Perhaps the most important point is that those residents who attended the Council meeting actually believe they represent the majority of residents on the Island. This is not an appropriate assumption. One needs only listen to the same people over and over and over again, who have been complaining about the City since it became a City & who have been complaining about the City since the septic tank replacement program....
These are mostly the same people-especially Fay Biles and her trusty followers from her MITA board-and a few more who complain about everything the City does and are still trying to destroy the City Charter...most recently through Sanchez who has been convinced to sue the EPA regarding the long dead alleged asbestos issue; So now the EPA in turn is threatening fines of millions of dollars (which will have to be paid by the tax payers of Marco Island if he is successful, which would threaten to bankrupt the City)...
These people do NOT represent the majority, no matter how belligerent they become, no matter how verbally abusive they become of the City Staff at Council meetings, no matter how much they try to bully the City Council, no matter how unruly and disrespectful they act at Council meetings...no wonder they have no idea what the majority thinks, the majority cannot bear to attend Council meetings anymore. The CRA is not a Community Divider...the anti-City crowd is. It is against any success the City Staff may have, because City success undermines the basis for the MITA group's constant assault on Cityhood. The anti-City group is destroying Marco Island.
If the Anti City group represented the majority, they would have viable candidates. But election after election, they fail. Since they can’t rule, they undermine. Pathetic.
