While a clever writer who is loose with facts, Mr. Jeanes, a very successful and wealthy businessman, surely knows that non-disclosure agreements between developers and clients are the normal course of business. Confidentiality agreements between business and government to not disclose discussions until an offer is made is common practice, i.e. Nissan, as Mr. Jeanes surely knows.
Playing the rube does not serve Mr. Jeanes, nor the public, well. Misrepresenting facts does not serve anyone well. If Mr. Jeanes truly believes men of integrity suddenly became the conniving liars that Mr. Jeanes reports them to be, why has he not met with Mayor McGee to delve the depths of this diabolical plot? At what point does he believe the mayor abandoned his lifelong record of integrity, honesty and unwavering Christianity? All for a Costco card? Oh, Mr. Jeanes, you do have a way with words, but you can't have your way with the truth.
