Letter: Democratic Committeeman Will Not Seek Second Term

Sean Sharkey 'will continue to fight hard for the people of this town' in his last year as Committeeman

To the Citizens of Lacey Township:

In November of 2010, I was elected to the Township Committee in order to bring a new voice to a governing body that had been under one-party rule for half a decade. Along the way to my election, I met with many people with many different needs. During the last two years while serving I’ve met even more. I enjoy helping the people of this town as much as I can. Whether it is working with various citizens groups, reaching out to an individual with a problem, or sitting on the dais during a town meeting, it has been a pleasure to serve.

One question I have gotten repeatedly since my election is this: “Are you going to run again?” I have thought long and hard about this. I have sat with my family and friends and discussed my political future many times. It is not a decision that I came to lightly. After much thought, I have decided to focus my future in a different direction. I will not be seeking a second term on the Township Committee.

In the remaining months of my term I will continue to fight hard for the people of this town as I have in the past two years. I will continue to work with my fellow committee members on the issues that matter most: taxes, a post-power plant future, quality of life issues, and much more. At the end of this year I intend to make sure that Lacey is in a better position than it was when I took office in 2011. I thank the people of this town and look forward to continuing to serve you for the remainder of this year.

Towns that employed debris-removal contractors other than a state-hired Florida firm achieved savings that, when totaled, amount to millions of dollars of taxpayer money. Florida-based AshBritt Inc. charged towns $21.25 per cubic yard to gather roadside debris and bring it to a collection site within 15 miles. That was nearly double the $11.70 asking price of another Florida company, Bergeron, and other firms, records show

Nothing can change as long as the vote is 3-2..Gilmore still gets the job but lets his underlings go to meetings. The labor lawyer is the same guy that told the committee that they could furlough. How did that one work out

question why didn't the Tc go after the Labor Lawyers O and E insurance instead of sticking it to the tax payers for bad advice? Speaking of bad advice why shouldn't the white castle be allowed to stay open 24 hours when the 3 wa wa s 2 7 11 s and wal mart are all open 24hours?

Frank, I can't answer that question. But I certainly wouldn't hire him as an attorney the following years..The good ole boy club is still thick as thieves

And once the White Castle hires Gilmore and Associates all the red tape will disappear. And they can do whatever they like
