IT IS THE HOW AND THE WHY PUBLIC OFFICIALS ACT (VOTE) AS THEY DO.

It is the how and the why officials decided to so act which interests the public, not merely the final decision. As the court recognized in Times Publishing Company v. Williams, 222 So. 2d 470, 473 (Fla. 2d DCA 1969), disapproved in part on other grounds, Neu v. Miami Herald Publishing Company, 462 So. 2d 821 (Fla. 1985):

Every thought, as well as every affirmative act, of a public official as it relates to and is within the scope of his official duties, is a matter of public concern; and it is the entire decision-making process that the legislature intended to affect by the enactment of the statute before us.

It is time to start asking Tonja and Spencer why they are going to vote the way they are on a particular issue. I’ll bet neither has a good reason to decide to vote against the majority. Perhaps tomorrow night.

AND IT IS TIME TO START ASKING SPENCER WHY HE VIOLATED THE SUNSHINE LAW IN THE PRIOR STORY. ARE HE AN TONJA THAT DUMB? I GUESS THEY ARE.
