11/08/13 : Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Menominee offered Oneida inducements to support Kenosha casino

The Oneida tribe will collect at least $3 million annually in banking fees and has the “right of first refusal” to finance the first phase of a Menominee casino in Kenosha in exchange for its support of the project, according to the newly released agreement.

In addition, the Menominee [Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin / MITW] is promising not to advertise the Kenosha casino, which it hopes to build with Hard Rock International, north of Milwaukee. That promise is intended to protect the market for the Oneida tribe’s casino near Green Bay. The Oneida casino is in the middle of a $27.9 million expansion.

The Oct. 17 agreement was posted on OneidaEye.com, a small website maintained by Leah Sue Dodge, a member of the Oneida tribe and critic of the tribe’s leadership. As a tribal member, Dodge said, she obtained a copy of the agreement from the tribal secretary’s office.

The Oneida [Business Committee] announced its endorsement of the controversial Kenosha casino project on Oct. 17, the same day it signed its agreement with the Menominee. Details of the agreement were kept confidential initially.

Winning the Oneida endorsement was vital to the Menominee because Gov. Scott Walker has repeatedly said he would approve an off-reservation casino in Kenosha only if each of the state’s other 10 tribes also agreed to the project. Walker has unilateral veto power over the off-reservation casino, which the federal government approved in August.

Dodge, who disclosed the agreement, was critical of the Oneida for even considering participating in the loan arrangement, saying the tribe doesn’t have the funds to do so. “The elders are very concerned about this,” she said.

11/20/13 : AUDIO – November 30, 2013 ONWI Legislative Operating Committee Meeting

Fmr. OBC Member Vince DelaRosa said problems with the Tribal Audit Committee have resulted in the Tribe…

slowly spiraling out of control.

DelaRosa outlined the need for the Audit Committee’s independence from the BC, as well as the need for meaningful accountability – including for Tribal corporations – when misconduct or negligence negatively impacts the Tribe.

Vince DelaRosa noted that the OBC failed to establish a whistleblower’s law to protect conscientious members & employees who report mismanagement or misconduct and said:

We are in bad shape when it comes to audit work. We do as best we can as an Audit Committee, but if you knew, if you only knew what was going on underneath the surface here, as Tribal members you would be horrified. I’m promising you that.

[T]he Audit Committee should be able to report to General Tribal Council. At some point when this all blows up we’re going to wonder what happened, and then the audits will show certain things year after year, seven years – seven years – in some cases of people just failing to respond to audit work, and they’re still employed here! Or we show up on audit sites and tons of paperwork is missing. Do we find this acceptable as Tribal members? …

Right now, with the lack of control environments, we believe – based on the Candela advisory – y’know, it could be $20-to-40 million that is loose, not tied down properly. But we go to audit and there’s paperwork missing, we can never prove a case, can’t take anyone to trial, can’t prosecute anyone, and then this just goes on and on and on.

Fmr. OBC Member David ‘Fleet’ Jordan summed it up another way:

Such a lack of ethics in this entire organization.

McMinnville-based Evergreen International Airlines took a large step toward dissolving itself Tuesday by filing a Chapter 7 petition in federal bankruptcy court in Delaware. The filing followed by about two weeks an involuntary petition by a group of creditors.

The filing estimated the total assets of the Evergreen companies at up to $100 million and total debts up to $500 million. Evergreen said it has up to 5,000 creditors. The filing includes a 108-page list of creditors. Among them are founder Delford Smith and the non-profit Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum.

A former Evergreen employee relayed a Dec. 31 email from Evergreen’s director of human relations that noted that a trustee will handle all human relations and public relations functions. The director, Monique Gregory, did not identify a trustee and the bankruptcy file lists no information beyond the company’s voluntary petition. 

Gregory’s email read:

To: all employees

Unfortunately, there is NO Cobra options available.  Please visit www.coveroregon.com or the website that is specific to your state health insurance.  This will give you options for health coverage.

The 401k is managed by Heintzberger / Payne and you may reach them at …

Evergreen officials and lawyers did not respond to phone and email queries on the holiday. Evergreen’s website still contains a Nov. 8 note from founder Smith that insisted the company would continue to serve its customers. He said much the same in an interview with The Oregonian less than two weeks ago.

The bankruptcy filing lists seven entities as submitting the Chapter 7 petition: Evergreen Aviation Ground Logistics Enterprise; Evergreen Defense and Security Services; Evergreen International Airlines; Evergreen International Aviation; Evergreen Systems Logistics; Evergreen Trade; and Supertanker Services.

The filing appears to mark the end for a proud company with a history of providing cargo and passenger services to the U.S. government and other customers. Smith founded the company as Evergreen Helicopters in 1960. Last year,Evergreen sold the helicopter company to Portland’s Erickson Air-Crane for $250 million in cash and notes. Smith said later that money would be used to pay down debt.

Still unsettled is the fate of Evergreen’s non-profit affiliates, theEvergreen Aviation and Space Museum and the Wings and Waves Waterpark. The buildings are landmarks along Oregon Highway 18 on the eastern edge of McMinnville. The state Department of Justice has been investigating whether Evergreen’s for-profit operations improperly commingled funds with the non-profits.

01/18/14 : Milwaukee Journal SentinelGreen energy plan raises red flags in City of Adams; Controversy centers on charges of conflict of interest involving mayor, by Lee Bergquist & Thomas Content

The City of Adams in central Wisconsin is making a big push into green energy, but questions are being raised about whether the gambit will heap too much risk on taxpayers.

The controversy centers on charges of conflict of interest involving the mayor and details of the deal in which the city — with a population of just under 2,000 — gives big incentives to a company that says it will build a world headquarters and manufacturing plant in a local industrial park.

Adams’ mayor, JanAlyn Baumgartner, now works for the company, GEITS Corp., which has U.S. offices in Madison and lists other offices in Italy, Australia and Singapore. The city has also given GEITS office space in Adams City Hall.

One critic of the project estimates the city’s commitment will cost $22 million over the next 25 years.

City officials dispute this. With a local economy that has struggled with high unemployment, they defended their incentive package, which includes giving away industrial land and making a $1 million investment in a plan to turn garbage into electricity.

To date, Adams officials say they have spent more than $900,000 on wind-powered streetlights and wastewater treatment equipment from GEITS, even though the wastewater upgrades haven’t been reviewed by state regulators and might not be necessary.

Officials said last week that they are looking for more money, because other attempts to obtain state and federal funding for the wastewater project haven’t succeeded.

Last month, the state Board of Commissioners of Public Lands denied Adams a $2 million loan, marking the first time in nine years that Executive Director Tia Nelson declined to forward an application to her board for review, according to documents.

“Based on the representations we have received to date, and the facts staff has uncovered over the course of more than 3 & 1/2 months and 7 different loan applications, it appears to me that the community would be unable to obtain the additional financing necessary to complete the project as described,” Nelson wrote her board.

Adams’ foray into green power comes as cities are starting to look more seriously at renewable energy. Milwaukee has a single wind turbine on Lake Michigan. It’s also one of 25 cities aggressively pushing development of solar energy, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Last week, Milwaukee County Board ChairwomanMarina Dimitrijevic said county officials should study installing solar modules at Mitchell International Airport.

In Adams, opposition surfaced as the deal on green power emerged.

Attorney Dennis M. McFarlin, who also serves as commissioner of Adams County Family Court, was asked by citizens to analyze the deal with GEITS. He concluded the value of expenditures and donated land could cost the city up to $22 million over the next 25 years. The outlay includes monthly lease payments of nearly $45,000 by the city to GEITS for infrastructure upgrades for lighting.

It raises a
very dark
red flag
,”
McFarlin said.

City Expects Many Jobs

City Administrator Bob Ellisor took issue with that assessment.

More significant, however, Ellisor said is the city’s belief that GEITS will invest $100 million in Adams, including a hotel and education center. The company will create 200 jobs and provide a spinoff employment of an additional 500 or so jobs, according Ellisor.

“It’s a huge deal, conservatively estimated at taxable value of $70 million,” he said, adding that the increased tax base would be sufficient to pay city obligations.

GEITS stands for Global Environmental Infrastructure Technology Solutions, and according to its website, it specializes in renewable power generation, waste management, water management and urban renewal.

In an email, spokesman Tim Roby said the company has 10 employees in Madison and 50 consultants around the globe.

The company and the city began meeting last year after another idea the company was discussing with representatives of Adams County went nowhere. That plan called for GEITS to build large floating solar panels on Petenwell Lake, a flowage of the Wisconsin River.

On May 14, [2014] Adams and GEITS signed an agreement that a public finance consultant, Ehlers Inc. of Brookfield, described as a partnership in a report to the city.

The agreement committed the city to buying $2.9 million — later reduced to $2 millionin equipment for the city’s wastewater treatment plant and $91,800 in streetlights powered by wind or solar energy. The city says that the streetlights will be powered by “vertical wind turbine electric generating units,” a city document shows.

Under the agreement, the city also gave the company 66 acres of industrial land at two different sites for $2 that GEITS is using as collateral.

The deal also calls for a $1 million payment to GEITS to help fund a new enterprise, described in documents as a “waste-to-energy facility.” The $47 million project would take garbage from Adams and other communities — 48,000 tons annually — and turn the waste into electricity.

The city also would invest $4 million from tax incremental financing from the value of the waste energy business. Because of the commitments, the city says a downtown revitalization program has been suspended.

Baumgartner, the city’s mayor, joined GEITS as vice president of public policy and government relations in late November.

Baumgartner’s job at GEITS has come under fire in the community, and one member of the city council who voted in favor of the project says he is having second thoughts as details of the GEITS partnership emerge.

Roger Marti, who is serving his second term on the council, said he asked the mayor to resign after she joined the company.

The mayor declined and produced a document from an attorney hired by the city who says the arrangement is legal if Baumgartner agrees to stay out of deliberations involving her new employer.

Baumgartner said she is earning less than in her previous 26-year career helping women in shelters for Family Center Inc. of Wisconsin Rapids. She said she has not attended some city council committee meetings when issues with GEITS come up and has left one council meeting.

“It really means a lot to me to get this community going somewhere,” she said last week.

But Marti and others said the appearance of the mayor going to work for company in which the city has made a large financial commitment doesn’t look good.

“I don’t think it’s right that she is doing this,” Marti said last week.

“We now have a mayor who is working both sides of a contract, and that bothers me.”

Tania Bonnett, the Adams County district attorney, said she has been asked to look into the matter involving the mayor’s dual role, but her review is still preliminary.

Baumgartner and Ellisor tout the deal with GEITS as a “game changer” for an economically struggling city. The latest jobless figures for Adams County puts the unemployment rate at 9.1% in November — sixth highest in the state.

“Isn’t this the brass ring that every community goes through?” Ellisor said. “Let’s get a manufacturing facility in here — a clean operating firm that creates all of these jobs and creates a brighter future for the next generation.

“That’s exactly the background of this entire arrangement.”

The chief attraction to the city: GEITS’ plans to construct a headquarters and manufacturing plants in Adams’ vacant industrial park.

Among other products, the company would build floating solar panels, vertical wind turbines and proprietary equipment to remove phosphorus at wastewater treatment plants, Ellisor said. GEITS would use Adams as a model for the company’s capabilities with its streetlights, wastewater treatment and other projects.

As opposition surfaced, the city released its own three-page report touting the benefits of the deal.

“As the model for other communities, the city would be the demonstration case for how the waste-to-energy plant, vertical wind turbines and floating solar units can be integrated into and support the small urban community…,” the report said. “The jobs created as a result won’t be shipped overseas because the shipping label on the package will read, ‘Made in Adams.'”

‘The Smell Test’

Among the skeptics is Jim Gately, a retired lawyer who lives in Adams County.

“There’s a lot of things that don’t pass the smell test,” Gately said. “If they can do what they say they can do, God bless them; Adams County needs it.

“But I don’t want to see the city of Adams taken for a ride and become the first city in Wisconsin to file for bankruptcy.”

In his analysis for opponents, attorney McFarlin said the city’s contract with the GEITS revealed numerous deficiencies, including a failure to seek other bids for wastewater equipment and to obtain a performance bond to ensure the work will be completed.

When Julie Giese, a loan specialist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development program, was told at a meeting last year there would be no competitive bidding for the wastewater project, she said that alone disqualified the project from being considered for funding.

“Everything was real secret,” Giese said. “They provided no documents. I asked for copies of plans, or information on the technology, and the contract — and I’ve got nothing.”

Ehlers, a firm hired by the city to assess the implications of the project, warned in a letter that the city needed to take steps to minimize risk to taxpayers. It also suggested that Adams officials review GEITS’ corporate financial statements and financial commitments it’s received for the project.

Even though the city has already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on upgrades to the treatment plant, the Department of Natural Resources hasn’t reviewed a proposal and must do so before it can be used, said Mike Vollrath, a basin supervisor for the agency in west-central Wisconsin.

Vollrath said an equipment purchase might not be necessary to meet new phosphorus-reduction regulations because there are other alternatives, including better management of storm water.

When the commissioners of public lands denied Adams its loan request, officials expressed frustration.

“It has been a challenging process for BCPL (Board of Commissioners of Public Lands) because over the last several months, somany assertions (by the city and GEITS) have been made that were subsequently changed, proved unverifiable, or have been found to be false,” Nelson, the commission’s executive director, wrote Ellisor.

Among the concerns she raised:

 • Baumgartner’s dual role as mayor and GEITS employee.

 • Adams’ inability to detail how much the wastewater system will cost.

 • The issue that GEITS technology has not been deployed elsewhere in the United States.

Several renewable energy consultants expressed concerns about the commercial readiness of some technologies slated for Adams. For example, the wind turbines have not proved to be efficient.

“Just call me skeptical,” said Carl Siegrist, a renewable energy consultant in the Milwaukee area.

“And the reason is there are so many field-tested, field-proven technologies that can generate renewable energy. It’s beyond me as to why anyone would want to be a beta tester of a new technology.

“Respondent Patricia Ann Hilliard in court. Attorney Todd R McEldowney in court for Petitioner Wallace James Hilliard. Court attempts to contact Mr. Hilliard in Nassau, Bahamas, but he was unavailable at 9:25 a.m. Court hears statements from Ms. Hilliard regarding distributions she indicates have been received by Mr. Hilliard from Hilliard Limited Partnership, which totaled in excess of $40,000 as of June 21, 2013, the most recent information available to the wife. Wife also indicates that husband offered to pay the $2000 for her to fly to the Bahamas. Court indicates that Wife needs legal counsel. Wife indicates that Attorney Garbowicz is willing to represent her, needs $2000 retainer. Attorney McEldowney argues that Mr. Hilliard does not control the money, he can only request it from the [Hilliard Limited] Partnership, but the decisions are made by his son-in-law, and it was they who would have paid for the airfare for Mrs. Hilliard. Court orders Ms. Hilliard to deposit $2000 to Attorney Garbowicz’s trust accout by week’s end. Ms. Hilliard also indicates her power is about to be turned off, and court further requires Ms. Hilliard to bring Ms. Hilliard’s WPS account current before her service is discontinued. Court advised parties that another temporary hearing can be schedule if necessary prior to the final hearing if the pressing matters cannot be resolved in the meantime. Court asks Mr. McEldowney to draft.”

06/30/14 : According to the Court Record of Events, Oneida Co. Case No. 13FA85, DIVORCE in re: the marriage of Wallace James Hilliard and Patricia Ann Hilliard:

Petitioner Wallace James Hilliard in court with attorney Todd R McEldowney. Respondent Patricia Ann Hilliard in court with attorney Steven C Garbowicz. Mr. Garbowicz alleges that Mr. Hillard has received money from his interest in Hillard Limited Partnership. Alleges that his client is working 3 part-time jobs and needs a vehicle. The parties only have one vehicle and Mr. Hilliard has arranged for Mrs. Hillard to use a borrowed 2008 Ford Taurus. Court orders that Ms. Hillard shall use the borrowed vehicle and if that cannot be utilized for any reason, she shall be provided with an operational vehicle. The court orders that Mr. McEldowney shall provide to the court and Attorney Garbowicz, within 48 hours, an explanation of the Hilliard Limited [Patnership] financial documents that list certain partnership draws as of 12-31-2013. As the financial information is very incomplete at this point, the court cannot make any orders regarding the finances of the parties. Attorney McEldowney states that the Social Security payments of Mr. Hillard have been seized by the IRS and that he has been notified that his pension payments will be likewise seized. Once the financial information has been further investigated by counsel, either party may request a further hearing on these issues. Attorney Garbowicz will draft an order regarding the decisions made at today’s hearing.

03/28/15 : March 28, 2015 GENERAL TRIBAL COUNCIL SPECIAL MEETING re: Petition for a Requiring a Permanent SEOTS Polling Site for All ONWI Elections

Following a presentation to General Tribal Council by petition organizer LEAH SUE DODGE regarding the OBC’s arbitrary, capricious, and politically-motivated inclusion / exclusion of the Milwaukee-area Southeast Oneida Tribe Services [SEOTS] facility, despite the OBC’s own OBC Resolution 03-13/02-O, which says:

The Oneida Constitution reflects an intent to promote the widest possible participation of Oneida people in their governance, and…the use of [the SEOTS] polling site is likely to increase participation in tribal elections[.]

…and reminding GTC of the ongoing history of skullduggery & r@tckufing by Oneida Election Board Chair Racquel ‘Rocky’ Hill and other OEB members to disenfranchise voters by publishing false election dates & wrong addresses for polling places in ONWI notices & the Kalihwisaks newspaper in order to favor certain candidates…

the General Tribal Council of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin voted at the March 28, 2015 GTC Meeting to require the OBC & OEB to include the Milwaukee-based Southeastern Oneida Tribal Services (SEOTS) polling site in all future Tribal elections.

The hand-counted vote to include SEOTS in all future OTIW elections was 926 in support, 58 opposed.

Among the 58 disenfranchisement supporters & anti-democratic losers were these Oneida Business Committee members:

  • OBC Member Brandon Stevens
  • OBC Member Ronald ‘Tehassi’ Hill Jr.
  • OBC Member Jenny Webster
  • OBC Member Fawn Billie
  • OBC Secretary Lisa Summers – who was spotted crying after GTC voted to put an end to just one aspect of the OBC’s & OEB’s intentional disenfranchisement of Oneidas, among their other various intentional violations of the Indian Civil Rights Act.
