Recently, Martha Webster has been trying to get public attention by spreading false statements, deceiving the public with the statement that the proposed RaceTrac gasoline station will “lower home values in Royal Palm Beach.”
This statement is 100 percent false, because this RaceTrac gasoline station will be the most attractive gasoline station in Royal Palm Beach and replace the two gas stations (Mobil and Amoco) that were forced to close as a result of the widening of Southern Blvd. to eight lanes, and will primarily serve all the customers of all the commercial businesses in the immediate surrounding area. This gas station will be in a commercial area that allows gas stations; the plan submitted has complied 100 percent with all government rules and regulations, and does not need one single concession from any government agency.
We should not be surprised if Martha Webster is attempting to use her false statements to get attention to run for the fifth time for the Royal Palm Beach Village Council this coming March 2016 (she has lost 3 of 4 elections), or for a candidate she will endorse. Once again, she will fail in her deceptive political aspirations.
