Lesley Blackner may be the most cheered and feared woman in Florida. She is the initiator of Amendment 4 which says development is out of control.http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=99asbrdab&et=1103762077688&s=1229&e=001xZI9qdF8r3L1I6KFV8TADvpeBay62vo_YIB0RAf7G_Li9Fo43TGOQp3wK4L1X9mkJM_jBLBwYQcNE_ZcYyRcFLKzGNl6yRrmvV7HJyv0RJGamapQ4fWqmH08H5PfjQ45
Here is the opinion of the lady who started it all, please read this article. It states facts and shows why people are against it -- people like Senator Mike Bennett. It's all about keeping the power in the hands of politicians. They don't want us to have a vote on the future of our neighborhoods. We need to stop these power-peddlers, who are destroying what was once called the Sunshine State.
When Lesley Blackner spoke at our CV Delegate Meeting and said the County Commissioners cannot control themselves it certainly resonated with me.
"We have government of the developer, by the developer and for the developer," Blackner has said.
She adds that "people in the community have rights, too - not just people in the development community."
As Florida condos sit empty, voters enter battle on growth
If you haven't got the message yet, here it is: Florida condos sit empty -- and the developers want to build more. The more empty condos and homes we have, the lower the property value of your home. Is that what you want? Don't get scared by the propaganda of special interest. No jobs get lost if Amendment 4 passes -- there are sufficient plans in place to quadruple Florida's population without making any amendments. It's all about power and money -- definitely not about our welfare!
