Must-read: Business Development Board sticks Martin taxpayers with bar tab

(Source: SweetwaterBrew.com)

The Palm Beach Post’s Sally Swartz delivers a must-read, blistering report on the Martin County Business Development Board:

First consider the Bourbon Cowboy, a New Orleans watering hole where the businesslike motto “Aww Hell Yeah!” is posted beside a photo of a pretty girl riding a mechanical bull.

Next check the website for the Sweet Water Brewing Company bar in Atlanta, which includes a “punish the liver” schedule and girls in pearls and feathers posing with an Elvis impersonator.

There’s also San Antonio’s Mad Dogs Pub and the Iron Cactus, a top 10 tequila bar, Boston’s Whiskey Priest and, closer to home, the Red Light District Night Club in Miami’s South Beach.

What all these establishments have in common: Martin County’s Business Development Board executive director Tim Dougher. The BDB chief charges drinks and meals wherever he goes, even when he’s not meeting with representatives of businesses he hopes might set up shop in Martin.
