What are we doing here? The delegate assembly has already defeated the money for wifi and the budget which contained provision for wifi. More committees have said no to wifi than have said yes. The prevailing sentiment in the Village is anti wifi now. Later, perhaps, but not now. Then, as the cherry on top, our own paid expert, prepared with handouts and presentation and a confidence in his ability to deal with audience issues, put the kibosh on our wifi project for now, at least as is visualized right now. Our esteemed UCO president went ballistic and had to be told to keep quiet. Wonder how he felt to be on the receiving end this time, rather than on the dealing it out side, as he frequently is. Although this was much more polite.
Remember all the questions I have been asking and Eduardo has been asking about the wifi system? What are its ramifications as far as building infrastructure? Where would it go? What would it need? Are there permits necessary from County? State? Anyone else? Oh yes, now we would need from PBI!!!! Fat chance of that since it would be in their flight path and this airport has enough troubles already. And for the piece de resistance ---the installation and cost? So what do we find out? A 65 foot tower with room for it to fall down - lovely thought, that- possible trenching for wire and WE would have to pay for that, the two companies we had been talking to are TOO SMALL for this undertaking - another lovely thought - and on and on.
So now we are approaching stratospheric costs and the one million dollar post has long been passed by. Attention passengers - two million dollar post coming up quickly. And what does our esteemed leader say. Oh, the report was wonderful. We need to go fast forward on the wifi project NOW. Cost be damned and full speed ahead. Second financial fiasco straight ahead! Not to worry, we will just raid any more reserves we have accumulated since we last misappropriated them.
Delegates, please, for the sake of our residents, please help us off this spaceship to Mars and let us return to reality as it is here on Earth in Century Village. Yes, wifi, but later, when all is right, financially feasible, physically feasible, the right company is found, and the money there. Vote no on any wifi funding. And think about all this dangerous nonsense when elections roll around. I promise you that this is not the way the administration under my leadership would function
