LAID BARE:Butler Tells Council Communications Army "FIRE AWAY!" at Citizens

Postby Brian Essi » Wed Nov 01, 2017 6:06 am

FIRE AWAY !

This 8 page missive came from the City Hall's Bunker during their WAR against Lakewood residents.

It is a disgusting summary of lies, misinformation and propaganda put together by Butler and spin doctors.

It proves, once again, that Sam O'Leary lied in Court for Bullock, Marx, Nowlin et al. in Skindell v, Madigan

The document belies any "deliberations" by Council on 49-15 on the second and third readings.

Rather, it proves Council had made its decision and was conducting an all out WAR of the citizens of Lakewood.

And the 7 Member City Council Communications Army led the ATTACK.

Frankly, this document is a double-barreled blast of the most outrageous BS!

I encourage each reader to read this entire document carefully. As you read, you might want to tabulate the misrepresentations that you can identify. (You will be offended by its content.)

Our city administration and city council have zero credibility, if this is how they actually consider treating the public. Of course, this is no longer an "if" kind of question. This is how we were actually treated.

The City of Lakewood needs across-the-board municipal reform.

A few more points about this document and the officials who used it:

1. It is one more document to add to the other documents that demonstrate that material financial misrepresentations were made about the hospital closure transaction in disregard or in violation of the federal securities laws.

2. If I cannot trust my fellow Democrats, who hold local elective office, to protect a community hospital, the hospital jobs and the charity care provided by the hospital, how can I ever trust them to protect Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security later in their careers?

3. The incumbent candidates in the council-at-large race continue this hypocrisy in their joint campaign literature where they claim commitment to transparency and accountability.

What a hoot!

Let's bump something that matters.

Bulock, Marx, Nowlin
They hid. They lied.
Hold them accountable.
Vote for change.
Vote for a better Lakewood.

A few questions occur to me:
* This reflects the deep questions and concerns within the community yet, while some 48% of voters were against the plan, why did 100% of City Council support it? Why didn't even one speak out publicly?
* Insofar as there was probable malfeasance in the process - as demonstrated by Brian Essi and Mark Kindt - why hasn't the author of this memo, the Law Director and head of the prosecutor's office, recused himself from such legal questions?
* If council had examined this issue very closely, why did they need a "Cliff's Notes" version (like this) of the issues? Why did they need to be told what to say?

Also,
They like to imply the issue started in 2015, forgetting about the long period of decanting and the 2014 Metro offer. There's a reference in here to the decanting - essentially, "it was none of our business" - but no one objected when it was happening.

I've seen this before from Kevin Butler, referring to the second approach (and subsequent rebuff) made by city government to Metro in 2015 and forgetting about the 2014 offer, essentially, "Metro wasn't interested."

Maybe we can work up a chronology after the election.

Mr. Alaimo,

Excellant question & observation!

It would seem that the spin doctors for the Clinic, LHA and Summers fed this dishonest manure to City Mouthpiece--Butler who in turn served as the "hand in the sock" mouthing the manure Council members (the Sock-Puppets) spewed forth.

What make this so disgusting and laughable is that candidate Sock Puppets-- Nowlin, Marx and Bollock---have filled my mailbox with campaign mailers talking about their "experience" in moving the city "forward" and not "dividing" the community.

Yet they followed the Mouthpiece's orders and FIRED AWAY at Lakewood Residents with lies that divided them from 1/2 of Lakewood residents.

Their empty campaign literature talks about "negative politics that divide our community"!

They need to look in the mirror and face the paper trail of their lies that divided the community--and keep it divided.
