Editor, The News:
After reviewing the last BOCC meeting of June 18 I was stunned by the comments of two of our commissioners.
The first was an admission by Mr. (Jerry) Moore that the BOCC raised taxes, only to be refuted by Commissioner (Alan) Brock.
Mr. Brock showed his immaturity and naiveté when he said taxes were not raised. I noted that he didn’t say it very loudly as he would have the TV audience rolling on the floor with laughter.
What does he think that seven percent on all our utilities are! This comment coming from a commissioner who is in debt up to his ears, spends others money like water, owns no property and doesn’t pay taxes himself!
Commissioner Moore’s second comment lauding Commissioner (Mike) Stewart’s leadership then had me wondering what BOCC meetings I had attended?
Only during the development of the last budget did Mr. Stewart recognize the error of his ways. This is politics in play; pick a previous commissioner to blame. I remember Mr. (Howard) Kessler voting seven or eight times against the budget that Mr. Moore blames for the county’s troubles. Mr. Moore needs to check the records – there were five commissioners on that Board. But only one commissioner continuously asked the hard questions.
Mr. Moore’s agenda is now clear: expand at all costs, at the taxpayer’s expense.
Go ahead and pave Wakulla Gardens, without storm sewers we will just be ripping it up soon. That costs money the county taxpayers and citizens of that area do not have.
So far, I haven’t seen the hard questions coming from him and I, for one, am tired of the blame game.
