Perspectives - Recent Davenport Events

A quick post this morning, and more later today.

First, the fuss over the cameras should be minimized. A court challenge was always in the cards as well as an appeal to the State Supreme Court. Hopefully the alderman will allow this to proceed. Davenport was the first city in Iowa to take this issue on, and four other cities have since followed. Somewhat like Des Moines IMPACT Fee issue, the State Courts need to rule on this. And I wager the legislature as well.

Illustrating my theory no one person is irreplaceable, Dan Huber leaving Davenport One is a loss and yet a great opportunity for Davenport. Dan is an extremely talented individual, who has had job offers from other very large chambers over the last few years. But like many who work every day to make Davenport know, it’s a lot of heavy lifting. The change will be best for his family and ultimately the D1 organization.

Go Mike Loos, go.

Congrats Larry Minard, Roxanna Moritz and Chris Gallin. As well as Chairman Hancock! It will be very interesting to see Moritz rock the boat. Too bad the county doesn’t televise its meetings.

If Mike Loos is successful in suing Steen and LaHood, maybe he can start up the NEO office again. This city looks like hell.

As a resident of SOLO, I can tell you that this area of town looks far worse now then it did under Loos. It is filled with garbage - it is all over the place. When one complains, nothing much happens.

It's silly to call D1 a "chamber of commerce." It is, technically, but they've long ignored their responsibility to advocate for the main street businesses in favor of the big-time developers and land owners. The business climate in Davenport sucks unless you're looking for a handout to open something downtown. D1 and Mr. Huber are a big part of the reason why...

I have lived in Solo for years and I can tell you first hand, things are starting to look much better under the fire department then they ever looked under NEO.

"First of all, Mr. Loos was a public official. The First Amendment requires that a defamation plaintiff prove actual malice or reckless disregard of the truth when the plaintiff is a public official or public figure. New York Times v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964). This is a much higher burden of proof for a public figure plaintiff. Instead of showing objectively that a "reasonable person" knew or should have known the defamatory statement was false, a public figure plaintiff must prove the intent of the defendant was malicious, or that they acted with reckless disregard for the truth. This allows the defendant to prove its good faith intent and efforts as a defense. Now, in the case of Mr. Loos, it was established that he in fact accepted work from Mr. LaHood and did not pay for it. Mr. Steen asked that the council look into the forgiveness of liens to see if Mr. Loos was trying to get away with forgiving them instead of paying Mr. LaHood. Mr. LaHood thought, all along, that the liens should be forgiven anyway, since that was in line with the policy of the office. What was not propper was Mr. Loos possibly thinking he could get out of paying his bills because Mr. LaHood's leins were forgiven. Mr. Steen asked that this matter be looked into. So, where is the malicious intent? Secondly, Mr. Loos did in fact resign, rather then fight to save his reputation. If he were innocent, why did he resign? According to the City, it was NOT a forced resignation.

Loos was not a public official. He was an employee of the city. I think that public ofrficial term is for politicians, etc. Also, lien foregiveness was not part of this case. It was inspection passing.. Lien foregiveness is voted on by council actually, not left to the discretion of the staff.

I think that council actually forgave some for this slumlord if I recall correctly.. Lubell probably told them to for LaHood.

Someone needs to look into Jamie Howards relationship with LAHOOD by the way. You will be surprised at what you find. She should be worried.

The Environmental Inspections should be taken away from the Fire Department as soon as possible. The lady who answers the phone to take the complaints has an attitude problem. After talking with her, I will never attempt to turn in a complaint again. She needs to find a different line of work where she doesn't have to deal with the public.

 
At January 04, 2007 7:09 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

For 1:23 pm,... no the term public official is definately applicalbe to Lose! He is very much that type of person. He was a department head, he negotiated policy, he reported publicly to the council and even appeared on behalf of the inspection department on all three major television stations. That was in addition to the paper. So, none of what we are talking about would apply to him anyway. And, even if he were not a public official (which he is), this still would not rise to the level of slander due to the fact that Loos was the one that made the decision to forgive the lines and he put it in writing!
This dog don't hunt!

Anyway - I agree with the guy who is reporting the lady from the Fire Department. She IS rude. It is apparent that she HATES her job and is the most rud employee at the city. She is completely not motivated to help the public with the serious problems we have and was so very rude when I called. With her in charge of the complaints, we are screwed.

You're not a wet blanket Dan, you're just a worped frustrated "little person" who will go down with your fellow slumlords like LaHood and Steen.
To refute your squabble left on every blog relating to this matter; yes Steen and LaHood both made direct accusations that Loos forgave fees in return for work. They did not merely suggest council should look into it. Trust me on this one, I've seen the tape (yes, the good guys have a copy). Secondly, there is a DCI report that exist which states that there is no evidence of a contractual agreement between Loos and LaHood. LaHood can't produce anything, Loos can't produce anything contrary to LaHood, save the fact that LaHood himself never did any of the work as he claims (go back to the tape). LaHood admits never presenting a bill to Loos. Why would he since he was not hired to do the work? Soto never completed the work, and never returned to finish it. I don't know too many contractors that get paid for doing less than half the work. I can go on and on about the facts which all lean to Loos' triumph over this obvious set-up, but I don't want to spoil the surprise for everyone.
Good-luck in your next venture Dan, we know it won't be here in Davenport with your reputation going by the wayside with your buddies. Unless you're smart enough to separate yourself from them ASAP. Of course you are, you always think of Dan first.
Bye, Bye.

 
At January 05, 2007 2:19 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

The poster at 7:17 pm got it right. This is not Dan, but thanks for the compliment. Yes, the DCI report exists and I believe it recommended action against Mr. Loos. Mr. Loos has admitted the work was done by Mr. LaHood's employees for him. Mr. LaHood has stated a verbal contract for this work existed, and he even directly asked Mr. Loos about payment, and Mr. Loos said he would "take care of it". So, let me ask you, why would Mr. LaHood pay his help to work on Mr. Loos' home? Obviously because he expected Mr. Loos to do the honorable thing and pay his bill. Mr. Loos was suppossed to do his own finish work, so Mr. LaHood's company did their part.
Secondly, Mr. Steen asked the council to look into things, he did not make direct accusations. As you have correctly stated, this is all on tape, so the truth will come out! The part that you continue to ignore is even more damning. Even if everything you said were proven to be true, Mr. Loos still could not prevail because he is a public figure.

So now its a public figure. Before it was a public official. You can't even keep yourself straight, which lends to your lack of credibility, along with your lack of expertise. It only leaves you with an opinion, and we all know what they say about opinions...they're like @$$holes, everybodies got one.
The fact remains, Loos forgave penalty fees for several landlords, not just LaHood. And the bulk of the fees waived for LaHood came well before any work was done on his house. Regardless, LaHood was not involved in any of the work done on Loos' home, in any capacity. Oh, and by the way, DCI does not give recommendations to prosecutors about a case, they just do the investigating. Again, more signs of your opinion rather than any credible facts.

 
At January 05, 2007 6:52 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'd put Loos' credibility against LaHood's anyday. Look at LaHood's past dealings with the city and any other ventures he done. Dirty, dirty, dirty!

 
At January 06, 2007 2:54 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I would not stack Mr. Loos' credibility against Mr. LaHood. Mr. Loos would lose. Perhaps neither are angels, but Mr. LaHood's past is ten years old. Mr. Loos quit his job and refused to take a lie detector test just last year. Mr. LaHood was the person that negotiated with Mr. Loos to do the work on his home, and he paid his employees to do so, even though Mr. Loos never paid Mr. LaHood for his work. Mr. Steen said that he believed that Mr. Loos thought that he did not have to pay for work done on his home due to his forgiving liens. It makes sense, because Mr. Loose thought he did not have to pay. That is not slander and even if it were, the U.S. Supreme Court says it does not apply to public figures OR public officials....New York Times v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964).
If Mr. Loos were smart, he would drop his lawsuit now, before it costs him lots of money and embarrasement.

The law does not allow a person to blatantly lie about someone else like this and damage their reputation. Period. The QCRPA is just dirty - EVERYONE - but them knows. It is a well known fact and they are slowly losing and they hate it.

The QCRPA is actually like 5 slumlords. Unfortunately the DAI group run by Bill Boom has allowed them to infiltrate. It is such a surprise to find out that Bill Boom has allowed infamous slumlords to help him and his group propose the new rental/NEO plan. What was Bill thinking? Obvioulsy not about getting elected to city council. I hope all the Loos durt leaks so Bill can see what the true colors of the QCRPA are. He has alligned with the wrong folks, he should have closed him mouth and opened his ears and helped the neighborhood people instead of what he percieved to be his own interests. What a shame and waste of a good guy. Another one bites the QCRPA dust!

Sweet dreams.

I agree poster - the hatred for these guys runs far and wide. Atleast someone you know (if you are at all involved in anything in Davenprot) has been touched by Lubell or the others. They start out all nicey nicey and then they badger you and then when you don't "help" them, they turn to lying about your and using things against you by miscontruing and manipulation. They cannot be trusted and it is about time that someone took every ounce of power away from them. No one has the balls at city hall to do this. Malin is the worst at it, be is a sucker for Lubell. One wonders why he allows these antics. I question his leadership. I also wish that Boom and Carnahan would kick these jokers out of the DAi process, it loses any ounce of credibility is has with these jokers on the committee. What a shame. Even if a good plan is developed, there will always be issues just because the QCRPA was involved.

I thought I was going to drop a duece in my drawers when I heard professor Bildo Lynn at the council meeting this week say that he has been driving down the alleys in his ward and they have never been cleaner for as long as he can remember. Talk about trying to cover your ass! Drive anywhere south of Locust St. and you will see the neighborhood so choked with junk vehicles and debris you can barely drive down them.
Dee is requesting two inspectors to deal with the problem, but there is no way that two people will make a dent with this mess. With the old NEO department, while an inspector was making a rental inspection, he would address debris and vehicles at the same time. Now we will have police tagging vehicles (in their spare time), a couple of Public Works employees writing up debris problems and the Firemen inspectors doing rental inspections. Brillant Bildo! What a waste of time, manpower and tax dollars. The old system was very effective and after we vote out the QCRPA loving City Fathers at the next election, I'm sure we will see a return to sanity and fiscal responsibility.
Go Wally go.

Bill Lynn adn Ambrose created a HUGE mess for us SOLO. Ironic considering that much of Lynn's ward is SOLO. HE obviously is in the pocket of the QCRPA and has made a bad decision to support them over the citizens. Him and Boom.

Speaking of SLUMLORDS - Mr. Washington is crying racism to protect the criminal and nuisance behaviors of his tenants. Way to go - we al pay his salary as a parole officer. He should be fired. Mr. Washington is a scam.

If I were a person of color I would be just as offended as the rest of us with this one. Just because a person is balck doens't mean they should be allowed to deal drugs, throw garbage, assault neighbors and threaten people. Shame on you Mr. Washington and the 7th Juducial District.

Alderman Meyer: Dee said at the committee meeting that she makes the environmental inspectors drive all the way out to public works to stuff their envelopes. On her chat, it looked like 99.9 % of all their work was in the downtown area. Why not either have them print at City Hall or the Police Station, and have the VIP's volunteers stuff and stamp them. That would keep them another hour per day out on the street doing the job they are being paid to do - and that's inspect. Also at budget time, could you please Fund prescription glasses for the Councilmen? Ambrose can't see trash on the bridge, and now Linn can't see any trash in the alley's.

This 'renegoiation' of the Whitty/Freighthouse contract is starting to smell just like when Kevin Kraus wanted to 'renegoiate' the lease on the baseball stadium. Everytime Davenport does this, taxpayers end up on the short end of the stick. In the real world, if a business wants out of the contract, they pay a premium to do so, then the next contract signed with the next tenant is a better one than the first one signed. If we only had a City Legal Department that could could write a contract that actually protected the taxpayers.

No kidding. If we took the time to review the bad moves by the Legal Department then perhaps we will see how much they need to be replaced.

The Malin Contract

The Ballteam contract.

The IOC contract.

The SPEED cameras - a big one.

I have a suggestion for Keith Meyer. This upcomming cycle Davenport is going to reorganize the NEO duties. My suggestion is, that instead of calling different places, such as to the fire department for inspections, and only getting a recorder or people with an attitude, or to the police department for abandoned cars, and to public works for trash within 4 feet of anything, couldn't ALL CALLS be handled by the nice people who take complaints at public works, and then they foreward them to whoever is responsible? It's so hard to keep track of who to call when, especially when things are always changing. Keep programs simple. One call to One number. Now that's simple. Something that everyone could remember. Thank you.

Man, what a bunch of crap(ers).

Here's a quick lesson in the truth:

Most landlords are crap;
Qcrapers like mike and tony and dan fund and influence a couple of aldermen in d'puke(davenport).

The city administration is ineffective and all of them are afraid of losing all of their wonderful perks (400 dollar car allowances and now 100 dollar "cell phone allowances") in addition to huge benifits and salaries, and won't stand up to even the most outragious of lying scumb, for fear of getting bad press or their worst nightmare, getting lowered and involved in the "fray".

Most of the department head level management is so out of touch that they assume everyone is guilty and will do anything to prevent any splash of the shit hitting the fan from hitting them. Great leadership! No wonder low paid clerks are a little testy on the phone when dealing with the scum of the earth who lie, lie, lie and lie to get their way or save a nickle.

Turds that get elected with special interest money are too stupid (note: not ignorant just stupid) to realize that they set the rules, the workers operate under the conditions set by these $hittycouncil members.

So if they don't like the rules because of their PAC group funding $$$$$$$ then CHANGE THE ORDINANCE AND ACT LIKE A MAN OR WOMAN for a change, and enough with the backstabbing, slandering, character assinations and demonizing of hard working individuals.

And speaking of truth, the bloggers here from the QCRPA, you guys and your poitical hacks need to know that the truth is that you and your political cronies are on the way out and will pay for the damage you caused.

Then, in the next sentence, he says "enough with the backstabbing, slandering, character assinations and demonizing".

You are sadly mistaken if you think that Wally Skorvonski (sp?; sorry Wally) is the only QCRPA hater. All I here since Loos filed his lawsuit is how everyone out there, including many, many landlords hope Loos will bring you guys down. It's too bad you have to bring the good landlords of the QCRPA down with you. Wally may be more vocal then most, but he certainly is not he only poster giving his view on this blog.
I would like to refute your opinion of Loos being a public official. You mention that he negotiated policy, spoke at Council meetings and represented the City in the media. I am familiar with City politics, and while this is true, these items do not make a public employee a public figure in the sense of the law. Loos did not dictate policy, he only formulated opinion for the council to consider in their policy making. He spoke to council as a representative of his department, but only when required to by council. And lastly, I recall when he spoke to the media concerning the transfer of the NEO positions to the Fire Dept. he was told by your council member that he was not in a position to question council decisions. This I think proves that he was just an employee obeying orders and doing his job.

Which attorney at Lane + Waterman is handling the case? Is the QCRPA paying the legal fees, or are the individuals responsible for their own fees? Hopefully Davenport taxpayers arn't somehow picking up the tab. The city does use Lane + Waterman on some occassions. Wouldn't that be a conflict of interest?

Wally, we know you are the author of the last several posts, but just saying something is true does not make it so. And, re-check your facts. Mike Loos was indeed a public figure, the very day he decided to interject himself into the public media. In addition, he did attempt to set policy on more than one occassion. Speaking of losing popularity contests, you would be ill advised to run for the 5th ward. Word is that you are not such a popular guy yourself.

in regards to tomorrow nights meeting:

Roll Call:
"Calling all former NEO staff and supporters that want to fight to reinstate our inspectors, This city looks like shit and we can change that with your support. I know that this city can turn around if the city council would quit playing politics and let these men do the job they were hired to do. Between Freeze, Ryan, and Loos. they could build us one hell of a inspection department and I know they wont take any shit from these bad landlords. They strive to make this city a better place. Loos was making great changes to the NEO with the neighborhood sweeps and I wish they would continue,I know he was harder on landlords ,and maybe thats what we needed was someone like that because it was working! My neighborhood was looking better. So I say if you want a better neighborhood and people that really do care about this city, then show up at all 3 of these meetings and give your ideas on impovements."

It is obvious that the Fire Department doesn't want to do the inspections, so the funding should be taken from them, and put together the old NEO team again.

Dab, I know you don't live in Davenport - but I do, and I tell you forst hand that the city needs the NEO back.

Dan, Mike or Toby whoever,

I think the poster you are refering to was really talking about the image you have projected during your reign in the Qcrapers and did not state that all landlords are like you. How's it feel being on the recieving end of what you call "unsubstantiated accusations" as you put it? Although, I think when it comes to you it wouldn't be hard to show.

Judging by your post you, like all bullies, cry like a girl when you get slapped in the face by the innocent you target. I say you deserve it and it's a good thing...and,

Long Live Wally, whoever the heck that is! But if he's against you and lynn then I would vote for him in a heartbeat.
