Whatever the thieves and liars come up with, it will wind up costing the taxpayers held hostage in that city more.

Much more.

It always does.

Hale has a lucrative real estate business and Rotella is a successful podiatrist. I'm sure that their "secondary" jobs provide them with "enough" How about you?

I wish Jonnie would just move away and take your 'growth' with you. my neighborhood in last 5 years has gone to crapola! thank you for the empty homes and evicted renters, thank you for not even feeling safe walking to the park anymore. I did not, will not, ever vote for a land developer/real estate cheat in any office. We are truly 'Useless, Florida' and I just know she and the rest of the pro growth people will win the elections. I just wish we could sell our house and move NOW.

AMEN SISTER!(OR BROTHER!)I have lived her 7 years and have seen absolutely NO change for the better-it's all old school, Good Ol' Boy thinking-to them, change is BAD and WRONG. They don't want the citizen's input. It's always the same people-and that Lake Eustis Institute??? Give me a BREAK-book reading club? where is the enrichment? they don't support the arts or artists in the community-only one old lady's book club.

Generally I don't see eye to eye with Ritchie but we're on the same page with this article. I'm glad that I live in unincorporated Lake County so I don't have to deal with Big Fish in Little Ponds mentality of local city commissioners. Having to foot their insurance bills is ridiculous and every member of that community should be outraged that they're providing health care to these idiots when most are feeling the pain of our economic downturn. Let these idiots know how you feel November 4th!!!
