This is my first ever try at this. My husband tells me that the people who write in this blog are mostly frustrated wannabes that haven't got the guts to run for Council and just want to make noise.
He may be right, I keep seeing the same people harp on about the same stupid thing. The person who claims that someone isn't a voter, and keeps going on about it should check the voter list in Naples. It's easy to do, just walk in and there's a terminal right there and they'll show you how to do it. I've done it.
My husband and I, and many of our friends and neighbors voted for Rob Popoff. We thought he was a breath of fresh air, a good looking young man with a lot of energy. My husband knows Tom Owens, who is now married to Rob's mother, a very nice lady, with a wonderful family.
I don't care what the writers in here say about Rob and what he did, and what he implied. I know what I and everyone else heard and read, which is why we voted for him in the first place. Words cannot describe the shock, disbelief, disgust, and feeling of betrayal, we have all experienced since that first Council meeting when we all saw for the first time the real Rob Popoff and his real agenda. Whoever helped him with a "switch and bait" plan is a devious, cunning person with no morals. I don't think any Popoff would have behaved like this, somebody put him up to it, and he went with it.
He made a mistake that he has to live with, because no one I know would ever trust him again with anything.
My husband is friendly with Ray Beaufort, who is a nice man that follows all the goings on with the Council. Somebody has to keep an eye on them and Ray is the man for the job. My husband just showed me a letter that Ray sent to somebody talking about Rob Popoff and this one paragraph tells me all I need to know about what happened at the last election.
You are truly an intellectually challanged preson. Did you actually think that we would let you join with us to take back our island. HELLO!! I was being facetious when I invited you to join us. Your vision for the future of Marco Island is far from our vision. This group of so called "malcontents" as your minority calls us wears that badge proudly.LAST ELECTION WE DEFEATED EVERY CANDIDATE YOUR MINORITY GROUP HAD THROWN AT US EXCEPT ROB POPOFF AND HE HAD TO LIE TO THE PUBLIC TO GAIN THE MARGIN NEEDED TO WIN AND I ASSURE YOU THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN. Ray Beaufort.
I'm looking forward to this next election, looks like the campaign has started. I'm voting for Hall and Batte. I voted for Batte last time and I like what he has to say. Roger Hall tried to make a difference to Marco with the recall, I think that went away, but Roger Hall didn't and he isn't giving up on Marco. All my friends and neighbors and even my husband is sick of what is going on, we need to change that!! Thank you for reading my first blog, my husband will be mad at me, but he'll get over it.
