County Commissioner Candidate Billy Vale: Susan Haynie’s Arrest for Corrupt Misuse of Public Office Is No Surprise in Developer-Dominated Palm Beach County
BOCA RATON, FL — William “Billy” Vale, Republican primary candidate for Palm Beach County Commissioner for District 4, said it is no surprise that his former opponent Susan Haynie was arrested on charges that she lied about money she took from developers and hid more than $335,000 in income.
“For years, too many public officials have consistently sided with developers’ interests over residents’ demands to protect their property values and quality of life. The power imbalance has resulted in waivers and rezoning for one massive development after another, but taxpayers are left to pay the bill for overcrowded schools, roads, loss of green space and more,” he said.
“I applaud the grassroots efforts that initiated the investigation into these ethics violations. We must stop the corruption,” said Vale.
