Well folks, as they often say, “You can’t make this stuff up!”
Monday night’s city council meeting showed the true colors of council president “come fly with me” “Jack” Burrell. It was a tough night for Burrell and his faithful Bible study partner, and best friend forever, Senator Tripp Pittman.
Recently for the first time in many years Fairhope had a legitimate bid process for the emergency hurricane debris removal contract, which could bring millions of dollars to the recipient. For over ten years straight, the City of Fairhope― through its city council, has awarded the contract to Pittman Tractor, the private business of Senator Lee “Trip” Pittman, an elected official of this city, county and state.
City council agenda item: 6. Resolution – To Award Bid for Disaster Debris Removal and Disposal 2017 Contract (Bid No. 009-17).
How can an elected, public official bid on a municipal public contract within his own district? That is an easy answer! You have a corrupted mayor and council and a corrupted bid process. The question is: How do you break that cycle of corruption?
You elect a new mayor.
In addition to the hefty hurricane debris removal contract, Senator Pittman used his position as “trustee” of the BP funds to siphon off $750,000 and then left the anchors in Mobile Bay, imperiling his neighbors in the process. He did not stop with Fairhope. Sen. Pittman leveraged his political office to obtain Baldwin County Government heavy equipment contracts as well as other municipal contracts, even though he told the newspapers and his constituents “He only got ten percent from the illegal BP contract” and that he would “never do it again.”
Please go to minutes 31 to 37 of the council meeting and listen to the mayor. Then listen to Jack. All “come fly with me” had to do was keep his mouth shut. Hell no! Jack Ass was full of piss and vinegar that his Bible thumping partner was not going to get the contract. Jack went on about how it was legal and the ethics commission said it was OK.
Notice Jack Ass is very good with semantics and blustering. However, he is grasping at straws. First off, it has never been ruled legal; and secondly, an ethics opinion about this contract was never issued. A new contract would require a new ethics opinion, which was not requested.
Why is Alabama number 50 in the US?
America’s 10 worst states to live in (yep, you guessed it)
America’s 10 worst states to live in (yep, you guessed it)
When you have a city council president argue before the citizens of the community that it is ok for an elected official to be awarded municipal contracts, then you must realize that’s why we are dead last. Politicians like Jack Burrell and Trip Pittman are the very reasons why Alabama cannot have nice things.
To abandon all ethical standards just to give a friend and fellow elected official a contract is the epitome of corruption and public betrayal.
Pittman Renews Million Dollar Contract with Fairhope – Alabama Political Reporter
By Bill Britt Alabama Political Reporter MONTGOMERY— In an unbroken stream dating back to July 2007, Sen. Lee Davidson Marbury “Trip” Pittman (R-Daphne) and former Baldwin County Commissioner Bob James, have held a lucrative debris removal contract awarded by the city of Fairhope. The million plus contract mostly being held by Pittman Tractor Co., Read More
Mayor Wilson had the contracts re-bid with fresh eyes giving others, not elected officials, new opportunity and a fair chance to bid.
Sen. Pittman has been a poor excuse for an elected official; however, he is nevertheless a shining example of corruption greed and hypocrisy. Pittman is now making a run for the United States Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. One of his opponents is none other than Luther Strange, the presiding Alabama Attorney general who failed to indict Pittman on the BP scandal or Governor Bentley, another criminal touting his devout Christianity.
According to Pittman, God told Pittman to run for the senate. I wonder if it was the same God who told him how to take advantage of his elected office?
The good news is it that Fairhope is already a different and better place because the old way of doing business is no more.
Also, rest assured that very soon Pittman will be using one of his publicly-rented tractors to dig a hole and bury himself neck-up, next to Jack, at the airport.
Although I watched the council meeting on Monday, I wanted to re-watch Jack’s once-again childish attack on the Mayor for no reason at all but to throw his weight around. For those who did not hear his belligerent scolding, it begins at 31.28 on the video above. And what’s with Jack’s white suit? All he needs is a bolo tie and a white Stetson to complete his ensemble. Anyway, as expected whenever the Mayor gets “uppity” and fails to “know her place” in the pecking order, he becomes agitated, talking down to her, and finishing up with a variation of his favorite put-down “Mayor, that’s enough!”. And for what? Because she calmly explained what he himself did not understand? Because she didn’t stay meek and mild as he whined about some random, unanticipated, hypothetical event that we all know he WISHES would happen so he could then say “I told you so!” I commend the Mayor for not only acting appropriately with these bids but behaving like an adult while Jack once again tried to demean her. Thank God the council meetings are streamed now so our eyes are open to what really happens. You go, Mayor. Grow up, Jack.
Because if we have a major storm, she just cost the city around $115,000, that’s why he was upset. Not to mention her not telling the council they still had an option for another year on the existing contract, which made this a big waste of time. Except for the fact that Jack hit the nail on the head, she wanted Pittman out. But hey, fresh eyes. Everyone gets a chance. Especially if you helped her get elected….Doesn’t matter HOW much it costs us CITIZENS…
Pittman is not in the business of disaster recovery; he is a full time politician. He didn’t even have time to bid on it; why does Burrell care if Pittman doesn’t? This is bizarre! And, Truth Teller, Pittman did a half-ass job with the BP clean up so why would Fairhope hire him again for anything?
That picture is an insult to donkeys everywhere.
Mules/donkeys are smarter than horses, mules/donkeys are sure footed. They can carry more weight than a horse, can work harder! Mules/donkeys will not do something stupid, that is why they are considered stubborn. So, if you want to compare Jack to a mule/donkey then you are right. Jack is sure footed, steady, and will not do some stupid like this damn mayor. She is as dumb as the day is long, she is about to expose for what he really is, a buffoon!
Now that is creepy! But hey, you are a mayor supporter!
Trip Pittman is not worth a darn as a full time senator. Another disgrace from Baldwin County. Both Jack Burrell and Trip Pittman were terribly upset about not getting the contract. Pittman has made millions off Baldwin County Taxpayers, while being a worthless politician. This is just the beginning of the end for fat contracts and political office for Trip Pittman. Jack Burrell is next.
Pittman didn’t even put in a bid this time, which made me think that perhaps he is counting on moving to Washington soon and leaving Baldwin County behind. Jack Burrell’s reaction and comments were shocking to me; it was a very unbecoming little tantrum by someone who should have been above such displays of temper. The Mayor did a great job getting this accomplished.
The games they play. They pray on how to be fools. Trip Pittman isn’t going to D.C. You can bet the farm on that. He’s not even in the top 3. Maybe 4th. Still bet you he will not get 10% of the total votes.
Jack Burrell does this on a daily basis and has acted in his pathetic way at EVERY meeting. Your lost if you haven’t seen him whimpering and snarling and even screaming. Disgrace.
We are forming a citizen’s action committee so we can expose this mayor and get the word out to other citizens. She thinks we are all fools! The only fools are her supporters!
I want in! Let me know how to join!
You’d be perfect too. Don’t know how to whine unless it’s on this post. Jester’s new little bitch!
Lot of ifs Truth Teller. But one fact for sure. Jack Burrell acted and seemed distraught while accusing Mayor Wilson of not wanting Trip Pittman to get the debri contract. We have all seen his terrible 2 year old fits during these meetings. Congratulations to the 2 Eagle Scouts who where recognized. Just KNOW that they were both taught not to act or represent Fairhope the way Jack Burrell does.
I am shocked Jack brought this up. Too smart he aint.
The mayor is a crook, she needs to go to jail.
Lol lol lol lol!!! Anybody can say anything anonymously while hiding behind a post. Coward. Go file a complaint dumbass and put your name on it since you seem to be so sure. Maybe you are a crook and need to go to jail!
*you’re also “Anonymous”
Hey truth teller. Im not the dumbass calling anybody a crook and that they need to go to jail. It’s bedtime for you sleepy head. Sleep tight rookie!
This LLC holds the mortgage on the building her business is in, and now her residence. Very interesting.
And I’ll bet she didn’t claim the value of it being provided by her business as a taxable fringe benefit. Plus the utilities…
That is very common. Most commercial property is probably titled to an LLC; anyone with common sense would do it this way. What do you find so ‘interesting’ about it?
That’s not the interesting part. What’s interesting is the LLC owns it, the business pays it rent (income) and she uses it as her personal residence. #1 – why is the LLC not listed on her public disclosure form, when she clearly receives income from it (rent)? #2 – Is she declaring the rental equivalent of the residence on her personal income taxes? #3 – As previously asked, what about the utilities? Does the business foot the bill? If yes, she needs to declare that as well.
When you have a commercial building, and you ‘sell’ part of the building as a condo, you break out each mortgage. You have to break it out in different parcels – each has its own legal description. No, it is not common. Why did she not disclose?
Ripp, you need to investigate this!
I just wonder how much wine is being drunk that is tax deducted?
Jester. Reading this is much better than the past posts. Valid point and should be investigated. You don’t have to post crazy crap to get me to read it with positive feed back. This is just fine.
I didn’t make that comment….
You mean “you’re also Anonymous”
No- you’re calling someone out for making anonymous comments, same thing you’re doing. I didn’t make that comment. The Jail/Crook one. But bully away! It’s your favorite pastime…
Oh get over it and go to bed. If you think that’s bullying. It’s the same as posting as truth teller and saying bs without proof. File your complaint and sign your name to it and take it to city hall. It’s your duty if this is true!
What BS have I said without proof? Picture is up on Fairhope Alabama Citizens page….Go take a looky loo…
What is the Fairhope Alabama Citizens page? Googling it brings up the Citizens Bank…..
It’s the Facebook page for folks who want the TRUTH about our mayor.
Must be a closed page. Nothing like this was discovered on Facebook today.
You have to request to join. It is a closed group.
Not on Facebook. Truth Teller. Closed group. Everyone has been correct. You don’t know what the word Truth really means.
Ok, well go check out Fairhope Uncensored. A citizen just posted copies there. Under the post about her appearance on the news last night. And I do know what TRUTH means. I think that’s why I get under your skin so much. And I know a lot of truth. Buckets of it.
I googled ‘Fairhope Uncensored’. Nothing came up.
It’s a group on facebook. You MAY have to request to join, but all are approved.
You have to be logged in to Facebook to see it…
Awfully quiet today. Did you find it? Did you listen to this mornings wabf interview? Still saying there is no proof?
IRS has been notified about the mayors business expenses (LLC), taking living expenses as a tax deduction is not legal. AND you can notify the IRS anonymously! Or you can give them your name and it will remain anonymously and you can get up to 10% of recovered tax owned! I am sitting here laughing my ass off too!
When you are in jail, you learn to sleep with one eye open. Now that is special! She will learn how!
And I bet that’s the tip of the iceberg…car, mortgages, personal trainers, “travel”, credit cards…bet the lot of it was paid by the business and not declared. Oh, and her HALF of the club fees….
There is no doubt this is the tip of the iceberg!
Jester – you have really gotten under someone’s skin. Anonymous and Anonymous 2 are saying anything they can to try to distract from your comments. I think they doth protest too much???
Truth Teller. I really don’t care who you are or the anonymous one, two three or whatever name people use. Jester’s and other poster’s comments could certainly be said in a more civil and mature manner. I would guess you two are both made out of the same mold? However I don’t know that’s a fact. That’s why I said “I guess” you seem to support his pathetic verbal abuse. That’s is a fact! I like to read both sides of these post without having to read crap. Everyone calm down and use nice words if that is possible? Tired of the cursing and bad grammar, accusations, misspelling and all the fussing and the madness that is getting to people. Most of it is because they are too afraid to say something to someone’s face and hide behind some fake handle or anonymous. But I can see why some of you wouldn’t dare put your actual name on your post. Lived long enough to know that some of these people would be scared to leave their own homes if they did attach their actual names. I can actually can feel people’s blood pressure rise and hear the spit hitting the screen as some of you are screaming and shouting while posting. I’ve been here for 62 years and I have always thought Fairhope was civil. Why all the name calling and threats. These posts certainly has shown me what terrible people there are in this area! Please stop it! This is not setting a good example for our kids. They all know how to get online and watch the council meetings and see these posts. Please stop! Don’t be surprised when someone emails you after a post. There are so many tools out there to track your post to your cell or your computer. At least that’s what I’ve been told. Wouldn’t want to be anyone of you who have gone insane over posting! Grow up! Please! I’ll keep reading. I just wanted to post one time to let all the people in this town and especially on this post just how crazy some of you have gotten. Be respectful to one another. If someone uses Old Timer to post anything else. I can assure you it won’t be from this old timer. You and Jester are not God sent messengers. Stop acting like you both know the Truth about everything. File a complaint and copy several people on it. If you have facts. Use them legally and not immorally!
Old Timer – Thanks for your post. I don’t see where I’ve name called, or made any threats? And as far as using the facts legally, why would you think I am not in the process of doing that? And I’m not obligated to copy anyone on anything I file. If you only like reading “legal” facts, I have no idea why you’re on this page at all. I’ve been attacked by several of the Mayor’s family members on social media. This craziness is in response to what is being done to our town, and some of us citizens don’t like it one bit. And we have every right to speak up about it.
Hey Truth Teller. I think the old timer hit it on the nail. You support Jester so that makes sense. If you are really doing something about someone attacking you or the craziness. It’s certainly not helping you making any post of this site. Go take care of business. This site is for crazies to post multiple times and the the same people to read how stupid all of you are that keep on posting and posting and posting. Keep posting Truth Teller. You can’t handle the Truth. You can’t stop posting and love reading Jester! Simple. Hope you get some positive action if you have been done wrong.
Old Timer, I could not agree more.
It all starts with the tone of this Report, just read the ‘published’ section. That is where all of this starts, Ripp sets the tone his ‘Reports’ Yeah, all children have to do is google their dad’s name, all of Ripp’s comments will come up. So, Old Timer perhaps an email to the editor is in your future.
Well it seems that Jester has proven that he can give a civil post. Congratulations Jester!
Truth Teller. I don’t know about anonymous but I’m sorry that you are jealous and feel left out. Jester is mine. I would never distract him from his comments. I think even as sexy as I am. That could never happen and all of us together could never protest more that you and my Jester. He’s got us all beat just by himself. My man! Leave us alone pretty please.
How are you privy to the Mayor’s tax returns? I seriously doubt that the Wilson’s are committing tax fraud; why would anyone want to stir up such a hornet’s nest by throwing around these accusations with clearly no proof?
We need to keep our eye on the ball(s): infrastructure, Fly Creek Apartments, sewage in the Bay, uncontrolled growth that is going to ruin our school system, etc. If the Mayor stays on her promises, I don’t care if she has bodies buried beneath Page & Pallette, and neither should anyone else.
She does need more experienced assistants, however; the ones that she has are going to be the end of her. If they are good enough friends, perhaps they will resign because she needs someone with political experience. Her enemies are not going away and her assistants, while well intentioned, are neither savvy nor dirty enough to play the game that is in process.
I have not thrown out one accusation that I can’t prove. (go take a peek at Fairhope Uncensored) I have also raised some interesting theories. And I think the entire issue is that the Mayor has NOT kept her eye on the ball. She has been too busy with her own personal vendettas to worry about us citizens that she professes to care about so much. And I personally care if I have a Mayor who has committed fraud (Grand Hotel, misappropriation of funds), alleged assault on an employee, spyware to track confidential information, flat out lying to us, the list goes on.
Why do you “doubt” they are committing tax fraud? Because they’re so nice to you when you spend money in their store? Well, you must be one of the lucky ones…
Are you still going on and on. I’ve never been in the store but I’m not the one letting people get under my skin. You are. Chill out. This is going to drive you crazy.
She said the extension didn’t take into acct inflation and the the only way the city would save money is IF had a storm like Ivan. Pittman didn’t bid! This was a responsible decision and I commend her. Thank you Mayor.
Inflation??? What world are you living in??? We have not had inflation in years!!! That is why the nominal interest rates were below zero! Damn, you people need to take a basic economic class, wait, that information the mayor was speaking must have come from Fairhope’s Community and Economic Director. Dumb and Dumber!
Let’s get Jack Ass Burrell s white cowboy hat. Then we could call him Boss Hogg!!!
Jack’s look was not nearly as priceless as Ripp’s face when Brown owned him.
Brown needs to start campaigning.
Hear the thunder? It is coming, and coming hard! Someone also must declare on their taxes monies stolen, like in free country club dues and membership fees!
Now, who is laughing! The Jester!!!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!
Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack will be in the mayor’s seat!
Yes, my dear, you have nothing to fear, we can meet at the bar because it will be free, the mayor will pay so she can remain free.
I like where this is going.
I do too Gertrude, because the mayor will not look good in stripes! But I like the way this is going, she asked for it, now, she has to deal with it!!!!
You’re a sick pup Robert.
Will it be orange stripes or black and white stripes! That is the question we need to vote on!
Yes, yes my love, the mayor may be jealous because she is done, but we can go, from here with a flash, but you are a fool and that is a fact!
Anonymous, you need to apologize for being born? Jus saying!
Jester. That is so hilarious coming from you. I hope you got the same laugh posting your comment from as I did reading it. You should apologize for getting a woman pregnant and exposing the world to more stupid ass DNA.
Yes, oh yes I will, if you will leave with me from here. We can meet at the club, without the dues we will be fine because we have done that a million times!
Well hell, the mayor has been using the club for free and I want to go.
Kind of a dummy move by burrell.
Dang he does look like boss hog!!
I’ll buy the Hat for Jack Burrell. He acts way more like Boss Hogg than a president of a city council. Even got the whining down pat with the temper tantrums. Boss Hogg Jack It will catch on. I like it!!!
Very confused, does Jack think that Trip Pittman cannot keep up with the expiration dates of his business’s contracts? Is Jack questioning Tripp’s business sense? Or is the city of Fairhope supposed to do this for him? If Jack is so concerned why did he not keep with the expiration or extension dates of this contract?
That’s who our council president is. What a goof ball. Boss Jackass Hogg. And he’s president of the Fairhope City Council?
I so agree. This was beyond bizarre. How does Jack have a dog in this fight? If Tripp doesn’t care, why does Jack? Was Jack, perhaps, collecting a ‘fee’ for delivering this contract to his BibleBuddy? I hope that all attendees/viewers also noted that no one else on the Council supported Jack’s tantrum. Kevin Boone was the first to give support to D&J and the others quickly agreed. This leads me to believe that our Council is not as corrupt as we believed. Interesting period in Fairhope’s story! Perhaps Jack is toast when the other members are embarrassed by him?
I appreciate the Ripp Report but am disappointed that it has removed the ‘agree/like’ feature because it was a built-in city hall. If I posted something that was overwhelmingly received, I would be forced to re-think my position. Why has this feedback tool been removed?
Also, Mayor Wilson contacted Mr Pittman and he chose to not bid…….was Jack supposed to give him the contact without a bid? I am new to Baldwin County and don’t understand this system of taxpayer money going to people only because on their last name.
Please explain it to me!
Listen up Gerogia. If the mayor had not sent the contract out to bid, Pittman’s contract would have been automatically renewed at a cost of $115,000 lower than D&J’s bid. I wonder if the dumb mayor knew this? She has to be the dumbest human being in Fairhope!
LOL…….do you seriously believe that Burrell cares what anything costs? Isn’t he on the Airport Authority? He only cares about what cash lands in his pocket through his decisions/mandates of the Fairhope City Council and Airport Authority. Appears that Wilson has thrown a lug wrench into the engine of Jack’s Jet.
Georgia, did you say you have not lived here in Baldwin County long? Listen more, do your due-diligence! Ripp files ethics complaints and brags about it but what he fails to report is the outcome. All Baseless! It very clear to me that you,
Don’t know Jack!
The witch, the witch she is not cool, she is going into the cesspool! Fool! Whew Hooo!
Pittman is magically the low bidder…LOL
Dumbass, the contract was already signed did not need to bid it! Psst, psst, pull your head out of your ass and listen! Fool!
Sure let’s give to the senator!
Yes my dear, yes my dear, you would have less truth on here! The mayor is being investigated!
My name is Jester Triple-Six and my address is 173.208.68.000.
What about this? http://webkay.robinlinus.com/
Jester. What a surprise address. One day. One day.
Has anyone noticed that the more Jester posts, the more immature he sounds? It’s like the reverse of what should happen. People who practice their writing skills generally become better at it, not worse. And the name-calling…so childish and embarrassing.
Georgia, I’m glad the like/dislike button is gone and I’ll tell you why. For each up vote, a down vote would take the comment to its original count. So what would happen is that as soon as a particular post started gaining “points”, the Council Clan and their buddies would rally and start hitting down down down, just because they could. This created a totally inaccurate indicator of public opinion.
That is one of the few facts that I have read regarding the postings. Thank you
Unfortunately, we experienced a spike in VPN traffic that coincided with a spike in voting indicating someone was voting multiple times. We have two options. Everyone registers under an email address in order to give an accurate count, or remove the feature that is very open to manipulation.
Well. There go the candy ases of the council and they turds. All they can vote on now is on things during the council meeting. Although after talking to a couple of them. The whole council and Trip Pittman would have voted to have Jack Burrell not make the prick that he is comment regarding that she didn’t want Pittman to have the debris contact. Jack. Got to give you credit. You don’t know when to shut up. Pittman is praying for you and him right now. Both you and Pittman enjoy what little political office time you have left. I can assure everyone, mayor or council supporters. Pittman was done a long time ago and Jackass Boss Hogg. You are history. So nobody really cares about you being an ass. I would think by now that all women of Fairhope have learned that you think they all are way beneath you.
Every woman in town hates burrell.
If they are a true woman I agree with you 100%. Women are equal to men but Jack Burrell thinks they all should bow to him and the rest of the council. I will not rest until all women with any sense at all can understand this. Jack Burrell treats women like it was in the caveman era!
I agree totally that women are 100% equal to me. But if you are an equal then it should not be a problem to called out or asked someone, male or female to stop talking in a meeting that is not their meeting. If we are all equal then if someone is rude to someone else then it should not be considered sexist.
There can not be a double standard. I have a professional wife, 2 daughters, and I hope they are considered equal but equal means equal.
By your logic then the whole Council bows to him and they are men, where is your argument?
So you see a group called in Fairhope called ‘good-ole-boys unite’? But you do see ‘sister’s unite’. Who is being sexist?
I totally disagree with any premise of Jack or other men on the Council are being sexist. What I see is, professionals, politicians arguing and the mayor shoots back and bashes men, I have personally heard her bash men.
Now, get in the kitchen and cook me some dinner!
You do have an equal Jester. It’s a pile of dog shit. Wake up because you are dreaming if you think you have a professional wife. Pity the daughters and the wife must be a professional bullshitter to get along with you or just stupid to continue to put up with you. Or maybe they don’t know what a asshole you really are. It’s easy to blah blah blah when your identity isn’t exposed.
Jack Burrell is a total embarrassment to the City of Fairhope. Just where did he come from??? I do not know how or where he was raised but he is totally disrespectful!! Rude, Smart Aleck, tries to be a Hor Shot (which he is not) – he is a total turnoff. Is he actually married?? Surely to God No One would put up with his crap & being so self centered. He impresses NO ONE – for the other council members to continue to sit there letting him continue to act like this is beyond me. We need to get his “fit” & “tantrum” on local news & let the entire community see how he acts & treats people. I am more than sick & tired of his actions – he is NOT as cool as he thinks he is.
Wait, wait, did you ask if he was married? Have you ever looked at a picture of the mayor that is not photoshopped or seen her up close? Whew! Now, talking about an embarrassment of Fairhope. And her stripes will not make it any better! Jack, did not place tracking software on city workers computers, Jack has never assaulted a city employee, Jack has never obstructed a city employee witness from telling the truth, the list goes on and on! The mayor is one of the most self-promoting individuals in Fairhope! What color stripes!
The cat and mouse game is fun to listen to between you and Ripp but this comment about our Mayor takes it to another level. Not cool. Just agree to disagree then let’s make some FOREWARD motion. Note to others – the sexual remarks are just tasteless.
How drunk were you at 1:42 am?
Not drunk at all. I have trouble sleeping.
We are a good family and we have great children with good morals and values.
Then for the sake of you and your family. Stop going to this post site. Live your life with your good family and let these heathens go to hell on their own. Take care of your family. Not this posting site. It will not accomplish any good whatsoever. So don’t let them suck you in. Do not even pull it up if you truly care about good morals. I being as honest as anything that has EVER been posted on here.
Wendy Webb Solomon. I agree the sexual comments are tasteless. I guess dumbass, fool, temper tantrums, pull your head out of your ass, black or orange stripes, baseless accusations, witch etc… are all the things you tell your family that are okay and FUN to listen to? I don’t see a darn thing funny about any of this. It’s an embarrassment to this whole city. Anybody that enjoys these hateful comments and says this is a game and is fun is warped! All of it is warped! Get off the booze. Nothing good happens at 2 am in the morning.
I believe you misinterpreted my comment.
It’s fun /interesting to see one point of view against another. I DO NOT like all the other remarks that you stated.
I am using my REAL name and I’m not warped and I’m not drinking at 1:42 am. I am passionate about this community.
Okay. We both agree about compassion for our community. Get some rest. This should not have you up at 2 am. I believe you! You are not warped.
Wendy Webb Solomon drinks? I thought she was a nice lady, she has always been very nice to me. I didn’t realize she drank so much, it is a shame.
Trip is a bigger disgrace. Those anchors he left in the bay.
Jack is from ms. Uses his dads social security #. Wife is not natural born.
Jack bee stupid.
The mayor be stupider!
Wow. That’s a good one Truth Seeker! You so smart!
Jack is a douche rocket!!
I heard Ripp is gonna crucify Jack tomorrow for freaky friday.
I have been reading RR a while but this is my first post. The discourse has become more and more ridiculous almost every week. I am speaking to both sides of the name callers.
Now it also seems to be getting crude. I wonder how many posters are teenagers or younger because I can’ imagine grown ups being sonridiculous.
I see plenty of mistakes made by the two main protagonists, Burrell and Wilson, and regret they cannot take some of their banter private and work out some of the problems.
Frankly I think many of our problems began before this last year. The problem with the airport is we tried to be developers and buy lots of adjacent land prior to its significant market drop. Inadequate planning started the Fly Creek fiasco. I don’t know if there was corruption/mismanagement with the soccer complex, it just seems way too much money was spent on it.
Let’s try to get the conversation cleaner, not meaner. Vilifying the other side is not convincing anyone and is inaccurate. Neither side has been close to,perfect.
The whole discourse of this blog starts with the individual that publishes these outlandish claims against council members. Paul Frances Ripp or ‘administration’ sets the tone, anyone can file an ethics complaint, and he loves to do this, but if he was fair he would also ‘publish’ the results. Anyone can accuse anyone of anything, it is the proving part that makes it hard.
But I do have proof of the mayor’s wrong doing!
Anything that can be proven should be proven. That’s about the best post I’ve seen you write Jester. A whole lot more people will pay attention without all the dumbass, stupid comments that you enjoy making. I’ll back any civil post that can be backed up with facts.
I agree we must audit the sewer plant upgrade and soccer field.
Jack might not want to run for mayor. Anymore.
Someone told me that Truth Teller is Jester’s little bitch. Now that’s funny I don’t care who you are. Jester is even laughing! Now it’s Jester the Clown and The Truth Teller who doesn’t know what the word “Truth” means.
JESTER TRIPLE-SIX AND TRUTH TELLER. The dynamic duos of gloom and doom! They will keep posting as long as the have a pulse. Let the games begin!
I’ll be your huckleberry!
Jester. You are everyone’s bitch. Get some rest.
Robert Brown was on his iPhone yesterday…he was on this message board.
Brown is jester666.
Can we recall all of THEM???? Mayor and City Council??
I’ve been reading this post and the comments and I think they all need to go!
Let the flogging continue.
Jack deserves it.
Watching the news tonight, Fairhope Mayor in the news again and it is not pretty! Not good, the mayor is under investigation! You are all fools!
Freaky friday!! Cannot wait.
My buddy at the Y said hes voting fir Trip. Sad. Says he will bring federal money to town. What?
Him and Trip are both liars is what he was trying to tell you. If Trip gets it here. He spend the money awarding himself lucrative contracts like he has every year or almost 10 years. That’s a fact. Just ask Jack Ass Burrell or anybody with common sense. Jack Ass Burrell will just lie to you just like you friend at the Y! They pray together and will go to hell together!!!
