Why would County Commission discuss a referendum on slot machines, which remain illegal here?
Undue influence of corporate lobbyists, perhaps?

Dear Messrs. McCormack & Wanchick and Commissioners:
A. All requested documents are disclosed on the County's website; and
B. The Florida Supreme Court issues a pro-slot machine decision on the issue, e.g., one that finds that BOTH the referendum AND slot machines are legal here.
5. Failing that, this item should never be discussed --- its inclusion on our July 19th BCC agenda is an unseemly sign of undue corporate lobbyist influence and corruption of our one-party county government, which must be ended at once.
