FAIRHOPE’S BLAST FROM THE PAST

The Fairhope’s political Zoo is alive and well. Their is a full blown blast from the past party going on. The party goers are former City Council persons, Catalyst Council persons, three bees, fired employees, employees who quit, a skunk, W.A.C.O am radio, and of course Chucky Cheeze. This blast from the past now wants to reshape Fairhope’s government. They have all failed at their former positions however have united their wisdom to bless the City of Fairhope with their version of “new” government. Uniting their wisdom was necessary.

As usual they started with a plan that they quickly changed once they saw they would loose control, instead of gaining control, of Fairhope’s government.

The three bee’s are totally against any change, they know to hold on to power, and continue on the gravy train, they must keep the City elections “at large.” At large enables Catalyst to come up with slates of candidates and deceive the voters

The Mayor’s recommendation, that reduces the Mayors “power”, is to support the council/manager form of government that has only two, at large positions, Mayor and one Council person and three councilpersons representing three districts. This has been discussed for years but City Council’s in the past enjoyed NOT being responsible to anyone. At large means just that “at large” not one council person is responsible to any one area or district in town. The end result is citizens find it hard to get any councilperson to accept responsibility for anything, they can stay hidden.

The Mayor is putting the City first. The City Council is putting themselves first.

Fairhope has a bee problem. King bee Council Jack Burrell has so much luggage he can hardly walk.

First is his Airport Scandal and his ability to keep the Airport out of the City’s hands. Folks the Airport smells worse than a skunk.

Jack also has several allegations involving his drinking. He got in an argument, in front of witnesses, while drunk, at a local bar, McSherry’s, and threaten the owner, “ that he was a councilman and would shut them down.” Seems like the owner and Jack kissed and made up because McSherry’s now has a J. Burrell sandwich on the menu. I would not recommend it.

The second Bee is no other than grandpa Catalyst, Kevin Boone, father of Scott Boone the head of the snake, Catalyst. Boone is infamous for his relationship to John Avant of Prebble Rish. Prebble Rish supported Papa Boone for office and contributes to the Catalyst cause, themselves. Mr Boone has more llc’s than a zebra has stripes.

Boone is a loyalist to the former Mayor, Can’t, and has openly pledged not to work with Mayor Wilson for any reason. He is the conduit to the Courier”s scribbler editor, Chuckee Cheese. Boone filters all his knowledge about the city to his son, baby Boone, and Chuckee then comes up with tabloid news. Boone’s connections go back 30 years and God only knows how much money he has fleeced from Fairhope. Rumor is authorities are now interested in who all Boone has stung.

Since being elected, Brown has hit the honey hole. First he secured soccer field contracts and then went onto pool his connections to the Single Tax Colony. Brown’s construction business partner is Cliff Pittman, a director of Single Tax. Mr Pittman voted for the contribution to the Art Center from the Single Tax. He also recommended that the contractor to be used by Single Tax should be a Fairhope Contractor. PAY ATTENTION Mr Brown is a councilman and on the Board of the Art Center. HE HAD INSIDE INFORMATION ON THE SINGLE TAX CONTRIBUTION. Mr Brown then took a page out of the Jack Burrel playbook on how to award a contract. Brown appoints himself the person in charge to get bids for the Art Center work. He reports back to the board that he could not find a Fairhope contractor, he got NO bids, so he awarded the bid to himself and Cliff Pittman. That is a sweetheart deal.

He now faces Ethics charges, which usually carry’s little or no weight, however this is an election year and certain candidates have been made aware of Brown’s antics and seem interested in, “How in the hell does that happen in Fairhope”.

Mr. Brown is enjoying those profits and is building a new home on Fly Creek, what irony!

The three Bee’s are, and have been stinging Fairhope for years, this is our Council leadership? For the last 18 months the council’s only achievement is obstruction. This Council should prove, to even the most ignorant, that the “At Large” is not working. Three Council members are holding the City hostage!

The Ripp Report prediction is that one or more of the present Fairhope City Council will Not serve out their term.

Fairhope can choose to follow the loser mentality, supporting at large elections, which allows the loser’s to slate candidates in elections. This will change nothing and the City will be held back at a time we need to move forward.

The Council/Manager Government with the Mayor and one City council person at large and three council seats, representing districts is a move forward.

BEWARE OF THE FAIRHOPE BEE’S, THEY STING

Is there any way to insure the district version versus the at-large version of government?

Francis Ripp

fight the council

Anonymous

all petitions must be turned in by 4:30 judge of probate fairhope satellite office – NOT turned into zunk the skunk because he is going to hold on the the petition until after the deadline in an effort to keep council at large. It’s confusing but it has been an orchistrsted undermining effort from a group of special interests who are NOT interested in what citizens want.

Ruger

Burrell is shameless. His son?

Bay gazer

Ripp published this “police report”. Two of the items are sealed juvenile records. Jacks son shares the same name. You connect the dots. Ripp is a swine for dragging a council members family into any of this.

Citizens

Just ask the Kids that attend Fairhope High School and they will tell you that a certain kid tells them that he won’t get punished for anything wrong that he does “my Daddy is the President of the Fairhioe Council”. By the way, ask them about this kid and Jack Burrell. Not much difference.

Anonymous

You people (honky mofos) have selective eyesight! Look at the damn report closely. The other incidents are KNOWN incidents involving Daddy Jack! Not the son! Youpeople are nuts!! He is a diddler!

Jack defeats all comers.

Its in the pipeline…

Fact

When does it matter what Ripp posts. The entire Council is showing everyone plain as day that they do not give a shit about anyone but themselves. They all depend, just like the Catalyst, that all you people who really care continue to be Stupid and not go and vote. So the entire Council has shown they do not care about ethics. Follow up on some of these articles or go to the Council meetings and ask them for yourselves. They have no ethical boundaries. Yet they still screw us every chance they get. Bay Gazer, ask around, young or old, anyone with the name Jack Burrell in Fairhope is a F ing prick. Apple does not fall from the tree. I’m sure if you have kids, they are they same way.

I don’t know how many of y’all are following Fresh Start Fairhope’s page but they are a sly bunch and surely up to no good. Take for example this most recent post: https://www.facebook.com/afreshstartforfairhope/posts/1012692708907394 Note the question posed and the non-answer. I predict they will NOT provide an answer to her question. Why? I don’t know but I do know this: their wheels are still turning and they are looking at a sneaky way to somehow secure at-large council positions. There is back-room maneuvering going on right now, mark my words.

Denny

So now they come clean. From their Facebook page:

Freshstartfairhope – Thank you for your questions and comments regarding the Fresh Start Fairhope petition form, and its difference from the one being circulated by the Mayor. As we discussed in our meeting last Thursday night, and which was confirmed at the City Council meeting Monday night, both petitions are approved.

The Fresh Start Fairhope volunteers and supporters voted to seek At-Large council representation under the Council/City Manager system, whereas the Mayor’s petition specifies the so-called Districting plan. That is the substantive difference between the two. As for specific wording used on the Fresh Start Fairhope petition, we have conformed to legal requirements.

Thank you for your continuing participation in this grassroots voter process.

Districts equal accountability!

Sign the petition and turn in by this Friday to judge of probate! Word on the street is Fresh Start is STALE!
They are planning not to turn in their petitions, so council will stay at large.
Time to FLUSH this “AT LARGE” council system!

Don’t let Catalyst “ZUNK” you!

Catalyst cash requires at large cronies.

Does anyone know if either of these petitions have garnered enough signatures yet and, if not, can they be combined if necessary so that we can vote on this?

If you agree, would you please sign? And share? Thank you!

Fairhope will be skunked if we stay with council at large

Catalysts usually get their way. They are very connected. They go to church, play golf, and work together. Whatever change happens, the “Machine” will manipulate the process to suit them.
Backed by big real estate money that places politicians in office, whatever petition is signed will only be a confirmation of their power.
