LMRFD fire board meeting rescheduled to Wednesday 9/26/18

I heard that the board meeting was rescheduled to Wednesday because attorney Bill Whittington is attending.

The agenda is posted at the LMRFD forum.

Looks like another exciting board meeting.  

t. Discussion and possible action regarding: Certificate of Compliance and Oath of Office re: Ms. Koeppen. (Board)

I have NO idea what’s going on.  Theodora had been appointed, but not sworn in, then was told she didn’t qualify, then she WAS qualified at the last meeting, but not appointed because chief DeMaio could not swear her in because some form was missing?

Now we’re back to discussing this AGAIN?

And the last item:

z. Discussion and possible action: Possible appointment of new Board Chairman. (Kiffer)

Theodora should be appointed at the BEGINNING of the meeting so she can attend the executive session and vote on all issues.

Theodora has been attending the meetings for quite some time now and she is MUCH more qualified than candidates Joe Campbell and Phyllis Aitkens — neither one of them has any idea what’s going on.

In fact, Phyllis PRAISED the incompetent administrative assistant Karen Jackson on Facebook!

This election for THREE new board members is going to make or break LMRFD.

Sadly, only Ellen has posted her info at the forum:
https://forum.highdesertdirt.com/mohave/2018-lmrfd-fire-board-elections/

Charlotte, Eric, Ellen and Theodora are the ONLY board members / candidates to spend HUGE amounts of time on LMRFD meetings and more important, research.

Theodora Koeppen was mislead to believe that she was not eligible to run for office. 

So even if she’s finally appointed now, we will lose her again after the election.

This “mistake” by the board and/or attorney Whittington could put LMRFD into bankruptcy again.

Theodora is so extremely qualified with lots of board experience and the BRAINS to actually research issues. She took the TIME to attend the meetings and to TALK to so many people about the fire district (unlike Phyllis Aitkens and Joseph Campbell).

I feel that Theodora was railroaded by chief Tony DeMaio and chairwoman Deb Cass and possibly attorney Bill Whittington.

So I decided to wait until after the meeting to submit my formal complaint to the AG.

I had invited Phyllis via FB on 9/15/18:

Hello Phyllis, as you’re an LMRFD board candidate, we’ll greatly appreciate your letting us know why you’re running and what you can do for the district:

Christine
Phyllis is actively campaigning on Facebook, but don’t know whether she’s even seen my message.
I also have NOT heard or seen anything from Joe Campbell or Michael Karash.

I’m still working on a post with all the docs pertaining to the court hearing last Thursday regarding chief Tony DeMaio’s and administrative assistant Karen Jackson’s petitions for an injunction for harassment against me (denied).

So I plan to be at the meeting with my camera and I’ll continue to post the truth about LMRFD.

Last Saturday I spent hours reading and posting about NACFD (Valle Vista and several other consolidated districts).

The Kingman Miner writes about the NACFD troubles regularly:
https://forum.highdesertdirt.com/mohave/general-fire-and-emergency-news/

They’re going through this exact same crap!  Also were just recently in court.

I’m beginning to think that it must be a Republican thing to NOT collaborate.

Why are the fire district board members NOT talking to each other?

According to the Miner articles attorney Bill Whittington also ran up huge legal bills for NACFD.

And because the fire boards STUPIDLY put legal discussions into executive sessions, attorney Whittington can charge for the SAME advice over and over and over …

NACFD just started posting their meeting videos online in August and I will be pushing for LEGISLATION requiring all fire boards to publicly post meeting videos.

If you’re too stupid to record and upload a fire board meeting video you’re definitely NOT competent to spend tax payer money.

LMRFD administrative assistant Karen Jackson petitioned for injunction for harassment

Updated 9/9/18

This morning a process server woke me up. 

Karen Jackson decided to petition the Kingman justice court for an injunction for “harassment” because I posted that she is “the world’s most incompetent administrative assistant.” 

Last time I checked, I’m still entitled to publish my OPINION.

In fact, I consider this petition harassment. 

I’ve NEVER contacted Karen Jackson in my entire life.  And of course everything I posted is the truth. 

It’s impossible to prove whether she is or isn’t the “most” incompetent administrative assistant or not.   In my 44 years of interactions with many businesses worldwide, I’ve certainly never met any administrative assistant as incompetent as Karen Jackson.  Nobody even came close to her incompetence.

If ANYONE has a lead on a MORE incompetent administrative assistant I’d sure like to hear about it!  

Ms. Jackson can’t even prepare the minutes for the LMRFD fire district board meetings without omitting many issues discussed at the board meetings — after YEARS of working in that position!

8/27/18 LMRFD board meeting video and draft minutes

https://forum.highdesertdirt.com/mohave/2018-august/

The DRAFT minutes prepared by the incompetent / corrupt administrative assistant Karen Jackson do NOT reflect what REALLY happened.

Is Karen so stupid she thinks that it won’t be noticed that she omitted EXTREMELY important discussion such as director Kiffer asking chairwoman Cass to resign from chair?

Don’t you think the minutes should reflect that director Kiffer stated that chairwoman Cass ran up an $800 legal bill with LMRFD attorney Bill Whittington, consulting about SUING director Kiffer?

Three seats are up this election and of course I’ll provide info on the candidates ASAP.

If you are running please post your info at

https://forum.highdesertdirt.com/mohave/2018-lmrfd-fire-board-elections/

It’s extremely important to vote Deborah Cass OUT of office and to elect Ellen.

Sadly, director Mike Karash seems to be Deb’s mouth piece and he voted with Deb AGAINST giving Karen two weeks to FINALLY show up for work or quit.

The vote resulted in a tie, so maybe they can do better at the next meeting when Theodora Koeppen (Meadview) should FINALLY be on the board.

Administrative assistant Karen Jackson and chief Toni DeMaio must be replaced.

Karen is so incredible incompetent and I have frequently posted here about her bizarre relationship with the chief, who allows her to work from home.

We don’t know WHAT Karen does as the billing and just about all work have been outsourced.

Just like the chief, Karen doesn’t know how to use a computer, how to prepare a simple spreadsheet, how to upload a pdf to the website, etc.  To call her “administrative assistant” is a very cruel joke!

The website has been dysfunctional for years and the chief decided to pay Karen’s husband for webdesign.

At least twice.  He might as well have flushed the LMRFD money down the toilet.

http://lmrfd.org/ is a nightmare.  No minutes, agendas, budgets or ANY documentation.

The chief is also seriously lacking VISION.

He’s not a leader and he cannot imagine turning LMRFD into the thriving Community Paramedicine district is SHOULD be:

The truth about William’s arrest

The rumor mills in Meadview have been churning and much has been said about the arrest of Meadview post office employee William Schwartz last Wednesday.  Here is the Facebook discussion in Meadview Uncensored. Yesterday I got the documents.  Fish & Wildlife searched his house, initially looking for illegally harvested cacti, but finding 24.9 grams ofContinue Reading

My request for information about the County condemnation and demolition procedures to Tim Walsh

Supervisor Jean Bishop abandoned my neighbor, handed him over to Tim Walsh for more torture.  I got absolutely no response regarding the many issues addressed in my previous posts. NOTHING is resolved and we’re looking at ALL options, including legal. I started a new forum dedicated to stop the County’s condemnation of homes built preContinue Reading

Ellen’s complaint is on the Agenda for Monday’s meeting, but for the EXECUTIVE session.  WHY? e. Discussion regarding: Letter of Complaint re: Director Cass; ethics issues. (Board) Don’t the people who PAY for this MISMANAGED fire district have the RIGHT to know what’s going on? I cannot even remember the last time they had aContinue Reading

Mohave County condemned my neighbor’s old house

I could spit nails! The County posted an “abatement notice” at a neighbor’s property and earlier today I called Edward Kulik, chief building honcho (no title on the MC website). My neighbor is only out here occasionally because it’s too remote for his wife, but he enjoys the solitude. He built the house about 20Continue Reading
