DAYTONA BEACH -- It would be nice for once for Dorothy Hukill to stop playing politics when it comes to the news, especially that of Daytona International Speedway.
Hukill has blatantly been feeding the Daytona Beach News-Journal exclusive quotes on her committee's unanimous vote to provide $60 million in incentives to Daytona International Speedway as part of its $400 million makeover dubbed "Daytona Rising."
Hukill's spoon-feeding of the News-Journal does nothing to advance the project except to put the onus on her.
In a story headlined, "Speedway bill providing $60m in tax breaks wins committee nod," Hukill is quoted with the typical racing cliche and self-serving promotion, saying in part, “This is a real economic driver not, only for the county that I represent but really for the entire state."
Yes, Dorothy, the public certainly understands that without you stating the obvious for your media friends.
