Murray: Carney Failed In Dealing With Pandemic

Above Average Deaths And Record Unemployment Due To His Policies

John Carney admits that he acted based upon fear in dealing with the pandemic and look at the result." “Our death toll is above the national average with 689 deaths through his bungling. ”

— Julianne Murray

SEAFORD, DE, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, Republican gubernatorial nominee, Julianne Murray said that John Carney had failed with his policies in dealing with pandemic.

The American Legislative Exchange Council has recently issued a report on state governments handing the pandemic. Under John Carney’s leadership, Delaware was ranked 46th in the nation in handling CARES money that is essential to small businesses and individuals. This mishandling of the CARES money comes at a time when nearly 30% of all Delaware small businesses have either temporarily or permanently closed due to Carney’s failed COVID policies.

The Council also stated, “the Governor has overseen the 14th largest increase in state unemployment as well as above average cases and death rates per million residents.” This was a shattering indictment of Carney’s handling of COVID – 19. Carney, himself admitted in the University of Delaware debate this month “most of the decisions early on were based on public health guidance and fear frankly, we didn’t know exactly what to do, as we shut down businesses, issued stay at home orders”

“John Carney admits that he acted based upon fear in dealing with the pandemic and look at the result,” said Julianne Murray. “Our death toll is above the national average with 689 deaths through his bungling.

“His fear in dealing with COVID – 19 has devastated the Delaware economy,” continued Murray. “Longtime family businesses are shut down. Unemployed workers are not getting their unemployment benefits in a timely fashion through his Department of Labor.

“As Delawareans are suffering economically, we rank 46th in handling vital CARES money,” continued Murray. “Think of it, we are in the midst of John Carney’s economic disaster and he dawdles with CARES money. All of this is criminal.

“John Carney has failed in dealing with the pandemic with the results being above average deaths and economic havoc,” concluded Murray. He must be held accountable.”

Kimberly Berg Finds Purpose in Art and Poetry

Mandala

Mandala

Meditation by Master Artist, Kimberly Berg

In the strictest sense of things, Kimberly didn't find art. Art found him.

Because of my historical background, it was a shock to realize that our present patriarchal culture could not be presumed to be the natural order of human society.”

— Kimberly Berg

NEW YORK, NY, USA, October 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Often life tends to take us on a path different from what we originally intended. This predicament was undoubtedly the case for artist Kimberly Berg. He originally had other plans when he moved from Wisconsin's rolling pastoral hills to the city that never sleeps.
In the strictest sense of things, Kimberly didn't find art. Art found him.

When he moved to New York City after graduating from the University of Wisconsin, Kimberly intended to become a writer. But moving toward getting a publisher didn't seem to be Kimberly's greater calling. He would become disenchanted by the publishing world and moved to the Adirondacks to build a cabin and live in simplicity.

Inspired by Thoreau and Zen philosophies, Kimberly Berg would resort to a self-sustainable way of living. He learned how to survive without electricity, use wood-fueled fires for heat, and grow his food. The shift of lifestyle would also expose Kimberly more and more to the craft of visual arts. He took the time to sketch, something he did in his childhood but never devoted himself to. Kimberly would hone his craft and master it, soon creating a unique style.
Today, Kimberly Berg wholeheartedly immerses himself in the world of art. To the premier artist, visual arts are more than just a means of creative expression. It's also a tool to communicate messages that matter. For artist Kimberly, his art is his voice raised against the abusive patriarchal culture that plagues the world. He uses his work to speak actively against abuse and discrimination toward women. Nowadays, women struggle to rise above society due to the prevailing mindsets that belittle women's work and effort. Generally, women receive lower salaries, lesser opportunities, and lesser chances of taking on influential community roles.

The inspiration for Kimberly's advocacy began ten years ago when he read Layne Redmond's When Drummers Were Women. "That book made me realize for the first time that a matrifocal culture has dominated the world since prehistoric times," shares Kimberly. "Because of my historical background, it was a shock to realize that our present patriarchal culture could not be presumed to be the natural order of human society. With this understanding, I had to acknowledge as a man enjoying the benefits of a privileged gender that it is indefensible to think of or treat women as inferior in any way."
Activist and artist Kimberly hopes that his work would inspire society to shift their ways and give women more chances to excel and thrive, whether at work or in life. He continually advocates for women's rights and equality all across the board.

Kimberly Berg has still put his writing background to fair use, often merging his visual art with poetry and creative writing. He seamlessly joins the impactful messaging of visual creations and the written word. Audiences readily interact with his work in an interdimensional way.
The gift to weave together the visual and written portions of his work makes Kimberly a unique artist. No other artist seamlessly blends both practices into one with perfection. Consequently, Kimberly Berg has received the highest praise and critical acclaim all across the art world. Today Kimberly Berg runs Isis Rising, a curation of his best works.

State authorities announce investigation into Lily Mei’s campaign

A screenshot is shown of what appears on the FPPC website. Status: Case Opened and Pending.

The case against Lily Mei is open and pending.

As of October 22, 2020, Fremont Mayor Lily Mei is now being investigated by state authorities for potentially violating state election law.

As of October 22, 2020, Fremont Mayor Lily Mei is now being investigated by state authorities for potentially violating state election law.

On October 23, 2020, the FPPC provided that it has merged all allegations into a single case that will be investigated.

The California Fair Political Practices Commission is investigating Lily Mei for potential violations of state election law.

FREMONT, CA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — On October 22, 2020, the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) announced that it has opened an investigation into Fremont Mayor Lily Mei’s campaign financial statements for potential violations of state election law. Chief of the Enforcement Division, Galena West, confirmed this in two public documents. (Copies of the public documents have been provided at the end of this article.)

On October 22 and October 23, Lily Mei and her re-election campaign were notified of these developments.
“This letter is to notify you that the Enforcement Division of the Fair Political Practices Commission will investigate the allegation(s), under the jurisdiction of the Commission, of the [complaint] submitted in the above-referenced matter.”

The investigation has been escalated from a mere complaint to an actual case and may be found at the FPPC’s Complaint and Case Information Portal by searching “Lily Mei” under “Respondent / Complainant.”

This case is now open and pending. State authorities are investigating Lily Mei and her re-election campaign (Case No. 2020-00923).

According to the FPPC, complaints are resolved in several ways depending on the strength of the evidence, the particular facts, and the amount of public harm involved. Here, Lily Mei is the only Fremont Mayoral candidate where the allegations, evidence, facts, and circumstances were serious enough to warrant the opening of a case by the FPPC.

In contrast, no other Fremont mayoral candidate is being investigated for potentially violating state election law. All other complaints made in this Fremont mayoral race against other mayoral candidates have been rejected by the FPPC—except the complaint against Lily Mei.
Potential consequences for violating the Political Reform Act include administrative proceedings, criminal prosecution, and civil action.

This is not Lily Mei’s first investigation by the FPPC. After an investigation commenced during the 2016 election, the FPPC found Lily Mei to have violated five (5) counts of state election law in 2017 after the election had concluded. Her violations included not reporting campaign donations and campaign expenditures, including almost $24,000 in late campaign expenditures.

To obtain an unredacted version of Lily Mei’s campaign financial disclosures, submit your formal request by emailing the Fremont City Clerk at: cclerk@fremont.gov. There appear to be many glaring discrepancies, ranging from misspelled addresses to incomplete donor information. Note that the City Clerk must provide you the ability to procure the unredacted hard copy of Lily Mei’s Form 460 filings under the law upon request.
