Lolita - This forum has been obsolete for almost 1 week now. You must really enjoy speaking to yourself. It's great you felt the necessity to reply to StevenCC exactly 1 week later. Don't be offended when he doesn't reply.

Steve,

At least that Council Member works for a living and, takes care of his family. Didn't know living with family is a sin or something to hide and...if this is a council person and serving us, good luck to him/her to walk away content with some of the people they have to deal with.

Thought the article was about the new convention center. Some of the quotes seemed out of context for this article.

Kirsten - "Personally, I think it would take more than a single term as Mayor of Cape Coral to be a serious contender for the Governor's mansion but, if that is her dream, more power to her." My response.. "It's good to dream, but some dreams are sometimes JUST FANTASIES". It's all part of growing-up.

As a renter she does not pay any property taxes or her little minion other fellow council member. I think he still lives with his mommy while he bags at CVS.

I have said from the beginning this Mayor is an amateur and not up for the job. She cares about one person and that is herself. Oh and yes Madam Mayor I am very glad your trailer trash but does not live next to me. Glad you and Leon were such great backers of the Fire Assessment Tax since you did not have to pay it. Did not disclose that at the time did you? Incompetent and not who I would want to represent us in our capital or anywhere else.

I give credit to those 2 homeowners who got up to speak against the proposed Ordinance 9A-1. If that had been me, I would have NO DOUBT "lost it", & probably been escorted out with my response to the mayor, when Madam Mayor insisted on making the comment of "MY GOD, I HOPE I NEVER LIVE NEXT DOOR TO EITHER OF YOU!", prior to handing it over to council for their comments. Our Mayor was out-right dis-respectful, yet she wonders why she is NOT RESPECTED by many in the Cape!! Gee, I wonder why. RESPECT is a two-way street.

Certainsmile - Yet another BLACK-EYE for our City, compliments of our Madam Mayor!! I too sent out the link to family & friends up north and the responses have been "dis-belief" that any mayor would make the comments she did on Monday evening. "DICRIMINATION" We can't manage to get business to come here, yet she is trying to discourage folks from retiring here!!! Not looking good for The Cape. Word travels fast and negative publicity always circulates quicker than positive. That's life!!!

I sent the link from August 3 council meeting, (thirty minutes into ordinance 9A1)to 4 couples considering retirement cities. This is another place where the mayor says passionately that she does not want more age 60+ people. If more older people come to our city then she stated that she would be moving! She wants the average age to be 35 in this city. Disgusting to publicly express disdain for others based on age alone. As governor would she tell retirees that they are not welcome in the entire state? Watch her say these words at a council meeting. This is after 2 residents stated objections to multi family homes in their neighborhood. She told them, "My god, I hope I never live next door to you!" Agree with her and be young or be prepared to be ridiculed and told that you are not welcome in Cape Coral. Disgusting!

Kirsten - I have NO PROBLEM with anyone following their dreams, but they should do it on their own dime. I did!! The tax payers of Cape Coral shouldn't be paying for our mayor to travel around & establish her future dreams of Governor. I believe that the tax payers would prefer if she pursued her dreams at her expense. No free rides!!!!

Kirsten - What I did hear with my own 2 ears was Monday evening council meeting and our mayor's disdain regarding 60 year olds was crystal clear. This was the second time that I actually heard her say it and both times it's on record! I also heard her comment to the 2 homeowners who opposed having multi-family dwellings placed in their 1 family home neighborhood. Her comment she spewed before turning it over to council for their comments was totally un-called for & very unprofessional. Definitely NOT going to help her with her greater political aspirations!!

Ahhh, so you are trusting the word of an anonymous person to stand behind the validity of a statement. You are far more trusting that I am. Personally, I want to hear it MY OWN ears before i pass anything along as a truth. Perhaps it would have even a tad of credibility if Disgusted1 had a name so one could very whether or not the conversation took place with that person. Regardless, what is the sin to have greater political aspirations? Personally, I think it would take more than a single term as Mayor of Cape Coral to be a serious contender for the Governor's mansion but, if that is her dream, more power to her. I still dream of being an FBI agent. Dreams and goals are not the enemy.

Kirsten - Quote on Aug.7th from DISGUSTED1 "I've actually heard the rumor from several different sources, including straight from her own lips. "One term as mayor and then I'm looking at running for governor." Far as I know, she hadn't imbibed before she spoke . . ."

Aug. 6th LTE post. QUOTE "You want to have nightmares? Read the News-Press interviews of the current candidates for Council. Scary. Very scary. Not one has a clue, so they'll get along just peachy keen with our CLUELESS Mayor who, by the way, HAS HER EYE on the GOVERNOR'S MANSION. Yep!! Heard it through the grapevine." - It appears our mayor has been travelling on the tax payers dime to assist her with her future endeavors in the POLITICAL arena. Her position in our city government was ONLY a STEPPING STONE for what she really wants. However, I strongly feel that her narcissism & her anger-management issues will undoubtedly hold her back.

Game Changer for sure. So pleased I sold my house on Pelican Blvd south of the Parkway. Beautiful median has to be removed, 11000 estimated vehicle trips per week. Taxpayers get to cover all the expenses. What a future we have, o boy. Let us not forget the great marketing opportunity. Come to Cape Coral where getting drunk is our Olympic past time, our bars are open until 4am. Quite a future the City has.

A Conference Center in the Cape is definitely GREAT NEWS & I highly doubt that anyone would disagree with that. I am however, a little concerned about the re-paving costs. IF the county doesn't pickup the $500,000 cost of repaving, that would leave the tax payers of Cape Coral responsible for that $500,000 bill. That's a nice chunk of change!!!
