I cannot believe my eyes
and ears! Delaney has a "Campaign Group" featuring HIM doing expensive spot commercials
on BOTH Television and Radio for the Better Jacksonville Plan!
(WHO is paying for this nonsense? Full disclosure needed here folks! - A committee is paying for them. Fine-- who is funding this
committee? Better Yet; "WHO ARE THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS?")
Of course, anyone living in the Duval County area would know this by the heavy saturation attack this "campaign committee"
is waging. One must listen carefully to detect the neatly packaged collage of Delaney "one-liners" promoting, advocating and pleading the case of the Better Jacksonville Plan.
So the "Hard Sell" has morphed into flat out "Propaganda". Remember folks; "Propaganda and BS are one and the same."
The shame of it all is, they're not the least bit specific; "We'll
pave the streets, We're not Atlanta, We'll fix the sewers, We're
not Atlanta, We'll rebuild the downtown area, We're not
Atlanta", and Johnny Boy raves on and on but says nothing
specific. Friends this boondoggle will come back to haunt
Jacksonville many times over. The corruption it will
breed, the bad government it has already spawned and now the
hypocrisy of this Mayor trying to make the Better Jacksonville
Boondoggle look like a Political Campaign.
IS REALLY PAYING FOR ALL THE TV AND RADIO COMMERCIALS FOR THIS
BOONDOGGLE? HOW ABOUT IT MR. MAYOR? WHO IS FOOTING THE
BILL FOR YOUR PR CAMPAIGN FOR THE BOONDOGGLE KNOWN AS BETTER
I never thought I'd see the day when "responsible, level headed, citizens" would
aggressively campaign for a tax increase!! This entire
Delaney Boondoggle has turned into an exercise in absurdity. Actually, it
is reminiscent of a scene or two out of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's
Nest". This entire matter has taken on a personality of its own and I might add.. its not very pretty.
Knowing the ultimate scheme in the background could easily be "lining our
buddy's pockets..." this entire Better Jacksonville THING needs thorough examination by the courts.
Take a good look at the list of those who are paying for the
Better Jacksonville Ad Campaign... it'll blow your mind as to
what's been done by our wonderful Mayor. Talk about buying
influence and setting one's self up for a payday.... the donors
have all bought a place at the feeding trough. The list of
donors to the Campaign is public information. If the Mayor
was half the righteous Politician he wants you to think he is...
he'd put a complete list of the donors up on the Better
Jacksonville Website for all to see. This whole mess is nothing
more than "kickbacks in
Shame on you Delaney...
you've made a mockery of honest government. Never have I
seen such crude manipulation and schemes. There was a time
when this sort of thing was done with finesse.. I guess some
bimbo downtown feels its smarter to "hide in the
open". Little do they realize just how insulting it
is to watch them pull this garbage in plain view.
A full investigation into who actually owns the properties to be used for the new construction downtown. Next, the companies involved in the actual construction.. from the excavation to the tip of the flagpoles need to offer full disclosure of who owns the companies both up front and their silent investors.
Why you ask? Take a good look... I would not be surprised if some pretty familiar names pop up all over the place. Like the same old names that ALWAYS seem to grab the "cream bux" in this city. Its time these hogs moved over and gave others time at the trough. Better yet, its time the fleecing of the hard working taxpayers to line the fat cat's pockets came to an end.
Of course, the actual job of Bettering Jacksonville should follow a responsible and sensible course with double-decking J.T. Butler Expressway, the civic center out of the downtown area, the Fairgrounds moved out of the Sports Complex and multi-level, exit and entrance parking parks built to handle two or more events occurring at the same time in the sports complex. How about those high-rise apartment-condo dwellings with the lower level parking and commercial arcades? Make the Downtown area livable not unbearable. Whaddaya say John?? Or, is this too much like doing the right thing?
To top off the
insanity.... Delaney's trolls are busy with their Campaign
Committee for the Better Jacksonville Plan .... trouble is
they're LYING to the People. They're saying the Better
Jacksonville Plan is like the US Constitution!! "It's
voted in by the people and can be modified by the people!!
How many changes have been easily made to the US Constitution
folks?? NONE!! Each change took an ACT of CONGRESS!
Why doesn't Delaney insist that all the talk about the US
Constitution and the people being in direct control be placed in
the "Official Ballot Language"? Of course not!!
It would never get off the ground but its ok to BS the voting
public with these rubber band ads. Shame on you Delaney
and shame on your joke of a Campaign Committee. Who are the members
of this committee? I'm willing to be its a
collage of the same old, familiar names that are "behind
the scenes" in just about everything that happens in Duval
it involves big money and juice.
This whole Campaign
Committee scam is nothing more than a hustle to convince Duval
County Voters to approve a sales tax increase! That'll be
on top of the School Tax increase by the most inept School Board
in the State... perhaps the country. Then there's the alleged
home owner's tax decrease... really? WHERE?? The
PROPERTY tax office has no knowledge of such at this time. Delaney is one
smooth talker... Come September 5th he'll be yapping out of the
other side of his mouth. This nonsense must be defeated.
Else the city is going to be sucked in again! Who will
suffer the most? Those on fixed incomes, the elderly and
the retired! WHY?
By the way.... John
Delaney.... What are you and your Republican buddies doing about
the EXCESSIVE number of
Waste Sites in Jacksonville, Duval County FL.?
Going to wait until babies begin being born that GLOW
in the DARK? Take a look at this Superfund
List folks... Is your happy homestead in one of them? Or,
maybe the school or day care center you use is... then again...
you could be working in the middle of one and never know
it! And these guys want to build monuments??
is high time..... Our politicians, Republican, Democrat or
whatever decided to make the Greater Metropolitan
Jacksonville Area SAFE to live in and raise children in!
No wonder Jacksonville has one of the highest rates of CANCER
in the Nation.
To all: You can send
this editorial to Johnny Boy Delaney... I'd like some rock
solid answers, for all to see, about the above questions and an answer as to why
the Official Ballot Language does not spell out what the money
(Over a BILLION Dollars) is to be used for? Read it Below....
