Those Who Lose Do Not Get to Choose - Winning Side Gets to Decide The Refund Process
On Tampa Bay

Commissioner Stacy White, who championed the legal challenge that got AFT overturned by the Florida Supreme Court, joined FORF to also comment on the issue. White clearly stated the unlawful AFT tax monies are not the County's money and must be returned to the people. White stated the court filing made by outside hired lawyers that forces people to submit receipts for over 2 years to a 3 judge panel is "funny business" to enable the County to keep as much of the unlawful tax dollars as possible. White also emphasized we "cannot reward bad behavior".
Commissioner Kimberly Overman, a transit activist and Tampa centric commissioner who supported the unlawful AFT transit tax, was sought out by media after the press conference. Overman, a member of the AFT cabal, was caught lying to media in 2018 which she stated AFT had been "closely vetted" but could provide no evidence to back up her claim.
Overman had no answer.
