Why did the Hayward Administration not want to hear from west Pensacola

January 6, 2017

Pensacola’s west side has a very different view of city services and the direction of the city government than city residents who live in the wealthier and predominantly white neighborhoods on the city’s east side.

Why didn’t Mayor Ashton Hayward insist that the Haas survey represent all districts fairly?

    Actually George,
    many of us that have never fallen prey to Waywards propaganda have no power to do anything to prevent it’s effects. Until the Studers, Merrills, Levins, Reeves, Spencers, etc. of the city speak up you can count on nothing happening. It takes the Rat Packing McGuires Irish Political Club types to get involved before anything in this city gets approval. The rest of us peons only recourse is to sit idly and watch in disbelief with no say in community affairs.

      You know, you have a very valid point. However, I don’t know if that will ever occur especially given the fact that the Mayor’s incompetence has been “profitable for them” by winning lawsuits against the Mayor and “sweetheart deals” made available because of the Mayor’s “inexperience and incompetence.”

    Because the survey wasn’t trying to reveal the TRUTH, but, only done to provide the Mayor some “propaganda” to spread to the citizens of Pensacola that are not paying attention; Let’s not forget what prompted the “survey” was the “Quality of Life” survey that showed the Mayor was losing support and the confidence of the citizens. Ashton is all about “Optics, appearances and subterfuge” and He doesn’t want to hear the Truth about his incompetent administration of the City. He thinks that the citizens don’t pay attention to facts and are easily swayed by his propaganda. So far – He has been absolutely CORRECT about the citizens.
