The Latest TAMPOA Attorney's Bill

Readers from Truman Annex might be interested in knowing the latest bill TAMPOA got from Attorney Bill Andersen. The bill is for November and is $79,000.00 and change. This makes the balance now owed to Andersen $125,000.00 that TAMPOA cannot pay due to insufficient funds. Of course, there will be more charges for December. Then when depositions begin in January, there will be still more charges. And more in February. And more in March. And more and more.

And, we predict, the TAMPOA Board will try to levy another assessment in May 2007 to keep paying Andersen.

Sadly, there is no end in sight to this madness. Even if TAMPOA wins in court, we all lose. Lest we forget, the City commissioners are fighting TAMPOA with our tax dollars, not their own personal dollars. Moreover, there is no guarantee that the City will obey a court judgment any more than it has honored a contract with TAMPOA. Of course, just as with the Duck Tours case, the City will appeal, meaning more attorneys fees. And we can never recoup the money we are spending. Is it worth it? Is this Tukey's and TAMPOA's Iraq?

i guess your position is just capitulation. let the city take our property and just hope that they are satisfied. since you brought up war analogies, your option smacks of chamberlain's giving czechoslovakia to the germans and hoping that that would be enough. it wasn't. maybe you would like to have parking meters along the streets of truman annex? i know that i wouldn't.
what happened to the rule of law?

if i misspoke your position why don't you tell us all what you would do in detail?
