Unless I'm mistaking or we are talking about a different kind of hearings, there were actually two public hearings on the issuance of the Special use Zoning Permit as required under Fl. Statutes, the one I was at lasted over 11 hours. These were Quasi-Judicial and required the commissioners to disclose in any conversation they had with the applicate in public.
I gave a presentation to the public and the Commission, Sullivan did not disclose any conversations, however we know he did meet with them.
Leslie did disclose but was extremely vague, but at least she still met the guide lines.
Sullivan pushed his chair back and refused to watch my power point or even pay attention. This really ticked me off.
I been doing this kind of work for over 30 years and am considered an expert in water supply by five water management districts, the national groundwater foundation, and the Central Florida Water Initiative.
For some reason Leslie, chose to believe CEMEX even through they did not present there argument in public nor they did offer one shred of factual information to dispute my findings during the hearing.
After looking over his history I cannot find one major accomplishment in his entire political career. He was a Council Member, a Mayor, a School Board Member and a County Commissioner with no record major accomplishments, at least that I can find on. I have even ask him directly. This disturbs me.
This is one of the reasons I felt it necessary to use this and his residence issues in my campaign. There's a side of Mr. Sullivan the people must know.
P.S. The Planning and Zoning Board also recommended denial based on the information CEMEX either would provide or refused to provide.
Please let me know if there was some other kind of hearing the County requires that I may not be aware of. I going on what the City and the State requires on all zoning related issues.
