DAVID BARTON CORNEAL with lawyer ELLEN AVERY-SMITH, ROGERS-TOWERS (former partner and former law firm of the late corrupt GEORGE MORRIS McCLURE, who turned informant to ensnare former County Commission Chairman THOMAS G. MANUEL for taking $60,000 bribe after ROGERS-TOWERS reported McCLURE and associate for not sharing $100,000 in fees McCLURE called "gratuities" with ROGERS-TOWERS).
Threatening members of the St. Augustine Historic Architectural Review Board June 16, 2015, rebarbative Republican ex-Mayor DONALD CRICHLOW -- who began illegally lobbying former colleagues less than a month after leaving office on December 1, 2014 -- said without cramming an unwanted hotel in the Old City South neighborhood, there will be no $100,000 spent on new windows and no fancy restoration -- "That's gone," he intoned. That's blackmail. That violates CORNEAL's public promises, under oath. That's Historic Preservation terrorism. That's a stench in the nostrils of our Nation's Oldest City. As the Record's development reporter, Stuart Korfhage, reported June 17, 2015 (anniversary of Watergate break-in), architect CRICHLOW contradicted CORNEAL's prior promises, stating:
"Architect Donald Crichlow said many of the improvements on the current site plan — like a new masonry wall on the north side of the property and a new porch for the Worcester House — will not be done if the PUD is not approved by the commission.
“You can’t do it. There’s not enough return on investment with the apartment scenario that there is with the inn scenario,” he said. “So many of the things that we are proposing for the inn will not be there.
“The investment will be greatly reduced in the property, not only on the landscape features but also with the interior features.”
