Boone Investigation

Nice report. Why is it that nobody that Ms. Boone claimed witnessed the events in her testimony could recall anything when they were interviewed?

Either all her witnesses lied or the complainant was lying.

Evidently, some councilmembers are not supposed to ask any questions, research anything on their own, or have opinions for that matter(at least any that differ from Moritz, Freese, the Mayor or certain staff members!) We are supposed to keep our mouths shut and do what we are told! If I ask questions I am harassing employees. If I ask for materials, I am harassing. If I ask if someone has a license to do business, I am harassing. If I send emails to the people I know in the public, the contents must be investigated. So if I'm not supposed to ask any questions, am I just supposed to sit in my chair like a bump on a log and let all the "men" do the work? That ain't happening.
You used to be the one screaming 'back room deals'. Now you and your cronies are doing the covering up. Blocking payments because you disagree with the investigation results. It looks like power really does corrupt. Now you have the votes, and you're making the whole city look foolish.

What part of "it has been released to the public," don't you understand? I am not blocking payment because I disagree with the results. There are no results and if you read the investigation you will see that the conclusion reached by the investigator is not supported by any of the interviews. NONE OF THEM! I will guarantee you that I could find a sixth grade civics class that could do a much better job at investigating this matter and stay on point. The investigator strayed from questions pertinent to the investigation and went down a totally unrelated path when he started interrogating employees about me. I was not the subject of this investigation. Mrs. Kownacki was not the subject of this investigation. Miss Moss was not the subject of this investigation. Nothing is being hidden, you are mistaken.

You should be investigated because of your nonstop attempts to cover up the truth. And because of all the harrassment you unload on Arnold residents and businesses.

Investigate away. I am an open book. Not hiding a thing. You just don't like the fact that all of this is coming out. I want it ALL to come out, every last bit of it.

Besides being a mean spirited, out of control councilwoman, who enjoys meddling in other people's business and harrassing residents citywide, with a penchant for distorting facts --- what else is it that you want us to know about you?

You know what they say about opinions... as usual you have no valid argument so you resort to names calling...that means I win again!:)

I think you need to talk to the city attorney and the Mayor. They not only allow it but the attorney actually participates himself! The Mayor would never allow people to talk to his wife as he allows the male council members to talk to the female council members. He should also not allow the council to talk down to the public, but he does that himself so he sees nothing wrong with it.

I don't see the male councilmembers participating in any worse behavior than the female councilmembers. They're a batch of hoosiers who make the city look worse and worse every time they open their mouths. Doris and her ilk are particularly egregious in that vein. It seems like every week she's done something ridiculous that gets featured in the Leader.

Here's a tip, Doris: the idea that any media coverage is good coverage doesn't apply to elected officials (see: Todd Akin). Quit with the shenanigans already!

Maybe you should look at the council videos. Those meetings are out of control! Mr. Moritz literally snickered at the citizen complaining of his rude actions. Mr. Freese dressed down a reporter, Mr. Amato sounds like a beehive the way he drones on and on. The Mayor snaps at people, council and citizens. I don't hear the women talking like that. The shenanigans are being performed by the stooges that have been around in the boys club for so long. Time for them to shuffle down the road and say goodbye.

The only 'boy' who has caused trouble appears to be Mr. Moss.
Mr. Moritz is defending the rights of a woman, Ms. Boone.

Mr. Moritz is very disrespectful and condescending to women unless they agree with his point of view.

I think it is blatantly obvious by the shoddy investigation that it was all a sham to rid moss. They wanted to appoint someone in his seat.
Boondoggle is a huge joke and is in on it.. She never filed a real complaint and that weasel sweeney is lying to the public in the newspaper.
What a bunch of scam artist !!!!!

One of the best descriptions of the report so far, short of reading it yourself. But don't take his word for it. DO read it yourself!

I am blessed to have a wonderful job, working with talented and very well educated professionals. A coworker recently asked where I lived, and when I told him he laughed. Laughed.

In the past Arnold had the reputation of being a town filled with backwoods hillbillies with most folks having a minimal education at best. We, as residents fought hard against those stereotypes and became a City that I personally could be proud to say that I lived in.

And now all this bs and nonsense. THIS is what people now think Arnold is about. A bunch of power hungry, over grown children bickering and fighting. Your childish behavior is not just broadcast in Arnold, it is also known elsewhere in the area and it is embarrassing.

Enough already. Stop airing all your dirty laundry in the press, stop whining and complaining and name calling. Grow the hell up. You were elected to do a job and THIS is not what you were elected to do.

The dirty laundry will cease to be hung out when the wash machine gets fixed and can adequately purge all the slime and sludge from years of corruption that has built up over these many years. If you want to help eradicate these blood sucking leeches, don't be embarrassed, be proactive and help get them out of there. Until the profiteers of corrupt deals past are flushed out into the open this will not stop.

Doris, Please do not make it a sexist issue. It is a competency issue. And I side with you.

Aside from the one vote I am entitled to, I am not sure what else I can do to help get the situation under control.

Mr. Big,
There are more issues but there is most definitely a sexist issue! Mr. Moritz has made that quite clear, maybe you haven't read the emails, but I would be happy to forward them to you. According to him one of the female council members doesn't have an original thought in her head, one needs to take the fence post out of her, well, you you know and well I just am crazy witch number 78! There are many other similar references in writing, some more than derogatory than others, some more sexist than others, but all aimed at the female members of the council. Watch some meetings and see how the female members are addressed by the Mayor and the male council members. They assume superiority interrupt, dismiss and discount when they so choose.
Now, I am not going to have that much time to devote to this site as I have in past elections, but I will post from time to time. If you have any questions, feel free to email or message me on facebook and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
