Eric... Hello? Maybe you know... Did the Mayor sign the document? He doesn't know how his signature got on the document. What's up with Leetz? Wow!! More bizarre statements!!

You want us to support this sort of chaos? Really?

Mr. Kuehn, voting to put you on the dais was perhaps the most telling reason this Mayor should not be re-elected. You speak of experience, what experience did you possess when your cronies placed you in that seat? Using your logic, you should have refused the appointment for the good of the city and insisted they choose someone else with experience, am I correct? Yet the beauty of this system is that this is America where everyone gets their chance to serve if they have the passion to run and make a difference, something you never did on either point. Don't preach experience is needed now, when every single one of your former dais mates never brought any with them to the seats they occupied, and that includes the city manager's chair also.

Yes, let’s reelect a man who testified in court he didn’t sign a council document, only to discover he actually did sign the document. Weather he committed perjury or just didn’t have the cognitive ability to remember what he did, is this someone we want as mayor? Yes, let’s give 4 more years to a man who as a sitting mayor was party to a frivolous lawsuit who sued every taxpayer in the city, only to ask the entire council to permit the city to settle with him so he wouldn’t incur a financial burden. Sure, this is the character of someone we need leading our city.

Yes, let’s reelect a man who was an active part of the FAB5 who attempted to commandeer political control of the city and place their friends in influential government positions. It didn’t take long for the voting public to see through that ruse and kick to the curb the other appointed and elected conspirators. Now it’s Sully’s turn.

Sullivan was a mistake 4 years ago. Let’s not make the same mistake this year.

I'm afraid after the two articles today Sullivan and Leetz cannot stand by their statements. Going to come down hard on them.

Thursday, Sullivan insisted he never said he “did not sign the document” in court or used the word “forged.”

The court transcripts attribute this to Sullivan on Page 34: “As far as that Sunshine document, I don’t know how my signature managed to find its way on that document, if it is, in fact, my signature. I refused to sign that up on the dais that day.”

Kirsten... You are sooo right! What kind of cute little word games is Sullivan try to play here? When you say you do not know how your signature got on a document, you are in turn stating you did not sign the document. cut and dry, GAME OVER!!! We know based on video the signature was not under duress, we have a witness that saw him sign, watched the Clerk pick it up, and then her next move was to hand it to that very witness a couple of short steps away.

Next comes FDLE, as a taxpayer I have to know. If forgery really did happen then someone needs to be charged. If the Mayor is Failing to tell the truth It needs to be investigated by the which ever law enforcement would over see this serious situation. Someone has made a bed here... Time to sleep in it.

I am not real impressed with Burch but I watched the city debates. I wish there were a better option but the debate did sway me to vote for Burch rather than Headd. Headd just does not seem up to the task. Also based on the debates I don’t believe Sawicki, and especially Leon is up to the task. McGrail’s past performance proves he is not. So I voted Sullivan, Leetz, Burch, and Williams. The sad reality is I am not overly impressed with any of them but these seem to be the lesser of the two evils I had to pick from in each race. Something needs to change to attract higher quality candidates.

Does the following definition remind anyone of someone?

Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary: Perjury--The crime of intentionally lying after being duly sworn to tell the truth by a notary public, court clerk, or other official. This false statement may be made in testimony in court, administrative hearings, depositions, or answers to interrogatories, as well as by signing or acknowledging a written legal document (such as an affidavit, declaration under penalty of perjury, deed, license application, or tax return) known to contain false information. Definition provided by Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary. Well?

Hello, Eric! Can you not hear the sounds of the distant drums? You were so inept, innane, inexperienced, and limited that all you added to meetings when you were on the council was platitudes delivered with condesention. Yes, Eric, we "had our listening ears on." You did not DARE run for your own seat, having been unduly appointed, and we should take your word for anything? Hello,

The entire media ploy in the court room, it surely backfired. Perjury. No use for it. Read the 43 pages. What a bunch of liars and egomaniacs. Certainly not voting for Sullivan or Leetz.

Eileyn Sobeck-Bador spare us your double talk and totally misleading comments. You were never going to vote for Sullivan or Leetz. What a joke you are! You have spent the last year or more bashing them on your ridiculous Facebook page, which is the most bigoted page on the internet!

In very plain words are simply a way for the local city council to by pass the homestead exemption. If the property owners do not realize this and act to have the levying and assessment authority removed from the city council then in a very short time the homestead exemption in Florida will be worthless, because every-time they want to get money from the homeowners they will have an other levy or assessment. That is the great experiment that councilman Mc Grail referred to. Mark my word your homestead exemption will be totally worthless. If you people do not wake up and limit they amount of money that the city council can take out of your pocket (which is what the homestead exemption is all about) the will continue to treat you like the mindless cash bovines they think you are.

continued: The first step is to remove the socialist six from the city council and replace them with individuals that stand for small efficient government that is fiscally responsible and has the best interest of ALL the citizens of Cape Coral in mind first, foremost and always. Not the crowd we have now, they have their own agenda and only work to further that. Forty years of mismanagement is enough for this city, it is time that the insanity stops. Make your choice are you going to take a stand for your rights or are you going to continue to be a Cash Cow for this city.

Additionally I want to remind the voters of a statement made in October of 2010 about water fee’s by one Council member in “Chris Chulakes-Leetz said: “charging these fees would not be a “waste” for lot owners; instead, it would be a “transfer of equity. I think property owners would understand the city is moving forward for the “big picture.”

Any politician that wants to “transfer Equity” is a socialist

In a previous LTE Disgusted1 states "Where have you been the last four years?" Well I have been watching the Road Ahead Gang drag this city into the sewer with their lies, witch hunts and overall anti common sense agenda. Can't wait till Tuesday when we will lance the last two boils that have been the cause of the distress so the city may heal!!!!

Most people have already voted at this point. It is nearly impossible to make a prediction in this election but it has caused an already divided city to become even more so. I am one of very few that didn’t vote a straight line on the obvious sides. One thing that I think can be predicted is that both sides are going to have some disappointments which will leave the tax and spend philosophy in place. Hopefully this election will provoke some change to attract quality candidates. It is so disappointing to have to choose between such unqualified and poor candidates. City government should consist of a full-time well paid mayor and four full-time council members.
