Public Enemy Number
One’s Dirty Money Trail
Editorial by Anthonie P. Barrett
Special to The Lehigh Acres Gazette
Michael Welch’s money trail goes deep and wide with funding coming from political action committees (PACs) in Tallahassee such as the Citizens for Housing & Urban Growth and Floridians for Preserving Sight.
So what do these PACs, like Citizens for Housing & Urban Growth and Floridians for Preserving Sight have to do with Lehigh Acres and or the East County Control District? Are Welch’s supporters trying to sell out Lehigh Acres? Or does his Puppet Master, Eugen Borosch, have an agenda for the community of Lehigh Acres that does not include the voters of Lehigh Acres?
Currently Welch is having a campaign reception on Sept. 19, 2012, outside of Lehigh Acres. Why outside of Lehigh Acres? Is Welch afraid of the voters of Lehigh Acres? His reception is hosted by Senator Mike Bennett, Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto, Senator Garrett Ricter, Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott, Lee County Commissioner John Manning, Cecil Pendergrass, Tax Collector Larry Hart, Lee County Clerk of Court elect Linda Doggett, Syd Kitson, Eugen and Conchita Borosch, Tom Danahy, Adele Higgins, Elinor and Domenic Scricca, Carole Green, L. Rodhers Wells, Jr., Brenda Skupny, Michel Doherty, Michael Reitmann and Tom and Pam Cronin.
Impressive laundry list of supporters. What do all these Welch supporters have in common? They ALL do not live in Lehigh Acres. They cannot vote for Welch. So Welch is trying to raise special interest money to fund his campaign. Why?
Is Welch the middle man needed when Puppet Master Eugen Borosch wants to donate money to the campaigns of the senators, commissioners, sheriff, tax collector and even the clerk of court elect?
The time is ripe to save Lehigh Acres from career politicians like Michael Welch. One of many puppets bought and paid for to do the bidding of their masters who cram their campaign bank accounts with tens of thousands of special interest dollars.
When the people know the truth, they will not allow Lehigh Acres to be raped by incumbent Michael Welch and let him continue gorging at the public trough.
SEND A MESSAGE TO OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS!
BE CAREFUL WHO YOU LEND YOUR NAME TO SUPPORT!
VOTE NO!! TO MICHAEL WELCH!!
