Posting under the name “VideoM,” someone recently created a YouTube video raising questions about why City Council members Laura Moss, Lange Sykes and Harry Howle so fervently support the sale of Vero Electric Indian River Shores customers to Florida Power and Light. The video mentions $50,000 in campaign contributions FPL made to a political action committee supporting Moss and Sykes.
The video also questions campaign promises made by Moss and Sykes about how proceeds from the sale could directly benefit the City and its residents.
Unaddressed, however, is the direct campaign support Moss, Sykes and Howle received from Shores residents. In the November elections, for example, Sykes took in 90% of his campaign funds from Shores contributors. Fully 70% of Moss’ campaign expenses were paid for with Shores money.
