* Cape Vincent has a history of Staged plots to maintain Good ole Boys network
Marty Mickey & Donny say the pledge of allegiance
At the August 11, 2011.
Harold Wiley Spoke about what he called "immoral" voting. Harold also presented his infamous petition to the Town Board a petition designed to restrict seasonal voting with the intention of assisting the conflicted board members reelection.
Immediately after Harold presented his petition
Councilman Donny Mason said, “I am glad Harold Wiley spoke up with his resolution …ah petition, I saw the petition 4 or 5 days ago and I ah agree. I agree with it 100%, that there’s stuff going on, whether it’s illegal, not illegal who knows. The county says there’s a lot a grey areas umm so I drew up a resolution, this would stop voter fraud if there’s any happening.”
“ I can’t believe anybody would be against not taking care of voter fraud, if it’s happening. Everybody ought to be in favor of non-voter fraud.”
When Donny Mason introduced his resolution to the Town Board August 11, 2011, he said that he saw Harold Wiley’s petition and that because he agreed 100% drew up a resolution to stop voter fraud.
If you compare the Petition to the Resolution, the language is identical.
This is not the first time that our conflicted board members have participated in a seemingly staged plot to maintain their power base in the community .One such event took place at the January 13, 2011 prior to the start of this meeting, I observed a group of people huddled within the dark shadows of the parking lot. Among those in the huddle were private citizens and one Planning Board representative Thomas K. Reinbeck and one Town Board representative Donny Mason.
I laughingly thought they must have been discussing strategy…
After the meeting started most of the people that were huddled in a the parking lot conference stood tall as they proudly read from the same book, the same speech, the same page ~ waxing as eloquently as possible. Gary King, Bob Gauthier, Tom Reinbeck, Darrel Burton &Paul Mason all spoke quoting the law chapter and verse each and every one of these men accused Supervisor Urban Hirschey of being conflicted, because he had once belonged to a group that was for ethics in wind development,(WPEG) .
They accused Mr. Hirschey of being unethical for releasing the documents that were included in the Abraham affidavit for the WPEG article 78 lawsuit. In addition, not only did Tom Rienbeck accuse Hirschey of wrongdoing but he took a swipe at Michelle Bouchard in his accusations as well.
Because of the citizens that complained about Supervisor Hirschey Marty Mason decided to take action. Marty Mason said that he feels that in light of the information brought forward, that he wants a discussion and he wanted to hear from the other board members to look into this and see if possible laws have been broken. He wants the Attorney general to look into Supervisors conflict of interest. He wants the DA to look into this too.
Mickey Orvis agreed and added that he wanted a letter sent to the Jefferson County Board of ethics for their opinion on the conflict. Don Mason said he agreed and in his eyes, the Supervisor did something very bad. The papers were sent out and there should be an investigation. Brooks said that the subject matter has to do with discovery in a lawsuit and there is a certain amount of protocol going back if one party sues another about requesting information. He feels the Supervisor did nothing wrong.
Marty asked Attorney Gebo to proceed with the investigation and attorney Gebo said he would follow the lead of the board.
A motion was made by Marty to have Attorney Gebo contact the DA and the attorney General to look into possible conflict of interest by the Supervisor. Don Mason seconded with the request that Attorney Gebo contact Todd Mathis if he needs more information.
Supervisor Hirschey Abstain
Councilman Mickey Orvis YES
Councilman Brooks Bragdon NO
the motion was carried
This was presented to the Attorney General and The New York state attorney general did not even entertain the stupidity of the Mason’s frivolous action that was born out of a desperate attempt to prevent the oligarchy from losing their position of authority and control in our community.
In the past our sleepy little town was just that, we lived in an incongruous harmony a community divided and this was sustainable for a time, until the "powers that be" crossed the line and suddenly the “Outsiders” discovered what was happening right under their noses. How dare we object?
