I can smell your BS a mile away Jerry. Glad to see you resort to name calling,,,, when will I get your apology? Oh that's right you don't work for the Newstime any longer. Why did Karen get elected? In my opinion it's only because she spent more money on ad's. She knows nothing about political office and what it takes to run a city so this should be fun to watch, in a sad way. Now that the election is over will you stop badgering the LSL Forum Site Owner so he can turn on his forum again for open two-sided dialog? That is without the bias, lies and smear campaining that you Watchers do?  (Apr 9, 2010 | post #8)

BobJim (or should I say Jerry), Nice post above "The group that wants to let every member of the CA have a vote- like the CA rules state. Not to only graft money from members then allow them to vote." ARE YOU STILL FIGHTING FOR DEADBEATS TO HAVE VOTING RIGHTS? AS THE CA BOARD HAS STATED NUMEROUS TIMES, THEY DO MAKE SPECIAL CONSIDERATION FOR PEOPLE IN DIRE FINANCIAL CONDITION. Here's another quote from you above "Either way- bigotted Charlotte Norton is gone and can fade away now." YOU COULD NOT BE MORE WRONG - CHARLOTTE WAS THE BEST ALDERMAN THIS TOWN HAS SEEN IN A LONG TIME. SHE IS NOT A BIGOT, AND YOU DON'T LIKE HER BECAUSE SHE EXPOSED SOME OF THE HIDDEN AGENDAS OF THE WATCHERS. SO NOW THAT YOU HAVE FOUND ANOTHER WEBSITE THAT DOES NOT AGREE WITH YOUR OPINIONS,,,, ARE YOU GOING TO TRY TO GET THIS ONE SHUT DOWN ALSO? KAREN WAS PART OF A GROUP THAT TRIED TO HYJACK THE CA, I JUST HOPE THAT IS NOT HER PLAN FOR THE CITY. SHE IS CLEARLY IN OVER HER HEAD AS YOU CAN TELL BY HER POOR ANSWERS AND LACK OF UNDERSTANDING OF CITY POLITICS AT THE MEET THE CANDIDATES NIGHT. SHE HAS BIG SHOES TO FILL REPLACING CHARLOTTE AND I HOPE SHE DOES NOT WASTE THE CITY'S MONEY THE WAY SHE WASTED THE CA'S ON THAT JOKE OF PETITION/ELECTION!  (Apr 9, 2010 | post #6)

LSL CA Watchers - Costing Us More $$

I'd encourage you to attend some BOD Meetings and speak your mind. You will be surprised how the BOD does listen to your needs.  (Mar 15, 2010 | post #10)

The difference is the CA BOD was elected, so you can call them a special interest group that's special interest is representing the CA members who elected them. There are many people who support limiting the BOD's approval power to spend money (including me), but when the Watchers threw all of the other six items on the ballot they lost the support of many of the people who signed the petition. I agree with your comments about all special intrest groups - my family pays the $450 and uses the lakes, pools, golf course, etc. I knew this when I bought the house so I have no problem with it. So yes I am part of many special interest groups that make this a great community. My problem with the Watchers is they claim to NOT be a special interest group which is clearly not the case by the way they demanded the 8 items on the ballot. So, my question of you is why did you move within the CA Boundries if you did not want to pay for the CA fees?  (Mar 15, 2010 | post #8)

Gladstone, I just took the time to read your post again and want to clarify something I said above. The CA's Money is OUR money,,, as in all of the CA Members money. So an additional cost of $35K+ plus whatever this latest legal action is going to be is going to cost ALL of our members their money which could be put to better use. Please encourage your special interest group (the Watchers) to drop this whole thing as get more involved in the community to make change.  (Mar 15, 2010 | post #6)

Gladstone, I agree with "A resident".... the CA Membership voted down the fee increase without the Watchers help. I am not an employee or CA Board Member, just a concerned CA Member that does not like being manipulated by this special interest group (The Watchers). The Watchers claim they speak for the petition signers, but the petition I signed only had two items. The Watchers Board added six additional items without consulting the petition signers. Then they attempted to manipulate the election by biased reporting in the Newstime and fear mongering and lies spread via emails and their website. THEY cost our CA Membership $35K for this election, and now they have sour grapes over the lost election, so they are threatening another lawsuit. What will this cost? Isn't this money better spent on the CA Membership? God forbid you question these folks or disagree with their irrational ideas. When you do they claim you are a CA BOD sympathizer. The funny thing is they are doing many of the same things they complain the CA BOD has done in the past. If this group truly wants to improve the CA, they should get involved, volunteer their time like the other people they claim are hurting us.  (Mar 14, 2010 | post #5)

Looks like the Watchers are threatening another lawsuit based on their lost election. They already cost the CA $35K, now they want cost the CA memebership more. If you want change, get more involved!  (Mar 12, 2010 | post #1)
