Brickfield gets a reprieve on Pinellas Commission



A few weeks ago, we showed off a site by a critic of Pinellas County Commissioner Neil Brickfield. The site,, ripped the commissioner mostly for spending decisions by the county and his record in Safety Harbor.

But apparently site creator Tom Rask has a new appreciation for Brickfield, based on the site's latest message:

"I put up this website in order to criticize Neil Brickfield for not being careful enough with the tax dollars. However, after Brickfield's vote against the wasteful 2010 county budget, and other signs that he is beginning to realize the seriousness of the economic situation, I decided to withdraw my criticism for the time being," Rask says on the drastically reduced site.
