My bet is McClain will run for mayor but he won't win. McClain get a life instead of regulating news racks

This is not about the newspaper racks but I can't wait for the new real estate pitch on why a person should buy a home here.

Customer inquires, I have to pay a toll to go to a place to work? I have to pay how much more for water and sewer service, I have to pay for limited lawn irrigation, I have to pay on top of my high real estate tax a fee for the fire dept. I have to pay a %tax on top of my electric bill, etc., etc. I am pretty sure I am going to build or buy a home across the river because there is nothing I need to cross to Cape Coral for and I can receive the same services for so much less. (Realtor's rebuttal) "But it is just paradise!" This is cracking me up. How much will it cost those trapped here to subsidize those empty real estate offices?

Hey Marty maybe if the business owners who have these boxes in front of their broken down building, or the owner of the strip malls who are subsidized by the residential tax payers for trash removal will volunteer to make them look presentable? When are you going to pay back the home owners the $850,000 you and your buddies stole from us in recycling revenues we helped bring into the city. The reduction should have been more than $7 a month. But the excuse was good. "What if the revenue rates for reselling the recycled waste go down. We'll have to raise the rates". You are definitely a piece of work on that council. Have we recouped anything of the aborted $25 million equipment the city bought? Spell that out in Capitals and the city's need for capital!

I do not think this wrong but in the midst of priorities I give a*****about fee boxes for newspapers. Hey Marty shall we put code enforcement on this for some ride around overtime? Save it for better times if they ever get to this city.

McClain is concerned with aesthetics on the boxes. What's next a the creation of a city "view shed committee" or a "sign committee"? These silly ideas have no end. Let's keep with immediate safety concerns on this. Thank you.

Maybe Nanny McClain who seems to know what all citizens need can use his formiable expertise and stop all of the adverisement in our driveways. Of course he would not have any stomach for that, or to instruct his CM to live within the revenue he has already. Anyone can manage with excessive revenue, which we all know will wind up in city workers pockets. So thanks but no thanks McClain, I await the lawsuit you will cause by your bone headed ideas.
