Many have been curious about the Whitespace project in Thurman and rightly so. If you read this post to the end you will finally have the information you’ve been waiting to hear for years.
Please find below an excerpt from the transcript of the Supreme Court case initiated by the former town supervisor against the contractor who designed and built the Whitespace network.
Please find a link to the illegal Emergency meeting below. The reason it was illegal is because all board members were not present; JohnYoungblood was absent rendering this board meeting and any action taken null and void, which the former town supervisor and board members knew going into the meeting.
The description of the Law concerning Emergency meetings can be found below.
Not only does this show it was an illegal meeting but the former boards incompetence.
Thurman Town Board Emergency Meeting May 2 2016
Please find below a section of Town Law Manual page 35 describing business conducted at a Special Meeting and the requirements “as long as all concilmembers had actual notice of the meeting, attended and participated.”
The former board authorized the action, Councilman Eddy voted “No”, for litigation against Mr. Engelmann as regards a public safety emergency.
On pages 12 through 14 you will find where the former supervisor gave false information, under oath, regarding subscribers switching their telephone system over to this (Whitespace) system.
The testimony given by the former supervisor was not true.
A search of Verizon phone directory and 411 delivered contrary results as all whitespace subscribers have the same phone numbers they had prior to being connected to whitespace.
A current petition supported by whitespace subscribers to have Verizon fix the antiquated phone lines in Thurman futher supports whitespace subscribers have not switched their telephone network.
