The Judge Notes:
1. New Smyrna Beach has shown after
five years it needs neither a Mayor
nor City Council. They left it to Pam.
But, Jim Hathaway would be a decent
mayor and could possibly turn this
around, especially if he got rid of
Pammie. We have had our disagreements
with him from time to time, but he is bright and knows the ropes. We have never thought of him as part of the fried chicken circuit.
2. On the other hand, Jack Grasty has never voted to reduce taxes, only to increase them to benefit his favored employee unions and his MDC friends. Now if you want a judge for the quality of the chicken at the latest chicken dinner he has attended, then he is your man. Beyond that, he can't even answer an email on his City provided laptop. Is this who you want running the NSB government; we think not!
3. How did $1.2 million in trash pick up overcharges get transferred to the NSB general fund? It is in the last audit. Ask Pam! Where did the money go? Fried chicken dinners?
