Fairhope you made the biggest mistake voters could make, you let the bees eat the honey. Only 15% of the registered voters decided who would become Mayor of Fairhope.
Well Fairhope “I told ya so”, Queen Bee Sullivan is getting her just reward. The three B’s on the council, Boone Brown and Burrell, are making sure Sullivan gets her share of the honey, right out of the hive. Her honey pot reward has been announced even before the Queen Bee has been sworn in.
The queen bee is getting a $112,000 salary boost per year above former Mayor Wilson’s salary.
That brings the Queen Bee’s salary and benefits to $160,000 a year.
That is a $ 448,000.00 dollar raise for four years, or a total of $640,000.00 gross salary and benefits for four years. Not bad for a queen bee with only a high school education.
Mayor Wilson had a finance degree and brought the city out of debt. She had ethics and principals and NEVER ate the honey. That was the problem!
Council President Burrell will be presenting the Queen Bee the only tools she will need for Mayor, a scissors for ribbon cutting and a rubber stamp. Nov. 2 will be swearing in of the Queen Bee. Jack Burrell will be present and handing out extra large containers of KY jelly to the general public, who are going to need it for the next four years.
The Ripp Report predicted that if the most corrupt city council, Fairhope has seen in 25 years, was re-elected and Sullivan won, Fairhope was doomed. I did think that they may be a little more cool about it, but what the hell Catalyst/Scott Boone Consulting OWNS Fairhope.
Please remember Scott Boone is councilman Kevin Boones, son, both were involved in the “Strawman” land fraud. Strawman is a lagniappe series, check out the spider graph. Councilman Boone has more llc’s than a coon dog has ticks.
Jack Burrell began his last term by “bid rigging”, guess who that involved? The municipal Judge, who now own one of the largest tracks of undeveloped land in Fairhope. The good Judge will need the queen bee and the three bees to pollinate his plans. That will happen! No problem.
Councilman Brown, who’s business partner is on the board of single tax, racked in 100’s of thousands of dollars in contracts he secured by being in an elected office and serving on an appointed board, representing the city. He will continue to use his elected office for personal gain and I predict we will do that very soon.
Let’s not forget the municipal attorney who takes his orders from the bees. He is also responsible for the mismanagement of the McSherry case, or should I say “managed”.
Queen Bee Sullivan has promised to “embrace growth” and trust me you are going to find out what “embrace” means.
Here is the real pisser, Jack Burrell, who has used Hand Arendall as a personal attorney firm is now wanting to appoint them as the litigation attorneys. Get out the KY because it was Cain O’Rear with Hand Arendall who stood up at a council meeting, years ago, and held his right hand in the air and promised that the City of Fairhope would not have to pay any attorney fees for the triangle lawsuit.
His law firm took home 3 million dollars and lost the lawsuit. Jack knows this, but the honey pot is open for business and Hand Arendall loves honey.
First the Queen Bee gets her honey, $640,000.00, as a Mayor of Fairhope, for four years. Second the hiring of a law firm that lost the triangle lawsuit, costing Fairhope taxpayers, millions, Ultimately, Fairhope was ordered in a court settlement to purchase the property for 8.25 million, plus the 3 million the attorneys got.
Pay close attention how the Queen and her worker bee’s justify their actions, you will need the KY.
That is what you get when you elect greedy corrupt politicians. The next four years are going to drag Fairhope backwards, your property values are going to flat line and start dropping. Schools will be overwhelmed and your elected officials will become deaf to any public outcry involving corruption.
Keep that KY handy because the Queen Bee, the three B’s and Scott Boone are just warming up.
Time to put the house up for sale.
Thanks for trying Mr. Ripp.
Sad and dark days ahead for a once quaint city.
Wondering about her payout for being fired considering it was from loss of future income with the city. Heading up the utilities is a paid position by the city not an elected position.
she had no case but settled for a very small amount. She is absolutely not qualified. $640,000.00 for four years. Shows her true colors
Let the undoing begin –
decisions being made now without someone looking out for taxpayers.
Mayor Wilson will be sorely missed.
It is Fairhope’s fault.
I guess she can throw away her knee pads now.
Oh wait…she’s just getting paid more…
When I think of these folks back in the saddle again, it makes me sick to my stomach.
I can only say that good always overcomes; maybe a bigger web will be woven and they will all come tumbling down.
Honestly don’t know how you keep the energy to expose them. But thank you. They are bad people and their supporters are nothing more than sheep.
More like GED!!
Nobody even checked in Kentucky!!
As long as the citizens of Fairhope pit up with this then the citizens deserve what they get
The citizens have become smug and have thought they were better then the rest of Baldwin County
Now Fairhope will become what Theodore is to Mobile County and the council will steal the lifestyle
FAIRHOPE, YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU WILL GET
As for me, I got out and am in Silverhill. I laugh and cry at what Fairhope is becoming
Fairhope voted this bunch back in and then voted in Sherry to top it all off.
So, Ripp, why do you think only a minority showed up to vote?
You have to give CSB credit – they knew how to get their people to the polls.
I tip my hat to CSB. With Corte’s money, Cox’s money, and the rest of the developers’ money behind the politicians who use CSB, CSB is STILL a force to be reckoned with.
Lyn Stacy, Elliott, Haygood, and Scott Boone are indeed smart. Well I know Stacy is deceased, but he leaves a legacy in Baldwin County politics.
You are right CSB lost when Carl won but I was surprised at the money involved. In the Mayor’s race CSB depended on the Can’t crowd and a popularity contest. The core group votes, they do not attend meetings and have not got a clear picture of Fairhope corruption. Developers, judges and attorneys all supported the Queen, now they have TOTAL control. I predict that this administration will see an indictment of an elected official. I say this because I know what they have gotten away with and they really feel as if Fairhope is THEIR town. The majority of voters stayed home and were asleep at the wheel, now they will see and pay.
15 percent voted.
Ignorance is blissful.
They will ruin Fairhope.
Bitr your tongue.
They will in fact ruin Fairhope
But they will get RICH in doing so
They ruined Daphne and Spanish Fort
Next on CSB’s radar is Silverhill
A legacy of deceit.
Fairhope is run by crimiinals and thugs. Burrell is a kid licker.
Boone and his son have more LLC’s than brain cells.
Fairhope’s mayor has only a high school diploma but is paid four times the average salary of a Fairhopian.
You get what you deserve and pay for in life. This is a lesson hard learned on the ignorant, apathetic FH voter.
I like that one where you say the Boones have more LLC’s then brain cells
Hey Scott Boone, are you reading this?
Well it is the morning after the election. At this time we don’t know who the next US President will be but I am glad the the toll road failed. I am happy for the residents of Barnwell and Rosington have been able to protect their homes from the predatory developers that have been licking their greasy teeth from Fairhope and Robertsdale
The city government’s intention Fairhope and Robertsdale have shown they are owned by the developers and should not be trusted with areas outside of their corrupt city limits
Take that, Catalyst! Just because you buy elections in the towns still doesn’t mean you control ALL of the county
As a resident of Barnwell, we know what the crooked city council does. We are just fighting to protect our homes from Fairhope
Fairhope is not to be trusted
We will fix that “landmark” thing pretty quick. There is too much land out there that can be developed and a few hicks out in the county will NOT stop us from exercising our property rights
I did see that she ‘was fixing’ to ‘do somethin’. She is an embarrassment to the nth degree!
No she isn’t. She is a heck of a lot smarter because she is now the MAYOR
Don’t worry Georgia Orwell. If an official announcement needs to come from her office them one of her assistants will write it for her
Sherry may sound dumb but she is smart. Smarter then her distractors
Now let’s go and EMBRACE GROWTH.
