Breakdown where the votes may go.
Based on this formula: votes equal flow of money.
Elliot - Very successful business man in the air conditioning business. Got into real estate development and on various boards regarding his business and building codes etc. Mayor of a town with about the same number of people contained in an average condo building.
He will get votes by those who are or wish to be like him, rich and successful.
Eric - Tax/family attorney. Volunteers his time on town events more then most. Served on town boards. Likeable guy who will get votes by those who like him and appreciate what he does for town.
Birute - Collage Professor, long time resident and former commissioner. Involved in town affairs for decades. She'll get long time resident votes, a great deal of the female vote and those wishing for stable town as the others are unknown in this area.
Only one seat is up and it takes 3 votes to start the flow of money on a 5 member board.
What kind of board is wished for? It's very simple, votes come from those who believe they will receive some form of benefit for their vote.
A look at the possible benefits, or more to the point, what direction the flow of money will most likely go
.
1-More development, more business and more parking,
2-Focusing on the residents by improving those areas.
3-Do little, but maintain and improve reasonably what we have.
I will pay attention to where the candidates stand on each.
Also pay attention on the how its done part because for 1 and 2 its possible taxes will be raised, the same or lowered depending on how it's done. Number 3 will most likely lower our taxes.
What direction would you like to see the money flow?
MY VOTE GOES TO CANDIDATE THAT WILL FOLLOW NUMBER 3 ABOVE.
Birute is most likely the best candidate for me to vote for.

Clottey should have ridden north to Palm City with McIntee and his spouse. She was nothing but a rubber stamp for anything Jerry and Jimmy wanted. And now she's the Furths' puppet and a large one at that. Forget? Hell no!

If you happen to look at the facts which are on line inside the prior meetings you will find out what an idiot you are in making such a stupid statement.

You have to be that bespectacled, sloppy, overweight ugly guy who hangs around the outer edge of the 101 Ocean bar. Wore the Obama badge in 2008. Pseudo intellectual. Piece of work.

I am tired of this.

All of this can be said about anybody sitting on the dais, any candidate, and the administration, and me.

Thinking like this is not progress of any kind.

Seriously pick anybody and I can write up something like this also.

But I will not.

Not because I am special but because the other side exists because no side has all the answers.

You have to respect the other side.

Feel the same.
It's the same people who manufacture this crap who are guilty of exactly the same thing.

If the same spoke about what was done on Commercial we would hear nothing but what mistakes were made and how much money was wasted.

I remember all the negative comments regarding the public safety building and now look at it with all the additional parking around it.

One can only imagine what would have been said about the recent purchase of the hotel to build a bathroom and a couple of parking spots on west El Mar drive.

Whenever I read those personal negative comments, always think the person saying it or writing it is actually venting about themselves - makes sense every-time.

Read the rant by Cole and how blind the view.

She starts out by saying she co chaired Clottey's campaigner and pretty got her in during her first run for office.

The she says in her own words that she called Clottey before every meeting to go over the agenda.

Then during her personal attack she says Clottey was not independent as she was alined with others.

So the only conclusion any reasonable person could make is if Clottey followed Cole's direction as others did then all is good, right or wrong by the way, but if not, she attacks with her personal blog to be seen by all.

This comes from the big bag of ego crap thinking I'm the boss of the commissioners.

Any reasonable person would look at the issue and ask how many people are in town and the answer would be about 6,000 and so therefore a figure of 1/6000th of a boss would be more to the truth.

Its just that some of them think they have a much higher value and that will always be a problem.

Irrelevant, product of the "past", non resident..and who cares. If she really wanted to keep the Town moving forward write positive things instead of nasty onesided hot air..

Why didnt she comment on how Sasser publicly stated "Thank you Penny Dodd for giving me the heads up before the meeting" about the dogs..thats a clear violation of sunshine and Ms Dodd was a conduit for her husband..

Your right. I played the tape back clear it did happen. Big Opps. Imagine if the same thing happened to McIntee? Double standards?

While reviewing I also heard all the credit given to Minnet which is undeserved.
The reef project was Marc Furth's push he got from former Mayor Wardlaw to Silverstone who placed it on the agenda.
The lowing of the tax rates was also Thompson to Silverstone who first proposed and lowered it.
The VFD which is the largest savings was first a hotel issue due the increase in room rates then to McIntee Silverstone. Minnot voted if not all times a great deal of the time agaist them. Its all on record.
Could go on, but thats past facts.

On the other side of the things I do think Minnet was mistreated a bit which looked bad because she was a she. Imagine If Minnet was a guy it would be a totaly different matter.
In the end Minnet didnt do a bad job, had it rough at times and deserves much credit for serving.

I agree, with clotty comes the evil trio, did you all forget so soon how Clotty was a rubber stamp for the evil ones. I keep saying evil because if you remember how the meetings were during this time you would have to agree. What is mr fleshman thinking, supporting Clotty, did he forget how hard he worked with Unite Our Town to remove these evil people, did he not go to the podium meeting after meeting to insult and swear that he would do everything he can to get rid of this evil trio. Now why would he support Clotty along with the furths, I guess he just forgot how it was....good luck if Clotty gets in.

Perhaps he is supporting Clottey because her election would send a message of "watch out only 2 seats needed in 2016 to change direction of the town?"

I personally think that such a message would do a ton of good. So maybe he is just being smart or good for the town. There is this possibility that you should entertain that he is good for the town.

I mean our taxes are still high and nothing changed over the last 4 years I think. Last time the millage rate was lowered was the Commission of"evil" Jerry, Jim and and Clottey. So deal with that.

Maybe they were not evil after all. All the other people elected since then said that our taxes are OK or low or they dont know or they dont care. Hence multi million projects without an increase in millage rate.

Hello our taxes are already high. Our taxes are not low. The millage rate is high when multiplied by property values. It had been for many years hence the reserves for projects.

I can explain if you are not sure if your taxes are high or low.

If your property taxes are high vote accordingly or ask the candidates if they think whether property taxes are high or low if you do not know how to vote.

If Commissioners think that our taxes are low then you will get more projects that "cost you nothing."
Sounds good to me

I'm for Clottey last night she made it clear she will get rid of the drunks and the music. Dinning should be the only thing going on outside other than town affairs. Orriana will get plenty of help to stop the music coming from the Pier ,Aruba and the grill. Good luck Birute I m on your team! Shut them down.

Guess when your losing sling some crap and hope it sticks, yes Clottey won hands down, but show me where in the meeting this question or statement was.... I taped the meeting and have also spoken to the candidate which confirmed my dealing in reality that it never happened or was said.

So start with a truth and mix in a lie and see of if sticks, almost like the I think the VFD should be in Sea Ranch so funny it makes my sides hurt from laughter at the mere thought he thought we would believe it, also the I have been everywhere man but know nothing but conjecture if you buy a hotel you must have a casino I can fight in mind.

So sling away and to dear two faced Barbara I am sure they wait with baited breath for your mug so arrive each meeting you so dare to write. You might like to remind her the dog pooped in the back seat where she sat.

Evil? Dont think so. Think about it. They get paid about 10K a year for what is a full time job.
The to get insulted by the likes of people like you due to a lack of intelligences to understand the issues because you're to lazy to form an educated opinion. So what ends up happening is you hear a couple of words, more likely from others how are actually evil and choose to believe it because it brings out your inter-child

The meetings back then were real in your face debates on many important issues. I enjoyed them.
I personally rather have that then a bunch of smiling faces ripping me, you and everyone else off.

It amazes me how it's OK to take advantage of people as long as your nice about it. Not the kind of world I want to be a part of.

Back then I knew what was going on because everything was front and center. They got many good things done in an ugly way at times, but it got done.
The main reason our taxes are not even higher is because of them. The beautification of Commercial could not have been done if they didn't do what they did.

What should've happened is spend half as much as they did on Commercial and then fixed up Elmar Drive where its really needed.

It's all about voting for someone to spend my money and may they do it wisely. How it looks I could care less.

The last thing I want is all of them thinking the same way on every issue. Clottey will at least bring another view. I hope.
