I know I know – It is for the kids! Right?
Well, OK. We will give you that.
Fine. It is for the Kids, that just graduated from High School as ADULTS. All four of them that participated in the parade and the half dozen others from the class of 21’ that showed up.
Fine, it was for the kids. Who asked them though? Seems that nobody did judging from the turnout. It looked more like a display of power and money than a community sponsored celebration. More like influence than celebration. I guess that had something to do with the fact that the Village Peoples Government was all over the thing. It was NOT citizen driven.
The decorations were over the top. No really – the Tennis Court was draped to make a private area inside of it. The decorations were not inexpensive. It looked like a small time B grade movie set. It even had costumes.
Yepper – as it turns out “volunteers” were given and dawned shirts that look incredibly like STAFF shirts for the Indiantown Village People.
Village Logo included! Oh how nice. These were paid for by Eva Martinez we are told.
We would like to know. Is it OK with you for your TAX dollars to be paying for events? Not just this one. There have been others. If allowed there will be more too.
Remember too, Dowling made sure that we did not spend any money on the 4th of July, but stunts like this for personal PR are OK we suppose. Is that OK with you?
We have a hard time figuring out how a former Army Reserve officer can attempt to square his Marxism with American Duty and principle.
If I am not mistaken Brown claims a military past as well. Sad really.
For the record, the Garcia group and a few others stroked a check to help defray the costs of the Village Peoples event. This is the same Garcia Group that knocked out an Eagles nest and choked us to near death for two weeks when they burned local acreage to the dirt. But you have to do that when you want to asphalt it and build 250 houses on it.
It is interesting that the Garcia group chose to partner with the Village. Why not partner with the residents for their grass roots celebration tomorrow? This one will be for the kids!
We bet the turn out from the PEOPLES event will be over the top. We will be counting the participants to be sure! Thank you to the organizers Addie and Phil for their efforts. Anna Blake and the Chamber for your participation and the list goes on. Do you know who is absent from the planning & heavy lifting?
The Village People, because they could not take the lead and put themselves in the spotlight for re-election. You can bet Antony and a couple others will be front and center to take pictures and press the palms though.
You know who else is not helping? The Garcia Group. Simply because the people are not who they need to get chummy with. It is the Village People they need to be friends with! How else do you build a thousand homes in no time?
Is this starting to get any clearer for everyone? There are those that do not have your interest at heart and you can actually do something about it! As newly minted Adults so can the class of 21’.
You see, cute shirts and cupcakes may make for a good photo op. They obviously don’t make for a successful event however. The Village is a government. Not a civic rotary club or Kiwanis club. It should not behave as such.
Oh, and are you OK with your tax dollars being spent on Staff to attend and put the thing on?
It means flex time for them. So, they can take off from their job and regular duties of serving you to eat cupcakes instead. The government in Indiantown is out of control. The size and abuses of power are pathetic. This is an example of the abuse of trust and lack of stewardship with your money. We know, it is for the kids !
Now, to all of the Grads. Parade or not. You accomplished your goal.
You have attained life’s first milestone. There are many more ahead of you. Please do not look to the government to be your crutch. Look to God. We are Americans. We rely first on God then ourselves. When we list, we have neighbors and friends.
We do not need government or politicos to provide for us. We need government to get out of the way and let us accomplish our goals on our own merit and hard work! Not with self ingratiating handouts.
We wish you luck on your journey into the world and welcome you as adults to our community.
Job Well Done Class of 21′
Hopefully you will register to vote and assist us in getting the bums out of office so we can get back to American Values and Tradition in Indiantown. You know, like fire works on the 4th of July.
