Mobility contractor LITTLEJOHN's report proposes "development," disavowed by City Manager

It happened in America.

It happened in St. Augustine, Florida, at the January 23, 2017 City Commission meeting.

I was forbidden to ask a question -- no questions from the public were permitted or taken -- at the dog and pony show by dodgy mobility contractor LITTLEJOHN ASSOCIATES.

I was gaveled out of order for wanting to ask a question, pursuant to uncivil rules of procedure established under former City Manager WILLIAM BARRY HARRISS.

How gauche and louche.

But during a recess, City Manager JOHN PATRICK REGAN, P.E. was flummoxed, and tried to explain that the City did not endorse the page of the (unnumbered) report in which LITTLEJOHN sounds like it wants to represent the City in real estate negotiations with Broudy's Liquors or other landowners for development of an intermodal transportation facility -- definitely not in the scope of secretive LITTLEJOHN's work:

Phase 2 will identify a handful of sites for targeted redevelopment and initiate the conversation with suitable developers. These sites will serve as catalysts for the surrounding areas, inciting a paradigm shift through good design, promoting a walkable, bikeable city, embracing the unique character of St. Augustine

(Red in original, to match REGAN's red face when I finally got to ask the question)

You've got to watch these guys.  Every single day of our lives.

Who initiated this study?

How much did it cost?


How much is John Regan's salary and how much is his retirement package worth?

How much is WILLIAM BARRY HARRISS getting each month of your tax dollars to pay for his self approved lavish retirement?

The answers might give some insight as to why these creeps don't want you to ask questions.

Keep on pretending!
