Mr. Thompson seems to be one of Obama's understudies. It ain't my fault; I inherited it. But who did he inherit the asbestos mess from? His buddy Bill Moss who recommended him for the job and then scurried over the bridge. Ever since, Stevie has been covering for Willy and handling EPA inquiries as if they were of no importance ... until the EPA mentioned $37,500 a day in potential fines. Then, his back to the wall, he brings the problem to the council while saying that there is no asbestos on the island and everything is just ducky. Steve, asbestos has no half-life. It's on the island forever and it is insidious. It can take decades for the health problems to show and the class-action suits to begin. Furthermore, QE essentially pleaded guilty to Clean Air Act violations when they testified under oath at the CARES-suit deposition that they had no one on site who knew how to handle asbestos. That, in itself, is a violation of the Clean Air Act. Read the law! City employee Mike Daniels also knew there was asbestos under Collier Boulevard and declared himself "unconcerned." That brings the City into the picture. If I were you, Steve, I'd get my butt across the bridge before you take the fall for Moss and crew.
