Commissioner TODD DAVID NEVILLE a/k/a "ODD TODD" once again shows his unfitness to be Mayor of St. Augustine. He excuses nonperformance by the lobbyists hired by his running dog, City Manager JOHN PATRICK REGAN, P.E. Hiring lobbyists, the City bet on corruption. It lost. It needs to re-think its business plan. That "plan" is predicated on Tallahassee legislators doling out moola by endless begging. Last year, the Governor vetoed some $275,000 for West Augustine sewers while signing $2,882,000 for restoring storm-clogged Summer Haven River for rich folks. Last year, I filed a civil rights complaint about this discrimination by Governor RICHARD LYNN SCOTT, referred by by DOJ to EPA's Office of Civil Rights, which interviewed me.
NO RESPONSE from anyone to the fact that our vaunted lobbyists failed yet another year. Time for Commissioners to support a St. Augustine National Historical Park and National Seashore study. time for Commissioners to stop their stinkin' thinkin', their negativity on federal help, federal planning and federal funding, while placing all their eggs in one basket -- noblesse oblige from Flori-DUH legislators.
