On May 17, 2011 City Commissioner Bill Ganz at 2:45:16 into the meeting(as indicated on the Commission video) in reading the email that he initially indicated showed support for sexual predators, demonstrated that the City was being asked to include an appeals process to the ordinance to review special circumstances cases that may arise from the ordinance. At the 2:45:40 mark he indicates "the problem with that is that the ordinance was written SPECIFICALLY, not including any other criminal activity, but sexual predators and sex offenders. If you understood the ordinance, then you can't support it. in my opinion, that was my point."
Well, folks here is the excerpt of the ordinance as it is written. After reading it you tell me who is right, me or Bill Ganz and his best boy pal Chaz Stevens.
(c) The city hereby adopts the standards of the National Recreation and Park Association Recommended Guidelines for Credentialing Volunteers. The following are the criteria for the exclusion of adult volunteers including, but not limited to, managers, coaches or any other volunteer who has direct contact with youth sports participants. An adult means any person 18 years of age or older. Any adult volunteer shall be disqualified from participating as a volunteer of a youth sports organization if the person has been found guilty of any one of the crimes set forth below. "Guilty" means that a person was
found guilty following a trial, entered a guilty plea, entered a no contest plea
accompanied by a finding of guilt regardless of whether there was an adjudication of guilt or a withholding of guilt.
(1) All sex offenses regardless of the amount of time since the offense (examples include child molestation, rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, sodomy, prostitution, solicitation, indecent exposure or similar offenses).2
Deleted portions struck through; added portions underlined
(2) All felony offenses involving violence regardless of the amount of time since the offense (examples include murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault, kidnapping, robbery, aggravated burglary).
(3) All felony offenses other than violence or sex offenses within the past ten
years (examples include drug offenses, theft, embezzlement, fraud, child
(4) All misdemeanor violence offenses within the past seven years (examples
include simple assault, battery, domestic violence, hit and run).
(5) Two misdemeanor drug or alcohol offenses within the past ten years
(examples include driving under the influence, simple drug possession, drunk
and disorderly conduct, public intoxication, possession of drug paraphernalia).
(6) Any other misdemeanor within the past five years that would be considered an initial danger to children or is directly to the functions of that volunteer
(examples include contributing to the delinquency of a minor, providing
alcohol to a minor, theft - if the volunteer is to handle money).
(d) Any adult volunteer who has been charged with any of the disqualifying offenses above with cases pending court shall not be permitted to volunteer until the official adjudication of the case.
Ok, so does this look like it was "specifically and only written to exclude sexual offenders?"
Chaz Stevens has indicated that I am somehow trying to "besmirch" his name in attempt to over shadow the legal problems of Sylvia Poitier. I haven't talked about Chaz Stevens for over a month while Sylvia Poitier is going through her due process of the law. So, once again you look ridiculous. The fact that (if it is a fact) that any news outlet knows about your past and would insist on you being involved with them...is getting to whole world of possible trouble reminiscent of Bill Kamal, Michael Koolick, Jennifer Howe, Rob Schmitt, Derek Haywood, Jeffrey Wainsier, Russell Rhodes and a host of other notable South Floridians.
So, yes you are right consider the source.
Chaz Stevens, a guy who initially went so far as to insinuate that I poisoned his dog and then he has spent every waking moment since May 17, 2011 calling me a pedophile lover, pedophile supporter, NAMBLI President, and most recently stating that I am pro-pedophile. (Who's stalking who???) Oh, this is also the guy when he doesn't want you to read his blog will dig and find your IP address and re-route it to website (lemonparty.org) where it is pictured three old men performing fellatio on each other. JUST SICK!!! My personal favorite is his GO "F" Yourself Website...Brilliant, Chaz, Brilliant!
Me, the guy who is fighting to make sure that his community has a seat at the proverbial "table" and who has done nothing but post the truth as found in Palm Beach County Courthouse's public records documents. The guy who could care less about the media attention that could be derived from this and only cares about the protection and well-being of his community and defending it against attacks from those who would see it burned to the ground and a new crop of young families moved in.
This is not a "besmirch-ing" campaign! To "besmirch" would indicate that your reputation was "good" or "clean". What you and your City Commissioner buddy, Bill Ganz, has done is besmirch mine and now people in the public have begun to believe it and personally attack me. It's okay because I expect it from people like Bill Ganz and Chaz Stevens.
Well, who is putting up smoke screens now. The fact remains that I am not and have never been a pedophile, pedophile supporter, or whatever else and I have never been accused of such, until Bill Ganz, Deerfield Beach City Commissioner, stated that I supported sexual offenders for not supporting the above ordinance. As he so confidently stated that it was specifically written to protect the kids against sexual predators and nothing else. Well, look at it! The proof is in the proverbial pudding...
On that note, Jeff Sayles stated that I should not call Bill Ganz a douchebag and that I was wrong for doing so. However, I have yet to see Jeff Sayles state that Bill Ganz was wrong for doing what he did and that was calling anyone (namely me) who didn't support his ordinance a supporter of sexual offenders.
So, to Jeff I say thank you for showing me what kind of person you truly are. You and Chaz have more in common than obviously you will admit. But I see it! You just hide behind that imperfect wall of your perceived superiority, that you have tried so hard to build and maintain. Well, the cracks are showing, buddy.
