Not a surprise considering tHe part Levin has played since Hayward was first elected. Where did Hayward's first Executive Assistant come from?

Uncle Fred said it, therefore it must be true. GTHOH...Of course all of the peasants and royal servants ought to just bow down and listen to King Levin. Everyone should just ignore the Category 5 Hurricane that Maren said would hit City Hall and has finally made landfall. It's amazing how one's perspective can be so different from those who have witnessed and experienced the horror from the 7th floor first hand. Now you finally come from behind the veil because your personal "do-boy" is rightfully under fire. Yeah Fred, a.k.a. "The Wizard of Oz" maybe you should give your boy Ashton a.k.a. "The Scarecrow" a brain so he can speak for himself. In your diatribe, you're quick to give Hayward praise for things others were responsible for doing and then insult everyone's intelligence by exaggerating his accomplishments while minimizing his catastrophic failures! On the Upside, I'm sure that it's comforting for him to know an attorney like you has his back; I'm afraid that he's going to need more help from you very soon!

I could be wrong but I think Levin recorded a loan for $1 million to Pair for the Hallmark School. Levin has never recorded any loans before to anyone!

Dear Mr. Levin, you forgot to mention all of the City Hall "hook ups" Ashton has provided for you and some of the other Pensacola Elite!

Hey Mr. Levin!! I think you got it all wrong bro! The hard working small business owners downtown are the reason for all the people who shop and dine here. We work our a**es off to provide good products and take care of customers. THAT IS WHY business is good downtown. NOT because of the cocaine mayor and his staff and lawyers like you who fund their habits and egos so that you can be the town puppet master. Give us businesses credit where credit is due!!!! The PEOPLE of this town make it great, NOT the politicians and back room deal makers. I thinks Studer is not a back room deal maker either. Go Quint!
