Seats #3 and #4 heading for runoffs

first_img Orange County poll workers went to cash their checks, and da’ bounced. Orange County Supervisor said someone was suppose to put the funds in a separate account. Duh. He said it was a vendor problem. Duh. Glad I didn’t apply for that job, duh. Is this de’ ja vu? Duh. Curtis Wayne Norton Jr I know you wont publish this, but after 39 years in office I think it is disgraseful that a candidate would have the gall to run again, considering the way Downtown Apopka looks. Mr. Arrowsmith has had MANY chances to address Downtown Apopkas problems and has not done so ! Reply It was reported on tv that Trump was left off the ballot in parts of Florida, and in other parts, Trump was listed as Rump, and no telling what else went on in Florida-duh.

How about two?Commissioner Bill Arrowsmith amassed 4,489 votes to lead the way in the Seat #4 election, but with 47% of the votes it was not enough to avoid the runoff with first-time candidate Kyle Becker. Becker had 3,611 votes and 38% of the total. Upstart Young Kim kept both candidates from getting the needed majority by claiming 1,464 votes (15%).In Seat #3, Doug Bankson edged Commissioner Sam Ruth with 3,875 votes (41%) to Ruth’s 3,426 (36%). They are headed to a runoff as well because of a surprising performance by first-time candidate Alice Nolan, who received 2,148 votes (23%).The runoff will be Tuesday, April 12th. March 15, 2016 at 9:19 pm Is this the first time in Apopka history, for two run-offs? If that is the official results. Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Here it is round 2 of the Apopka City Council run-offs for not one, but TWO seats! Historic, it think, I don’t remember two run-offs before. Anyway, it is time to let Mr. Becker know that he cannot do as he pleases. You are a candidate running for Apopka City Council, and you are to be held accountable and to follow the campaign election rules as everyone else who has ran or is still running. Number 1. Your Kyle Becker banner or sign is STILL UP attached to the Orange County West Orange Trail guardrails in front of the Pines of Wekiva subdivision. You need to move it! How arrogant you are! Number 2. You took it upon yourself to go and put a ladder down at Alonzo Williams Park, and put up some new basket ball hoops. You WERE NOT AUTHORIZED TO DO THAT WORK! The city has employees to do that. If you had of fell off that ladder and gotten seriously injured, you WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN COVERED BY THE CITY’S WORKMAN COMP INSURANCE AND YOU AND THE CITY BOTH COULD OF BEEN IN TROUBLE! This is nothing but arrogance, Kyle, and it speaks wonders of how you think you can do as you please. You seem like a nice guy, but you are not above the laws and rules of the campaign, Kyle Becker! Remove your sign!

His fine credibility is confirmed by every one of those votes! Let’s all go back out there on April 12th and once again confirm our trust in Bill’s governing capabilities.

Anybody in town, or elsewhere, maybe even an action figure, want to volunteer and go yank out the cattails along the frontage of Dream Lake Park??? Reply Reply Regarding the splash pad. I suggested putting it in KLNP, a central location, to all. I was on the Parks and Rec. Advisory Committee, and was told by the staff, that if it were put there, it would make the Women’s Club members mad. I asked why, when they only have the art and foliage festival 2 days out of the year, and that they could cut the valve off to the splash pad, for the festival, as to not mess up people’s art work. I tried to talk last night, at the council about the splash pad, but wasn’t allowed. I was going to say, that I the pad, must be at a location that has a lighting (THOR) alarm system, or it will need one, like at the ball fields, or nearby enough to hear the alarm, because kids are suppose to be ordered out immediately upon the first thunder or lightening. We are in the lightening capital of the world, in Central Florida! Nearby metal railings, anything like that, high trees, nearby water, all that stuff, could attract lightening. Kids must wear rubberized wet diaper bottoms too, for sanitary concerns also. Just saying……….
