Letter: Jarriel Supports Rockett And Browning

I have had the privilege of serving on the Loxahatchee Groves Town Council with both Jim Rockett and Dave Browning for the last seven years. Both Jim and Dave are men of character and integrity. I believe their hearts are into doing what’s best for the residents of the Groves. I believe our accomplishments in the last seven years will benefit the residents for years to come — such as: Palm Beach State College, Tractor Supply Company, purchasing the new town hall at half the price it cost to build and paying cash for it, just to name a few. Our town is debt-free with millions in the bank to be used to improve our roads and drainage. In this year alone, we have set aside more than a million dollars to improve roads and drainage.

Jim Rockett has fought hard to reduce our town taxes. He is one who would like to see the residents not have to pay any taxes to the town. He has fought hard to bring about the future traffic light at D Road and Okeechobee, making it safer for our residents to come and go. I know Jim to be an honest man and a phone call away from any resident who might need his help.

Dave Browning served on Loxahatchee Groves Water Control District for many years. When he made the decision to run for the council, he had to give up his seat on the LGWCD board. While serving on the LGWCD board and the council, he has been a good public servant to the residents of Loxahatchee Groves. He will continue to serve us well if re-elected.

Unfortunately, their opponents are making false accusations and telling lies about the town council. If you want to know the truth, please call me at (561) 315-5213. I will be available to answer any concerns you might have with documentation.

As a 54-year resident, for those of you who know me, and know how much time and effort I personally put into the residents of the Groves, I’m asking for your support to re-elect Jim Rockett and Dave Browning to the Loxahatchee Groves Town Council. Most importantly, please take time to vote on Tuesday, March 15 at Palms West Presbyterian Church on Okeechobee Blvd. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Hope to see you there!

Ron Jarriel, Loxahatchee Groves
