  • It will be interesting to see if they take the voices of those in the minority over the voices of the majority who spoke out in opposing the motion last year. Really wouldn’t surprise me if they did. Two-Faced Harvey will be in attendance trying to save face unless he’s looking to hide somewhere else.

    This is just a dog and pony show for them in the hopes it will hold off state government a little longer.

    You progressive Democrats – Welcome to the Donkey Show! Many of you are and always will be, willing participants.

  • It makes more sense and less controversial to simply convert empty, vacant commercial properties to high density residential. Where utilities already have capacity. But do it for OWNER OCCUPIED condos, and not more rentals for absentee landlords 🇺🇸

  • Affordable housing= free housing or government assisted housing….the mask wearing Marxists on the CC are trying to implement great reset at the local level to end homelessness. Desantis just needs to come in like a SWAT team on Monday morning and trespass them from city hall and appoint new commissioners to get us out of the financial mess they caused the utility ratepayers and the property taxpayers.
