Questions about Marc Forlenza | Letter

February 7, 2013 · Updated 4:07 PM

Are you, like me, still wondering who we elected? The voter pamphlet said Marc Forlenza was the owner of the Tech Center Building. I was impressed. However, his F1 filing showed his ownership as 8.3 percent. Not so impressive. He now says part owner. Integrity?

During one forum he claimed to be a part owner of Village At The Harbor. That wasn’t on his F1. He isn’t claiming that anymore. Honesty?

On his website he sums up his career history: “1983-2003: Real Estate Investor and Restaurant Owner. 1975-1982: International Negotiation and Marketing Executive.” Ten words for 28 years! Is that all we need to know? This is on his own website where he can blow his horn. Can we see your resume please? Are you hiding something?

He claims a background in conflict resolution. Are there credentials? Training? According to incidents documented by Allison Lance and others, he wasn’t very good using these conflict resolution skills in his own business.

So he says he’s a real estate investor. Is that who we want in charge of our fragile islands?
