Burch responds

October 25, 2013

To the editor: There they go again, I take greater exception to Pete Brandt accusing me of distorting my record and of being “a spender” in an opinion piece published on Oct. 18th....

lynn- I am going to vote tomorrow. I asked you a couple of weeks ago for your considered opinion regarding your support of the individuals you named, but you have not yet responded. I still have decisions to make regarding the races. Given your apparent strong support of those you've named, I again ask you to please provide me your thoughts on why I should vote for those you support. I am open to your thoughtful feedback.

Do not fall for this diatribe put out by Burch.

He needs to take bismuth subsalicylate for his constant diarrhea of the mouth.

VOTE FOR SULLIVAN, LEETZ, HEADD AND WILLIAMS FOR A BALANCED COUNCIL ON NOV 5th

Haha...Pete B. just had a two column just two weeks ago. Lee Mars a long diatribe, etc. etc. Switchy, the 110 million was the referendum. It failed. Swallow it.They ended up building for $19m that's the fact jack. Really, got anything more recent than 4and 5 years ago? Oh wait, you're group votes no, so nothing of any significance got done (they didn't do:Pine Island Road, done by others long ago, they had nothing to do with the VA Clinic, others did it long ago, etc. etc. Nada darling.

IF JIM BURCH WAS SO TALENTED AND SO RESOURCEFUL.

Tell me why was he defeated by 63% of the voters who voted?

It is no question for me I watched him help design part of a water/sewer system for his wonderful customer the CITY OF CAPE CORAL.

Request to be mayor (with NO vote only his expertise input on votes) and not be abler to vote on the biggest construction utility project in the state at that time? He sold the residents short and out!

He also sold that business well into his four year term. Why how convenient and with the city as its customer.

Come on the voters are not that STUPID to bring this guy onto council AGAIN?

Jim,

You hit hard and true and they are scared to death. They worked hard i.e. McClain, now they see you mowing down the opposition and they know what is coming. Someone not only with experience, but some one who fights back with the facts. Go get em tiger.

Well, if he can get under Mrs. Rosko's and Switchy's skin he's got my vote!!! Whenever you see Lightswitch resort to sighting minute detail and not challenging the meat of a claim you know Switchy has been left with no ammo and that he has been exposed as a halftruther. One thing about our Switchy, he never ever let facts and real numbers get in the way of his claims.

@Lynn..lightbulb,JJ Sully..why don't you take a page of your rag book,fold it up into a little paper plane and fly away. North preferably. Leipold should have laid out the groundwork for the teaparty, by now.. Bashing Jim Burch wont solve the problems that exist for each of you,but he will correct the bad decisions that your rag cm created.He will fix the problems created by Brandt,Deile and Kuhen, using his personal experiences of working well with the business leaders, across the bridge and those at both State and Federal levels. Thanks for showing those that read these posts that your hate and discontent is not the road they wish to follow any longer. Now, why don't each of you explain to us why you supported the plan to bring this city to financial ruin? There will never be any forgiveness for any of those involved (we are aware of those that were)for the Web Of Deceit created by Sullivan and his merry men. We are Moving Forward in this city with Burch being part of it.

Actually Angel, most rag supporters have trouble putting one sentence together. Lynn Rosko is a tea party hack

Burch you were a failure the first time, raising our taxes 93%. You are still a failure. You had your change and just like Boyd we have had enough of you. Useless, incompetent and the only thing you can do is run your mouth.

The Breeze shocks me by allowing this manifesto to take up an entire page to answer a LTE with the permitted amount of words!

WHY????????????????????

He should have paid for an AD!

What anyone else can answer in 50 words or less Burch takes 10,000 words or more!

Remember when he was on Council, the meetings went on forever and ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He lost the last time he ran for relection by 63%. HIS REPUTATION PRECEEDS HIMSELF!!!

Last night he bantered around $19 million for the police station the week before he stated $20 million.

See the media from back then and you'll see the first cost for the police station was $110 million, Then refigured to $80 million. The construction contracts may have been $20 but the entire cost was over $80 million and was $100 million before it was rebid. Next he will be telling us he brought in the laying of the sod was $2000 and the mat at the front door was only $100. Another flawed retread!!!!!!!!!!!!

What! Have you read the diatribes of the RAGS, mostly Brandt and Deile?

Most of the rest of the RAGS do not have the attention span to write more than a few RAG talking points

One would wonder if the Breeze charged Burch to print his Manifesto. Are all the candidates afforded this much print space, very unlikely. The Breeze is just the soap Box for Burch the Union bag man.
