I’ve known Robert Snowball for more than 20 years as a neighbor and friend, and I am supporting his re-election to the Loxahatchee Groves Water Control District (LGWCD) Board of Supervisors because I believe that he is the best-qualified candidate for the job.
Robert has served on the board for 15 years and has done an outstanding job. He has fought to improve our roads and drainage and also to keep our assessments low. Currently, the LGWCD assesses our landowners approximately $150 per acre, significantly lower than some of our neighboring communities, which are assessing more than $400 per acre. I served on the LGWCD board with Robert for nine years, and I can personally attest to his honesty, character and sincere desire to help our community.
Robert deserves re-election because he knows the Groves inside and out, and he continually puts his time, effort and expertise into making the Groves a better place to live. Also, the residents get the benefit of his services at no cost. During his 15 years of service, he has consistently refused to accept the $50 monthly stipend the LGWCD pays its supervisors. His service has been an asset to the town, as well as the LGWCD. I do not believe we should replace him with someone who does not know us as well as he does.
If Robert Snowball is willing to serve our community for another three years, he has my vote. As my mother used to say, “Don‘t change the tire if it’s not flat.” Please take the time to vote on June 22 at the LGWCD offices at 101 West D Road between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
