Peterson gives Minority Businesses the shaft, lies about minority contract awards

Hat Tip to Indiana Minority Report. Below we've copied their column today.

EXAMPLES OF EXTREME GREED IN PETERSON ADMINISTRATION:

Shrewsberry & Asscociates
Well lets look at Deputy Mayor, I mean Bill Shrewsberry. Without an environmentalnor engineering degree, Shrewsberry left his position with Mayor Bart Peterson and the same year, viola, he owned an Environmental Engineering company, Shrewsberry & Associates, and immediately received HUGE public contracts as an mbe!

Guess who sits on Shrewsberry’s advisory board?
Rep. Bill Crawford, Rep. Carolene Mays, & Cripe (majority company) in this partnership

Center Township Investment
The investors in the ghetto messy 300 East Tavern. If you recall, greedy wealthy blacks and crooked black politicans took over a wing in the publicly owned Julia Carson building in violation of dozens of codes. They, occupied the space for months without rental payment nor a lease, destroyed a neighborhood park for valet parking for their mercedes and bmw's. They put in a bar with many chairs for drunk patrons to sit and buy alcoholic drinks before getting into their valet parked cars and driving drunk through our residential neighborhoods, risking our childrens lives.

But, for the Center Township Investment groups investors, Joyce Rogers, President of Indiana Black Expo, William Mays, Monore Gray's wifes, Lacy Johnson and Alex D. Oak, of Cripe Architects & Engineers*, and the other "silent partners" having their drunk patrons run over black children forced to play in the street now that the park is gone, leaving their skulls cracked and brains splattered all over street from their drunk patrons is not important. Afterall, black on black crime is acceptable in black Indianapolis and if you've got the juice, use it. You certainly won't hear about it in the Indianapolis Recorder, since they don't report the same old bad news like you hear everywhere else. Particularly if the bad news mentions crooked black legislators or the owner and publisher of the Indianapolis Recorder. Despite protests from neighbors and remonostrators, the Center Township Investment group intimidated neighbors and high-jacked the neighborhood association in the same fashion taught them by their leaders, Aaron Haith. They deceived, lied and manipulated the entire the project through--all with the rubber stamp of Bart Peterson's administration. The investors in this group lack dignity and morals, and for those who hid behind the notoriously greedy, selfish Bill Mays -- No courage.

Further insulting the residents in center township, in September Mayor Bart Peterson's rubber stamp awarded Center Township Investments with an mbe certification.

*Cripe hired Julia Carson's grandson, Aaron Carson, immediately after he was selected for the city-county council.

Mid-Region Concrete
City-County Council President Monroe Gray's phoney mbe construction company certified by Bart Peterson in 2004 has left a trail of debt in its short two year life span that is currently close to a million dollars and the tally is not closed yet. Of course, he did not disclose any of his contracts until the public complained and he was forced to disclose. Gray did not pay employees, had his equipment repossessed, and when caught by the public he committed "juice abuse" by voting to break the tie on his own ethics investigation.

Robin Winston, an unscrupuous political hack who once advised me to "stay away from Senator Howard and other black people. Be around white people only, it's not good to be around black people--your career will go further if you avoid black." I wonder how old Winston was when he "discovered" white people. Ironically, despite his dislike for black people, he is no stranger to eating from the mbe/wbe trough and acts as a "broker" to mbe/wbe contracts. Winston recently sent out a letter attempting to bribe funds from mbe/wbe’s for Monroe Gray’s fundraiser.

Monroe Gray must be a little short on funds since his scam/front mbe firm, Mid-Region Concrete received a $600,000 judgment. This company has contracted with IPS, Veolia Water and the Airport. How could Bart Peterson not know this was happening?

Printing Partners
City-County Councilor Jackie Nytes, who is fleeing for higher ground to the library board. Nytes, my own city-county counselor, took advantage of the city contracting for her business, Printing Partners, yet failed to ensure that her very own minority and women constituents participated in contracting and allowed the other 20% left on the table to reverts back to majority companies, a category which includes her company, Printing Partners; despite the existence of wbe/mbe printing companies who recieved very little if any contracts with the city and the fact that the city is only at 1-2% towards it goals of 15/8%/.

City Council member, Cherish Pryor
Hasn't Pryor been on the Bart Petersons payroll for several years? Why did she recieve a city contract in 2006. Why is Bart Peterson refusing to release the mbe/wbe reports for the balance of 2005, all of 2006 and 2007?


MAYOR BART PETERSON FAKES DIVERSITY INITIATIVES
AND
ALLOWS HIS GREEDY FRIENDS TO STEAL
WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY BELONGS TO MINORITY & WOMEN OWNED BUSINESSES

PETERSON WON'T HELP MINORITIES,
IT WILL NEVER STOP!

LET'S HELP OURSELVES!
VOTE AGAINST MAYOR BART PETERSON!

Thank God neither HFFT or IMR fall under Dennis Ryerson's regime. If you did, you would face the same punishment as RiShawn Biddle and be banned and shunned. Or Amos Brown would throw a fit.

The day they call Melyssa or any of the HFFT activists racist is the very day they will have a holy war unleashed...run by Melyssa's many African American long time friends.

Amos and company are the racists in this city. Most whites want blacks to be prosperous, afterall isn't a prosperous citizenry good for all?

Don't we ALL win when we ALL win?
