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 city cannot afford to expand the sewer system without taking on additional debt.
Their words - not ours.
This is why they raised your sewer fees. - But hey they didn't raise taxes right?
But we can absolutely afford to borrow an additional $22,000,000 to $30,000,000
Don't question this logic if you do you are a CCL activist.

A couple of years ago some people were saying that Stephanie Lefler had STOLEN the FIREWORKS MONEY!
WOW That is almost too much to believe right?
Why would someone which such of a high profile steal from her fellow citizens?
How could she think that she could get away with it? It is so crazy it must be true!

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

Spoiler alert - yes they did.
