A quiet reshuffling of the CEC Board


What a difference a few days make. Even though the CEC board refuses to conduct public meetings, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t undergoing changes.

Compare the recent Google cache with the current website.


George “Junebug” Beatty is now nowhere to be found. He was the Chair of the E-Fund program. He was evidently doing a bang up job, because the Enquirer reported that over 4 out of 5 loans are behind on payments.
The Empowerment Corp. also has declined to release documents related to its $2.4 million small-business loan program. The corporation's attorneys acknowledge that 84 percent of the portfolio is behind on payments.

He also used to be listed as:

George Beatty, Junebug’s Steakhouse, Business/Employer Group Representative


Without even holding a public meeting, that is no longer an operative statement. JuneBug’s Steakhouse is now closed, and George Beatty is nowhere to be found on the CEC board.

George Beatty was appointed to the board by Dale B. Mallory.
Dale worked to get three members on the CEC board, George Beatty, Howard Beatty, and Len Garrett. The board then awarded a consulting contract to Dale in which he reported directly to Len Garrett according to an Enquirer report. It was Dale Mallory’s only stable employment in the last decade. By an amazing coincidence, these four all have a history with Genesis Redevelopment.

George “Junebug” Beatty is not the only recent deletion from the CEC board. His brother was taken off the board after gunning down activist Kabaka Oba in front of City Hall in cold blood.
Howard was a dishwasher at Junebug’s restaurant. Howard Beatty was Chair of the committee of Economic and Workforce development at the Cincinnati Empowerment Corp.

Consider the findings of the last City Manager’s report on the Cincinnati Empowerment Corporations expenditures, which found that the lion’s share of program funding went to job training. How a functionally illiterate dishwasher got to head committee that oversaw the majority of the program funding is beyond me.

At the height of their power Dale’s appointees were Chairman of the Board of Directors (Garrett), head of the corrupt E-Fund loan program (Junebug), and head of Economic & Workforce Development (Howie the hitman). Today both Beattys are gone, and Garrett has stepped down from his Chairmanship. Lamont Taylor, another member of the board resigned months ago after calling for Len Garrett’s resignation in an unsuccessful coup attempt. It was shortly after that that Len Garrett relinquished the Chair.

It is my belief that these three people exerted considerable control over the board and the entire organization.

In June funding for the Cincinnati Empowerment Corp. was suspended pending a full audit called for by members of City Council. In August Mayor Mallory appointed a new City Manager. A week later funding to the CEC was reinstated. To date no auditor has been selected to investigate the Cincinnati Empowerment Corporation. Even though he was impeached and removed from his own community council, Dale Mallory is running for the State House in the 32nd district. The three month delay in the selection of the auditor seals the deal. At this point no audit will start and conclude before the Mayor's brother goes on the ballot. Those dirty little secrets are destined to remain dirty little secrets when the voting public goes to the ballot.

Dear Mr. Bortz,
Please read this blog!
No smears.....Just the Truth.
The EZ needs a serious overhaul, starting with Junebug, Smith, Garrett and Cleveland.

Another "dirty little secret" is Dale's theft of WECC funds.
The Mayor was able to put the investigation in the deep freeze.
The WECC gave the CPD a smoking gun in that 5/19/6 check Dale wrote to cash.
The fact that this has been frozen for more than 3 months speaks volumes.

Why do you people continue to post that bogus photoshop check? It isn't real, it never happened, and you know it. Dale Mallory wrote a check to the YMCA that was already approved in the February meeting of the council, I was there. The real West End Council supports the YMCA. The fake West End Council paid off Shirley Colbert so that they can keep all of the money. Why doesn't anyone ask where Shirley Colbert and Jackie Martin Carr spent the membership dues? The real crime happened with Colbert and Martin-Carr.

Sorry, N8 rhymes with H8, but the real WECC is now posted officially on the City's website. They do support the overall community in their efforts individually and collectively.

Mr. Bortz, if you are so unappreciative of the FACTS offered here, step into the world of the West End. Actually your business interests and contacts are no strangers here. Come to understand the work of folks who would not allow their neighborhoods to be done in by 'random acts of kindness' foisted on their neighborhoods in the form of blitz PR and race/economic baiting. Take that much needed drive to Dusty's website for Mallory on Fairhill Drive -- unless you've already been there. Myths do not help lend crediblenes to government or business.

Nate can't stay away from this board. He loves it.
The check is real....writen to cash on 5/19/06. The CPD and FBI know it. CPD interviewed Dale at least twice. Hell, Dale admits he wrote that check for cash.
Dale's been spinning them a number of tall tails to try to 'splain his writing that check.
Trouble is, Dale painted himself in a corner. Dale gave up any claim to WECC office when he dropped his Appeals case in April.
"no longer interested....going after state office"
The check to the Y came in June as a lame cover-up attempt once his handlers told him he screwed the pooch.
Nate, ask the big boys to put a pencil in your butt.....Lawson says it's OK because you like it.

Nate....the WECC meetings are on video tape.
It shows that your story is a lie and the charges against Dale are true.
The authorities have the "smoking gun" to convict Dale. He's the Mayor's brother and the delay in investigating was due to the FBI run-around (too small for them to handle....even though it IS a felony). Back in CPD hands. They will drag their feet till after November 7th.

Dale was impeached in Feb, he wasn't getting authorization for any check.

In January he had his lawyer Jim Carroll explain that no vote would be taken until the membership was sorted out. No money was approved, and Jim Carrol can attest to that. He claimed to represent the WECC, so he might as well bear witness.

In December Dale walked out of the meeting after telling people there would be no vote.

Dale can pick another month, but he won't have any luck with that either.

Nate, Dale Mallory originally stated, and is quoted in the Business Courier as saying he received authority to write the YMCA check at the February WECC meeting. One big problem with that, Dale forgot that he didn't preside at the February meeting although he was there. Remember? He was impeached and removed from office in February. His story now is that the authorization came in January - Oops! The January meeting is on videotape. The videotape is in the hands of the CPD.

Blanchard, do you believe in the tooth fairy too? We both know that had a real crime been committed the Police would have broken the case months ago. The police & the FBI investigated it and found nothing. You are lucky they didn't arrest the people who were behind Dale's so called "impeachment", or the people who laundered the money like Colbert and Martin-Carr. This whole blog is a pack of lies and a bunch of hot air. The EZ works in the interests of poor black people, and so does Dale Mallory.

Nate: What black people are the CEC and Dale Mallory serving other than themselves? The CEC is supposed to provide seed money to improve economic and social conditions for Zone residents. Can you list any real, measureable accomplishments?

"The police & the FBI investigated it and found nothing."

Once again friends, N8 the Flake has gone to his wrong "sources" for info. The FBI has stepped aside to a certain extent for now, but CPD is on this & the ignorant Drama Dwarf forgets HUD has it's fingers in this. HUD can call in the FBI at will & demand action. That's why the Dwarf is only a coffee & copy boy, it doesn't know all the avenues of the justice system.

"The EZ works in the interests of poor black people, and so does Dale Mallory."

I find this to be an extremely racist statement, for starters. From the previous annual reports issued by Cleveland & the clowns before him, even those prettied up narratives sent to HUD doesn't hide the malfeasance & collusion orchestrated by this outfit.

I hardly think that well over 60% of the funding going into the administrative portion of this bureaucratic enrichment scheme could be called helping poor black folks. It's doing nothing but lining the pockets of crooks & enriching their personal interests.

However, it's always interesting to get N8 the Flake's take on the issues. Nothing but narcotics-induced babble.

"Why do you people continue to post that bogus photoshop check? It isn't real,"

N8, prove the check isn't real. You think you're so slick & smart, prove it beyond any doubt. Look forward to hearing from you in short order, little boy!

Meanwhile, I'm going to ring a couple of phones at City Hall. The people who answer will get Bortz to take a look at the wealth of TRUTHFUL info we have to offer.

Okay, TS I need help on a delinquent question that may help tie many of these hooligans to the powers we never see.

WHO appoints these folks to roles on boards such as Zoning??? While we can ascertain these from a myriad of council documents and voted on appointments over the years....who voted yeas and nays...or who were just easily schlepped into then group?

Carstairs Can you teach us how to dig and mine and find golden answers to these slurry of slugs?

The advantage would be compounding a separate list of appointees, boards, appointers (or approvers), time frame, association by political party and/or cabal and other affiliations and groups for Truth Squad and other viewing. Biggest concern, really not one, is doing some lackluster lawyer's job for them in the future.

Spent sometime in the library today culling through old local papers of various affiliations. Just leisurely. Notes will follow this weekend. The Carstairs Manual of Legal Pugilisics seems being compounded here for opening more cans of worms. You guess that the B. in d4Bs$ stands for "baitshop"?
Okay, I'm fishing on that one.

Trying to encurage Pops to get with his buddy who owns the large search and spot light ranch and sometime lighthouse palace to see if a flood or spotlight could be rented that reads HALE in the night skies. After him spending last week hunkered down in the truck scouting out the "slEaZy non meeting" he's been worse than an old cranky Wolverine......HMMM??
maybe thats why he's called that.

Graft or grift, folks. Same method of obtaining money that doesn't belong to them. Swindle. Cheat. Deceptive Practices.

City Zoning Board of Appeals. I've chased down 3 names, Caleb Faux, Chair, Thadd Dawson & Richard Mellott.

There needs to be some transparency with this outfit. Other cities put their meeting agendas & minutes out for public review.

Perhaps a little visit to a Planning Commission meeting (2x a month) could yield some results. A call to Mike Cervay's office would also be in order.

This zoning board, as best as I can figure, is just like any other city board, where people who have done favors get a seat. Then City Council does a ceremonial approval. Remember? Charlie Luken put his Daddy on the SORTA Board.

One other little follow up that somehow the news missed, or we missed the news:

Gerry Tenbosch, formerly of Invest in Neighborhoods, had all his charges dismissed in that theft & forgery felony caper he pulled. Papers say "in the interest of justice". The only thing I can think of is that somehow he paid back all the money he took, therefore, pursuing felony charges was moot. He wasn't declared incompetent.

Burning question: How is it when the Hale Car Caravan cruised upon Dale on Saturday, he was wearing a MALLORY T-shirt? It has always been my understanding that candidates didn't wear their campaign "colors", as it were. A simple, small, nametag in some instances is acceptable, but not a T-shirt that your campaign workers & volies trot around in for so long that you have to burn the damned thing after the election because you can't get the smells out.

I hope Big Timbo sees this. Timbo, it's time to take your boy to the woodshed. Broke ranks with candidate policy.

Meanwhile, I'll keep digging on this Zoning Board. Might have to make some phone calls in the morning.

Wolverine Jr., thanks for your generous comments. There's no "I" in team & we all contribute what we dig up. Mining for good, juicy stuff takes time & patience. Some of the team put forth ideas and theories to be followed up. When everyone pitches in, everyone wins & communities can be saved from the likes of those we are dealing with. These individuals must be stopped!

Love the idea of the mega search light! Write her name across the sky, "Hale YES!"

Hope to see Truth Squaders at our next caravan!

Dear Mr. Dallory,
M.E.Patton came to the WECC meeting and gave me some EZ material that you may be interested in scanning for general consumption.
Let me know when you might want it.

Welcome, Nukegal! The more, the merrier.

Did Mina make the meeting?

Vlad, N8 the Flake needs another pencil? Please don't tell me he showed up at the meeting with his bullhorn. I ordered him to prove beyond a doubt that the check was a fake. That was earlier in the day. I'm still waiting for his proof positive. (Hee Hee. Haw Haw. He knows it's real. He'll shut up & go away for a few days, then he'll be back with the same old tired drama.)

Hope the meeting went well. I hope you had the opportunity to talk with the President on the records idea.

Carstairs,
WECC meeting went smoothly. No obvious D4$ thugs there.
Had pleany of Hale Yes! lit at the ready in the event Mina showed up. I gave the Lit to anyone that expressed interest, but Mina did not identify her/himself.
The WECC exec. committee reported that they met at the DA office last Thursday to get a update on the theft charges against Dale.
Case is still very active per the DA.
The Planning office's Cervey (sp?) is using the CPD investigation as an excuse to delay their EZ audit. The foot dragging by that crew is unacceptable and they will receive TS wrath.
All of your ideas have been reviewed with WECC leaders. They are moving forward with their comprehensive plan after considering some excellent ideas. Each specific action item is approved by the WECC body (unlike the Mallory Mafia secret unilateral plots to plunder).
Don't want to get too specific here, but WECC business is known to WECC participants.
On a lighter note, I heard the Mallorybillies were bent out of shape on Monday night when a good Truth Squader attended their party at the Freedom Center with pal Jessie Jackson. This TS member was with a Mallorybilly insider, that REALLY pissed them off.
D4S was so upset, he slept over at Mommies in Mt Airy while poppa and 3M stewed and plotted revenge.
your pal,
Vlad
PS....I'll read MEPatton's stuff and see if I can locate Male Dallory. Is he/she back in town? I see there are new MD posts. Maybe he's buying a new clown suit and running for city Clowncil.

Reminder folks, Howdy finds out tomorrow how long he'll have to sit in Lucasville or Lebanon. The fun will start around 9:30 AM in Room 560 at the Court House. He's the last one on the Docket, so by the time they get through a couple of cases & Lawson decides to show up, the show will get on the road.

Got calls out there to City Hall for info & I'm waiting for someone who knows to bell me back.

Vlad, thanks for the timely updates. I get your drift. There's no point in going into a lot of details & giving the opposing side a glimpse of what's taking place & what we've got simmering on the back burner. We'll get caught up at one of our gatherings before a caravan.

However, I'm LMAO at the Freedom Center fiasco! That's hilarious!

Mina, hope you are feeling better. This change in the weather from Summer to Autumn is making a lot of people feel a bit uncomfortable.

Folks, this is in the Thursday edition of the Whistleblower:

"Our City Hall Snitch says we know Ken "Mad Dawg" Lawson didn't pay his federal income tax and his Ohio income tax, so doesn't it stand to reason that he didn't pay his City income tax either? Furthermore, if he hasn't paid his City income taxes, how come the City, unlike the IRS and the State Department of Taxation hasn't taken any action to recover it? If this is true, that would be really ironic, since the City, unlike the other two, has paid millions of over-taxed payers' dollars to him."

Mrs WJr is looking at the local reshuffling of the CEC Board. Why is Taylor still listed on the website, but somehow Hendy from Walnut Hills disappeared from the roster? Who else is missing beside DBM and HB? Who's filling in the gaps?

Comparison to other Empowerment Zones or Corps is also being worked. What counts for us here is our own but it's good to know that others ay have upas and down....or not. Ours is uber urban, some have agrarian connections.

Will keep TS posted with connectives and files.
