More On Addie Greene Ethics Complaint
Update on the ethics complaint filed against Addie Greene.
Greene became a key player in the $600 million Scripps project last month when, after years of construction delays over plans to build west of Palm Beach Gardens, county commissioners decided to consider new locations.
Three commissioners favored moving Scripps to Boca Raton and three supported building in Jupiter, leaving Greene as the deciding vote.
Greene made it clear before the vote that money for her proposed minority outreach program was her top priority and she said after the vote that she supported the Jupiter proposal because it offered the most.
Last week, de Guardiola said by the end of March he expected to get written commitments from about 13 people in the business community to provide a total of $1 million a year for five years for Greene's program. If he fails to get the commitments, de Guardiola said he would cover the costs himself.
My earlier post gives some perspective on the issues involved.
