You may recall the recent anti-Christmas display lawsuit that was an embarrassment to the City of Plantation. If not, allow me to tell you the real story.
The city filed a lawsuit to stop a resident’s popular Christmas display in Plantation.
The city council lost the lawsuit, and paid $475,000 of taxpayers’ money to its attorneys.
This is an outrage, particularly when you consider that the attorney’s bill is
greater than the average value of a single-family home in Plantation.
Now, council members Lynn Stoner and Pete Tingom, who made absolutely no attempt to stop this needless lawsuit are asking you to reward their past public service by electing one of them to be mayor.
Ironically, the mayor’s position pays $475,000 over a four-year term.
Seriously, that’s a lot of nerve.
I guess this is what Mark Twain meant when he said, “Politicians and baby’s diapers should be changed often, and for the same reason.”
