Who is Take Back Our Government?
An organization formed by one person funded by one entity to mislead and lie about Joe McClash’s record. The only commissioner that has continuously put the people first over a few developers! Don't let them buy a seat on the County Commission.
The money that has totally funded Take Back Our Government comes from one source FLORIDA WEST COAST HOLDINGS(PDF file 203KB), with an address of 2212 58TH AVE E BRADENTON, FL 34203. The negative attacks are an attempt for a developer to gain control of votes on our County Commission. The attack pieces are not accurate and you can expect at least 5 of these mailers. It is the dirty politics that corrupts our government. One person can use their money, and hide behind a made up organization, created just to attack an elected official just so they can make money at the expense of the community. Greed and corruption go hand in hand and now we have these nasty campaigns at our local level.

Florida law allows for this ECO to be created and is stated below:
(19) “Electioneering communications organization” means any group, other than a political party, affiliated party committee, political committee, or committee of continuous existence, whose election-related activities are limited to making expenditures for electioneering communications or accepting contributions for the purpose of making electioneering communications and whose activities would not otherwise require the group to register as a political party, political committee, or committee of continuous existence under this chapter.
(18)(a) “Electioneering communication” means any communication that is publicly distributed by a television station, radio station, cable television system, satellite system, newspaper, magazine, direct mail, or telephone and that:
1. Refers to or depicts a clearly identified candidate for office without expressly advocating the election or defeat of a candidate but that is susceptible of no reasonable interpretation other than an appeal to vote for or against a specific candidate;
These are the postcards being mailed.Get ready for 5 nasty mailers. All contain misrepresentations and are a form of political bullying used today to sway a voter. Remember this is one person that wants to profit from a vote on the commission. For example The Bradenton Times was started by Joe as a concern in our community that the printed news would disappear. A real issue that should concern all of us. He hired people in the worst recession that helped our economy and is developing a new model for supplying local news. Joe is no liberal and is devout Catholic and pro life. His record as a commissioner confirms this and no where in the articles would you find him endorsing liberal agendas. In fact his news site has been a watchdog for our citizens. Saving tax dollars and providing a valuable public service.
Joe's record is conservative and pro life. He has never supported obama care, and is the only commissioner questioning mandates like the abortion pill that could be mandated as a form of birth control. One developer distorting his record!
Taxes collected have been reduced by over $80million in the past 4 years. The state sets the pay of a County Commissioner and Joe has never lived off his Commission pay.The increase fees for garbage are part of the contract as fuel prices go up the fees are adjusted. The fact is our water sewer and garbage fees are some of the lowest in the state.
This is just like the attack above. False message by one developer. Dog parks having fees. Just not true. The County has a County Administrator that recommends fees and Joe has even requested lower fees than those recommended. The facts are taxes have been going down and the County reduced employees. This year taxes collected will be reduced another $4 million.
The fact is Joe was able to convince FDOT to provide a grant of over $4 million. The building was built in about a year. The work was bidded out and followed state law. His leadership should be rewarded not attacked!
This is how the political consultants like to end the attack with a summary piece of the false facts.Why should anyone believe such a negative attack based on a single developer without contacting Joe first. After all we know we can trust him to tell the truth. He has been honest his whole time serving the County.
