A Satirical Look at Commissioner Fred Coyle’s last few days in office

Something had to be done…


Recent events involving the Jackson Lab fiasco  appear to have left a certain Collier County commissioner a bit discomposed.  A common occurrence in Florida politics. 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:  The Jackson Lab is a genetics lab based in Maine, which is also involved in the world of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research (HESC).  Thomas S. Monaghan, Founder and Chancellor of Ave Maria University has given the “go ahead” for the land to be allocated  for this lab in Ave Maria, Florida– the town he promoted as a “Catholic hub”.  Really, folks.

Three Collier County commissioners were big fans of this project:  Donna Fiala, Chairman Fred Coyle and Jim Coletta.

So, back to Florida politics.  As a result of the Jackson Lab scandal, a  new citizen group has emerged, rightly named the Disciplinary Inspection Commission (DIC).   
DIC plans to inspect, in the strictest sense of the word, the activities and behavior of Collier County commissioners who fail to enforce transparency in economic development– and who do not treat their constituency with kindness and respect.
DIC launched its operation by conducting a public poll, as Phase I of an inspection report on Collier County Commissioner, Fred Coyle.  Mr. Coyle was brought to DIC’s attention after he recently wrote a  Letter to the Editor of a local newspaper, specifically addressing a senior member of our community, including her political party affiliation– for merely exercising her First Amendment rights.  This has caused tremendous consternation and indignation among many citizens, who do not like seeing one of their finest be bullied by Chairman Coyle. 
While some may see DIC’s initial disciplinary inspection as too severe– it is actually quite reasonable, compared to a more formal disciplinary inspection that DIC could launch, if Chairman Coyle does not heed the results of the following public poll:
