RATEPAYERS RIPPED: Infamous Casey council loses $3 million in failed footy pokies scheme

CaseyjokersThe notorious Casey council in Melbourne’s East has sunk at least three million dollars in what looks like being a big bad debt financial catastrophe with the Casey Scorpions Football Club.

The Club intended to build a pokies venue in the area to fund its ongoing operations which included employing former Carlton footballer Brendan Fevola. The council, run with an iron-fist by accused sexual harasser CEO Mike Tyler, lent the $3 million on the hope it would be repaid from the proceeds of the pokies operation the club planned to establish with the money. Council insiders say the club has already sold off its pokies licences and could be weeks away from going into liquidation, taking $3 million of ratepayers’ money with it.

Tyler and his faction on the council were criticised by locals at the time for receiving extensive hospitality from the Club.

The only hope for ratepayers, talked up by Tyler around town, that Melbourne Football Club would take over the failing club and agree to pay off the $3 million lent by the council is written off as a “fantasy” by sources familiar with AFL finances. Ratepayers are set to lose millions. Even the Club’s players have gone unpaid since Round 5 this year, the Herald Sun reports below.

Tyler, probably the most politically involved and scheming of any council CEO in Victoria, personally insisted ratepayers stump up the money and was heavily backed in the endeavour by the Tyler faction, headed by Mercedes-driving Customs official Sam Aziz.

That group overwhelmingly won the most recent council election, even to the extent that one of Aziz’s dummy candidates immediately resigned upon election, saying she couldn’t do the job and potentially electing a discredited former councillor Bob Halsall, whose wife Janet was mayor when it was revealed the council had poisoned 1000 homes with a malfunctioning landfill. Municipal authorities are believed to be investigating the dummy candidate scam.

  3. You can bark like rabid dogs Vexnews and no one will take any notice of your crap as usual. Clearly devastated by the wipeout your mates had at the recent election. Tell me what wins you’ve had? Tyler is still the CEO and your snitches on Casey Council have ALL disappeared off the board. No doubt you will edit this posting or not publish it altogether, but I will have it emailed to a few people. Once a loser, always a loser. Where is your reporting on Bradford’s crimes, or his choice of dummy candidate being charged with very serious offences in the middle of the campaign, or Greens former councillor Keleher’s incompetence and stupidity? The electorate has spoken you fools and you’ve been out manoeuvred. Checkmate.

  6. The real son of a whore is the prick who forced a prisoner in his care to “perform” with a glue stick whilst he was a police officer (aka [deleted]) pity she was the daughter of an illegal motor cycle gang chief, then got an innocent man to be killed in his place. Can’t wait for IBCAC. You are the absolute cesspool of life. We know you’re hurting and we are enjoying watching it. What about the Logan children- do you remember stealing the money? I have also heard that [deleted] is sending his wife to work in a brothel because he was counting on that councillor allowance. Pity !

  8. The only good thing about the recent local elections results in Casey is that there isn’t a Halsall to be seen. Not the chief former mayor Janet Halsall who is happy to use her [deleted] daughter to run in a ward simply to prevent another candidate from being elected. Although from what I hear her unemployed gimp of a husband who hasn’t worked a day in his life and lived of welfare and the money from his [deleted] wife’s mother who was deported from England for tax evasion who then moved to Australia and found out what a disgrace her daughter is and was so ashamed decided to leave this earth merely to get away from daughter and ute prosit grand daughter.

  10. Is there any way to get Casey to secede from the State of Victoria. Just an appalling place, that elects appalling representatives that employ an appalling CEO. A pox on their houses and let’s be rid of them.

  18. The Member for Mordialloc has been having a great old time at the races at taxpayer expense. Saw here there 5 times in two weeks, and I dont think she was following the horses. Never saw so many god damn awful hats and cleavage in my life as on that old mare.

  23. I have found myself of late being woken by extremely weird noises at night, a sound that is similar to cats crying in the night. I was surprised that one morning I noticed a female leaving the home of my next door Neighbor and realised she was Lorraine Wreford a State Member of Parliament.
    Interesting I have since found out that my Neighbor is in fact the CEO of the City of Casey who I have googled and found out his name is Mike Tyler. Doing a little bit more research I found out that Lorraine Wreford was the former Mayor of the City if Casey. Must have been and very good time during her mayoral year.

  24. Big Inga Binga has her favourite Egyptian, the wealthy customs official who has proved his value in supporting the corrupt Casey Council CEO Mike Tyler , will support Sam Aziz to stand for the Libs at the next state election for the seat of Narre Warren South against incumbent ALP State Member the inaffective Judith Grayley.
    Big Inga has been sounding out a few close confidants recently with some a bit scepticle on Slippery Sam as his was a member of the ALP before resigning to assist his election to The dysfunctional Casey Council before trying to re-join in 2010 only to be told by the ALP Admin Branch in no uncertain terms thanks but no thanks.
    Sam, who prides himself on his wealth, mainly due to his hard working Dentist wife who drives around in his beloved Merc ( a new White one, not the one pictured above ) has always had his sights set on Spring Street will do anything with anyone to achieve his perceived right of passage into the Victorian Parliament………more to come……!!!

  25. It seems that Ben Clissold , now in the employ of the MLA for Mordialloc, is a too frequent contributor to Vexnews halo scan comments.

    If the fat lady finds out, he will end up having to go back to his night life promoting dubious clubs.

  31. As a long time Liberal, I hope it is not true about one of our Liberal Upper House Members attempting to either persuade or support the endorsement of Sam Aziz to run as an endorsed Liberal member for the seat of Narre Warren South at the next state election. Having lived in the City of Casey for the past 25years and one who has closely followed our local council activities, I would be appalled if the Liberal Party endorsed such a man. Having seen first hand how this man chaired council meeting when Mayor and how he dealt with his fellow councillors, the way he spoke to members of the gallery and his unashamed support of the CEO in relation to his sexual harassment of a female staff member it is obvious that Sam Aziz has such an overrated opinion of himself and pays no attention to the desires of the community. I was amazed he was in fact re-elected at the recent election and one thinks it was mainly due to the local community not being aware of who this man actually is. I hope and pray that Gary Rowe, now elected to council takes the next step and returns to his former role as the State Member for Cranbourne. Gary Rowe is still very much respected in the Cranbourne community and did such a good job in his period as our representative. We need good people, male or female, to represent us. We don’t need arrogant and egotistical people like Sam Aziz. I respectfully ask Inga Peulich to end this alleged support of this person

  33. Poor old Geoff Ablett thought he was home and hosed to have another crack at the state seat of Cranbourne…….that was before the well respected and liked Gary Rowe found himself elected as local councillor for the Cranbourne area. Geoff “the druggie”Ablett spent most of the last three years in the Cranbourne area trying desperately to boost his profile and prove his value to the residents of Cranbourne and at one stage was going to jump ship from his Balla Balla Ward and stand in the Mayfield Ward, only to be told to stay where he is as Gary Rowe will stand for the predominantly Cranbourne based ward. Already local Libs are desparetly asking Rowe to stand at the next state election and don’t want Ablett as their Liberal choice due to his poor performance on council. Local state Labor member Jude Perera will also be hoping Ablett will stand as that would assure him of a victory with the tables being reversed if Rowe decides to stand in Cranbourne

  34. Is Insider Gary Rowe?

    Posted by Anon | November 20, 2012, 1:07
  35. Anon…NO, I am not Gary Rowe, Cr.Rowe does not need to write such facts about himself, he has numerous loyal supporters within the Cranbourne area unlike Geoff Ablett who can only operate when instructed to by Inga Peulich.
    Gary Rowe is not a Peulich lacky like the one less Ableet is and he has the expierance and no how to stand up to corrupt bureaucrats and to defeat the current local Labor MP which is something only Ablett can dream to do.

  36. Following this blog for some time, I don’t usually contribute however, I am urged to do so on this occasion as I really agree with the comments entered above under the name of Insider. I too also very much hope that Gary Rowe will stand for our party at the next State election for Cranbourne as he is a true professional and has the backbone to stand up for his residents even if that means going against his party. Cr. Ablett has in my opinion not served his time and proved himself as an effective elected representative at this stage.

    Posted by Lib Supporter | November 20, 2012, 21:28
  37. But Ablett got a 10% swing against Labor in 2010 .Laborites who are posting on Vexnews to discourage the Libs from backing Ablett – your tactics are a little too obvious!

  39. Ablett got a 10% swing when the residents were fed up of a Labor government and at that time new nothing about Ablett apart from him being a footballer.
    Now the local residents know a lot more about him. They know that he promises everything to everyone but delivers nothing. They know that he supports sexual assault again women as proven by his support of his puppet master CEO of Casey Mike Tyler. They know that the name Ablett is associated to drugs which saw his son die of an overdose, his brother involved In the death of a female involved in a drug overdose, they know his nephew sanctioned by the AFL for drug taking. A lot has changed since the last election and the residents are well aware of his failings.

  40. But Ablett is going to kick some ALP backside come 2014! He’ll kick goals and behinds.
