EDGAR CO. (ECWd) -
Hypocrisy at the highest level, but that shouldn't surprise anyone in this county when we're dealing with people that don't know what being honest or doing the right thing means.
I think most are fully aware of the underhanded actions by several of the current and past Airport Board members to include Chris Patrick as it relates to RSB Aviation and his insurance.
As Chris continues to manipulate and posture his efforts to get rid of RSB, we continue to gather information to present the bigger picture. If liability to the county was honestly the concern as it relates to the Airport, may I suggest the following be removed from public office and county employment: Jimmy Wells, Chis Patrick, Ben Jenness, Adonna Bennett, Mike Helstely.
Jimmy Wells for lies and deception on more fronts than I can track, to include fabrication of documents.
Chris Patrick for total disregard for the liability the county is facing because of his total lack of ensuring the County Airport is properly insured.
Ben Jenness for failing to ensure the County Airport has proper insurance coverage as he is the Chairman of the County Insurance committee.
Adonna Bennett for demanding and implying RSB needs several million dollars of coverage for his business, yet no such coverage is in place for themselves.
Mike Helstely for his failure to get the insurance information for the airport to see what liability they have before attacking RSB about his coverage.
Ben Jenness relied on Rita Goodman with Diamond Brothers to provide her interpretation (not in writing of course - so who knows what was actually said or not) of RSB insurances, which was later proven wrong as can be seen in the video. Ironically, while staying focused on trying to prove something is wrong with RSB and using the insurance agent to assist them in that witch hunt, they forget a few key things, primarily a Mirror!
I received a copy of the County Airport Insurance Declaration today and OHH is it quite telling! MAXIMUM coverage for key components is $1,000,000.00, which is half of the minimum they are demanding RSB have, but that's not the best part of this.
Fire Damage Limit Any One Fire - Coverage= $oo.oo
That's right, NO COVERAGE at all for a fire!
So all this crap about a plane catching fire and attacking Rusty on those topics we now see that the very people in charge spewing this garbage have absolutely no coverage for such an event, yet they claim they are concerned about liability to the county?
Lies! Nothing but Lies!
Non-Owned Aircraft Liability Limit Any One Occurrence? = $00.00
No insurance coverage for non-owned aircraft liability. So when that total stranger flies into the airport with no insurance of his own and takes out a building or God forbid kills someone, your county leaders have no insurance coverage for the airport!
Medical Expense Limit Any One Person? = $3,000.00!
Three Thousand Dollars of coverage wouldn't cover the Ambulance transport and Emergency room bill, yet they want to attack RSB about his business acumen?
Hangerkeepers Limit Any one Aircraft? = $500,000.00
You will hear Ben Jenness imply as much as $10,000,000.00 in insurance might be needed, and even attacks RSB with a comment of ; "Dollar amount is not very much" 1:03:20 mark.
OH REALLY BEN?
What do you call 3K of coverage for Medical Expense or no coverage at all for fire?
Ben Jenness - "I will give you Insurance facts"
Here is some Insurance Facts for you Ben! The Edgar County Airport insurance policy was received and the information on it tells me that you, Chairman of the County Insurance committee and Chris Patrick, former Airport Board Chairman and current county board chairman have been operating the Edgar County Airport without key insurance that the most basic business owner would know about, and in many of those cases it was the very thing used to attack RSB. From not being insured for key items to under insured by their own standard they are throwing at RSB.
Why would it be necessary for Rusty to carry more insurance on the airport as additionally insured than they carry on themselves when they have a larger risk than he does? Does everyone else smell the skunk yet?
Now we know the truth!
Insurance had nothing to do with what is going on out at the airport with RSB. It's clearly a personal agenda orchestrated by Chris Patrick and this proves that yet again. His unfounded attacks to a man's character over insurance, all while allowing the airport to operate without even the most basic of insurance, fire coverage, proves who has the real Character issue!
The very pot calling the kettle black is now exposed and by all appearances, that pot keeps rusting out from under itself as the Truth has no Agenda!
