Thanks for the kind words Maz. You are absolutely correct; ole’ Crash has had a few head shots. But we need to get on the same page. Of Course, I am familiar with your silly worthless Home Rule charter. How’s that working out for you? NOT! What I am saying, is that when ole’ Crash worked in Tallahassee and he mentioned Cape Coral, you would think he was talking about a “Leper Colony”. Don’t kid yourself Sparky, the state of Florida has never forgave the Cape for the Real Estate scams and environmental destruction and costing the state $billions. The only way Gov. Claude R Kirk, Jr. would approve the Cape’s incorporation was for the Cape to have an elected council and for them to hire an outside City Manager. Do you think Kirk was interested in your Cape Coral City Charter? The citizens of Cape Coral voted and agreed to the Kirk deal. You did not answer the question: who is the real Cape Coral Leader and shouldn’t we be sending that person to HARDVARD?

CrashDummy you hit your head too hard the last time. Check the charter, it is the governing document, for the people approve the charter, and gov't is for an by the people I believe. Section 4.01 of the city’s charter states, There shall be a City Council of seven (7) members and a Mayor. The Council shall be nominated by the qualified electors as provided hereinafter in this Article IV, and in Article VIII. There shall be one Council member elected from each district by the qualified electors of the City at large.

What a waste! According to the Florida Incorporation records, Cape Coral has a Council-City Manager governance. Coviello is not a real Mayor. He represents no one and he has no authority. He is only a part-time 8th member of Council and gets paid $36,000 and the City Manager gets paid $200,000 as stated by the Breeze. My question is: who is the real Cape Coral Leader and shouldn’t we be sending that person to HARDVARD?

Mr. Karcher, the post is a light rewrite of a press release from the city. You are, however, correct that we could have - and should have - checked the expense information before posting - especially since it was readily available on the seminar Web site. (The city also provided the info when asked.)

Seems like the Breeze could have said that expenses are paid by the conference as a liner in the article?
