Lisbon Police Department Bends The Taxpayers Over!


Well, the 2012-2013 Annual Report is available at the Town Office for those interested in seeing where our tax dollars are being spent.  A quick review will bring to light some very unsettling and disturbing facts. 

Councilor Cote and our blog sites have been telling the people about the Police Department sucking up the majority of our tax dollars.  Chief Brooks has made every effort to conceal the exorbitant cost of operating the Police Department.  The 2012-2013 Annual Report shows how much the Police Department is spending on  SALARIES ALONE.  The figures on the left below will show what the Town Council approved for the entire Police budget and the figures on the right will show you just how much was spent on salaries alone.  Keep in mind, when you are reviewing these figures that the numbers on the right are JUST SALARIES and cover no other operating cost while the number on the left was approved to cover everything.

                                Approved by              2012-2013
     Division            Town Council        Annual Report Salaries

Police                       $943,132.00                $951,989.75
Animal Control            75,030.00                    36,842.90
Comm Center             227,066.00                  204,584.32
        TOTAL:         $1,245,228.00             $1,193,416.97

This brings up something that Councilor Cote and we have been telling the taxpayers and that is Chief Brooks, Jessica Maloy and Stephen Eldridge had been shifting tax dollars into the Police Department for years and this is the proof.  Take a look on Page 36 of the 2012-2013 Annual Report and review the salaries of just our Police Officers.  Four officers make more than $70,000.00 each.  One Sergeant ($75,130.58) makes more than Chief Brooks ($72,159.70).  Six officers make more than our Lieutenant ($62,546.63) does.  

These figures are just salaries and do not cover any other operating cost.  Is there any doubt, what caused our “unfavorable expenditure budget variance”?  The taxpayers had to use Undesignated Funds in order to cover these salary increases that were never approved by the Town Council.

The current Police Department under Chief Brooks is the taxpayer’s biggest nightmare.  Instead of our tax dollars being used to improve the community, these funds are being diverted to the Police Department to fatten their pockets.  This will not stop until the Interim Town Manager and the Town Council gets rid of the cause of this corrupt spending.  Chief Brooks has served this community long enough and the town can no longer afford to pay the high price for his service.  These “Good Old Boys” need to go because we can no longer afford them.

Krauthammer Says This is the Stupidest Line Ever Uttered By An American President

Charles Krauthammer says it isn’t a manhood issue with Obama; it’s an issue of a complete absence of strategic thinking. “It’s not a question of the heart; it’s a question of the head. This administration, this president do not have a strategic idea in their head.”
He recalls Obama’s speech before the UN in 2009 in which he said, “No nation can or should dominate another.” Krauthammer labels that remark the “single stupidest remark about foreign policy ever uttered by a president of the United States.” Dr. Krauthammer continues saying,
“He (Obama) continues to say no balance of power can ever endure and he went on to say that no alliance based on the divisions of the cold war, the ‘obsolete’ divisions of the cold war, makes any sense in this century.”

URGENT!! ALERT!! A Call For Help At The Bundy Ranch

Message from Jack Kimball (NH)
The situation at the Bundy Ranch is getting worse. We have an additional team heading to the Bundy Rach that will arrive tomorrow. We also have a small team from our CT friends that will arrive at the Ranch around the same time. Many more are needed. Spread the word. Also, you must watch this video that just came out. It’s called the Bundy Ranch Documentary. It features our very own Jerry DeLemus and Alex Bieniect. Make it go viral!”

“Important Summary Regarding Why the Bundy Ranch Event is happening
Some of you on the facebook page clearly do NOT have accurate information regarding Mr. Bundy and why this standoff has occurred so here is the best summary of the facts, to date. First of all, the Bundy’s owned their Ranch since 1870. They have lived their with their family for several generations. Back then and through the 1930′s the Bundy family, along with some 52 other cattle ranchers, used the expansive land surrounding them, for the grazing of their cattle herds. This they did for FREE as they were all tax payers and were entitled to the use of Public land. Then came the Bureau of land Management in the early 1940′s. That’s when the Fed’s took over control of the land. Once that happened, they established “grazing fees” to compensate for the use of the land. Bundy’s family actually paid those grazing fees for quite sometime until Mr. Bundy figured out their scheme. Then in 1993 he stopped paying the gazing fees and offerred to pay them to his own County. They refused to accept the fees. The reason he did this is that the BLM began increasing the grazing fees along with coming up with EPA issues like protecting the dessert tortoise. Thus they began restricting the grazing land and forcing the Cattlemen out. They used the Cattlemens own grazing fees to buy them out for a pittance of what the Ranches were worth. They were very successful at this in that they eliminated 52 or the 53 Cattle Ranchers that were originally there. Mr. Bundy is the last man standing. The reason 1993 is significant is that Agenda 21 was signed onto by George H W Bush in Rio in 1992 and soon later, bill Clinton began an agressive campaign to adhere to this UN plan to eliminate human beings from the majority of the open land in the West. Barak Obama has now put Agenda 21 in warp speed. The we find out that Harry Reid and his son have a sweetheart deal with a Chinese Company to come in and build a solar panel faciltiy on that very land. That’s why the strong armed effort was made to eliminate Mr. Bundy and his family. So, don’t believe the MSM BS. This is, and has been, an insideous effort to steal a man property and force him off his land. If you haven’t figured this out by now then you really have to begin paying attention. The fight for our Nations Liberty has began at the Bundy Ranch. Brave NH Patriots are there to defend Mr. Bundy and his family. They know what may happen to them and they are willing to pay that price. How about all of you?”

WND EXCLUSIVE Cattle Shot, Buried On Bundy Ranch

Nevada family in dispute with feds posts disturbing images

 Bob Unruh

The Nevada rancher in a fight with the federal government over grazing land his family has been using since the late 1800s is revealing some of the damage he blames on the U.S. government: cattle shot and killed and then dumped into trenches and buried.
The Bureau of Land Management contends Cliven Bundy owes more than $1.2 million in grazing fees, but Bundy insists the federal government is overstepping its authority, charging him to use the same land on which his ancestors grazed cattle a century ago.
The conflict reached a flashpoint when the government moved in armed officers April 5 and started rounding up the family’s cattle with the apparent intention of selling them off and keeping the money.
However, hundreds of individuals the family has described as “patriots” also moved in. Rather than spark a pitched battle, the federal officers retreated after a weeklong standoff, with Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., promising that the battle was not over.
The standoff  has resulted in damaged fences, damaged water troughs and dead cattle, the family charged.
Family members have created a website and a Facebook page where images have been posted.
One of the images was accompanied by a note that said: “Digging up 1 of the HUGE holes where they threw the cows that they had ran to death or shot. I feel that this NEEDS to be put out for the public to see.”

That whenever any Form of Government "Becomes Destructive" of these ends, it is the "Right of the People" to Alter or to Abolish It, and to Institute New Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.

Clueless or Cunning In Lisbon? The Rest of the Story


When the wise men, who were the Charter Commission wrote our town Charter they needed some protection to ensure the Charter was not abused.  The idea was to make sure the integrity and Charter remained intact at all costs.  In order to do this, the Charter Commission included safeguards with provisions that allowed the people to keep from making changes.

Part 2, Initiative and Referendum, Part 3, Recall and Part 4, Special Town Meeting are the provisions of the Charter that outline the procedures for the people to change our Charter; recall a councilor and decisions by our Town Council on the budget.   For Part 2 and Part 3, the Charter Commission included a special safeguard to ensure that it would be impossible for the people to change anything.  This provision states under Section 8.26 Results of Election in paragraph a, “… is at least equal to 30% of the total number of qualified voters who cast votes for Governor in the most recent gubernatorial election…” for Part 2.  

For Part 3 it reads in Section 8.31d “…An official shall be recalled when a majority of those voting thereon shall have voted in the affirmative so long as the total number of votes cast for and against recall is at least equal to 30% of the total number of qualified voters who cast votes for Governor in the most recent gubernatorial election. “

In order to meet this requirement, there has to be at least 1,177 voters who come out to vote.  In the most recent gubernatorial election, 3,922 voters turned out and cast their votes; so 30% of that number is 1,177. On June 11, 2013 there were 467 voters out of 6596 registered voters turned out to cast their vote.  As you can see 467 is a far cry from the 1,177 which would mean that any change for Part 2 & 3 would NOT have been passed regardless of the majority of voters’ decision because it would not be a valid election. 

Now for Part 4, Special Town meeting the requirement is just as high but the stipulation changed slightly.  Section 8.46 a, states “…so long as the total number of votes cast for or against the budget article at the special Town meeting is at least 250…”.  As you can see, this number is smaller but the reason the town did away with Town Meeting was because no one was showing up.

These stipulations are added to the end of the petitions process.  This means the people can go through the entire process only to fail in the end because they do not have enough votes to meet these requirements.  This is just another way to protect change to our Charter or our Town Council

Two Priests, a Nun, a Rabbi and the Pope could not get enough voters to turn out to meet these ridiculous requirements.

WND EXCLUSIVE Finally! A TV program for the whole family "Signed, Sealed, Delivered"

Touched by an Angel’ maker returns with inspiring new series
 Drew Zahn
 For years, “family-friendly television” has been practically an oxymoron.
But on Sunday, April 20, Martha Williamson, executive producer of the family favorite “Touched by an Angel,” returns to television after a 10-year absence with the debut of a new program called “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.”
WND obtained a preview copy of the first two episodes of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” which reveals the show is heartwarming, funny, inspiring and, perhaps most significantly, a program adults and children alike can enjoy sitting down and watching together.
“That was the goal,” Williamson told WND, “to create a show that we could all watch together and still be entertained.
“‘Touched by an Angel’ was on the air at a time when the networks still considered families a target audience,” Williamson continued, “but as you’ve seen over the last 20 years since ‘Touched by an Angel’ first premiered, the landscape of television has changed significantly. But the audience hasn’t gone away. People are still having children; families are still looking for things to do together.
“I actually stopped working after ‘Touched by an Angel’ wrapped to raise my own children,” Williamson explained. “And I found myself standing at the back of Wal-Mart against that wall where all the DVDs were, looking for things we could all watch together, and it was either little kid stuff that certainly entertained our children but after a while my eyes started to glaze over, or there were more sophisticated and adult things to watch that were not appropriate or just not interesting to our children. I realized I was standing next to all kinds of parents looking for the same thing, and we would all bemoan the fact that we couldn’t find something to watch.
“I kept expecting somebody to recognize the success of ‘Touched by an Angel,’ thinking it should be mirrored by someone else, and it never quite seemed to happen,” she said. “So, I finally said once our children are up and running, let me see if I can go back to work and put something on television again that I feel strongly about and encourages and elevates our families.”
The result is “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” an original series combining romance, comedy and drama following the lives of four postal workers who transform themselves into an untraditional team of detectives to track down intended recipients of undeliverable mail. Their missions take them out of the office into an unpredictable world where letters from the past can change lives when they arrive late, but somehow just on time.
“Signed, Sealed, Delivered” stars Eric Mabius (“Ugly Betty”), Kristin Booth (“The Kennedys”), Crystal Lowe (“Smallville”) and Geoff Gustafson (“Primeval: New World”). Special guest stars announced to-date include Valerie Harper, Della Reese, Valerie Bertinelli and Marilu Henner, who will portray supervisors in a revolving role featuring television icons.
“Signed, Sealed, Delivered” premiers Sunday, April 20, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, 7 p.m. Central, on the Hallmark Channel.

Clueless In Lisbon!


Councilor Roger Bickford

Council Chairman Lisa Ward

At last Tuesday night’s Town Council meeting, one of the agenda items read “2014-47 ORDER – Consideration of an order for Public Hearing on a proposed Charter Amendment to reduce the number of signatures necessary to call a Special Town Meeting to consider budget issues from 15 percent of the qualified voters voting in the last gubernatorial election to 10 percent of the qualified voters voting in the last gubernatorial election.

This is the latest attempt to keep the people from voting on the Municipal Budget by departments.  You can tell this because there are two other sections in our Charters that have the same requirement but they are NOT part of this Charter Amendment.  

The Charter Commission put this into the Charter because they thought that was a fair number to ensure misuse of the Charter.  However, if it is fair in one section it should be fair in all sections that currently have the same requirements.  If you change it in one area it should be changed for all the others because one is no more important than another.

Article VIII, Initiative, Referendum, Recall and Special Town Meetings of our Charter deal with petition requirements.  In Section 8.22(a); Section 8.31(b) 1 and Section 8.42(a) all read the same and that is:

    Section 8.22(a) – Number of Signatures.  Initiative and referendum petitions must be signed by qualified voters of the Town at least equal in number to 15 percent of the total number of qualified voters who cast votes for Governor in the most recent gubernatorial election.

    Section 8.31(b) 1 – Petitions - Number of Signatures.  Recall petitions must be signed by qualified voters of the Town at least equal in number to 15 percent of the total number of qualified voters who cast votes for Governor in the most recent gubernatorial election or, in the case of a recall of a Councilor elected from a district, signed by qualified voters of the district equal in number to at least 15 percent of the total number of qualified voters from that district who cast votes for Governor in the most recent gubernatorial election.

    Section 8.42(a) – Number of Signatures.  Petitions calling for a Special Town Meeting must be signed by qualified voters of the Town equal in number to at least 15 percent of the total number of qualified voters who cast votes for Governor in the most recent gubernatorial election.

As you can see that when dealing with petitions the requirement for the number of signatures is exactly the same so why are we ONLY amending one and not the others?  

Changes to our Charter should always be uniform because if they apply to one; they should apply to all.  When you have numerous sections with the same requirements, changing one should change them all because the rational for the initial requirement is the same for all.

This Charter Amendment should be immediately changed to include the other two sections of our Charter in order to keep it uniform.

This Charter Amendment has absolutely nothing to do with the people voting on the Municipal Budget by departments and for Councilor Ward and Bickford to indicate it does is totally ludicrous.  Having to gather X numbers of signatures and going through a time consuming process is not the same as voting on the Municipal Budget by departments.  This is nothing more than yet another delaying tactic by our Town Council to keep the people from voting on the Municipal Budget.

After six years of delays, surveys and referendum questions, it is time to stop the stalling and give the people what they have asked for.

TUMAB:Bundy Ranch...Follow The Money‏

Published on Apr 16, 2014
Gary Franchi reporting for the Next News Network:
“Since the Bundy Ranch story broke last week and culminated in a tense standoff with Federal agents on Saturday resulting in the release of the Bundy Ranch cattle we have been following the money. On the 10th we reported the Militia arrived in the area and cited a former BLM volunteer and Nevada Land Broker who revealed to us the true value of the land and the parties interested in it. In our on-going investigation into the money behind the Bundy Ranch Land Grab we present former BLM Volunteer Rusty Hill’s Records Research detailing his first hand experience in the Bunkerville area, its value to the Military Industrial complex – and most notably the corporations that bear Harry Reid’s own name in Bunkerville,- bordering USA lands and the Bundy Ranch.
So why do they want this land? Water, access to land, privacy and mineral rights – notably Magnesium Dolomite with one of its military applications as solid rocket fuel found in Tomahawk cruise missiles – friends it is much more than Chinese solar power.
In this investigation we provide the historical context to the lands around the Bundy Ranch, the mineral value of the land and it’s application in weapons manufacturing.
But here is where it get’s interesting. Using the public records from Clark County we disclose irregularities and anomalies in the public record of the sale prices of land surrounding the Bundy Ranch owned by the BLM, Cedar Development Corp, Zion Bank Corp, Bunkerville Compound LLC, AND Reid Bunkerville LLC who you will discover “paid nothing for the land”
This research reveals the highly suspicious activity surrounding the Bureau of land management, Cedar Development Corp, Zion Bank Corp and Reid Bunkerville LLC.
Due to the use of government force to remove Bundy “trespass cattle” and the lands that Reid Bunkerville LLC received at ZERO cost we can draw a line to their desire to run him off his land for their own gain – an American whose family settled that land over 100 years ago.
It’s time for a congressional investigation.”

Wednesday, April 16, 2014


Last night, the Town Council held a Public Hearing on the 2014-2015 Municipal and School Budgets and consideration on three bond issues – Public Works garage, Gym and the Track. \

I guesstimate that between 75 and 100 residents attended with the majority speaking on one or more of these issues.  These Public Hearings lasted a long time.  The input was received by the School Department and the Town Council very well.

Prior to the Public Hearings, Mr. Richard Green, Superintendent of Schools and Mr. Dale Olmstead, Interim Town Manager, briefed the Public on their portions of the budget.  Both of these gentlemen did an excellent job and were able to answer the questions asked by the audience.  They also gave presentations defending the bond issues that were before the people.  Again, a great job by both of these professionals!

Under Council Orders, Resolutions & Ordinances - The Council voted 7-0 for a Proclamation declaring May 4th through the 10th as Municipal Clerks Week.  

The Council also approved the 1st Reading of the Route 196 Design Standards and Guidelines by a vote of 7-0.  Next, the Council voted on the three bonds to be placed on the June ballot.  As far as the Public Works Garage the vote was 7-0.  As far as the Gym the vote was 5-2 with Councilors Bickford and Metivier voting NO.  The vote on the Track was the same as the Gym.  So all three bond issues will be place on the June ballot.

Next, the Council voted 7-0 to include two Charter changes.  The first to reduce the requirement of 15 to 10 percent of qualified vote voting in the last gubernatorial election to meet the requirement for a Special Town Meeting and second to adjust our Charter to match the states requirement for reference title 21-A for Election procedures.

The meeting adjourned at approximately 10:50 PM.

Recap Town Council Workshop - April 14th‏


The Interim Town Manager, Mr. Dale Olmstead, updated the Council on what he has learned pertaining to the Public Works garage.  Right now the insurance company is offering $300,000.00 dollars as a settlement.  Along with this cash money, the insurance company is going to pay for a few months rental fees.

This leaves the Council with several options:
1.  Repair existing building.
2   Build a new building.
3.  Move into as existing building.

According to Mr. Olmstead it would not be cost effective to repair the building because it was not an adequate facility for Public Works in the first place.  

Second, it would cost the town too much to build a new facility for Public Works. 

 Third, there are two buildings available in town to take care of our immediate needs but would have additional costs if the town wanted to expand for one and the other is readily made and would provide for a lot of town consolidation.

The two buildings are:
ETTI:  (64,000 square feet)
Longchamps (10,000 square feet – expandable)

Both of these building would need an appraisal before they could discuss price.  The appraisals have been ordered.
The Councilors discussed each option for almost an hour.  Chairwoman Ward allowed the Public to provide input and then adjourned the meeting without any vote by the Council.

SCGNEWS: BRAZEN - Harry Reid Vows to Escalate Crisis at Bundy Ranch in Spite of FBI Corruption Probe

The showdown at Bundy Ranch isn't over. Harry Reid is going for broke. 

Yesterday Senator Harry Reid made it very clear that he is going for broke in the showdown over the Bundy Ranch in Clark county, Nevada:
"Well, it's not over. We can't have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it's not over,"
The irony here is certainly not lost on the FBI, which was in the process of investigating Harry Reid for corruption, only to have that probe blocked by the Department of "Justice". The corruption probe, doesn't seem to be directly related to Senator Reid's dealings in Clark county, but the accusations were regarding the same type of behavior: profiting from his position through political favors.
This vow to escalate the showdown in Clark county once again also comes as evidence exposing the connections between Harry Reid, ENN, and the Bureau of Land Management have gone viral.

PLD: Ranchers And Empire In The American West


This column by Ryan W. McMaken originally appeared on the Ludwig von Mises Institute website on April 14, 2014.
The militarized siege of a cattle ranch near Bunkerville, Nev., drew national attention as dozens of federal agents, armed with machine guns, sniper rifles, helicopters and more descended on the ranch to seize cattle and people and generally to show everyone who’s boss.
The conservative press has framed the story in a variety of ways, casting the story both as matter of outright federal seizure of private land and as an absurd environmental crusade to save a tortoise from extinction.
The reality looks to be a little murkier, however, as is often the case when dealing with land ownership in the American West. Back in September, the Las Vegas Sun reported on the Bundy family and noted that troubles began 20 years ago when the family’s patriarch unilaterally determined that he would no longer pay the Bureau of Land Management use fees that have long been required to graze on federal lands. The exact legal and historical details of the Bundy family’s case will emerge slowly over time, but even if the family is completely in the wrong legally (which it probably is), it’s safe to say that taxpayer dollars might be better spent on things other than a shock and awe campaign waged against a tiny ranch in the middle of a Nevada desert. Nonetheless, this is just the latest dispute in a long history of ranchers jockeying with the Federal government over land use permits and land use regulations.

BDN: Attorney general: Watch out for Bureau of Motor Vehicles phone scam

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

AUGUSTA, Maine — The state’s attorney general is urging the public to be wary of a phone scammer claiming to be from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
The caller demands a fee be paid immediately or the driver will have a warrant for their arrest issued, according to Attorney General Janet Mills.
“If you receive one of these calls, hang up,” Mills said.
Over the last couple weeks, Mainers have been receiving calls claiming to be from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, Mills said. The scam artists have been using technology that mimics their real phone number, showing the call to be from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
Personal information should never be given out over the phone on calls that the caller did not initiate, Mills said.

For The Record, We Present: (N3): Bundy Ranch: What You Aren't Being Told by StormCloudsGathering

NextNewsNetwork's rebuttal.
"It is unfortunate when the "alternative media" tears each other down. I rarely get involved in such back in forth debates. However I need to set the record straight on clear LIES being distributed by a YouTuber that I rather enjoy watching in his latest video "Bundy Ranch: What You Aren't Being Told" "


In this morning's Sun Journal, Tuesday April 15, the Auburn City Council is calling for $million$ in cuts to the city budget.

I challenge the town of Lisbon's Town Council and Finance Committee to do the same.

Ways to cut:

Town Engineer:

MDOT is asking for  a $5,500 Trail Match

plus a $20,000 Trail Match.

Those $$$$'s should have been built into the $1,200,000,

One Million Two Hundred Thousand, dollars,plus Lisbon's

matching funds of $320,000, for a grand total of $1,520,000.


                         Savings $$25,500.

Savings could be realized if we had a Town Engineer that was actually a licensed Engineer.

Savings $$$ ?????.

Town Attorney:

Hire an attorney from Lisbon, Lewiston or Auburn instead of one who travels from Bath, some twenty plus miles each way @$150.00 per hour.


Police/Public Safety:

The Police Department receives Forfeiture money that could be used to pay for assault rifles, document imaging, mobile radios.
The list goes on, But asks the taxpayers to pay for these items.
In a budget of $1.000,000, One Million $$$$$, the Town Council and Finance Committee should be able to find significant savings.

Redevelopment Department:

About 2 years ago former Town Manager hired a Town Planner to the tune of $20,000 per year, to develop a Route 196 Master Plan and Sign Standards, and to assist the Planning Board.

The Route 196 Master Plan and Sign Standards is almost

completed, just needs to be accepted by the Town Council.

Why continue to pay $20,000 for a Town Planner when we

have a highly qualified Codes Officer in Dennis Douglass?

The Planning Board has new direction, thanks to Town Planner, Amanda Bunker, and  we are paying over $55,000 a year for a Redevelopment Director, who also heads up the Moxie Festival.

This is a Duplication of Services. 

A savings of $20,000 or $55,000.

The town Council has asked the School Department to cut their budget.

The Library Department is already bare bones but is willing to cut hours of service, a savings of only pennies compared to the police department! ! ! !

Other savings ?? Readers, taxpayers?
          A Challenge ! ! ! ! ! !

And yes, my name is under unpaid taxes,

both real estate and personal property.

The real estate taxes have been paid.

I am struggling as are many others.
