Citizens United

Dear Editor,

Gulf County citizens reaffirmed their commitment to stand against the County Commissioners recent decision changing Land Development Regulations immediately affecting Beacon Hill Veterans Memorial Park.

Approximately 40 Gulf County citizens held a cookout at Veterans Park to discuss the latest developments in the lawsuit filed against the county Sunday afternoon. They braved meeting between thunderstorms reflecting the determination to make the County Commissioners undo their decision which they consider illegal.

Attorney Pat Floyd representing Bo Williams spoke to the group explaining the current status of the suit to include the latest attempt by the Commissioners to avoid answering questions as to why they made the decision under oath.

The fear amongst the Gulf County Citizens supporting this action is if this is left unchallenged and allowed to pass then our beautiful community will soon look like Panama City or Fort Walton Beach with dense construction, congestion and heavier crime.

One individual spoke out and said we live here because we love this place and if we wanted to live in Panama City we would. People interested in joining this effort to protect Gulf County should see Barbara Radcliff at the “No Name Café” downtown Port St Joe who can take donations and provide more information.
