In a recent comment, sTONY MEADow points out that Jeb Bush’s email dump from earlier this year includes a few items from and concerning Wolfgang Halbig. Most of it is pretty mundane stuff, from back when he was sane: school safety, pushing his old school safety website, that sort of thing.

Wolfgang Halbig, a consultant for our district for school safety, told me he was asked to be one of 10 people on a safety committee for the state.

HALBIG, I am the former director of PROJECT EXCEL an alternative school for students who have been expelled from public schools in Seminole County. You were our guest twice with parents and all of our students appreciative of your visit. We provided excellent media coverage for your visit. You extended your hand to me, and promised that if you were elected governor of our state that you would extend an invitation in discussing school safety and alternative education. I believe in you and your brother in providing new vision and leadership for America. I am a naturalized citizen of this country who earned the privilege. I taught American Government in High Schools hoping to share my passion about government and on how we can make a difference. I just gave the keynote speech for SAFE SCHOOLS in the state of NEBRASKA, invited by the Commissioner of Education and the Governor of the state of Nebraska. I am currently training over 1500 school resource officers and school administrators through the Federal Cops program across the United States, one of those national programs is slated for Tampa Florida in August. If you know anyone in a company called FAMILY FIRST out of Tampa Florida, they evaluated our program and would be an excellent reference. AS YOU CAN SEE I AM TRYING.... I have no political clout except for my passion for our children and teachers in public schools. All I can do is ask for your consideration, you have children as does your brother, teaching character education is vital, I have always been taught that a promise is a promise. I am only asking because I believe in what we are trying to accomplish. THANKS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION. WOLF WOLFGANG W. HALBIG 2561GRASSY POINT DRIVE # 201 LAKE MARY, FLORIDA. 32746 407-804-8310 407-496-5551 cell p.s. I saw you at the Charlotte, N.C. Airport and you asked me to E-Mail You.
By 2005, the weird and obsessive Halbig that we now know is emerging.

The train as you know, runs through Broward and Dade County. It could have and should have been stocked with supplies dropping of supplies in areas of need. The train system also could have provided tents for shelter. I have been doing this for over thirty years and again if it is not there idea it must not be a good idea. Just look at the people suffering when solutions are crystal clear. Hope that you will consider this as part of your Emergency Plan in the future. Tanks Wolfgang W. Halbig
From: Halbig, Wolfgang <HalbigW@lake.k12.fl.us> Sent: Wednesday, October 19, 2005 2:43 PM To: Governor Jeb Bush Subject: Emergency Management Recommendation Governor Bush; In the United Air Force I was trained in Disaster Preparedness in light of the fact that our base served as a B-52 Bomber base with nuclear weapons. The number one issue that confronted the base and the community on a daily bases was what if a B-52 Bomber crashed and an accident occurred triggering an explosion. How would we handle such a scenario? Hurricane Katrina again showed us that we are vulnerable when a plan is not executed and all of our resources not utilized. We in Florida have been very fortunate in our response. But, I would like for you to urgently consider adopting a new concept that requires Amtrak to become a front line provider in evacuating senior citizens out of the area. Our job would be to transport them to the train station for evacuation. The sleeper cars would be ideal in providing some comfort instead of lying on a tarmac, airport lounge, cargo area, or left in a wheel chair to die. The compartments would allow nursing help as needed; the dinning cars would provide food services that are fully serviced before arriving. Homeland Security can sent those resources to an area that needs to have to most vulnerable evacuated. The United States Government already subsidizes this expensive system, and I believe that with your help that states that need to get people out of the area who cannot afford it can use the trains and our busses. Large numbers can be evacuated quickly and safely to designated points for pickup and sheltering. Amtrak is one of our greatest resources for the elderly. Please, Please, Please get someone to incorporate this most valuable resource into our response program in order to save those in need. You are our leader in time of emergencies; please share this concept with others. Thanks Wolfgang W. Halbig Risk Manager Lake County School Board 352-253-6660 Office 352-343-3779 Fax
These are in addition to sTONY MEADow’s interesting 2002 find. Halbig says he never knew his father, and his age today suggests he was born after the fall of Berlin, so I wonder if he’s one of those countless German bastards born immediately after the war.
