Please read the Mayor’s comments and file written complaints to those listed at the end of the article. Stop being silent gullible pawns of a council that does nothing for nothing and always does something for something. The Council and the Single tax Colony are willing to ignore the 2400 plus people who have already signed a petition opposing development of the gully.

“A Favor for a Favor” Quid quo pro “Something for Something”

The Fairhope City Council voted 3 to 2, Burrell Boone and Brown to purchase 2.6 million in recreation property. Burrell said that the appraisal was not a purchase and public comment will come up if they decide to purchase land. Instead they voted for the purchase based upon an appraisal with questionable comps., or a plan as to how they were going to pay for it. This was a bold face, documented, lie and the community got bent over, again. Red flags everywhere! “something for something”.

Wake up Fairhope this is how a CATALYST Council rolls. Do not be surprised to see the Council make another attempt at giving away, 102 acres around the triangle, that’s 20 million in city property. When the council sees resistance they back off then they resurrect the issue over and over again until they catch enough people asleep, that it passes.

Councilman Robert Brown is pushing past the Eastern Shore Art Center contract, ignoring requests for documentation, on the ESAC contract, he claims to have. Councilman Brown said he had permission from the Ethics Commission and multiple bids were submitted, he has not provided any documentation to back up his claims.

Well here we go again, the Fairhope merry go round with the same cast of characters, Fairhope Single Tax, Lee Turner, and of course Cliff Pittman, Councilman Robert Brown’s business partner and inside contact for FSTC.



The Fairhope City Council is the worst council in the history of the community. Public trust, oath of office and conflict of interest are ignored and leadership is non existent. Their primary goal has…

Lets have a lotto! We will all place bets on Brown/Pittman. That they will get the contract to build the subdivision in the gully. They will assure the community that they are “down home boys” and all contracts they get are due to their outstanding reputation and that under no circumstances have they used their elected or appointed office as an advantage in getting contracts that personally enrich themselves. Winners will be awarded a large size of KY personal lubricant compliments of the “down home boys”.

If you think this is business as usual and that no Quid quo pro exists and everything is transparent, as well as ethical, then go have lunch with the Cast of Characters and CATALYST Council, prunes are on the menu, don’t forget your KY.

It is game on, for the Fairhope Municipal Elections and the Council is acting like a wrecking ball, voting themselves a raise and full family insurance for their part time job, ignoring the citizens and restricting public participation. They have already been sued for violating constitutional rights and free speech.

CATALYST and Quid quo pro are synonymous.

So here we go again the Mayor out front defending the citizens and the Quid quo pro group, CATALYST, assuring everyone what the Mayor is saying is “CRAZY”. Wake up Fairhope.



Backstory Podcast @BackstoryPodcast CRAZY, that is the lame ass excuse that people use to describe people that they do not agree with, or they simply want to shoot the messenger.

    I am unclear about the ‘gully’ comments. Who owns the gully and what is being developed there? Sorry that I have forgotten the issue from the last attempt (which I believed was shut down). If anyone has current details, please share. I still don’t believe that either Cliff Pitman or Robert Brown are less than honorable, but I do with that Brown didn’t worship the Burrell Devil.

    • The city did not want the gulley. The gulley is washing out. FSTC IS paying tax on the gulley.
      The proposed project would restore the washout, add a walking trails, and provide lots to build on. If the city will not take it, then why can’t Pittman build on it?

      • Georgia Orwell | October 3, 2019 at 9:42 pm |

        Are you talking about Cliff Pitman of Pitman Brown or Trip Pittman of massive frauds? My understanding was that this is a drainage ditch, but all I know is what I hear at Council meetings or pick up around town……I understood that this gulley was crucial.

      • Anonymous that caught y’all | October 4, 2019 at 5:45 pm |

        To the Anonymous that made the comments about the Gulley project would restore the washout, add walking trails and provide lots to build on, etc! What don’t you put your name on that comment so everyone will know just how inexperienced you are when giving advice about the Gulley or any other project you might open your mouth about that does not need to be developed. The Gulley needs to be left alone for extreme environment reasons. What would y’all do after I caught you both fooling around with EACH other at the Gulley (maybe it was you?). Y’all find another place to do y’alls disgusting sexual activities. Poor single tax and council wants everything. One of y’all look exactly like one of the two men I caught? Disgusting!!!!!!

        • Ok. You got me. The gulley is a place where we can express ourselves in our own ways without judgement. We too have our needs. Please join us so we can know you in a new and tender way
          We can be soft and tough at the same time

          • You had a blister on your lip when I saw you. I’ll pass. But thanks for showing me your tender side again. That’s twice now that I’ve seen it.

    • The City owns the gullies which make up out watershed system. FSTC wants to get in the “development” business after over 100 years of preserving land for parks and community enhancement. Screams special interests. Its whole mission is being turned upside down because some of the board members stand to benefit GREATLY from this proposed subdivision. There are no rules or transparency at FSTC.

      Cliff Pitman is on the voting board of FSTC and his partner is Councilman Robert Brown. Last time citizens apposed it, Robert (Jester) was trying to tell everyone what a great project it was for the sole purpose of reaping the financial benefits of it being approved. Highly unethical.

      The parcel FSTC is trying to develope will most certainly negatively affect this sensitive watershed. It’s against everything FSTC is about. And the only way to make sure they do the right thing is for them to receive serious heat from the community to do the right thing. Restrict its use to a natural state forever.

      • I agree!!! And that will leave a safe place for Lee and the council to have their special meetings! Do y’alls thing and leave the land alone. We won’t bother y’all anymore.

    Fairhope appears overmedicated.

    • Overmedicated | October 3, 2019 at 7:11 am |

      Yep, Fairhope’s overmedication can be seen whenever you go to any of the drugstores and see the lines at the pharmacy seeing too many healthy and young looking people standing in line for drugs.
      They aren’t getting flu shots or blood pressure meds
      They are getting opioids, antidepressants, Ritalin, and Xanax. These drugs are “prescribed” by young doctors who need to pay off student loans while at the same time afford trophy wives, BMW’s, and oversized houses. Therefore, these young doctors will write any script to Fairhopians willing to pay or whoever has the medical insurance that will. That is why we have so many drugstores here.
      So yes, Fairhope is overnedicated. The result is the Rich bitch, drunken housewife, and whiny kid in rehab effect

  3. How do jack and the council convince the citizens they don’t suck?

  4. A gutsy and straight forward message from the Mayor. Bravo

  5. Patron Saint of Idiots | October 4, 2019 at 4:57 am |

    People please pay attention to what is happening.
    If Robert Brown can come in and make millions while we watch him in plain daylight
    how much has his boss–the council president–Jack Burrell–made?
    This is sad for Fairhope. There is no way we can be a top city and meet our needs
    with criminals in office. Robert and Jack are bad guys. The other “men” on the
    council are complicit at best and they have their secret deals too. Sickening.

    • So is Kevin. The 3 B’s. Not sure Jimmy and Jay can be trusted when they never stand up for change. We need leaders. Not fraternity brothers.

    • Testicle Lock Box | October 4, 2019 at 6:34 pm |

      The other “Men” are pussies. Remember when that bastard Burrell rapped the gavel and said that one of the pussy councilman Robertson was out of order?
      If I was half a man I would challenge Burrell but Robertson and Conyers are pussies and have given their testicles to the Three B’s
      How can they go home and look at their wives and children and expect respect?

      • They have never been given respect. Don’t need something that you have no desire for! They are such tiny men. They treat their wives and children like shit and most of them are good kids, some who are having trouble acting civil at times but what do you expect with nothing good to look up to! They don’t deserve sorry ass dads that they have. Just ask around or any of their friends. Y’all suck at being good dads and suck even more at being good citizens.

    • “Making millions?” Do you have proof you’d like to share?
