Fay- You, Roger Hall, Ed Foster and others fought the City about the septic tank replacement program (STRP) with reasoned arguments (cost to homeowners was high). That was the strongest point made against the otherwise environmentally sound decision to try to clean up our waterways suffering from measurable ooze from the septic tanks that line Marco's canals.
You became bitterly opposed to the STRP (you do not lose gracefully) and when real estate investors (eg Davies) with multiple properties realized they were going to have face multiple STRP fees, the discussion waters were muddied and digressed.
You orchestrated and fueled the flames of intense antagonism aimed squarely at the City Manager who was doing his professional best for the future of Marco Island.
When your reasoned argument failed to persuade, however, you chose a particularly vindictive strategy of personal annihilation against those that did not agree with you and you chose the blunt force slash and burn, take no prisoners strategy to prove them wrong and therefore you right. But you did lose. Even though you nearly killed the formerly friendly and relaxed character of Marco Island you refuse to accept that you lost and to this day are continuing to battle lost wars.
There is something truly tragic in all this....the ruined careers of honorable people; your still growling supporters heckling the City Staff and City Council and some new supporters you have been grooming like the gullible Mario Sanchez, your newest henchman.
You did not and still do not care what lies destroyed in your wake. Your personal vendettas against Bill Moss and the City Councilors was merciless, cruel and extraordinarily destructive for the Island. And now you have manipulated the Council into using shady tactics to unceremoniously dump Thompson because he was in your way.
During the STRP war, you threw gas on the fire to try to stop the STRP by whipping up those who trusted you into fearing for their safety by claiming the normal gases released from the dewatering procedure were life threateningly dangerous.
And then there was the asbestos in the crumbling pipe discovered during the Collier Blvd. beautification project. You have had a field day with that one ever since. You and Foster and Hall et al really tried to cause panic and to scare more innocent residents with trumped up exaggerated and intentionally misleading rants and raves in the local media.
This alleged asbestos issue was your weapon of mass destruction to try to prove once and for all that you were right, if only you could make this WMD the sign of City malfeasance you needed to discredit and wipe out everyone who disagreed with you. But the DEP came in and looked around and gave direction and installed monitoring devices that showed ABSOLUTELY NO danger or harm was evident.(cont. below)
