Copy of letter sent to MTP Trustees

Dear Village Board,

I wish you a happy and enjoyable Thanksgiving.

That said, I have some very serious concerns about the investigation
into the Complaint filed by Kelly Gallaher against South Shore Fire
Chief Robert Stedman.

The full text of Kelly's complaint is available here:
It is my opinion that the actual investigation which looked at the
"Let's Make A Better Mount Pleasant" website, interviewed Kelly and
Robert, and searched Robert's E-Mails did not address any of the
substance of the Complaint, but it certainly guaranteed an acquittal.

There is a tremendous amount of evidence that someone inside Mount
Pleasant Village Hall - or perhaps someone(S) is/are the Author.

Serious admissions of circumstantial evidence – admissible in court –
have been made by several MTP Officials, especially Trustee Anna Marie
Clausen who promoted “Let’s Make A Better Mount Pleasant” on her
Facebook page and stated “I don’t know who specifically does this but
it is someone in DeGroot’s camp.” Just by coincidence, Village
President David DeGroot, Trustee Anna Marie Clausen, and Fire Chief
Robert Stedman have been seen together having breakfast at Castlewood
Resturant together on numerous occasions – which links in well with
Trustee Anna Marie Clausen promoting the website and claiming that the
author is someone in DeGroot’s camp.

While a .php error on the WordPress account revealed the creator to be
fchief1951. Robert Stedman admits to using fchief for a user name in
multiple accounts and was born in 1951.

Posts on “Let’s Make A Better Mount Pleasant” contain specific
information which would only be known to a small circle of Village
public employees and elected officials, including that of Jerry Garski
and Cindy Sherman. Cindy was politically active in Mount Pleasant
during an election campaign for Jerry Garski. In 2015, Cindy moved to

Instead of a serious and comprehensive investigation, Village
President David DeGroot and his Gang of Trustees forced taxpayers to
pay for some Kabuki Theatre which took 6 months to look at the website
“Let’s Make A Better Mount Pleasant”, interview Kelly Gallaher and
Robert Stedman, and search Robert Stedman’s E-mails. This is nothing
less than an orchestrated cover-up which failed to address any of the
serious allegations, facts and substance contained in the complaint.

From the investigation:

“Even if it could be established that Chief Stedman is the
creator/administrator of the website, there is no evidence that he
engaged in the alleged conduct while at work or on village time, or
that he was speaking in his capacity as fire chief,” Hubacher said.
“It’s not apparent from the posts that anyone who’s a village employee
was posting on the website.”

That is the great unknown - who was doing what and when, and in what
capacity. That is still yet to be determined. The E-mails of Robert
Stedman are irrelevant.

More thoughts at: need Honest, Open and Transparent government.

Thank you for your time.
Tim & Cindy

What a dishonest little Village Mount UnPleasant is!

Residents are subject to one beat down after another - and Village President David DeGoof treats them with disdain and abuse - see -
