Commissioners erupt over PAC

“You have the right to question our decisions, but you do not have the right to personal attacks,” he said, directing his remarks to several PAC members in the meeting room. “They know no bounds. It is not about bullying, it is about being a coward.”

McLemore suggested that members of the PAC were “blow-ins” to the county who should just go back to Georgia and Alabama and quit telling elected officials how to act.

Later, McLemore suggested that he wanted people to move to Gulf County but not come intent on telling government what to do.

Williams said the PAC included malicious and cold-hearted people and added his own accusation about alleged acts by the PAC to those detailed by McElroy, who had detailed the same acts before commissioners in August.

Bill Koran, who ran against Yeager for the District 5 seat, came to the podium to note that McLemore made $250,000 while working with BP, itself a conflict, and nearly one-third the entire amount of fine money the county has received to date.

He also challenged commissioners to provide a single instance in which Koran had said something that was not true.

After additional back and forth, commissioners moved to the next issue.
