That sinking feeling

We are all on a great ship named Hillsborough County, and our commissioners are the officers on watch.

The ship is sinking and 12% of the passengers are in lifeboats.

We don’t need consultants offering up 25-year refurbishing plans; we need immediate action from each of the commissioners. 

  • Commissioner Ferlita, prepare the remaining lifeboats.
  • Commissioner Norman, get the engines running.
  • Commissioner White, put out the fires.
  • Commissioner Higginbotham, start the pumps.
  • Commissioner Sharpe, send out distress calls.
  • Commissioner Beckner, pull the crew together.
  • Commissioner Hagan, resign your commission.
                                                           We need a new captain.
