Cedric Glover Involved With Drug Use?

WHOA WHOA WHOA!!! STOP THE PRESSES! NEWEST RELEASE FROM WWW.TRUTHABOUTGLOVER.COM:

Cedric Glover Involved With Drug Use?

Dannye Malone was in a divorce lawsuit with his ex-wife.

During this proceeding a number of interrogatories were submitted to Dannye Malone from his ex-wife’s legal council that required him to give a yes or no answer to his usage or marijuana in their matrimonial domicile with Mayor Cedric Glover and Chief Administrative Officer Dale Sibley.

The answers have been sealed.

On the 2nd page, Interrogatory numbers 29, (C), (D), and (E) are questions asked and the names of Mayor Cedric Glover and Chief Administrative Officer Dale Sibley are mentioned as participants of the consumption, ingestion, and/or smoking of marijuana in the matrimonial domicile (home) of Dannye Malone and Montina Malone. It also alleges that Dale Sibley, Chief Administrative Officer went to Dannye Malone’s house on numerous occasions to pick-up “packages” of marijuana. This implies that top city officials are directly involved in drug trafficking, which is a serious legal offense.

Just more questions Cedric Glover needs to answer. But given Glover’s track record this election, such answers will most likely never be given and he will simply resort to baseless attacks aimed at his opponent in order to distract he electorate from the issue at hand.

Here is the documentation:

wow… all I can say. Would love to hear an answer, but I doubt Glover will say anything- as per usual.

Allen’s Endorsement City Council District B

Independent Deborah Allen says Sims, “Has her thumb on the heart beat of our district!”

Deborah Allen has endorsed Sheva Sims for the Shreveport City Council District B seat. Allen made the announcement during a press conference this morning at “Columbia Cafe”, a popular, Highland area restaurant.

“The easiest thing I could do is to not endorse anyone, but after researching the platforms and agendas of both candidates, I feel I must do the right thing. And the right thing is to endorse Sheva Sims,” said Allen, during the endorsement.

“I feel she is our only choice for the opportunity to have representation who sees through our eyes. The majority of her political contributions come from working class people. Sheva is the choice of the Central Trades endorsement. Sheva is a candidate who is obviously brilliant, helps others that can’t help themselves, not only advocates and represents her clients of less income, but goes the extra mile for them even when she doesn’t have to,” said Allen.

“Sheva really does put people first. She will fight to represent us all and has done just that for the last twenty years professionally and personally. A vote for her, is a vote for me, is a vote for you and everyone we know,” added Allen.

Bishop Larry Brandon and current Shreveport City Council members, Joyce Bowman and Joe Shyne also spoke during the press conference, reiterating their support for Sims.

Allen received 11 percent of the vote for the District B seat in the Oct. 2 general election; finishing third in the race. The top two contenders; including Sims, face a runoff election on Nov. 2, 2010.

District D Endorsement

First of all, I would like to thank all those who supported me and voted for me in the primary election. I appreciate all of your votes, thoughts, efforts, and prayers. This has been an amazing experience and I have learned so much about myself and about this beautiful city that I am proud to call my home.

Early in this race I promised the Republican Party leadership that I would be willing to stand up for what was right- even when no one else would. It is with this promise in mind that I make my official endorsement in the District D City Council race. It would be very easy to do what many expect of me, and endorse the Republican in the run-off, but I believe in my heart that there is a better option for the voters in District D.

I have listened to both of the remaining candidates and their ideas and beliefs throughout the campaign, and I have spoken with both of them since the primary in order to determine who would receive my support in the run-off. Today, I unreservedly give my full support to Phillip Templeton. He is the true conservative left in this race. Phillip has vast experience in public service and a proven track record of working to make Shreveport a better place.

I urge those that supported me, my fellow Republicans, and all of District D- to look past party lines and to vote for the person who truly cares about Shreveport and all her citizens. I urge you to please vote for Phillip Templeton as our next City Councilman for District D.

 

Spirit Day 2010

While I personally believe that homosexuality is a sin (though no worse than the others we are ALL guilty of), I do not think it is EVER okay to bully or abuse someone for being different, If, as Christians, we want to make a difference, we must embrace the LGBT community with love and compassion- not with words of hate. Please consider wearing purple today as a way to encourage young people going through this struggle to not give up on themselves, and to remind them that God never will either!

WEAR PURPLE ONLINE AND OFFLINE ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20 TO REMEMBER LGBT YOUTHAmericans Urged to Show Support for LGBT Youth on Spirit Day
October 18, 2010, New York, NY –October 18, 2010, New York, NY – The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) today joined millions of community members and allies to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth by participating in Spirit Day and remembering those teens who have taken their own lives as a result of bullying.
Spirit Day, created by teenager Brittany McMillan earlier this month, now counts millions of Americans committed on Facebook to wearing the color purple on Wednesday, October 20, 2010.
In addition to wearing the color purple, GLAAD is also asking Americans to turn their Facebook and Twitter photos purple until Wednesday and to share messages of support for LGBT youth. For more information on the free application and suggested messages, please visit http://www.glaad.org/SpiritDay.
“I will be wearing purple on Spirit Day,” said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios. “The tragic suicides of our youth have started an important dialogue among Americans about the dangers of bullying, and now is the time to show our children that millions of Americans accept and value them regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.”
Purple symbolizes ‘spirit’ on the rainbow flag, a symbol for LGBT Pride that was created by Gilbert Baker in 1978. The goal of Spirit Day is to show LGBT youth who are victims of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment that there is a vast community of people who support them. As the event’s Facebook page says: “This event is not a seminar nor is it a rally. There is NO meeting place. All you have to do is wear purple.”
Last week after receiving thousands of concerned e-mails from constituents, GLAAD worked with Facebook to develop a solution to address violent and hateful anti-LGBT comments posted to a Spirit Day Facebook event page. That page now has over one million people confirmed to participate.
For more information please visit these events on Facebook: “R.I.P. ;; In memory of the recent suicides due to gay abuse, wear purple” and Spirit Day, A GLOBAL Day of remembering.
LGBT youth in need of immediate help should contact The Trevor Project ‘s 24/7 Lifeline at 866-4-U-TREVOR (866-488-7386) or The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

Glover v. Wooley

Here is a summary of the mayoral debate from this evening:

Both candidates agreed on property standards enforcement, open meetings laws, the importance of Community Renewal, getting bathrooms in A. C. Steere Park, and that a dog park would be great asset to Shreveport.

But things got contentious pretty soon when Wooley’s commercials were brought up. In my opinion, Glover sidestepped answering the questions about Mrs. Priest and her contract, instead taking the opportunity to blast unnamed members of the Airport Authority for trying to hinder progress. I find the idea of Mayor Glover trying to “change” the Airport Authority rather hypocritical considering that he rehired the Director after Joyce Bowman fired him. He did address this briefly saying that he only did this because he didn’t think it was proper of Mrs. Bowman to fire him while serving as interim Mayor. He didn’t give any justification at all for him deserving to keep his job based on merit.

Glover also didn’t impress with his answer on the Taro Harvey scandal that has been making the rounds on local blogs. He claimed that the names of some large donors were somehow mixed up with the names of paid campaign workers for election day. It seems to be a very weak excuse, with no verification possible. Interesting to note that he did admit to hiring a convicted felon, burglar, and drug user to work on his campaign.

Other interesting questions:

One random question about Wooley failing to pay a $95,775 promissory note- he seemed amused by the question and said the asker must be confusing him with another Bryan Wooley.

And someone asked the candidates if either of them had ever had a restraining order against them. Wooley said that in the midst of his divorce there was one issued against him. He didn’t elaborate as to why, only saying that he and his ex-wife now have a cordial relationship for the sake of their three beautiful children. Glover said that he never had a restraining order against him, and went on to defend Wooley saying that sometimes divorces get messy and that things that take place in them aren’t a proper reflection of the people involved and that it was unfair to make this an issue. I agree and respect the Mayor for his words.

Overall I think both candidates did a good job, but for me Wooley was far superior, I felt that he answered the questions more directly and with less evasiveness.

David Melville

I spoke with David Melville, who is running against incumbent John Fleming for Congress, tonight at the mayoral forum.

I asked him a few questions and a few of them I felt deserved to be shared.

When asked about Nancy Pelosi and whether or not he would vote for her as speaker of the house if elected, Melville would not rule out voting for her. All I could get him to commit to was voting for the most “moderate” of the choices. Somehow I don’t think Mrs. Pelosi could ever be described as “moderate.”

I also asked him about the bailouts, and while he said he didn’t agree with bailing out major corporations, he had no problem with the government lending companies money- as long as they pay it back. This seems kind of like a double answer- even if it is a loan, isn’t it still a bailout? GM was bailed out- and they paid it back. It is still unjustified government interference in the capitalistic market place.

And finally, I asked him about ObamaCare- and he said he liked the bill “AS IS” and would vote to fully fund it. He emphasized to me that his opponent wanted to repeal the whole thing, which coincidentally is exactly what I want to happen.

So while I apprecitate his willingness to answer my questions, he has only reinforced my belief that Congressman Fleming is doing a great job and will 100% get my vote in the November 2nd Election.

 

On a side note, early voting is now going on downtown at the Registrar of Voters. If there is the possibility that you might miss the Nov. 2nd election, please go vote now- the future of our nation, state, and city hang in the balance.
