I Stumbled Over The Mayor Pimping for Pate Again

You never know where you will find the Underside of the Upside of Pensacola!

As noted here previously, I have tracked the exploits of Jerry Pate's landscaping company and Bridgetender Steve Dana's inappropriate landscaping plan and placement at the corner of Airport and Davis.  The plan led to what other are calling the "crosswalk to no where"
















I also detailed how the property owner is having to rip out Jerry Pate's landscaping and put in sod in the state right of way.

We Will Rip it Out!

Well, we all know that Pate and Hayward are like peas and carrots.  So it is of little surprise that FDOT has been lobbied by the Mayor's office regarding this PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT.  In the email below from FDOT to the WFRPC, note who the State has been contacted by.
  1. The Property Owner
  2. The Landscaping Company
  3. AND THE MAYOR'S OFFICE
Do all street corner commercial projects get Mayor's Office lobbying??

What do you get for that?  Masters, Sugar Bowl, Alabama Game, World Golf Hall of Fame?

Subject: RE: Airport and Davis Hwy

Gary, we have checked with our Permit staff and Councilwoman Myers has been in contact with the Department to try and remedy the issues at the subject location.  The Department is working to correct the guardrail issue on Airport Rd and are coordinating with the property owner for the removal of landscaping along the FDOT r/w at this intersection.  To date there has been involvement by the property owner, Landscape company and the Mayor’s Office.  The Department will continue to try and correct this situation.  If you have any additional questions please let us know. 

Thanks.

The Mayor's job is to speed down to the Spaceport and travel to all those trade shows learning the Art of Mayorial Perception. When he is home it's to shill for his peeps at every turn.

There must be some kind of connection to the owner of the property and Hayward and Pate.

OR...Pate is given ALL corner work projects. I wonder.

Anatomy of a kickback - developer is responsible, by Code, to install sidewalks on new projects. Developer hires Pate to do illegal landscaping. Developer, Pate and Mayor lobby to get state to do the sidewalks. All know full well that Sharro Myers will jump on the ADA issue for them, making their ruse easier. State installs sidewalks, Pate get paid for illegal plants, developer pockets sidewalk money they should have spend. Pate and Developer contribute gifts and donations to Mayor. It's as simple as that folks.

Can I have the old plants, or are they going to be relocated to Hayward's back yard? They look pretty nice.

“Ta Đệ Ngũ Khinh Nhu nguyện ý, vì bọn họ lưng đeo một cái ác danh gian thần không thế! Ta càng nguyện ý dùng bất cứ thủ đoạn gì, không quản là không biết xấu hổ vô sỉ, hay là hạ lưu dơ bẩn! Những tội danh này đó ta cam lòng nhận lấy! Bởi vì ta mỗi một lần an bài, mỗi một cái âm mưu, đều có thể làm cho tướng sĩ của ta sống thêm rất nhiều người!”

“Đây chính là mục đích của ta!” Đệ Ngũ Khinh Nhu đau kịch liệt nói: “Ta thi tiển âm mưu, chẳng sợ ta hao hết tâm huyết, chỉ có thể làm cho tướng sĩ sống thêm một người, cũng đáng!”

“Cho nên đối với Quân Vương tòa lần này sai lầm, ta thực thất vọng!” Đệ Ngũ Khinh Nhu ngửa đầu, nhắm mắt nói: “Bởi vì, cái này sẽ có mấy trăm hoặc là mấy ngàn huynh đệ dũng sĩ, chết trận ở sa trường! Ta... Không cam tâm!”

“Ta không cam tâm! Ta không cam tâm...” Đệ Ngũ Khinh Nhu một tay che ngực, thở dài một tiếng, thanh âm khàn khàn, tựa như là từ bên trong lồng ngực buồn rống đi ra.

“Tướng gia!” Một tiếng chỉnh tề rống to, đại sảnh bên trong, hơn ba mươi vị tướng lãnh quân đội Đại Triệu tối cao cấp đồng thời đứng lên, sau đó hướng Đệ Ngũ Khinh Nhu quỳ xuống!

Mỗi người bên trong ánh mắt, đều hàm chứa kích động lệ quang!

Đệ Ngũ Khinh Nhu nói một phen cũng không phải là là biện giải, cũng không phải là giải quyết nghi ngờ trong lòng mọi người, cái này triệt để hoàn toàn chính là lý giải!

Status? = Forgotten.

Moulton's letter (dated Sept. 22, 2015): "All trees, shrubbery and sprinkler systems currently located in DOT right of way at the corner of Davis Highway and Airport Blvd. will be removed and replaced with sod in 21 days from the date of this letter or sooner."

Today's date: April 13, 2016

What's happened in the mean time? ... Drive by. Take a look. ... Weeds. lots of weeds. No apparent maintenance. No apparent care. ... With all of the shrubbery, how was the land supposed to be efficiently mowed? Was the plan to have a disproportionate amount of labor (for what it is: right of way) maintain the ground with string trimmers and manual weeding?

Maybe there was a typo in the letter and it was supposed to be 21 WEEKS, not days. ... Wait... It's been more than 29 weeks... Guess it wasn't a typo.

Gotta 'love' Pensacola politicians. (Note: Sarcasm. Heavy, heavy sarcasm.)
