Slabb-a-leaks proudly presents: My baby sent me a letter. (Alternative title: PRR? Here at Slabbed we don’t need a stinkin’ PRR)

I’ve had about 10 different inspirations for rolling out this series, each pretty good but today I favor simplicity. The long and short of it is last fall I was the recipient of a data dump that comprised certain material that went to the federal grand jury late last year.  So the story goes, which will be told in detail in subsequent posts, this material went to the federal grand jury, 4 different NOLA area media outlets plus one individual that had the $5K it took to pay for the PRR, which I estimate numbers close to 200,000 pages. I’m not sure whose copy ended up on my doorstep but there is no denying the treasure trove of info contained therein.

With the emails of Tom Capella, we find a Parish councilman that was in reality a council part timer; one who used the Parish’s email servers to conduct his private law practice in the process compromising attorney client privilege.  Capella has an in with the LSED and Convention Center folks and the taxpayers pay his freight along with CDC Clerk Dale Atkins, who evidently was too engrossed with doing Larry Roedel’s bidding to make sure the conveyance data was properly backed up.

Here at Slabbed we’re fully prepared to do battle if need be to exercise our first amendment rights with respect to the Parish Council’s emails. That said we will not be publishing anything that we feel will interfere with the ongoing grand jury investigation.

First installment: Tom Capella October 2009 partial. 924 pages of spam, public notices, email blasts from Bayou Buzz plus some good stuff.

There are no simple answers when it comes to River Birch but I’ll lend some insight as it pertains to Waste Management’s contract, in a humble attempt to give the Slabb Nation’s musings on matters of Jefferson Parish garbage some illumination as I take a stab at answering FifthCircuitJoke’s question:

“I’m still trying to figure out why the biggest Waste Haulers in the Country have all left the New Orleans Metro Area…”

I am going to tell you a story….my honest opinion that I think answers the most simple and obvious question: Why is Waste Management abandoning contractual territory it previously coveted and fought political battles over? Your query is in fact a clue to the volatile origins of ‘River Birch II’; a criminal conspiracy originated by Heebe/Ward to establish a landfill monopoly with the compliance of corrupt Elected and Appointed Jefferson Parish Officials.
