What is wrong with these elected people?

Since ONLY Coconut Road was speciified and the land owned by the developer is along Coconut Road this is problem.

Donates $$ to the guy's campaign and then the developer gets a road SPECIFICALLY designated for the project.

Are all the members of MPO corrupt?

Who nominated these losers to be on the board? If they're your people...how about questioning your apointee?

Lee County officials wake the hell up. That road is to benefit one person and one person only - a DEVELOPER.
Carl Hiaason had it right - only in Florida do elected officials continually rape the public, and usually with a smile on their faces.
In Florida there is no shame.

Hey MPO tell Young to take his $10M and stick it where the Florida sun don't shine.
