Points I found interesting in last nights meeting and questions that still remain:
Something is fishy here. Very fishy. As the saying goes, if you lay down with dogs, you get fleas.
Mr. Lovetro, Your treatment of one of the longest serving ELECTED board members was deplorable, and as Chairman, leaving it up to Tom Weeks to thank Mr. Don Smith for his years of service was a telling window into your character. Furthermore, I found it extremely interesting that one of your first orders of business was in calling out Mr. Sam Schwalm for stating on his website that he was a board member and proclaiming how you had Mr. Terrens draft a letter to Mr. Schwalm stating he cannot claim to be a board member until he takes his seat in January. Mr. Lovetro, are you aware that on the PSWID Website, under the "Board of Directors Info" listing, Mr. Schwalm is listed as a "Board Member"?
Mr. Lovetro and Mr. Greer, unless you are both incredibly tone deaf, I think you heard last night that an overwhelming amount of people in the PSWID area do not support your actions. If both of you gentlemen truly are only interested in doing what is right... then resign... and save us all the time, effort and money that a recall will entail.
Questions we should be askingl. -
I had posted this on another thread, but feel it bears re-posting here.
Mr. Lovetro seems to think that since Mr. Greer reimbursed the district for $2290.00, give or take a little, and "Apologized" for his actions, all should be forgiven.
NOT SO! Without having any receipts, Mr. Greer should be forced to reimburse the entire amount charged to the card. Simply by saying "Home depot charges were for PSWID business" does not cut it. He could have been buying gifts for friends, power tools for himself, materials for his own home, any number of things, and I for one am not willing to merely accept his word that they were "PSWID Purchases". If we don't have receipts... we have no proof.
Secondly, Mr. Lovetro seems to think of the PSWID as his on little fiefdom and that running things by intimidation and tit for tat accusations is the way he can get what HE wants out of the PSWID. Mr. Lovetro, the PSWID is set up for the betterment of the community, not for you to feel a sense of empowerment. You are personally responsible for making a small community organization a hostile environment where your own petty issues are played out in soap opera fashion. The stories and rumors surrounding the PSWID are unbelievable, and as a resident of Pine, I can say that we are too small of a community to be having these issues ruin what should be a straight forward organization.
Turbidity? No Problem... they have these crazy things called Filters. Problem solved. Tetra Tech recommended them and was set to install them, that is until Mr. Lovetro made dealing with the PSWID so uncomfortable that Tetra Tech washed their hands of us.
Mr. Greer and Mr. Lovetro BOTH need to step up and do the right thing... resign.
Robert Bird. Life Long Democrat who passed away a few years back... known a "The Conscience of the Senate"... Oh, and Card Carrying member of the KKK and a Klan "Recruiter" during his 20's and 30's... But he saw the error of his ways.
Ted, people have a RIGHT to say what they want, with few exceptions. It is the 1st amendment for a reason. You do NOT have a RIGHT to not be offended. Sorry... that's just the way it is.
Ms. Steele, I believe I AM doing something about it. Things START by awareness being raised about an issue.
I am glad your "Dream" is not broken and would like to hear what your "Dream" is.
Well said Sue.
I have many questions as well. -
Thanks Pat. I appreciate the kind words.
