Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim told CNN on Friday that when a new director took over at Norfolk Community Services Board recently, she was "doing her due diligence" when she discovered the hooky-playing employee was on the books. The director, Maureen Womack, then notified the city attorney's office, Fraim said.

Host: TK Kerstetter Guest: Greg Taxin, Managing Director of Spotlight Advisors, LLC Greg Taxin is no stranger to shareholder activism. He was a co-founder of the proxy advisor Glass Lewis and has participated in over 50 proxy battle scenarios during his career in asset management and investor activism. Now with Spotlight Advisors, Taxin works with both sides to enhance communication and improve the decision-making that surrounds risk and capital allocation. Avoiding Activist Attention For any company, an activist campaign can be highly disruptive. Often spanning several months, a proxy battle requires a significant time investment from both management and the board level, not to mention a significant monetary expense. Most companies will end up spending between $4 and 6 million throughout the course of a proxy battle, explains Taxin. In this episode, Taxin outlines several steps that boards can take to minimize their risk of activist attention. He explains why board composition is at the heart of the problem (and the solution), and how boards must rethink their disclosure around capital allocation, operating strategy, executive compensation alignment, and other areas of activist focus. “One of the ways activists find targets is to look at the peer companies, and they say, ‘Boy, everybody went to the left, and you guys went to the right…’ But companies often decide to take a different path for good reason. The key is to... explain why you’re choosing to do something different than everyone else, why you think it creates value or reduces risk, and why it’s the right path for this company and this set of shareholders.” Taxin’s advice provides an excellent roadmap for boards that are looking to identify potential “danger areas” and head off an activist campaign before it begins.

A woman who took video of alleged cattle abuse ended up being charged with crimes against animals herself after she gave the footage to authorities. Taylor Radig was working at a Colorado dairy farm as an undercover agent of the animal rights group Compassion over Killing. In the three months she was there, she filmed individuals using force to move the livestock around, including tugging at their ears and pulling at their tails as a way of lifting them. When Radig handed the footage over to the local sheriff's office, however, she was among those arrested and charged with a class 1 misdemeanor for cruelty. Authorities cited her failure to bring the abuse to light while it was happening as the reason for the charges. Not reporting such activity in a timely manner violates state law. Radig had waited for two months after ending her employment with the dairy farm to hand over the video. In a statement, the Sheriff said she is, thus, being viewed as a participant in the cruelty. The organization she was working for asserts her innocence, stating that witnessing abuse and partaking in it are far from the same thing. What do you think?

Now they are just outright defending criminals and trying to get effective cops off the streets. No wonder so many black areas are crime ridden cesspools. You want some truth: "They don't mention the time officer "Lean n' Mean" Greene risked his ass under fire to get a young woman who had been shot in the leg by her psycho dope-addict spick boyfriend and her son to safety. He didn't draw on that fiend, even though he COULD have. They act as if the guy is just a mad dog, capping muthafuckas left and right, but he's NOT.

We should be GRATEFUL that he WANTS to be out there doing his job, even IF it might mean him getting his hands dirty again. Its not easy for guys like that, they're HUMAN and they may develop some serious guilt-issues or PTSD, which can really shorten their shelf-life on the force. People have to understand that being a cop is a VERY dangerous and stressful job like being a soldier or hit man or a pro kickboxer or a treasure hunter, you have a VERY specialized set of skills that by its very nature makes it difficult for you to ever have a normal civilian type job, like cooking steaks or working a cash register, EVER AGAIN." - Apollon Abaddon https://www.cityofhomestead.com/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=814 Mayor Jeff Porter Presents Officer Anthony Green with Officer of the Month Award During a Special Council Presentation that took place on April 23, Officer Anthony Green of the Homestead Police Department earned the Officer of the Month award for his exemplary service in the line of duty during the month of February 2014. Major Scott Kennedy began the proceedings with some words about this special civil servant. “Officer Green has been a member of our department for 24 years ever since he first came to us as a Police Explorer back in 1990. In 1993, he was hired as a civilian dispatcher and a year later, he began his full-time employment as a full-fledged police officer. Twelve of those years, he worked in the K-9 Unit and another eight years as a field-training officer. He is a motivated, diligent officer that always has a smile to share and I’m so very proud of him.” In the month of February, Officer Green was recognized for his handling of 220 calls, 68 back-up calls to aid his fellow officers, 11 arrests and 25 police reports. Of note, was his discovery of a marijuana grow house while on routine neighborhood patrol that led to arrests and the seizure of 37 plants with an estimated street value of 98 thousand dollars. Mayor Porter also had some parting words for Officer Green. “We’ve all heard the saying ‘The Best of the Best.’ This officer embodies that sentiment. With gratitude, we thank you for your distinguished service above and beyond the call of duty.” The man is a hero, period.

CNN) -- A worker was paid for 12 years without ever showing up for work at a Norfolk, Virginia, agency funded by federal, state and local money, officials say. Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim told CNN on Friday that when a new director took over at Norfolk Community Services Board recently, she was "doing her due diligence" when she discovered the hooky-playing employee was on the books. The director, Maureen Womack, then notified the city attorney's office, Fraim said. Sandy Johnson, a spokeswoman for the Community Services Board, told CNN Friday that her agency couldn't comment because of the ongoing investigation. On behalf of the city attorney's office, Norfolk city spokeswoman Terry Bishirjian referred to a statement released on Wednesday that said, "The city attorney's office, with the approval of Womack, took appropriate steps to prevent any further payments to the employee and the employee was terminated." It added, "The city attorney has undertaken a detailed investigation of the circumstances and history of this matter to determine what further personnel actions should be taken, and the board of the NCSB passed unanimous motions supporting the executive director in any further employment actions she might take on the advice of counsel. After all necessary employment actions are taken, the city attorney will turn the matter over to Norfolk's Department of Police for further investigation." CNN affiliate WAVY said that the employee, a woman whose name was not released, "earned" somewhere between $300,000 and $480,000, not including full benefits, from the board over the past dozen years. The Norfolk board is partially funded by the Virginia state Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services. According to the department's website, it is one of 40 locally run community services boards that "serve children and adults who have -- or who are at risk of -- mental illness, serious emotional disturbance, intellectual disabilities, or substance use disorders." The mayor said state law requires cities, towns and counties throughout Virginia to host the boards, but each city has little involvement beyond providing some of the funding for the offices. "This is not a city employee. She does not work for the city, does not get a city check," Fraim said. He added that while the Norfolk City Council appoints members to the Community Services Board, the board hires its own director and is autonomous and independent. The city of Norfolk provides just under $4 million of the local board's budget a year, Fraim said. Meghan McGuire, a spokeswoman for the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, said the state pays $9.7 million annually and the federal government usually contributes $2.4 million, but this year added $190,000 in stimulus funds. Fraim expressed concerns about a lack of oversight at the agency. The Norfolk Community Services Board is a "quasi-federal, state and local agency that operates independently," he said. "No one really judges their performance, if you will. It's not a good model." McGuire said there is some state oversight. Each board is required to commission an independent annual audit, then send a copy of that audit to the state. A state auditor then looks for red flags and prioritizes the reports by risk level, she said. "Recent audits of Norfolk showed low risk and no need for our department to conduct our own audit," McGuire said. "We don't have an employee-employer relationship with them, but if we do find out about a situation or something that needs to be investigated ... we can investigate through our internal audit process." Norfolk City Councilman Barclay C. Winn commented on the situation Friday, saying, "We could have and should have done more in this case, but I think when you get an audited financial statement at the end of the year and a clean opinion, it gives you some level of comfort." He added that government at all levels, including his, needs to be held accountable. "I'm sure the mayor and city manager will get to the bottom of it, [but] the buck stops with the city council," Winn said. "If it has the word 'Norfolk' in it, it stops with us. ... That's OK. That's part of the job." McGuire said that while the state does not have authority over personnel issues, it does have authority over policy and procedure, and when the state makes recommendations for change in those areas, "If they don't make changes, we can take some action. In the worst case, we can withhold some state funds." But that withholding of cash seems unlikely in this case. McGuire said that "it appears CSB is working diligently to resolve this issue." George Pratt was the Norfolk board's executive director for 12 years, with a short gap between his and Womack's tenure. Even though his time in charge overlapped with the alleged shirker for about a decade, Pratt told CNN on Friday, "I know nothing about it. I read it in the paper."

Holly Nicholas of TheRebel.Media reports, Marlo Raynolds, former Liberal Party Candidate and insider was hired on as Chief of Staff to new Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna. And apparently he was “hand picked” by Justin Trudeau. Raynolds' previous employment as the Executive Director at the Pembina Institute, BluEarth – a wind and solar company and an active Board Member of the Canadian Wind Energy Association are all solidification of his anti-oil stance. Well, those positions on top of the oil sands moratorium, along with his activism against the Keystone XL pipeline are. But remember that time he suddenly turned pro-oil at the Airdrie all candidates debate? Why did Trudeau choose Raynolds for the position? Because Catherine McKenna is a human rights and international trade lawyer with no scientific background. But she does have the anti-Canada talking points and suggestions that Canada is an environmental laggard with no backup covered. Both McKenna and Raynolds are attending the preliminary talks in Paris for the climate change conference where McKenna is insisting that “Canada is back” and trotting out all of the climate change nonsense while she’s at it. And if you’re wondering about federal carbon taxes, the new Minister for the Environment made it clear that we’re in for one.
