Dear Sayre: Without going into the meaningless diatribe that you constantly present us with, I will tell you that your number of registered voters that voted is totally inaccurate.In fact, if you research the numbers in detail, you would find that over 500 voters did not even vote for City Council due to the fact that the names were on the back of the Ballot.Yes, I agree, stupid. But you need to go to the Supervisor of Elections to get an accurate number.And when you do, you will also see that there were candidates (1) that lost by 184 votes. And while I have already congratulated the victors, as a citizen, and while I acknowledge that the Democratic process has worked, 184 votes is hardly a mandate on the part of our voters,And it is the same Democratic process that allows our seven member Council to vote on issues to determine their impact to the citizens of Marco Island.We can only hope that all of our City Council votes for the betterment of ALL Islanders, I repeat, ALL Islanders, rather than special interests. We have many more families here than we do retirees. We have condo residents (how many I do not know compared to homeowners). We have younger and we have older voters, each looking for different things from our City Council.Once you get the correct number of voters, why don't you print the retraction and correction yourself.HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!Ed Issler
