Snowgates; Conference call transcript

I received this document today. It is a full transcript of a conference call between the SOS’s office and the city of SF (City attorney and city clerk) (full document here): petition-trans

I cropped the full document to Question #6 and made a graphic, I found this one interesting. Still do not know what to think? As I understand it, the city could take NO action, but since a special election opportunity presents itself, they would look pretty self-serving and foolish not to join the school board election. But hey, who knows what the current elected officials will do, afterall, they fired the best damn city employee they have ever had recently.

A little birdie told me today that the mayor was not to happy this transcript landed on Detroit’s porch. Not sure if this is true, but this birdie told me that Mike felt this transcript was ‘confidential’ and not for public viewing. Here’s deal, when 3 public officials like a city clerk, a city attorney and a SOS employee have a teleconference to talk shop and a transcript is made from the conference, it is VERY MUCH public information. In fact this transcript should be on the city website. Anytime public officials are talking about OUR business, like elections, it automatically becomes public information. Who pays these 3 individuals? We do. Who paid for the transcript? We did. What were they talking about? A public election and a very public petition drive. Kinda sounds like public info to me. And for clarification, I did not get this transcript from a public employee or an elected official. I am however, of the understanding that it was sent to the city councilors, so maybe one of them leaked it.

I will also say that Stehly has made a concerted effort to not keep secrets about this petition drive, even though as a private citizen, she does have that right. She has sent me updates almost daily of counts and convos she has had. BTW, we are ‘officially’ at 7,300 signatures, but Stehly feels this number is a bit skewed because she has no idea how many more signatures are floating out there that other volunteers have collected. In fact, she has handed out many petition sheets to strangers who have asked for them and she has gotten several sheets mailed to her from people she does not know. Another reason why it is important to hand in as many as possible. We are also going to high-speed scan ALL of the sheets before we turn them in so that we have another hard copy and a digital copy of them. This is important so that we can combat any discrepencies the city may say we have.

My understanding is the city will dispute the total counts via the Excel Spreadsheet method but because Theresa has the backup copies these will be able to dispute the city’s estimates.

An actual audit can be accomplished if necessary to tell SubPrime what is what.
