In addition to the in-class cur riculum, participants will be matched with C-Suite level mentors and will be devel oping a written Individual Development Plan to guide professional growth.

www.bocaratontribune.com The Boca Raton Tribune Publisher EDITORIALS & LETTERS Business Our Writers/Reporters and Columnists Editorial Online Edition EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. POSITIVE LIVING Connecting With Other People There are some people we meet who, after several encounters, we still feel we dont know them, or at Is this their fault or ours? It can be of either one, or it can be from neither. Some people never show themselves adequately to others, while we ourselves can, sometimes, be slow in our own grasp of what theyve revealed about themselves to us. Words and gestures can be very deceiving, even when these have never intended so to be! There are others, however, that honestly portray their true selves from somebody new. They offer a key to their heart from the outset, apart from any potential romantic interest. More over, they dont leave any doubt about the genuine sincerity of their words, deeds, and intents. Their positive pos ture is fully genuine! Most often, the problem is more in the reluctance of someone in fearlessly accepting the other, taking that person at his/her word, more eas ily acknowledging the sincerity of the other, and not reading in the gestures and comments of the other what was not communicated at all. Unquestionably, some persons advertise themselves in such way that others can rather easily dismiss any desire of developing a long-term, friendly relationship. Theres something real that, in spite of cordiality, wont succeed beyond that initial hello. And there is nothing wrong with that! Friendships that are developed, and really go somewhere desirable, take in these and other related experiences. Varied settings for encounters can be planned, and time can be given for each person to observe the other in several human situations. questions may be legitimately asked one another, so as to establish a mental proceed until a true friendship can be established or only an occasional faceto-face encounter is desirable. Each individual needs to allow his/her temperament, and other unique dence and satisfaction, as an attempt happen. And when such is the case, how wonderful it can be for, as social creatures fashioned by a divine creator, people need people, and those who recognize that, and strive to achieve this goal, are indeed the luckiest people in the world! Col. Willie Bill J. Condry: A True Gentleman, Leader, Christian When Delray Beach city of Recreational Center some years ago, they tapped U.S. Army Colonel (Ret.) Willie reach such rank to address the issue. And when I needed advice on how to handle some recalcitrant subordi nates in the Navy, it was Col. who helped to navigate me through the challenge. A highly-decorated career Army in many heated disputes, Col. went to be with the Lord on Sunday with his family by his bedside at Bethesda Memorial Hospital. He was 90. He was candid and frank, and he was a source of knowledge. As a young reporter for one of the local newspapers, I would often sit with him outside his late mothers home and just listen to his sto ries. I had the privilege of spending more personal time with him, as my fraternity brother, and relished his sage tutelage. Oh, I marveled at his wisdom, especially how he could coin his phrase and make you feel good, even while admonishing you. He was a master of diplomacy. I recall at times asking him, Col., did the Army teach you that? to which he would smile and quip: C. Ron, you just keep living and you will see. The Quincy, Florida, native moved with his family to Delray Beach at Palm Beach County public school system. He graduated Carver High School in 1949 football team under the leadership of the late C. Spencer Pompey. He also served as president of the Junior and Senior classes. During World War II, at the age of 17, he showed his love and patriotism for the United States of America by volunteering for the Army. The highlight of his enlisted career was being selected to serve as a sentinel at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cem etery in northern Virginia. For sentinels, being selected for the walk is an honor they vie for on a daily basis. An assign ment to the midday walk, called the noon moon, is the ultimate prize. Upon his discharge, Col. re turned to complete high school then en rolled at Florida A&M College where he earned his bachelors degree and a com mission as a 2nd lieutenant in the Army. He served 30 honorable years including tours in Korea and Vietnam. He later earned a Master of Science in Education from Pepperdine University. The devoted husband, father, and family man showed love and affec tion with strict educational and family values, the love of his life, Helen Franklin Condry, told me recently. As she puts it, they were united for 62 years, 11 months and 21 days. They had two sons, Willie J. Jr., and Wayne O. After he retired in August 1980, he moved back home, which was when the City reached out to him. He lived in Boynton Beach and was active in both cities. He served as campaign man Council member Sam Wright, was a member of the Citys Human Relations and Parks and Recreation boards, as well as a member of Congressman Alcee Hastings Military Academy Cadet Selec tion Committee. He was also active in his church, Saint Paul AME in Delray Beach, where he wore many hats. I think among his prized duties were teaching Sunday School and Bible Study and singing in the Sons of Allen Male Chorus. Being the instigator, I often poked fun about his singing, to which he would respond with his trademark chuckle, And dont forget I heard you sing before C. Ron. were so many. He was a charter member of several organizations both here in his hometown and Hawaii, where he was last stationed. Services are pending at press time. It is said that some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. It is safe to say that Col. did not have that problem. On another important matter, Tuesday is election day and Boca Raton taxpayers have a lot hanging in the bal ance. I would be remiss if I did not urge you to let your voices be heard at the ballot boxes. S ix candidates are vying for two seats on the city council, including the mayors. Both positions are critical to the future of the city. Not voting could be a vote for the wrong person getting in of

Also joining the group, Mike Caruso, who is running for State Representative. A large turnout came to hear what they had to say about improving the quality of life in Boca Raton Most spoke about curbing the vast amount of building in the city limits. Tiger Bay Club Luncheon FAITH By Robert J. Tamasy It was U.S. President Franklin gural address, in 1933, We have noth ing to fear but fear itself. If I had been alive then, I might have been tempted to respond, Oh, yeah? Thats easy for you to say! Roosevelt had a point, however, because fear can be a powerful, paralyzing emotion, preventing us from doing or even attempting promising opportuni ties. A friend, David Sanford, wrote plague professionals. These include: Fear of silence (taking time away from atively and plan). Fear of sharing (presenting ini tial ideas or very rough drafts for others to consider and critique). Fear of selling (promoting pol ished concepts, products, plans, proposals and recommendations). Fear of rejection and failure (worrying about what others might say about us). Fear of success (worrying that others might expect more of us if we succeed). Virtually all of us can identify with at least one of these fears, possibly all of them. Several seem familiar for me. Stepping away from work to think, imag ine and plan sometimes goes against my grain. I should be doingsomething, not thinking!But if we do not take pauses from frenetic activity, how do we know we are doing the right things or doing them the right way? Selling has never been one of my strong points, as I learned early on when I was still in college. The prospect of try ing to persuade people to buy a product from me often felt like trying to twist their arms behind their backs. And I think we all have had times when we hesitated from moving forward, struggling with the thought, What if I try and do my best, and still fail? Even at this advanced stage of these fears at times. Then I try to remind myself of truths such as, If I do not try, failure is guaranteed. Or, to restate the Golden Rule, Sell unto others as you would have them sell unto you. But I have found that the real solution for overcoming fear is not clever slogans, but trusting in God, His wisdom and guidance. Here are some passages I have found helpful in that regard: Faith in Gods presence.When we confront daunting situations and fears, knowing God is with us in the midst of Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand (Isaiah 41:10). Belief in Gods love. We as Gods children believe He is sovereign that He knows our circumstances and is in control. Therefore we can trust He will use them for our ultimate good. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love (1 John 4:18). For you did not receive a spirit of slavery that returns you to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship, by whom we cry, Abba! Father!(Romans 8:15). Trust that God can deal with our obstacles. When problems appear too big for us to handle, we have the assurance God is bigger than our problems. What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?(Romans 8:31). Nothing To FearBut Fear Itself? Get FAA approved maintenance training at campuses coast to coast. Job placement assistance.

www.bocaratontribune.com Ber nard Korn will be run ning against Scott Singer and Al Zucaro for the role of Boca Ratons mayor in the upcoming election on Aug. 28. Singer has served as the citys mayor since Susan Haynie was suspended by Gov. Rick Scott, fol lowing her arrest in April. Korn graduated with a bach at Brooklyn College in New York and two years in the 1980s. He later worked in adult education at a Brooklyn high school and is currently a licensed real estate broker and instructor. Korn, who is planning to run for president in 2020, has never voted said he is determined to win the seat to rid Boca Raton of corruption. [The city council is] all cor rupt, he said. Susan Haynie was not working alone. Believe me. I know the players and Im cooperating with law enforcement now as we speak. He considered running for a city council seat during the last elec tion, but he said that he instead chose to mentor Kim Do, who narrowly lost to current city council member Jeremy Rodgers. Later on she got a campaign manager, she did things that I did not approve of, he said. So towards the end of the election, I said, Thats not the way we do things. Im a school. Im your mentor. She was my apprentice. We dont do things like this. She started taking money and spending money. So I basically abandoned her. And if she wouldve stayed the course, she wouldve beat him. He is running for mayor tions and only has the help of a press secretary and a few advisors, electing to not deal with volunteers. The contributions equal bribes, he said. Theyre bribes. The endorsements equal favors. I have no say is Whats in it for me? One of the issues he wants to focus on is overdevelopment, which he said is causing overcrowding in local schools. Education is very important to Korn, who said that he wants to intro students to start and end their days at different times. I did this back at South Shore High School [in New York], he said. We had the same problem. Too many students. He also suggested starting night schools or having classes on weekends, along with an option for el ementary students to come into school when the day usually ends, rather than starting in the morning. If elected, Korn said he wants to open up city hall 24/7 until he resolves the citys issues. He would also be reassigning or terminating numerous city employees, as well as reassigning the city manager and city attorney to smaller roles. I would be making decisions, not [the city manager], he said. I would be the CEO. Korn said that he wants to restore faith and trust in Boca Ratons government through new leadership, which he feels is something the city desperately needs. I am going to inspire a new generation of politicians, he said. Not only here in Boca, but throughout the United States. Meet Your Boca Raton Mayoral Candidates Bernard Korn Scott Singer Scott Singer will be running against Al Zucaro and Bernard Korn for the role of Boca Ratons mayor in the upcoming election on Aug. 28. After Mayor Susan Haynie was arrested in April, she was suspended by Gov. Rick Scott, leaving Singer to take over as mayor in her absence since May 7. He will be leaving his seat on the Boca Raton City Council in order to run for mayor, which is a seat he had occupied since he was elected in 2014. He was recently re-elected to seat A just last year. Singer has earned a bachelors degree in government from Harvard University and a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center. In addition to his current role as mayor, he also serves on multiple boards and committees, includ ing the Sober Homes Task Force and the Palm Beach Transportation Planning Agency. issue in the city that needs to be looked at and he cited his recent accomplishments regarding the issue as reasons for why he should be elected to the position. ready, some of which have been imple mented already to better move people and development have long been con cerns. You can go back to the archives of the Boca Raton news from 50 years ago and theyre talking about those issues when we were a city of 5,000 people. Singer also added that he is cur rently working on a plan for a dedicated access ramp that travels westbound from Florida Atlantic University to I-95. Maintaining balanced develop ment in Boca Raton is another item he wants to focus on. Singer said that he has been a strong voice against overdevel opment since he was elected to the city council in 2014, opposing a plan to add 2,000 residential units and only approving projects he feels were consistent with the citys goals and code. Singer added that public and school safety are very important to him and was proud to say that Boca Raton Parkland shooting in February. Recently, a long-term agreement was reached with the school district for them to fund the I was committed to having the taxpayers were funding it and now we dont have to be, but we had commitment not only visibly, but behind the scenes, he said. Singer noted that he is Boca Ra tons lone representative on the Advisory Boundary Committee and made sure that when school boundary discussions start again, Boca will have a municipal advocate there. If he was to lose the race for mayor, the city government would no mittee. If I lose my seat as mayor, Boca loses its seat and its voice on that board, he said. Singer said he believes that part nership with residents is key and along with that comes transparency, which has been put into question by many residents since Haynies arrest earlier this year. He thinks that one persons actions should not tarnish the entirety of city govern ment and he makes sure that all of the city councils dealings are in sunshine. We dont have behind the scenes conversations in stark contrast to one of my opponents in this race who has bragged on his own blog in the last month that hes had three closed door meetings with developers and negotiat ing a settlement without the residents having a seat at the table on Midtown, he said. I fought hard for residents to be involved in that process with multiple public outreach sessions and a full discus sion of planning of what was best for the residents. Right now, Singer feels that along with someone who has experience as mayor, the city needs someone with experience in Bocas city council as well. Not only do I have the ex perience of being mayor these last few months and leading the city through a turbulent time, I have the experience of being on the city council, he said. Im the most senior level there and were go ing to need that now. By: Michael Demyan Like us on www .facebook.com/BocaR atonT ribune
www.bocaratontribune.com Al Zucaro will be running against Scott Singer and Bernard Korn for the role of Boca Ratons mayor in the upcoming election on Aug. 28. Singer has been May 7 after Susan Haynie was suspend ed, following her arrest in April. Zucaro unsuccessfully ran for the mayors seat last year, losing to Haynie by just over a thousand votes. on the West Palm Beach City Commis sion from 1995-2002. He earned his law degree at Nova Southeastern University and a bachelor of arts in economics at Ford ham University in New York. Currently, Zucaro works as an immigration lawyer, as well as the publisher of BocaWatch. In 1999, he founded the World Trade Center Palm Beach and has twice been people in International Trade and Com merce. Zucaro believes that overdevel opment in Boca Raton is still a problem compared to when he ran for mayor last year and that the city is currently lacking strong leadership. One of my themes in this race is that the city council, under its current leadership, is reactive as opposed to proactive, he said. Theyre reacting to situations that have been allowed to fester for years as opposed to have proactively moved forward years ago to do what they should have been doing and now theyre doing it. School safety is also something that Zucaro is concerned about and feels that it is something that has not yet been addressed in an effective way. He said that the city previously did not care about school overcrowding that it was the school districts problem until the Parkland shooting earlier this year. Now all of a sudden, mem bers of city council are concentrating on school overcrowding [since the shooting] and talking a little bit about school safety, he said. He suggested adding a budget line in the citys budget which would en able the city to pay for off-duty police until the school board can solve the safety problem. Zucaro also feels strongly about improving the overall quality of life in Boca Raton, which he thinks is not up to par of what it should be. What Im beginning to see is the infrastructure, the roadways, the marking on the roadways, the stop lines. They are in some places nonexistent, he said. We are not doing for the resi dents that live in our city, some of the basic services necessary to meet that quality of life standard. Thats becom ing a major issue for me as a represen tative of the resident. He additionally mentioned that beyond infrastructure and roadways, Boca Raton parks are an important aspect of the city that need to be pro tected. now the issue of protecting the parks, protecting the recreational advantages that are in the city, and particularly pro tecting our beach. I have an exemplary track record on those issues. Compared to multiple other candidates who are and have run for local government seats in Boca though, he does not think that the city has explained that some improvements could be made, such as creating des ignated turning lanes to prevent some problems like they have in other places around the world, he said. We have and there is some legitimacy that some but what we havent addressed is how do we mitigate those periods of time so they are not as impactful as they are now. While Zucaro thinks that Boca Raton has the potential to be a worldclass city, it is not there yet and he wants to change that. There is this belief that we are a world-class city, but I think we are missing some of the basics in tak ing care of the resident as opposed to establishing an image.

www.bocaratontribune.com ELECTION SPECIAL 2018 Questionnaire 1. Kathryn Kathy Cottrell 2. Age: 60; 11/12/1957; Neighborhood: Lake Floresta; Married to Tom Rieman (Florida native, FAU Alumnus) 3. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in News Editing and Reporting from the University of Florida, a Masters Degree in Public Policy and Administration from California State University and a Doctorate (Ph.D.) in Organizational Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology. 4. Semi-retired, Organizational Development Consultant 6. Ive had a lifetime of volunteer, community and civic involvement. For the past several years, I have attended most city council and CRA meetings as well as city workshops to learn the issues of concern of the Boca Raton residents. I have a good understanding of the issues impacting our quality of life. I was a proponent of protecting city owned water front I served as a member of the citys Zoning Board of Adjustment. Recently, I held a leadership role at my local church as President of the Episcopal Church Women where I led the organization spearheading fellowship and fundraising efforts to support various causes including the design and introduction of a womens scholarship program and other efforts. I am a current member of the Boca Raton Pioneer Club and a member of the Boca Raton Historical Society. Among other Counselor. quality of life issues that are important to the citizens of Boca Raton. I am a native of Boca Raton, born and reared hereIve seen tremendous changes and want to ensure the future of our community has a semblance of what I experi enced growing up here regarding our parks, recreation and green space. Boca Raton is special. I believe preserving our qual to attract and retain businesses to come (and stay) in Boca because of what we offer from a quality of life and economic development perspective is essential. 8. School overcrowding is an issue. The city needs to do a better job assessing the impact of development on our already overcrowded schools; and while development is not the only reason for overcrowding (we acknowledge that changing demo graphics may also be a contributing factor to school overcrowding) it is the most preventable. The Boca Raton City Council has begun to take a more active role to address school overcrowding calling out the issue; creating a more effective working relationship with the Palm Beach County School Board and our own representative (Frank Barbieri) for joint problem solving; recently asking questions about the accuracy of recent School Capacity Availability De termination (SCAD) reports; using volunteer groups to help gather school information (such as the community advisory panel of which I was a recent member) and recently assigning an Education Task Force to address several issues including overcrowding. 9. I think we can do a better job of assessing, more often, our performance regarding pending goals/priorities and the status 10. City government is important on several levels most importantly they exist to serve the public -the residents of the sewage, etc.). But most important its to set direction and provide a vision for the citys future that encompasses safety, accordingly. There are hundreds of issues that go before a city government and the council members are elected to ensure the citizens needs and desires have been addressed when these issues are contemplated, and to ensure the local laws and regulations are in alignment with the greater state at large. 11. My strengths include my perspective of Boca Raton as a native and part of four generations of family living in Boca and my understanding of the concerns of the residents of Boca Raton a perspective that also spans having lived here over 30 years while spending time here throughout my life. My strength includes my advanced education (Reference Answer #3), having worked in Fortune 500 companies (in both a consulting role and having operational experience) with increasingly challenging senior level responsibilities having worked in multiple industries (healthcare, retail, government, hospitality, ferent views of life and living; my strength comes from having extensive travel exposing me to different people and varied life styles (Europe, South Africa, Japan, South America, etc.) giving me an even greater appreciation for this jewel we call home; my strength comes from my family, and parents who instilled in me a strong work ethic, an inclusive mentality and a passion for giving back. I also have a vast array of applicable skills due to my education that can be applied day one as a councilmember (complex problem solving, critical thinking, strategic visioning, process improvement, change management, 12. Top 3 campaign issues: 1) Im concerned about our quality of life as relates to preserving our green and recreational space, our beaches, and parks for our residents to enjoy, while continuing to keep and entice businesses to come to Boca who also want to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle our economic development depends on it. 2) The next issue concerns overdevelopment and its impact relative to our residents attitudes and preferences. With experienced leadership there are ways to ensure responsible development alongside economic growth. Responsible development can occur when we plan wisely and work to ensure a collaborative process with the residents and developers. 3) We also need to do everything we can to ensure we live in a safe environment especially as relates to our schools. Keeping our children safe is paramount and we need to implement whatever safety measures possible. These are not just my views, but the views of the many residents Ive met with thus far. 13. We should consider areas carefully and strategically. Based on criteria that is both pro and con from the city and the potential residents related to services, taxes, amenities, association, etc. Whats good for the City of Boca Raton and the resi dents in question? From a city perspective is there a return on the investment that makes sense? We would want to consider what would be a win-win for all. 14. My vision is a city which provides well planned development with public amenities second to none and a quality of life we can be proud of. During my campaign I have had hundreds of meaningful conversations with the residents of this City. sound and more. My major objective is not only to preserve but improve on those attributes that make us special. I want to preserve the past while evolving into the future. Among those cities that choose the path of overdevelopment, I prefer to see the City of Boca Raton as an Oasis (remember a City within a park?). 15. In many respects, Boca Raton is already a college town. Lynn University and FAU are a part of our history on many levels and we should celebrate and leverage that! Their success is our success and an increasing partnership with the city is Town and Gown program. We are also fortunate to be able to take advantage of supporting FAUs Tech Runway a great way to support local economic development efforts which, in turn, helps stimulate opportunities to help retain students postgraduation. 16. I am for responsible development! 17. I admire Abraham Lincoln our 16th President he was primarily a self-educated man, who rose to greatness, fought to abolish slavery, and endorsed equal rights. I see him as a role model still today in so many ways. Editors Note: Each of the three candidates for Seat A on the City Council received a copy of this questionnaire.

My career in business litigation provides a tremendous opportunity for public service through pro bono income individuals, and seniors. Based on my commitment to pro bono, in 2016, the Legal Aid Society of whom I am licensed to practice. I served as vice-chair of the City of Boca Ratons Education Task Force, which analyzes and provides recommendations to the City regarding public school capacity, construction, renova tions, and security. I also served on the City of Boca Ratons Community Advisory Panel, which provides a public forum for residents to voice their concerns and express their needs regarding quality of life issues in the City. With my background in civil engineering and transportation, I was appointed to serve on the Palm Beach County Transportation Planning Agencys Citizen Advisory Committee. TPA (the equivalent of a City Board, but relating to transportation, which is both a regional issue and critical situation. As a volunteer with the Eda and Cliff Viner Community Scholars Foundation, I am a mentor to a recent graduate Our family lives in Millpond, and I am the Millpond representative to the Federation of Boca Raton Homeowner Associations. Finally, I get to relive my college football playing days (I was a punter at Georgia Tech) by volunteering as a Com munity Captain for the Boca Raton Bowl. As a Community Captain, I help organize and execute the many events surrounding the game like the team arrivals, pep rally, and the bowl games participation in the Citys Holiday Parade. 7. Campaigns are essentially job interviews, and I have the ideal experience and skill set for this job. As a business litigator, I am trusted with solving peoples problems and resolving their business disputes. I am an advo the legal community has recognized that Im good at it; for six straight years, Ive been honored by Florida Super Lawyers as a Rising Star in business litigation. In our political climate, solving problems and resolving disputes are critical skills, and I am the only candidate who would meaningfully bring them to the job. Before I became incredibly useful on the City Council, and I am the only candidate who offers it. ultimately alleviate many of the capacity issues. Second, it created an Education Task Force to analyze, hear public input, and provide indepth recommendations regarding the overcrowding issue. I immediately applied to serve on the Education Task Force, was appointed, and was elected its vice-chair. The Task Force has been meeting my strong relationship with Frank Barbieri, Bocas school board member, will help in that regard. 9. I would like more in-depth evaluations of our city manager and city attorney. The council performs evaluations now, but they should be done far more frequently and be far more comprehensive; recently, those evaluations have been rare and cursory. I recognize that these evaluations may be uncomfortable because they are conducted in a public meeting, but that type of public scrutiny comes with the job. 10. City government is involved in so much of peoples everyday lives, and most of the time people dont even local government. If people care about any of those things and nearly everybody does they should care about local government. issues. Some people either shy away from disagreement or merely complain about perceived problems. But I see disputes as opportunities to bring people closer and work collaboratively toward a solution. Resolving disputes is my day job, and its a skill set that government at all levels but particularly local government needs. I also have our Citys long-term future in mind. God willing, I plan on being in Boca for 40 more years, and my kids will be here for 60 years or more. Todays issues are obviously important, but the long-term health and prosperity of our 12. Top 3 campaign issues: of living in South Florida particularly Boca Raton because people will always want to live here. Some of the 2. Keeping Boca Raton a World-Class City There has been turmoil recently between pro-development and anti-development groups, and I believe the best path forward to keep Boca Raton a relevant and vibrant city while still maintaining Bocas charm is by properly vetting the proposed projects, increasing transparency and public participation, and ensuring the projects that are approved align with Bocas character and foundation. Our quality of life here is so high because of two factors: public safety and our natural beauty. As a father of three young children, public safety is always on my list of priorities. I want to make sure we feel safe in our City, and families see Boca Raton our parks, beaches, and recreational areas so that future generations can grow up playing in the same parks that I did when I was a kid and have the same wonderful memories of Boca that I have. 1.

I am not controlled by developers or crazy dark money blogs. I am the strong, experienced and balanced candidate with a record of proven leadership. I am the only candidate who has real roots and results in Boca Raton. I have lived here 20 years, and my challengers hide the fact that they are 2 year and 5 year residents.

Ronald Reagan. He was an actor and a great leader. I am to follow in his footsteps. ELECTION SPECIAL 2018 3. More Communication, Understanding and Collaboration Too often, some people lose sight of how good we really have it in Boca Raton. Some seem to take for granted the resources and assets we have here, and they focus on what they believe is going wrong. One tangible example are struggling with how to reduce their crime rate or address the sober home epidemic. In Boca Raton, however, our most intense debate centered on whether to have a park or a high-end restaurant on a prime piece of waterfront real estate. Perhaps this is human nature, but perhaps it comes from a perceived disconnect with their leaders; if people feel as if they are on the outside looking in on decisions being made, they are far more likely to be critical. We can address this divide by working collaboratively with all segments of our City. I have vowed to and will represent ALL residents of our entire City. Once residents feel that every voice matters, including theirs, I believe that our City can work together constructively to address our issues. We can further accomplish this by increasing the transparency and inclusivity of the Citys business. Much of the turmoil within our City recently could be eliminated if the City promoted greater transparency, communication, and public participation. revenues generated from the annexation would need to exceed the projected costs of services. In addition, any considered annexing Boniello Acres, an equestrian-style community where residents are permitted to keep farm animals such as goats, chickens, and horses. It would not make sense for the City to incorporate that type of commu nity, and their residents largely felt the same way. 14. My vision for the City is to preserve our quality of life for our children. I have three small children (and one more on the way), so I also have our Citys long-term future in mind. God willing, I plan on being in Boca for 40 more years, and my kids will be here for 60 years or more. Todays issues are obviously important, but the long-term health and prosper 15. I love FAU. My parents met there in 1967, fell in love, got married, and I am the result. That makes me a product of FAU. Over time, FAU has grown substantially, and FAUs growth has largely been healthy for our City. I will push to make sure that Boca Ratons economy remains strong so that we have quality jobs available for FAU students once they graduate. 16. I am against overdevelopment and believe that managing growth is a critical issue in our City. But I also believe that responsible and smart growth, managed to ensure that we do not grow too fast, is healthy and will help keep Boca Ratons economy and quality of life thriving. 17. Abraham Lincoln. Not only did he guide our nation through our darkest hour, but he embodied humility, wisdom, and a servants heart.

B.A. Economics Fordham University; Juris Doctorate Nova Southeastern University 4. Attorney 5. City Commissioner, West Palm Beach, 1995 to 2002; President of the City Commission 2000 2001; ran for Mayor in WPB in 2007 against Lois Frankel; ran for Mayor of Boca Raton in 2017 against Susan Haynie 6. Various appointments to boards and committees countywide including, but not limited to, Palm Beach County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Board Member; Palm Beach County Board Member; Workforce Alliance, Board Member; Palm Beach County Film and Television Commission, Board Member; and others 7. I am running for Mayor of Boca Raton to complete the transformation of our city govern ment from a developer-driven institution to one that is more resident-friendly, including updat ing the City Charter, an obsolete document written in the 1960s and relatively unchanged in over a half a century; and to bring open and transparent government to the residents. 8. School overcrowding is a symptom of overdevelopment without planning for the foreseeable consequences. The City Council has been reactive not proactive regarding overcrowding. Until recently, the council has taken the position that overcrowding was not their job. As Mayor, I will develop a closer relationship with the school board; have a more active presence in Tal lahassee on these issues and place a higher demand on developers to contribute time, effort and money to the common good of school overcrowding and safety. 9. City Council performance is rudderless, feckless...the city council is the governing body of the city. Leadership is often non-existent and conversations about direction, policy and tactics are often embarrassing. The council defers to the administration more often than not. They rarely challenge the administration, accepting as gospel what staff tells them. Staff often misinforms and misleads the council with little if any push back by council on topics. I would demand all agenda review meetings be held in full public view; open and transparent govern ment. I would also insist that the City Council create and fund a position of Internal Auditor; a position that has the power to go behind the Manager and Attorney and report directly back to the council on assigned items. 10. City governments purpose is to avoid chaos and to insure quality of life for the resi dents. 11. My strengths are a deep background in local politics; an inquisitive mind and the strength of character to tell the administration what they are to do and demand that they complete it in a timely manner and within or under budget. Currently, the city manager leads a closed and non-transparent administration; as exampled in my comment about agenda review meetings individually with council members. Reportedly, councilpersons are called in separately and This often leads to the comment in chambers that I had questions, but the city manager and/ part of an open dialogue and all members of the council should hear the answers at the same time and on the public record. 12. Top 3 campaign issues: overcrowding; 2) Ethics or lack thereof is resulting in the perception of corruption requiring greater open and transparent government; and, 3) Diminished quality of life issues. 13. I am not in favor of expanding the service boundaries. 14. Returning to a less intrusive time; preserving our parks and beaches against development and commercialization; continuing with the notion of a city within a park and a low density play; and implement, as originally envisioned, the planned mobility concepts that have now 15. The city should welcome the opportunity to partner with FAU and negotiate for the Town and Gown concepts that have been talked about, for way to long now, without implementation. FAU is an economic driver and should be embraced. Boca is already a college town in many re spects. Our higher education campuses attract students for around the globe; couple this with the Boca Regional Hospital and the international airport and Boca Raton is perfectly situation as a major attractor for western hemispheric expansion. 16. I support responsible smart growthtaking into consideration the changing demographics and the charm and ambiance of Boca Raton. 17. Abraham LincolnHe saved the republic in a time of great divisiveness; he was a leader that did what was needed at the time in a historical period not unlike today.

Im proud of my work in partnering with residents and bringing needed change to champion a new school for Boca, oppose overdevelopment, improve planning, increase high-paying jobs, and enhance green space and services. I look forward to continuing to lead to improve the quality of life for our residents and ensure a brighter future for Boca Raton. provide 13 acres so that a new K-5 school could be built in Boca Raton, which will add nearly 1,300 student seats. opportunity presented itself. We have had frequent discussions with School Board Member Frank Barbieri to ad dress other factors affecting capacity, such as magnet programs, which the District is addressing. Ive been appointed to the School District Advisory Boundary Committee, where I will advocate for our municipal interests during boundary redrawing. 9. The City Council should continue to build on recent successes in providing excellent services to residents and planning for long-term success. Im proud of my record of having meaning dialogue with residents and giving everyone a seat at the table. I thought it was important to be the only council member in many years to have regular town hall meetings, and I will continue to do so. Listening to our residents is key, and thats why Ive worked to increase outreach and be a leader who listens. My record shows I have the concerns of residents in mind and the vision to keep Boca moving toward a brighter future for this and future generations. 10. City government is important because it is the level of government that is closest to our lives. We use city Councilman, Im proud to have voted to lower the already-lowest tax rate for any full-service city in the county, and at the same time, increased our world-class services by adding more public safety positions, expanding our parks and waterways, investing in our libraries, and generally expanding services. 11. My vision for the city is one of the reasons Boca residents should keep me working for them. Ive been a strong ness growth, communications, ethics, and accessibility. Ive proposed and worked to pass new laws and policies that have helped create high-paying jobs, cut red tape, increased transparency, and improved dealings with residents. Ive public safety positions, expanding our parks, and investing in our libraries. My record, including my town-hall series and forums on planning, show I have the concerns of residents in mind and the vision to keep Boca moving toward a brighter future for this and future generations. 12. Top 3 campaign issues: 1) Growth and Development. I have stood alone on the Council at times to oppose overdevelop ment, including on three of the largest proposed rezonings in our citys history. I have supported growth consistent with our code, land use map, and goals. The need for greater long-range planning is more palpable than ever, which is why the city needs to both continue planning efforts in process, like Midtown, and also pursue new initiatives. Some of these include injecting some more commercial opportunities into the older neighborhoods along Dixie Highway, encouraging the creation of a University District, and exploring changes to roadways like a downtown county to turn control of the lights at the I-95 intersections over to city staff so that they can be timed with the rest of our lights. We can continue to explore creative solutions, such as a downtown bypass along Dixie Highway, more than 1,000 units without proper planning, like one of my opponents recently and repeatedly proposed for the Midtown area, in direct opposition to his position a month earlier, before he was a candidate. of an economic development manager position, and last year, advocated for the departments expansion. The We face challenges from the overall U.S. economic climate, and greater competition from cities in our region, across the nation, and around the world. We have the opportunity to expand on our favorable tax climate to continue to attract substantial businesses. 13. I have no particular desire to expand the service boundaries of the city through annexation. Annexation should be done very carefully, and only if the areas to be annexed will result in a substantial amount of net revenue to the city and the neighborhoods are consistent with the character of our neighborhoods. I did not support a recent discussion to annex a neighborhood that differed in character and where the residents did not support it. 14. My vision for the city continues to honor our unique past and traditions and remain a vibrant community where people want to live, work, play, visit, and retire. 15. Boca Raton is a town with some colleges, but not solely a college town. We have a diverse group of profession als, industries, economic drivers, and attractors that will make the growing successes at FAU, Lynn, and PBSC an important part of our city, but not the sole focus of our city. We will work to propel Boca Raton forward through strengthening our schools as an important economic driver and for quality of life, better planning for transportation my term as Mayor, we set as a priority to focus on the medical and technology industries to leverage our successes (like the expansion of Modernizing Medicine) to create a medical/technology eco-system. Attracting young profes sionals remains a key focus of this initiative and other planning at the city. 16. I support reasonable growth and oppose overdevelopment. Ive been a strong advocate against overdevelop ment and have stood alone in opposing the single biggest upzoning in our citys history and other projects that did not improve the lives of residents. I have supported growth consistent with our code, land use map, and goals. Ive voted to strengthen our open space standards, set height limits to preserve our oceanfront neighborhoods, and op posed efforts to add excessive apartment units. ELECTION SPECIAL 2018 17. I admire President Theodore Roosevelt. He accomplished a great deal as a President, and most notably, was an independent thinker who built support in different camps, not having support from only one side exclusively but broad support from many people. He also accomplished a great deal outside of public service, as a noted naturalist, explorer, historian, and author.
