Just filed ADA complaint with USDOJ re: City of St. Augustine's failure and refusal to provide adequate, 24/7 restrooms for our five million visitors. While the itty-bitty-City alleges a public health crisis caused by public urination/defecation by panhandlers, our City and two corrupted ex-Mayors helped cause the problem by failing to provide 24/7 access to City-owned restrooms at 81 St. George Street, where LEN WEEKS and JOE BOLES enjoy no-bid, below-market rate lease of lucrative commercial property subleased to Florida Cracker Cafe and Savannah Sweets. Filed similar complaint against University of Florida, requesting appointment of a mediator from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service.
City refused to allow public comment at February 26, 2018 hearing in response to "evidence" and "testimony" advanced by $25k hired gun MICHAEL KAHN, hired to write panhandler ordinance because City Attorney ISABELLE CHRISTINE LOPEZ is maladroit and ineffectual.
My lawyer, Jack Spence, sent a letter to City warning it was illegal to deny public comment.
As Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1800:
"I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
