Levine labeled the county assessment “a lifetime tax of $100 per year.” “We don’t know that,” Kobernick interrupted. Spirtos described the neighborhood assessment as a five-year, $67 annual fee to cover the golf course purchase, plus a perpetual assessment of $8 to $33, depending upon the park amenities developed at the preserve. Mansfield did not issue an immediate ruling. Afterward, Kobernick said the women would appeal if the judge grants the county’s motion to dismiss their suit. The dispute centers on the plan to have the county and 1,791 property owners share the acquisition. The county is using the Penny for Pasco-financed environmental land program to preserve the 50 acres within the Gulf Harbors neighborhood west of U.S. 19. Levin has said previously she does not object to the park, just the imposition of the neighborhood assessment to pay for it. The course opened in 1971, but shut down more than a decade ago. The county put the course on its environmental lands acquisition list in 2013, but was unable to come to terms on a price.

The couple finally married in 2007. Brigitte Macron is now campaigning by his side, as is one of her daughters, Tiphaine Auziere. “He was always interested in public affairs, civic life, but I never heard him say he wanted to be president,” step-daughter Auziere said. “However, I always saw him being involved…, saying there are some things that we should change in society in order to tackle injustices.” Mongin told The Associated Press that Macron’s political determination also comes from his singular personal life. “He is someone who took risks in his life,” Mongin said about Macron’s decision to live out his love story with an older woman. “His parents threw him out, he slammed the door. There is a life experience here, there is something a bit hard,” Mongin added. Macron has an impressive curriculum vitae. He studied philosophy, was awarded for his skills as a pianist, attended France’s elite Ecole Nationale d’Administration for graduate school and worked at Rothschild as a successful investment banker. French people discovered Macron when he was nominated economy minister in August 2014, after two years as a top adviser to Socialist President Francois Hollande.
