This email exchange is priceless!
In case you don’t quite get the significance of the email, here are the facts.
Because of the long-standing problems with former OPOC Chair and still OPOC member Deb Conklin, which has finally resulted in a Human Resources Complaint against Conklin by OPO Bart Logue Councilmember Mike Fagan was going to bring forward a resolution at the last City Council Meeting for the removal of Deb Conklin entirely from the OPOC, a move that should have been made months ago but wasn’t, and the only explanation folks close to the situation can come up with is “The Big Stall” has been a political strategy employed by the like politically minded Kinnear and Beggs to push the Conklin removal past the Breean Beggs v Andy Dunau City Council Position race November 7th, as Conklin’s constituency at the Center for Justice, Peace and Justice Action League, etcetera is the same as theirs and Beggs will need those votes.
The effort to continue to try and push it past the election appears evident is the above email exchange, when she states:
“Sorry for the delay. Home sick today. Mike P. drafted a resolution. We have candidate that Breean still needs to confirm that she is interested. He needs a few more days to finalize. Hope to be in tomorrow and we can talk in person.”
Mike P, who is City Attorney Mike Piccolo, according to Kinnear has the resolution all drafted so what does “We have candidate that Breean still needs to confirm that she is interested. He needs a few more days to finalize”?
To me it means that if Kinnear and Beggs can convince the rest of the CC they have a spiffy candidate in mind and appointing this spiffy candidate will eliminate the need to dumb Conklin, of course any fool knows that that application, interview, background check process would be impossible to complete prior to the election.
Ain’t Politics fun?
