I made a complaint to Ethics on Sylvester Lukis. Look at the subject of his lobbying. I haven't seen the word "general" so many times. I think the subjects have to be more descriptive. Lobbyist Vicky Garcia Toledo does an honest and fair description on her projects. All the rest of the lobbyists should do the same. We have a right to know.

Lobbyists NOT in Plain Sight. By Geniusofdespair
I wrote about the American (wet) Dream Mega Mall March 6th with the ski slope in it. The developer was Triple Five Worldwide. I looked at the lobbyist list for both names. Well, surprise, surprise. Here is their lobbyist list under International Atlantic. In the subject part do you see the word Mall? This is unacceptable. The land acquisition, in the multi millions, from the State is going before the County Commission next week, the day before it goes before the school board (they also want the property). There is other land as well involved in this project, the bulk of it belongs to 3 others including the Graham company. They, Triple Five Worldwide aka International Atlantic, have been lobbying since August under our noses because they tried to hide it. International Atlantic? Google it, nothing comes up. It is a corporation registered in Delaware. The company should not be able to just choose another one of its companies to lobby under, that is so unfair to the public and frankly the County Commission that knew nothing about this project until the day before it hit the news last week. And now they are voting on it? They should cry foul.
