Collier says Studer didn’t appoint him to CMPA

March 16, 2009

In a phone interview with Judge Lacey Collier, chairman of the Community Maritime Park Board of Trustees, the judge said that he was appointed to fill the seat of Vince Whibbs, Sr. on the CMPA board by the maritime museum board.

Originally, the CMPA board had three members – one appointed by each of the major proponents – Studer, UWF and the Maritime Museum.

Judge Collier said that the first time that he sat with Quint Studer was after he had been asked to be on the CMPA board.

“I wanted to understand what his hopes and dreams for the park were before I agreed to join the board,” Collier says.

    Yeah, that will be the day! Quint Studer owes the citizens of Pensacola an apology!

    I stand by my staement. The contract is there in black and white. Once that $40 million hits the streets, it is going to vaporize like a drop of water on a hot skillet!

      So you admit that you have no facts to back up your accusation. The contract doesn’t back up your allegations by any stretch of the imagination. The contract says CMPA may be reimbursed. CMPA paid no bills while Quint Studer was a board member. Studer paid for the consultants, etc. Studer will not and has not asked to be reimbursed by the City of Pensacola. You have not proved otherwise.

      So you standing by your statement is an admission that your allegations are a fantasy created by you to defame Quint Studer.
