ECWCD CHAIRMAN AND MANAGER SPEAKS OUT OF TURN
East County Water Control District Chairman Nate Stout and Mgr/ employee David Lindsay misrepresented themselves by speaking for the ECWCD at the redistricting hearing in Lehigh Acres. Kudos to Kevin Shea and Joe Whalen spoke as individuals and did not emply that they represented the opinion of the group they belong to. Mr. Stout who is now a minority of one on the water board is looking for publicity if he decides to run for reelection and mgr. Lindsay has been warned before not to speak on behalf of the water board as he is an employee and does not make policy for the board. Mgr. Lindsay was also warned not to hawk the cost sharing plans of the South Florida water district plans to get money out of Lehigh to pay for their projects.He was told to concentrate on maintaining the ecwcd and concentrate on making up the $100,000 income shortage this next year.We hear both the empty seat and Stouts seat will have new tax cutting candidates running to fill them in 2012.
