I'm travelling abroad, but read in an article a few minutes ago that Mayor, Bob McMahon still feels that entering into an agreement with "Today in America" is sound judgement and that the due diligence was appropriate. Let's forget for a moment that $19,800 for 5 minutes of video is a rip-off and extremely unpopular with Media Taxpayers.
What I'd like to know is why does the Mayor and Media borough council feel we need this service so soon and with a shady corporation? Especially with a business that is currently being investigated by Florida Attorney General. This isn't a show as people are led to believe it is, it's a paid for infomercial at best. That being that the case, why wouldn't this go out to bid for someone local to shoot 5 minutes of video? Did borough council and the mayor discuss with this company that they are being investigated? What was there response? Do you think anyone on borough council would allow for someone to work on their home, business, etc. if the knowingly knew the entity they were working with was being investigated by state authorities? I think the answer is no, so why is Media borough proceeding in this manner?
What happened to honest, integrity and business conduct when dealing with borough interest? It's too bad the mayor thinks that glitz and glamour is more important that sound, ethical business practice.
