Ship of Fools in Palestine Texas

CITY COUNCIL REFUSES TO DO THEIR JOB…THE ONGOING CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY IMPACTS THE SAFETY AND FINANCIAL SECURITY OF OUR CITIZENS

I just schooled some other citizens of Palestine who said that our City Council – is not responsible for anything, not supposed to enforce laws and that I do not understand the role of city council who are just administrators.

I replied, I wrote and I teach:

The City Manager is the Chief Executive Officer of the City. It is his/her duty, under the City Charter, to execute and implement policies as established by the City Council. He/she is responsible for the overall coordination of the City’s governmental activities, for the efficient operation of the City of Palestine, provides management leadership to the staff and organization and communicates organization goals and values to the public.

The one currently employed in Palestine has failed to do this job. The performance review is reprehensible.

City council is just one step below US on the org chart. They must ensure that Palestine PD Chief Andy Harvey and his department are enforcing the law, that city auditor is publishing factual audits, that city attorney Ron Stutes is following the law, that grants management dept. is ensuring compliance with regulations and fighting fraud, that the city is operating safe and efficient……. the list goes on and on. City Council represents US in ensuring that ALL city departments are doing their jobs and NOT covering up the theft and waste of OUR money, judicial fraud bought with OUR tax dollars, outright theft of public funds , perjury by city officials and other crimes……Palestine City Council has REFUSED to do their job…..

My Thoughts, some of the Palestine City Council would like to do their job but are hesitant to do so. Why?  I suspect some of the other current members intimidate them. 

WE HAVE THE PROOF THAT YOU DESTROYED EVIDENCE, REPORTS, BANNED WHISTLEBLOWERS FROM CITY HALL / MEETINGS, LIED TO  A JUDGE AND SWORE EVERYONE TO SECRECY IN AN EFFORT TO CONCEAL THE ONGOING CONSPIRACY, JUDICIAL FRAUD, DECADES OF FRAUD / THEFT INVOLVING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, “COOKED” BOOKS, THEFT OF PUBLIC FUNDS, PERJURY

This headline from the Palestine Herald Press is only the beginning

City’s legal expenses for Laza could total $350,000  –Michael Maresh  Dec 18, 2018

Remember this Palestine; You the citizen hold the real power over these people. You can vote them all out of office. Several come up for reelection this year to include the Mayor.

Let me also point out some of the Federal Civil Rights cases are going to be heard around 2020. When that happens, I predict Palestine will suffer more economic loss as well as some very negative publicity. We need to start damage control now and purge the city of the corrupt officials. If the more honest ones do not stand up now, they will likely be compromised in the fallout.

DO THE RIGHT THING AND STAND………and instruct the Police Chief to return the new city pickup truck to the department he borrowed it from
