County Administrator Bob Weisman and County Attorney Denise Neiman are pushing for the dismissal of our independent Inspector General, Sheryl Steckler. Weisman and Neiman craft their attacks on the OIG by targeting the Ms Steckler and, supposedly, not the IG “Office”. The true independence of Palm Beach County’s IG is the cornerstone of its existence. The first draft of the IG ordinance had the BCC hiring and firing the IG. The adopted ordinance, final version, established an IG committee to do the hiring/firing. The Good-Old-Boy system of government, i.e. Corruption County, needs to end. Does anyone need more evidence? How can “Mayor” Abrams’ speak for the entire BCC about not reprimanding Administrator Weisman for his “fire the IG” rhetoric. The County’s “Mayor” does not have the power to speak for the BCC. Steve Abrams is one of seven equals.
The PEOPLE of this County need to be heard. The only way that WE can get the Board of County Commissioner’s attention is by showing up IN MASS at their next meeting. The first meeting of the month at 2PM is set aside for public comments. MARK YOUR CALENDAR… TUESDAY, MAY 7TH AT 2:00 PM-TIME CERTAIN- MATTERS BY THE PUBLIC. This will be our opportunity to tell the BCC that this spurious attack on the person is, in reality, an attack on the OFFICE. I will be sending out talking points within a day or two.
PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT. It is everyone’s responsibility to get themselves to this meeting and to tell at least 3 other people and ask those 3 people to tell 3 other people and so on… We need to fill the BCC chambers with IG supporters. This is GRASS ROOTS activism.
The OIG and the COE are both under attack. We the People need to speak out.
Pay it Forward,

Anthony Man, in the Sun-Sentinel, examines the status of the tea party in Palm Beach and Broward in this article: Tea party attempting to remake itself which contains quotes from Michael Riordan, Karin Hoffman, Danita Kilcullen, Ira Sabin and others. The article also includes an amusing yet curiously unattractive video of Debbie Wasserman Schultz explaining that the tea party “has never been relevant” in South Florida.
The Palm Beach County Tea Party hosted their 2013 tax day rally – United Stand for America, at the Wellington Amphitheatre on Sunday, under a bright blue sky and seasonally warm temperature. South Florida 912 and Martin County Tea Party / 912, and Americans for Prosperity were co-sponsors of the event. Moderated by PBCTP President Mike Riordan, the afternoon’s lineup of speakers covered a variety of conservative themes.
In one of the shortest meetings of a county committee in recent years, the group recently named to consider the expansion of the Commission on Ethics to seven members and term limits for the commissioners finished its work in approximately 15 minutes. The drafting committee was formed after the County Commission voted 4-3 on a motion by Commissioner Taylor to consider the changes to “make the diversity on the Commission be representative of the county at large”.
I received this email. I will be honest I am just learning about common core and I watched Glenn Beck as he had a panel on this topic. I am looking to create a group of interested people to plug in and learn more about this topic please email me or call and we can set up a meeting to discuss and learn more and the implications, if any, here in Palm Beach county and throughout Florida.
I have spoken to a few teachers I know and it is HERE in Palm Beach County so lets get involved and take part in making a difference please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org You can find quick facts about Common Core from David Barton’s Wallbuilders Live website.
Here is the email that I received.
Did you know about “Common Core:
Call or write your Governor, state Representative and state Senator today!
Demand they stop implementing Common Core
Our local school boards ar having “workshops” to inform the citizens about common core, lots of people attending, awake and speaking up against. The school board members don’t know the facts.
