Tampa Bay Times: Scientology's leader reaches out to mend fences with Clearwater
CLEARWATER — After months of discord between his church and the city, Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige reached out this week to Clearwater leaders, arranging a sit-down in the church's Fort Harrison Hotel to iron out their differences.
The hour-long meeting between City Manager Bill Horne and Miscavige on Thursday included discussion of long-simmering issues between Clearwater and the church, which makes its spiritual home in Tampa Bay's third-largest city.
On the table: tension in the months leading up to the opening of the church's massive Flag Building downtown last fall, and raw feelings over possible locations for a downtown parking garage.
