Mark McCarty has yet to meet with city officials to determine what, if any, action needs to be taken after the District 1 Sanford City Commissioner spent $1,500 on a questionable mailing.
Two weeks ago Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett asked City Manager Norton Bonaparte and City Attorney William Colbert to meet with McCarty after discovering McCarty used taxpayer money to mail about 4,000 post cards to newly registered voters in District 1. Triplett also asked McCarty to repay the $1,500 in postage because the expense was not budgeted (“McCarty asked to repay city funds”).

Paulii Buster has invested tens of thousands of dollars to turn a vacate space on Sanford Avenue into a sleek, modern Belgium beer pub that regularly draws customers from outside of Sanford — including players from the Orlando City Soccer Club.
When the city of Sanford’s Downtown Waterfront Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) announced it would spend $2.5 million to reconstruct Sanford Avenue to upgrade utilities, widen sidewalks, and enhance lighting and landscaping, Buster knew his business, Buster’s Bistro, would suffer and he made plans to mitigate the construction.
He never thought the work would virtually shut off access to his pub.
