Candidate for City Commission James Goetz contacted Lakeland Local through a comment left on this site. It appeared on an article about the appearance of a home for sale listing for his residence.
Goetz comment: “Chuck…I thought much better of you previous to this. You have never contacted me in regards to this and the home is in no way for sale. You are a much better reporter than this and this story appears totally fabricated for attention. What are the issues currently facing the city?”
Though the detailed listing does exist at time of this publication, and though we did contact the number listed, we will take Goetz at his word that he is not selling his home.
Though we stand by the article as written, we will remove it while we investigate his claim the listing was “fabricated for attention.”
