A Blow to the Greene-ocracy

Congratulations to my friend Jamie Beckett for his election to the Winter Haven City Commission. Jamie is an intellectually honest libertarian, and I can’t wait to see how his big picture approach to government meshes with the actual business of running a city. In any event, Jamie won’t be another yes-man or woman to the petty imperialism of Winter Haven City Manager David Greene, the most anti-democratic, untransparent local-level public official I’ve ever seen. He’s the Dick Cheney of small cities. Good for Winter Haven citizens for bringing a skeptic in the fold.

  1. Congratulations Mr. Beckett!
    I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you but a recommendation by Mr. Townsend is as good as gold with me.

    While I understand you already have a list of priorities on your plate, could you please add:
    a refresher course for “your” staff at the City of Winter Haven on Florida’s public records law
    and could you please see that any additional “illegal” annexations are ceased.

    Thank you.
