Unfortunately, A vote for Wyllie is a vote for Scott. A vote for Crist is a vote against Scott - that must be the choice for me - vote for Crist.

Article Headline: Former Commissioner Donna Hayes: “Lying is Second Nature to Carol Whitmore”


Comment:
Carol Whitmore is not an truthful & decent person. She also is not honest & reliable. She brushes most citizens off as if we are nothing & of no use to her. Donna Hayes has always been a caring honest individual. Thank you for stating the obvious.

Comment:
If it were not for financial need, I doubt that we would be able to recruit an adequate volunteer military, due to the repeated mistreatment of its members. This information connotes another dismal failure of our political system and the self-serving attitude of elected officials.

Comment:
Thank you Dennis for the info. Sadly I am not surprised by this , during the Vietnam war the U.S. government exposed the troops to agent orange and then denied it for quite some time, claiming Monsanto didn't tell them of the risks. Shame on our government and most of all shame on Monsanto!
FYI the EPA just approved use of enlist duo , a pesticide for our crops that has the same chemicals as Agent Orange and them some...nothing much has changed.

Comment:
RED, WHITE, AND BLUE DOES NOT MEAN THEY WORK FOR YOU.
All Candidates pull out the Oldest ploy in the book to get your votes, RED, WHITE, and BLUE. Playing the old ace of cards trick, Bunting and Sign arrayed in the Colors of the Nation, they are suppose to appeal to our sense of patriotism, but they are JUST COLORS and meaningless without the soul of ethics and honor and truth to follow through on the pledge to office and representation. They are just COLORS to HIDE THE DARK SIDE that lurks off stage and behind the doors.
When they take that pledge to hold office do they honor that pledge or is it merely put forth as lip service.
Nothing Grows in the Garden of Government. The Plants are Sterile and fruitless and the garden is choked and overgrown by weeds and it strangles the fruit of the garden. The Weeds of Government have been there longer than most of the Plants. It is past time to remove the blight, cut down the weeds, pull the weeds out by the roots, Weed the garden, and pull those nasty weeds out by the roots. It is ?Time? plow the garden under and to put in some new healthy plant stock in the Garden of Government that can bear fruit and produce abundance. Surely we have some healthy Plant Stock Somewhere.

Article Headline: Former Commissioner Donna Hayes: “Lying is Second Nature to Carol Whitmore”


Comment:
I applaud Donna for standing up and saying what most people in this county are scared of saying. Donna has never been a liar,a citizen oriented fact finder; yes... Liar, NO. If nonbelievers want facts then please contact Terri Wonders' campaign office. We have Documents galore showing CW lying, backpedaling, and playing the unaware game. You can not dispute facts, you may try & distort them, but the truth will & has surfaced. Unfortunately, some Manatee county residents... "Can't handle the truth" !!

Article Headline: Former Commissioner Donna Hayes: “Lying is Second Nature to Carol Whitmore”


Comment:
I have no respect for Donna Hayes. She, of all people has a corner on lying. I knew you Donna when you first started in Manatee Co. politics and Donna is the most self-serving person I know. She will do anything to get her name in print or her picture before the public. Shame on you Donna: you are no pillar of virtue. Shame on you for writing such pucky and shame on the Bradenton Times for printing such garbage. Sounds to me like there is a select group out there who want to ruin CW and are putting forth a group effort. Well there are a lot of us who have faith in Carol and know that she does the best possible for this county as it is her home too. Why don't you all meet and hug sp,e mangroves over at the beach? Let he without sin cast the first stone--This seems like a nasty conspiracy.

Comment:
You don't need to have a philosophical dissertation on "What is truth'. You know it when you hear it. The mask comes off the liar. Carol told me more than once, "I don't know where my contributions come from." After a moment to chuckle, I asked her, "Does that mean you as an elected official signed quarterly reports, without reviewing your report?" Silence. Want to hear another one? Carol defended her mix-use vote towards Long Bar Pointe: "Cortezans love me, really Joe." Really Carol, it's so sad you don't know truth from fiction. For me the truth is that we have to vote for Terri Wonder for commissioner. Dennis your reporting is excellent. Truthful and balanced. A public service to Manatee County.

Article Headline: Community Spotlight: Meals on Wheels PLUS Secures New Facility in Manatee County


Comment:
Thank God for this expansion. If you cannot take care of yourself you do not have the right or responsibility to care for someone else. I know personally how taxing caregiving can be. Just an afternoon alone, or to have a few precious hours to do something for oneself can provide that much needed recharge of energy to carry on. Caring for a geriatric person is much more difficult than an infant and in many ways much more demanding. It puts the caregiver in a very stressful situation and a very stressful environment with no means of coping except to allow their own health to decline. Providing a service that allows some respite from being there 24/7 is a God Send. Thank you for your efforts and I wish you lots of support in your efforts to provide this much needed Service.

Comment:
There is an old proverb ?better to keep mouth shut than to insert both feet, proving who and what you really are?. Sooner or later not telling the truth catches up with you. Juggling all those balls in the air is not an easy task and for that Whitmore gets an ?A Plus? for effort, but an ?F? for Ethics and Morals. It is a lack of ethics and morals that has lead to mistakes, everyone turning on her, and her fall from Grace. Those mistakes bring the whole ?Act? into question and the real persona to the surface and into the light of day. This Circus Act is a carny sideshow. The damage she has done has yet to be revealed. She had a Great Fall and Just like Humpty Dumpty the whole ?Act? tumbles to the ground. 22 years and it is time for the Carny Side Show to close, move on, for the shell game to end, time to fold the table, fold the tent and to find another Con and quit juggling and muggling Manatee Counties Future. Please don?t move on, just Close. Manatee?s future cannot afford you.

Comment:
We need to return Manatee County to its citizens not developers.
This is a start to rid the Commission of all of those who do not listen and respect the voters. Let's take the first step in November and remove Whitmore --- elect Terri Wonder.

There would be no Issue without the "DARK SIDE". The "DARK SIDE" steers the Agenda. The DARK SIDE is WINNING. Put Light on the DARK SIDE, REMOVE the "DARK FORCE" Be Sure and VOTE. Bring Openness and Clarity to Government. Shine the Light On the "DARK FORCE", VOTE.

Comment:
One of the "MEAN GIRLS" or as I like to refer to them as "THE AXIS OF EVIL", and that whole rats nest needs cleaning. Tenting is quite common here in Florida and it is way past time to Exterminate and Fumigate the Commission and drive out the termites,cockroaches,vermin, and sewer rats that pervade and permeate government especially after 22years at it. The longer the exposure the darker you get. Use your "FORCE" and expel the "DARK SIDE".

Based upon your comments you really do not have a clue and yet you are willing to support, I say go for it. It is your right. It is your right to compromise Ethics, Morals, Promises, Honesty, and Sacrifice your Community in the process.

Article Headline: SBEP Announces Speakers for 3rd Annual Water Festival on November 1


Comment:
Sarasota Bay Estuary Program (SBEP) cannot effectively protect the bay for which hundreds of thousands of tax dollars have been spent, when SBEP "hides" the data needed by citizens to demonstrate the certain harm of unrestrained development in coastal high hazard areas. In addition to hiding data, refusing to provide scientific testimony when the bay is threatened by development proposals, makes SBEP a contributor do bay destruction rather than preservation. Without courage, complete independence from local government must be the answer.

Article Headline: Letter to the Editor: Whitmore Needed on County Commission


Comment:
As commissioner at large, Whitmore should have represented all not just AMI citizens of Manatee County. Her environmental record in other parts of the county is far from acceptable.

Article Headline: Whitmore Wants to Focus on Job Growth, Port Manatee


Comment:
Especially today, when one candidate raises a lot of money from relatively few donors, his or her independence is compromised. Although there are many reasons to vote for Wonder rather than Whitmore, following the money trail is reason enough to discard Whitmore and bring in Wonder.
