Sittenfeld and Seelbach Profile Mental Illness

Written By: Ishton W. Morton – March 10th, 2019

Councilmember P.G. Sittenfeld announcement on Sunday that him and his fellow councilmember Chris Seelbach have filed a motion

While we have all come to understand that arrogance indicates a significant implication a strong sense of false pride or an act of extreme self-important; To be complicated with an enormous loss of contact with reality and overestimating one’s own competence or capability.

In particular, on Thursday, March 7th, 2019 the five council members and self-proclaimed “Gang of Five” are P.G. Sittenfeld, Chris Seelbach, Greg Landsman, Tamaya Dennard and Wendell Young attitudes, behavior and performance left little to be desired.

Pursuant to the hearing in Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman it is  found that they are immeasurably arrogant and egotistical.

Apparently, one day after five Cincinnati City Council members admitted they broke the law, thousands of newly released, secret text messages are causing waves at City Hall.

 Additionally, arrogance is also associated with a colossal lack of humility and love toward oneself. Examples include making oneself far more important than others or superiority. 

Subsequently, arrogance is usually detrimental and fosters a negative-minded culture.  This is a magnificent description of  both P.G. Sittenfeld and Chris Seelbach.

It comes one day after Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman blasted the council members, calling on them to resign.

One of the exchanges between two city councilmen accuses Vice Mayor Chris Smitherman of using his wife’s battle with cancer for political gain.

Gang of Five

Again, the five council members and self-proclaimed “Gang of Five” are P.G. Sittenfeld, Chris Seelbach, Greg Landsman, Tamaya Dennard and Wendell Young. The group admitted this week to conducting public business in private via text messages with each other.

In retrospect, Sittenfeld and Seelbach discussed comments Smitherman may have made on talk radio relative to Sittenfeld calling demonizing and dehumanizing Smitherman for not attending Sittenfeld’s news conference.

Ironically, Sittenfeld texted Seelbach, saying that the comment seemed “desperate,” as if Smitherman felt “threatened.”

Responsively, Seelbach sent this text: “100%. And the fact that he is using his wife, saying “While I’m home taking care of my dying wife…” is disgusting.”

To be followed as Sittenfeld replied: “It really is grotesque. Using that for a political agenda is actually staggering.”

Seelbach texted back: “Yup. As I’ve said for 6 years, both Cranley and Smitherman seem to have serious mental illnesses.”

Let it be made perfectly clear that arrogance is quite different from confidence and it is associated with insecurity and insanity.

Although I have no training in the medical arena, referencing that which is written by Sittenfeld and Seelbach their profile fit the definition of one who is suffering from mental illness. See for yourself! As defined some medical language, mental illness refers to a wide range of mental health conditions — disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior. Examples of mental illness include depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders and addictive behaviors. Many people have mental health concerns from time to time.

Meanwhile, Smitherman’s wife, Pamela Smitherman, died in January after having breast cancer and an autoimmune disease that attacked her brain. A text message exchange one year earlier accused Smitherman of using his wife’s illness for political gain. Smitherman brought new meaning to “For better or for worst, In sickness and in health, Until death do you part. He was there for all the way. I have the photos to support these contentions.

Accordingly, on Friday, March 8th, 2019 on WLWT TV 5 News, Smitherman released a statement in part saying: “As a family, we do not wish this crisis on our worst enemy. There is nothing political about death.”
