My scope as a Director is to protect the people from a tyranical government bent on doing things illegally....

The Board of Directors have been doing things illegally for years, so why would I even give a damn about a "censure" from these lawbreakers?

So you are accusing the current seated SCSD Board of breaking the law? Are you claiming that they are criminals or felons? You spin a good yarn, but have not, at least to me proven that they are lawbreakers. You remind me of the little boy that cried "wolf", when it really will matter... no one will listen, kinda like now. Either put up or shut up, stop saying the same thing over and over, you know what happens with broken records; they get tossed with the trash!

I do not need to prove a thing to you....the law and the facts do that for me.

oh rest assured that people are listening... that's one reason the rest of the Directors get nervous when I "blabber mouth". Otherwise they wouldn't have spent so much time and the peoples money trying to shut down www.saltonseawest.com and Director Barrett. I'm sure you remember that a district employee (Rosa Reagles) and an accomplice stole copyrighted material from said mentioned website. And then there were several "serial" board meetings, in violation of the Brown Act, during the 6 month period that the SCSD spent thousands of dollars on lawyers trying to justify that illegal theft.

And lest us not forget the removal of the "public forum" bulletin board from the exterior office wall and the public literature table inside the office all because certain directors and management didn't like saltonseawest flyers on them.

And then theirs the issue of the Sewer Standby Fee...let's see you hoodlums wiggle out of that illegal activity.

"Attendee" my butt; your up to your ankles in this too.

So now you’re saying that SCSD District Employee Rosa Reagles is a thief? That the SCSD Board covered up her illegal activities? How come there was no police report filed? No inquiry of your charges against Mrs. Reagles of the SCSD Board? Why is it we "the public" must take your words as actuality? Why is there no public record of these events if they are true and correct?

BTW Director Barrett, your major predicament has been and continues to be your dealings with the human race, and the fact you make too many assumptions and see gloom where there’s none. Hate to fracture your supposition for you, but my ankles are very uncontaminated. You know what they say when you fail miserably; try, try again …

I do have a stack of invoices from the Districts lawyers which include descriptions of the services that were provided by their law firm.

You'd be amazed at how much money was spent on trying to extort Salton Sea West copyrighted material from the wife and I.

And yes I DID say extort. Look up the legal definition.

I could show you the copies I obtained through the Freedom of Information Act if you’d like. They show a timeline of events that immediately follow the copyright theft.

I even have copies showing the stolen copyrighted material as it appeared on the SCSD website after Rosa Reagles stole it from www.saltonseawest.com and uploaded it to the district website.

And how do you know no police report or complaint was filed?

And also it is very curious how you avoided the other issue I wrote about in my last post, that being the Districts removal of a public forum. Care to weigh in on that issue?

I see tonight that Topix removed Director Barrett as an Editor of the Salton City Page.

That was after several complaints were filed with them I'm sure.

If he continues to attack people in the forums, please continue to report the abuse.

If he continues as he has, they will finally BLOCK his IP address from accessing Topix all together. That doesn't mean he can't go to the Salton City Library and log on.. but it does mean that he would have to travel there after work to spread his hate.

But the good thing about him being removed as an Editor is, he can't spread his lies from that awful webs**t to this section anymore.

He brought this upon himself, maybe he should heed the lesson here that he has been given. But I know that he won't.

*hand Director Barrett some coffee so he does not end up a casualty on HWY 86 on his way to work in Niland.*

or maybe it's a good day to call in "sick" take some pain pills and go into the SCSD office and go in Saturday at "time and a half"

Director Barrett it's not that people don't want to hear the truth, they want it to be the truth.

You have a venue to keep spreading what you think is truth, as the Community; we have a CHOICE to either visit YOUR Webs**t or not.

When you were posting your lies here as facts, we couldn't avoid them as you kept killing stories and placing them on top of legit fact filled stories for our Community.

People listen better when items are shared: not heaved down their throats, also when there’s communication between the Community and the SCSD Board of Directors, which sad to say has never happened with you since you came to the Board.

Director Barrett you have done more damage than any other Director in the 50+ years of the history of the SCSD. You are the only Director that has been censured TWICE in a 6-month period.

The lesson here is simple: no one will take you seriously in this current vein. You will not be re-elected, life will return to normalcy, and the Community will breath a big sigh of relief when your self imposed righteousness is not in our face; day after day, month after month, and year after year. I’m hoping for a huge party the day you leave office, maybe I should plan it.

Hey come to the meetings, better yet find someone that will run against the village idiot. The more people that become involved in the process the harder it is for Director Barrett's lies to be taken as truth.
