Zookeeper: It is no secret to most of the populace that Mr. Arceri runs several of the present, and past, city councilors. Rumor has it that prior to the past elections, meetings were being held at Mr. Arceri's home of the council members at which time he was holding court. Don't the Sunshine Laws apply here too? Or is this a grey area that can be utilized? At any rate, it certainly tells you that he is running the show and his puppets are doing his bidding.
I, too, would like to see those strings cut and elect some independent (of Arceri) councilors. I would like to see people who are able to glean what the citizens of this city want and are concerned about, and who can think and act on their own. People, who in my opinion, are capable of making decisions and doing their due diligence for the taxpayers of this island in a more ethical manner--unencoumbered by "strings".
We have on this current council, members who do not pay taxes to this island,at least one who can be found on many bar stools any evening of the week, one who was elected by the infamous "bullet vote" (again not illegal, but unethical--another grey area), and one, whom I understand no longer lives on this island. All of whom, in my opinion, are beholden to Mr. Arceri.
What I don't understand is how this man can think that he has the "right" to decide who runs and who sits on our council. When was he appointed the ruler of Marco Island? And why does he believe that he knows what is best for all of our citizens?
Fellow taxpayers of Marco, it is time to vote out the current running incumbants and get some new people who not only want the best for EVERYONE, but who are willing to do the thinking and work necessary without bias.
We need to let the Puppet Master and the purported Marco Mafia know that we have had enough of them!!!!!
