Edit: 4:16 pm. Hi to Dave Molstad - saw you just visited my blog. Hope you enjoy! Hi to Carol.
I seem to be more known now, than when I had All Things Union Bay. Surprised at the results now when Union Bay Improvement District is Googled compared to 2010. Surprising really, since most people didn't know I had a blog.
With 2012 around the corner and court dates coming up, it's time to reflect on how I arrived at this position. Although it's expensive to fight for what is right - it's definitely worth it. It all started in Jan. 2006 when I joined the Union Bay Residents Association and was one of the enthusiastic supporters of Kensington Island Properties.
As I've stated before, Kensington Island Properties, it's VP, and his enthusiastic supporters have screwed our community. This is when I reared my ugly head and started asking questions of UBRA and how it was run, and the closeness with the VP of KIP, including members of the Union Bay Improvement District. Asking questions of UBID raised red flags all over the place. No one liked me asking questions, which of course, causes one to ask more questions. My opinion and conclusion: Our Improvement District has not been run in the best interest of the community for years.
Priority has been given to Kensington Island Properties. It is my opinion that Union Bay has been manipulated by this developer since the year 2000. Befriending those with little intelligence promising a better life in exchange for their enthusiastic support. Patting them on their little heads telling them how smart they are, they could be in the driver's seat negotiating directly with KIP (bypassing the RD), Union Bay would get the DCC instead of the RD. Hmm what happened there?
The VP himself isn't exactly 'gifted', so he's certainly not going to surround himself with anyone smarter. KIP's entourage doesn't consist of Mensa members. Just a bunch of lackeys thinking they've latched onto the money train.
The more I dig, the more those dirty little fingers of KIP show up. Kip is always the common denominator. Just try to get the VP to answer any questions. Only appears when the questions are controlled. The VP of KIP has become a phantom - appears out of thin air and then is gone again. The local papers love printing pictures of him posing, pointing, signing and handshaking - don't expect any information.
next post will have editorial. FUVM
