#4thOfJuLIARS: City Commissioner Cites Made Up 'Facts' As Reason For Shutting Down Fireworks

The City of St. Augustine has shut down fireworks, with at least one commissioner, John Valdes, saying he did this because all neighboring counties had made the decision to pull the plug.

This was in fact, something that Valdes apparently completely pulled out of his ass.

After being called out on the morning show (again when we noticed he was watching) Valdes quickly edited out what he seemed to be claiming as his justification for shutting down the show.

Not one place that Valdes mentioned (Jacksonville, Flagler, Daytona) have made the call to pull their fireworks shows.

How often is this city commission making these uninformed decisions?
