"According to Serco's information, Pico works for the Space and C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) business unit of Serco based out of Colorado Springs supporting the US military. The fleet management business unit is completely different and is based out of Reston, Virginia. So it would be unlikely that Pico had anything to do with getting Serco this contract. "
Correct. I have had no involvement at all with this contract in any way and have consistently recused myself from any and all discussions or actions involving Serco and the city.
Contracting for services is entirely within the Mayor's responsibility. The Council has nothing to do with contracting.
Jim, I think you need to read my comment again.
I certainly have no doubts about the disastrous course the country is on and the entirely bad and unnecessary effect the proposed rules would have. What I said was that I am unsure if those rules will actually be implemented, what they will require, and on what schedule. If you or anyone else has some great insight on those ?, I'd be very interested to know.
Shouldn't that be "Pray" and not "Prey"?
I find it surprising that Former Councilman Guman would engage in such an exercise of circular illogic and insinuation as he sternly lectures that not only should I do what I have already done, but I should do what I have already done.
Of all people, he should know that what is required is I recuse myself from everything to do with this contract. I have done that already, months ago. I have had no involvement with this contract on either the city side, utilities or from within Serco. I am not contracting with the city.
That is what is required - recusal.
I have and will continue to comply with all required actions in accordance with all laws, codes and ordinances.
An open comment to my friend and opponent, the Rev. David Moore.
I am willing to accept your clear and unambiguous statement that neither you nor anyone else in your campaign had anything to do with the phone attacks on my character nor have any knowledge of who is behind them.
If you are willing to stop "stepping aside" while someone else does the dirty work for you smearing my character and to finally "step up" and clearly condemn these attacks, I am more than willing to accept in advance your statement that you, nor any member of your staff, had anything to do with these or any knowledge of who does.
Those are the standards for "leadership", "integrity" and "honesty" that I have adhered to throughout my career. If you are willing to demonstrate by your actions that you are adhering to that same standard, I am willing to accept that, no further questions asked.
Along the same lines, I also condemn those attacks that question whether you are a Pastor or not. Neither I nor anyone associated with my campaign has, to my knowledge, made any such baseless assertion.
Let us both put this behind us, bury the hatchet (in the skull of the nearest 527 troll) and move on to our respective, positive campaigns.
