We received a copy of a letter signed by Interim State Elections Commission Executive Director, Eric M. Lipman outling several allegations made against Osceola School Board member Jay Wheeler. There is, in fact, an investigator assigned to Wheeler's case, and her name is Helen Hinson. Here's an email from Tom Long, who made the complaint with the State.Greetings Taxpayers,
Over the years, School Board member, Jay Wheeler and I have crossed swords.
He has consistantly overstated his position to the point of fabrication of
facts, dates and math.
Jay Wheeler and Donna Hart failed to attend the latest OCBTA Political Forum. Not a surprise and actually, neither one was missed. Those in attendance were treated to a couple of informed candidates who simply want to represent their districts.
Forum for candidates at Suhls Rodeo Grounds,1010 Suhls La. off Hoagland Blvd. just down from The Warbird Museum. School Board candidates from Dists.1 & 3 will present their views,along w/candidates for County Commission Dist 4.It starts at 6:00 p.m. and of course the public is invited to not only attend, but also ask the candidates questions.
This is usually a very informative forum and will be interesting to see if incumbant school board member and candidate, Jay Wheeler, will attend. To date, he has declined invitations to participate. Ummmmm, can you spell g-u-t-l-e-s-s ?
We found this alert of a jury duty scam that is spreading rapidly on a blog serving the Oak Park, IL and surrounding areas - http://TheSoPBox.com.
Most of us take Jury Duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty that a new and ominous kind of fraud has surfaced…
The caller claims to be a “Jury Coordinator”. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo, your identity was just stolen.
Eleven States including Oklahoma, Illinois, and Colorado have reported this insidious swindle. When someone calls and asks for information, be aware and stay safe.
Communities in Florida, New York, Minnesota, Illinois, Colorado, Oregon, California, Virginia, Oklahoma, Arizona, and New Hampshire reported scams or posted warnings or press releases on their local websites in the past and it would appear that there may be a re-emergence of this scam.
As always, please remember that you should never give your information out over the telephone, email, or text message to someone that has contacted you. Even if you have initiated the contact, be sure you know who you are giving your information to, and the reason that it is required.
As you can see from the above quote, scammers and thieves will think of creative ways to steal your identity and everyone should be wary of these vultures.
- Best Regards,
