Gulf County politics

Published: Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 04:41 PM.

Dear Editor:

Many "Letters to Editor" during the last few months have expressed concern about the inept, incoherent and sometimes incomprehensible public policies and political activities in Gulf County, culminating with Katherine Shimonis' "We breathe water".

A partial explanation to those questions is contained in my email to Barry Sellers, Executive Director, Chamber of Commerce.

Mr. Sellers:

I am withdrawing from the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce and request a refund of Retrac's membership fees. It is obvious that our membership is incompatible with established Chamber "modus operandi."

David Warriner, the host of Gulf County Chamber's Networking at Noon, scheduled Oct. 24 at the Thirsty Goat, cancelled me as the scheduled speaker. He felt that my presentation, "Business owners are citizens, too!" a discussion of how Chamber members can protect their businesses from commercial predators, financial manipulators or autocratic banking services, using the U.S. Constitution, was, "Too Controversial.”

The U.S. Constitution is TOO CONTROVERSIAL to discuss at a social gathering of Gulf County Chamber of Commerce members? WOW!  I did not realize that the protocol for Gulf County residency required surrendering ones U.S. citizenship. I can't do that. I took an Oath.
