Rant & Rave - Sept. 27, 2013

September 27, 2013 Suwannee Democrat

Live Oak — Chairman Wainwright said at the Commission meeting when public comment was supposed to be allowed, they would not be allowed to speak about the waste incinerator, now our Republican Commission is taking our right to speak away. Isn't this the way it's done in China? Chairman Wainwright has mad at least one trip to China, who paid that bill?

****

Many thanks to Commissioner Rickey Gamble for staying long after the Board of County Commissioners'Meeting adjourned, to hear the comments of Suwannee citizens that had been denied any public comment at Tuesday's meeting, by Chairman Wainwright. When can a new Chairperson be elected who is open to the input from the residents of our county? Your autocratic decision making is unacceptable and insulting, Chairman Wainright!

****

With the obvious firestorm from the citizens of Suwannee County following the Board of County Commissioners' decision to allow "by right" any/every type facility here without public hearing or permitting,I would hope they are wise enough to resend this decision. It takes a big person to admit you made a mistake. How many of the five can step up to the plate and do just that?

****

Praise be to Tim Williams for his leadership and vision. Thank you for your service to our community.

****

What is happening with the chamber these days? No word on the street about changes, has the economic development effort met a brick wall?

****

Has anyone wondered what the cumulative air impacts will be on the Catalyst site now that two businesses will be producing toxic fumes? Who is looking out for us? Not Governor Scott he is looking to get re-elected and he needs to fill his campaign coffers with donations. Our county officials seem to be falling all over themselves to help dirty industry locate here. Something has got to give!
