The Police Chief and the City Manager - Again!
We have it on good authority that there was some really good reasons why the last police chief left in such a huff. And we think they all lay at the doorstep of the City Manager, But what we recently heard regarding some highly controlled police seizure funds is of great concern. We are checking this out and will probably report our findings in the next edition of the Shadow. That is if some media outlets don't wake up, do some investigative reporting, and beat us to it.
So stay tuned for more!

Happy Fourth to my friends and readers. Had a nice talk with the County Chair while he was cleaning up his horse barn. Pretty deep stuff if I may say so. Wish he could clean up some the stuff at the Council, but then he is only one vote. He did give me some new assignments and I will keep you posted.
More of the Same Good Old Boys and Girls for the Charter Review Commission
Tomorrow, July 2, 2015, the County Council will appoint members of the 2015 Charter Review Commission. As reflected in the agenda item list of applicants, it is more of the same old tired list of campaign contributors who just want to make sure that their agendas (and not those of the average voter) are protected in any recommended changes to the Charter. You can read that list HERE ( a big file and will take some time to load), which was obtained from the published agenda.
This cast of actors includes, Glen Ritchey, J. Hyatt Brown, Glen Storch, and Stan Escudero, among others. All of whom we bet will get appointed by their surrogate Council Members that they supported with contributions during their election to the dais. The result will be no measurable changes for the good in the Charter and thus business as usual at the expense of the taxpayers and voters. We will not see any comprehensive reform to the backroom antics of the politicians or the senior county workers or elected ones, nor will there be anything to ensure that our tax dollars are spent wisely or that the voter's position on issues is reflected in the elected one's behavior. We will not see any new and needed controls added to the charter such as an Inspector General position to watch over the questionable actions of our government.
No readers, it will be business as usual and only the already rich and famous will benefit as Council Members like Deb Denys, Doug Daniels, and Pat Patterson, to name but a few, do their patrons bidding. Oh yes, as a result, your taxes will increase and more money and land will be given away (translation YOUR beaches) to developers.
The blogers have been very good with complying with the Shadow's rules on posting, so we are going to open the blog back up and you will not have to wait to see your blog posted. But if it falls backward, we will reinsitute the requirement that we scann all bogs. LETS KEEP IT RIGHT THIS TIME!
