Subject: BB recall petition.
Comments: And I quote "Like Barreda, neither Ladeweski nor his companion indicated whether they support the mayor or support him being removed from office; and Barreda encouraged all city voters to sign the petition, regardless of where they stand on the issue." Does anyone else see the stupidity of this quote? SMH

Subject: BB recall of Mayor
Comments: One more thing I neglected to ask. Will Caryn Hodge, Marketing Director for the Ed Chiles Restaurant Group, be responsible for circulating the recall petition as she circulated to her freinds the petition to initiate the forfeiture proceedings and will it show up at the Beach House? Probably with a wink and a nod from Jack Clarke. The electorate in Bradenton Beach is baffling.

Subject: BB recall of Mayor
Comments: So by reading the biased article printed in this publication it looks like it will be at minimum 5-6 months before a recall election could take place. Let's see the regular election takes place in 11 months. Someone is sure being free with Bradenton Beach taxpayer money. Clarke must really wants the Mayorship of Bradenton Beach as an incumbent.

Subject: BB forfeiture against Mayor Shearon
Comments: Clarke wants Mayor Shearon to recuse himself because he is the subject of the proceedings, but Clarke doesn't feel he should recuse himself? I guess he feels it is okay for him to serve as plaintiff, prosecutor, judge and juror? Has his grab for power robbed him of any shred of rational thought? Oh, and by the way, he evidently thought it would be reasonable to accept legal counsel from the attorney in the audience who is both suing the City and the Mayor - where is his head at. . . never mind, I know where it is. It is undeniable what Clarke's aspirations are. Mr. Clarke is an embarrassment to the City of Bradenton Beach and making a MOCKERY of how municipal government should work.We had current employees that have filed unsubstantiated claims of harrassment now we have an EEOC complaint by a former employee that was fired because she was jailed. Can any normal person see a pattern here and who is counseling these employees to file these types of claims?

Comments: Just check and see who benefits from all of these rentals. Check their names with SUNBIZ. Then see who registered as a hotel and who didn't enforce the current rules. Let the police department make arrests and issue tickets. Move on with this the cats already out of the box.

Subject: 4 way stop sign
Comments: As an 11 year bike- riding resident of Holmes Beach, I have had issues with the 4 way stop sign on the corner of 56th and Holmes Blvd. but never thought to complain until now. This past Saturday night my neighbors dog was hit and killed by someone who ran that stop sign on Holmes Blvd and didn't have the decency to stop. Shame on them. My point?: maybe the city should install one of those "Stop for Pedestrian" signs in the middle of the road -- you might get someone to actually STOP!
