Mr. Recker, welcome to the race. The single biggest issue facing Marco Island is honesty and accuracy in government. Many people on this island have been deceived by the City Manager and the disingenuous city council. Your statement that sewers will be mandated by the state is simply false. Have you asked many people on this island if they prefer septic to sewer? It is clear you have not.
I recommend that you support some of your rhetoric with fact. Have you been following the news with what has been happening on Sanibel and sewers? The mayor states that the pollution in the water is from failing sewer treatment facilities not septic tanks. I have written to the city council many times about septic tank monitoring. I have never had one reply form them. You are traveling down the same path as the current council. "I think I am right, therefore I am right". I don't know if you are as arrogant as Minozzi, Trotta, DiSculio Tucker and Popoff, but you sound like you are pontificating from the same throne.
You talk of bringing consensus building to the decision making process on Marco, except on this one issue you are going to impose on the people. I don't know what letters to the editor you are reading, but the majority of the ones I have read are not in support of sewers.
