Letter: Groves Residents Need Answers

“Loxahatchee, South Florida’s Last Frontier” and “Love It and Leave It Alone.” These are mantras that we have put forward for decades. Once we were on the map as the site of a naturist colony (Sun Sport) and a great place to hunt doves. Now we are embroiled in a political quagmire, and it needs to be resolved sooner rather than later.

I participated in Tony Masilotti’s first county commission campaign, but I can learn by my mistakes and I certainly did not support his second, unfortunately successful, bid. Yes, I did support Mr. Ryan Liang during our recent election. I, as much as anyone, now want — nay, demand — to know what the “expletive deleted” went on with the absentee ballots in the Liang camp. Therefore, I am asking all those directly and peripherally involved to come forward and present their side to the public. Of course, advice of their lawyers may unfortunately restrict this.

Allegations are flying all over the place. Please clear these up, and to those who make allegations, be aware that there is such a thing as libel.

We need to get back to the issues at hand: garbage dumping being called mulch, horse manure abuse, finishing the surveys and starting a trail system in earnest, fighting over-development and putting the metastasis of this divisive political cancer into remission.

Disillusioned and frustrated, I thank you for your time and consideration.

Dr. Bill Louda, Loxahatchee Groves
