Mayor Sullivan Fairhope Alabama

Only in Fairhope can someone with a high school education become the utility director with absolutely no experience at the job. Mayor Sullivan gets a $25,000 utility salary as well as her second check as Mayor.

No other job classification among Fairhope employees exists where “No Experience” is needed.

Mayor Wilson refused the dual salary and position of utility director for the much more prudent decision to hire a qualified utility engineer, with education and experience.

Burrell and Sullivan chose to return to Tim Kant days of the past and fired the engineer to put High School Sullivan in charge.

Mayor Sullivan and Council President Burrell Joined forces to confront citizen concerns in the Hawthorne Glenn Subdivision.

The subdivision was given less that a week’s notice that previous plans, discussed the last three years, for an electric sub station next to the ABC store, had been abandoned for a location within their subdivision, zoned as single family.

Exercising no transparency, little notice, and a whole lot of bullshit, the city purchased property within the subdivision and proceed to bulldoze their latest plan to “Enhance Development” and provide the “Developers” their electric demands, while ignoring the citizens investment in their property as well as their Quality of Life.

Citizens showed up and voiced their disgust with the city’s lack of transparency and deaf attitude. The issue was tabled until June 10th meeting. The public should support Hawthorne Glenn citizens that oppose putting an electric sub station in a residential neighborhood.

It could happen in your subdivision!

“Filling in the retention pond behind the ABC store was costing us about $1 million in dirt, so by paying $250,000 for this land, we saved about three-quarters of a million,” Burrell said. “We thought we were being good stewards of the people’s money.”

This is called Jack Burrell economics aka bullshit.

It was Mr Burrell who purchased 114 acres near the Airport for recreation at a price of $2.65 million. In his esteem wisdom, he then leased it to a farmer for $9000 a year, because the city had no funds for development.

A million dollars for dirt?

Hell, Fairhope has 114 acres of dirt worth $2.65 million that could be used to fill Jack’s million dollar, quarter acre hole.

Jack and Sherry, not sure who is Mayor, explained to the attending citizens that they as elected officials are charged with being conservative with tax dollars.

Laugh your ass off. This is the same two elected officials that ignored the city’s infrastructure during the Kant administration. What about the Triangle lawsuit where the city raided the utility fund for $3 million to pay off a lawsuit the city LOST.

What about that $600,000 clock deal Jack brokered?

For a 26×60 lot ?

The purchase price was $525,000 with the city paying half the cost and the Fairhope Single Tax Colony paying the remaining $262,500.

Once the purchase is complete, the city will have full ownership, according to earlier reports.

Burrell said Thursday that the city needs to move forward with the purchase.

What about the 5 million plus for the K-1 school that has deteriorated to the point that the city spent around $100,000 for a temporary roof?

Purchased in Sept 2018, the K-1 center continues to disintegrate.,67061

What about the Council and Mayor voting themselves full family Insurance?

No other employees enjoy those benefits?

They are looking out for your tax dollars. Ha Ha

What about the $6.2 million Waterfront project. Tens of thousands wasted in design and changes to the plan that Jack used as a political weapon in the last election, against the best interests of the community.

What about the toll Jack proposes for all citizens crossing the proposed new Bay Bridge, after he pledged “No Toll” ?

Jack fought against districts and district representation as well as opposing a city manager, all so he can maintain control and power. Jack wants citizens powerless and ignorant.

Jack is at the controls. Trouble is, he is out of control.

Last but not least is Jacks bid rigging at the Airport.

The meetings are no longer recorded, thanks Jack. We appropriate the Airport each year to the tune of $330,000 a year, yet we have no title and the Airport, like the golf course losses money every year.

Less than 1% of the citizens use the Airport or Golf Course.

You cannot trust Jack or Sherry to tell the truth, be ethical or transparent.

Please attend the June 10th meeting and support Hawthorne Glen residents. Be sure to wear high boots the shi- is going to be deep.

Read the latest 🎉 Terrific Tuesday 🎉!

    Who cares about Hawthorne Glenn? A bunch of Yankees that overpaid for tract housing. The city bets that these unorganized people don’t have the cajoles to do anything but whine

  2. The Mayor, Sherry Sullivan, and the Council President Jack Burrell will tell you they followed state law and the comprehensive plan, however there is not a resident in Fairhope who would feel this transaction was handled fairly and transparently. We have all realized we have no representation on the City Council since they are elected at-large. This “business as usual mentality” and no representation has to change. The board of appeals is a orchestrated sham meant to appease the peasants. All residents should be concerned with their actions. If it happens to us it can happen to anyone.

  3. The retention basin is needed as a retention basin.

      Yeah until they can make their next real estate deal

    • Francis Paul Ripp | May 28, 2021 at 8:12 pm |

      It was built in the 70’s and was to be replaced with a updated drainage system, rather than maintaining an outdated retention pond, that was 20 years ago

    Follow the money. Burrell is dirty. Plain to see.

    They are goi g to make lots of money when they sell the retention pond. I bet somebody is going to get a H U G E kickback on this
    Watch in a year or two, the city will sell it, and the council will make money on the backend. These guys are so predictable with their flimsy lies

    • Anonymous | May 29, 2021 at 8:28 pm |

      Yep. You know for a fact that somebody wants the location where the retention pond is and they want to buy it.

      • Anonymous | May 30, 2021 at 9:22 am |

        BINGO. This is the REAL reason. They would put the electrical substation in Hawthorne Glen because they are betting those people are not organized and will not do anything. Screw them
        Then they can sell the retention pond land and make a few bucks.
        Watch for it. After time the land will be sold to a Catalyst-connected developer and the Council members will collect money for some “unrelated” consulting work.
        You got to hand it to this bunch of crooks – they are consistent.

    Corrupt af.
    The worst council ever.

    • Boone’s Goons | May 30, 2021 at 7:57 pm |

      So what are you, Tandy, and the rest of the people in Fairhope going to do about it? Heck, you all voted the same bunch in last election. You Fairhope sheeple deserve what you all get. ThT is why I moved out and moved up to north Baldwin.
      Fairhope use to be called “God’s country” but you all through your anode complacency let Satan take over.
      Catalyst operatives actually monitor this website. That can find IP numbers and trace them back to the source. Fortunately for me I have a cock puppet on my system so Boone’s Goons can’t trace me

  8. Mr. Ripp Trump said today he’s being reinstated in August. WTF? Biden got 80 million votes!!! Riots are next!!

      OK, guys, give it a rest, already!
      The election is over and the next Presidential election will be in 2024. Geez, get off the QAnon site and get a life!

      Trump wore his pants backwards in front of a large crowd. On purpose of course. This must be a sign about returning in August.

      • Anonymous | June 6, 2021 at 1:38 pm |

        Trump does leave interviews and press conferences suddenly. I wonder if he pooped in his diaper? Or when he had trouble getting down those step. I wonder if he pooped in his diaper then? So many questions.

    It’s amazing on how much bull shit you people can think up and let Ripp lead you to the kool aid for you to drink and all this coming from someone who does not live in the city but want to stir shit up

    • Francis Paul Ripp | June 3, 2021 at 8:40 pm |


    • Anonymous | June 3, 2021 at 11:14 pm |

      Ah put a sock in it. If Ripp is telling lies then what are the particular lies? Of Ripp was telling lies then he would be sued. But it is Ripp that is doing the suing and he is winning!
      Therefore the conclusion is that it is YOU who is the liar.
      Now go back to the REAL crooks that told you to write your lying post that you tried to do their bidding but instead got OWNED.

    • Anonymous | June 3, 2021 at 11:19 pm |

      It is not the Ripp Report that is trying to get us to drink the koolaid but the developers that wants us to drink it
      Ripp just shines the light on the shenanigans of the three B’s and keeps us from drinking their koolaid.
      You getting it yet? When you try to discredit Ripp you just expose yourselves more

  10. Many lies told by this site. Someone needs to take him to court on the lies.

    • Francis Paul Ripp | June 3, 2021 at 8:49 pm |

      It is not wise to sue people telling the truth. The Ripp Report has prevailed in court 5 times, involving Fairhope, once in Federal court where the council,Jack refused to allow me to speak at a city council. Fairhope is owned by Catalyst/Scott Boone Consulting and special interests. The good ole boys, like YOU.

    • Anonymous | June 3, 2021 at 11:06 pm |

      Ripp was in court and he won! How is that thinking working for you, “lawyer?” You probably are not a lawyer but a flunky for Catalyst. However it was nice to hear of your desperation that Ripp is still writing and exposing you all for what you are.

    • Just got owned | June 4, 2021 at 8:17 am |

      BOOM! Lawyer got owned – TWICE! First by a reader and second by the Rippster himself!

    • Anonymous | June 4, 2021 at 8:52 am |

      So you are a lawyer?
      Bwa hahahaha
      Where were you when Paul was suing the pants off Burrell? Burrell sure could have used you back then
      Shoot now when Ripp talks at the council meetings the council will run out of the room before they would ever DARE to shut him up

  11. Burrell said he won. You bent and kissed the ring for 5 grand. Ha. Keep running your mouth.

        Heck yes!!!!! I want to be a loser for $5,000 too!
        Hey Lawyer, will you help me “lose?”

      The Lawyer is a little confused. That wasn’t Ripp. That was a stranger and Burrell in the Gully.
