So, now the forces of obstruction on the city council have taken their foolishness to another level. They are saying that the mayor bringing his agenda to the public is unethical. They are scheduling a sham "special meeting" for tomorrow night to pass a sham resolution wherein they will ask the state ethics board to look into the mayor's use of the public access channel to speak to the residents of Plainfield about his agenda. After speaking to someone from the state's ethics board yesterday, it is clear that there have been no ethics violations. The Corporation Counsel has also told them that there are no violations and that nothing the mayor did or said was illegal.
Simply put, the Plainfield Obstructionists have no leg to stand on--they are simply playing politics--along with their benefactor, Jerry Green. I fully expect them to come out with a foul mailing piece wherein they attack me and the rest of our team. You can bet on it--many of you remember the foul pieces that are Jerry Green's stock-in-trade--be on the lookout for his trash.
When I arrived at the meeting, outgoing Councilman Reid was completing his usual time-wasting harangue. Appointed Councilwoman Taylor then went on at length spouting a bunch of nonsense (as she usually does) about her "support for the mayor" while obstructing the agenda that exposed her as ill-informed and unqualified to do anything to help the city. She kept repeating herself to the point that those in attendance began looking at their watches--time to stop blathering.
The absurdity of the entire evening was heightened by yet another pathetic and embarrassing appearance by the former mayor (she of the failed and corruption-filled administration, ethical violations, illegalities, hundreds of thousands of $$ spent on personal "bodyguards," tens of thousands of $$ wasted on food for herself and her cronies, budgetary disasters, etc.) who has nothing better to do with her time since being turned out of office by the voters of Plainfield.
Again, the countless times in which Obama has taken his case to the public-- think of the obstructionism by Republicans in Congress that led us to the fiscal cliff--means that he is unethical? According to the "logic" of the Plainfield Obstructionists, the answer could only be "yes."
The election is six days away and the Plainfield Obstructionists want to attack the forward progress of our city by deflecting from their own ethical lapses--putting the residents of Liberty Village in jeopardy of losing their homes to fulfill their mentor Jerry Green's agenda--to make up some bizarre last-minute attack on a mayor who has been in office for merely 19 weeks. It is unconscionable. I hope folks see how these councilors are impeding our city's future with their petty foolishness.
