Part 2 (sorry for the length)
What kind of a person would I be, actually having read "the bill" and knowing what I personally know, if I just sat down and "colored" or worse yet, voted contrary to what I knew to be true or in a manner that would be harmful to constituents.
What I have said before, and I'll say it again, "there will be plenty of opportunity when I misstep to throw stones" ... and I'll expect it and probably deserve it.
But, I don't take lightly or kindly being misquoted, having someone assert that something clearly meant one way being twisted, or being bullied.
Marco Island, Tallahassee, and Washington are filled with folks who are "acting the part" ... who literally don't have a clue about not just how things work (you can get some of that just by watching and hanging around) ... our problem is that too many elected officials don't know how things are SUPPOSED to work.
I have for 35+ years, focused on how things are supposed to work ... which sometimes is a long lonely road. If I had a dollar for everytime I have heard "but we've always done it that way" ... I could probably rake them up.
So, I'll make a shameless pitch, which someone also previously asserted: if you're happy with the way things are, then just keep doing what you've been doing. But, if you're unhappy, if you think that things are kind of broken and would like to see some fixes made -- or even suggested -- that's what I do ... that's what I stand for. And, finally, there are no "lowly" Mercedes and there are no "lowly" citizens, in any context or on any day. Cheers!
