FRIENDS FOREVER. WALTER MCKENZIE HAS BEEN THE LONGEST STANDING COUNCILMAN IN WHITE SPRINGS BUT WHY CAN’T HE REMEMBER WHAT THE COUNCIL DECIDED IN ALL THESE YEARS. AN EXAMPLE WAS WHEN HE ASKED THE OTHER COUNCIL MEMBERS WHY AN INCREASE IN THE WATER RATES HAD NOT BEEN DONE. WALTER SHOULD HAVE ASKED HIMSELF WHY HE HAS NOT SERVED THE CITIZENS AND GIVEN SMALL INCREMENTS IN RATES. WHAT THE COUNCIL HAS DONE THESE DAYS TO THE CITIZENS IS UNHEARD OF AND THAT IS BECAUSE, LIKE NORTH FLORIDA BROADBAND WHICH IS ON DEATH ROW, OUR TOWN OFFICIALS DO NOT KNOW HOW TO BUDGET OR HANDLE MONEY. AND NOW THEY ARE AGAIN TAKING $124,624 SEWER AND WATER REVENUE INTO THE GENERAL FUND. WOW!
What has Walter McKenzie done for the Town? If you inquired he would go on for hours as to how good he is but really, attending meetings and speaking a lot does not help the town if you are not willing to work with all its citizens. Sadly it is my opinion that McKenzie doesn’t even realize that he does not know what he is doing. He does attend meetings and is quick to protect his friends but uses malice towards those that are fighting for their rights and have competing ideas. He always is right; just ask him.
