“WEALTH BUILDER” Business Network International (BNI) of Maine does not get it. Lewiston / Auburn, Maine: LOCAL BUSINESSES TO BE HURT” ? And, more.

23 Sep

Attempted, to address; “Business Network International”  (BNI) on Merger or Consolidation of Lewiston, Maine with Auburn, Maine and they refused to listen.    2nd, rate Organization. Their, logo is “Build Relationships to help grow your business.  And, they refused to listen.

 

If, you think that the restriction on a “One L/A city” bidding purchasing will aid your business than “Vote” for it.

It, would seem to me; that, one Consolidated city bidding process would reduce some opportunity of the local business communities of Maine; Androscoggin County and the Greater Lewiston and Auburn METRO Chamber businesses as there would only be one city to do a bidding business with.

Thus, eliminating several Businesses from the equation of bidding or winning a city bid.

Will, you go out of business first ?

BLAST FROM THE FUTURE: FUTURE, SHOCK ON MERGER and CAN I HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR.

22 Sep

If, on passage of the alleged merger on a vote to beheld “7 November 22017” in both cities of the Auburn, Maine and Lewiston, Maine the following will occur as for my crystal ball tells me so.

1.  The Bates Mill Number 5 will become a structure housing the combined police of  the once cities and it shall be than known as the “Bunker”.  The structure will and  is large enough to facilitate the housing of all police vehicles.  The Bunker will have  three (3) entrances one opening to Maine Street with one opening to Lincoln Street  and one opening to allow Patrol Torpedo Boats (PT boat) to catch the speeding  “Gondolas” on the Canal.

2.  The Auburn, Maine Library will be put up for sale to be used as a “Disco Night Lounge” ,  “Dinning Room Facility” with accompanying “Bed and Breakfast”.

3.   The city hall in Lewiston, Maine will be prepared from sale with written instrument to be prepared by the Lewiston, Maine City Administrator with issuance of a written instrument declaring that the building can and only  purposed usage shall be as a “Mosque” as the structure has a number of  minarets that accomplishes the usage as a ‘Mosque”.

4.   As . . .  for the Lewiston School Superintendents building in Lewiston, Maine.   I  would recommend that it be burnt to the ground.  As, to not allow  the contamination of over spending to spread throughout the new city.

5.  Central Fire Stations,of both cities shall be handled as follows.  The one with the “Longest Poll” shall  be turned into a “Gentleman’s Club and be designated upon sale.

6.  After, 3 year’s upon completion (Completion, date 2019) of the New preK through K8 school being built at the Lewiston, Maine High School Complex the New Mr. Robert V. Connors School will revert into a new high school for Edward Little High School Student’s.

     This, action will be taken as the school student “Bubble Breaks” and will have served it function as for over crowding of grades preK ( Pre-K kinda garden should the school system be going there) through K8 will no longer require a school it’s size.  Thus, allow room for the school to be used as a High School and any preK  >  K8 student to be transferred to Farwell School or other schools.

All please laugh together; as, I want to hear you.

Update: LEWISTON, MAINE’S “HIV, Hep B, C” EPIDEMIC (https://AIDSVu.org/state/maine/) these statics are from 2014 and are sorrowfully lagging.

3 Aug

Do, to the past and on going lack of policing in the 24 hour cycle in the “RED ZONE”; as police state that this is being handled by the Western Maine Task Force of the Drug Enforcement Agency and have been asked to ease from enforcement of Federal and States laws regarding drug running position and implements (needles, glass stems and other items associated with drugs.) Thus, “HIV” epidemic is an ever growing problem in the Lewiston , Maine area.

As, ladies of the night are allow to gather and perform their duty wright in front of the police officers.

How, ever it may be that some older officer are not getting involved do to; same old; same old. While, younger officer are not as aware as to who the prostitutes are like the older more officers and have not been schooled to the facts to known.

White the highly acclaimed Community Base Policing headed by one highly acclaimed Officer Joseph Philippon of the Lewiston, Maine Police Department. One, would suspect that byknow they would know all participating “Ladie of the Night and where they are Getting their durgs.

It, lead me to thing that the Lewiston, Maine Police Department is involved in the Drug Trade.

Remember, there has been a vast number of gun firing at persons and building in Loosestown, Maine in just the last 3 months.

NOTE:

In another issue, the Lewiston, Maine Police; “NO” longer have to report “Child Endangerment” to the Official State of Maine Agency handling on any contact with children being in danger. As, stated in my interview at the Lewiston, Maine Police Department.

Meeting, 2 B held on the issues at Lewiston, Maine City Hall; 7 PM, 15 August 2017. All, angencies involved are welcome to attend and give comment.

*BUILDINGS and DWELLINGS:

1. Over 179 building, 600 dwelling and apartment units (Now, a property taxable loss to the city; that, business and residents must make up in the city budget.) have been demolished either by City (Mostly) or private land owners in the Past 32 years. This does not include the transfer of the Bates Mill Complex with $27 million dollars, 3 parking garages, and cost of refurbishing of 300 parking space and on going heating of the mill by the City of Lewiston, Maine.

55% of all housing units as of 2013 are structures containing two or more units and as of 2013 there were 70 condemned residential structures in the City.

As, of 2013 the breakdown of housing types are as follow:

43.3% Single-family Detached homes.
1.6% Attached Homes.
41.1% 2 to 9 unites.
10.3 10 or more units.
3.7% Mobile Homes.

These figure maybe off by up to 2 percent as of 2016.

*SCHOOLS AND STUDENTS: (Was talking to Code enforcement and he stated to me that it was a good thing building and apartments holding units were being torn down as it would lead to not having to build more schools.)

Student, totals are projected to be as of 2017 5,752 with an increase until year 2021 this in part due to reproductive habits of some newer immigrants and welfare. Plus, non sexual education of new immigrants and religious belief as contraceptives were to we Christians as dictated by the Holy Sea.

This increase in the last few years has created a significant increase in the tax rate for elderly property owner’s through the expansion of schools and the construction of a new K1 to K8 which will be over budget by my speculations. This do to unforeseen property procurement and demolition costs.

It is my speculation that 47 new classrooms are need in the next 10 years. This with associated teachers and support staff.

It would be wise to think that; if, it were not for the demolition of multi-unit building Lewiston, Maine would be in server municipal financial trouble and maybe at that in the future.

*LEWISTON, MAINE ROADS/Water Distribution Lines/SIDEWALKS/Parking Garages/BRIDGES/Landfill:

188 mile of roads.
146 miles of H2O distribution Lines.
86 miles of sidewalks.
5 Parking structures.
8 Bridges.
1 Landfill which I anticipate will need to be replaced in a little more than 10 years.

*SOULE4MAYR2017: NEW PRIORITIZE ECONOMIC VITALITY PLAN:FOR THE FUTURE.

1. Invest Wisely.
2. Emphasize the Heart of Lewiston.
3. Rethink Lewiston’s Suburban Gateways.
4. Capture a Greater hare of Major Retailers and Employers.
5. Make Lewiston a Hub for Artisan Industry.
6. Build Lewiston’s Creative Economy. (Translates to; Range of economic professions in active Lewiston.)
7. Partner, with Educational Institutions and Local Manufactures to Build a Skilled Labor Force.
8. Strive to become Self-Sufficient. This to me mean doing business with local town businesses peoples when meaningful value can be achieved.
9. Reforming the Cities General Assistance Policy. This to me means adding an individual to corporate full employment by the City of Lewiston’s paying the Employer for a period of time to educate the individual General Assistance person to learn the Job Requirements.

* STRONG SMALL BUSINESS AGENDA:

A. Support Local Partnerships / Incubators.

B. Start an Annual Partnership / Incubator Conference.

C. Open a Co-Working Office.

D. Promote, Grassroots Initiatives through the Federal Community Development Block Grant Funding.

*SOULE4MAYOR2017 POLICIES & PROGRAMS:

Initiate, a Downtown Development Revolving Fund or Infrastructure Bank or Union with credit unions / Banks.

Create, a Business Improvement District.

Set up a Tax Increment Financing District for the Downtown area.

Pursue Revitalization Loans or Grants from around the world.

Expand or create, search for a new Lewiston Economic Growth Plan with input from local businesses, out of state and overseas nations.

* * ALL, THIS WHILE INSTRUCTING: Lewiston’s Municipal government not to exceed Lewiston 12018 budget expenditures this goes to pay raises and Teacher-yearly-Step-Raises of 3% for each year they are with the School System. This 3% percent is on top of last years 3% increase and 3% on each salary they go a year earlier plus medical and extras.

Maine Financial System, is an up side down Egyptian Pyramid; getting ready to collapse on it’s self. Remember, Maine population is decreasing and the people living here will sooner or later be taxed to rebellion or drastic cuts will have to be made to social services (roads, bridges, water items.) The average age of a Mainer is 43 years of age . . . . . and increasing.

But than again,all U need to B happy; is-a-safe-place-to-sleep, meal-a-day and your- health. Fore, all else is an extra.

NEWS FLASH: Lewiston and Auburn, Maine Consolidate Charter Commission Chairman suggested a postponement November 2017 Vote on CONNECTS-IT / Consolidation may be at hand. States, “Charter Commission” still has work to be done. Click, on anything red.

27 Apr

It is my speculation; that, the Charter Commission on consolidating Auburn and Lewiston, Maine headed by Gene Geiger, Chip Morrison will attempt to postpone the 7 November 2017 “CONNECTS-IT Vote”  in an attempt to have a special “Election Vote” .

This being as an attempt to get a lower turnout to the polls.  As, the Mayoral “Election” scheduled for 7 November 2017 will have a greater voter turnout than a “Special Election” with one item issue.

Due to demand: LEWISTON – AUBURN MAINE: THIS WEEK .

28 Nov

The Joint Lewiston and Auburn, Maine City Council workshop this week is a con job on the respectable residents of the Lewiston and Auburn, Maine area.  In that; it, allows no input from the public and displaces a regular meeting for the cities.

The following would have been my orientations to the Joint Lewiston and Auburn, Maine City Councils.

1.  That the date for the Consolidation “Vote” on whether both Lewiston and Auburn, Maine should consolidate be set !   This question has had ample time to development to fruition; and, should be directed by the Auburn and Lewiston City Councils to a conclusion date and put out to vote to the public of both towns by the next Lewiston, Maine Mayoral Vote which is November 2017.

2.  That, the Joint Auburn – Lewiston Councils orchestrate a resolve to generate a letter to the Governor of Maine; as, to the fact that both cities will be enforcing ” FEDERAL LAW ” over Maine Law as to the promulgation of any drugs.

3.  That, the Laws allowing college student from out of State; that, allows them to vote with just a college identification in Maine election be reviewed.

4.  And, that the State of Maine should issue a United States Supreme Court Constitutional challenge to the passage of the Special Education Interest Tax; under, current recount in the  State of Maine; as, to rather it constitutes a form of class Economic Class singling out.

5. Appointment of new Lewiston Maine Police Chief from outside of the Lewiston Maine Police Department and preferably a women.  Women are less likely to play the “Old Boy Game. ”  Go to:  www.soule2017mayor.wordpress.com and press on category ” Police”.
