Playbooks for Election Influence Operations Discovered

Censorship of the Conservative Point of View

There are many examples of big tech, the media and Government censoring the conservative point of view. One prevalent “Conspiracy Theory” is that there is a coordinated effort to achieve the silencing of “alternative” points of view. Now we know it is no longer a theory.

The links below reveal the depths of the effort. These documents were discovered by Dr Shiva Ayyadurai during his preparation for his lawsuit in defense of his First Amendment rights.

Dan Petticord, Assistant County Prosecutor – no report, but I’ll talk to you during executive session.

Michelle Hung – no report

David Moore – no report

Matt Lundy – JFS (Job & Family Services) provide services to over 47,000 members of our county and the employees are great. Saturday was a tremendous day and also to remember Sam Felton who we lost too soon during Covid, a Navy Star recipient and a double Purple Heart recipient with Central Park was named after him. He was an advocate for veteran’s issues. Deputy Steak Fry was a tremendous barbecue. Urban League asked him to tape something encouraging people to get vaccinated. We all see the reports coming out that we should be concerned about the very aggressive variant out there. If you have been hesitating to get the vaccine, please get the vaccination! The overwhelming of those hospitalized are unvaccinated. It is a very aggressive variant so please get vaccinated. (I am not retyping, he literally said this twice!)

Clerk’s report – no report, just retirement proclamation for 2 JFS employees

Board correspondence reading waived due to an executive session.

Meeting adjourned into executive session.

Architecture of County Buildings to be Evaluated

Commissioner meetings consist of a public portion and an Executive session which is not open to the public. The public portion of this meeting was less than 15 minutes while the Executive Session was approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes. 

All public business meetings begin with motions to approve seven resolutions where activity has taken place in the past week. Those seven resolutions are investments, appropriations, transfers, advance/repayments, requisitions, travel, and bills.  On 7/21/21 there were no advances/repayments or travel. The other five were all approved without any commissioner comment. Details regarding these Resolutions are available in the official meeting minutes at https://www.loraincounty.us/commissioners-departments/board-of-commissioners/board-agendas-minutes.  However, the process of preparing the weekly minutes involves various steps of approval delaying the publication of these minutes. The most current minutes available at this time are for the 6/23/21 meeting.  

The commissioners approved entering into two contracts with Fabo Architecture, Inc. of Parma, OH to perform architectural and engineering professional services for

  1. County buildings $15,900.
  2. Emergency services buildings $60,675  

Payment of $3,694.88 was approved to CSX for inspection services associated with construction of a new water line on North Ridge Road.

Commissioner also approved entering into a contract for maintenance with City of Elyria for a portion of Indian Hollow Road, Carlisle Township.

During public comment a representative of First Energy External Affairs introduced himself to the commissioners to let them know he is available as their main contact with First Energy during storm problems.

There were no reports from Tom Williams, County Administrator; Dan Petticord, Assistant County Prosecutor; commissioners Dave Moore and Michelle Hung, or clerk Theresa Upton.

Commissioner Lundy reported he had attended the Business Expo in Avon Lake, the Lorain County Farm Bureau Dinner and Policy Development Meeting at Lorain Community College, the Investment & Advisory Committee, and will be attending the dedication of the Sam Felton Park.

He reported that the county’s investments total $162 M. Interest for the past year was $1.2 M, but due to interest rates dropping that figure is expected to go down in the future. There was a time when the county regularly earned as much as $6M to $7M annually in interest.
