Marcofriend: It is great to know what 2,000 people are thinking, I agree. But the Council is elected by a majority of the registered voters on Marco Island. 2,000 represents only about 15% of these voters and of the 2,000, a percentage disagrees with much of what you want the Council to do.
The Planning Board members are appointed by members of City Council and are supposed to reflect the visions of the Council person that appointed them, in theory.
I cannot help but think back to the 2,000 people that signed the Recall Petition and cannot help but associate that 2,000 number with the 2,000 MICA number. As it turned out, the 2,000+ number was also the number of people that voted for the Non-STRP Slate as opposed to the 6,000 that voted for Council candidates that voiced a favorable vote for the STRP, in the last election.
That 2,000 number just keeps going and going. The problem is that it does not comprise anywhere close to a majority of our Electorate.
