WCOA Pensacola speaks becomes Marty speaks
August 7, 2006
Marty admits that he met Quint Studer and proponents for the park – on December 28, 2004. He didn’t report it at the time.
He and Luke don’t like the fact that the park proponents lobbied the entire council. Although they don’t like planner Ray Gindroz – they are upset that higher costs may delay the construction of some components. Knowing if the components were included that they still wouldn’t support the park.
Then Marty talked about losing control because of the lease (forgetting to remind listeners that council approves all leases)- but then SOC has members are pushing selling all or part of the 30 acres -which the City would have no control at all
He sees himself and Luke McCoy as positive people and that Friends of the Waterfront Park as the negative ones.
Then Luke began to call CMP supporters ‘lapdogs’ and ‘bottom-feeders’. Said that the listeners may not like his opinion, but his opinion isn’t bought.
