Citizens for a Sound Economy Releases Taxpayer Alert on Cost of Palm Beach Recount

Citizens for a Sound Economy today issued a Taxpayer Alert to its more than 180,000 grassroots activists advising that the election vote recount is costing Palm Beach County taxpayers $25,000 a day. According to the Palm Beach County Commissioners' Office, taxpayers are paying the $25,000 tab to cover the vote counters' food and salary, additional security around the vote tallying area, and local cable access to broadcast the count as it happens. In the days since the Nov. 7 vote, Palm Beach County taxpayers have been assessed an estimated $250,000 for the ballot recounts. "The taxpayers of Palm Beach have been put through enough these past few weeks. To now learn the huge costs associated with these long, drawn out recounts make this whole experience that much tougher to deal with," said Florida CSE Director Slade O'Brien. "Americans deserve democracy, but an expensive, confusing battle will only result in a loss for hardworking taxpayers." Ballot recounts are being conducted in three Florida counties.

Letter to the Wall Street Journal

November 20, 2000 To the editor: The government-mandated cable modem “open access” argument relies on technical ignorance and vague notions of inequity. Both were on full display in “Cable Alliances Prompt Some Consumers to Pay Twice for Web Access” [November 20th Marketplace Section]. From the beginning, the story interprets the current marketplace for high-speed Internet access as irrational and dominated by conglomerates uninterested in consumer opinion.

In the Twilight of his Presidency, Clinton Launches Regulatory Charge

President Clinton recently declared that, far from being a lame duck, he still has “ten weeks left to quack.” With Americans distracted by vote counts and court battles, the administration has begun quacking, launching a three-pronged regulatory assault that could burden the country for years to come.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Monumental District Court Ruling in Florida

The nation’s eyes have turned to the Sunshine state. A ruling handed down Friday by a U.S. District Court in Florida will have long-term implications for the development of the new economy. However, this story has nothing to do with the contested presidential election. Instead, the court’s ruling overturned a Broward county ordinance that mandated “open access” to cable lines owned by AT&T. Mandated “open access,” or forced access as it can more accurately be called, would require owners of cable systems to provide equal and nondiscriminatory access to each and every Internet provider that wishes to serve the cable system’s customers.

School Board Victors, Losers Debate Why

BY Marion Callahan

Some incumbents ousted in last week's Lincoln County school board election blame a political coup, of sorts, for pitting voters against them. Others say people simply wanted a change. "There were political insiders working hard against the school board as a whole," said board Chairwoman Betty Lawing, who has held her seat for 20 years but lost it Tuesday to George Dellinger, a retired schoolteacher. "They touched a lot of people and said we hadn't spent money wisely and didn't buy text books. "

Saine Resigns After One Day

BY Chip Wilson and Marion Callahan

Citing a conflict with his job as a political activist, Jason Saine resigned from the Lincoln County school board Thursday - the day after his controversial appointment. Saine, 27, said he made his decision before discovering he couldn't have stayed on the board because he lives about 200 feet outside the Howard's Creek township - the district he was appointed to represent. His residency aside, Saine said he made his decision because of his job.
