4marcoisland, who have confirmed that you are indeed a "Darma" and wish the "Darma" lifestyle.
Your examples of supporters include retired educators, principals, superintendents, college professors and business people who support education.
Friends of mine who were employed in those jobs actually enjoy the same or more income retired than when they were working, so yes I would call them "well off". People like you describe surround themselves with the "elite" and "fundraise" and socialize for the "good of education". I have seen it I know.
Next, yes I have volunteered at local "public" NON CHARTER school. I help regular "working Joe" kids so they are not left back by your elite kid with your money. What "public non charter" school do you volunteer at?
The problem with public schools are most teachers are stupid and lazy. Yes, you heard me right. I have many friends that are and were teachers that are retired. Many cannot figure out how to turn on a computer, prepare a lesson plan other than by an outline. Some have had their child become teachers and then the cycle continues. They see the lifestyle that mom or dad have, work 9 months of the year excluding days of holidays, winter break ect. Show up for 30 years get a retirement plan that is huge along with LIFETIME medical.
Your hardworking families on Marco Island I do not agree with. Does the person mowing your lawn or cleaning your pool live next door to you? I doubt it.Would you want that person living next door to you? I doubt it. People like you "Darmas" want to say that the island is so "diverse" in "economic" backgrounds but I do not see my landscaper at the country club.
Your other statement "if you don't have a child why do you care? That is an elitist statement if I ever heard one. Truth is I am part of Marco Island as a resident and I care about the impact on my FELLOW CITIZENS which you do not care about as long as your school can proceed forward.
The "Darmas" see this as a huge chance to get what they want one stop island. Paradise confined. I to like the privacy of the island why would I have paid so much money for anything else? You people are just trying to take it to the next level then what? Marco University? A school for only the very elite.
Want that lifestyle? I don't I want to live in a friendly place with peace and quiet. You people "Darmas" want that and more.
You should move to Ava Maria. That was done right. It was developed in OPEN AREAS from scratch, and then the town will evolve around the school. Brillant planning. Tom Monanhan is a very smart man. He constructed his vision and did not bother or displace one person. I admire his thought and compassion and he used his own funds that HE earned. He did not just by off the YMCA like you are trying to do.
The problem you "Darmas" want it all. I do not believe the majority of the island want your school on the YMCA properity.
