Integrity Wins!

Let’s hear it for integrity – it’s seems to be contagious – Not! I thought I’d share the aftermath of the power of the e-mailing.

I wasn’t the only person who questioned the behavior of a certain board member and his decision making process. This is good because it doesn’t make me look like some crazy person. Some other folks would tell you different.

This is what happened:

The meeting with the block watch captains happened.

The person facilitating the meeting stated that the “Political Action Committee” would be in after this meeting officially ended. Imagine that, should have been set up like this from the beginning. Give people choice if they wish to leave.

The Board is no more, at this meeting it was officially dis-banded and some restructuring will be taking place. I applauded this decision because it should have happened over a year ago. Now things can get done.

Myself and the other board member have been called names on the local message boards. Wow, stand up and not roll with the flow, you get labeled a mental health nut-case. No, I didn’t feed into it because the folks who are doing it look like fools.

Myself and the other board member pissed a whole lot of folks off. Oh well – Like I said, this homey don’t play that !

The best part was that the political action committee did a no show. How funny is that?

Power to the little people.


It’s All About Integrity

Grab your favorite beverage and join me.

After a glass of wine and the re-attaching of my head to my shoulders a question kept coming up over and over – “Do I have a valid reason to be angry”?

In the last 72 hours my patience has been pushed to the limits and my integrity tested. Integrity won because I resigned – This homey don’t play that!

You see I have had this non paid position on this board that deals with block watches. If you live in an urban area you might belong to one. Block watches are a good thing.

The city-wide board that I sit sat on, with its non paid positions meets 4 times a year, every quarter to touch base with the Captains of the the block watches. This is to makes sure that every is going okay, address any problems, plan any events for the future, things of that nature.

We have one rule no political stuff of any sort. No campaigning of any sort – by anyone – for any thing.

I knew we had a meeting coming up this week, no problem, I was eager to get down to business to do some problem solving because my dying/dysfunctional city is going to be laying off many folks and it would be a good idea to deal with the aftermath of how we will be effected.

Husband: “You need to come and read this”.
Me: “read what”? – local message board.
Husband: “Did you know about this”?
Me: “NO” – hand starting to shake, head ready to explode.
My head is popping off.
