Bodrum Mess and a Mayor Missing in Action

Yacht Charter Blog Dear Salvatore, I thank you very much for taking the time to bring to everyones attention the mess in Bodrum and the lack of action from the Mayor of Bodrum, Mehmet Kocadon.

He is only available for photo shoots and media blitz but when it comes to hard work the man is a ghost... I am glad that people like you bring this up to the attention of the general public. I only hope that they will react to this type of constructive criticism. The area is absolutely beautiful but needs to be managed better. I commend you for your work. Thank you. Hal ... (more)
