Letter: Jarriel And Liang Best For Town

I support Ryan Liang and Ron Jarriel for re-election on March 10.

Both men care about how things are done in Loxahatchee Groves as we have numerous problems with how things were recorded when Loxahatchee Groves was platted.

We cannot just haphazardly implement trail systems on a whim, and with no legal footprint in which to apply to the trails, as the challengers have championed to anyone who will listen.

There has been specific talk about “subsidizing the district” with gas tax monies, specifically $150,000 that Ron Jarriel and the supervisors at the Loxahatchee Groves Water Control District requested from then-Commissioner Tony Masilotti over 10 years ago to keep us from having to raise assessments.

Tony stepped up, and presented the Groves with that $150,000 check until he left office, and the town had been born at that point. The town has filled that void to keep the per-acre assessment unchanged, to their credit.
The challengers will have you believe there will be no impact if that funding is removed. Don’t fall for it. Vote March 10 for Liang and Jarriel!
