Update: The charter members of the Smirking Turkey Society voted December 5, 2023 to censure Commissioner Krista Keating Joseph for First Amendment protected activity, hiring a former Florida Supreme Court Justice and his law firm. For thirty pieces of silver (bill still not disclosed), these coarse Commissioners are paying corporate lawyers to do their bidding on behalf of billionaires. Disgusting. Vote them out.
From November 25, 2023:
Soulless greedy corporations (like those controlled by billionaires HERBERT and JOHN PEYTON and half-a-billonaire developer-Senator TRAVIS JAMES HUTSON): kindly keep your filthy mitts off our laws. Kindly keep your messy feculent footprints off our zoning, planning, forests, wetlands and wildlife.
Enough GQP flummery, dupery and nincompoopery. For 23 years, every single vote in favor of overdevelopment has been by Republican County Commissioners, swathed in indifference and funded by greedy corporate interests. Exhibit A: Senator-developer TRAVIS JAMES HUTSON, celebrated with his heyboys, including Clerk of Courts BRANDON J. PATTY and Commissioner CHRISTIAN WHITEHURST. Look at those smug countenances, Republican Lords of All They Survey.

They've had their turn. Now it's our turn. It's time for them to go.
