Letter: Vote For Fred Pinto As Mayor

This is an appeal to the voters of Royal Palm Beach to vote for Fred Pinto as mayor.

Please remember that the old Martha Webster had credibility. The new Martha Webster has none. She is not seeking reelection to the council; she is seeking revenge. I have lost count of how many times she has been rejected at the polls by Royal Palm Beach voters. Will she be running next for president?

I am familiar with the quote from Winston Churchill that Gen Weiler quoted in her recent letter published in the Town-Crier: “If you have no enemies, then you have never taken a stand for someone or for something.” The familiar Churchill quote was, “So you have enemies? Good, it means you have stood up for something in your life.” He also said, and I quote, “Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary, it fulfills the same function as pain in the body, it calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.”

Does that sound like Martha?

I invite Gen to vote for Fred Pinto and see just how quickly you would become her enemy. Fred has potential, there is no doubt about it. Martha, on the other hand, flip flops too often. “She has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire.” Once in a while someone amazing comes along. That someone is Fred Pinto. Please give him your vote and everything will be alright.
