit whining.

I asked a question that you still didn't answer. I don't know how mr. Moss feels. That's not the point. Do you think what mr. Schoenbeck did was ok?

I like the mention of the fact he owns a gun shop, as if that has something to do with anything. Are individuals who own firearm stores inheretly more dangerous or unstable?
