@lightswitch: Once again your account of transpired events, "open mic," are riddled with lies. You, lightswitch are a very lonely and bitter man...with NO life at all. Enjoy the next 4 years, we will.

Switch. Don't know what you problem is with Mrs. Prince, but surely her pride concerning where she formerly lived should never be smeared by you or anyone. Good for her that she stands up proudly speaking about her former State. Too bad, all of you from different parts of the country throw rocks at Cape Coral and are doing your best to destroy it under the guise of "proper information". yet you continue to live here. If you are so unhappy here and are having difficulty getting your ugly messages across, there is a simple solution...the next explosion of housing, etc. is around the corner...take your profits and find somewhere else. You sure don't like it here.

I can't wait until Mrs. Prince gets up again to tell us about West Virginia and how well that state is doing. All false information about the 4th poorest state in the union!

She must be a trip to listen to when the "Florida Flash" comes back to visit. She and Old Ed think they struck oil in little ol Cape Coral.

Most see that the city manager is a person who has not been timely with preparing information for city council meetings on more than a few instances and demanding votes from council on that information.

He is certainly is not transparent in his tactics as he was caught on open microphone to city staff. When told by employee the city council will never go for that. Szerlag. "It is buried so deep they will never find it". He has about 25% of the residents who are retired receiving MAYBE a 1.5% increase in their benefits and he is instrumental in a &% increase in electricity, $100 to $200 for a fire assessment, on top of a natural increase in real estate tax. Now let's talk about the next couple of segments of residents with families who work in the private sector. He and his henchmen could give a*****about them, the 30% of kids the federal government states are in poverty in the city and are not being properly fed. What is their answer? More food drives. The information

Unfortunately Switch: the person, Leetz, calling for the CM's dismissal as inept and spends too much money, is the same person who quickly recommended giving away Academic Village for the Golf Course. The owners quickly countered on the idea, no way, and they want $13m. Now Leetz says yay, pay the $13m for thegolf course, which comes off the tax rolls since it would be owned by the City, then the City would have to spend more money to do something with the property, etc. etc. This is the same person, when the Mayor said, in court, I did not sign that document and now is starting to say maybe I did. But Leetz said he knew the Mayor didn't sign it. Honesty Integrity, etc. that's what Leetz would like you to think. Szerlag doesn't need to go, it's Leetz.

Szerlag came in with a lot on his plate says Erbrick!

She helped fire a city manager "For No Cause" ho had even more on his p0late. IE. NO ACCOUNTING PROCEDURES in place and no money in the city treasury and more uncertainty of where the world economy was going let alone Cape Coral, Fl.

When a city manager is asked a question about HIS fire dept. budget and he states I don't know. Especially when the answer was brought up in his consultant's whizz bang colorful $60,000 spreadsheet presentation. What is the fire dept. actual percentage of calls versus non fire calls. The answer was 17% actual fire calls and 83% non fire/medical EMS calls. However there is a tidal wave of residents who know this council will rate their hat rack boy. It is also known how this council will be decimated when the bulk come up for reelection in November of 2015. Keep this name in mind. McGrail Media, Inc.
