The FBI holds pursuing public corruption a high priority . Thank you US attorneys and the FBI.

Oh my this would be similar to the criminal offenses committed by City of Montrose, Ia clerk Celeste Cirinna. City of Montrose. Ia clerk Celeste Cirinna
Norfolk City Treasurer Anthony Burfoot sentenced to six years behind bars
 “When elected officials engage in corruption it erodes public confidence in our democratic system of government,” said Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.  “Burfoot’s well-publicized criminal exploits have eroded public confidence in how their tax dollars are used and managed, and his selfish actions feed the worst perceptions about public employees, of whom the vast majority perform their duties selflessly and admirably. I want to thank the Assistant United States Attorneys and the FBI for their diligence and dedication in pursuing this important case.”

 

Above the Law, victims of narcissists

A case that started with a simple nuisance drainage issue, it ended up with the neighbor using chemicals with intent to cause me serious injury. He and the local officials had no regard to the building codes or requirements pertaining to legally nonconforming property redevelopment. There was not one thing regarding this redevelopment that was compliant with the State building code or State drainage laws. When he realized he could not get his new redevelopment recorded on the county plat map he decided the remedy was to eliminate me and acquire my property. This will give you an idea of the offenses that have been committed against me. These are clear violations of Federal Law. Equal protection, private property right, the 14th amendment to name a few.

 
Are you diagnosed with any injury or condition as a result of this behavior or otherwise?
 

Yes, the skin condition that resulted in the chemical exposure is chronic, the only way I can keep it reasonably under control is by taking the medication methotrexate. Methotrexate  itself is known to cause damage to internal organs. I have to have blood drawn and tested quarterly for the amounts in my system are considered as “safe”. My body specifically my arms are covered in scars. I must avoid the sun due to the methotrexate. Initially I was required to travel to the University of Iowa hospital weekly, slowly it has now become every six months, I have an appointment tomorrow in fact. This Dr. literally saved my life. There is no other case that I can find that a person has been intentionally exposed to glyphosate ongoing for five + years. The fact that my attackers were my government officials, public servants makes this much more difficult for my to tell my story. To think that justice will ever be served seems unobtainable. I question whether glyphosate is the only chemical that was unlawfully applied to my property along the common boundary. The attacker began unlawfully applying chemicals to my property the year prior to the EPA field investigation. Only after he was elected to city council did he apply i on the city easement along lot #1 of my property. He is well connected with the local agricultural supply corp. It was only when he applied it to the city easement when a neighbor two properties down from me reported chemicals to the EPA. Where he applied it happened to be the point source of a large portion of the city’s drainage ditches. When he applied it and it rained it naturally ran downstream into a backwater slough that feeds directly into the Mississippi River. A neighbor notified the EPA when all living plant life on her property was killed by the chemicals. This man by this time had suspiciously been elected to the city council. He was misrepresenting his authority to be that of an employee of the street dept, which he had no authority nor did the city’s insurance cover him in acting as an employee of the city. I continue to suffer emotional distress, I was distraught that I had no protection of the law to file a trespassing complaint against this man. This man sued me because I (within my rights) put up a privacy curtain his case was dismissed. The judge’s order cited my “right to enjoy my property”. I felt a sense of relief believing this meant that he would not apply chemicals to my property again. I was soon after charged by the State on this man’s behalf for a misdemeanor act. The citation stated “Mark Conlee said Melody Boatner drove by his house and gave him the middle finger”. A few days later I received another citation, this one stated “Mark Conlee said Melody Boatner drove by his house and gave him the middle finger, he is tired of this continuing to happen.” The additional wording bumped the charge up to harassment. The County Attorney sent Lee County Deputy David Hunold to my house, according to Hunold, the County Attorney was concerned there may be a conflict of interest. We sat for over an hour, I showed him documented evidence that Conlee lied in court, knowingly make false statements, made false police reports and his admission in court documents that he did apply chemicals to my property. He got up to leave and I said “wait a minute, I want to file trespassing complaint against Conlee”. Deputy Hunold advised me that he was only there to investigate the complaint regarding me giving him the finger. There is no law against giving someone the finger, I admitted I did one time. That is the only interaction I ever had with this man aside from telling him years earlier not to apply anything to my property, not to enter my property. I have the date and photo evidence. Conlee violated the court order in the civil case he filed against me. He approached me, accompanied by the Chief of Police, he advised me that he was going to move the railroad ties that I had placed down the common boundary to divert the significantly increased storm water runoff from his illegal property redevelopment. I ask the Police Chief, what are you doing here? He advised me that he was acting as a witness that Conlee told me in advance that he was going to move the railroad ties. This is the same police chief that the day I told Conlee not to apply anything to my property, because I felt whatever he had been unlawfully applying was causing me medical problems. I followed up directly with the Police chief requesting an incident report. I finally received an incident report sixteen months later. By that time my body was eaten up. I was unable to function at all, to simply wear clothes was unbearable. I continue to have eruptions to my skin but is controllable with ointment provided by prescription from my dermatologist in Iowa City. I have had many incidents caused by bad interactions with medications that have been given in an attempt to offer some relief to the severe skin condition. I was overdosed on IV steroids by the Dr on duty at the Ft Madison Community Hosp. resulting in hallucinations resulting in being hospitalized in ICU for three days. There are many instances similar to what I have just explained, I have everything documented.

The problem for me to date has been the existing conflict of interest between these local officials. Anyone with the authority to protect my rights and prosecute criminal offenses have clearly conspired to cover up, violate Federal law pertaining to private property, equal protection and several of the Constitutional Amendments.  The evidence is much clearer than my ability to tell this story. Photos and court documents do not lie.  This is not supposed to happen in the USA. This is illegal, ignorance of the law is no excuse. This has never happened to another citizen.  

My father was employed as the Street Commissioner of a neighboring town. I was aware of the violations that were being committed against me as they were happening. I reported these crimes to the proper authority as they occurred. I had a successful business that I operated from this property. A home the biggest investment a person make in their lifetime. Mine was taken because my neighbor having all the right people holding the needed government position was allowed to violated all laws concerning redevelopment of legally nonconforming property. Everyone except the County Recorder, he couldn’t get past having to have this illegal redevelopment recorded on the county plat map.

Went to City Hall to get copies of building permits issued for Mark Conlee’s property redevelopment. – Poisoned By My Neighbor From Hell in Montrose, Lee County, Iowa

After being told by Mayor Dinwiddie that this was a private issue I went to City Hall. I got copies of the building permits on file for Mark Conlees new garage and his new home. This one for his new home.

In the circled area Value is handwritten $40,880 Fee $ is blank. The issue date at the top is 7-12-2004. Complainant had only noticed that this permit was invalid due to no Builders signature. Clearly Building Administrator Holland was intentionally negligent at least for his lack of oversight and pre-approval of issuance of this permit

Conflicts of Interest in Land Use Decision-Making – eXtension

Conflicts of Interest in Land Use Decision-Making

Elected and appointed officials involved in land-use decision making must not be tainted with prejudice regarding on matters that come before them. Such prejudice exists when the individual finds herself with a conflict of interest. A conflict of interest arises when a public servant is in the position of deciding between public duty and private interests. The three most common conflict of interest situations are (1) when the member is in a position to gain financially from the decision being rendered, (2) when the member is a relative of an interested party, or (3) the member is near, or next to, the property at issue.

The most obvious example of a financial conflict is when a land-use decision-maker has an ownership interest in the property that is the subject of the requested action. A review of court cases from around the country reveals numerous other possible conflict situations:

  • The decision-maker is in a business relationship with the applicant.
  • The decision-maker is employed by a company that stands to gain from approval of the development proposal.
  • The decision-maker owns property near the property in question.
  • The member owns a business that would directly compete with the applicant’s business.

The tangle of familial relationships that can potentially give rise to conflict of interest questions is equally broad:

  • The decision-maker’s spouse is the Realtor working with the landowner.
  • The decision-maker’s close relative lives near the property in question.
  • The member’s nephew is an attorney with the firm representing the applicant.

 

A decision-maker who questions whether he has a conflict of interest should ask for advice from the attorney representing his city or county. If a conflict of interest does in fact exist, the decision-maker must disqualify himself from the case. If a conflict of interest does not exist, it is the decision-maker’s duty to participate and vote, even if the situation may be uncomfortable because it involves a friend or associate.

Many communities, boards or commissions have adopted bylaws or policies that govern conflict, and some state codes require specific action to be taken where conflict of interest may exist. Care should be taken to follow any applicable standards in effect locally. While the advice to confer with legal counsel is always sound, some communities require that potential conflict of interest issues be declared and discussed at an open meeting and a vote taken to determine if an actionable conflict is present. Again, local practice should be followed when applicable. In addition, many local and national planning organizations provide models and standards for resolving conflict of interest issues.
