For almost 10 years, I have been chair of the Royal Palm Beach Planning & Zoning Commission on two different occasions. I have been closely involved on all the issues facing the Village of Royal Palm Beach. During that time, I have gotten to know Councilwoman Selena Smith as a hardworking and caring person. Even though I have moved, I believe Selena is the correct person to re-elect for another term. I have met and have had an opportunity to talk to her opponent. I believe, with time, he may be an asset to the village. At this time, however, I believe Selena is the person to re-elect. She remains dedicated to working with the seniors of Royal Palm Beach, improving the infrastructure in La Mancha and increasing transparency with the residents. I am asking all the residents that I have been associated with during my tenure on Planning & Zoning to re-elect Selena Smith to another term on the Royal Palm Beach Village Council.
