We of little faith

July 28, 2017

Nearly two months after the city of Cape Coral announced that “in the spirit of co-operation,” it was dropping its complaint with the Florida Public Services Commission so as to re-open franchise......

Former Mayor Joe M. and Brian Rist have been helping the CM & whomever negotiate the LCEC fiasco. So when did we vote for these two clowns. What happened to the people we did waste our vote on?

There should be no incumbent re-elected to council. None, past or present. There is no leadership, competence or professionalism with this group. Expect the franchise fee to be raised from 3 to 6%, these are the same gutless wonders who put the PST and FST in place. Do we need any further evidence of their ineptness. They cannot be gone soon enough.

I've been against the idea of a City of Cape Coral run electrical division for quite a while. I really do want LCEC on board with the Cape. I also think that we have a golden opportunity to put them back on earth. For those of you that complain about City staff etc... I would strongly encourage you to take a good look at the the upper mgmt salaries of LCEC. They are not acceptable and we shouldn't stand for it. It's a Cooperative and they rape it as if it's a large corporation.

Come council! Cut the deal. Just put caps on unethical deposits, and other items that we don't necessarily get the best deal. Be reasonable but firm!

As related to this LCEC opinion post. The two members who are the mediators on behalf of our City are Former Joe M. and Brian Rist- Council for Progress.

QUOTE "Did the City always know about this land contamination?" -- That is the million dollar question! If they did or didn't, we will never be told the truth. Now it's a waiting game based on the extent of contamination. This property may prove to be worthless to DR Horton. This saga is only beginning. More to follow!

Lawmajor, First & foremost DR Horton's contract with the private land owner's is contingent upon the Land Use Change as I am sure you are aware. A few days ago in the news media it was mentioned that DR Horton was going to have the land tested for contamination. I do agree with your post. The question that I would have is: Did the City always know about this land contamination?

Fortherecord - Judging from what has recently been undercovered, the Old Golf Course residents could potentially have a lot more to worry about since the results of the soil that was tested have concerns. Who knows, Hutton might just want to walk away from this property if the soil proves to be badly contaminated. The residents around said property should group together and demand answers from the property owner. The City of Cape Coral should be rightly concerned also. Nothing should be going there until it is determined that this land/property will not be making people ill. Safety first!

As long as the people here are apathetic and don't vote our elected bobble heads don't have to worry. They can stay as long as they want. All they have to do is go along with the administration.

The voters made their own bed and now must live with the consequences.

Former Mayor Joe M. and Brian Rist have been helping the CM & whomever negotiate the LCEC fiasco. Also, Former Mayor Joe M., Coviello, Mayor Marni & Jennifer Nelson are favorites of the Old Golf Course residents regarding their desire "not" to approve the Land Use Change....As I have heard.

Please republish this editorial close to election time so we can send these so called leaders packing. They and their clown of a CM have wasted enough money. What a disgusting state of affairs. But we should be use to it by now.

They simply don't care about the people that they work for. All of this will fall on deaf ears, because they know that what they're doing is shafting the residents, and they're fine with that.

QUOTE "Let us point out that these are costs to be borne by all LCEC ratepayers & Cape Coral taxpayers, who get to pay twice. Add in the unaccounted-for staff time on both sides spent since the effort began more than 500 days ago - Lee County's franchise talks with LCEC took less than 30" -- And our city government wonders why it's constituents are angry and NOT HAPPY with them. Gee, I wonder why????? Just goes to show just how easy it is to spend other people's money! This MUST STOP!
