Bye Bye Addie, good riddence. It is time we kicked another of the three stooges off the list that run our county. Good thing you are getting out before the feds turn up the heat on the corruption case again. This is probably the smartest thing you have done yet. Hey Burt, do you feel the noose getting tighter now that Addie is going too????

Addie battles cancer, chairs the Commission, fights with the police, deals with corruption and campaigns for re-election all without complaining about the "stress".

Now that's she's no longer the Cairperson and the election is over, she's a lame duck, out in four years, and only has to show up twice a month to meetings; now she has stress?

Want to bet the Feds gave her a deal...resign or else!

She's right, her cancer and her knees have nothing to do with the corruption, but her resignation does! Leave now and keep your $300,000 lump sum DROP payment and your $53,000 a year pension. Fail to leave and face the loss of both and possible jail time.

She only supports black people and their problems and furthering their agenda (she voted against Boca getting scripps and supported Jupiter's bid because they offered more minority contracts), I heard on the radio that if she steps down she wants her position replaced with another BLACK person. I'm trying to find out if thats true. That is completely rediculous. If a White politician requested that it would be on every news channel and sharpton would be agitating, as he usually does. What ever happened to the most qualified person and best for the county. When will the black politicians start working for all people, not just black people?

Who else is she suppose to represent? Have you seen how gerrymandered her district is?

I also thinking her sudden resignation has a little thing to do with the FBI digging deeper into the criminal actions of county commissioners and advising them they all need to testify when the hearings start.

Greene has been doing back door deals with builders for years.. sounds like the trash if finally being taken out
