THE FACE OF NO

FAIRHOPE

For 12 years The Ripp Report has been reporting on issues related to Fairhope. One thing that is perfectly obvious is that the way Fairhope has been governed, has not worked. It has not worked for the citizens, however it has been an overwhelming success for special interests, including Judges and CORRUPT elected officials.

Fairhope has come a long way in the last two years with the first FAIR election, monitored by the Sec. of State. The election of a new Mayor and a revamp of city supervisors and department heads. The back pocket accounting of our utilities has been replaced with accounting management that may deliver the city debt free by 2020.

The current Fairhope City Council is composed of Catalyst candidates and their legacy has been a council of indecision and obstruction. They have not approved a Fairhope City Budget, on time, since they were elected. They are “At Large” and now they wish for you to put your head up your ass and vote for no change in a government. They are THE FACE OF NO

THE FACE OF NO : Media, I use that term lightly, is Chuckee Cheeze, the editor of the Catalyst tabloid. Please boycott the Courier they have cost Fairhope a lot of money and embarrassment with their dishonest FAKE reporting.

THE FACE OF NO: The Catalyst Council and the Catalyst attorney panicked when they realized that the citizens were waking up. They postponed the election hoping for THE FACE OF NO:

Via the City of Fairhope Change of Government Referendum… VOTE NO!
I’ve run a city and a sudden change of this magnitude will alter the power structure of Fairhope in ways that may not be evident or fully understood on the surface, resulting in an unknown impact on the unique fabric of who we are as a community.
The City Manager will become the “de facto Mayor” because everything that needs to occur to run the city will go through them, and they are not an elected representative of the people.
The bottom line is this is a rushed process arising from the friction between the Mayor and City Council.
Follow this analogy, in a marriage that is dysfunctional, do you bring in another person to run the house because the two of you cannot work things out? Probably not.
In democracy, if you do not like the way things are working in government, you use the next election cycle to fix the problem. If you find through multiple election cycles a lack of progress because of continued dysfunctionality… then you change the form of government.
Effective governance comes down to servant and empathetic leadership and communication. Fairhope is and will remain a Great American City!

NO NO COLBY YOU SHOULD HAVE NEVER CUT DOWN THAT TREE, WERE YA THINKING NO THEN?

For those of you who do not know Mr. Cooper, or why he is THE FACE OF NO, let me help you get acquainted.

A Mobile government curiosity: Where is Colby Cooper?

A Mobile government curiosity: Where is Colby Cooper?

Cooper, the chief of staff to Mayor Sandy Stimpson, hasn’t been at a Mobile City Council meeting since he requested the City Council to be voted out of office in early March.

Cooper’s job was on thin ice in Mobile, then he got out his ax and cut the limb he was sitting on.

Chief of staff for Mobile mayor resigns 11 days after apologizing over tree for Trump rally

Chief of staff for Mobile mayor resigns 11 days after apologizing over tree for Trump rally

Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson has announced that he has accepted the resignation of his Chief of Staff Colby Cooper. Cooper sent out a tweet Thursday afternoon confirming the announcement as well.

Source: www.al.com/news/mobile/index.ssf/2016/12/colby_cooper_of_mobile_mayor_s.html

The 50 foot tree he choose to cut down was in The Medal of Honor Park. He resigned after 11 days of thousands of irate and highly pissed off, citizens telling him to get out of Mobile. Like many, once you’re kicked out of Mobile, you cross the bay to the Eastern Shore.

Now Mr Colby has brought his ax to Fairhope in support of a NO VOTE.

What is the backstory behind the former Chief of Staff, for the Mayor of Mobile, and what special interest does he represent?

First off where did Mr Colby decide to hang his ax?

Colby becomes the Chief Operating Officer for the Company that is owned by the Fairhope Municipal Judge and Fairhope Board member Ray Hix.

Well Colby while you were chopping that tree down in Mobile, Fairhope was knee deep in investigating the Fairhope Airport and Jack Burrell and Hix/Snederker about an airplane hanger bid.
You see Hix/Snederker needed a place to park their 1 million dollar corporate jet. It takes a hanger worth about 1 million to house the plane. Damn I do not know a municipal judge in Alabama that has a 1 million dollar jet and 1 million dollar hanger!

Colby you sold out to the 1% when you went to work for Special interests.

The RFP “bid” was handled by Airport Authority Board member Jack Burrell. This is the same Jack Burrell who flew on that private jet, BEFORE THE BID. Colby you may have even seen Jack in the passenger seat on one of the junkets to attend golf tournaments.

Source: rippreport.com/2016/11/25/you-dont-know-jack/

Jack Burrell is President of the Fairhope Catalyst “At Large” Council and board member of the Fairhope Airport Authority. He is responsible for holding the city hostage over the Airport. You see Jack thinks the taxpayers should pay for the Airport but that the Authority should hold the title.

Colby you, THE FACE OF NO, needs to put down that ax before you cut your special interest toes off.

Here is something to chew on folks, Fairhope does not need to be in the Airport business, especially when it services less than 1% of the population. Vote Yes to change the government, then dissolve the Airport Authority and lease the whole damn thing to private enterprise. Take the lease payments and dedicate them to education. Presently we spend more on the Airport than education, that is due to Special Interests.

Colby I know putting education first would not serve the special interest you represent but education should come before the 1%.

Surprised about Catalyst

Catalyst is one smart group. They have their tentacles in so many things. I did some research on their front companies and was surprised they are behind so many home builders

Plaindealing

Colby go back to.Mobile.
Oh wait…
You can’t.
Gtfo.

Ready for Election

Ripp, wish you would forward all the comments from “Halloween Characters” to this new post – everyone needs to see them as we get closest to the election. And vote “YES” for the Fairhope change of government !! People are sick & tired of the “controlling” council.

Claudene (grandma)

Vote YES for the little people.
For once!!!
Kant ain’t rigging this one. Neither his paw!!
Get rid of this lying fake christian vermin like robert brown!!!

Claire Goodside

You tell it Claudine! Somebody needs to!

This town has been torn apart by the sneaky little you know whats that have controlled everything.

I don’t know who died and told them they were royalty – but they all seem to think it!
And thanks to you Mr. Ripp, we finally can keep it honest.
I hope people will stop and think about every position that it open and how they have done us all a disservice when they vote next Tuesday.

Why are even taking about Colby? He’s a nobody who bullied Mobile City Employees, came back to Fairhope with his tail between his legs and sold out to special interests.

The people who want a no vote can’t articulate an agurment against it except “If you Don’t Know, Vote No”!

Hope Fairhope citizens won’t fall for such a dumb slogan.

If you don’t know, don’t vote !

Quailridge

I heard over 1000 vets showed up at his office in city hall. That plump lil turd is one smug sob. What a disservice to those veteran’s!

Harbinger

Sure!! Let’s go back to the Nix days!
Where did his secretary go?
Wake up Fairhope.

Long Time Resident

I do not like the present Catalyst Cancerous Council who are arrogant towards the people. I have lived here all my life and my ancestors came here with the Single-taxers and I am going to vote these carpet-bagging crooks out.
They have moved in this town that we helped build and convinced themselves and outsiders it was they who built this town. Now they have sold this town to the outside developers, crowded our schools, overflowed our sewers, polluted our bay, jammed our roads, and brought in crime.
Don’t tell me Robert Brown is from this “Hometown.” I just threw up in my mouth thinking about this bull. He cashes in on any deal and moves to Rock Creek and takes his money with him.
This council MUST go baqck to where they came from.

Jay Rob is to blame for this…he didn’t call to get a legal opinion.
Lazy af

Jim

If You Don’t Know – Vote No…..

Now that is about as logical as the current council!
Baaaaaad idea to not think for yourself!
?
I’d hate to know that I was a sheep! ?

If you don’t VOTE YES, nothing will change. The challenging, infighting to remain in power, being ugly and devisiveness will only continue.

A Vote for Yes is a Vote for Civility

We Need You All Hands On Deck Rock Creek!!

Jack Burrell needs to go. Vote yes!
