TO THE COUNCILORS WHO FEEL THEY ARE JUST LEARNING;
Although you were not elected by the electors but were appointed, you took an oath of office.
Now we have asked for copies of your signed oaths, which our Town Clerk will not provide, nor the Town Manager.
We also realize when you all took the oath verbally and had your Black Photo Op with Charlie, no paper oaths were signed as required by the State of Florida.
Nevertheless, after Joe Griffin pointed out the law, the oaths were signed after the June meeting, whether backdated to April, we do not know.
Initially the Manager and Town Clerk lied and said they had all the oaths. This is what we go through continually with the corrupt staff.
The Statute CHAPTER 99 provides for an oath, which ours must be similar:
State of Florida
Before me, an officer authorized to administer oaths, personally appeared (please print name as you wish it to appear on the ballot) , to me well known, who, being sworn, says that he or she is a candidate for the office of ; that he or she is qualified under the Constitution and laws of the United States to hold the office to which he or she desires to be nominated or elected; that he or she has qualified for no other public office in the state, the term of which office or any part thereof runs concurrent with that of the office he or she seeks; and that he or she will support the Constitution of the United States.
Every Oath of Office for the state of Florida states “that she or he is qualified” so this means, by signing the oath, you technically and in writing are stating that YOU ARE QUALIFIED AND NOT JUST LEARNING
