Did you catch this story from Brian Entin at Channel 5/WPTV about the Lake Worth Beach/Casino?

Watch video here: Changes Coming to Lake Worth Beach?

This is an excellent report by Brian Entin. Question: how much are you as a taxpayer willing to subsidize a complex with a failed business plan?

The Lake Worth Beach/Casino is losing money and is deeply in debt. All thanks to a previous commission and a city manager (since fired) that didn't know what they were doing. You might recognize a familiar face in the picture below:
What's interesting is this: since this photo was taken there has never been a reunion by those responsible to celebrate their work. It's like they all scurried from a crime scene; they hope no one remembers they were the ones responsible for the mess we have today.

Look closely at the photo above: these people have cost you a tremendous amount of money. You're still paying for their mistakes; and many others like this one here:

You left René Varela out. I don't think it would have happened without him. It may have been expensive but we should be be very grateful that it got done, finally. The perfect is the enemy of the good.

The worst commission and city manager EVER?
