We just had to share this with everyone and we sure hope the writer will NOT be upset with us, but when this was sent to us a little while ago, we thought, why not post this to let the citizens of Osceola County know just what is going on and how some other citizens feel and what they're doing about it! The writer did not send this to us but did send it to a good friend who suggested we share with you, so here it is! Our hope is this may actually move several of you to sit down and express your thoughts on anything with anyone.
Oh, and by the way, we do realize this became public information when it hit the county, but the writer is a former Marine and if we've learned anything it's NOT to tick off a Marine!
Okay folks, the trip is on and our bags are NOT packed because the county refuses to buy us, or anyone else a ticket to China! Mike Harford will definitely be going on this alleged economic trip. We say alleged because we ask you all look at his business record. UNsuccessful in business, Harford will attempt to represent Osceola County in convincing China's government, a big human rights fan, on how & why they should come to Osceola County. Quite frankly, after speaking with many, no one really wants China to step foot back into the county. Yes, back, as in the old and worn Splendid China, the park the Chinese Government lost their shirts in. More concerning is Harford's lack of business ability to know what would draw additional business development into Osceola County. Just what would Harford answer when/if asked about the only adult entertainment themed district in Osceola County? And what on Earth would he know about ranching in SW Osceola County, or the chicken ranch smack in the middle of cow country? We believe he'll know little to nothing. In fact, we believe the Chinese Government could probably teach Harford a bit about Osceola County !
A new and loud debate has begun whether current Commissioner Mike Harford should take a roundtrip to China with an alleged purpose of gaining new business and tourists coming from China, the country with so many human rights issues one could say they're right up there with countries like North Korea, Iran, and Iraq, to name just a few!
First, it's amazing the Vice Chairman would take the trip instead of having the Chairman go. It is well known the Chinese government considers it a slight if a true head of state, or in this case, county does not make the trip. Next, we're absolutely sure their government will check out Mr Harford and learn that he's a poor businessman, at best, and is currently unemployed.
We must all remember, and consider Mr. Harford's business experience along with his International diplomacy and promotion.(Remember his South American jaunt?) Plus, he's been in many top level meetings around the globe, having his keen ear to the most influential world class business leaders of our time! He has also watched several episodes of "Shark Tank" to sharpen his negotiating skills! <---donated comment, thanks gargoyle!
