Letter: Communities Need Unity

Regarding the recently held local elections, first, I would like to congratulate the Town-Crier on your complete, comprehensive coverage. Whilst I disagreed with two of your endorsements (Darell Bowen and Shauna Hostetler), your footnote read, “Whether or not you agree with our suggestions, be sure to go to the polls on Tuesday, March 13 to make your voice count.” That to me is typical of your unique journalistic style.

To the winners, I say well done; I congratulate you all. And to the losers, my commiserations. There is a very important lesson to be learned from this election. All six winners all support the Office of the Inspector General, and all were endorsed by our indefatigable County Commissioner Jess Santamaria…

For the good of our western communities, I urge all Wellington, Royal Palm Beach and Loxahatchee residents, please accept the fact that the voters have spoken and give your full support to all the elected officials. Let’s all unite. Wellington, stand by for some Margolis magic. Royal Palm Mayor Matty Mattioli has a phenomenal record of keeping property taxes low. Kudos to him, Vice Mayor Fred Pinto, the village manager and others.

Once again, for the good of our community, let’s stay together. Unity is strength, and we are all in this together.

Karl Witter, The Acreage
