While the entire U.S. awaits the results of an official recount of votes cast in Florida’s Senate race and Governor’s contest, in South Florida, Keith James’ financial history was exposed and his run for Mayor of West Palm Beach has started to sizzle.
In a scathing report published by WPB Gov Watch and authored by Sandy on November 15, the question was posed: Should West Palm Beach residents trust Keith James with hundreds of millions of tax-payer dollars?
The content released within the report is key to this highly sought-after race for Mayor of West Palm Beach. Keith James’ financial woes have been uncovered and laid out rather unapologetically.
The article presents official data from 1997 to October 17, 2018. It unfolds to include judgments and liens totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars.
James, WPB City Commissioner Dist. 4 who claims to be running for Mayor on a platform of ethical leadership, has had his City of West Palm Beach wages garnished by the IRS and other creditors.
“Apparently, Commissioner James has not been paying his bills, according to a Final Judgment issued by the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit here in Palm Beach County against Mr. Keith A. James, which grants the Midland Funding LLC, the garnishment of Commissioner James’ wages he receives from the City of West Palm Beach for being a Commissioner. If that isn’t a new way of tax dollars being used, I don’t know what is!”
At the expense of the report’s author, Sandy, the Palm Beach County Clerk, and Comptroller’s office furnished official copies of the document showing James’ garnished wages. The writer was generous enough to make this document public. You can view or download it here: http://wpbwatch.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/kjamesGarnished-Wages.pdf
