NewsMakers: Tom Henning

He talks about Immokalee Master Plan.

Tom Henning

Lytle: So your town hall meeting in Immokalee was more than just giving your friends — your campaign donors in Immokalee — a forum to stand up and generate some publicity against the plan. You’re saying that’s not the case.

Henning: No, Jeff, and I don’t know where you’re coming up with these ideas ... you know, trying to get people against the plan.

My whole role to go out there in Immokalee is to try to put people opposed and favoring the plan together to find out what can be done to the plan to have a consensus of the community. That master plan has split the community.

Lytle: But see, all this came after you said, "I can’t vote on this." You took yourself out of the picture.

Henning: Right.

Lytle: But then you’re putting yourself back into the picture. It’s like you want to have it both ways.

Henning: No.
