    As I commented abouty this elsewhere online: This is great, it will be amazing if he gets in. I hope he has a comprehensive platform for the city, not just with regards to scientology.

    Also: Someone inside is at this very time being given command of a team that is task with preventing this from happening. Expect the Co$ to hire local lobbyists.

    What Scientology doesn't seem to understand is that attempting to suppress the freedom of speech of certain people not only will fail to work, but it will produce the exact opposite result they're wanting to create.

    There's many examples of this, Paulette Cooper being one of the more well known ones. The Guardian's Office and OSA used terrorist tactics to fair game her as documented in Tony Ortega's book:

    The Unbreakable Miss Lovely: How the Church of Scientology tried to destroy Paulette Cooper

    Not only did they fail to break her but after everything they put her through she authored another book last year! :yes:

    Mark Bunker for Clearwater City Council

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *


    The Clearwater City Council campaign season officially starts on September 19th! In advance of the 19th, there are two things we’d like some help with.
    We are still looking to nail down someone to be the CAMPAIGN MANAGER who has previous experience running a campaign. This is a PAID POSITION.
    The challenge has been finding someone with prior experience who is ALSO willing to put themselves in the cross-hairs of the Church of Scientology.
    We don’t have to have a “proper” campaign manager in order to move forward and we certainly will move forward regardless, but it sure would make life easier.
    The only position a campaign must have filled is Treasurer and we already have that taken care of.
    Lastly, we need help getting an appropriate campaign website set up that can accept donations in accordance with local campaign finance rules. Any offers of help to get this done would be greatly appreciated.
    For offers of help I can be reached through Facebook and also at [email protected]

    Cross-posted from Aaron Smith-Levin (on Facebook):

    Mark Bunker directly addressing Scientologists yesterday at the meeting of the Downtown Development Board.

    ‪At the 3:05-mark hear Paris Morfopoulis (Scientologist and President of Clearwater’s Downtown Development Board) asking Mark if he likes to have sex with children and small animals. ‬

    At 6:25 hear Scientologist Ray Cassano say he is also a Christian and “MOST SCIENTOLOGISTS ARE CHRISTIANS”.

    Here are some comments from Mark, posted under the video on YouTube:

    I attended the Downtown Development Board to discuss Scientology's impact on downtown. A problem I see is that most of the board are Scientologists. Of the new slate of candidates to join the board, three of the five are also Scientologists so they may have an even greater sway that they did in 2017 when the Tampa Bay Times wrote this article:

    Downtown Clearwater board election could bring majority Scientology representation

    Interesting Video ^^^^

    Yea, very weird that guy saying "most Scientologists are Christians...." Very strange...and of course a complete lie. Sad to think that statement is going on the record of that meeting....UN-challenged.

    Had no idea that Scientology was packing a government body with Clearwater.

    Interesting that the first name on the Candidate List....stated at the beginning of the video was Shihab Emrani.

    He was an OT8 business guy in Glendale....(LA) way back in late 1990s.....

    He was my FSM for awhile....

    Now I hear that he is buying up properties in Clearwater.....

    So is this a trend of Scientologists moving to Clearwater....and putting roots down?

    I have personally heard of Scientologists migrating to Clearwater and putting roots down there. If I recall correctly, Tony Ortega has also noted the phenomena and written about it.
