Empowerment Corp. debtor had business ties to board

Business Courier, Dan Monk June 30, 2006

In case you don’t receive the Business Courier, Dan Monk’s article in this weeks release uncovers yet another questionable transaction involving the EZ. Mr. Monk writes…

"Another week, another quirky business deal involving the Cincinnati Empowerment Corp.

In a February bankruptcy court filing, an attorney representing the nonprofit poverty-fighting agency accused one of the agency’s debtors of trying to conceal assets in a development company with ties to an Empowerment Corp. board member."
The bankruptcy dispute involves a less familiar name on this blog but one who is specifically related to CityLink and the reality of its connection to the Empowerment Corp.

According to Monk, EZ attorney Greg Berberich alleged Big Dollar, aka Thaddaus Dawson, defaulted on a 2002 EZ loan of $125,000 prompting the February bankruptcy court filing.

Dawson is accused of hiding $500,000 in assets from creditors by failing to file details on property he owned through development company Ca-Josh Development Ltd. Monk’s article indicates that one of Ca-Josh’s holdings is a former nursing home in Avondale valued at $641,000. Ca-Josh acquired the asset from Queen City Youth Development Foundation Inc. in October 2005 then transferred it back in March. Queen City Youth was founded by EZ board member Ozie Davis. Ca-Josh purchased the property from Queen City Youth for $1.00.

Thaddaus Dawson is a current member of the Cincinnati zoning board of appeals. He is one of two that voted to uphold the zoning certificate of compliance issued to CityLink.

This article will be available online on Monday.

Truth Squad,
Dale got a column printed in Saturday's Enquirer in which he ignores all the charges and touts all his 'contributions' to the community.
Phenicie or Norris probably wrote it. Tard' like Dale is incapable of stringing a thought on paper.
This demands our side to send their story to the Enquirer.
Where are the WECC funds/records Dale?

This little zip-a-dee-doo-dah is in Saturday's Enquirer. Don't seem much damage control here, just a bunch of whining, crying & boo hooing. Also included is that Mallory Family "Entitlement" baloney:

Personal attacks over neighborhood role uncalled for
BY DALE MALLORY
I have recently come under fire for my job as a neighborhood development liaison with the Cincinnati Empowerment Zone. However, according to a report issued by Empowerment Zone attorneys and reported in The Enquirer on June 19, I did nothing illegal.

In an editorial June 20, The Enquirer said I have "a lengthy history of community service, advocating economic empowerment and anti-poverty efforts and mobilizing citizens to fight crime." I am proud of that record and I am tired of having it defamed.

I worked with the Empowerment Zone for nearly a year, and in that time, I helped get the ball rolling on a lot of projects that will be very beneficial to some of Cincinnati's most impoverished communities. I spent the majority of my time with the Empowerment Zone working on issues of neighborhood and economic development and Youth Employment. In addition to that, I was involved with the Technical Assistance Program, which helps communities pay for architects, attorneys and other costs associated with development preparation.

I also had meetings with the proponents of the controversial Citylink project. As I've already said, I was simply meeting with them in my capacity as a neighborhood development liaison. Citylink was a major development being proposed in an Empowerment Zone neighborhood, and I thought it was important to get the facts on what was being proposed and find out the impact on the community.

There were some people within the West End Community Council who opposed Citylink, but most of the vocal opposition came from developers and people from outside the neighborhood. I suggested that we at least give the Citylink group a chance to come in and make their case. As a result of that position, the group opposed to Citylink has subjected me and my family to a constant barrage of vicious personal attacks.

I am now running for state representative, and in the primary May 2, the people of the West End spoke loud and clear by giving me a majority of their votes.

Now it's time to put this controversy behind us. It's time to start focusing on November and the issues that affect our state.

Dale Mallory is a longtime West End community leader who is running for state representative.

July 1, 2006 The Whistleblower:

The Cincinnati Police Department is looking into whether Dale Mallory's impeachment was conducted to the letter? Give us a break! We expect more from the boys in blue. Sure, they ultimately report to the Mayor, but if this gets covered up because of that relationship, it'll be another sad day for our City. We need justice!



It surely seems like someone is looking for an excuses NOT to prosecute this fool. Let's for a minute just humor ourselves. Let's say Dale was not impeached, he still has no right to spend council money without council's approval. We hope that this doesn't get muddied by a "Mad Dawg" Lawson defense of impeachment technicalities.

Sunday's Whistleblower News:

Our City Hall Cynic figure out why Milton Doheney would leave Lexington/Fayette County for Cincinnati. Maybe his contract wasn't going to be renewed. Mallory's critics should've checked that out.



Commenting on our exclusive report about the cover-ups at City Hall, Sarcastic Sid says, "Surely you aren't implying that the Mayor would intervene on his brother's behalf?! I mean, yes the Mayor pressured Greg Harris (who was asked by the Party brass not to run for Council in '05 so he could run for legislature in '06) and Sam Herd into not challenging Dale in the primary. And yes, the Mallory family tried to get the Dems to override the Nominating Committee's recommendations and instead endorse Dale over Eve Bolton in the primary. But you don't think he'd go so far as to exert his political influence over the police, do you?! Why, that would be unethical!



"Poor Dale. He lost his lucrative consulting gig and got impeached by West End Community Council. His only remaining employment option is becoming a politician . . . inheriting the seat previously owned by his brother and daddy. You gotta love democracy!"



Will wonders never cease! Saturday morning we actually saw the number of Mallory's Murders updated in the Fishwrap. For those of us keeping score, the Official 2006 Whistleblower/ Cincinnati Tourism Board/ Mark Mallory Murder Count is now "43." Ghizzy Lizzy says, "This is shocking." TV Coroner O'Dell Owens says, "It's really disturbing!" And our Girly Man Mayor says, “Screw it! I'm going on vacation to Fort Lauderdale with my male friend."



Curiously, The Kevinator at CityBleat points out that Mallory's vacation destination is best known as the locale for the 1960 cult classic film, "Where the Boys Are," if you know what we mean.

He went on a ride on the only gay dinosaur that has ever been discovered. I think the scientific name is Megasoreass.

Anon4:20, the posting is what was found in the Whistleblower's daily news. There's no innuendos here or hidden messages. I picked this up & thought I'd post it as an FYI.

3M & his friend reportedly went to Ft. Lauderdale. It's in the City Beat. Folks scheduled for the same flight took pics with their cellphones.

3M stiffed a Housing Group forum that's been on his calendar for weeks. His office failed to notify everyone. Rather than take a later flight, he fingered these folks & started vaca. What a Class Act Mayor. Ain't done spit since he took the high chair. I guess we can't expect much in the second half either.

This is totally off the subject, but did any of you see the Citybeat blog post about 3M going on vaca with a male friend to Ft. Lauderdale and cancelling a meeting with a housing group at the last minute? People took pics with their cellphones.

What the mayor does and doesn't do with his private time and in his bedroom is not the subject matter of this blog.

I suspect that the Mayor is using his power and influence over an ongoing police investigation concerning his brother. That is a big deal here.

I don't care about what the mayor does in his bedroom. For that matter, I don't care for what any of you people do in your own bedrooms.

Unless of course it involves midgets. I have a midget fetish.

I was kidding already, no posting about midgets either.

CityBeat hasn't run articles on CityLink, Dale Mallory or the Cincinnati Empowerment Corporation. That blog entry makes them look like a low rate tabloid. For the record the Cincinnati Herald doesn't appear to even be in the game either.

I would like commenters to stop redirecting the focus of the subject matter to the Mayor’s sexual proclivities. It is offensive to some, and we have bigger fish to fry.

peace

Dear Mr. Dallery,
Thanks for not deleting the posts that you found offensive.
You have made a similar pitch before.
The response is that we really do like the gay community.
We also like honesty.
We also like to point out when the Emperor has no clothes.
3M plays the pompous role that begs to be deflated.
3M's power and Mallory Mafia power have been used by D4S to do great harm to the community.
The community has been the victim of lies, government resources secretly deployed by the Mallorys to promote CityLink, a "Disney" PR perfect Mallory family myth.
The reality is that there is nothing perfect about this dysfunctional family. It's not politically correct to observe even a simple truth such as the fact that 3m LIVES in Mt Airy, but he says "Dayton St" to continue a Mallory myth.
The CityBeat "where the boys are" comment gave an opening for a few jokes. This blog has been an equal opportunity venue for us to dust off old jokes and try a few new ones.
The only thing we hate is hypocracy and getting abused by D4S/CityLink and the Mallory Mafia.
Gay people are among the brightest, talent laden, interesting folks I have the joy of knowing. Most have a great sense of humor. To exclude them from light hearted bantor is to play by Mallory rules.

Male Dallory 1:19, it's my bad. I should have exercised some edit caution when posting what the Whistleblower put out there in his daily reports. By all means, the focus needs to be on Jail4Dale, his associates & hangers-on who are fueling all this criminal, illicit activity. I'll be more cautious in the future. It's important for us to stay focused & uncover every last shred of valuable info.

Thanks for the warning. But I do like your remarks about midgets.
