Hear ye Hear ye there are NO homes for RENT in Marty McClain's district?

Those wanting him to finish what he started? How could you begin to even think of trusting him?

If he would lie about this he would lie, cheat, and steal. The man has no character and showed he is as shallow as a dried up puddle.

He has the MEANS to play by the RULES and CHOSE not to do that!

I bet he is "RAILING" now!

I posted along time ago McClain was a LIAR. I don't think I posted he was a FRAUD.

The charter is vague! Typical statement from a wanna be who is not going to get elected to that district. Right John?

Keep attempting to change the rules until they fit the situation!

The guy is a Liar and a Fraud> Worse he knew the rules better than most and defied them. The guy is a lowlife as well as a LIAR and a FRAUD.

I stated he would not be reelected a long time ago. Best part he did this to himself. What a FOOL!

November, the Bad Reputation was caused by the FAB 5 and King. Put the blame at the correct door. This council has done more to fix the mistakes made by ALL the roadies since elected. Hang in there after Sept/Nov the best is yet to come!

@ Janet99, sorry but I have to disagree with you, the best clown show was King and the Fab 5 show.They kept trying to show who had the biggest Red Nose and lost the ring. Get a Life lady,your hate and vindictive ways are not allowed in our City anymore. We are Going forward in a progressive manner and will be waving at the trainwreck you guys are perching on.

Local liar McClain must go-is the charter not clear? You either live in the district or you don't. Whats the problem? If he had any class he would resign which means for sure he wont. The Cape Council Clown Show continues year after year.

My favorite moment was his allegation that this is "personal." Sorry. Not true. When you're in public office it's all out there for all of us to see. He should have done the honorable thing and resigned the minute the personal became public.

Well, McClain played let's make a deal. He will pretend to move into a new place in district one - and he threatened that no one in the city should be watching or checking. The rest of the council will ignore his already occurred charter violation. Let's see if this behavior will be condoned when others violate our charter.

CCC, in the same manner that I questioned the character of LTE writers Bill Deile & Lynn Rosko, you are patently wrong to highlight personal tragedy and hurl personal insults while commenting. You prove yourself to be no better than those you rail against. Hammer them with facts, not personal insults, or name calling, or alluding to personal tragedy. That is what THEY want, because they can win power if you get down in the mud with them.Show you are better than they are.

Super,

JJSully cannot be the mayor, since JJSully can string 5 words together in a coherent sentence, and the mayor cannot.

Certainsmile, those who know me know that I am a pretty rational and fair minded person. In similar circumstances, yes, I would feel the same if it was Leetz. Believe it or not, there have been occassions when I have "gone against the grain" to defend Mayor Sullivan. I don't care who it is; I will always state my opinion based on what I think is fair.

JJ Sully what is your fetish with hair? The best you can do is comment continuously on men's hair. Are you battling demons of desire?

Kirsten you are dead on right with your words. That is exactly what this is all about. We got it, now we don't want you to be able to earn it. The best they can come up with is ideas that have now been proven to not be effective.

I'm trying to decide if Sullivan is JJSully - would he really lower himself to say some of the things this writer has said about a fellow council member? Would he really use foul language in his posts? Would he really lower himself to praise Deile? Things that make you say "hmmmmm." And, if it is you, John, your days as mayor are numbered. Count on it.

For an attorney Bill, you sure are ignorant (lacking knowledge, stupid) of the Law (established rule of conduct) on this and many other things in the past.

You,Sir, should keep your hate of Cape Coral to yourself or move to some place that will make ALL of us happy.

Whoops. Just wanted to tell Eileyn that breaking news out of City Hall is that Menendez has asked for permission to hire outside counsel to help her with this issue.

Certain, I would let any of them finish out their term, short as it is. Do you really want another Eric Kheun debacle?

Maybe diily should move to district 1 to be humiliated again. Another picture of him and Lynn all alone at his "victory" celebration would be worth the aggravation

Kirsten, would your opinion of "let him stay" be the same if it were ANY member of council in a similar situation? I have the feeling that if it were councilman Leetz you would be demanding that he be removed. I bet it is more about the "who it is" than all the other reasons.

Removing him, appointing a replacement and getting that person up to speed will create more disruption than simply allowing him to finish out the last six months of his term. We know there will be up to four new council members this fall so council business will slow down during the learning curve. Thus, continuity of council during these last six months is critical. If this was done with the intent to be fraudulent, that would be one thing. But we have all experienced unforseeable life changes. I give kudos to councilman McClLain for attempting to finish what he started rather than bailing sooner when it would have been to his advantage to do so.

"Should this course of action be forced upon the City we will no doubt be treated to a lot of "lawyer talk"" Hi, Pot, THIS is the Kettle, You are BLACK. What does the City Attorney have to say in this matter, has she presented her opinion?

Although factually correct, you have once again shown a penchant to revel in another person's misery. A trait which you wear quite well. It also appears you forgot the lesson visited upon you in the last election, you know: What goes around comes around.
