Councilman responds to mayor’s letter

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

The Mayor better smell his shoes, because he didn’t step in it, he jumped in it with both feet!

The Mayor says, “The protocol is to allow the speaker to finish the presentation and not interrupt until the presentation is complete.” Then why was he joking and laughing out loud? It is my understanding that the gentleman asked if there were any questions, so I tried to ask. The real issue is, the Mayor is so fixated on not letting me speak that he just tries to stop me from speaking in any part of the meeting. Some of you will remember when I belched and said excuse me, and he said not now! What a joke!

Asking why the police chief stepped down. Personnel matters are discussed in open meetings. As Brewer does not understand and department heads are appointed every two years in July which Brewer does not understand either.

A simple, personal reasons would have sufficed. No, he had to go into another tantrum. I did not want to know if the chief was ill or perhaps seeing a psychiatrist. Now if he is seeing a psychiatrist or maybe even a heart doctor, then maybe he should not be wearing a badge or carrying a firearm.

Department heads are appointed every two years and if anyone listens to the tape or watches the video, it will show I did not question the appointment of the department heads, although I did vote against them. I did question the way it was put on the agenda (by Mayor and council). I know I did not request it be put on the agenda.

Conflict of interest: Brewer stated that I was giving my daughter a raise when, in fact, raises were not discussed and no raises were given this year.

Barcelo does not say that he and his brother both discussed salaries and wages for his daughter and their relatives and voted for their salaries and benefits last year. They still sit in every meeting and vote and pass the agenda which also includes wages and benefits paid to their family.

Barcelo says, “I Mayor Barcelo, am very tired of babysitting Joe Brewer during all the council meetings.” I thought the D.E.S. took his babysitting license away! Wow! He also states that he will have to continue babysitting because a recall would be too expensive.

Let’s back up a few months. Lets see if anyone can remember when they in fact, had started gathering signatures against me for a recall. Can anything but lies come out of this person?

In summary: The Mayor could not run a meeting by Robert’s Rules of Order if he was ordered to. He has been in office for 24 years and still does not have a clue on running a meeting.

Remember he swore an oath to abide by the town ordinances. Town ordinance and the town council rules and procedures specify that the meetings be run by Robert’s Rules of Order. The Town Procedures states, “The Mayor shall act as chairman of the council and preside over its meetings in accordance with Robert’s Rule of Order.”

Next time you see the Mayor ask him why he refuses to use Robert’s Rules of Order to run the meetings. I am betting he won’t give you a straight answer.

I asked him why he took council comments off the agenda and he did not have the whiskers to answer me.

He does not want to allow the public to participate in the meetings and he does not want the council (me) to have a say.

All of these stripes on a person with 24 years of service. He talks about babysitting, he should crawl back into his crib, put his pacifier in his mouth and shut the orifice he utters out of.

/s/ Joseph S. Brewer
