Sun City Anthem
"Ain't Ready for Reform"
When we caught word of an individual named Sherryl Daly being placed on the Sun City Anthem Lifestyle Committee, we were astounded !
It reminded me of the "doings" of an old Chicago politician named "Paddy Bauler".
Chicago Alderman Mathias "Paddy" Bauler
Paddy was a Chicago alderman from 1933 to 1967, and his most famous line that will live in the annals of defining Windy City politics was ....
"Chicago Ain't Ready for Reform"
...and how appropriate that appears to be in Sun City Anthem...after reading of this recent Board appointee.
The only way this can be viewed is a simple "slap in the face" to the person chosen to MANAGE Sun City Anthem by a "machine" that is flexing its muscle for CONTROL.
Time for a little bit of refresher from the past....especially for you newbies out there.
We actually should go back a number of years when this lady chose the pen name "Sandy Ridge" touting countess demeaning and uncalled for, rude attacks on the characters of a number of Sun City Anthem residents.
We know this because an alternative blogger "SLIPPED", printed her real name, then, after realizing what he had done, quickly removed it from his blog.
...and no matter what denials anyone might here.....a bunch of people have THE COPY before the guy removed it.
We won't embarrass her by restating those comments for several reasons.
First, they were THAT disgusting; secondly, that type of rhetoric would have resulted in getting your mouth washed out with soap as a kid; and third, that form of trash would never be permitted to remain on Anthem Opinions.
As time proceeded, she was employed by FSR, our former management company; however, prior to our transition to self-management, FSR TERMINATED HER FOR CAUSE, and was at last check, refused unemployment compensation as well. We have no idea as to whether it was ever later approved.
Would that stop this woman...or...others attempting to "influence" any formal management decision?
Of course not, that's not how "the machine system" works out here.
She would then apply to our current General Manager, Sandy Seddon, for a job !
The result...she was NOT HIRED, despite countless numbers of former FSR employees being offered employment under the new "self-management" regime.
Two other blog owners....
...one who was also constantly harassed by this same individual...
...actually used their blogs to go on a ridiculous crusade to persuade Mrs. Seddon to reconsider her position...
...acts that in our opinion, did little other than "stick their noses in matters that were none of their business", attempting to undermine the GM's decision.
It didn't work and all seemed to be forgotten....so we thought !
So what happens after two PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS come to a conclusion this individual SHOULD NOT BE EMPLOYED by either of them?
"The Machine" slaps Mrs. Seddon in the face, by...
.... appointing her to a position on a formal committee, a Lifestyle Committee having a bearing on YOUR LIFE.
Of course it was pure coincidence she has always been a staunch supporter of "machine" politics, and all of us who reside in Sun City Anthem know that "machines" take care of those who are loyal to them.
So Paddy, if you can hear me up there (or down there), your words of past wisdom ring loud in Sun City Anthem....
