In Their Own Words (11)
See what our elected officials and others have previously said and how it is different from what they are saying today.
Lakeland now has a PAC (political action committee) they are allowed to raise unlimited funds for politicians.
They are claiming that anyone who includes the fire fees homeowners pay in their effective tax rates are:
- Being Irresponsible
- Misleading the citizens
- Pushing False Narratives
- Disseminating Inaccuracies
- Manipulating Anxiety
all for POLITICAL GOALS

After the BOC meeting on 3/20/2019 there was a situation that resulted in Commissioner Roman being detained by the Shelby County Sherriff's officers

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.

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.

“The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing” -unknown
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

At the BOC meeting on 7-12-2018 two of our BOC commissioners mention an ominous and "disturbing" CCLA flyer.
We got our hands on a copy (we had NEVER seen it)

This really is crazy. A neighbor had a (joke) sign in her yard for 4 hours and code enforcement sends her a 7 page citation.
Our MAYOR has had a TARP on his roof for over 2 years.
You cant make this stuff up!

You may have seen video out takes of candidates that have opposed the Yes group agenda.

Taking videos and chopping them up to show you what people have said is interesting and I guess we will now follow suit.

It certainly is hard to keep up with everything our Board of Commissioners and Lakeland School Board has to say to us these days! We understand, so we have compiled a list of things they said to get elected and kept saying until Spring of 2014. Remember, they were asking for your vote and support then...
