It s true about Charles--- that needing money is not a crime.
But however indifferent you might feel about Marsala having bankrupt himself,--- or the town financially, while using his office to "host" the interests of the construction lobby--you may want to reconsider how the moral bankruptcy he has brought to bare on all of us, has begun to effect everyone's real estate values.
How desirable will property here be, when we are 17 million dollars in debt for a brand new but empty Administrative complex-- because we will have had to contract out multiple Departments and services, that we can no longer afford. No Police! No Public Works! No Planning! All of this is already on the table.
More than anyone!, the development community needs Charles to go and PRONTO,-- even more than your average complacent property owner does!
Developers!- you don't really need Charles as an asset anymore anyway-- His replacement Elizabeth Lewis was appointed over a year ago, waiting in the wings, in anticipation of whatever scandal Charles would eventually be unable to survive.
So the developers need to be the ones to take out their own guy-- lets just get this thing over with and "move forward" before we all need to ask Buckheit for money.
