Susan Haynie was scheduled to join the rest of Boca Raton’s City Council Members in tonight’s Council Meeting at City Hall. Instead she told members she was sick. The meeting adhered to the agenda with only Deputy Mayor Scott Singer, Council Member O’ Rourke and Council Member Mayotte as the attending elected officials. During the meeting Mr. Singer broke from the agenda to address Mayor Haynie’s absence.
The Palm Beach Post reported a story explaining the actual reason for Mayor Haynie’s absence: she was being booked with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, charged with four felonies and three misdemeanors. See the booking details in the image at the bottom of this article.
During the meeting Frank Chapman brought up how the City Attorney had been complicit. Now that it’s gone from allegations to actual charges, he asked if it was appropriate if the Council continues without 3rd party legal review of the City Attorney, Diana Grub Freiser. Chapman alluded to her accepting some culpability for the felony charges Haynie is facing.
Mrs Haynie has no one to blame but herself. She no longer has any real credibility, and now only contributes to further “Errosion of Public Trust.”
She has put herself in the position where she must resign. Furthermore, she has put the City Council in the position to vote on her continuation as Mayor. The Council has a dark cloud hanging over them due to this sad and unnecessary situation. It no longer appears to be Mrs. Haynie’s choice – it has become responsibility of the Council.
My heart goes out to those ‘new’ on the Council who are undoubtedly stressed by this mess.
NO ONE IS PERFECT………….
IF ALL OF THE COUNCIL MEMBERS AND COUNTY COMM. HAD BEEN SUBJECTED TO TO INVASION OF THIER PRIVACY………..PRIVATE BANK ACCOUNTS, LETTERS ,COMMENTS ETC. RELATIONSHIP WITH DEVELOPERS
WOULD BE INTERESTING !!!!!!!
IT IS NORMAL FOR ALL OF THE ABOVE TO WORK WITH ON A DAILY BASIS DEVELOPERS AND YOU CAN BUILD A RELATIONSHIP OF WORKING TOGETHER , THAT IS THE WAY YOU GET THINGS DONE
SUSAN HAYNIE IS A GOOD AND HONEST PERSON AND HAS DONE A LOT FOR THE CITY OF BOCA RATON OVER THE YEARS.WE ALL MAKE DECISIONS IN OUR LIFE THAT MAYBE WERE NOT THE BEST AND WISH WE COULD CHANGE……………………
SO ALL YOU PERFECT PEOPLE AND NEWSPAPER WRITERS STAND UP AND HOLLER!!!!!!!!!
