I have written to ask her if the information is accurate. How do you know she refuses to comment? Did she respond to this effect?

I did too; just now. Figure it's worth a try.

Default Follow-up Question for the Moffitt Center

This is not good PR for the Morses, The Villages or the Moffit Center. I also wrote to the Moffit Center alerting them how their name was being dragged down and through the mud over this recent incident. Suggest you all do the same!!
If you ever get a reply, a good follow-up question would be: Would you please disclose the details of all contracts, arrangements, or other understandings between Moffitt and any member of the Morse family, or any corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or other entity controlled by the Morse family or any member thereof? Please specifically include any contract, arrangement, or other understanding that could financially benefit any of the foregoing because of fund-raising efforts on behalf of Moffitt.

One has to be, or should be, a little cynical about what appears to have gone on, and appears to continue to go on, with respect to the fund-raising drive.

I'd done some research about Morse holdings, but this gives some I hadn't even thought to consider such as the LLCs for the water and power. I truly don't mind that they have their fingers in so many pies -- they run most of them quite well. I do dislike the greed in the running some of their businesses.

Thanks for the information. That chart is really interesting. Do you know who prepared it, when, and why? Is it is accurate, complete, and up-to-date?

I noted that one post made reference to the real story to soon be found in the Daily Sun around page 25. Perhaps such reaction is good to remind us all not to jump to conclusions and pre-judge. On the other hand, I do not know of another venue in or around The Villages, other than the Orlando Sentinel/Lauren Ritchie, including the VHA or the POA that has the courage to honestly detail many of the busines dealings taking place in TV.

The problem as I see it is that some people here simply refuse to be faced with news that might affect their view of TV. I refer to this as disney dust clouding their vision. TV is no different than any other place and politics will always play a part in our lives. We can either embrace the truth and have it worked for us or ignore it and have it work against us. Thankfully that choice is still ours . I made mine long ago when I first moved here and Lauren Ritchie speaks the truth. I hold no credence in any media venue or Homeowner Association in TV and little based on past dealings with TV government.

I don't think ever again will this happen, a single builder building a town of this size and doing it so well.

Does anyone remember Levittown? My sister in law lived there for a time, but I don't know much about it. I know it was the source of the song about "Houses made out of Ticky Tacky", or at least I THINK it was.
Levittown?

I have emailed Michelle Foley 4 times about the fund raising here. I received two reply's the first said my questions would be referred to someone in TV who could answer them. I never received any answers from anyone connected with the fundraiser. The second was the press release everyone received who emailed Foley.
In other words she has not answered any questions I have asked.
