COLD DAY BLOG
8 degrees last night; that is cold. That however is not why I am late in blogging today. Instead it is a matter of not organizing material or even having anything of local interest for comment.
I had to leave Monday night’s Council meeting early in the Public Commentary session and not only missed the obligatory musical episode but also former Mayor Robinson-Briggs tirade as well as that of Roland Muhammad. Please see Bernice’s Plaintalker II blog.
I too have received the same “Sharon absolvers” comments that Bernice has. The fact is that Plainfield’s financial controls for her two terms in office were nonexistent. The Green block on the Council have continuously protected her and not only blocked any attempts to investigate any fiscal irregularities but even in the one attempt paid for her legal fees for her defense against the Council’s charges against her.
If this Council truly has Plainfield’s interest as a priority it would fund without question any and all Investigative (Forensic) Audit.
Since there may be a real probability of finding fraud in several areas the chances of that happening is as good as that of a snowball in hell.
