Kevin D. Thompson of the Palm Beach Post wrote an article on last Tuesday's city commission meeting in Lake Worth, a meeting that I call--
The meeting from hell.
Commissioner Christopher McVoy, concerned about the lack of transparency on behalf of the city to give all the voters all of the available information to make an informed decision on a debt obligation for 30 years, tried to discuss and get out certain facts on the General Obligation Bond. This bond is on the ballot on November 8th. He was shot down by Maxwell and Triolo at every opportunity and not allowed to speak.
In this week's Lake Worth Herald, Mark Easton derides McVoy for saying that the bond will cost $70 million (Actually McVoy made a guesstimate of $75). Our Finance Director said it would cost more like $69 million.
Now I ask, who is irresponsible? It's no wonder that only 6% of people trust the press.
