Cam-Payne de'Pascal

Any doubt that the Almighty Mayor himself is behind the de'Pascal candidacy has all but vanished. It looks like team Marty is trying to knock off a political rival and hide his involvement by sending in Transportation Director Greg Payne to "captain" Paulette de'Pascal's District 4 pleasure cruise for councilor.

In addition, the Eyes have it that Director Payne is doing his dirty work on our dime. (Of course that's not really any different than Ms. de'Pascal running her campaign on our $35,000... but we digress.) The following email was forwarded to us and it appears to be laying down the law to "honey bee" candidate Paulette de'Pascal.

From: "Sandra P. Richardson"
Date: July 14, 2007 7:39:55 AM MDT
To: greg@gregpayne.com
Cc: "Sandra P. Richardson" Subject: Paulette, THE PLAN and the structure

While you ask for structure, you resist it like a honey bee, flitting from person to person, seeking their advice and opinion...wearing yourself and us out. Not a winning strategy in any political campaign...especially this one. Hard to be the candidate and not the consultant, isn't it?

Yesterday, I was talking with Greg. We worked out what HE needs YOU to do and I fully support because I trust Greg and know that if you follow this Plan, you WILL win. If you continue to avoid, you can cost yourself the election.

Here's the structure we're committed to:
1. Greg is THE Captain of the team. He's the ONLY person to whom you seek political advice. He's THE strategist...period. (He's "gold" for this campaign.)
a. Do NOT undermine his efforts by being a "honey bee." Frustrating for him, frustrating for me, frustrating for you.
b. Everyone else is just signature helpers...NOT strategists. If you indulge in the "honey bee," you sacrifice winning...period.
c. "Loose lips sink ships." In this case, being a "honey bee" compromises your campaign. You cannot discuss the elements with anyone else. Period. This is not a tea party, this is WAR. Period.

2. I agree with Greg. I have made a commitment to him and to you. My role is to work with Greg, find out what his game plan is for that period of time and then work with you to make sure you follow. Period.
a. If you have a concern, you tell me so that I can tell Greg. Period. No honey bee.
b. You have to follow this structure to protect Greg and me and yourself. Period.
c. Greg is held ethically to very strict guidelines...he cannot indulge your need to hear from him every day...that's why we've worked out this plan.
d. I'm your coach ,as I committed mid May!! Period. As such, you MAKE time for me, first.

3. THE PLAN-structure:
a. Greg is the only Captain of this ship. He creates the strategy. He decides.
b. I am his First Mate. I report to the Captain. YOU report to ME. Period.
c. You are the candidate. You report to me....NOT "if you get time" between all the "flowers." You MAKE time. I'm not your mother...I'm your coach. This is the PLAN. You want to win? You follow Greg's Plan. Period.
d. Caleb is the manager of compliance and your schedule. He does NOT take a trip or day off to play without checking The Book first, assuring that nothing is due. He let's me know if and when he leaves...and assures ME that nothing is due. Period. He earns the money funded by the pubic. period.
e. EVERYONE else is a helper ONLY for door-to-door.

4. . Everyone else, EVERYONE else is NOT for you to discuss any strategy...you cannot indulge or you will sink your candidacy and us along with it!
a. They help with going door to door. Period.
b. They are NOT the ones you turn to for "What should I do."
1) Tony, et al, help you by walking door to door...period. He is NOT your strategist...he works for Greg in this campaign. He is not the "go-to” guy.
2) Eddie is NOT. You do NOT discuss stuff with him. He keeps you company on the door-to-door, Talk about other stuff. "Loose lips..."
3) Not your old buddies, relatives, especially girlfriends.
4) Not other candidates. This is not 8th grade.
5). NO one, nada, nil.

5. THE PLAN-Per Greg, this is what you focus on...and only this:
a. Keep walking getting signatures...lots and lots of signatures. that’s ALL.
b. You do not need to do anything else unless it falls under "compliance."
6. Caleb, as the publically paid person, has the responsibility to organize the paperwork from the City Clerk's Office and be responsible for your compliance with the rules.
a. As promised, I will coordinate with him...not you.
b. He will inform you when and what you need to do and you will comply with whatever the paperwork says.

c. He can always check with Kelli on your behalf...you. do NOT.
d. as the paid manager, he does not take off unless he let's me know that all is okay, nothing is due. He tells me.

5. Caleb will maintain your calendar...you do NOT schedule without clearing with him...remember, "I have to check with my manager."
a. Real easy to do.
b. You cannot "try,"
c. You have to make that commitment to the campaign.
d. You make that commitment to those of us who are working (Greg, Caleb, me) for your success.
You wanted structure...I've been trying for several months to bring you structure with a little success but there's still too much frustration for all.
You owe your campaign the commitment to follow what Greg and I have the experience to know. YOU WOULD DEMAND THIS OF YOUR OWN CLIENTS!
The only way this campaign will fail is if you do not follow The Plan.. You absolutely must. Or, you're wasting your time and ours.
You have a tendency to bring this to everyone you know, get their input and cherry-pick what you think will work for you. BUT YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN THE CANDIDATE. You are not objective and the people you ask are not experts nor do they know the District 4 political scene nor will they have to "pick up the pieces" if this campaign "goes South."
No more 8th grade stuff. This is serious...for Greg, for me and for you. We all have a great deal at stake. You absolutely need to put your candidacy in Greg's hands. You have to trust him...
He's won every campaign. He's savvy and experienced and believes strongly in you...as do I. BUT, Paulette, you can be your own worse enemy. When you're unsure, you indulge in the "honey bee" syndrome, trying to get a secure feeling inside.
Campaigning takes personal discipline. Do what you do best: get signatures.. Can you imagine if you had 5,000 signatures what the impact would be on your campaign???
So, focus on just one thing: getting signatures...get to know as many constituents as you possibly can. You do this so well. Capitalize on your strength. Only you can do this part well.
Make time, first, for me to coach you on the background for issues that you will need at debate and forum time.
I expect your compliance to Greg's plan. Greg expects your compliance to his Plan.
Starting now...
As you can see, the $35,000 de'Pascal pleasure cruise has already sprung a serious leak and the "First Mate" is clearly irked with passenger de'Pascal for her lack of discipline. More telling is that "Captain" Payne is clearly setting the course; a course that meets with the approval of the 11th floor.

The "Captain" denied his involvement in the de'Pascal candidacy just today (ABQ Journal - Subscription) saying that he had been approached but he didn't have the "time or energy to get involved." Ms. de'Pascal claims that Payne "is not affiliated with my campaign in any way." Rrrrriiight.

Mayoral involvement in a campaign is nothing new, particularly when knocking-off a rival and replacing them with a handpicked successor; one that will help you advance your own agenda (pandas, trolleys, arenas, red light scam-eras, the take-over of APS, etc.).

Transit Director Payne is known for running effective and particularly brutal campaigns, traditionally for Republicans. Our Eyes tell us that he's managed to alienate a large number of the party faithful over the years, so registering with the Party of Marty comes as no surprise.

However, the involvement of a top Chavez administration official that makes over $100,000 a year of taxpayer money looks pretty bad. Payne has every right to work on any campaign he chooses on his own time, but his denials of involvement in the de'Pascal effort ring hollow in light of the above "honey bee" email. Further, Mr. Payne either needs to be up front about his (and the mayor's) involvement and do it above board, or he needs to disassociate himself from the campaign and prove that he's done so.

Nice snag on getting a copy of that email Mr. Eye. That's pretty good material. Given the tone, I wouldn't be surprised if Ms. de'Pascal leaked it to you. I would not want anyone talking to me like that if I were running for office.

Damn that was easy. Brad Winter has already won his seat without spending a dime. Way to go Payne. No wonder your ass got run from the state job. You are damn lucky Marty gave you a job that you are not qualified for or have any creditials to hold. I hear you throw a mean coke can at officers though. The State Fair is right around the corner.

oh crap, I think I just remembered who richardson is, isnt she the nut that payne had to get restraining orders on to keep her from stalking her famil?? If so (and court records will prove it ) this is about to turn into a big non-story guys

I think Sandra Richardson is the wife of a guy who serves on the Albuquerque ethics board. Apparently he's a Marty appointee. Boy - don't they look ethical??? The sad thing for Sandra is that Marty and Greg will probably throw her under the bus and say she's crazy...even though the email shows pretty clear that she was just trying to help them do their dirty work.

Dear Mr. Eye - thank you for covering this stuff. Where the hell is the Albuquerque Journal?

Sandra is president of the Cherry Hills Neighborhood Association. She also appears to be on the METROPOLITAN PARKS & RECREATION ADVISORY BOARD
http://www.cabq.gov/parks/pdf/FebruaryMinutes.pdf
Per this document, a Cliff Richardson was also in attendance at the February meeting. Don't know about Albuquerque Ethics Board, except that it sounds like an oxymoron.
Sandra was also present at the red-light camera Town Hall meeting where she spoke in favor of the cameras. Seems to be a Marty minion.
Can't wait until de'Pascal's campaigners come around looking for signatures, maybe I'll have stopped laughing by then, but probably not.

Sandra Richardson and Greg Payne. Two of the most complete incompetents of all time. I can't believe these two represent ANYTHING let alone neighborhood leadership or a Directorship position of this City.
Your liberal agenda and your Nazi mannerism is true to form for the cause of Marty & Company. Greg Pain, as a so called Republican, ought to be taken to the 'Wood shed' by his party and excommunicate him from our values and agenda. What a disgrace you both are to the community and this city.

Tom said...

All this Payne/Marty involvement (especially since it was Marty supporters who did those ads on the budget) is a little scary if you stop and think about it. If Payne WAS running the show, and he's so smart, why would he let his candidate waste all those precious tax dollars on computers and such? She's only going to get that one lump of money. and they didn't care about blowing it right away on wasted crap. I think she knew that some group - maybe like that budget group - was going to dump a bunch of MARTY MONEY into the district to beat up Winter. That's why she doesn't care about wasting the money. And that's why she didn't care that she had a CAPTAIN and a FIRST MATE who treat her like that.

She's for sale...

5 comments up. Yes you can contact the Portland Police Department for a complete transcript of his imoral filthy deeds. The cost is about 30 bucks.
And he wants to run for Mayor.
Never aplogizing to the APD for his drunken coke can incident, he is not in good graces with the rank and file. Furthermore it was an ex APD captain who got him off the hook that night. That Captain now sits (unapposed) on the City Council representing District 8, who's Neighborhood association coalition is run by yet another loser and cohort of sandra Richardson.

Anonymous said...

last post -- absolutely right and by the way remember how Payne went on and on about how evil the cops were and how the one he threw the can at abused his rights -- until he heard the tape of the incident played. It took the tape surfacing before he could admit he was wrong -- then he went to "re-hab" . ALso the cop that busted him and caught his evil tirade on tape was later hosed by Schultz at every turn - that cop was T.Sholtis and he was a very skilled and honest officer who had to leave the department to make some real money for his family -- and he is currently teaching in a hot zone in another part of the world

Years ago, while in the military I knew a guy from Louisiana. He was very prejudice towards Blacks and Jews. I asked him why. His response was "I don't know. My daddy was and his daddy was, that's why"
Sandra Richardson's hatred for Brad Winter parallels the same ignorant thought process. Her answer would be "I dunno, I guess because Marty does, and Greg Painess does. What an ignoramous.
Oh, and let's not forget that they owe Marty a debt of graditude for her husband's appointment to the Ethics Board. Greg has turned his back on his Party and is kissing the feet of the emperor, for the same reason. Otherwiswe he'd be out in the street with the homeless looking person, Sandra Richardson, and soon to be Paulette
de'Pascale.
Get rid of these people; There nothing, nobodies

Sholtis,and Tanuez were both out there and they said payne was a super jerk..Its to bad they did not lock him up. They were both also disciplined more than anyone else after the incident. That Capt should be ashamed of himself. Typical of the command not to stick up for his officers. By the way, EX-CAPT LOY is Chief Schultz's BEST FRIEND and their little click of minions runs just about every morning up here in the far NE. It looks like a heard of ducks all following their mother, Schultz. It's embarrassing to watch them. Guess What, I think they were all promoted by him. What a surprize!

who the hell is this witch sandra? is that how consultants talk and handle candidates? last time i checked the consultants are there to help, support, encourage, advise the candidate not dictate and be tyrannical in communication style.

how did that email get leaked? i'd be embarassed if i was the candidate. i'd even be more embarasshed if i were payne and richardson. fire them!

I see all this harping on Public Financing. Little has been said about the candidates who are receiving thousands of dollars from Real Estate Developers. The whole purpose of Public Financing is to even out the playing field between the large contributors (often developers in the case of City Council) and the individual voter. A purpose of Public Financing is to make the candidates accountable to all the voters instead of people donating large chunks of money from special interests.

"Anonymous," you post at all hours of the day. Don't you have a life other than spending your time spewing hatred behind a computer screen?

Anonymous said...

Once again dumb ass, Public Financing does not even out any playing field. In fact you don't have to show who's giving you money. Dah!! What is it that you don't get. These people will certainly be able to take 'on the side' donations without anyone ever knowing about it. DO YOU NOT THINK THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN? Grow up, get in the real world. If anything, Public Campaign Financing only breeds more corruption. Get a brain. (They're on sale at Wal-Mart for $50 if you live in Albuquerque)If you live ouside of the metro area, you will need the upgraded version to keep up with more intelligent life forms. Only $25 more.

Sandra Richardson took advantage of a desperate woman who had no business entering politics. Have you read the woman's blog? She knows absolutely nothing. She can't even put a correct sentence together. Richardson brainwashed and browbeat this woman. Richardson and her boss Marty have used and abused someone to further their own political gains and their own self-serving interests. They are not public servants, rather self-servants. I hope her constituents scream for her resignation of any board she serves on and Marty gets voted down the toilet where he belongs.

The Journal and the Trib have a political agenda. That is why they won't report on the corruption and incompetence in the leadership of the APS.

There is a privileged class and they take care of each and pull the strings we all dance too.

Not a one of them is honestly accountable to any meaningful standard of conduct.

They are privileged because they are powerful. They are powerful because they have usurped control over our considerable power.

We regain control over our power by instituting transparent accountability over the administration of public power and resources.

We do that by getting enough people to show up at a school board meeting, a city council meeting, or at a county commission meeting; that we can demand that they pass meaningful reform while we are standing there.

We do that by realizing that we are all pissed off about the same fundamental issue; we have lost control over power and resources that are fundamentally our own.

We do that by working together.

But I don't know how to get that to happen.

So I will go to board meetings relatively alone.

Others, will go to city council meetings relatively alone.

And others will go to county commission meetings relatively alone.

There to get their asses handed to them by board members, councilors, commissioner, and their lawyers; paid for by us.

P.S. The only thing that you know for sure is that you can believe in neither the Journal, nor the Trib.

They are the privileged class;
