Dear "Celebrate Marco"
As long as you're running errands for City Hall and "educating" Marcos legal dummies, you might want to share your wisdom with City Council. You see, when they denied POP's petition, they didn't know the following, but YOU obviously did:
"As our Supreme Court recently said in Beckstrom v. Volusia County Canvassing Board, et al., 707 So. 2d 720 (Fla. 1998) quoting Boardman v. Esteva, 323 So. 2d 259 (Fla. 1975): The real parties in interest here, not in the legal sense but in realistic terms, are the voters. They are possessed [sic] to the ultimate interest and it is they whom we must give primary consideration . . Ours is a government of, by and for the people. Our federal and state constitutions guarantee the right of the people to take an active part in the process of that government, which for most of our citizens means participation via the election process. The right to vote is the right to participate; it is also the right to speak, but more importantly it is the right to be heard. We must tread carefully on that right or we risk the unnecessary and unjustified muting of the public voice. By refusing to recognize an otherwise valid exercise of the right of a citizen to vote for the sake of sacred, unyielding adherence to statutory scripture, we would in effect nullify that right."
Thanks for this amazing piece of news! Now run along...share it and celebrate the discovery.
