The Case of the Missing Report, The report resurfaces!

This is starting to really get me wondering what in hell is going on. Guess what turned up on my fax machine last night at 11:12 PM? The missing/non-existant report, that is not supposed to be a report, but an "evaluation" and was supposed to probably be "a few PowerPoint slides"... well it isn't PowerPoint. It is a 4 page document with no NHMCCD or Gilbane logos on it so it will be difficult to prove where it came from, but there is something strange about the document. The cover letter has two fax machine headers on it from two different machines. The time stamps would indicate that they are some thirty one minutes apart, but only the cover page has two headers, pages two through 5 of the fax have only the later one. This would appear to imply that someone (Lampe?) faxed a cover page to someone else, who then faxed the cover letter along with the remaining pages of the report to me. There is a large amount of financial information here to support their claims. I will however be the first to say that I am unqualifed to analyse the information's validity or if there is something else that should be here that is not. I know there are people around here that are much better qualified to analyze it so I will leave that to you guys. I will say however that it could not have been developed without cooperation by someone at NHMCCD, and it was clearly written to justify a course of action by the board of trustees, so Laughter is clearly in violation of the law in claiming that no such report exists. I am currently in the process of pulling the caller ID report for that fax machine and hopefully by this afternoon I will know where the fax came from. It is entirely possible that it would NOT be financially viable to use the facility. I am unqualified to make that judgement, I CAN however say that the way in which this has been handled stinks to high heaven. If the NHMCCD Board will go to these lengths to obstruct the public's view of their stewardship of public funds, I have to seriously wonder what ELSE they have buried.

What's this about? Are you looking into something at NHMCCD?

Yep, Sure am. The situation as I see it in a nutshell Tom, is the board tried to run a board and bond election back in May with only 9 voting locations instead of the 90 or so that they had had previously. When the Justice Dept. smacked NHMCCD down, they reset the election for November. Well since then, a new candidate has tossed her hat in the ring, and it would appear that she is a crony of one of the current board members. That candidate is Charlotte Lampe, and the board member she is a crony of happens to be Roy Laughter. Her function in running for position 8 is to dilute the anti-incumbent vote between her and Fred Blanton. She is running as if she is a fiscal conservative outsider, but in a former life she helped get the board that voted for, and the bond election that paid for the Berry Edification Center out in Cy-Fair passed/elected. In reality she is a educrat insider RINO at best, and is basically a rubber stamp for higher bonds and taxes because "it's for the children!" after all.

Rorschach,

What can I do to help reduce the draw of this stalking horse candidate?

I am sending you my personal email address with a suggestion or two, though I think you've already got that email address.

Roll forward 1 month and now after the election is over and Lampe succeeded with her scheme... isn't it interesting how you were right on target?


Here's a comment on another Blog:

"Lampe ran an anti-HB1403 campaign, she hated on Blanton because he attended a few Democratic meetings, and she avoided black, Latino, and Muslim voters like the plague at early voting locations...... At the end of this, I come out of this with a lot of respect for the guy that was vilified by my hometown brand of toilet paper (the Observer newspaper), Fred Blanton. He talked to everybody, he ran a campaign on issues."
