Is this the City of Charlestown's foundation or is it Bob Hall's private foundation? City Attorney Mike Gillenwater was paid $1,076,00 for preparing paperwork for the education foundation. He was also paid for a $750.00 for a fee to the I.R.S. to get the 501C Foundation certified. Maybe Mayor Hall or his Attorney Mike Gillenwater or the Redevelopment Commission could enlighten us. Come on David Flowe,John Spencer,or Steve Allen let the citizens of Charlestown know if the C.E.E.F. is Bob Hall's private foundation or if it is the City of Charlestown's foundation. If the city has nothing to do with the foundation then there is a chance that the Redevelopment Commission and Bob Hall have broken the law and used city monies to help subsidize the expense of a private foundation.

If this is an education foundation, why could it not be handled through the existing GCCS Education Foundation?

No money can be spent without a vote by the board.

Board is made up of Mayor, Principal of High School, Principal of Middle School and both Elementary Principles.
Not a penny should be spent without a vote by the board.
Follow the Money.

My topic is intended to answer the question if the C.E.E.F is Bob Hall's private foundation or if it is the City of Charlestown's ? The Board of the C.E.E.F. has nothing to do with my question.

Sleepy,again my question has not changed, is the foundation private or is it ran by the city? The board ( appointed by Bob Hall ) has nothing to do with my question.

It is "private" Mr. Hall created this foundation based on private donations. The money distribution is "voted " on, by the existing board, at the close direction and recommendations of Mr. Hall.

That's correct, Pirate1. It should also be noted that Hall appoints the three-member majority of his board. The board exists only to provide a smidgen of respectability.
It's also true that Hall used city funds to establish the foundation. He did that thru the Redevelopment Commission, which he also controls with his three appointments. In this case, he didn't even both to get their approval. He just did it.

Pirate 1, if in fact you are correct and the C.E.E.F. is private then the Mayor and Attorney Mike Gillenwater have conspired to use tax-payers monies for a private foundation. Mayor Hall,stated at a Redevelopment Commission meeting that Attorney Gillenwater needed to be paid $1,076.00 for preparing paperwork to start the C.E.E.F. Gillenwater according to Mayor Hall was to be repaid $750.00 for a I.R.S. filing fee he paid to get the 501C foundation certified. If the above statements are indeed true, then the proper authorities need to be notified and an Audit of all of Bob Hall's terms in office needs to be done. Charlestown this may very well be just the Tip of the Iceberg, when it comes to Above the Law Bob Hall !! If proven to be true, Voting for a Liar is Bad Enough, but please Charlestown Voters don't be deceived into Voting for a Liar and a THIEF!!!!
