It was good to see that the new Wellington Village Council is fulfilling its obligation to Wellington’s own Super PAC. I had been concerned that they might actually do their job and represent the people of Wellington, but their recent actions have allayed my fears of that.
We keep hearing how out-of-state Super PACs are trying to influence congressional elections in Florida so that their party will gain control in the U.S. Senate. Well, at least our Super PAC is local — or is it? Could it be a one-man Super PAC who is a very wealthy part-time resident of Wellington? Well, who cares if he is only part time. He is now the king of Wellington with his own council, and how many communities actually have their own king? He was powerful enough to flood our mailboxes and phone lines with lies and innuendoes that defeated our prior mayor and two council candidates.
Who cares if only a small percentage of eligible voters actually voted, and who cares if his candidates won by only a small amount after recount. They don’t need the people of Wellington behind them when they have a king and his money and influence supporting them as long as they do his bidding and continually attack his enemy, the evil Wellington Equestrian Partners. I mean, what has Wellington Equestrian Partners done for Wellington, other than pour millions into the equestrian center and bring millions of dollars into the Wellington economy? How can you compare that to the temporary loan of a sports trophy to the village?
Yes, the new council must fulfill its obligation to protect king and castle. They must not allow anything that produces noise or traffic in the vicinity of his castle, even if it means tearing down the previously approved dressage center and making dressage riders go away from Wellington. I mean, who needs their money if it is going to upset our king? Yes, new Wellington Village Council, just keep fulfilling your obligations to our king since it appears that the residents of Wellington are too complacent to really care what you or he does anyway. You just need to pray that they don’t wake up and realize whom you really serve.
