City of Coral Springs Bankrupt ? Vote NO on March 13 on $75,000,000 Bond “Credit Card”

Our preparedness however is predictable, and we should learn what we can from the events of this storm. What did I…

Told you so : City Hall now at $38,000,000 and counting! You can’t fix Stupid.

In case you have not been paying attention, the City Hall which I called the Taj Mahal during my campaign for City Commissioner almost 2 years ago, has pegged up in cost to $38,000,000.  Now that you did not pay attention 2 years ago when I was doing my best to get you to vote for me so I could stop this craziness you will be paying for it in your tax bills. I am not going to focus on those people at the city commission that voted for it, but more on  commissioner Larry Vignola who made sure he…
