This Town is on its way up after the last Mayor did nothing to help keep the area problems solved. Mayor Bennett is the kind of person we need as he is not afraid to face problems. We can now go to the Town Meetings and not have the fighting & yelling without getting anything accomplished. Our Town is back!! Way to go Troy!!!!!

You must be blind if you have not seen what has been happening to this town in the past year & a half. We need someone who is not afraid to take care of the people who are distroying this town with yard trash & etc. Things were not being done & the past Mayor didn't care. Complaints were not answered, just ignored. Town meetings were a joke with nothing being done. No I am not from Mag 1 or 2 and would not want to live there.

whoever voted for this guy, the town system is crooked and so is he. He states he owns the town sheriff. He is too old to be in office. He is of his rocker. Bet he won't be voted in again, unless he pays for it like he did illegaly last time....sad people can get away with it.
He didn't make the police force, so he thinks he'll rule and treat citizens like scum.

I am a resident that would like to say your comments are way off but we have experienced him repeatedly and I am saddened to say you are exactly right. He has become a glorified bully and he is hurting lives and families if you do not live according to his rules and vision. Troy Bennett has no compassion and he is not out for the people who actually live here - just those he wants within this community. I think we all know leaders that work to eliminate those that do not fit a specific image. It doesn't work well. I am so sorry he has happened to our town.

It has all been said here and in several other areas on the web, We all want Montverde to be a great place to live! But come on...Troy actually compaires himself to the President of the United States in an interview for a news artical. This man is mentally deranged, making threats to "turn peoples water off" if they don't submit to his demand in 72 hours! making threats to children on the streets, acosting and cusing at people on their own property, the list goes on and on. There is a right way and a wrong way to accomplish the same goals we all want for our town.
The law won't allow this type of person to own a gun, but we elect him mayor of our town. Wake up people. If you have had an encounter with Troy please send us an email explaining the situation to montverdemayor@yahoo.com We want to hear your complaints so we can put an end to this maddness Last time I looked at a map Montverde was in AMERICA, lets act like it!

Kay...Do you wake up in a new world every day ? This is AMERICA... Mr. Heathman was there to turn the corruption around that DOLTS LIKE YOU ENCOURAGE ... when he came into office , there was a HOSTILE COUNCIL that was out to manage the Town THEIR way WITH THEIR APPOINTED MAYOR.... THEY were not listening to THE PEOPLE and that is (( WHY )) Mr. Heathman ran for Mayor in the first place !!!... They IMMEDIATELY put a moratorium on spending so that NOTHING COULD GET DONE. THE only reason they approved $350. TO PUT WATER SEAL ON THE PARK DECKS IS BECAUSE THEY KNEW MR. HEATHMAN WOULD SPEND HIS OWN MONEY AND MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE THE A-HOLES THAT THEY ARE ... Mr. Heathman spent three thousand of his own money for and outside Lawyer to protect the Charter from an overthrow ... When the Council insisted that the Public Works Directer and the Town Clerk be certified , Ricky got certified and the Clerk was in the process ... When SATANS SPAWN slithered in to pick up where Heathman left off HE FIRED EVERYBODY and replaced them with a bunch of chicken squeeze ! So before you slober all over yourself for the GLITZ that you think has miraculously befallen you ... understand that PAY DAY is going to bite you in the *** you sappy eyed WITCH

This mayor is a bully. We live behind him and he doesnt want the children to playin their own yard. Finally had to tell him to not come back on our property. He seems to have an inflated ego that manifests itself into believing his time outside is more important than children playing. I imagine the people in Conn. would love to hear children laughing and playing outside. Who elected him?

Mr. Bennett claims to have a BA from UGA. Has anyone ever verified that? Someone should....just saying.

Not to worry about education claims in Lake County!

Our Tax Collector Bob McKee claimed all kinds of master's degree's
and such and he don't even have a high school diploma.

All you folks from New York know what it takes to get a Regents High School diploma? He claims to have one but it's all whited out and one sided.

Google Robert (Bob) McKee Lake Tax Collector and you can find the documents with his lies and all the different dates of birth he has used on government applications and such.

You can all bet Mr Bennett is in the sack with Bopb McKee and Sheriff Borders or he would not be there in the first place.

Only their friends seem to get "errected."

Answer to "who elected him?"

The culture of corruption that runs Lake County. And it is deeply entrenched in the leadership of Montverde Academy.

All these criminals are in the same sack together!

Kay , you are either very young , very shallow or too stupid for words ...

Dale Heathman was the best and most ((HONEST)) man that you could have ever had . The fact that he stepped up to the plate to break up the cronies and put up his own money to hire Mr. Levin , to be an outside source , to give the correct , LEGAL , interpretation of the Town's Charter , speaks VOLUMES to the decency and quality of character that you , OBVIOUSLY , are too limited in your capacity to understand .

I don't think you have ever met a man that could stand SO DECENTLY against a HOSTILE COUNCIL that glad handed a corrupt administration ... They put a moratorium on spending so that ANYTHING that got done in that Town came generously from his own spirit of humble , benevolence . If you live in Montverde , you , KAY, are a disgrace to the Town's proud image , and historic quality of decency , because , you have the NERVE to squall out against something you know NOTHING about.(( SHAME ON YOU ))

He's a NARCISSIST ... We don't know HOW he got elected since nobody will admit voting for him .

He told someone that they are not allowed to talk about politics and religion on TOWN property . That's why they don't have Pot Luck Dinners anymore .

Some of the Council gripes about him but they are the ones that voted on all the actions that have been taken . If they didn't , then , THEY allowed him to usurp authority over their ELECTED DUTY TO VOTE AND TAKE ACTION .

Obviously ... And the guy that brags about Council accomplishments over the past 6 years , now wants to run against him with the backing of a Real Estate Broker ! While a HUGE swath of property waits to be developed . The guy that has been on the Council for the past 6 years and supported Bennett's RE-Elections . What has changed ? Beware of wolves in Sheep's clothing. They don't fool Heathman. He don't rubber stamp things . He should have been there all the time . This, "GO ALONG TO GET ALONG " , crap , is going to destroy the Towns character and identity . What does KAY know about that ? nothing ... She wakes up in a new LaLa Land every morning . Dingbats like that think the Clown Car they drive is a Unicorn.
