Long Bar Pointe development plan shows the bad side of politics

June 14, 2013 

Well, it didn't take long for the board of county developers, I mean commissioners, to show us where they stand and who they work for. The Long Bar Pointe project is ridiculous.

Instead of protecting this county's resources, they are all for destroying the little we have left. But hey, those developers paid good money to put these "elected" officials in their back pockets, so it's time for the paybacks.

Those who didn't see this coming need to remove their "I hate Obama" glasses and take a long hard look at our local politics to see where this group is taking us, destroy the fragile ecosystem all for the mighty dollar and to be beholden to the developers which paid for these people's positions.

Yes, you voters who helped get them in office; you are to blame, also. Reap what you sow.

Joe McClash, I miss you.
