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

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

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. 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:

Ellen Reh-Bower’s complaint calling for the resignation of LMRFD chairwoman Debora Cass

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 a board meeting without an executive session and this INSANITY MUST STOP!

HOW are the TAX PAYERS able to vote for the candidates who do their jobs properly when we don’t even know how they discussed this complaint?

The complaint about Cass and the supporting documents are posted at the LMRFD forum:

7/23/18 LMRFD board meeting notes by Ellen Reh-Bower

7/26/18 — by Ellen Reh-Bower Thought I would just hit the high spots from the LMRFD Board meeting Monday, July 23, for those interested. The agenda promised an interesting meeting. A few tidbits came through. Approval of minutes from prior meetings, 4/30/18 – 6/25/18 was finally accomplished after months of Board members requesting corrections. TheContinue Reading

7/23/18 next LMRFD board meeting

The next meeting is 7/23/18 at the Dolan Springs Chamber of Commerce, presumably at 1:30 pm, but the time is omitted in the minutes. Chief DeMaio and chairwoman Cass entirely IGNORED my 6/10/18 request for various items to be added to the agenda. They didn’t even acknowledge my email. So I just wrote: Dear ChiefContinue Reading

Next Monday 6/25/18 LMRFD meeting at the Meadview MCA

My open letter to LMRFD regarding the ongoing disarray

It’s been TWO years since the new LMRFD (Meadview and Dolan Springs) fire district board took office. The good news is that LMRFD is not insolvent again. The bad news is the lack of transparency, constant state of confusion and strange things going on with the administrative assistant Karen and her complete and utter incompetence. Continue Reading

LMRFD fire board meeting next TUESDAY in Dolan Springs

Tuesday 5/29/18 1:30 pm at the Dolan Springs chamber. Lots of stuff going on: Discussion and action regarding: Acceptance of Resignation for LMRFD Board Member Rick Sherwood; effective June 18, 2018. (Cass) Rick is resigning?  Why? I was glad he asked some meaningful questions about the ambulance billing at the last meeting. I don’t knowContinue Reading

Why is LMRFD NOT charging for ambulance runs unless patients are transported?

This is the strangest thing. LMRFD does NOT charge when the EMTs don’t transport the patient. Is that crazy or what? A friend called 911 because he was in terrible pain, but it got better while the EMT assisted him and calmed him down. He had nothing but praises for the EMT. The EMT didn’tContinue Reading
