AUSTERITY: “Lewiston, Maine’s School Budget to rise by $10 Million Dollars !” 2019 City Fiscal Year Budget will be “OUTDATED” before it hit’s the Street of Lewiston, Maine and reshuffled on completion like last year’s.

12 Feb

Lewiston, Maine School Committee to consider State of Maine Policies to improving it’s financial standing over rest of State of Maine’s.   As, Lewiston, Maine will have to file for Bankruptcy like Detroit, Michigan and is squirming for any opportunity to avoid at other’s expense.

On, Agenda this week, to consider is a proposal L. D. 1492.  An, Act to attract, Educate and retain “New Mainer’s”  to (Get this.) to strengthen the workforce ?

At, who’s expense and for who’s benefit ?

With, the increases to this year’s heating cost of our homes due to colder weather and anticipated increases to our electric bill due to transmission grid line damage I would side with frugality and caution.

We, must consider that next year; shall not be any different as to weather of this year winter.

Than, there is the anticipated increase of gasoline prices and an anticipated increase in the State of Maine  gasoline sales tax to cover State short falls in the State of Maine 2019 Fiscal Year Budget to be considered.

With, planned cuts in United States Federal programs that provide or eliminate programs that provide heating oil , legal aid to indigent citizens,  grants to cities and towns, and monies to Community Development Block Grants cities and town based programs to rehabilitate housing, infrastructure and create or  aid other services.

How, much more can the Taxpayer of Maine take before the “Back of the Camel is Broken” ?

Remember, the the average age of a resident of the State of Maine is 43.  And, at that age one has college tuition to pay for young adults in College.

Recommend, that this L.  D. 1492 be rejected by the “Hard Working People of Maine”.

Note:

Can not wait to see that “Bond Issues” they want you to accept.

Lewiston, Maine want’s to Construct a “Performing Art’s Center” at the Lewiston High School ?  Is, this really needed; or, Non Frugal Nonsense !    Forum / Meeting, at Longley School, Birch Street (near Colisee’)  at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, 13 February 2018.

Up-date: Lewiston and Auburn, Maine “DO NOT; READ, THIS.”

8 Dec

Thanks for the live stream internet.

Question one:  Name politician that influenced you the most.

Mr. Chin answer was; President Theodore Roosevelt.

Mine was Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Mr. Bouchard answer was Governor LePage.

Opening, statement highlights:

Mr. Chin answer was; “You, either we believe we can complete this process of restoring our city; or, not.

Mr. Chin, largest talking point was the opioid problem.  Stating that this issue is created by a larger societal problems.  That being the lack of human  life sustainable jobs that provide a degree of Medical care.

In, the area of Policing Mr. Chin stated that he had met with the Police Union and discussed the “Belonging Issue Agenda”.  The “Us” verses “Them” of the lesser society.

He, also mentioned Code enforcement and that we can come to some areas of agreement on the secure home issue.

Tax rate to Mister Chin proposed the use of a state education subsidy earmarked for property tax reduction towards a tax rebate for seniors.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

Mr. Bouchard also repeated himself as to a Civic Arena or concert venue in the are of Exit 80 off Interstate 95.  But, did not discuss the financing of the facility.

Mr. Bouchard attempted to divert the attention of the Audience by starting a duel on method  of Campaigning.

Mr .Bouchard stated that the use of State money that was to applied to education is illegal.

Mr. Bouchard, stated that Lewiston, Maine image has “has held us back for a very long time>  But, that it need to leverage assets like affordable rental spaces in the former mills.

Mr. Bouchard, also stated that  he “supports all the actions of the Lewiston, Maine Police Department”.

And, that all federal grand monies funding should be getting to area nonprofit groups.

Closing:

Mr. Bouchard stated that “anyone who wants to work and be a productive member of society is welcome to come to Lewiston, Maine.

Mr. Chin, setting a vision matters.  And, added that thousands of people vote for Mayor and that is the only office that is voted on by the entire city of Lewiston.

Mr. Bouchard, said while they disagree on most everything that both candidates have bold new proposals that would challenge the new city council.

Mr. Chin, said; “That his revitalization programs are what’s going to be the fundamental things that change peoples feelings and attitude towards Lewiston, Maine when they drive or walk through the City of Lewiton, Maine.”

Side bar:

I will tell you that I have already voted for Mr. Chin.  And, that a generational shift has occurred and the passing of the “torch” has been pass to a new generation in the City of Lewiston, Maine.

And, then there is the Issue of Mr. Bouchard allowing the hiding of Quick Claim Deeds against individual through the “Consent Agenda” on the Elderly.   While allowing businesses to be in default on loans to city and behind in taxes.

Secondly, is the Issue of Mr. Bouchard concealing “Bond Issue” through the “Consent Agenda”.

**  Definition of Consent Agenda,  an Item placed on a consent agenda is allowed to be passed if an Individual from the audience does not asked it to be removed to the regular public agenda.  I item on the Consent Agenda will not be debated by the council as this has already been done through closed doors and in secret.

 

 

 

A LEADER LEAD’S

1 Dec

A leader leads and plays no favorites and does not make close friends or special interest commitments.

He must be detached and must have a certain degree of hypervigilance to his business surroundings.   As, well as outside ample sufficiency to the world’s trending’s.

As they say, “The top is a lonely place.”  But, that is the cost of being a leader for the people’s interest and businesses.

NOTE:

The President’s request to have the Russian President visit the Oval Office and Country is better then President Clinton’s asking Monica to visit his “OVAL” instrument of Office.

I believe we as an American people (s) of the united States should welcome the Russian President with open arms.

All, but 7 percent of media in this country is controlled by a Jew.   Right, Maine Pubic Radio !

So, I would distrust the self serving media.

 

 

BLAST FROM THE PAST: Mom, 88 yrs. old states that the only way they can create an economy; is to”TAX” the Elderly and steal our Children’s inheritance”. NOW, COMES THE DEFENSE “Escentric, Attorney at Law for the Lewiston, Maine Taxpayer’s.

30 Nov

NOW COMES THE DEFENSE; in hopes that this Androscoggin, Maine Court will uphold the decision of the Lewiston, Maine Voters to reject the Lewiston City wide vote.

The Defendants, the 31-34 percent of Business and Residents that currently pay all the Lewiston City taxes on a Budget of $74 million dollars (Assessor Office; the Honorable Mr. Healy 207 513 3000; press O for live operator and ask for Assessors  Office.) is looking to distress their purchasing power as to their retirement  incomes.

  1. It is also; seeking relief from the possible 2000 Bates College Student voting on their Bates Student Identification Card; and, that the Courts adjudicate the validity of them not having to change their out of State Drivers Licenses and college financial records to reflect their residing in the State of Maine; as permanent residence of the State of Maine or Lewiston, Maine.
  2. Brief; of friend of the Courts: They can also buy a Maine State hunting and fishing licenses at reduced cost which is lose revenue to the States of Maine; Taxpayers. )
  3. And, as the Voters of year long resident and voting  population consider this a Bastardization of the voting pattern of Ward One (1) and Ward (3) of Lewiston, Maine’s voting demographic.

       In summary; it is with this relief that the True Residents of Lewiston, Maine are offering the following recommendation to the Androscoggin Maine Court System.

  • 1.    That the Bates Mill Complex  that contains the clock face; facing Ash Street, Lewiston, Maine; be utilized, in an effort to facilitate the development of the Bates Mill Complex and also to ensure the capitalization of their BANG for the BUCK of the $53 million dollars ( ME, State and Local) that is to be expended on the proposed school facility.   ( Friend of the Court Brief:  Review; Victor Gruen, Architect, livability of Retired Mill and Malls. )
  •  2.   And, the Defendants; the Taxpayer’s of Lewiston, Maine realizing that the Clock Towered; Bates Mill is abutted by the Canal.   The Defendants; would be willing to set aside and forgo their Lewiston, Maine People’s Initiative on the gift acquisition of the Canal from Brookfield White Pine of Canada and suggest to the other voting Lewiston, Maine public that this is a truly winning initiative with purposed underlying adjustments.
  • 3.   The Defendant’s stipulations are that the Brookfield White Pines of Canada will develop and rehabilitate the Canal area adjacent to the Bates Mill Clock Tower from Middle Street up to and under/over Main Street; Lewiston, Maine as to make it safe for Students to assess the New School from the Canal Street side of the building.
  • 4.   And that the plans consider the utilization of the hydro-electric generation plants in the Architectural designing processes to facilitate electrical power to be provided to the New School, Lewiston Street lights and Municipal Building of the City of Lewiston, Maine..
  •  5.   And, that the facility could be considered as an overcrowding mechanism for an English Language Learner (ELL) Student facility.  Thus, alleviating the overcrowding of the Lewiston, Maine Public School System for remedial student that could significantly impede other tutorial advanced students.
  • Defense rest it case; and, prays for rapid adjudication of this case  respectfully Eccentric, Attorney at Law ?

BLAST FROM THE PAST: LEWISTON, MAINE TAXPAYER’S; PEOPLE’S INITIATIVE ON CANAL ACQUISITION. This initiative failed to get signatures required and was passed by the Lewiston, Maine City Council – VOTE THEM OUT 11 / 2017. They had the power to put it before the Taxpayers; but, did not ?

22 Nov

Have brought forward; with the help of the Lewiston, Maine Taxpayer Community an initiative to halt the City of Lewiston, Maine acquisition or transfer of the Canal System by Brook field White Pine of Canada (BBWP of Canada) to the City of Lewiston, Maine.

I am in the hopes that the Community will endorse my efforts to collect 990 registered Lewiston, Maine voter signatures required to have the issue placed on a ballot for Vote at a to be determined date; by the City of Lewiston, Maine.

It is my assumption that this is an untimely attempt; on the part of the BWP of Canada to unload a Canal that will require more maintenance after the projected maintenance rehabilitation by BWP of Canada prior to transfer to the City of Lewiston, Maine Taxpayer’s.

It is also, my resolve that this issue may be revisited in a better City of Lewiston, Maine financial climate.

At the day of voting; I, will be seeking to gather the 990 signature required to get issue to the ballot.

HOW, MISMANAGED “R” THEY; meeting, held 17 July 2017 with one student their ?

28 Jul

A meeting was held by the Lewiston, Maine Police Department on the Lewiston, Maine’s City Council’s moratorium; regarding Bates College office off campus housing. Members from Bates College Campus Security and Lewiston, Maine’s Code Enforcement were present as were ward’s 1 and Ward’s 3 residents and a few student.

(Mr. James Lysen, Councilor for Lewiston, Maine Ward 1 who is or was a Bates College radio disjockey should fill you in more. Contact information jlysen@lewistonmaine.gov. He, is the one who incited Bates College to vote for him and out voted the residents of Ward 1. (Bates College Student’s can vote in Lewiston election with just a Bates College I.D. and a piece of junk mail or Campus to Campus letter delivered by U. S.M aile. They, do not even have to change their home States Diver’s License or change their residents or Bates Financial college forms. As, I recall their may be 3 student’s form Lewiston, Maine attending Bates College. But, this number may grow this year. Ask, kcloutier@lewistonmaine.gov as she works on campus ?

The issue was the Bates College students weekend off campus parties; which, were loud and students were to voicetress and were upsetting the pastoral serenity of the neighborhood at 3 am. Office campus housing is In Wards 1 and Ward 3 and owned by Bates College where all night weekend partying occurs and on long holiday weekends while school is in session.

The, fact that these few Campus individual were in gangs and stumbling from off campus housing to off Campus housing without being intercepted by the Bates College Security or the Lewiston, Maine Police Department is troubling at best for me.

I can remember when a Bates College Student was kill as a group of Lewiston, Maine hometown boy and a group of Bates College Student’s scuffled late one evening on 5 March 2002. DUFFEY student.

My, main message; is, that this Mmeting was held without “MAJORITY OF STUDENT’S” on campus at Bates College.

___________________________________________

SPEECH THAT WAS TO BE GIVEN TO LEWISTON, MAINE CITY COUNCIL; Tuesday 2017 @ 7pm on Greatfalls Television Channel 7 or 11. Click, on anything red or blue.

18 Jul

Name: Charles Arthur Soule’
Address: 135 Bartlett Street

I was quite unamused when I heard that the poorest children in the City of Lewiston, Maine were being charged a dollar a day to swim in the city owned park pool. The fact that this charge is being applied to the poorest square mile residents in New England is outrageous

Considering, that this Council gave the City Administrator a $3000 dollar raise on an over $120 thousand dollar salary.

And, you are allowing the Androscoggin Bank Colisee’ to fall better than 2 year in arrears to the City of Lewiston; and, to at last I knew a figure of over $36 thousand dollars.

And, have just found $150 thousand dollar of unaccounted fund to do the plumbing on the new field house at the building site at the Lewiston High School from the Community Development Black Grant; that had not been taken into consideration in regards to the Fiscal year 2018 Budget.

Contingency funds ?

NOTE:

Have talked to the head life guard a the Lewiston, Maine swimming pool.

Average, number of “Paid” swimmer a day; excluding rain days…..60 at cost to swimmer $1.00.

Average, number of days; not excluding rain days; “No: swims” …44 incl. Sat’s.

Money made by City of Lewiston for season on swimmers. . . . . . $2,640.00

Cost to City of Lewiston, Maine; if budgeted . . . . . . $2,640.00

Under, the cost of the $3,000.00 raise given to Lewiston City Administrator.

I swam in the pool back in 1964 as my cosine lived on Spruce Street. And, It was “free”.

Is, miss management the issue with Lewiston, Maine ? As, the City Administrator received a $3,000.00 dollar raise this year on an over $127,000.00 salary ?
