South Stormont Deputy Mayor Makes Media Rounds With Leaked Integrity Report That Condemns Her by Jamie Gilcig

tammy parkway HSCFN –  Today if you make the rounds in Cornwall media there is a respite from Rob Ford stories as South Stormont Deputy Mayor Tammy Hart has contacted area media and tried to get ahead of a report that was tabled to come out on the November 27th meeting of her council.

Ms Hart was spanked in that report like a naughty child.   She complains about the cost of the services of the integrity commissioner but what was her council’s options in light of her public statements and actions in and out of camera?

Ms Hart gave a radio interview to Corus Radio in Cornwall.

In the name of Transparency which seems to be tantamount to Ms Hart we are releasing the Report from Mr. Swayze.

swayze 3

swayze 5

If you read that and then listen to some of Ms Hart’s clips and interviews to get ahead of the report it really feels odd?   After all why is she chastising Mr. Swayze if he in fact did not suspend or penalize her?   What did she expect in light of what she herself has admitted to?

As for the cost to the Township shouldn’t she have to reimburse South Stormont when the Investigator has clearly found in favour against her?  Isn’t her actions; the ones she laments the cause of the Township having to go to the degree of bringing in Mr. Swayze?

In fact to capture some of the flavour of Ms Hart here is an excerpt of a complaint letter regarding her behaviour in front of an investor for one of the largest potential projects South Stormont has seen in awhile.  (We whited out the name of the investor and company present)

While it’s important to stand for one’s principle’s and transparency and accountability are crucial in this day and age is this really about those issues or does Deputy Mayor Hart have some issues to deal with herself?

While there may be a need for Transparency and Accountability in South Stormont it might need to be focused on the Deputy Mayor rather than her council.

Should Deputy Mayor Tammy Hart Have to Pay for the Cost of the Integrity Commissioner?

What we seem to have here is someone who upon hearing of a damaging report tried to get some spin and traction to message the story in her favour?   Someone who in spite of reading the report that gave her a near free pass with the proviso of not essentially lashing out and accepting results, ran out, leaked the report out before other councilors had read it and violated the trust of her council.

Ms. Hart definitely has some personal issues to deal with, herself. That has been obvious for quite some time.
What would it be like if all politicians behaved in the fashion she does? The Integrity Commissioner was very kind to her. What would it be like if he had reviewed all of her activities? She said she could change but what does she do?

Most people get into politics because of a desire to serve the public and contribute to the community. A few get into politics because of a desire for attention. When a particular politician is regularly observed scrapping with their fellow council members, and showboating for the media, it’s a good indication of why they chose to be in politics. Most successful long term politicians have the ability to persuade, compromise, and show respect for the other members of the team. Using an elected position on council to feed a personal desire for the spotlight might work for a while, but… Read more »

Tammy Nation must be getting fired up in South Stormont by now. Hey, I’ve made mistakes… Nobody’s perfect… I’m moving forward… I have a trainer… I’m going to be nicer…. Ya know what?… I can’t take back the past… You might be perfect… but I’m not…. You just wait… There’s only one Tammy Hart… I’ll show you… This means war!

I basically agree with your observations Furtz. Perhaps this poor wannabee politician is suffering from a form of big head syndrome. Whatever her problem is, next term she will likely have all the time in the world to get help. Sooner if she has the wherewithal to call it a day and do the right thing and resign with what little dignity she has still intact.

let me see everyone here wants transparency yet here we shoot a person who fights to gets thing out into the open . Often these people fight a lonely battle its worse when they are behind closed doors where there are no witnesses to both sides As far as the integrity commissioner its quite obvious Mr. Swayze is easily swayed by hear say as his statements on the pellet plant tend to validate without digging for the facts he makes statements about the pellet plant and how Tammy Hart was against it from the start! I did a little digging… Read more »

Too bad the most recent comments feature is no more. Makes it pretty much impossible to follow discussions.
Oh well.

Here is a excerpt from a local publication followed by some links

(MODERATED because it a heck of a lot more than an excerpt was posted}

Editor’s note to author – please note length of excerpts, especially from media we are currently in litigation with.

Thanks

If you can respect or tolerate elected officials that lack integrity, etc, knock yourself out.

The issues that revolve around Deputy Mayor Hart have their origins with the McGuinty government’s misguided green energy policies in Ontario. Without such misguided policies and misguided allocation of tax dollars, there would have been zero funding allocated for a bio-pellet plant, nor for the ill-fated ethanol plant that had previously been slated for Cornwall. CBC News actually aired a documentary about companies that show up in smaller, economically challenged communities with business plans that depend on government funding. For over a decade beginning during the mid-1970’s, Cornwall had literally become a revolving door for such companies that stayed only… Read more »

Furtz………I am feeling very lonely lately. There are three people that I truly miss. My life feels empty without them.. Hoping that they are well and that they are still fighting for all Canadians.

Perhaps had the integrity commissioner looked at the (deplorable) history of government funded start-up companies in Canada, then he and the Mayor of South Stormont may have understood the deputy mayor’s eventual opposition to the pellet plant. An online internet search of the Stasko brothers reveals nothing of any past business success while a search of the webpages of the leading energy-sector venture capitalists reveals nothing to link any of them to the Stasko pellet plant proposal. They literally showed up in the area with a business plan that depended on government funding and nothing on any of google, yahoo,… Read more »

Hang in there Stella. They’re probably just catching their breath and regrouping for the next onslaught.

I will present the perspective that the deputy mayor is the scapegoat for and not the cause of the failure of the government funded start-up pellet plant proposal for South Stormont. There was no way that a pellet plant at Ingleside could have provided pellets for a 120MW power station located near Thunder Bay . . . there are other pellet plants located much closer. The transportation cost between Ingleside and Atikokan would have been lunatic. Ontario government is shutting down Nanticoke power station in Southern Ontario, so no wood pellets needed from Ingleside. With regard to exporting wood pellets… Read more »

Good to know you’re still alive and kicking, Kilroy. I was a little concerned about your bile pressure levels. It’s never good to let it build up too much.
Carry on.

Ah but even YOU must admit that it`s a bit disingenuous for the French to push for the right for Canadians to be able to — CHOOSE — what language they speak in their own parliament and then turn around and condemn the English people for actually choosing to speak English in that very institution — which btw (just in case people were not aware) just happens to be the common MAJORITY language in Canada —

Just sayin…

Thanks Harry For a very educational report, it would be very interesting to see a full dollar for dollar cost to the township report if any including all costs around the property deal, development costs , and income received from this group over the several years they were in town developing their plan at least the township would have realized some significant taxes on the property and interest on the Mortgage they held to off set these costs its hoped . These cost should not be hidden by in camera rules as they should be a matter of record in… Read more »
