New BOCC chair already needs re upholstering

So, new Hillsborough BOCC chairman Al Higginbotham feels he needs outside advice on who he should appoint to the “independent” City-County Planning Commission?

Why not call on help from a familiar face, someone who has come before the County Commission many times asking for special treatment for his developer/clients?

Why not Vincent Marchetti?

He would certainly be an impartial judge as to who should be making land use planning recommendations for The County.

The front-page article in the Tampa Tribune quotes Al and Vin as saying they have done nothing illegal and certainly nothing that should question anyone’s ethics in this matter. 

Watch the newspaper public notices boys and girls to see how long it takes for the now dead I-4 Corridor (rural-land-rape) Project to be resurrected.

Say, wasn’t Vin involved with getting that OK’d for his client and wasn’t that Al who voted with the minority to approve it? 

It is going to be a long two years until voters get another say on who represents them on the BOCC. 

Who knows, maybe the world WILL end in 2012 and it just won’t matter.
 I’m betting the world won’t end and it WILL matter.

  1. Another great post. Great graphic and was created for Hillsborough. fastened you seatbelts (no pun intended) it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

    OH, Higginbotham has a fatal disease…TOO MANY YEARS SPENT IN TALLY.

    Wafting money in his direction will also have him running for the correct answer in his pea-brain….

    He still thinks he had or has a conflict on interest with the BRANDON COMMUNITY HYSTERICAL HURRICANE SHELTER….hahahaha
