From Scott Mayo, Escambia District 2 resident

Mr. (Scott) Trotter,
I am a native of Mobile, Alabama, who has resided in Escambia District 2, since 1998.
Mr. Trotter, the only local issue I care about at all, at this time, is the ongoing censorship of our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays.
I am a registered independent voter—and I frankly despise both major political parties in this country.
That said, I see that you are the only candidate running against Doug Underhill—and I despise Doug Underhill even more than the political party he represents.
Mr. Trotter, I reside very close to the Five Flags display in front of the Osceola Municipal Golf Course on Tonawanda Drive—so I cannot avoid witnessing everything that is done to our Five Flags Displays.
Mr. Trotter, in 2000, the local politicians here replaced the Confederate Battle Flag, in our Five Flags Displays, with the First Confederate Flag (a.k.a. the Stars and Bars)—and no one had a problem with the First Confederate Flag.
But on June 24, 2015, Republican Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays—replacing it with the State Flag of Florida—without the consent of his constituents.
And on June 25, 2015, Republican Doug Underhill, Republican Steven Barry, Republican Wilson Robertson (whose seat is now occupied by Republican Jeff Bergosh), Republican Grover C. Robinson IV, and Democrat Lumon May voted to keep our First Confederate Flag censored from our Five Flags Displays—without the consent of their constituents, including me.
Mr. Trotter, our First Confederate Flag remains censored from our Five Flags Displays—without our consent.
Mr. Trotter, if you are elected County Commissioner for Escambia District 2, will you see to it that our First Confederate Flag is returned to its rightful place in our Five Flags Displays?
Of the crooked politicians who have censored our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays, Doug Underhill is the only one I’ve ever had the displeasure of meeting.
As you probably know, however, Doug Underhill is not only a crook but a criminal—a criminal who has swindled his fellow Maryland citizens out of potentially millions of dollars, through crooked business deals.
I think it’s safe to assume that you are not a crook, and certainly not a criminal (though I do wish you were running for office as an independent, rather than a Democrat).
I think it’s safe to assume that you would be a far better county commissioner for Escambia District 2 than Doug Underhill—and I am certainly considering voting for you, later today.
That said, I understand that today’s Democratic Party is even more hostile toward any historical Confederate flag or monument than today’s Republican Party is.
And I would like to know if you would vote independently of your party, in regards to our First Confederate Flag.
Mr. Trotter, I cannot emphasize enough that no one ever had a problem with the First Confederate Flag in our Five Flags Displays—that any controversy over historical Confederate flags should have been resolved, for all time, when the local politicians here replaced the Confederate Battle Flag, in our Five Flags Displays, with the First Confederate Flag.
Mr. Trotter, I have been researching and reporting on this censorship of our First Confederate Flag, from our Five Flags Displays, since it was begun—on my blog, Solosocial.  The website of my blog is solosocial.wordpress.com, and I invite you to visit my blog, and consider what I’ve reported.
Yet for my voting consideration later today, I ask again:
Mr. Trotter, if you are elected County Commissioner for Escambia District 2, will you see to it that our First Confederate Flag is returned to its rightful place in our Five Flags Displays?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Scott W. Mayo
