Stan Nord has tried to reach out to fellow Trustees who claim to care about taxpayers. Scott Preston was one of those.
Think back to this story: https://blnnews.com/2019/07/31/did-chris-koos-lie/
Preston knew before the rest of the Council that Chris Koos wasn’t telling the truth about Nord going “lone wolf” because Preston was copied on the email to Pam Reece informing the Town of a company who wanted to locate in Uptown.
Preston said nothing publicly in support of Stan.
Another issue Nord is attempting to fix are leases of public property that automatically renew without a Council vote. Many of these leases make no money for the Town or cost the Town money. Stan thinks all leases that don’t work for taxpayers should be discussed before they merely continue as is. (Novel thought!) The same issue applies to fee increases.
In emails received by FOIA, Stan tried to get Scott Preston on board:
Scott replied but added Pam Reece to the email:
Maybe Scott can explain what his response means!
I did not receive a response from Pam in the FOIA.
Stan tried again a few weeks later:
I didn’t receive any other responses from Scott or Pam in the FOIA. Emails were requested through July 28th.
It appears Stan and Karyn Smith will receive no support in attempts to govern for taxpayers instead of Town friends. Transparency isn’t important to all Trustees.
