Labor Day Briefing: Drug Court Steering Committee, OD Awareness Day, FPC v. New Smyrna, Gentile-Youd Loves McLaughlin

| August 31, 2018

jane gentile-youd nate mclaughlin

Get a room: Jane Gentile-Young, as a County Commission critic then as a county commission candidate, has devoted the better past of the past year to vilifying Commissioner Nate McLaughlin. On Thursday, it was all hugs, kisses and moist eyes, now that McLaughlin was defeated in the Republican primary. Had he won, Gentile-Youd would have faced him, as an independent, in the general election. Instead, she’ll have to face Joe Mullins. Mullins was in the same room (the picture was taken at the end of a county commission workshop Thursday), but he steered clear of Gentile-Youd, and she of him. (© FlaglerLive)

“I put down the cover and went to the window. What was it that Rilke wrote? That music raised him out of himself, and never returned him where it had found him, but to a deeper place, somewhere in the unfinished. It was unlikely he had been thinking about country and western music…”

–Karl Ove Knausgaard, from “My Struggle, Book 2” (2014).

    4 Responses for “Labor Day Briefing: Drug Court Steering Committee, OD Awareness Day, FPC v. New Smyrna, Gentile-Youd Loves McLaughlin”

    1. Jane Gentile-Youd says:

      Yes, I like Nate as a person – I told him so many times and we used to joke how we loved each other but but I also told him many many times during the past 8 years how and what was needed from him as our area commissioner. He never listened and never once held a town hall meeting in our area – he never supported any of our communities needs even though I pleaded with him and he was well aware that if he didn’t ‘shape up’ I was going to run to replace him. Being a nice guy is not enough to be a good commissioner. Nate is a hell of a nice guy but he was a lousy commissioner in my well known opinion. He was asked for help many many times but never listened. Now he is paying the price but heaven forbid Joe Mullins who has never done a damn thing other than campaign for a job which pays less than what he has already spent replaces him. I’ve seen him a 2 meetings in 16 years – he hadn’t even run for Georgia state house in 2015 – and in less than 3 years he wants to tell me what to do? No way Jose…
      Not if I can help it….. Sorry Nate – had you done a good job, had you been a better listener, had you not voted to buy the ‘infested dump’ and even promote a 24 hour all cash – 24 hour lit pot shop just 50 feet from my neighbors you would still be our commissioner. Yes Nate, my heart is with you but my conscience is clear – I gave you over 6 years of support until I simply gave up … God speed – you paid the price but OMG at what possible cost to the rest of us… time will tell

    2. Facts says:

      Jane debate Mullins. He stated that he supports Home Rule. But the bottom line is he will not protect our single family communities from transient public lodging establishment businesses, AKA vacation rentals. This guy is aligning himself with Travis Hutson. Hutson proved this past legislation session that he is in favor of State takeover home rule authority as it relates to vacation rentals. The state already caused damage to our communities in 2011 when they passed Senate bill 883 by removing our local property zoning preventing our local governments from prohibiting these businesses from operating next door to your homes. This use is incompatible and should have only been permitted in areas zoned for public lodging.

    3. Jane Gentile-Youd says:

      Dear Fact:
      You bet vacation rentals are totally incompatible with ‘single family’ . ‘Vacation rental’ and SINGLE family are 100% incompatible in my opinion as a real estate broker and as a ‘single’ family homeowner who relishes my legal right to ‘quiet peace and enjoyment’ of my primary full time residence. To the bone heads in Tallahassee ( my opinion) who support legalizing invasions of our peaceful neighborhoods are not only irresponsible in attempting to force commercial use of our homes upon us they obviously are well aware that their greed for tax free income ( you bet that’s what it is all about) will force many hotels to go out of business .

      My ongoing opposition will be even more vocal if I am able to address those bone heads in Tallahassee as a Commissioner next time ( which for sure there is) they try to shove it down our throats again. Thanks once again to Al Hadeed , the most active county attorney in the state of Florida for his ongoing unstoppable efforts to put an end to this shark infested gang’s shenanigans ( my opinion)

    4. Anonymous says:

      Hutson and Mullen’s deserve each other. Maybe Mullen’s will eventually replace Hutson and Hutson can go find a job away from his dads wallet. Pathetic representation.
