|There was a large turnout last September to hear Asst. State Attorney Al Johnson. Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell organized this meeting with the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office (additional photos below).|
From an article in The Palm Beach Post last November is this quote:
“We get 10 ODs a week, and two or three of them are dying. If this was Al-Qaeda or a group of terrorists attacking America, we’d be all over it. We’d be addressing it and we’d be throwing money at it. We’re not even touching the tip of it.”
—Lake Worth City Commissioner Andy Amoroso, a member of the State Attorney’s Sober Home Task Force.
A lot has changed since last September hasn’t it? Here’s the latest from Christine Stapleton at the Post.
It was at this meeting Commissioner McVoy tried to interrupt the proceedings and make a statement. It didn’t work. At this meeting he couldn’t get away with the grandstanding he does at City Commission meetings on a regular basis. Use this link to see that part of the video.
Now that McVoy is up for re-election again (first elected in 2010), the frequency of his lectures, stagecraft and “riding of coattails”, e.g., Commissioner Amoroso, has increased quite a bit.
