Greed & Collusion was common place in Gulf Breeze city hall
Updates to content on the site as of 01/23/2023
Between the years of 2007 and 2012 the city of Gulf Breeze, Florida otherwise known as Gulf Breeze Proper just across 3 mile bridge from Pensacola, working alongside Ed Gray of Capitol Trust Agency earned $64 million in fees by issuing municipal bonds to other communities. During this time, city owned parks of Gulf Breeze Proper were falling apart and I was injured in McClure Park behind Publix grocery store when a chain on a swing broke.
A year later and two weeks before the citys insurance company issued me a letter saying the parks were safe, a video was made that showed swings still in a condition of breaking (just two weeks before the date on the letter). That video is posted below. There was one swing still hanging in McClure Park next to the swing that broke injuring my spine, it too was about to break because the city chose not to fix the unsafe conditions after my accident.
Also a swing just outside the Gulf Breeze recreation center was within days of breaking after the citys insurance company claimed their investigation (that never happened) showed no unsafe conditions in the parks. The unedited video that proves these things is dated using the front page of a Pensacola News Journal newspaper. When the citys insurance company "Florida League of Cities" letter was sent to me, Gulf Breeze Florida mayor Beverly Zimmern held a board seat at Florida League of Cities Municipal Board of Trust. This collusion prevented me from pursuing damages for a spinal injury that occurred when that swing broke. I couldn't get a lawyer to help me because they all told me Florida has sovereign immunity from accidents on city property and they can't win a lawsuit against a city.
The Gulf Breeze News (local paper) was also alerted to these issues but told me to stop calling because they had no intention of doing a story about these things. This left dangers where children play throughout the community as parents were left in the dark about what was happening. WEAR TV and Pensacola News Journal also refused to investigate it as well because executives of those organizations lived in Gulf Breeze Proper and didn't want to upset those in city hall.
After this I received an anonymous phone call that told me if I didn't stop talking to media about what happened, I'd be sorry I ever stepped foot in Gulf Breeze. During this time the city conspired with Slade & Darnell to develop a coverup story to make it look like I somehow staged my accident, however anyone with half a brain can easily look at the evidence I compiled that would show that was impossible. As a result of this, employees at Slade & Darnell wanted nothing to do with conspiracy to help Gulf Breeze create a coverup and quit their jobs according to witnesses who spoke to Cullen Hoback of Hyrax Films. No one has ever been held accountable for these things and I live with a permanent injury that inhibits daily life activities. Ron Pully, the director of parks and recreation for the city of Gulf Breeze spoke to a women on the phone recently saying I quote, "that poor guy was hurt really bad", but he also said he couldn't say any more about it and ended the call.
Its important that these crimes against me are properly dealt with as the people of America cannot allow cities to be granted immunity from liability when they knowingly and purposely leave these types of dangerous conditions in public parks.
It should also be noted that for the last 10 years, the city of Gulf Breeze has continuously violated my 1st amendment right to free speech when they censor me trying to get this story out on social media.
While this was happening, the city of Gulf Breeze made loans to other citys and venues totaling nearly $700 million. See loan documents here: Gulf Breeze Loan Docs
But they couldn't correct dangerous conditions in the city's parks and playgrounds.
City manager of Gulf Breeze, FL from 1992-2017. Mr Eddy ignored the dangerous conditions in his city playgrounds during his tenure as the city manager. Eventually this caused a tragic accident which the city covered up with the help of local media, the city attorney, a local representative, a senator and the governors office. Edwin Eddy now serves as a Senior Adviser for Florida City and County Management Association
Ron Pulley is the Parks and Recreation Director for the city of Gulf Breeze Florida. Following the accident in McClure park Ron Pulley ignored extensive safety hazards in parks throughout Gulf Breeze Proper. As director of parks and recreation for Gulf Breeze one would think his job would entail correcting the safety hazards to prevent further injuries. That never happened though and he remains in the same job today. Any company would of fired him after this happened, but the city pats him on the back and says no problem we're not liable by LAW.

Mr Dannheisser was the city attorney before he became mayor. His creative talents as a lawyer worked in collusion with the city manager to cover up the negligence the city was accused of. These days mayor Matt Dannheisser helps lawyer friends make money off the city by stealing a local family's land against multiple court orders, see the facebook page here LAND GRAB CASE
After the accident, governor Charlie Crist recommended contacting Don Gaetz regarding safety hazards in Gulf Breeze city parks. Governor Crist said the governors office didn't have jurisdiction to request Gulf Breeze fix safety hazards in their parks. He mentioned cities do whatever they want on a local level. But governor Crist did say Don Gaetz had jurisdiction in Gulf Breeze. When contacted Don Gaetz said the governor was wrong and Gulf Breeze was out of his jurisdiction so there was nothing he could do about the dangerous conditions being left in city parks. Those conditions were documented on video nearly a year later because in Florida politicians pass the buck.
Beverly Zimmern traded her city council seat for the position as mayor in 2009 to propel the cover up as she worked in collusion with Florida League of Cities to issue a no wrong doing letter releasing liability of the city which caused the accident. At the time, she served on Florida League of Cities Municipal Insurance Board of Trust which issued the letter regarding her city's liability in the matter. This is considered a conflict of interest when you hold a board seat at the insurance company who investigates an accident your city is involved in. Beverly Zimmern is above the law so this worked out well for her city.
Gulf Breeze News was told about the dangerous conditions being left in city parks of Gulf breeze Proper after the accident. The newspaper didn't think it was news worthy that city officials were leaving dangerous conditions in local parks and would not speak one word about it. Those conditions remained nearly a year later when a video was made documenting the dangerous conditions of park swings. Its unknown how much longer they remained this way beyond this because the injured left the area due to threatening phone calls for speaking to the media.

Gulf Breeze city officials orchestrated Black Box Deals as the citys playgrounds were rotting and injuring residents
This is a story of playground safety being neglected in the city of Gulf Breeze Proper while city officials made millions of dollars orchestrating what Bloomberg News referred to as "BLACK BOX DEALS" in the municipal bond market. The city of Gulf Breeze Florida covered up an accident so no one would ever know it happened so they could better concentrate on the financial scams they were involved in.
Decades of wear to swing chains left to break when used was common place throughout the city's public parks, and it continued to be long after the accident occurred as the city raked in millions of dollars in fees as the originator of so called black box deals involving municipal bonds. Ed Gray of Capitol Trust Agency was the ring leader of such financial endeavors as the citys coffers overflowed with cash.
This story sheds light on how city officials put the entire towns safety in jeopardy as they enriched themselves. As parents and nannies took kids to play in parks throughout Gulf Breeze Proper, little did they know swing chain links and other playground equipment had decades of wear ready to break as our video would show 10 months following the accident. Public parks usually project a level of trust, but in this case that trust was merely smoke and mirrors as city officials sat by and did nothing to correct the dangers in their parks.
