Nelson, a world-wide well known entertainer, has been performing for many years and has been an opening act for other celebrities on the Las Vegas Strip and in Europe.
I am one of those fortunate few invited to the by-invitation-only event, so next week I will inform the readers of the Las Vegas Tribune about this event. The Las Vegas Tribune Roving Reporter will be there with his “flash” machine to leave evidence of what may happen at Nelson Sardelli’s residence, also known as The Fort, for its security.
Happy Birthday, my dear friend, and many, many more!!!
Why do they have to be so arrogant and not let anyone have a different opinion from them, like they are always right and “we the people” are not allowed to disagree with them?
Public officials believe that their constituents are mentally retarded and that they are never going to find out all their tricks and lies and discover all their cynical behavior.
Jacob Snow, the former head honcho of the RTC (Regional Transportation Commission) was picked to replace retired Henderson City Manager after being embroiled in a controversy over the nation’s largest public transit contract; three years later he announced that he was retiring, shortly after he was vested with his thirty years of public service.
The powers that be make it look as if Jacob Snow was taking the city manager’s position as a “sacrifice” to serve the community — not to avoid a scandal after being embroiled in a controversy over the nation’s largest public transit contract. After all danger passed, he announced his retirement.
Look at the case of North Las Vegas Judge Catherine Ramsey, who was acting within the law at all times; and her colleague, another judge, who worked right next to her and they had to deal with each other on a
daily basis, and who double-crossed her and betrayed her by stabbing a knife in her back.
According to a report by the Veterans In Politics International, schedule of events Judge Ramsey came into work and found the prior Judge’s Judicial Executive Assistant, by the last name of Forti, had vacated her office and turned in her keys and badge. Judge Ramsey was told by Human Resources Director Joyce Lira the employee made a hasty decision and could not therefore purchase PERS unless she is a current
employee. Court Administrator Debbie Miller and City Human Resources Director Lira asked Judge Ramsey to give Forti an additional 30 days of pay in order to do that. Judge Ramsey said no — she quit.
Chief Judge Sean Hoeffel, North Las Vegas Municipal Court, makes an arrangement (I call it “a deal”) with the City Manager and overrules Judge Ramsey’s decision.
The employee is placed on Administrative leave. Chief Judge Hoeffel has Judge Ramsey sign the letter placing Forti on administrative leave since it is her Department. Now Judge Ramsey is being sued because she did what the Chief Judge and City Manager told her to do, on her very first day on the job.
That is cold blooded cynical behavior in part because Judge Ramsey has not allowed the gang of Mayor John Lee to intimidate her as he does with everyone else in city hall.
And talking about deals, the government big shots who have the mentality that the voters are ignorant or blind, make moves and decisions right in front of everyone pretending to “sacrifice” themselves for the good of the community. It is almost like copying all those running for office who want to “give back to the community” that has been so good to them and their family.
It reminds me of former city councilwoman Lynette Boggs Mac Donald (no relation to Michael Mac Donald) who begged all city officials to appoint her to the city council, and a few months after she joined the Board of the Stations Casinos because she could not live on the salary from the city council.
That is when I reminded her that she knew what the city council salary was before she starting begging to be appointed to the council. If she cannot live with more than a grand a week, then she should not be a
Then there is the judge that sentenced a defendant to three times the expected or usual sentence because he, the judge, “didn’t know” if the defendant might commit the same crime again in ten years, when he’d be released from prison. Justice for all? and yet that judge gets reelected, again and again and again.
The judge’s victim in this case was an Hispanic young man, and the same judge raised another man’s bail to a million dollars because hizhonor did not like the way the defendant said thank you. He also
was Hispanic; do you suppose there could be some discrimination there — or aren’t Hispanics allowed to see that retaliation as discrimination?
And if you are reading this column because once in a while you read the Las Vegas Tribune, then you must be familiar with the series Alexandra Cohen has been writing about Judge Allan Earl, who crossed
the state line to steal a whopping one million dollars to help his lawyer friends before he retires for alleged poor health.
And last but not least we are working on a case that involves a former Los Angeles Police Department Lieutenant with another case of “Trust malfunction” that was reported last Friday on my radio show, Face The Tribune, this newspaper’s radio station.
These are only a few samples of how the justice works in our city and how our illustrious elected officials mistreat our community.
That is why I always said that we should get rid of this “new mafia” that does not know how to treat the community and welcome back the old mafia that treated us all with respect.
