Larry Metz Needs to Represent Lake County

Larry Metz Needs to Represent Lake County

Metz Continues to Make One Bad Decision after Another

When Representative Larry Metz was on the Lake County School Board, he joined Jimmy Conner and other big spending School Board Members to crush the Lake County School District with over $600 million in debt.  Most of the district’s money woes of today and the consternation created by that board still permeates.  Metz was a disaster as a School Board Member.

While in the Florida House, his primary focus was on national and state issues to get attention and when he focused on local issues his decisions were costly.  He led the opposition to the North Lake County Hospital District property tax based on a small group of naysayers and his efforts were soundly defeated in last November’s election.  Yet, he continues to meddle in a matter that the people have spoken on.

Now, he is pushing an effort to undo economic development funding in Florida and defund the state’s tourism department.  His little band in the House calls it corporate welfare despite voting to fund these agencies in the past.

Someone please tell Representative Metz that tourism and economic development is a big deal in the state of Florida and a lot of jobs depend on tourism.  In fact, Lake County’s burgeoning tourism industry is finally seeing some real growth and Metz’s efforts will sledgehammer funding from the state.

You know, it is about time Larry Metz represents the people of Lake County instead of his handful of special interests.
