Letter: McKinlay Endorsement Questions

By at August 1, 2014 | 12:01 am | 1 Comments

Editor’s note: The following letter is in response to a letter from Pam Flanagan published last week. I write to assure Pam Flanagan that I am a registered voter in District 6 with every intention of voting Aug. 26 and Nov. 4 for Kathy Foster. Ms. Flanagan did a lot of regrettable name calling. As a voter, I stick to the facts, and I am going to give some more facts more...

Letter: Cookie Monster In The Groves

By at August 1, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

“Piggybacking of construction projects is not encouraged” was the message of the inspector general before a session of the Loxahatchee Groves Town Council and prior to the council’s approval of recent town road improvements. Currently, the Office of the Inspector General is scrutinizing the town’s piggyback contracts for that work. Apparently, the inspector more...

Letter: Support For Kathy Foster

By at August 1, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

The purpose of this letter is to call to our attention that too many times we vote along party lines and not look into what each particular candidate offers for us. Kathy Foster has been my friend since we met at our church some 25 years ago. Her record of accomplishment speaks for itself. As an early Wellington pioneer, she helped shape our Acme Improvement District more...

Letter: Support The Anti-Corruption Candidate

By at August 1, 2014 | 12:01 am | 1 Comments

It isn’t often that we have an anti-corruption candidate running for public office with the credentials and moral character of Michelle Santamaria, and it’s even rarer that the voters have an opportunity to vote for such a candidate who will represent our collective interest. Michelle gives credence to the notion that the interests of the voters of Palm Beach more...

Letter: Comment Was An Insult To All Women

By at August 1, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

This weekend, I read an article about the Palm Beach County Commission race in District 6 where candidate Kathy Foster said: “Melissa is a very nice girl, but she’s a secretary...” Are you kidding me? As an elected woman in District 6, I think Ms. Foster’s disparaging comments regarding a strong woman in the workplace brings us back to a time long ago that our more...

Letter: The Current Residents Must Come First

By at August 1, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

When does “planning” take into account current residents and lifestyles, as well as existing services? At the Palm Beach County Planning informational meeting concerning the Minto West proposals held at the Seminole Ridge High School on July 8, I asked a few questions for which I received either nebulous or no answers. For example, I asked if the county could more...

Letter: Still Corruption County In PBC

By at July 25, 2014 | 12:01 am | 1 Comments

Where are all the honest residents of Palm Beach County? Why are you not sticking up for your rights? Still, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is not being given the funding that is necessary to perform the duties that would stop the corruption in our county. The county commissioners and the public officials of the 14 cities that you voted for are not listening more...

Letter: Support For McKinlay

By at July 25, 2014 | 12:01 am | 7 Comments

Last week’s letter to the editor penned by “Jen Weiler of Royal Palm Beach” (quotations added as a quick search of the registered voter rolls has shown no such person in RPB) might be seen by an interested observer as nothing more than a very precise and well-thought-out campaign hit piece by the Kathy Foster campaign. We’ve been receiving costly mail pieces more...

Letter: Foster Stands Up For Seniors

By at July 25, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

The challenges for seniors keep increasing as our parents live longer and their resources become smaller. The finances of families are also becoming more and more stretched so that what we have to help our parents as they age also is less. One of the most important things that a family can do for their parents is to be able to help them to age with dignity, have some more...
