The good ole boys in Fairhope won the last election and were successful in electing a Mayor and Council that were willing to embrace development and return to the old “corrupt” way of doing business. The municipal attorney is old school and the municipal judge is a major developer in Fairhope. You can thank Catalyst, aka Scott Boone Consulting for this cast of characters.
Jack Burrell has been the puppet for developers and special interest groups since first elected. For almost 9 years, Jack was president of the council. His involvement in the Fairhope Airport Authority has been a cluster f— from day one. In March of last year, he canceled the video online broadcast of the Airport Authority meetings to the public. I knew then he was up to some kind of B.S.
“After 9 years of Jack Burrell tenaciously holding on to, the position of President of the Fairhope Council, it may come to an end tonight. Jack has soiled the seat of council president to a point that a new chair is necessary. Jack’s legacy is infamous and it has cost the taxpayers millions. If you think he is relinquishing the seat out of courtesy, then have another drink.”
See the past articles for Jack Burrell or the Fairhope Airport Authority.
If you wish to be educated and entertained, at the same time, about the infamous Jack Burrell. I have listed a couple archived posts for you:
“Jack’s latest stunt involves the Fairhope Airport Authority, FAA, where he already has an infamous reputation for bid rigging. The latest stunt is that there will be NO Airport Authority meetings on line for the public to see. Not since February has their been a recorded meeting, nor has there been any explanation or public notice. “
In November he resigned from the Fairhope Council Presidency abruptly and slithered to a council member status. Anybody who knows anything about Jack, held their breath, knowing he was involved in some self motivated chaos.
“In Fairhope the quarterback is none other than the most sneaky and corrupt politician in Baldwin County. The great negotiator, Sneaky Jack Burrell who chose tonight to use the City Council meeting, which no-one goes to, to swear in the Municipal Judge Haymes Snedeker.
Please remember, it was Jack and his two worker B’s that spent 2.65 million dollars on recreation land. Don’t forget the town clock that cost six thousand dollars or the K-1 that is leaking and rotting since his great deal.“
“The Ripp Report and BCLE are offering a $5k cash award to anyone who can prove that the contents of the formal complaint against Councilman Jack Burrell of Fairhope are false. Prove that the documents quoted or provided are fabricated or altered from their original copies or that there is any willful malicious intent to mislead the public for any reason or to unlawfully disparage Mr. Burrell by making fictitious claims or providing erroneous documents, and you will be five thousand dollars ($5k) richer.”
No one ever claimed the award and no one came forward to sue The Ripp Report over the printed documents.
Jack’s has canceled any video’s of the Fairhope Airport Authority meetings. This should have sent up red flags, but the council just went along with Jack with their eyes shut. It is the only committee meeting taken offline. Erased from public scrutiny.
He then begins to distance himself from the council presidency, by withdrawing from the position, saying he did so in order that someone else could serve. HA, after he had hogged the position for 9 years. If you believe that then you have been eating the Burrell Burger at McSharry’s.
Christmas, Covid and Football was the perfect time for the Airport Authority to file a lawsuit to eliminate the FBO, Fixed Based Operator, Continental Motors.
Airport Authority Votes To Terminate Airport Operator’s Lease (Updated)
“The lawsuit alleges various shortcomings by Continental on its own FBO (fixed base operator) lease agreement, including: failure to secure proper insurance and inadequate fuel farm maintenance; failure to install required office/hangar space; et al. “
Seems Continental Motors does not want to play Jack’s game, so they made their move:
“the company rescinded its surprise decision the day before to terminate over 30 leases it had with local citizens for hangar space for storing their planes at the Fairhope airport (effective January 30).“
COUNCILMAN BURRELL’S COMMENT
“During the meeting the city council’s representative on the board, Jack Burell, called the letter to evict “absurd” and asked members of the aviation community present for patience: “this is nothing more, in my personal opinion, a ploy … to drive a wedge between the aviation community and airport authority … an attempt to coerce us into settling this dispute (lawsuit) in a manner not in our best interest … or your best interest … no reason to vacate (evict) given … other than for you to come to us to force setttling (lawsuit)…”
What the hell is Jack up to?
Or, which good ole boy has Jack selected to replace the FBO?
What has the great negotiator got under the table?
Pay attention. The 1% who use the airport are the ones creating the issues that cost all the citizens in Fairhope an appropriation of $350,000 a year, without any monetary gain, additional Fairhope Airport Authority holds the mortgage, not the city, who paid for it.
The Ripp Report knows more about this story, however we are going to wait and see how deep Jack digs a hole for himself, and the taxpayers.
Remember when Jack was on his soapbox screaming about NO TOLLS on the proposed Bay Bridge and how it could be built without federal government money? He now is on his knees begging the federal government for money and has become an advocate FOR TOLLS.
Jack claims to be a rocket scientist and some actually believe him. The only rockets Jack knows anything about are Lego’s.
Stay tuned I guarantee you this story is going to get much more interesting.
You have done a number on Jack. He looks.
Nice photo of Jack. Is that a current mug shot?
Mister Ripp I know Jack goes to church on the regular.
Sorta like MacSheri’s.
But…if he sits in a bar–without drinking–that don’t make him a drunk no more than him sitting in a garage makes him a car.
It’s what he does that makes him what he is.
And what he is is a slimy politician.
Thanks for pointing out this important, undeniable fact.
God help Fairhope, Alabama overcome this incrosion of greed.
Burrell has aged badly. Ripp I think you owe him a few dark hairs. Damn!!!
that pocket rocket of Jack’s has been used on his friends, his friends’ wives, his constituence and neighbors. straight up astro nut.
Yes, Jack has aged. Rough living and stress has taken a toll on him. All this for what? A health insurance policy for his dependents and this has caused him to drink which has costed him his health
He should have used his rocket knowledge to defray his financial needs rather than use politics
What a mean little unsubstantiated web page. You should be sued. No sources. All lies. All the time. Fairhope is fine, Ripp. Move along now.
You need to read a little more. People do not sue people who are telling the truth and can prove it
Hey truth teller
Why don’t YOU try to sue Ripp? You can’t because Ripp speaks the truth
Now go back to sticking your nose up Jack’s butt.
Tell Jack you failed to troll Ripp’s site, you beta cuck
Boom. You got truth teller owned
Let the record show that Jack is a premature aged man due to his lifestyle and Truthteller is a butt bottom for him. Too bad Truthteller gave up his manhood for Burrell
Ha ha ha ha
Mister Ripp is covid the best thing to ever happen to Fairhope? Without it we would have to look at Jack without a mask.
That was naughty, Gene. Naughty naughty.
Jealous of Jack. About right.
File another ethics complaint. Still nobody arrested. LOL
Truthteller is a b1tch for Jack. He is a bottom beta cuck no doubt
Just lay still and don’t scream so loud, Truthteller
Ripp telling lies is a crime.
How do you measure your success?
Twitter followers? Are you even on the twitter?
Everyone’s moving to fairhope.
People are moving to Fairhope because people are buying up those cheaply built houses that Catalyst developers are throwing up. Now the homebuyers are realizing that they bought shoddy houses and are suing those developers that bankrolled the politicians.
See, “Catalyst Proud,” how easy that was to answer? You guys try to stick in a troll message to try to save your greedy behinds, but your statements are so weak that they can get shot down. You Catalysts are so transparent. It all comes down to greed that control you folks. You are not even from this area yet you swoop in like a child predator, destroy the area, overbuild, and when you are done you all go somewhere else to destroy. I knew that some of you got run out of Florida a few years back because they were on to you. Too bad, the people here were too trusting. But the people are catching on. Your profits will be sued out of your pockets by the homebuyers you bilked, your politicians will be indicted for corruption, and then you will be run out of town.
I am on this lawsuit
Do not buy a house built by Truland, DR Horton, or Adams. These houses are cheaply built. See past the fancy floor tiles and countertops
These houses are awful
Stay away from Belaton too. They are crooks
Jack is worse than kant.
Better than biden.
HOW is Jack better than Joe B?
Enqiring minds wanna know. Thanks Jackoff.
Lots of shoddy construction. Jack and the council all get kickbacks. Everybody is happy accept the consumer. It’s all a big sham. County Commissioners do the same thing because its easier with no planning aparatus.
This place will be a zoo in two years. Mark my word.
The council needs to pull its little heads out of the sand and do something about inflation. Out of control in Baldwin County. Worse I’ve seen in years, maybe decades. Come on Burrell! We need price controls.
East r shore 4 life
Burrell is not going to do anything unless Cox tells him what he can or cannot do
These local politicians work for developers not the people
The people are to blame because they are I’ll informed
Baldwin County is a tax farm for the state of Alabama. I would like to see these politicians burn in hell by the God they use as a political prop
How about an exposee on the new judge in OBA. He is way worse than Buddy Bee. And now Buddy has more time to screw divorcees and his gf.
Throw in a vaccine mandate for kids.
You people live in a vaccum. let’s work on the roads and parks first.
Ripp what about the wildlife refuge created when the triangle park was
fraudulently purchased by Kant? Any update on our esteemed governnment’s
situation (SNAFU) would be courtesy.
Let’s go Burrell!
I blame Jay for the supply chain shortages. Muh republican!! Vote meemaw and take your jab. Peasants!
