Mr. Gregory said, “If I had been appraiser when Les Cook wanted to go to Tyler Technologies for the Citrus County Property Appraiser’s office online presence I would have gone online to see what kind of reputation the company had. Well, I wasn’t the Property Appraiser and he didn’t, but as one of the employees who would be working with the new system I thought it important to investigate for myself what the new system would have in store for us.” And this is what he discovered: Nassau County, New York had been using Tyler Technologies for 5 years and the  Nassau County, New York had all kinds of problems with them, not the least of which, was the fact the company’s system had been taxing the buildings of county government for property taxes! Nassau County is located immediately east of New York City. The county, together with Suffolk County to its immediate east, are generally referred to as “Long Island”. Two cities, three towns, 64 incorporated villages, and more than 60 unincorporated hamlets are located within the county. At the time Mr. Gregory did his investigation into Tyler Technologies, he said “this information was readily available, over the ensuing years Tyler Technologies had worked out it problems with Nassau County, New York and now has a 20 to 30 million dollar contract with the county for it’s online presence.” Gerry Mulligan Citrus County Chronicle Publisher Mr. Gregory also stated, “it’s not the end of the story and he had given this information directly to Gerry Mulligan 1500 MEADOWCREST COMPLEX CLICK TO ENLARGE:                         Mr. Gregory said, “If I had been appraiser when Les Cook wanted to go to Tyler Technologies for the Citrus County Property Appraiser's office online presence I would have gone online to see what kind of reputation the company had.

Mr. Gregory stated and further said, “When I met with Angela Vick, Citrus County Clerk of Courts and Comptroller, during my run against County Commissioner Ron Kitchen, Ms. Vick admitted the County was at wits end in trying to find a way to pay for all the manners related to Meadowcrest, then she said, Thank God, we finally figured out a way to pay for it.” Mr. Gregory stated, “According to the Florida Statute sited on the 2014 Citrus County Tax which the previous owner of the property received but had sold the property to Citrus County now between January 1 and November 1 of that year by a governmental unit exempt under this chapter for any means except condemnation for use exclusively for federal, state, county, or municipal purposes, the taxpayer shall be required to place in escrow with the county tax collector an amount equal to the current taxes prorated to the date of transfer of title, based upon the current assessment and millage rates, on the land involved. This fund shall be use to pay any ad valorem taxes due, and the remainder of taxes which would otherwise have been due for that current year shall stand canceled.” “The bottom line is Citrus County SHOULD NOT BE TAXING  it’s own buildings!” #TAMPABAY.COM #NYTIMES.COM #TWITTER.COM/NYDailyNews #tampabay.com #nytimes.com #twitter.com/NYDailyNews #CitrusCountySlushFund #DavidGregory #CitrusCountyChronicle #GerryMulliganPublisher #nydailynews.com #nypost.com #MoreLongIsland #SuffolkNassau #syracuse.com who doesn’t want anything to do with it, least of all to publish it in the Chronicle.

ENDORSEMENT REBUTTAL as it appeared in Friday’s Chronicle

In Citrus County Chronicle, county only newspaper, EYEONCITRUS.COM on kp01 at 312031

Graduating from Castleton University of Vermont in 1977, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology and a minor in Education, I owned and operated an Amoco gas station and general store while I attended college and with an apartment over the store in Whiting VT, it was a perfect fit. Coming down to Citrus County Florida for a winter break I met my future wife, Corl, plans changed and I bought a home in 1978 and have been living in Citrus ever since. My father, Bernard Gregory, a retired Army Sergeant with 22 years in the military, having jumped with the 101st on D Day into Normandy, came to Citrus with my mother, Rita, after I had made Citrus our home. There are now 5 generations of our family who call Citrus home. #tampabay.com #nytimes.com #twitter.com/NYDailyNews #CitrusSlush #DavidGregory #CitrusCountyChronicle #GerryMulliganPublisher #nydailynews.com #nypost.com #MoreLongIsland #SuffolkNassau #syracuse.com

This clipping from the Citrus County Chronicle is Mr. Gregory’s Endorsement Rebuttal, reprinted below:

Graduating from Castleton University of Vermont in 1977, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology and a minor in Education, I owned and operated an Amoco gas station and general store while I attended college and with an apartment over the store in Whiting VT, it was a perfect fit. Coming down to Citrus County Florida for a winter break I met my future wife, Corl, plans changed and I bought a home in 1978 and have been living in Citrus ever since. My father, Bernard Gregory, a retired Army Sergeant with 22 years in the military, having jumped with the 101st on D Day into Normandy, came to Citrus with my mother, Rita, after I had made Citrus our home. There are now 5 generations of our family who call Citrus home.

I have the unique experience of having worked with 4 different Property Appraiser Administrations with the Property Appraiser office. Starting with Ron Schlutz, Melanie Hensley, Geoffrey Greene and Les Cook, I’ve seen what works and what hasn’t over the 14 years with the office. It is my aim to put the best aspects of each administration into play and by keeping an open door policy with the public addressing their concerns when they should arise.

Before the years at the property appraiser office I ran my own business, Liberty Delivery, with 20 to 30 employees depending on the time of the year. We serviced all of Citrus County and had a contract with Citrus County that was renewed every year for 18 years! That was and is something unheard of today.

As I said to the Citrus County Building Alliance, being the only candidate that has been cross trained in all fields of the Property Appraiser office I offer the complete package for the future of the builders and others who will need that expertise as we transcend these difficult times that lay ahead. I was talking with my barber yesterday she bought a home in Walden Woods and I explained to her about having to buy the yearly stickers for the home, much like getting your vehicle registration renewed each year and because you do not own the land your home is on the land belonging to Walden Woods LLC and even with an amended Tangible Exemption of $25,000 that still left a Tangible tax bill for the owners of the park property of over $107,000 in 2019, subsequently the owners of the homes in the park and those who may be renting homes in the park will see a bill for their share in some form or manner.

Most of you have met people from different areas of business that can do the talk but can’t do the walk, I certainly have, in fact I’ve hired some during the years and having discovered their talk was the only thing they were good at! This is something you certainly don’t want in the property appraiser office. Not only can I do the talk I can do the walk because of being crossed trained in all departments of the property appraiser’s office I know where potential problems may arise before they ever appear.  Part two coming soon: CITRUS SLUSH

Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsey and the Shock and Awe Team of 2010

Article updated thanks to the commentary on the Ocala Post, greatly appreciated the much needed clarification.

When there is money involved, such as bonuses from the Federal Government, Sheriff Jeff Dawsey’s office and DCF acted without paperwork to get my grandchildren and where there was no monetary incentive they failed to act in a timely manner that could have saved a life regardless of location of the nearby house that the pedophile was registered in, he was not there, but his sister house was a few doors away and that is where her body was found days later, buried alive in two trash bags in the back yard, all on the same street and it was where she was keep alive for days by Couey. There was enough probable cause to have entered that house, you had a missing girl and the sister’s house of that pedophile was visited twice and never entered but she had been kept in the back room according to the Sheriff’s report, therefore it was a complete dereliction of duty and Mrs. Dawn DeDeo-Langer comment above as the wife of one of Dawsey deputies Tim Mike Langer, who covered the eastside of the county and who is running for Mosquito Control Board of Citrus County speaks for itself! Citrus County Deputy Sheriff Cregg Dalton my opponent in the Primary worked for Sheriff’s Dawsey as a Detective! I am an honest working man who worked as a private contractor for 18 years with Citrus County and retired from the Property Appraiser Office after 14 years as a Field Appraiser and it has always disgusted me to see the two sets of treatment citizens receive, the rich and powerful, one way, the everyday man off the street another, it’s not right! And as to how this relates to my running for property appraiser rest assured my door will be opened to all and fairness and equal treatment for everybody will be more than a tag line. I would like to thank you for the opportunity for me to clarify the details and I will update the article with the video, again greatly appreciated!

The audio in the video has been silenced in specific sections to protect the innocent.

This video is a look into the mirror; do you like what you see? Join me David Gregory, a working class man who is a Republican Candidate running for property appraiser in Citrus County, Florida, you will not find thousands of dollars in my campaign account, while the other candidates have tens of thousands of dollars in theirs, reaching to 100,000 plus dollars, who do you think these candidates, if elected will be beholding to? When laws are broken with no relief, the FBI has been known to follow the money trail, where do you think it will lead? But that is for a another day, if you like me are in the working class, do you want someone to represent you in Citrus County or the multi-millionaires of these corporations? Please spread the word and share on Facebook and through me take back our government, it will be the first step back to the way it use to be and should be. David Gregory
