Stunson can go forward spending money on a study but cant be bothered with Phase 1 studies when strong-arming business's changing zoning until a business almost dissolve's then making an offer on it..with taxpayers dollars.

Look at what Stunson has done, REALLY LOOK at it..he is making a mess of everything..
Jeez people, look at the crime reports for last night alone in Oakland Park:
Get rid of the riff raft before you start building targets for them..oh I forgot the useless building Stunson bought for a police substation, sits empty..

A $125,000 for a feasibility study? For an arts center?

In this era of municipalities scrambling for money, why on earth would anyone even consider an arts center, unless it's for personal gain.

Who going to pay for maintenance and basic costs of this white elephant? Taxpayers of course.

How about a $125,000 for teachers, police, the needy? No, we need an arts center. What a bunch of BS!

The day Oakland Park looks like Ponte Vedra is the day Pigs will fly.

What is this idiot thinking?

Remember Stunson wants the credit for Riverwalk..this indeed turned out to be a money pit.

Stunson got 13 million from the CRA grants...where is it?
Where is the return on investment?
Stunson knows how to file for Grants, he just doesnt know how what to do with them.I think he and Madoff are related..pushing piles of money around until there is none left.

The citizens of Oakland Park need to understand that Stunson runs the city on a wing and a prayer.

A good successful city manager looks at the big picture for his city, takes into a myriad of events and circumstances when determining which route that city needs to go in order for its citizens to have a good quality of life. Stunson does none of these things. He impulsively has a vision that may or (in Oakland Parks case) may not be able to come to fruition due to its locale or its relationship to other cities or a change in the economy. Stunson doesn't take any of these aspects into consideration when guiding Oakland Park...His resume' is a disaster, his watch over the city is blind sighted by his own greed and circumstance. He consistently bites the hands that feed the city. But his arrogance sends me into a tailspin, a successful city manager takes the time and has the inclination to research other cities and experts (which can be done for free by the way) we pay alot of money to various institutes who research many different aspects of government, the economy etc. Successful cities utilize these facts opinions and suggestions before they go off half cocked and commit the city to financial suicide. Fire Stunson, be done with him and cut the losses. To pay a self serving entity 125 thousand dollars to make suggestions on a master plan that due to the state of the economy is outdated, will be underfunded and not a priority to the heartbeat of this city is ludicrous.
