Enemies list at D.O.N.E???
In fact, Sarno is rapidly becoming known in the City for two things; inserting the phrase "if you will" into virtually every sentence she says, and being a real pain in the backside to Neighborhood Council leaders. While the former is fun at first and eventually irritating to watch, it is the latter that has got her in ever-rising hot water within the ranks of the LANC system.
Currently, Sarno is rumored to be compiling a detailed list of virtually every allegation against any Neighborhood Council member, supposedly for our favorite ass-clown Jack Weiss. More than one NC member has told the Sister City that DONE is compiling an "enemies list" of activists who have dared to confront DONE.
So just what in the hell is going on over at the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment? And more importantly, how long is the mayor going to let this situation deteriorate?
Sarno is currently the subject of a no-confidence vote circulating across the city's NC system, has over 50% of all NC elections being delayed and has failed, for the first time in DONE's history, to hold the semi-annual "Congress of Neighborhoods" for NC members. Add to that her apparent animosity towards NC Boards and what appears to be her keen desire to put NC's "in there place" and you have a volatile mix.
Which brings up the alleged "enemies list". The list allegedly contains the names of well-known NC activists including Jason Lyon, Jim Alger, Brady Westwater, Dan Weisman, Ken Draper and more. Now from where I sit, these probably aren't a cast of characters I would want gunning for me if I were in Ms Sarno's position.
My bigger question is this: assuming this is true, What in the name of all that is holy is Lisa Sarno thinking? And what part of "Neighborhood Empowerment" are they missing at DONE?
