Fund raisers, Political rallies, and biased reporting. It is readily apparent that this fund raiser, while for a worthy cause, was politically motivated. Is it strictly a coincidence that it was scheduled a short time before elections? I don't think so. This "fund raiser" was actually a poorly concealed attempt to promote the political candidates supported by the Wilkins ( one builder supporting another, hmmmm). If you do not know who the Wilkins support, just drive by their office on Lake Park.
This paper reported that a finger pointing battle was initiated as a result of politically motivated flyers being circulated at this event. The caption read: "Mayor's wife makes accusations, etc." This was indeed a biased slant on what transpired, as the correct caption might have read: "Local builder's wife creates political finger pointing fight with flyers", or Dan Wilcox accused of political brinkmanship at fund raiser" or "Fund raiser takes a political turn". My point is that there are many different angles that this could have been approached, and for you to put the focus on Kim Lewis is wrong. It was indeed Mrs. Wilkins and her politically motivated flyers that started this fight. I applaud Kim for calling it like it is.
