LAID BARE: Nowlin Played Politics w/ Healthcare--Deceived Courts to Favor Summers/CCF over Metro and LKWD Lives

Postby Brian Essi » Wed Oct 04, 2017 7:08 am

Read this letter authored by Candidate Ryan Nowlin back in 2015 and ask yourselves the following questions:

1. In 2015, Nowlin and the City had engaged high priced Thompson Hine lawyers to help them navigate the healthcare debacle--why did domestic relations lawyer Nowlin author such an ill-conceived and insulting letter to Metro and make it immediately public?

2. Why did Nowlin treat CCF and Metro so differently-- while Nowlin was meeting is secret session concerning the backroom CCF deal, was he grandstanding in public to help Summers's political campaign at the expense of lives and the health and welfare of Lakewood residents?

3. Nowlin wrote of his "obligation" as a community steward to review proposals, but what about his duty to engage in an open and lawful process to invite ALL suitors to the city?

4. Was Nowlin's short 5 day period a reasonable time frame to impose upon Metro, when they gave CCF 5 years?

5. Finally, Nowlin's lawyers in Skindell v. Madison claimed that they had to deal with the negotiations in secret due to the Graham/Devito case---but Nowlin follwed a public grandstanding strategy with Metro--Isn't that an effort to deceive the court's?

Consider Summers' email to his campaign manager when Nowlin's letter had the desired effect of turning Metro away:

"This should help us." "Us" means Summers and his political campaign with Jay Foran's wife--who also worked with Lakewood Schools?

So Nowlin (who was earlier in May, 2015 implicated in an ethics inquiry) played politics with lives and healthcare of Lakewood residents to help Summers get re-elected, help CCF make profit and help his own interests at our expense.

If I recall correctly, this was the second round with Metro. The first was the year before (2014) when they submitted their detailed proposal to continue operating the hospital. This was at a time when Metro was planning it's major rebuilding effort which is still in the future. When the proposal was ignored/rejected, Metro made other plans. By the time the city contacted Metro in 2015, the ship had sailed.

That's not accurate---Dale Miller claimed he got Metro to back down in May, 2015.

I have a question and an observation:

How does the addressee of this email (L. Foran) have anything to do with the Letter of Intent and the activities of city council as they attempt to evaluate the proposal contained in the January 2015 letter of intent? Is L. Foran a public employee? Or serve as a governmental appointee on a governmental committee?

And to Mr. Alaimo's points:

The Subsidium process had inate structural flaws and built-in biases that prevented the Lakewood Hospital Association trustees or board members from ever conducting a realistic search for a new provider to operate Lakewood Hospital. Metro wasted five or sixth months making proposals to Subsidium and, I believe, ultimately recognized that it was participating in a flawed, perhaps, rigged process. Hence, the written withdrawal letter of October 3, 2014.

The Nowlin letter along with other emails circulated from the city to the county seem to suggest that there was an attempt in 2015 to actively suppress a revived proposal from Metro. This is consistent with the city administration's refusal to provide any consideration to Surgical Development Partners.

L. Foran is most likely Lynn Foran, or Jay Foran's wife. Although Mrs. Foran is (or was) active with LHF, the Chamber of Commerce, and similar groups, I am too perplexed as to why she appears to be the addressee of this e-mail.

Although it has been rumored that Mr. & Mrs. Foran are shadow "background characters" in this. Some have even gone as far to allege that Jay is actually running the city, and not Summers.

That may not be so hard to believe.

Lynn Foran was Summer's campaign manager.

So, the evidence suggests that Nowlin was operating in the Mayor's political inner circle on the plot to "tree" Metro in an effort to

The heavily redacted record below--withheld for over 2 years and produced on August 16, 2017 shows Nowlin was an eye witness Insider all along.

What is he still hiding from the public about Metro for political purposes?

Lynn Foran was Summer's campaign manager.


Then, once again, this is another misdemeanor violation of the Ohio Revised Code, Section 9.03(D) that prohibits the misuse of public assets or property for political purposes. Mr. Bennano served time for doing something similar to this. The Mayor is prohibited by statute from conducting his political campaign from his city hall computer.
