  Lake Worth STANTON PITCHED OUT

CITY MANAGER STANTON BOOTED OUT

In this joyous season, I am celebrating the potential for renewal in Lake Worth which began with a bold move to clean out city management from the top down.

From Paul Boyer to Susan Stanton… inept, corrupt, wasteful and often cruel leadership disregarded the public and common sense honesty and openness.

Yes, I know there are those who are disappointed to see Stanton fired but dwelling on one side of her performance while ignoring the other side of the story… is delusional.

  Lake Worth Taxpayers bail out Compass

Taxpayers keep paying - the compass building

Not once, not twice, but many times LWM has received calls about poor morale at the utility and other departments. As we all know morale starts at the top and trickles down so it was interesting to hear that LW employees are so crammed for space that they now have four employees working full time in the lunch room at the utility.

In the midst of our financial crisis, where the burden of keeping the city solvent has fallen on residents who are paying additional taxes in the form of 30% more for electricity (projected 48% within two years) and water rates increasing through the roof… the city manager and commission decided to spend more of your money to bail out Compass to whom we were already renting 12,000 sq feet of premium office space a stones throw from city hall… for a lousy $83.00 a month!

  Lake Worth On File: William Coakley for Mayor

William Coakley for Mayor

MUSIC - "Throw the bums out" featuring sound clips of city manager Susan Stanton CLICK HERE

The Democracy Project is my way of saying "I will listen to you." This tool will give you a voice in your government allowing for continual polling of public opinion.

The DEMOCRACY PROJECT is the first of its kind secure local voting system which I introduced two and a half years ago. It levels the playing field and for the first time will make public participation in government CONVENIENT AND EFFECTIVE reducing special interest influence, holding public officials accountable and providing Quality Control for government. It is ready to go NOW and has been fully tested. It will provide the public and the commission unprecedented information about the public will... an essential tool to bring TRUST back in government bring Peace to the city by legitimizing decisions with a consensus. The Democracy Project insures that government can become proactive instead of reactive as we see now.

Suzanne Mulvehill adopted COAKLEY PLAN C ("C" for Coakley) which was developed about 4 years ago. Suzanne used it and materials on this site as the central core of her platform to get elected in 2008. This was another long term vision I had to restore a sense of pride in the city. My ideas included upper level dinning (I will try to post pics taken from the upper level outside), hosting temporary space services for corporations, a museum since the site qualifies as an archeological site, an auxilliary commission meeting room, and possibly a gym which at one time... it had. Below is the link to the Lake Worth Beach History published about 4 years ago by LWM.

  Lake Worth Why I want to be a Strong Mayor

Why I want to be a Strong Mayor

Here is what I see for Lake Worth… the potential for greatness and the reestablishment of its preeminence as the Jewel of the Gold Coast. But what’s the reality? The reality is… left on its current path; Lake Worth will never achieve more than it has become …which to most residents is not acceptable given its potential.

  Lake Worth Ban on Lake Worth Media continues...

Ban on Lake Worth Media continues...

When city manager Susan Stanton blocked city computers from visiting LWM, no one knew what would be next. This kind of censorship is more common in dictatorships and communist regimes than coming from a local government where the city manager fires most of code enforcement because she doesn't want "a police state," says she encourages opposing points of view and believes in open and transparent government.

  Lake Worth City blocks employees from LWM, but not other sites

Subject: mayoral candidate website blocked by city of lake worth

Dear Mrs Lopez,

A number of employees have reported to me that they are being blocked from accessing my website http://lakeworthmedia.com. When employees try to access my site they have a blue screen with the following image:


Employees also reported that they WERE able to access the following sites:

http://www.lakeworthtalk.com/ http://lwt.ourlivechat.com/ http://wesblackman.blogspot.com/ http://www.goldenforcommissioner.com/ http://votevarela.com/ http://www.javierformayor.com/ http://www.laurencemcnamaraformayor.com/


The implication is that the city is trying to influence the outcome of an election by selectively targeting a candidate and his website.

I would like to hear from you asap as to whom instructed Information Technology to place this block and for what reasons did it target not only my site but Lynn Anderson's site, http://lynn-a.blogspot.com ... although hers has been unblocked recently.

Thank you,

William Coakley
