Time to Cut Pretense of "Decorum"

St. Johns County's all-Republican Commissioners, Administrators and Sheriff "Spends-a-Lot" DAVID SHOAR with $140 pair of scissors at dedication of $16 million County Health and Human Services Building.

We don't need lectures on "decorum" from five all-Republican County Commissioners who refuse to do their jobs without fear or favor of corrupt contractors and developers and inept county bureaucrats.

County Commissioners May 3 repeatedly tried to cut short the presentation of Treasure Beach residents about the breach of contract, breach of warranty, bad dredging work, inept County supervision of its contract, bad contract-writing, flummery, dupery, noncompoopery, waste, fraud, abuse, misfeasance, malfeasance, nonfeasance of County Project Managers, who referred concerned neighbors to the County Attorney.  Maladroit County Commissioners praised their awful staff and insulted the concerned Treasure Beach residents, each assessed $10,000 for $3,000,000 worth of bad contractor work by GATOR DREDGING.  Residents were lectured pompously about how they should not applaud (which is protected activity under the First and Ninth Amendments).  Later, Commissioners airily insulted the residents for having shown a lack of "decorum."  Decorum is not the issue -- it's a failure of democracy when County Commissioners show such shameful, disdainful bias.
