Where Is Public Enemy
Number One’s Local Support?
Editorial by Anthonie P. Barrett
Special to The Lehigh Acres Gazette
With the election coming within a month where is Mike Welch’s local support? Check out the Welch campaign report – Click here.
Most of Welch’s campaign contributions were made from outside to his district (98.3 percent), including four contributions from Political Action Committees (PACs): $500.00 from Citizens for Housing and Urban, $500 from Floridians For Preserving Sight, $500 from Committee Supporting Utilities and $500 from Teachers United For Better Schools. Welch also received a $500 Florida Lobbying Services, Inc out of Tallahassee.
What does this PAC’s have to do with Lehigh Acres and/or the East County Water Control District (ECWCD)? All of these PACs have two things in common. One – they all have the same address: 120 S. Monroe Street Tallahassee, FL 32301. And two, the PACs have been linked for years to Florida Senator Mike Bennett and Florida Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto.
Looking back into past campaign reports for Bennett and Benacquisto, the Puppet Master Eugen Borosch has given tens of thousands of dollars in cash or in-kind donations to Bennett and Benacquisto. So now they use PACs to try to influence the ECWCD election.
Is there a big stout secret in the closet of the Puppet Master Eugen Borosch?
VOTE NO!! TO MICHAEL WELCH!!
