At the BOC meeting on 2/12/2019 the big news was A LOT of people were upset by the potential of their city taxes almost DOUBLING for a 12 year CON. But to people that can't have the reality of that be the headline, they needed to create a new narrative and get out ahead of the story. They wanted the story to be this was mainly the people of North Lakeland and that Mayor Cunningham allowed a guy from North Lakeland to go on a racist rant and the crow loved it. They even posted a deceptive video to "prove it" watch both videos and decide for yourself.

The city is about to us PFM again to provide to advise the city of the financial decision to borrow money to build a High School. They have not proven to be a reliable vendor in the past. Sign the petition asking for a new vendor.
City Hall is packed with Citizens – the Largest crowd I have seen to date - By far. 22 people spoke. Which is amazing considering there was only a 24-hour notice and the meeting was scheduled for 5:00 not 5:30 like past meetings.
The outside hall was so full by 5:30 that some people must have shown up and left because they couldn't see. I show the crowd twice in this video I was so surprised.
Scam update: Attempted explanations to the claims regarding the 65% higher interest rate on the middle school.Written by Super User
Attempted explanations to the claims regarding the 65% higher interest rate on the middle school.
This story is an update to a story we published earlier. In that story we learned that Lakeland TN Mayor Wyatt Bunker intentionally negotiated an interest rate 65% higher than necessary so he could get "extra" money to build a 3.7 million dollar middle school athletic field. This article is found here.
So far there have been two attempts to defend this information none of which have come directly from the Mayor. He wouldn't participate in a recent news channel 24 story at all regarding this matter.

Bunker negotiates a 65% HIGHER interest rate!
Wyatt Bunker is NOT a fiscal conservative like he claims to be. He purposely negotiated for a 65% HIGHER interest rate than the one that was offered to him.
Why? It was so he could receive $2,500,000 in "extra" money. This money was misrepresented to the public and it was only because of a FOI (freedom of information request) that we know the details of the CON (Capital Outlay Note) that was used to finance the middle school.
The purpose of the "extra" money was to build $3,500,000 worth of athletic facilities for the middle school.
Note in all the discussions about the financing it was always discussed that it would be $20,000,000 at a fixed interest rate. It was NOT $20,000,000 and it was NOT a fixed interest rate.
If you or me were to apply for a loan the most important number to a bank would be our debt to income ratio.

For years the CCL has told you that if you factor in the fire fees that Lakeland has the highest taxes of any of the other local municipalities (excluding Memphis).
For years every time we have tried to inform you of this Matt Wright has unleashed tactic #1. The CCL lies.
After reviewing some screen shots we have found the one person (maybe) that Matt Wright wouldn't accuse of lying.....himself.

I moved to Lakeland about 6 years ago. About a year in I was introduced to the CCL. It has been a roller coaster ride for me and them. Sometimes I am on the ride and sometimes I am not.
I moved to Lakeland hoping for the best and expecting it. It is an awesome community but (like most) has some issues. I have seen and been through a lot since moving here. Quite a bit of it has been unfair and politically motivated. I can deal with it and have but I don’t want it to continue and I want to protect others.
I like a lot of CCL people have been targeted and threatened for my SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT political beliefs. Right now, I am fine with building a High School, after we get in commercial growth to support it. Is that so radically different than the beliefs of “Yes” people? Is it so radical that our local politicians and others should try to character assassinate me and others?
I have recorded a series of videos that I will be releasing and I will be telling my story. I know what will happen as a result of this. I will be targeted more. I am sure our local politicians will continue to lead this attack. The CCL cannot stop these attacks. The people that ARE NOT CCL can. Do not participate in them. You will be encouraged to do so. The only people that can hold a group of people accountable are in the group itself, not outside the group. If you are a good person you will put a stop to this.
I want to encourage others to come forward and tell your story. It doesn’t have to be on video unless you would like. Please contact me if you feel you have been unfairly targeted, slandered, attacked, misrepresented etc. The more people that come forward with their stories the less power these politicians have.
The videos can be found here - WATCH WITH AN OPEN MIND
