Not just incompetent, but criminal?

http://www.times-standard.com/localnews/ci_25954289/dying-councilmans-inquiry-raises-questions-at-eureka-city?source=most_viewed

via Times Standard:

Madsen states in the affidavit that he repeatedly questioned Day-Wilson about where she got the memo until she named Councilwoman Melinda Ciarabellini.

Madsen writes in the affidavit that he later met with Ciarabellini, and that the councilwoman told him that she didn’t know how the memo had been distributed among city staff. Madsen states Ciarabellini said she had given a copy to Day-Wilson over concern that the memo might spark litigation by those named in the document.

When contacted by the Times-Standard, Ciarabellini declined to comment.

Madsen’s affidavit also recounts his conversation with then-Community Development Director Rob Wall about the email, which is also referred to as a “hit list.” Madsen’s affidavit states that Wall told the councilman that Day-Wilson provided both him and Personnel Director Gary Bird a copy of the memo at a meeting, and that Wall was later approached by Day-Wilson and asked to say he read the document after seeing a copy on her desk while waiting for her. Wall refused to comply, the affidavit said.

The declaration and an accompanying six-page investigative report, both of which Madsen apparently made a top priority during the last months of his battle with lung disease, were delivered by certified mail to the city on June 5 by Daniel Cooper, Madsen’s probate attorney. Together, the documents shed new light on an apparently toxic environment in city hall and a rift on the city council. And they raise serious questions about Day-Wilson’s honesty, ethics and job performance.

“Mr. Madsen requested that I provide this information to the city council after his death so that its present members would follow through on the investigation his declining health prevented him from completing,” reads a cover letter to the city from Cooper. “Mr. Madsen’s request also directed that I allow his family ‘private time’ to grieve and adjust to his passing before this affidavit was delivered to the city council.”
Madsen, who resigned his post with the council in December due to his prolonged battle with lung disease, was in hospice care when he signed the affidavit on March 6. He died April 5.

PARC NEEDS HELP

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on May 5, 2014 by highboldtage

HELP…

“We all need somebody to lean on”

No matter how “together” one is, most people of this earth actually need help. Whether that be spiritual uplifting, emotional encouragement, physical assistance, or (to put it plainly) money. PARC (Peoples’ Action for Rights and Community) truly needs financial help.

It is actually very honoring and humbling that I am able to write this email asking all kinds of kind people for money donations to keep PARC’s door open. I wish I was able to donate cash for rent and bills. I do feel good while washing dishes after people have had nourishment, sweeping or mopping the floor after thankful people have come in and out from the sunshine or the rain, setting up tents for the night, giving out blankets and warm clothing, or cheering someone with singing or conversation. The PARC space also allows us to make literature and set up weekly informational displays about ending long term solitary confinement. It’s a big deal that we receive the financial help we need.

Giving of one’s time and energy helps people who come to PARC, and it  contributes to the community organizing that goes on here.  Sadly, money is the only thing to ensure that this welcoming, safe, blessing of a place can actually stay open.

So, to the gritty details.

PARC desperately needs funds for:

2 separate Phone Bills:  Each phone line services two purposes, including a jail support hotline and, recently to support people facing ICE harassment in Humboldt

PARC rent: $750 to the kindest “landlord” ever; for a space that is open almost every day of the year and almost every minute between 9:30am and 9:30pm

Electricity and Gas Bills:  at this point, payments are overdue!

Additional need this month:  A few of us from PARC have been helping someone who has no shelter and who has recently been very hurt and traumatized.  We’ve been paying for campground stays and other expenses (i.e. gasoline) and working toward setting up a more long-term and stable situation.  Although the campgrounds are cheap, we are BROKE.  Please help.

Thank you!  Thank you to everyone who gives money, spends time laundering towels and clothes, donates food, gives their smiles and encouragement, and fills PARC with life and the spirit of resistance.

Signed,
a friend of PARC
