Unethical Part Two

I asked the Town of Fishers to provide copies of contracts and payments to the CPA firm that works for the Treasurers Office. Of course I couldn't get the complete data I asked for. How come can't the Clerk Treasurer provide the totals she paid out for the company that does the work for her.But here is what the Town provided.

Clifton Gunderson LLP in 2008 was paid $105185.75
In 2009 they were paid $190006.75
For both 2010 and 2011 the Town did not provide this data. If I had time I would take all the payments that are presented to the Town Council and add up how much they paid. Of course they could have done in a few minutes with their computer system. If elected it will be presented to the public in Jan 2012.

Mr. Walter Kelly who is a principal of this company made a $5,000 donation to the Future of Fishers PAC. This PAC made donations of $17,017.00 to the incumbent Clerk Treasurer, funny how this money goes in a complete circle.

Unethical you bet

The Town of Fishers Clerk Treasurer via The Future of Fishers Political Action Committee received a contribution of $12,000.00 but if you study the PAC you will find that Mr. Walter Kelly contributed $5,000 to this PAC. Why is this significant because Mr. Kelly is a principle in an Accounting firm that does the work for Ms. Cordell's office. In speaking to a few retired CPAs in the area they all recommended hiring a new CPA firm as they find this highly unethical. Any CPA firm should be at an arms length from the client. One of the retired CPAs said I should, if elected, form an Advisory group for the Clerk Treasurer's Office of retired CPAs and if possible ones who have moved to Fishers from other areas. Great idea and if elected it will happen.

999 is truly 666 for most of us

Mr. Herman Cain’s tax proposal is simple and for once I agree with Michele Bachmann, the devil is in the details. Here are some details from the Tax Policy Center.

Income Average Tax Change
Less than $10,000 Up $ 1,122.00
$10,000 to $20,000 Up $ 2,705.00
$20,000 to $30,000 Up $ 3,833.00
$30,000 to $40,000 Up $4,196.00
$40,000 to $50,000 Up $4,399.00
$50,000 to $75,000 Up $4,326.00
$75,000 to $100,000 Up $4,368.00
$100,000 to $200,000 Up $2,105.00
$200,000 to $500,000 Down $11,155.00
$500,000 t0 $1 million Down $ 59,489.00
Above $1 million Down $ 455,247.00

I think it is time for Mr. Cain to return to the world of Pizza and forget politics.

Change or no Change that is the vote

The Clerk Treasurer of Fishers, IN has a sign on the door to her office and I quote "This office does not make change. If you are paying with cash please have the exact amount.
..................Thank you." Also this is very professionally posted in a plastic 3 ring binder holder. To be fair they will take checks. But that is it, checks or exact change. As you can see the Clerk Treasurer is a very consumer friendly office. Up to date in their methods of operation.

In my run for this office I have stated that "If elected we will allow the citizens of Fishers the ability to pay on line, use credit or debit cards, checks, money orders, wire transfers and if they bring cash we will make change if needed." I am sorry but we will not accept live stock for payment.

So it comes down to this, keep the 30 year incumbent in office and keep the 30 year old methods of operation or vote for Joe Weingarten and modernize the office and increase consumer operations as well as efficiencies of the office.

After 30 years it is time for a change. Vote for Joe Weingarten.
