Here’s The Scoop … The Sizzle Or The Steak?…

SIZZZZZLE…. OR  JUST COOKED?….

Dear Readers …..  Commissioner “CLUELESS” Clottey  took to task a certain commissioner (Dodd) for what she said was politicking at a prior meeting when he spoke of getting the right people up on the dais after March 9th to help him  get the Town’s business done……Then true to her “CLUELESS” Clottey lack of character she proceeded to do just that!.. Once again she made all of us who voted for her sorry that we did…(2 more years)…as she told voters not to try the “sizzle” over the “steak”…

Judging from her choice of candidate…District 1 Candidate Marjorie Evans…definitely “no “sizzle” …… as she sat in Jarvis Hall and again either had her head in her hands or was leaning forward with her head in her lap, appearing to be asleep as the first presentations were being addressed…and if her “galpal” “CLUELESS” Clottey was insinuating Evans was the “Steak”…she was definitely “Cooked”!…

Voters should also be aware Candidate Evans again left the meeting early before public comments were done!…(approx. 8:45 pm)  Buyer Beware!…

………………………….

PRIME CHOICE…..

District 1 Candidate Scot Sasser  ( in the suit) who sat upright at all times at the meeting…came prepared with public comments to address the Commission on the A1A project and informed the Town Manager of problems with her choice to give the contract to ….as well as the problem of not presenting the Commission with all the information to make their decision…Candidate Sasser stayed until the end of meeting…Fully engaged and in his upright position! …

Candidate Scot Sasser Public Comments….
“I would like to address the Consent Agenda Item for approval of contract agreement with PBS&J in the amount of $58,300.00 for the design of the FDOT Local Agency Program SR-A1A Enhancement Project. According to the minutes from January 26, 2010 3 companies were selected by a 4-1 vote. This begs the question; where are the other 2 design proposals? Shouldn’t the Commission at least be provided all 3 bids before making a decision? There is no back-up relating to the other bids, only the bid for PBS&J. While the header for the item listed in the minutes states to give authorization for the Town Manager to negotiate the contract it also states to set a date for presentation of short listed forms. This would indicate that there would be a presentation of ALL short listed responses.

Also, a quick Google of PBS&J provided information that they are being investigated for a “Corporate pay to play scandal” and two of their former chairmen have submitted guilty pleas. This was posted in two separate articles by the Miami Herald dated January 9, 2010 and February 2, 2010. I can only assume this was not known before short-listing the firms since it never came up in the discussion on January 26.

I would suggest that the Commission hold off on approval of this until all short-listed firms are presented (as was specified) and some consideration is given to the current state of affairs of this company in particular.”

He also addressed the $700,000 …that Comm. Silverstone,the Town and the Town’s auditor were trying to say “we saved” in the CAFR Presentation by stating he could do the math… “we should have saved a million.”…or in “steak” speak…Time to put a fork in it!…
