Nancy Williams attends Port of Shelton meeting

Port Commissioners Jay Hupp and Tom Wallitner deigned to censure Commissioner Jack Miles during this 09-21-10 meeting for his publicly posted criticism of Lt. Governor Brad Owens on a private blog run by a local resident.  Jack did this in his private capacity while identifying himself as a Port Commissioner who had committed himself to those he served, the public that elected him.

Commissioner/Chairman Jay Hupp elected to remove that effort from the meeting agenda (impromptu sua sponte without a motion) because, he opined, there’d been too much controversy surrounding the matter on the internet.

The meeting then devolved into acrimonious debate over the inaccuracy (or lack) of meeting minutes contrary to State law requiring the same.  Commissioners Jay Hupp and Tom Wallitner continue their pattern of steamrollering and insulting/bullying/intimidation of Commissioner Jack Miles.  Later, a citizen, for the record, officially notifies the Commissioners of their potential personal liability along with the Port’s for promoting, conspiring to, or allowing chemical trespass on private properties.  Jay Hupp challenges the relevance and is told the Commissioners are being notified for the record of exceeding the scope of their office and authority by promoting unlawful acts.  Still later, a City of Shelton planner jollies up the two egregious Commissioners and Port Staff regarding a submission he’s undertaken.  Click HERE for Video of dysfunctional Port meeting proceedings.

Fran reminds the Commissioners of their duty to represent the public’s concerns and interests, which they have not done, instead electing to project a hostile attitude toward the very community they serve.

Fran Prescott originally rejected an invitation to meet and be photographed with Nancy Williams until she learned Nancy opposed the Adage and Simpson bioincinerators.  Fran then conceded she’d ‘reconsider’ her reluctance.

Video footage was taken recording the continuing dispute over the accuracy of the minutes for Port meetings, but Jack Miles was easily steamrollered by the other two commissioners, as usual.

The Port Commissioners were publicly (on the record) notified they faced personal liability along with the Port itself for exceeding their authority by encouraging a tenant (Adage) to engage in chemical trespass upon surrounding private properties.  This eliminates any potential claim of their ‘acting in good faith’ or ignorance of the consequences.   But these are wealthy men who will be able to feed a small company of lawyers in mounting a defense.  However, they will NOT be entitled to the presumption of qualified immunity when they exceed the scope/authority of their public office or conspire to harm adjacent residents, their families, their children, and their private property.

See the following links to a Washington State Supreme Court decision on the legal implications surrounding chemical trespass and a successful suit against Kitsap County for the same:

104Wn2d677 (Bradley v. American Smelting – 1985)  The Washington Supreme Court rules permits are no defense against chemical trespass and defines the law surrounding the issue rationally and without equivocation.  This has been Shepardized by yours truly, revealing it remains good law.  The decision was unanimous without dissent.

136Wn2d567 (Kitsap County v. Allstate Insurance Co. – 1998)  After Kistap County is successfully sued for chemical trespass, it squabbles with its underwriters over who is going to pay the enormous bill.
