"Mcvoy keeps escalating his claims about his involvement with sober home resolutions. Meanwhile, I can find nothing indicating he has had any involvement at all.
At the Bryant Park Forum he claimed to be active with sober home legislation. * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkhl2fkYLE8
In his closing at the Playhouse he then claimed he “provided leadership on interdepartmental and inter agency cooperation” on sober homes (whatever that means). *https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkhl2fkYLE8Because she doesn't know or understand the facts nor did she contact Commissioner McVoy to clarify his statements at the two forums, the following is a brief explanation submitted by his campaign that might set her mind at ease:
"It means that while other commissioners did nothing but wring their hands, the city attorney did nothing but make excuses for inaction, and city departments that could have worked together instead operated in silos, McVoy at least made PBCFR, PBSO, utility management, city attorney, city manager, William Waters, and Code Enforcement personnel meet together in the same room to establish a cohesive plan of action. Because of this meeting that he facilitated, these departments are now sharing information that will ensure that sober homes have rental/business licenses and the city knows where they are, and so does PBSO.
He is also pulling together a series of ordinances similar to those enacted in other cities [Click here] that will establish a moratorium on new sober homes.
Christopher is not afraid to stand up for residents, unlike our other commissioners who are MIA on this issue. McVoy does not call the Palm Beach Post every time he helps his constituents, or pat himself on the back in public meetings like some others do so often. He simply does his job."
