As an adult, have you been convicted or charged with a crime other than a minor traffic violation?

Yes

 

If so, please explain and include dates and locations.

1. Charged with Mal. Misc.  – Not Guilty .  Two P.C. Sheriffs Dep. came to the house four my No. 2 son accused of driving a go-cart on street. Officers were taking son to jail & wanted to talk to me. I was relaxing in my bathtub. No. 3 son called me to the door, of which I had no knowledge. Officer Wagenblast ordered me outside, even though I had only a towel on. “I refused.”

Officer W. pulled his gun and entered my house throwing me against the wall. I went to the bedroom, put on shorts & t-shirt and went outside. While talking to O. W., Officer Zinter clubbed me in the back of the head three times (first two were med. Hits). I went down hard on my face – they picked me up by my hair (I weighed a muscular 225) , slammed my head into police car drip rail breaking three teeth, threw me into back seat on my face, and then Zinter kicked me in the back of the head five times with the heel of his new shoes (his words) and so on……  happy to go on with info to anyone.

2. Ten other incidents with police assaulting me for repairing my water pipe, fixing my fence, standing with comments at the March 2008 meeting at City Hall (where “TNT” reported over 400 attendee’s (or so)), when Police Chief Jim Andrews grabbed me and said  “..you’re under arrest…” twice.  The second time he added in a whisper (about the “water pipe break by City Manager Bob Jean’s buddy (Owner) Asphalt Patch Systems, who broke my H2O pipe and the six U.P. Police cars that arrived to arrest and assault me (many injuries). “You’d better keep your mouth shut if you know what’s good for you!”

3. Next-door neighbor, drug dealer shot five, 9-mm bullets into my house & car, and one into (accidently into a distant neighbors house) - called four times in five hours. U.P. Police “refused to respond” and officially by Jim Andrews & Jennifer Hales. “It did not happen…”. Fifteen degrees to the left and my No. 3 son would need to be buried or cremated to avoid stinking up the area.

4. There are too many incidents to mention here, but I, my wife and No. 3 son would be all but too happy to respond to all questions. It would take at least a TNT like diatribe re: “Recall Dale Washam” to cover all this.

5. Don’t Believe It? Many video and audio tapes are available !

6. These and all other/most facts (to be honest and factual as requested) were recently (within the last five weeks) were briefed to “new” City Manager Steve Sugg and Steve Victor.

Other campaigns for public office:

 University Place City Council: 1995-2007, 2009-2011

 

THIS CAMPAIGN:

What is the primary reason you are running for this office?

 1. No more spending on anything except paying down our City’s $60 million-plus debt by selling off the land & buildings we own/within the Town Center area and let real developers develop the land. For businesses, that we drop ALL impact fees for and let them “Fly Free to Succeed U.P.!"

 

What will be your top three priorities if you get elected and why?

1. Get a total of four, common sense votes to add to the one common sense vote of Javier Figueroa. Now, it is “the rest of us against you Javier...” Caroline Belleci, at a recent Council meeting.

2. Pair with: Lakewood Police Department for a new University Place Police Department and shed ourselves from the endemic corruption  (Sheriff Janovich, etc.) that has plagued the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department since my 1965 arrival. Hire the many fine P.C. Sheriff’s deputies that are rendered inoperative by an inadequate command structure.

3. Aid and assist the new city manager and staff in taking this City of University Place out of the "Disaster it is Encompassed By." We need four common sense votes we do not now have, and only the voters can do this by waking up to reality. And with the “complaint you make for any reason” is registered into our books by “date and seal” and responded to as the Constitution of the United States was so written.   

What sets you apart from the other candidates and/or previous office holders?

I have been assaulted, verbally and physically attacked, threatened with death by several of the police staff and this should not be and it should be addressed truthfully.

I am not afraid to confront the undue threats against me for un-covering corruption and just plain bad judgment.

As is attested by my media coverage over serious international issues, covered by and affirmed by “Jack Anderson with Les Whitten Column” (Google it), “60 Minutes” with Ed Bradley (X2), “Current Affair”, “The Crusaders”, local  KOMO TV, KING TV, KIRO TV, KLAY, and coverage all over the world, "40-plus hours” on live talk radio, etc., etc., “Mollnow v. Carlton” on hundreds of lawsuits up to and including the U.S. Supreme Court as did I show, that if you have a problem within this city I will address it.

Check Out – www.youtube.com/carlmollnow  to be but a small portion of my travels in this experiment in Democracy.

Question: Has anyone candidate – good, bad or indifferent – done as much ?

 

Official endorsements:

1. Pierce County Republican Party  - Carl J. Mollnow

 

2. The Tacoma News Tribune (now: “The News Tribune” ):

2009 - "volatile," or something like that.

2011 - "Mollnow is temperamentally unsuited for the council. Nye and Campbell are both smart and analytical; both are in real estate. Nye is an uncommonly impressive candidate. He is a former Special Forces commander; he founded a real estate marketing company, and he’s a state and regional leader of Realtors organizations.

Thank You, News Tribune  “ I Love you too!“ I approved this message! - Carl J. Mollnow

Continued to complete response to JB 6:37pm on Thursday, August 4, 2011: 4. The "..dysfunctional local politics.." has been the U.P. Council as our Credit Card Billing Statement reflects to and on the taxpayers and businesses pocketbooks. Since being a part of the "..dysfunctional.." PCRP Jonathan / Linda (or to whomever you are), the letter that "Linda Bird.." sent to PCRP requesting "Republican Endorsement" must be because she / you couldn't spell Democrat (whom from a reliable source), after no PCRP Response ,she did ask for Democrat endorsement. I still have a copy of that letter - if so the U.P. Patch Director would allow, I could post it for all those who can't handle the truth to see. The DNA may still be preserved inside my ziplock bag. Thank you Jonathan Bird for your endorsement and taking the time out of your busy day to do so. Carl J. Mollnow, Proud Eagle Scout from St. Francis of Assisi Troop, Tonawanda, N.Y.

Chris ! Thank you for your Laughing Out Loud - I try to keep people laughing and as to your endorsement , I have succeeded. As to the "LOL @ jr-birdman!" - after being a pilot for 59 years and counting with over 25,000 hours , and seeing ( ie.: in, over and or around every country and piece of earth above all the oceans surface) the entire world you may ( to be totally factual) want to (at your discretion and of free will) consider "..really old bird-man.." who has: "Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of-.." ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Gillespie_Magee,_Jr.) I would like to thank you for your fine but short endorsement for my candidacy to the University Place City Council Position #6. Your time to do this great civil outpouring effort on my behalf is appreciated. You, " my friend" (or maybe not from your perspective) are great a citizen for all the effort you have expended in doing so. Thank You ! Carl J. Mollnow, 253-564-1481

Dan ! Thank you very much for your great endorsement ! The University Place Patch has afforded all the candidates the freedom to express themselves fully - which you (and others I had hoped) seemed to enjoy. So to test this afforded freedom - I opened the faucet and the "The University Place Patch" came thru in an Awesome Manner" WOW ! I sent the same verbiage to the "The News Tribune" but if you use this URL - it did not just come out the same. Those interested could do a comparison. Here: ( http://wwwb.thenewstribune.com/elections/race.php?id=316 ) Thanks for your great assessment of my little life's Experiment in Democracy. And, Hey Dan - I owe the "University Place Patch" and Editor Brent Champaco: (and all those associated with "The Patch Systems Cities Concept"). Thanks Again Dan ! Carl J. Mollnow, 253-564-1481
