EMERGENCY City Council Meetings 1/29/2015 5:30 PM – Public Shut Up!


    DSCF4779At the request of Barbara Thomas East Cleveland City Council President there will be a series of special meetings where the public will NOT be allowed to speak until the last two meetings.  Meeting three is only setting up next weeks regular council meeting.  The first two emergency meetings will spend the public’s money without allowing public comments meeting one before or after the vote is taken.

   Council members like Brandon King and Thomas Wheeler after aDSCF4740 year in office have never had a community meeting.  For some finding Wheeler is a task to say the least and when things happen in his ward three area he, Wheeler is never on the spot.  Brandon King has had less than five committee meetings and he has never met with the public but makes every meeting of the Neighborhood Advisory Board to bid on more land in his attempt to buy up property.

     Once upon a time Barbara Thomas held meeting with her ward two residents on a regular basis but since the last fiasco featuring news media summer 2014 she has not had any community meetings with her constituents.   Perhaps Ms. Thomas will take some time out of her busy schedule to set-up a meeting to discuss why she is not talking about the blinking traffic lights at Euclid Ave, Forest Park Blvd and Wheeler Avenues.   In the past Thomas boasted that she had the distinction of having “Downtown East Cleveland” in her ward but she has not been seen nor has she said a single word about that area.

     DSCF5117Where is Mansell Baker and why are Ward Four resident holding meetings about Helen S. Brown Senior Center without his input?   No meetings in Ward Four for several months but when disaster strikes such as what is going on at the Express Gas where gallons of gasoline goes into the East Cleveland Sewers Baker is on the scene when Mayor Norton and his sidekick Michael Smedley are no where to be found.  When a car crash occurred at Ca$h Corner #2 (Wendy’s) baker was on the accident scene observing lack of equipment and broken down ambulances reporting to help

     Finally Nathaniel Martin has manged to cover Ca$h Corners talking with media and residentsDSCF4739 about the intersection on the news.  His monthly meeting  is the only time residents and speak out or ask questions.  Mr. Martin is the only city council person willing to file criminal charges against Mayor Gary Norton Jr. while the other people just vote yes or don’t show up for meetings like Norton wants them to do.

 

    With Mayor Gary Norton playing like a baby walking on residents questions and comments as well as running from the media that he used to love in the past East Cleveland shows it’s royal back side to it’s loyal residency.

   Here is the line-up for today’s meetings at East Cleveland City Hall where residents are warned to “shut up” keep their mouths shut until the end of meeting three.  There will be no time when residents can say a word during the first meeting.  If you attend series of meetings bring some duct tape for your mouth and watch but talk until the last 2 meetings on the list.  The third meeting is about next weeks regular council meeting with no voting just procedural issues.

*Brandon “LAND” King has paid up all of his property taxes and has no unpaid taxes

This property deal has been on the media, and our email box has been swamped with people asking about this property but not one person has made an offer.  Now everyone can stop sending us emails about Brandon “LAND” King and his property deals.DSCF4702

   Now Brandon King, KMG 13308 Euclid LTD are FREE to  buy up as much property as they want in East Cleveland Ohio.  Since no one else is buying property the City of East Cleveland is giving away as low as $100 there is reason why a smart entrepreneur like Mr. King should be stopped.

    Everyone has the same chance Brandon “LAND” King has to prosper from “flipping” houses in East Cleveland and now let the game of real estate deals begin.
