I have not heard public comments from Mr. Gibson, Mr. Recker, Mr. Honig and Mr. Meyer, denouncing Mr. Magel's negative attack given the "positive" platform that three of the four aforementioned candidates claim as a basis for their slate. Silence is a position, especially from candidates running for a seat on council.
Is it a too much of leap to assume Mr. Magel is doing the heavy lifting for the candidates he recommends by misleading the folks and smearing the other slate consisting of Mr. Honnecker, Mr. Petricca and Mr. Sacher, all running on a common platform of transparency and fiscal responsibility. Mr. Magel is sending memos to targeted groups, ie. condos and country club members creating a scenario that rivals some classic childhood fearful fairy tales.
Pay attention folks! This is the same stuff that has been plaguing this island for years. The majority of existing council continues to spend monies on wants instead of needs and Mr. Magel wants to maintain this dynamic.
We are now seeing what happens when a slate of candidates will not paint inside the lines of a picture drawn by Mr. Magel. The slate of Mr. Petricca, Mr. Sacher, and Mr. Honnecker actually offer an alternate view of what is important to preserving the atmosphere of a small tropical town.
But for now we must confront the vision and future scenarios embedded with fear as presented by Mr. Magel. Again, if you are not with Mr. Magel, they will attack, and today it is to attack MIPO, and a slate of candidates that are members of several civic organizations including MIPO, a citizen's group representing all property owners.
If you really want a change, you cannot reelect incumbents and now through Mr. Magel's endorsement, Mr. Honig or Mr. Meyer simply based on being anointed by the sorcerer. I was considering several candidates, but I now will not consider Mr. Honig as the fourth seat. Mr Honig sealed his fate by claiming to run on a platform of offering a "positive" approach to representation. It really sounds hollow given his silence as to the methods Mr. Magel chose to secure votes for Mr. Honig.
Vote 2012! And see if Mr. Magel is the kiss of death for candidates he endorses.
