Lisbon Taxpayers Pay For Incompetency, But Why?

WHY ARE WE PAYING FOR INCOMPETENCY??

At the last Town Council meeting, there was an agenda item under Other Business called “Unitil Paving Proposal”.  This proposal was submitted by the Town Engineer, Ryan Leighton (See Attached). 






The proposal lacks several items such as a map of the route, distances and who was going to be doing the trenching.  During the discussion by the Council and the Interim Town Manager, it came out that Public Works would be doing all the trenching.  A minor detail left off the original request.  This agenda item was tabled until next week during the Special Town Council meeting.

On the agenda for May 27, 2014, there is no “Audience Participation” so the people will not have a chance to speak on this subject.  I do not believe that even if the people could speak would it be heard.  I believe this has already been decided and the council will approve this proposal.  The fact that Public Works will be doing the trenching, at no cost to either Unitil or the Brunswick Housing Authority, and the people are going to be forced to pay an additional amount for paving is crazy.  Why isn’t the trenching by Public Works not sufficient payment for this project by the taxpayers.

Most of you do not know this but a former council sold Brunswick Housing Authority 4 Campus Avenue for $1.00 and with it went over a MILLION dollar grant for the renovation of the building by Federal Grant.  The property at the time was valued at $265,050.00.  I understand that the Brunswick Housing Authority is a non-profit organization but the Town of Lisbon is not.  The Town should not be making concessions like this and now the Town is willing to do all the trenching and then pay for half of the paving even though there is no benefit to the town from the MTM center to 4 Campus Avenue.  Why should the taxpayers be forced to pay anything for this project?

Please review this proposal by Mr. Leighton and tell me if you believe that this inept performance is worth the $78,000.00 plus Mr. Leighton receives as a salary from the town.  This is exactly what you get from an individual that has absolutely no credentials for the position. 

So why does the Interim Town Manager and the Town Council accept a proposal that is incomplete and does not present ALL the facts in order for the Council to make a competent decision?

Maine Democrat State Rep Lets Rip: Truckers "Don't Have A Lot Of Brains In Their Heads"


Maine Democrat State Rep Lets Rip: Truckers
"Don't Have A Lot Of Brains In Their Heads" 
Democrat Rep. Brian Bolduc of Auburn attacks
working Mainers in email rant


Augusta - The Maine Republican Party is calling attention to what they say is an offensive statement, by State Representative Brian Bolduc, D-Auburn, in an aggressive, angry email that was forwarded to the Maine Republican Party.




"Representative Bolduc demonstrates a level of disrespect in this email that I believe the hard-working people of Maine will find shocking," said Jason Savage, executive director of the Maine Republican Party.

"Not only is Representative Bolduc clearly bullying the recipients of the email, he also takes a deeply offensive shot at hard-working Mainers who drive truck for a living," said Mr. Savage.

"For a politician representing a party that claims to look out for working people, showing this level of contempt for those very working people is revealing," said Mr. Savage.
In the email, Representative Bolduc says, in regard to truck noise on his street, the following (emphasis added):
"We need more police survalence to crack down on this shit. They rumble past our homes before they get to the bridge and to turn onto mill street especialy those god damed lumber trucks. They release those breaks and our floors and windows rumble and the sound scares pets and children in our homes. You would think the drivers would have enough common courtesy not to do this infront of residential homes but then again one look at them and you can see they probably dont have a whole hell of allot of brains in their heads."

In addition, Representative Bolduc issues sharp orders to the

email recipients:
 

"I want a cruiser stationed on this road (you can use my driveway) every day between 630 am and 8pm (wich is when the traffic is running) for a week and i want to see citations stacking up or ill have every damned resident of this town who lives on a busy road in that city council chamber!"


"Truck drivers are a back-bone of Maine's economy," said Mr. Savage.  

"This communication is particularly offensive, and we are calling on Maine Democratic Party Leadership to join us and denounce Representative Bolduc's offensive words immediately."

See full email below with identifying information of recipients redacted.

Lisbon Politics Getting Down And Dirty:National Republican Party Leaders have chosen to ignore duly elected delegates


Just have a
                                                        question for
                                                        some of you
                                                        out... 
Gina M. Mason 5:31pm Aug 26

Just have a question for some of you out there. Do any of you think it to be right for a person who lives in one town to represent another during the Caucus/Convention process? True story it happened, talk about honorable! You know who you are! And those in charge allowed it to go on and did nothing about it! Proof is available.


 The Republican's put out a list of delegates to replace the duly and legally elected delegates at the Maine Republican State Convention held during May in Maine.  Twenty (20) some odd delegates were elected to represent Ron Paul at the Republican National Convention in  Tampa Fl.  Doesn't it seem odd that from a very reliable source in the loop that Gina's son Garrett and her cousin Dale are in Florida as supposed delegates for this convention. HMMMM,,, sometimes things really stink. But because they are all related to an honest car salesman that makes it ok.  See money can buy you dishonest actions.  The damned Repulsive Republicans.   
 Peter Reuter: reporting live from Florida




Last May I was one of the Republican  Delegates to the Maine Convention. At that convention, by majority vote, we elected our Maine Delegates and Alternates.  

 I witnessed many of the underhanded tactics used by “the Romney Camp” to try to invalidate the peoples choice.  The “Ron Paul Camp” played  by the  rules, they didn’t use shady measures they had the majority.


 I  was one of those attendees handed a “fake slate”, by  a Romney supporter  wearing a  Ron Paul Button.  (The real slate was printed on Staples paper.) When  Romney supporters printed these fake slates they forgot to print them on the proper paper thus making them fairly easy to spot.

Being seated next to the microphone on the main floor of the auditorium,  I  clearly saw and heard  at least a couple dozen  Romney Supporters nominating  Paul people in an attempt to  split the vote. 


 Any honest person that attended the Maine State  Convention will confirm my statements.  

The two long days I spent at the  Convention were in vain.  According to the National Leaders of the Republican party I made the wrong choice.  I should have voted for candidates that supported their choice Mitt Romney.

 Yesterday the leaders in our party corrected this mistake by removing  Maine Republicans duly elected delegates and replaced them with delegates committed to Mitt Romney.


The only thing more despicable than the party leaders  rejecting our duly elected delegates is the  political scabs that took advantage of this corruption by filling the
vacated delegate slots .
Some of these replacement scabs  were the very people rejected by majority vote at the Maine Convention.


The Republican Party leaders may be successful in  stealing my delegate choice in Tampa, but they will never be able to force me to vote for their choice in November.   I will never vote for  a candidate that uses underhanded methods to win an election. 

 
I will vote for the truest honest Christian choice I will write in Dr. Paul.

Respectfully

Wake Up America ~ Jon McNaughton

We are enslaved to our debt. Wake up, America! Before it is too late...

Every man, woman and child in America is enslaved to the national debt. As an artist, I have painted my vision of the dire circumstances that surround us. Now, more than ever, each American must make a choice: we must unlock the shackles that enslave us, or will we lose our freedom. It is my hope and prayer that America will "wake up" before it is too late.

Those who are familiar with my work know that I like to use symbolism and metaphor to engage the viewer. See if you can find and decipher the many symbols in this image by visiting http://www.jonmcnaughton.com

In the painting I have intentionally hidden six keys that represent solutions that will release us from the chains of economic and political bondage. Find these keys and share them with as many Americans as you can. If we don't "wake up" future generations may not know what it means to be free.

-Jon McNaughton, political artist

Republican Liberty Caucus: RICHARDSON ENDORSED IN MAINE 2nd CD








AUGUSTA, ME (May 17, 2012) – Blaine Richardson won endorsement of the Republican Liberty Caucus National Committee in his GOP primary for the 2nd Congressional District seat from Maine.
          “Blaine Richardson has demonstrated leadership in military and civilian life which is an asset for a member of Congress,” said RLC National Chair Dave Nalle. “Receiving the Republican Liberty Caucus endorsement is a testament to his commitment to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, and free enterprise.”
          Richardson’s endorsement will be announced to Liberty Republicans nationally, presenting him as the best candidate to defeat Democrat Rep. Mike Michaud in November.
          The Maine RLC Chapter voted unanimously during its state meeting to recommend that Richardson be endorsed and the RLC National Committee endorsement vote was unanimous. RLC bylaws require that federal office endorsements be made by the National Committee upon recommendation of the state chapter. The state chapters may endorse legislative and gubernatorial candidates without input from the national organization.
          “Blaine Richardson is the kind of leader Maine needs to take an active role in Washington to turn the economy around and restore personal liberty. I am pleased that the RLC National Committee saw these qualities. He will be a great Republican candidate and an outstanding Congressman,” said Maine RLC Chair R. Kenneth Lindell of Frankfort, a former member of the Maine legislature.
          Lindell said, “Blaine Richardson had a distinguished military career, including time advising the Pentagon on national defense issues. Yet he saw dangers in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which gives the President power to detain and hold civilians indefinitely and spoke out against it because it violates the Constitution. We need more people with Blaine’s integrity in Washington.”
          Nalle added, “At the Republican Liberty Caucus we believe that less government means more liberty. We advocate the principles of individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise. We work in the Republican Party because we believe it is the best vehicle for bringing about the political changes we want and we believe that Blaine Richardson will become part of the growing number of Liberty Republicans advancing those goals in Washington.”
          Blaine Richardson retired with the rank of Captain after a distinguished 30 year career in the US Navy. He was an aviator who saw duty in four conflicts and holds one of the highest security clearances to advise at the highest levels of the Defense Department.  Richardson worked his way up from flight school during the Vietnam War. During the Iraqi conflict in 2003, he was the Military Liaison Officer for Military Sealift Command which was responsible for the 216 ships which brought cargo and supplies to ports in Kuwait and Iraq.
          He was the Naval Liaison Officer to the State of Maine under both Governors McKernan and King. He was appointed by Governor McKernan, to the committee to oversee the DEP's implementation of hazardous chemical and waste reduction regulations. During the first Gulf War, his unit out of Bangor was the first one to be called up and he was stationed in Stuttgart, Germany, where Richardson was responsible for shipping General Schwarzkopf ‘s 7th Corps. During Haiti under President Clinton, he was called up to organize the immense relief effort by sea.
          Richardson returned to Maine when he ended his military career and became a job-producing businessman. He was involved in his family's greenhouse business - The Green Thumb - in Rockport for ten years, then moved on to become Code Enforcement Officer in Rockport. In 2000 he moved to Belfast and started his own construction company - The B. Richardson Company - working with his wife Laura, an interior designer, building and renovating houses.
          Richardson is a member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and of the National Rifle Association (NRA).

          Founded in 1991, Republican Liberty Caucus is a nationwide grassroots IRS Section 527 political organization registered with the Federal Election Commission, made up of libertarian-leaning Republicans who work within the party for policies which promote smaller government and individual liberty.
Current members of Congress who had won RLC endorsement include Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, Rep. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Rep. Tom McClintock of California. 
Maine Gov. Paul LePage was endorsed in the 2010 GOP primary by the Maine RLC as well as five State Senators and seven members of the Maine House.

RLC endorses Bennett for Senate‏

REPUBLICAN LIBERTY CAUCUS

AUGUSTA, ME (May 14, 2012) – Former Maine State Senate President Rick Bennett has won the endorsement of the Republican Liberty Caucus National Committee in his GOP primary for United States Senate from Maine.

“Rick Bennett has shown leadership skills badly needed in the Senate,” said RLC National Chair Dave Nalle. “Receiving the Republican Liberty Caucus endorsement is a testament to his commitment to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, and free enterprise.”

Bennett’s endorsement will be announced to Liberty Republicans nationally, presenting him as the best hope to keep Maine’s Senate seat in the Republican column.

The Maine RLC Chapter voted unanimously during its state meeting last week to recommend that Bennett be endorsed. RLC bylaws require that federal office endorsements be made by the National Committee upon recommendation of the state chapter. The state chapters may endorse legislative and gubernatorial candidates without input from the national organization.

“I am pleased that the RLC National Committee saw in Rick Bennett qualities which we in Maine have known for a long time. He will be a great Republican candidate and an outstanding Senator,” said Maine RLC Chair R. Kenneth Lindell of Frankfort, a former member of the Maine legislature.

Lindell said, “Rick Bennett fought hard in Augusta for sound fiscal policies to protect the future of Maine families and has experience in the private sector helping the economy and creating jobs. We need more people with Rick’s background in Washington.”

Nalle added, “At the Republican Liberty Caucus we believe that less government means more liberty. We advocate the principles of individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise. We work in the Republican Party because we believe it is the best vehicle for bringing about the political changes we want and we believe that Rick Bennett will become part of the growing number of Liberty Republicans advancing those goals in Washington.”

Bennett is currently CEO of GMI Ratings, a world-renowned research firm headquartered in Portland, Maine, with offices in New York, San Diego and London. Under his leadership since 2006, GMI Ratings has grown from a money-losing start-up to a profitable enterprise employing fifty people in Maine alone. GMI Ratings is known around the world for promoting long-term decision-making for corporations, and for measuring those risks that can lead to large losses for strapped pension funds and other institutional investors. GMI Ratings is also known for pointing out when corporate CEOs are being rewarded with high pay and benefits even as companies lose money – a practice they advocate against.

For the last decade, Bennett has also served on the board of directors of GWI, the 60-plus-person telecom company and internet service provider based in Biddeford, Maine, where he has helped that business adapt and grow in a volatile, fast-moving market. Prior to GMI and his work assisting the telecom company, he worked with a number of job creating Maine businesses including a manufacturing company.

Bennett’s work has been cited in numerous publications including The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, USA Today, Fortune, and Barron’s. Rick Bennett was named by Global Proxy Watch as one of the “10 people around the world who had the most impact of corporate governance in the previous year”. And since 2008 he has been recognized annually by Directorship magazine in its list of the 100 “most influential people in corporate governance and the boardroom.” 
 
Rick Bennett has spoken publicly about corporate accountability issues at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Columbia University, the USC Marshall School of Business and The Conference Board, among other institutions. Additionally, Bennett is a non-executive director of Trucost plc, an environmental data firm, and since 2009 he has been annually elected to the Board of Governors of the International Corporate Governance Network.

Bennett was elected unanimously as President of the Maine Senate in the historic power-sharing agreement with the Democrats in the 120th Maine Legislature. He previously served in the Maine House of Representatives.
Bennett is completing a four year term representing Maine on the Republican National Committee and will be a delegate to the Republican National Convention at Tampa. He is a former Vice Chair of the Maine Republican State Committee.

Founded in 1991, Republican Liberty Caucus is a nationwide grassroots IRS Section 527 political organization registered with the Federal Election Commission, made up of libertarian-leaning Republicans who work within the party for policies which promote smaller government and individual liberty.
Current members of Congress who had won RLC endorsement include Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, Rep. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Rep. Tom McClintock of California.
Maine Gov. Paul LePage was endorsed in the 2010 GOP primary by the Maine RLC as well as five State Senators and seven members of the Maine House.

First Lisbon Republican Fundraiser Results‏


First Fundraiser Results



  Well the results are in for YOUR first fund raising event of 2012. I'd like to take a moment to thank all the core people involved in this effort, especially Randy and Karen Crafts. Without the over and above effort of this fine family YOUR event would have been impossible. Randy and Karen gave us permission to use part of the parking lot at the Big Dipper as well as donating part of the profits from selling 2yd loads of organic loam (remember it's that time of year so give him a call or me for that matter and get a head start on your yard or garden this year) then, rallied his family to assist, he called John up at the car lot and he brought up a dozen red white & blue balloons and John senior brought down items for the sale.
       The next group of citizen volunteers is a rather small group compared to the 1700 + registered republicans in town.They were the boots on the ground, the members who cleared out there basements and set up every morning and took it down every night. I thank you with all my heart and as requested these people shall remain nameless, I will leave it up to our membership to become involved and as you do you will have no problem identifying these great Americans,  the citizens of Lisbon Falls Maine !
 
        Finally and most importantly the people who made the extra effort to take time out of there busy schedules to come by and leave some donations or make maybe a small purchase or leave us a cash donation. Thank You all and I encourage to become more involved.
 
        There were some great moments and a lot of hard work done over the past three days and I will be posting some stories and pictures on YOUR website as soon as I recover (whew). THE GRAND TOTAL FOR THIS YEARS FIRST FUND RAISING EVENT IS.....................WAIT FOR IT..............$1,137.32 !!!!!!
