jp-Fay Biles was present at the Council meetings voting for the purchase of the City Water System and expressed no reservations. In fact she was a proponent of purchasing it. Is she to be painted as an egotistical incompetent too?
CM never sent a letter to Condo owners threatening anything...
Real Estate investors opposed the STRP because of the costs (ask Davies). Most of the Island was already on sewer, including about 80% of private homes and had already paid sewer fees when they purchased their homes and continued to pay sewer fees on their monthly bills (not just condo owners).
What do you think happens to the contents of septic tanks along the canals when there is a high tide? There were prescription meds detected in the canals along with the other disturbing results. But this battle as you noted is over EXCEPT that Fay and others are continuing to try to undermine the City government as I noted above.
THAT is the problem. The blatant continuing antagonism has distorted our political culture. Fay is still, years later, attempting to dredge up evidence to undermine the City Government purely for her own ends. If she can make them look bad, then she believes she will still be relevant.
The sad part is, she is an intelligent woman. She could be a positive force moving forward with the current administration, but instead she is using Sanchez to find something, anything to prove the Moss administration was lying about the asbestos.
The asbestos issue was keenly tied to the STRP back in the day, if you recall, as the club to discredit the City and therefore defeat the STRP.
She is so intently focused on this that she has worked to force the firing of Thompson over....wait for it...suppression of asbestos issue related letters. But, as Council pointed out, the 2 letters last year from the EPA asking for more information were at the behest of Sanchez. And were not of significance. Until the EPA letter a few weeks ago which resulted from Sanchez filing a lawsuit against them. That letter was promptly shared with Council.
Fay is making this a big deal. She got Thompson fired over it. She created a hostile environment for years now and that is not conducive to good government. We have a responsibility as good citizens to work with our local government in order to get the best results.
What we have now is completely dysfunctional. And our activist citizens who thrive on anger are fueling it.
Still not Ray.
