The mayor of Fairhope, Karin Wilson, is living up to her promises to the citizens who elected her. She has been assailed by her critics from day one. The city council has taken on an obstructionist position towards the mayor and has even refused to mediate their differences, through attorneys, claiming they are the mediators. Problem with that is, they are not mediating a damn thing, and the city is the loser.

Many people do not realize that the mayor elected to accept only the salary allotted for the mayor. In the past the mayor held two positions and received two paychecks, Mayor Wilson felt this was not ethical and refused the second position in spite of it reducing her pay by 60,000 dollars. That is called ETHICS. The council refused to consider a fair salary for the mayor, that is being obstructionist and unfair.

In spite of efforts by fired and disgruntled employees, those facing ethics investigations, and employees who have quit, the mayor has pressed on.

She has not shied away from broaching issues considered sacred cows in the past, such as the airport, marina, library, infrastructure and growth. In the last 16 years Fairhope citizens knew little of any of these subjects, especially financial information.

A major accomplishment is the restructuring of the planning department and planning and zoning. I will be first to tell you that I did not think she could accomplish such a feat in 2 or 3 years much less 8 months. This is a huge win for the citizens of Fairhope as most of the more serious litigation the city has faced in the past all originated from planning and planning and zoning. A new planning director and operations manager is another win. Planning and zoning has been restructured with new members and hopefully the foolish and bias decisions of the past are history.

This has been accomplished under the most stressful of circumstances with the council fighting any change. Those that lost their jobs, quit or face ethics charges brought that on themselves and have accomplished nothing more than holding the city back.

Is the mayor going to make mistakes, stick her foot in her mouth or make some bad decisions, you bet. But her toughest critic is herself, and they will be HONEST mistakes. Her opponents want to throw her out of office without an election or just cause, while ignoring the first โ€œfairโ€ election in Fairhope.

The major obstacle Mayor Wilson faces is cooperation from the council, however this will not stop her from representing the citizens as she promised. Please try and separate the petty rumors from facts, and the mole hills from mountains, that are circulated by her opponents.

It is hard for some to accept the fact that Fairhope is becoming a level playing field and business as usual stopped with the last election. Mayor Wilson is honest and will not sell her soul or betray Fairhope citizens.

Fairhope is changing for the better, get involved with city government contact your council and tell them to do their job and let the โ€œHardest Working Elected official- on the Eastern Shoreโ€ do her job.

    Keep the high road Mayor Wilson. Fairhope will give you eight.

      I want to thank the killer B’s (Burell, Boone, and Brown) and the J’s squared (Jay and Jimmy) for keeping this city together as the Queen tries to destroyed what Kant, Boone, and Burell and others helped build. The council has stood firm when the Queen threatened to sue US and the council. I love the article about the IT technician, he is standing his ground. I wonder how many invoices the Queen has changed or has altered? If you trying to hide one you will hide others!
      I was at a meeting today in Mobile, the Governor was there, I had a side bar with one of the professors – she made this statement “I have heard about your mayor, ya’ll have your hands full, is crazy or what?” That was her direct quote.
      So sad for Fairhope!

          Here is how that award is given – first anyone can nominate someone, then when they select individuals that have been nominated in an anonymous vote, then they are awarded based on people voting, but, you can vote multiple times as in every 2 – 3 hours. In other words, if you have 25 people nominate someone, and then there are 3 or 4 people selected for the nominations, then if you have 25 – 50 people vote every 2 – 3 hours, well, you win! This mayor is the most self-serving, full of crap person around. On her Facebook page, she posted an article that was bought and paid for, if you fall for her lies then shame on you! All those votes were NOT a cumulative for the mayor! I put whiskey in the punch bowl so we all could have fun!!!!

        JESTER, I still have the veterans crisis hotline since you seem to need it. Must be off your meds or you haven’t called yet. It’s very important that you call since you seem to have put other people in harms way besides yourself. And if you are not a veteran you are certainly a disgrace to the entire human race with all that talk about wing man and all the missions you said you have flown. You are sick Jester and we want to help. If you take yourself out without letting us help you. Well, we are trying to contact you. Even you have admitted that you need help. Please let us help you. Will not cost you a penny! We will even come get you.

          Jester. You stated seeing combat and holding at certain levels and your military service was immoral and getting to you. Why don’t you let the Veterans Administration help. You are certainly a sick person and you talk as you have no problem with taking your own life. I’ll stay away from that one. You should at least for your family and friends? Get some help. There is no doubt that you need it. And you seem to shy away from the idea of getting some help. Why??? Can’t say you don’t. And anybody that thinks you don’t should check into what the harbor at Thomas Hospital can offer them.

    Thank you, Mayor! Thank you, Paul Ripp. And to her detractors, this is pretty much proof positive that no matter what they claim or how many times they say she’s losing support, the loudest complainers are the vocal minority.

          Well, Thelma, by your logic, Fairhope has now had 3 mayors and all 3 are crooks!

        • Anonymous | July 22, 2017 at 1:24 pm |

          Well, according to Thelma, Fairhope is only about 40 years old. I guess those guys like Greeno and numerous other Mayors did not count. Thelma is probably not from here, so anyone before her magical appearance did not really exist.

    • Jester Triple-Six | July 21, 2017 at 8:02 pm |

      I guess when there is all this bad news, any good bits helps. This not a featured article and maybe now she will stop saying the media is bias. She has to be the hardest working politician on the Eastern Shore, she has harmed more people and divided our community more than anyone in our city’s history. So she gets mentioned, and it was at the bottom of the article. How many featured stories have been negative for Fairhope, almost of them. Ripp grabs anything that can possibly show something good, but there is another story published today, and once again it has caught our fair Queen in a lie. I can not wait to see how Ripp and the Queen try to spend the other article! Oppps!

      • Article today out of GCN is clear evidence of witness tampering by the Mayor. She is clearly trying to silence Tanner. He has the goods on her and she got her lapdog lawyer to fire off a baseless threatening letter. She is too stupid to realize the Council has to authorize legal action on behalf of the city. That will never happen. Not to mention Tanner did not breach any agreement or disclose anything. Tanner … tell it baby. Lay the cards on the table and call the mayor’s BS bluff. She needs to go down and in cuffs if necessary.

        • B. Allen, I agree and this is why Ripp has soft peddled on this edition. He realizes the mayor has made too many mistakes and she has some real liability. She very well could get indicted on charges like this. This kid is holding his ground as he should. She is getting what she sowed!

          I have no idea of the facts here, but I have read Gulf Coast News Todays’ report and I have to say that Tanner Bonner sounds illiterate. I don’t know if he has been misquoted or if he is truly as stupid and uneducated as his comments appear. It is not his opinion that matters, only the facts, and he can’t even put together a coherent sentence. Is he 20 and on drugs? Also, the letter came from the Fairhope City attorney, NOT an attorney for the Mayor so he should at least get his own facts straight. Pitiful!

        • Truth Teller | July 24, 2017 at 9:26 am |

          I’m wondering if any progress has been made on the investigation of she and her brother in law defrauding the Grand Hotel? I’m hoping that the media has just been too busy running down her other misdeeds this week, but will double back on it

            • Truth Teller | July 25, 2017 at 9:28 am |

              Georgia Orwell – You don’t know him very well then. So if you’re “nice” you don’t commit fraud? I’ve seen the membership directory with my own eyes. Heard them brag about it with my own ears. Went on for at least 8 years. One issue had all 5 of “their” kids even listed on it. I know lots more about lovely Mr. Lyons, but since he has not sought public office, no need to bring it up. This is only brought up because of the Mayor’s involvement.

              • Georgia Orwell | July 25, 2017 at 9:37 pm |

                Why not leave the ‘uninvolved’ (your word) out of it then? You are right; I don’t know him well, but I have interacted with him for several years at his business and I think that he is one of the nicest people in Fairhope. Please leave him and his children alone. Mayor Wilson may be a bit ‘confrontational, but please give her family a break……they do not deserve this constant abuse.

                • Truth Teller | July 26, 2017 at 8:15 am |

                  Her family have been some of the most verbally abusive folks on social media. What, they can dish it out, but can’t take it? And I didn’t say anything about their kids (just that their names were listed, come on) and of course if you are in his business spending money he’s going to be nice to you. Customer service 101….

            • Truth Teller | July 25, 2017 at 11:07 am |

              I guess my comment got deleted AGAIN…So if someone is “nice” they don’t commit fraud? Wrong. I saw the membership rosters with my own eyes. One year even listed all 5 of “their” children. Being local business owners themselves makes it even worse. It’s only come out because she is now Mayor, and has accused everyone else of corruption and misdeeds. I hope it’s being investigated to the fullest.

              So defrauding a local business (one that brings a lot of other business to our town) out of close to $25,000 isn’t a “real” crime?

              • Hey Truth Teller. If you know of this being a fact. Then go down to the Fairhope and file a complaint. Chicken shit. You wouldn’t know the truth if it ran over you. Coward. Do something about it instead of just taking space. Let’s go!!!

                • Truth Teller | July 26, 2017 at 1:31 pm |

                  Um “Anonymous”, I can’t file the complaint because the crime wasn’t committed against me. However, my goal is to bring it to the attention of someone who is actually in a position to file the complaint, and I’m not the only one working on it. But keep calling me names. Keeps that motivation level up!

        “She has harmed more people and divided our community more than anyone in our cityโ€™s history.” This is typical of so much of what Jester posts and why no one puts any credence in anything he spews. Jester, you cannot make a personal opinion truth, much as you would like to. Maybe folks would pay more attention to you if you didn’t consistently put forth personal opinions to try and make others think something that is false. You are a poor writer and a worse debater and that why I can only read the first couple of sentences of everything you write because the rest is going to be all about what you think instead of reality. And frankly, I think most of us are pretty sick and tired of listening to what you think.

    Dear Goobers,

    Did you sign up to run for City Council to make Fairhope a better place, or just to line your pockets with the help of the former mayor?

    The answer to this question will decide your immediate fate.

    Did you ever anticipate Paul Ripp’s ability to expose your wicked ways here, in the court of public opinion?

    Truth hurts.

    Do you know Paul Ripp has been sued multiple times and has an undefeated record in various Baldwin County courts?

    Batting a .1000 boyz…

    Did each of you know (this includes you Jay “Twinkletoes” Robinson and you Jimmy “sticky fingers” Conyers (banker)) that Paul Ripp has a string of regular informants inside the city, inside the courts, at the surviving newspapers, etc?

    Did each of you know Ripp has been speaking for months to multiple federal, state and paid private investigators about each of you, your extensive backgrounds, your business and personal interests, hobbies and habits, misdeeds, etc.?

    The dossier is thick–and juicy…and unpublished.

    Are you boyz ready for war?
    Ripp is.

    And the competitive advantage is his.

    Enjoy fighting uphill. Ripp has the moral high ground.

    Strike fast…strike hard fans…prepare yourselves for total destruction.

    Remember each of you individuals chose this path to serve your own interests. This is the path you chose.

    Also, you may want to put a leash on Robert.
    He obviously knows nothing of cyber sleuthing, Internet Service Providers and
    real flesh informants.

    Forewarned is forearmed boyz. Ripp is like the sun. He keeps coming back.
    He won’t stop until he has you in shackles–where you legally belong.

        The Ripp Report is like the Legal Schnauzer, Shuler posted lies and more lies, while in Shelby County, AL, he was arrested in Shelby County, filed ethic complaint after ethic complaint, sued and sued but ended up in jail. Filed Bankruptcy, then off to Missouri where was originally from and they were evicted from their home there and not he is in Canada. And guess what, he is still crying to this day!
        Forewarned boyz and girlz, Jester has been at this game a long time. Ripp is about to get named a public figure, the flood gates will open wide!!! All we want is for him to be named a public figure! AND that is coming soon!

          I was deemed by the Judge to be a public figure in the lawsuit against Fairhope Times, I won that lawsuit, last year. The bar association recognized me as a reporter and refused to discuss complaints against Attorneys.The Ripp Report is a non profit consumer group exposing corruption in the most corrupt state in the U S and the most corrupt county in Alabama. Fairhope was the most corrupt municipality in the county, no more because Timmy is gone. ha ha chew on that.

          • Jester Triple-Six | July 22, 2017 at 11:48 pm |

            That was not the issue in that case if he had filed a counter claim asking the judge if you were a public figure. The judge stated that since that was not part of the suit, so he ruled in your favor over the Times. The Times used that as part of their defense but did not file a counter claim. That is why the Times paid you $500 and move on. If you have been claimed a public figure then the door would be open on you, folk can say what they want about you. But the Judge said he would have named you a public figure if he could have ruled but that was not at issue. If you are a public figure anyone can say anything they choose about you. But you have not been named a public figure, yet. The Alabama Bar can say what they want, it is what a judge stated that matters. If you are a reported then you need to report and stop being a political arm for the mayor. Roger thought he was a reporter too, but a judge ruled he was a blogger and we saw how that ended. Alabama Department of Revenue and the IRS may want to look at the political activities on this site??? You are a blogger! Now, ha ha chew on that!

You deleted several posts from that edition comment section. There is a post to defend this questionable action, May 14, 2017, 10:51 AM.
      Sorry, but I have all the post of the editions where I post a comment and I use to post anonymously then went my current handle in June. Now you know why I had to choose to capture the posts on all editions where I have posted.
      So, yes, you or another administrator of the site have deleted posts before. Did not really want to call you out on this but you seem to want to try and tie me to certain posts. This goes to your intent and you have deleted post(s) [emphasis added] before!

    • Anonymous | July 23, 2017 at 4:05 pm |

      I wondered if that was true (the same person posting under various names). And it does make sense. When people feel their opinion (about anything) is in the minority they tend to want to inflate their position by posting numerous times as different people, and by using phrases like “everyone I talk to thinks…”, “residents all know that…” and other completely false statements. This is a noticeable trait of Jester and others who post here routinely.

  5. Jack wants you to believe he is working harder than Karin for the citizens.

    Citizens.

    Citizens.

    LOL.

    Back to miss state!!

    Jester posted 17 more times after he said he wouldn’t !!! So much for elementary school stuff and climbing and holding at 6. Fairhope giving Mayor Wilson 8. All these numbers…. All these innuendos…
    Don’t underestimate the little man.

    The lift stations that lift crap and sewage across the hills of the city have no generators. When the big hurricane hits Fairhope will get the shits.

    Thanks to Jack and his cronies (goobs) on the council. Twelve million bucks…poof…kickbacks baby…kickbacks.

    It’s why the goobs exist.

    Jack Burrell…the pal of Pittman…they kneel each week and pray for their friends in high places to run interference for their crimes…Jack is working now to get Tripp the hurricane debris removal contract…illegally…while trip runs for U.S. Senate. Corruption Fairhope Style…pretty disgusting folks. Your fine Christians at “work” for the citizens.

      Don’t worry. They will both not elected. They are just praying for forgiveness for being such terrible human beings and how sorry they treat all of us on a daily basis. The should be praying that every morning, noon and at night. No two bigger liars in Alabama. Chris Elliott is a close third. Tripp Pittman will not even get 10% of the total of votes cast. Wished Jack Burrell would run for Mayor. That would be two bad eggs knocked out with one swing.

      • Georgia Orwell | July 24, 2017 at 9:19 pm |

        I wish that I agreed that they would not be elected…..I fear that they will (but not with my vote).

    • Jester Triple-Six | July 24, 2017 at 11:51 pm |

      IF we need D&J Enterprises and let’s all pray we won’t, they will be worried more about the tornadoes in Auburn that getting down to Fairhope. What should have been looked at this company’s other contracts they have with different cities, then we would see just low of priority Fairhope will be if we need them. At Least Pittman lives here, and he is local and would care about getting us back in our homes because he knows most of us. But as with most issues, this mayor is making change for the sake of change. She is dumb, foolish and is slowly destroying the city. If she had not bid out the contracts the current contract will remain in place and it was cheaper. Type in these letters I.D.I.O.T. and look at the picture, it is our mayor! Smoke em’ if you have them!

      • Anonymous | July 25, 2017 at 7:00 am |

        You had better lay off ’em!
        It’s obvious you been smoking some powerful crap!!

      • Pittman has a horrible reputation in Fairhope b/c of his sub-standard work on the oil spill clean up. A lot of people may like him b/c he’s a fun guy, but I doubt many of us trust him to ever do the right thing if he can make more money doing the wrong thing.

      • Anonymous | July 25, 2017 at 3:24 pm |

        Jester, do you even proof read you own post before you put them up? Don’t even know why anyone would want to comment on anything that you post. I still haven’t and will not. I like to read good grammar, correct spelling and facts. That! You have not been able to provide.

        • Jester Triple-Six | July 25, 2017 at 11:10 pm |

          The greatest incentive for people to annex into the city of Fairhope is for the Mayor Wilson to resign then maybe some would annex! Did everyone watch the babbling fool try and explain something at the council meeting? Uh, and, giggle, uh, well, citiZens, well, uh oh, giggle, giggle, then she lied then lied more! “we do not have the budget for the police to take care of the city”…so let us pull back and lose the $1.5M then see what the budget the police looks like! Is she really that stupid!

      • Pittman is a senator.

        He doestn need public contracts.

        What is wrong with people around here? We do not owe trip a living!!

        Ignorant!!!

  12. Anyone catch jack burrells tantrum last night?

    Jack and the goobs were upset Mayor Karin blocked Trip Pittman from getting a fat multi-million dollar debris removal contract.

    Winning.

    Goobs lose.

    • The Mayor did a great job, I agree. I just looked up D&J Enterprises, the company that was awarded the contract. Its primary business is disaster recovery, which makes it infinitely more qualified to perform the work. Why did Jack Burrell have such a hissy fit? I have seldom seen such a public temper tantrum for no good reason!
      Hopefully, there will be no disaster from which to recover, but I feel that we are in better hands than when Pittman handled the last mess.

      • Jack has hitched his wagon to the sloth, pittman.

        I predict he will not even win Baldwin.

      • Anonymous | July 25, 2017 at 6:02 pm |

        The mayor needs to spend more time preparing her responses. Jack accused her of not wanting to award Pittman the contract, and that’s absolutely the truth, she didn’t. Nothing wrong with that reasoning due to Pittman’s substandard past work for the city. Most people in the city didn’t want to see Pittman awarded the contract either. Wilson should have had her facts together and that would have ended any further discussion. Instead, she rambled on about creating opportunities for others. I’m with her on rebidding the contract, but sheesh, she doesn’t communicate her position very well at all.

        • Georgia Orwell | July 25, 2017 at 7:44 pm |

          She doesn’t; she needs better educated and informed advisors. Her heart is in the right place but it appears that her staff is clueless and they don’t know how to prepare her. The Mayor did a great job, however, getting this contract bid out and having it awarded to a professional disaster recovery company. I agree with those who believe that Burrell behaved like a toddler having a tantrum. Pittman has made politics his career, so Fairhope is far better served by having someone else in charge of a dreaded disaster. Why does Burrell care so much? Didn’t Karin state that Pittman didn’t even throw in a bid? I am confused.

          • Jester Triple-Six | July 25, 2017 at 11:21 pm |

            Need to know the history of D&L Enterprises, then people may not be so happy. Botop may know the history, this but is not the same folks that help in the Katrina cleanup. They sold after making millions and millions on Katrina. Do people on here just take everything at face value?

      • Jester Triple-Six | July 25, 2017 at 11:17 pm |

        Did anyone watch the Fool Queen try and explain something? What a total IDIOT! That is a council meeting, not a town hall meeting, the Queen needs to learn some protocol, wait, first she has to learn to speak! What a babbling fool she is!

    • Anonymous | July 25, 2017 at 2:16 pm |

      That won’t be the last thing Tripp Pittman loses! Just got back from Montgomery and no one up there wants him back either. Maybe he will get on one of his tractors and ride out of Baldwin County for good!!!

  13. Anonymous | July 25, 2017 at 2:04 pm |

    Well we all know how Jester Triple-Six is so jealous of Mayor Wilson getting an award. Don’t worry Jester. You got an award from everyone in Fairhope. They just didn’t have room enough to print BIGGEST ASSHOLE….JESTER! Didn’t want you to feel left out since your feelings were hurt so badly.
    Congratulations from all of us!!! I know that you and your family are so proud. Those of us who know you are so excited too!

  14. Tonto Goldstein | July 25, 2017 at 3:44 pm |

    Why would Fairhope throw out the hardest working person in government?

    Goobs are doomed. Jack hasn’t a chinamens chance!!

  15. Crocodile Dundee ;) | July 26, 2017 at 3:01 am |

    I thought the work session and city council went well. I was not thrilled with Jack’s reaction to the Pittman contract but I’m sure I’ve acted like that before so I can’t fault him. A better way to look at that reaction is he is passionate about things he believes in. I can relate. We all have to tone it down.
    Thanks for handling the 3 foot monster gator in the duck pond. A toddler could get hurt and I’m sure that is not something anyone would want to happen. Sherry lea is going to work on a city sweeper rotation schedule to be posted on website and if there is standing water by your house call the public works office.
    A good night at city council
    I didn’t see any juggling, jingling or dancing.
    I believe your triple 6 is a “SQUAD” ( as my boys would say).

  16. Corruptionsick | July 26, 2017 at 10:15 am |

    Fairhope looks like a yokel hick town with burrell and the goobs plotting goob stuff. They prey on us after they pray. Wake up yo.???

  17. TrueGOPcolors | July 26, 2017 at 10:25 am |

    Anybody here have anything positive to sat about Pittman?

    I go to church with him. He is a fine Christian despite what Paul Ripp says behind a keyboard. I have broken bread with Trip. He wants to make Alabama the best state.

    Vote for the family man and the devout Christian on August 15th.

    Vote for your next U.S. Senator from the great State of Alabama…Lee “Trip” Pittman.

    Surging in the polls…and in your hearts.

    • I want what you are smoking. Tripp Pittman is a liar and a thief. You might have broken bread with him but he Pittman has broken it off in all of our asses. Stupid people like you don’t understand what a disgrace and lier Tripp Pittman is. You think that all the Autism people, their families and those of us who support them think Tripp Pittman is a caring and religious man. He could care less if any of the Autism people live or die. That’s money out of his pocket if he were to help them. Shame!!!! Don’t forget about the $750,000 he stole for doing a slelf serving contract for the BP Oil Spill with the only qualifications of being able to sell tractors and then left all the anchors out in the bay to continue to pollute our bays and waterways. Break Bread with Devil is something I wouldn’t brag about. Tripp Pittman makes me puke! Thieving bastard!

    • Surging Tripp Pittman’s Bank Accounts since he became the pitiful senator that he is. He’s done!!!! Surging in the polls of defeat!!!! What a joke!!!

    • Anonymous | July 26, 2017 at 9:07 pm |

      Obviously, this is tongue in cheek! Very clever!
      He stole from Baldwin County taxpayers……enough said. Move on.
      I am all for him moving on to greener pastures, but I love that he has become too big for Baldwin.
