And another Letter…Off To City Hall

Okay…This Is A Public Matter For Everyone
Hello Louise…
This is the second time in one week that I have sent this request in, I assume I will have to send a registered letter or something to ensure you have actually received this.
Can you tell me what the status of the resolution from November 2, 2006 regarding the open meeting for the info Energy matter is?
Here’s a copy and paste of that resolution…
Whereas the taxpayer is the sole shareholder of Woodstock Hydro; And Whereas there is public concern of the operations and the cost of its subsidiary Info Energy; And Whereas Council is now in receipt of information pertinent to its operation; Be it resolved that the City Clerk organize a public meeting to be held tentatively on Friday, November 10th 2006 at 2 p.m. to discuss the operations of Woodstock Info Energy; And further that the aforementioned date is established based on the availability of the consultant. Carried.
Can you tell me why the meeting has never been arranged(it apears as though council left this in your hands….as well, 3 councillors(present and former) have told me this is your responsibility now as the matter was sent to you and they seem intent on blaming you for the no show on the meeting as they say it is your responsibility to make the arrangements and they wondered why this hasn’t been done as well)and is there a problem with the availability of the consultant since November 2006 that would prevent him from attending this meeting?
Seems like an awful long time for someone to be unavailable.
I am under the impression that council must rescind that resolution or put it to use…one or the other, but they cannot have it both ways.
If the meeting will not be held, then I would like to ask for delegate status at the next council meeting (which i presume is the first week of July)where the questions I will ask are pertaining to the Info Energy scandal, and the actions of the city administration on the matter…
Info Energy was deemed to be a local board by extension, and therefore the actions of the appointed councillors on the board of directors are covered under the OMA contrary to what was stated last year during discussions of the matter.
Involved parties argued that as this was not a local board, and that they were not responsible to the City….contrary to what the Integrity Commissioner has said regarding that situation.(he deemed that info Energy was a local board)
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These are the questions that can be put on the agenda.
1/ If the city clerk was asked to put this meeting together, then why has this not taken place? Is there a reasonable explanation for why the meeting was not held?
2/ If the city clerk was asked to quash the meeting, then who instructed her to do so and for what reasons? Is it not the city clerks function to follow the direction of council?
3/I am asking council to revisit the resolution of November 2, 2006 and to express their considerations through a recorded vote on the matter once and for all to alleviate the concerns of the citizens of Woodstock and to restore faith in the fundementals of the city administrative capabilities and the people who work there.
Please send me confirmation of the date, and I will be there.
Kind Regards,
Jim Bender

    bullshit…..
    From the Woodstock Municipal Code

    STAFF
    Chapter 92
    CLERK – APPOINTMENT

    Article 2
    RESPONSIBILITIES
    92.2.1 Duties – imposed – authority – Municipal Act

    by section 228 of the Municipal Act, 2001, c. 25 and shall also

    Why not let sleeping dogs lie. there is absolutely no reason to revisit this and lose harmony in the City. With all Michael has done for this City you should be ashamed at yourself for trying to accuse him of breach of trust like that asshole Nadalin. Shame on you.

    Is anonymous #3 sugesting like most of the City that the election was a hoax. (Anonymous #2 doesn’t count because we know it is Harding).How dare you. That election was way above board. Honest. We were there in the back room when the tabulators were “repaired” and they looked good to me. So what are a few bugs. Michael was there too so you can ask him as well… Go ahead ask him before he goes to jail.

    Very funny satire but the sad part is these are the exact things the City is talking about in a major whisper campaign. Many believe not only Harding who is the filthiest, but the COA may be the next dirtiest. Buzz is the word that Nadalin was going to fire him may have set the whole scam in motion. We may never know but word is someone in the know is getting nervous.

    Anonymous #2 was commenting on Anonymous #1 but neglected to quote #1. If you were to read #2 you’d find that it clearly states that the Clerk is directed by the act to perform any duties imposed by Council.

    READ #2. The Clerk MUST implement orders from Council. The Clerk has NO authority to cancel an order from Council. ONLY Council can cancel the meeting and Council has NOT canceled the meeting. Technically the Clerk is in contempt of Council. Well, technically we are all in contempt of Council since Council is, for the most part, contemptible.

    As it stands now Council has lied to the public by not holding a meeting. This is an offence under the Code of Conduct. If Hunter really investigated the Info Energy business how did he manage to overlook a major breach of Integrity like this? He’s no better than the rest of Hardings stooges.

    Pure sleaze. History will not be kind to Paul Bryan whatever his name is, Harding, Lauder, Sobeski, Talbot, Gartshore and Hilderly. You can be sure of that.If and when the truth comes out regarding the election,an informed staff says there will be lawsuits from a wrongly defeated Mayor candidate suddenly gone silent and potentially criminal exposure to more than one person.Not to mention the truth regarding Info-Enron. They can run but they can’t hide…..I wonder how Hugo and Adam will feel flipping burgers after ignoring this dark time in Woodstock history????

    In the Know has summed it up. Where is Nadalin anyway??Surely he hasn’t given up on us. Him and Tait are the only hope we have. Me and my wife knew it, knew it, knew it.I like everyone knew Nadalin’s poor showing had to be a fraud leading back to City Hall but thought I was alone until people started talking..As well word is the O.P.P. were a breath away from an investigation but Nadalin said no. There wasn’t ANYONE I talked too that didn’t vote for him. This is serious shit people and it is all starting to come together.

    Has it occurred to any of you Nadalin supporters that maybe, just maybe, he’s as dirty as Harding in his own way?

    Why hasn’t he filed a statement of his election financing? Where did the $15,000 come from? I’d like to know. I’m damned sure his creditors would like to know. Some auditors for another candidate would like to know. Wouldn’t you like to know?

    Why would a seasoned councillor draft a motion with an escape clause in it? That motion was worded to guarantee that a meeting would never take place. That’s why it was passed by Council. They knew they had nothing to worry about.

    You think Nadalin’s a hero because he drafted the motion to have a meeting. I think he’s a con-man because he drafted a motion for a meeting that was never supposed to happen. He just wanted the voters to think he was a hero.

    That motion was just electioneering. It was designed to make the voters think council was going to come clean on Info-Energy. As soon as we re-elected them the whole sorry lot of them refused to hold the meeting. They didn’t even have the guts to rescind the original motion. They’re afraid to bring it back to the floor because somebody just might ask embarrassing questions. They’ve even duct taped Louise, not that that’s a bad thing. 🙂

    Anonymous 16 sounds like the usual bottom feeders that support Bozo the Mayor. Deviate from the real issue and crook and spew smack the other way.

    I know the situation and:

    Fact: Nadalin had business issues but give him credit for trying. He has and will consolidate his creditors even though he is not required to do so under business law.He has dignity.
    Fact: He was the first one to put in his expenses and since being notified he has his information with a very reputable local accounting firm to be delivered when he returns.
    Fact: If you believe for one minute that he is in bed with the likes of Harding think again. At County or City, he dooged this con-man and the meeting would have been held if he had stayed on Council. And don’t count him out yet.
    Fact: Anonymous 16 spews the same rhetoric Harding and Len Reeves fed to Mutt and Jeff in the media and ran with it on election Eve. Some silly encounter by buffoons to offset the e-mail printed on the front page off the Sentinel quoting the consultant who said he would damage the idiot incumbent if the meeting were held before the election.
    Fact: Harding supporters are in the minority which leads me to believe since this clown is so hated in Woodstock, he not only would have trouble finding an “Anonymous 16” but either wrote it himself or had his idiot sidekick Neslon write it.
    Fact: Nadalin wasn’t perfect and beleive me at times he pissed me and my wife off but he was the only one with backbone and one can only hope he returns from whereever he is to run for Mayor in the next election with no hi-jinx from staff or others.
    Fact: The majority of Woodstock knows he won the election. Try to find 5 people that voted for Harding. It is easy to find at least 3000 that voted for Nadalin.
    Fact: If it is Harding as “Anonymous 16” We say “Come clean you asshole. You owe it to the City to step down you dirty filthy bastard and leave this town. As has been stated. History will not be kind to you you prick.”

    Where is the evidence to support your so called “facts”? These are not facts, just your opinion and you are welcome to it. I am no harding supporter and no nadalin fan either. I know nadalin and what a snake he is, he speaks out of both sides of his mouth. He doesn’t take responsibilty for the things he does wrong & he takes credit for things that he doesn’t do such as cleaning up garbage at Pittock Lake. He showed up for the press and held a bag in his hand, but he didn’t collect any trash, he was probably afraid to stick around for for of being mistaken for trash himself.

    Hey screwball #16. Do your homework fuxstick. The only way Nadalin and Tait could get the motion passed was to have your so called escape clause put in by Gartshore/CAO and Harding. You really should have followed this guy’s career chump instead of swallowing for Harding. As well since the only other audited candidate would have been that sleazebag Hardings, what could a nickel and dime auditing firm Dewey,Cheetam and Howe he used possibly learn from a credible Accounting Firm other than how to be honest. You knuckle dragging idiots give me a blast. And FYI Nadalin is Afganistan under contract from the Canadian Army doing his part to assist the effort in Kandahar. Sorry to dissapoint you clowns who would listen to the likes of this so called Mayor and his followers how few they may be, Nadalin isn’t such an asshole afterall. One can only hope he kicks as when he gets back like he is used too. But then again Kandahar has to be better than this snake pit under such a sleazey prick.AGAIN.

    Dear 4:16am…

    Things you’ve got wrong so far:

    1. Post #16 said nothing about Nadalin. I think you mean #20 which is the first one critical of Nadalin.

    2. You seem to think #20 and #24 were written by the same person. They weren’t.

    3. I don’t know about #24 but #20 was not written by Mikey. It was written by me (aw). If you’ve been here before you know I’m no Harding fan. I’m also no Nadalin fan.

    4. It has been confirmed that Nadalin has NOT filed his expenses and has thereby contravened the municipal act and is disqualified from running for office in the next election. I have confirmed with other candidates that filing expenses at the municipal level is so simple that a 10 year old could do it without help from mommy & daddy so there is no credible reason for Naalin not to have filed.

    5. You’ve stated as “fact” that he is not in bed with the likes of Harding. HERE”S A FACT FOR YOU: “By agreeing not to release the consolidated financial statements, however councillors were also not provided with these documents, leaving them oblivious to the subsidiary’s true pecuniary situation. In fact, Nadalin, who endorsed this non-release, described Woodstock Info Energy Inc. that night as being “on the cusp of some pretty exciting times.” SR Aug 2006, from a then board secretary Ross McMillan in a Jan. 4, 2004, letter to the shareholder.

    As #24 has stated, you have no facts. You’re just repeating unverified nonsense that’s been fed to you by “your friend” Nadalin.

    The fact that Nadalin’s in Afghanistan proves nothing other than the fact that he’s not in Woodstock, or anywhere else where he might have to answer some tough and potentially incriminating questions.

    You do make one good point however. There is good reason to suspect election fraud. I saw some of the activities election night from the inside and there were obvious holes in the procedures. Our last election was about as legitimate as the one about to be held in Zimbabwe.

    You should be billing yourself as “VERY GOOD, GULLIBLE FRIEND OF NADALIN’S AND VERY PROUD TO BE A SUCKER” He’s lied to everybody else. What makes you think you’re special?

    ps:

    You’ve stated, “The only way Nadalin and Tait could get the motion passed was to have your so called escape clause put in by Gartshore/CAO and Harding.”

    So the only way he could get it passed was to agree to cripple it so there would never actually be a meeting? If that’s true you’re just confirming my argument.

    Question: Why would Nadalin agree to modify his motion and guarantee the meeting would be scuttled?

    Answer: Because the motion was all about Nadalin and not about a public meeting. This was just weeks before the vote. Nadalin wanted to distance himself from his own involvement with Info-Energy and reinvent himself as a friend of the people.

    Electioneering. Nothing more.

    Hey asshole you really don’t know your stuff and must be fed some pretty good garbage from staff or the Snake. Is that you Nelson, I don’t recognize the accent. If you think an audited statement can be done without all receivables think again. As well he did file a normal statement that is AVAILABLE TO YOU IDIOT at City Hall and is more in depth than all others. When told of the audited one the whells where put in motion at that time.You stupid coward who would not have the balls to confront Nadalin himself.Go swallow.

    Posted June 27, 2008 at 8:05 am | Permalink

    I’ll make this a last clarification because as is the case there is no convincing a card carrying cement head. Yeah you AW.Who organized a public meeting on his own for Woodingford Lodge and did so again for the Info Energy debacle only to put it off when Sobeski agreed finally to have Council oversee it. We all know now what a smoke screen the Integrity Commisioner turned out to be. I will guarentee you this. If no meeting is had by the time Nadalin comes home next year THERE WILL BE ONE SCHEDULED IDIOT.As far as the tough incriminating questions he was here fo a year after the election and subversives like you knew where to find him. He took care of half of his creditors in that time as well and will finish the job when he comes back. Better yet fire the questions here asshole and I will mail them to him for a response you can publish. So go crawl back under your rock he with no facts and a burn on for society and shut the hell up until you know the truth.As a side bar too following this crap he never ran to the paper about his presence at the Pittock Clean Up Jim Bender organized. He did show late after a family committment and the ONLY thing mentioned in the press was by Jim himself in an editorial letter that Jim chose to include. Again you clowns in the dark make me sick. Know the facts or shut up and quit tarnishing a good blog by a very educated blogger, that being Mr. Bender who I for one hope runs in the next election. PS: I hope AW isn’t Al Wilson but who knows, the coward won’t sign his name. But then again I wouldn’t sign mine to such unfounded garbage either.

  36. Nadalin's friend like all the others that rightfully elected him Mayor. We can only hope....

    I’ll make this a last clarification because as is the case there is no convincing a card carrying cement head. Yeah you AW.Who organized a public meeting on his own for Woodingford Lodge and did so again for the Info Energy debacle only to put it off when Sobeski agreed finally to have Council oversee it. We all know now what a smoke screen the Integrity Commisioner turned out to be. I will guarentee you this. If no meeting is had by the time Nadalin comes home next year THERE WILL BE ONE SCHEDULED IDIOT.As far as the tough incriminating questions he was here fo a year after the election and subversives like you knew where to find him. He took care of half of his creditors in that time as well and will finish the job when he comes back. Better yet fire the questions here asshole and I will mail them to him for a response you can publish. So go crawl back under your rock he with no facts and a burn on for society and shut the hell up until you know the truth.As a side bar too following this crap he never ran to the paper about his presence at the Pittock Clean Up Jim Bender organized. He did show late after a family committment and the ONLY thing mentioned in the press was by Jim himself in an editorial letter that Jim chose to include. Again you clowns in the dark make me sick.

    Dear Nadalin’s Friend….

    1. I’ll deal with the only item in your posts that remotely resembles a reasoned response to anything I said……

    “If you think an audited statement can be done without all receivables think again.”

    The campaign ended on election day. The filing date for financial statements was Apr 2, 2007. That’s well over a year ago and you actually expect me, or anyone else, to believe that Nadalin hasn’t got all the receivables??? That ranks right up there with “the dog ate my homework.” Just because you obviously believe it doesn’t mean the rest of us have to be that naive.

    2. The rest is howling and poo flinging. You’re pissed because you can’t defend the indefensible. Nadalin is a spent force. He lost and he ran away. Game over.

    3. “I hope AW isn’t Al Wilson but who knows, the coward won’t sign his name.” So does this mean your real name is, “Nadalin’s Friend?” What’s your middle name? I’ll bet the other kids made fun of your name at school.

    4. Please leave Al Wilson alone. He’s done nothing to deserve having his name bandied about on this blog. I am NOT Al Wilson. That would be like me accusing you of being Hugo, …or Nadalin. I’d never do that.

    aw

    ps: that wasn’t me that told the story about Nadalin at the Pittock clean up. I’m not the only one that’s got his number.

    I personally arranged the Pittock clean up as Jim’s partner & I can verify that Dave showed up late, took a bag and a pair of gloves from me, did an interview with the Sentinel in front of me, and then went home without collecting a single scrap. Although he did arrive late the event continued for about 3 hours after he left. I for one have been left with a sour opinion of the man.

    It’s beginning to look like his middle name might be “Only.” 🙂

    I tried;

    Hey Jim’s Pittock Partner. I want you now to get ahold of the Sentinel Review and ask them if ANY of their reporters spoke to Dave at Pittock Park. You KNOW the answer if you where really there idiot. Ask Jim Bender. Nadalin did clean up part of Roth Park with his daughter as well. Ask the little girl idiot. It is one thing to be ignorant of the facts but quite another to be a full fledged god damn LIAR. Crawl back under your rock with AW you lying asshole and quit spreading hose smack about one of the best politicians this City has seen. Read on in this blog to see how it is so quiet without Nad’s and the fraud artist Mayor has full reign over 5 out of 6 pylons. You stupid pricks!!!

    Yes sir. We certainly know where you stand. You’ve left no room for doubt.

    If I had friends like you I’d move to Afghanistan too.

    aw

    All this Nadalin bashing is entertaining but let’s not forget that Harding is the one we’re after. Nadalin is gone. Harding is still here.

    I won’t be happy until Harding is bunking with Nadalin in Afghanistan. If we can get PBP to go along as his valet all the better. After all, somebody has to carry Harding’s golf clubs. I’d recommend Louise but she’d collapse under the extra weight.

    This Nadalin’s Friend guy sounds a lot like Nadalin after a few Afghani beers. Can comments be tracked back to a source location somehow?

    Definition of crazy…..

    Someone who calls Jim Bender’s wife an “idiot” (twice), “a full fledged god damn LIAR”, a “lying asshole” and a “stupid prick.” then, IN THE MIDDLE OF SPEWING THIS FILTH, he asks Jim Bender to back up his argument! Now THAT’S crazy.

    When your choices for Mayor are Crooked or Crazy does it really matter how you voted?

    As far as the Pittock Cleanup went…
    personally I could care less if Dave did anything or not…
    I didn’t see him pick up anything anywhere, yes he did arrive with his little girl.
    He did say he had a prior committment to his family when he arrived.
    He was interviewed by a S-R reporter…(whoever it was that did the story the next monday)who also interviewed my partner Angela.
    Neither Nadalins comments nor the comments of my partner were entered into print news. This happens all the time…interviews but nothing printed.
    Im sure if the journalist kept her notes then you will see who she spoke with…and Dave would be there.
    The matter is not very important to me.It was important to remove the garbage from the lakeside thats all.
    My thoughts on Dave are deeper than that.
    Although he has been a fairly decent councillor, I was not impressed with his demeanor when I approached him and some fellow councillors on the issue of my son and the City allowing him into summer recreation programs.
    At the time Dave supported the city position(as presented by bob macfarland) that the city did not have to let my disabled son into the summer rec program that my taxes went to pay for. He even went so far as to tell me to “sue him'(or them)if i didn’t like it.
    So I did…in the OHRC(where there is no defence for anything)…and I knew I would beat them into the earth as a result of that virtue alone…despite the city pissing away their money to try and defend a non-defensible position.
    Dave didn’t even stand up for that handicapped child that just wanted to play….but then again, neither did any of the people who were on council, Talbot(wrote back and said there was nothing she could do),Sobeski(never even replied to my request for action),Harding(never replied either, go figure)Lauder(didn’t reply)Tait(replied, but said the CAO told her that they don’t have to let him in)and Dave…who told me to sue…(which is what I did) …they all just reiterated the position that the CAO put out to them that they didn’t have to let handicapped children in.
    yes, woodstock…a great place if you are rich, not disabled,and are prepared to pay through the nose for services that you aren’t allowed to use.
    That was the reason I ran for council…so no one else would have to be belittled, abused,or dicriminated against buy a bullying city council operated by a prickly CAO.(oh yes, don’t forget…bob Macfarland who was stupid enough to put everything in writing making the prosecution of the city for human rights abuses a very simple task.)
    Oh well…it’s not the first time Bob has cost a municpality a ton of money.Read about the RIM inquiry….Google Bobs’ name with RIM(a scandal of mass proportion from Waterloo)The guy has made some serious judgemental errors….Woodstock should be proud to have him here where he is effectively carrying out his duties in denying the most basic and fundemental human rights….to children.
    I’ve become totally accustomed to elected people in this city doing nothing for the people.
    There is nothing unusual about this. In fact, these people have allayed my fears that the status quo in politics was being lost.The status quo of do nothing unless its’ for yourself.

    jim
