CCC, I like your style. I discovered a couple years ago that Leetz was never a firefighter in Illinois either (EMS or some such; didn't last long) and I couldn't confirm that he had even graduated from the high school stated on his "resume".

Same for Mumbles. He's cringe-worthy clueless and bordering on delusional. His "resume," too, is rife with questionable entries; he has a "certificate" from DePaul (not a degree) and he was a floor runner (read: "message boy"), sometimes "IT guy" at the Board of Trade, not a trader. I've heard he gives "vindictive" new meaning, never forgets a slight, insult or injury and will wait years to get his revenge.

Glad we've cleared up Williams' status as a Sullivan plant; don't know much about Headd. For the first time in my life, I'm considering not voting because the choices are so bad. Help me out! I just hope we don't end up with a 4-4 vote on the council; I can't imagine getting less

Chris Leetz was fired from several jobs and censured by the entire Florida Firefighters Association. His habit of leaving meetings and chambers and his many absences, missing important votes, can no longer be tolerated nor can his vicious insults to citizens. Rick Williams has had no ideas of how he could improve on what McGrail has done for the north Cape—Williams is merely a RAG plant. David Headd says: "Living in District #1 during all of my time in Cape Coral has created a special affection for this area and since it is the oldest part of the city, it is going to need special attention." He’s complaining about spending money on infrastructure while advocating that more money be spent in downtown Cape, a hypocrite and a RAG.

Hello? Have you started Oktoberfesting early?Sullivan recently deliberately avoided TWO huge meetings regarding the Lake O water releases, one of the biggest threats to our environment and economy. Sullivan has spent 4 years making a fool out of himself and the Cape. Failing to appear for events, sleeping through meetings, threatening County Commissioners and stomping out of meetings! He and his buddies have made this city a laughing stock from the Keys to Ocala! He has many times publicly accused employees of wrong-doing, proved incorrect and not once apologized for his comments. “I don’t get mad I get even.” Seems to be Mayor’s Motto!

Good to know someone finally identified Williams as a Mumbles Plant. I was really getting tired of all the attempts to get people to vote against McGrail without admitting that Williams is a Mumbles Man. Imagine how much fun if the council votes were 4-4. I can't wait!

How you come up with "tax and spend" to describe the Council that has been stuck with the grave error of the PAST RAGheads is beyond me! You cannot leave ALL infrastructure and maintenance without funding forever! It's now time to pay for their (and YOUR) grievous mishandling of the NEEDS of the city! Vote Sawicki, McGrail, Leon and Burch for real leadership.

Let's see: Sullivan doesn't know how to run a meeting and gets confused and votes for something he preached against; Leetz is disrespectful to EVERYONE, including the public; Headd said something like if the fire department gets new equipment they'll be running over old people; and Williams suggested that the City implement new programs that were already in force. Yeah. a great crew if you don't want intelligence on the Dais.
