I’m sorry in advance… I need to get some things off my chest.
I’m not a political candidate anymore. I don’t have to play nice with people anymore.
You’re damned right that I’m pissed off about what happened with The Westland Gazette — with our City Council President Pro Tem, Peter Herzberg, and I’m also pissed off that his COUSIN, State Representative Kevin Coleman, knew the situation with the Westland Gazette and said nothing.
However, that is not why I’m pissed off.
I’m pissed off about State Representative Coleman and Councilman Herzberg’s endorsement of Mr. Timothy Gilbert for a seat on the Westland City Council.
Here’s a little background on Mr. Gilbert, just in case you didn’t know. Mr. Gilbert was a Detroit Police Officer, and during his time on the force in Detroit, he and 17 other Detroit Police Officers were indicted on a host of charges… I believe the case says thirty-two counts, but I’m not an attorney to be sure…
(LET ME BE CLEAR, THEY WERE ACQUITTED… HE WAS NOT CONVICTED. But, he worked with Robocop, and we all know how that worked out…) Again, I want to be clear… they walked on these charges. I am not saying Mr. Gilbert is guilty of these crimes. I’m saying this indictment shows he’s unfit to be our next City Councilman.
Here’s a link to the case law, decide for yourselves…
Alright, so they were all acquitted of these charges. However, Mr. Timothy Gilbert was found to have committed misconduct by the Detroit Police Department and TERMINATED. Even though he was acquitted in a court of law, they said he could not be a Detroit Police Officer any longer.
Mr. Gilbert has not worked as a police officer ever again.
Here’s his own quotes on this subject, to Westland Community News in 2017:
He now runs his private investigation firm, and that is all fine and dandy, Kevin and Peter love it… it’s on his official ad, which is a work of art in itself. 😀
There’s Kevin and Peter — No problem with being on the early candidate ad there at all, huh guys? You’re both pieces of shit. You ran a good game, but good luck in this community now…
WHY IS HE BEING ENDORSED BY BOTH OF OUR POLICE ASSOCIATIONS? HE GOT FIRED AS A COP AFTER A FEDERAL INDICTMENT AND OUR COPS THINK HE’S A GOOD IDEA FOR OUR CITY?
Why is he on our TIFA Board here in Westland?
For those that are unaware, that is the Tax Increment Finance Authority. Here’s some information about this from the City of Westland website:
Tax Increment Finance Authority
The City of Westland TIFA/EDC Board is governed by a nine (9) member board appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. The purpose of the Tax Increment Finance Authority /EDC (TIFA) is to promote economic and business development through programs and public improvement projects that create economic opportunity, provide entrepreneurial support, and preserve property values. Regularly scheduled board meetings take place the second Tuesday of every other month at 8 AM at City Hall, 36300 Warren Rd. and are open to the public.
What qualifications does Mr. Gilbert have to sit on this board or to be your next CITY COUNCILMAN?
I will acknowledge his service in the Armed Forces, and I will thank him for that.
Other than that, what qualifications does he have?
This man was extremely excited and pumped up an endorsement from Bo Dietl in 2017… as in the guy who was The Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort’s PERSONAL FIXER…
When he spoke to a local media outlet with over 10,000 followers about a huge federal indictment he had dealt with — that got him fired as a police officer and having to change careers, mind you — with a photo of him, a man who I’m not sure of, and JORDAN BELFORT’S FIXER. That’s just classic Westland right there.
Make the man engage you in a debate. He can’t do it. He breaks down. Ask him if he supports President Donald Trump, and see what he tells you…
This isn’t a joke, Westland — there’s only seven people running for four seats on our City Council, and you have two choices that aren’t owned by the Mayor and their own self-interests — Mike McDermott and Mike Delph. You’ve got tough decisions, and you voted this disgrace, Mr. Timothy Gilbert, through a primary in 2017.
WAKE UP, WESTLAND.
START CARING ABOUT YOUR FUTURE.
I wanted all of this on the record in one convenient piece for all the Westland citizens to make their decisions — and this man shouldn’t get anywhere near a City Council seat.
These are my own views, from my own website, and everything here is factual and sourced to the best of my ability (obviously, he’s commented freely on the court case.) If you don’t like it and want to support Gilbert, I don’t care. If you want to say mean things, you can just go fuck yourself right now and be done with it! 😀
They are facts. Deal with them.
