Wishing upon 2013

Published: Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 10:43 AM.

Here is hoping that the Board of County Commissioners, city of Port St. Joe, city of Wewahitchka, the Board of the Chamber of Commerce, somebody has the sense to give this guy a break.

The BOCC has performed the political back-flip enough and this latest excursion into capricious decision-making – blowing up a consolidated economic development agency less than two years after creating it and hiring Sellers from Arkansas – takes the cake of flat out disregard for another human being.

In this day and age, in this holiday season and brutal economic times, to leave Sellers swinging in the lurch as to what 2013 holds is not only short-sighted, but simply mean-spirited.

Sellers, you are EDC director; no, you’re a county employee answerable to administrator Don Butler; no, wait, you’re in Whoville with the BOCC starring as the Grinch.

Tan Smiley and Ward McDaniel – The hope for the two county commissioners, reaching the midpoint in their first terms, is greater understanding as to the factors that led to their election two years ago.


Voters wanted change to start and with the addition this year of County Commissioner Joanna Bryan there are now three votes on the BOCC that were brought to office on the promise of change in the way the BOCC conducts business.
