And, a big thanks to Phil Round for covering Union Bay matters and doing a good job of getting the facts straight. Phil could give the reporters at the Record a few tips on fair coverage.
The article by Phil Round in the Echo today is a wonderful example of manipulation.
New improved, refresh the team, new chair, blah blah
I love this:
Molstad, who will remain a member of the five-person board, told the Echo it was a reorganization to refresh the team and would only add: "We needed a new chair."
Let's get this straight right off the top.
This is a Political Party that doesn't tell anyone, including their members, what they are doing.
Who calls the shots in a political party - could it be the leader?
Is the new Chair the New Leader of the TAG Political Party?
Who is the leader of the Political Party TAG? The Political Party TAG runs the Union Bay Improvement District.
Who is really the Chair of the Union Bay Improvement District? Is it the named person or is it the Leader of the TAG Political Party?
Will the Leader of the TAG Political Party sit as an underling at Union Bay Improvement District Board Meetings?
The Leader of the Political Party TAG needed a new face as chair. There has been no change other than the Administrator is leaving. Everything is the way it has been since at least 2006 when I first started noticing 'odd' statements made by self proclaimed community spokespeople. This one is smarter than the others - only difference.'Fool the eye'. Appearances, impressions, practice, control, total control. Create an image. Offer hope. Divert attention. Control. Eliminate information to doubters. Control. Diagnose/label detractors. Control. Determine source of income of detractors. Insatiable appetite for control.
TAG is run exactly like the fake Union Bay Residents' Association, a private club. TAG was smarter (hard not to be) as they didn't register as a Society so they can run their little group however they wish I guess.
Just like the fake UBRA, the leader of TAG uses the same tactics. Different class/income, that's all.
