I was recently (October 15) discussing, again, West Vincent's
legal bills. You may remember I demonstrated a total of
$80,496.15 up to October 15.
I viewed the most recent West Vincent meeting video http://www.westvincenttwp.org/images/all-videos/BOS%20Video%20102212.wmv
and actually heard Jim Wendelgass state that my current legal
figure calculations are wrong, and instead are around $72,000.
Doubting myself, I reconfirmed the numbers for the
NON-REIMBURSABLE legal fees and they are absolutely correct. I
implore the readers to simply go to the minutes for the dates I
listed and look at the Bills List.
When an audience member stated that West Vincent was then still
$2000 over the Legal Budget, Wendelgass stated that wasn't true,
either. The 2012 budget is on the Township website. The Legal
Budget is clearly $70,000. Please read it. I linked to all of
these documents in the prior e-mail. Here is the budget http://www.westvincenttwp.org/images/docs/2012-Approved-Budget-Revised.pdf
see the top of page 13. Does Jim Wendelgass, the West Vincent
Township Manager truly believe his lies? These are HIS created
documents, posted on the West Vincent Township website. I cannot
alter their website. Jim Wendelgass' salary and benefits total
over $130,000 per year (see the top of page 3 in the above
link), and another 3% raise is on the way, starting January of
2013. Your tax money funds this type of dishonesty and the
Supervisors either support it or have no idea of the finances in
West Vincent township. Which is it?
The relevant excerpt of the video is here, it is only 30
seconds long. This excerpt starts at around 59 mins 30 secs
into the whole video referenced above.
While talking legal bills, on the www.electdavidbrown.org
website (last year) it stated "Kit and David spent hours this
summer looking over all the legal bills from 2010 and year to
date 2011. We have some ideas how things could be done
differently that should result in moderate cuts in the legal
expenses. We plan to begin executing those ideas as soon as we
take office. We will be looking deeper while in office at ways
to continue to reduce those expenses........." However, he
later denied he said that. (He has later closed the website down
after he was caught contradicting his campaign
statements on issues AFTER he was Supervisor.)
The site has now been taken down but I managed to find a
screenshot, below. And if you go to this video link http://westvincenttwp.org/images/all-videos/BOS-Video-052912.wmv
and look at what was said between the 20:25 and 22:30 you'll
find his denial. I'm sorry I can't send you to the minutes to
read this, since, again, the minutes do not accurately reflect
what was actually said.
What we have is a pattern of deception by the Supervisors and
the newest one, David Brown is no different.
