Sends out e-mail fatwa endorsing himself: Self-serving REALTORS® CEO AE/CEO Victor J. Raymos, RCE, CRS, ABR
St. Augustine & St. Johns County Board of REALTORS® AE/CEO Victor J. Raymos, RCE, CRS, ABR has sent out an e-mail fatwa endorsing himself using REALTORS® time, equipment and funds. Endorsing himself for Airport Authority seat, to which he was originally appointed by Gov. RICHARD LYNN SCOTT.
Oh, and he's also endorsing Jeb Smith for County Commission -- Jeb has no opposition and will not be on the ballot.
Our local REALTORS® disorganization is a big 'ole joke, part of the problem of wetland-killing, clearcutting overdevelopment in St. Augustine and St. Johns County.
Will anyone question this guy's ethics

The Board of Directors approved The RPAC Committee’s decision to recommend Jeb Smith for County Commission, District 2 and me for the St Augustine Airport Authority, Group 2. Florida Realtors® has agreed with the Board’s decision.
As you may know, Governor Scott appointed me to the St Augustine Airport Authority, on October 24, 2017. That appointed term will end on January 2, 2019. As a result, I am running to retain that seat on the Airport Authority. My election will not be on the Primary election but will be on the General election on November, 6, 2018.
I am also on the 5-year Master Plan Advisory Committee for the Airport Authority. There is a lot on the line for the future direction for the Airport and the economic development of the 2,200 acres the Airport owns west of US 1. The Board voted to support my election in order to continue to have input on these important discussions and decisions.
I am asking for your support for my election to continue to serve on the Airport Authority.
