Talk about putting your money where your mouth is...

Eisemann's Alleged Role of Richardson Political Puppeteer Causes Business to Bale From the Chamber! How Many More to Follow?!"

Below is an e-mail exchange between the Richardson Chamber of Commerce and a local business owner. Imagine if a few more business owners were to follow suit, based on Eismann's dealings in our local elections and the role he plays within the chamber, I bet people would start paying attention.

I see from our system that you have chosen to not renew you membership dues with the Richardson Chamber of Commerce this year. If you wouldn't mind taking a few minutes and letting me know what was missing from your experience with the Richardson Chamber so that we might be able to make some changes for the future or let you know about programs we already offer to help your business. What we want most is to help our members grow their businesses through support, networking and information from our various events and if your feedback can help us improve upon these then we would love to hear from you.

Thank you for your time!

The reason is Chuck Eisemann, the Richardson Coalition and the propaganda they produce.


Thanks,

I appreciate your feedback, however, could you explain why this affected your company being a part of the Richardson Chamber? Chuck Eisemann and the Richardson Coalition and their politics did not have any connection with the Richardson Chamber of Commerce. Chuck Eisemann is an active member of the Chamber but his political views are separate from his activities in the Chamber.

The Chamber is here to help grow your business and we do not participate in any type of politics and we would like to continue to serve and help grow your company. Please help me understand your perspective.

Thank you!

I will be glad to explain. It is personal for me. Chuck Eisemann is more than an "active member" of the Richardson Chamber. He is currently on the Board of Directors. My dislike of Chuck Eisemann and the Richardson Coalition center on their views and actions. While Chuck Eisemann and the Richardson Coalition have rights to their views and freedom to express those views, I disagree with those views. My view of their collusive actions are another point of contention.

More specifically though, Dave Peters, Martha Ritter, Chuck Eisemann, Ken Bell and others are part of the same group. I have taken their surveys, read their newsletters and website, and saw their Voters Guide for the most recent election. Their newsletters are one sided and biased. Their scheming surveys are designed to get a specific response to support their own views. They then represent their surveys as the views of the majority of Richardson residents, which is dishonest. Their connived Voters Guide was the worst. Any intelligent and informed person should be disgusted with that group and their actions.

I will not voluntarily associate myself with any group they are involved with. Chuck's is involvement with the Richardson Chamber precludes my involvement. In my view, as a result of their actions, dishonesty and propaganda, Chuck and his little band of friends are characters I feel a need to be distanced from. Since he is on the Board of Directors, the Richardson Chamber is a place to be distanced from as well.

Hopefully, this answers your questions. If not, feel free to call or email.

  1. This is only the tip of the iceberg involving these sleazebags Chuck Eisemann, Gary Slagel, Dave Peters, Martha "Bitter" Ritter, and their elderly Richardson Coalition cronies.

    From what I understand, the RC regularly has meetings at the chamber, and that they are approved by the chamber president, Bill Sproull. Of course, Sproull faines total ignorance, which is ridiculous.

    The more businesses who hang up their membership in this sham chamber organization, the better. Perhaps, a strong message might be sent when the money stops flowing in.

    Also, an email to Bill Sproull might not hurt: bill@richardsonchamber.com. After all, isn't it us little people who pay taxes who subsidize the chamber. Maybe, Bill needs a little reminder.

  2. The City of Richardson's form of government can best be described as a KLEPTOCRACY, which by definition is a term applied to a government that extends the personal wealth and political power of government officials and the ruling class (collectively, kleptocrats) at the expense of the population, sometimes without even the pretense of honest service. Given what we have been subjected to in protecting our personal interests in building a new home and the development of a community, but more importantly our efforts to have enforced the applicable local, state, and federal laws, statues, rules, and ordinances, the following is being offered to expose what in our informed and documented opinion appears to be obvious long-standing and well-entrenched corruption in not only this city but also the DFW metroplex:

  4. Chamber has financials done every year and are available around Labor Day for the prior year. You would be surprised (or atleast I was) on the amount of taxpayer fund given to support their efforts...eh pardon me....actually it is salaries for 4 of the chamber leadership

  5. My son and I are witnesses to the harassment and intimidation campaign carried out against 'HBomb' and his wife, along with other honest people who have tried to expose their corruption.
