Let us not forget what Mr. Magel said just 7 months ago in his own words as a guest commentator. Note his disdain for a specific civic group.
"A reporter asked me why I wanted to be Chairman of the Marco Island City Council and I replied, “I want to communicate with our citizens.” You deserve to know the real facts on the issues that come before the City Council, not what some group wants you to hear."
So folks, Mr. Magel wants to speak candidly to condo owners only, as a citizen, of course! I believe this is also the same man, sitting as Chairman of Council.
Thanks, Mr. Magel you are making the case for the Marco Island Property Owners, as to who is better representing whom.
To the folks, we can discuss facts and figures, but one thing does NOT go away unless we vote for fiscal conservatives: the excessive level of debt service relative to other communities as confirmed from city hired consultants in the review of debt service.
I for one will NOT endorse candidates that wish to run on a platform of positiveness while this city is under a barrage of spending proposals that will bring us down a path of more spending that will require higher revenue relative to previous years, in fact rising faster than the county on a relative basis.
In 2000, Marco Island taxpayers paid 10% of total real estate taxes for city services and the balance to Collier County, today that portion is now 15-16%. That is NOT a positive development unless there was a commensurate decrease in Marco Island revenue to reflect the excesses of government spending!!!!!!!
To Mr. Magel, you simply wish to not include some facts or figures while lamenting some civic organizations are misinforming the public. And this continues with your assessment that Marco Island is a donor city.
Well your public demonstration on Monday was real, and your character was open to the public. I recommend everyone see the show it starts at 27:25
Perhaps the Marco Island Property Owners are misinformed because you chose to only communicate to condo owners. MIPO's clearly states its mission statement, which is not the mission statement you chose to read into the public record. Did you, again, mislead the public?
Shame on you, Mr. Magel.
