The Gabber Newspaper‘s July 13 letters to the editor.
Kudos to Pat Buza for her comments Re: Mr. Carr of WinWay homes. His remarks tell us his only passion is money. Not everyone wants or needs a 2,000-square-foot plus home nor are they appropriate in a small, quaint, “old Florida” community. —Tina Risley, Gulfport
St. Pete Beach Scandal
We truly appreciate your coverage of the scandal with the city manager of St. Pete Beach. It filled the void that “Scandoval” left. —Lacey Glass, St. Pete Beach
Gulfport on the Edge
On Tuesday, June 20, members of the Gulfport on the Edge production team made a presentation to the Gulfport City Council. It was well received by both the Council and the audience. During the Public Comment section, a number of people referenced the events, their formats, and the outcomes as productive and meaningful for civic engagement.
You can see the entire meeting here.
The presentation starts about 10 minutes in. Stay for the public comment and you’ll get to hear the “Gulfport Song” by Berkeley Grimball. The audience joined in on the chorus! It was a unique and enlivening meeting.
Watch the five-minute photo slideshow here.
Additional information was sent to the city council members and community groups to reference for their planning, deliberations and decisions impacting Gulfport citizens.
