Hi Michael Skelly

I wonder if Clean Line Energy ever offered to pay for the overtime police labor for their two forums at the Mendota High School last fall.  It was a great time and the City of Mendota, the high school, police, and the FFA students were gracious hosts.

The FFA students made an incredible professional image while doing whatever they could to assist in facilitating the meeting.  They were the utmost of  professionals.  If similair meeting are held in Iowa and Missouri, I strongly recommend local landowner and residents ask their FFA chapters for assistance.  

Below is an email I sent to Michael Skelly October 18th, 2013 after the first public forum.  As much money as Clean Line has thown around in merchandise and propaganda efforts, I do help Clean Line has contacted Mendota PD and offered reimbursement.


Hey Mike,

Word on the street is the Mendota Police Department paid for the overtime for the September 18th Forum at the Mendota High School out of their own budget.   I am surprised Clean Line wasn’t being charged for the officer’s overtime.   After talking to relatives in other police departments and in the suburban communities, I find it is usual and customary for the affected party to pay for any extra police at an event.

Just a suggestion, but it might be a good idea for Clean Line to get out in front of this one, call the Mendota Police and Clean Line offer to pay for the police protection for the event.  While Jimmy's act didn't play well to the Mayberry crowd and busing in a potentially rowdy crowd posed a risk of disruption, fortunately the police wasn't necessary.  It would still be a nice gesture to the community if Clean Line paid the city for additional expense. 

Below is the phone number for Mendota PD.

We all had a good time and apprecriated the opportunity for many of us to speak our minds on the matters.  I do hope your come up on the 28th.  

There is an expression up here "Will it play in Peoria", meaning sure the act is enjoyed in Chicago, but it isn't received well downstate.  Jimmy and Hans just weren't received well by the Mayberry kind of crowd.  I think you might be received better.

Thanks.

  1. THE MENDOTA POLICE HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO APPROVE RICL, SO THEREFORE, THEY DON'T GET ANY OF CLEAN LINE'S LARGESSE!
