Shame on the Hillsborough BOCC

Where is the leadership? Where is the outrage? Is the BOCC in bed with Kevin White? Who elected these people? Oh wait, we did.

By Chris Ingram

Are any of my Tampa friends as outraged as I am that the BOCC let Kevin White have a “do-over?” Where’s the outrage (and accounability?) What kind of message do you think the commissioners are sending to our kids that they let this little piece of crap have a “do over” after he costs the county nearly a half a million bucks (defending his sexual harassment case in which he was found GUILTY!)?

Why don’t they stand up to him and tell him to go pound sand? Why haven’t they called for his resignation? You wanna know why? There isn’t a one of them any better than Kevin White.  They’re all afraid of pissing off some small constituency of supporters. And they all have fragile egos and a low sense of self-esteem which prevents them from doing right. They are all, in a word, politicians.

But we elected them. We get what we deserve. Where’s the outrage? Throw all the incumbents out. And lets let the taxpayers get a “do-over” — for once!

Post your comments and let us know what you think about Kevin White, Renee Lee, and the Hillsborough County Commission (and all of its leadershipless commissioners who should be ASHAMED of themselves for playing this game with taxpayer’s and their money).
