Pinellas' Morroni drops commissioners on Facebook



Add Pinellas County Commissioner John Morroni to the list of politicians unfriending fellow board members on Facebook over open records and meetings concerns.

Morroni said he unfriended other Pinellas commissioners after Commissioner Ken Welch told him of Welch's decision to cut ties with board members, following concerns by County Attorney Jim Bennett.

"I was always concerned about it but I never put anyting on my wall that has to do with work," Morroni said, noting he once unfriended a tea party activist after the man used Morroni's Facebook wall to criticize him.
