I will be an independent voice for our citizens and I will work with Council to change some of the decisions made by prior Council to limit public participation in the process, including fixing our Rules of Procedure. I will work to significantly improve the positive and productive communication not only between Councilors on the dais but between the Council and the City staff and the Council and our County Commission and state legislative delegation. These are all areas where I feel that our current Council has not had the most success. If this can change, which I believe it will, we will find a solution to Goodland Rd, the COPCN, and millage rate that our entire island can benefit from.
I will lead the way to work together to identify the common ground on a variety of other issues like property rights/rentals, road/sidewalk repairs, and parks. In my personal experience, both in the private sector and in the grassroots, I have worked with many different people with different beliefs and priorities. I have always prided myself on the ability to identify positive and productive solutions that result in agreement that’s beneficial to all.
The divisiveness and rancor that exists does not serve Marco Island well. Together we can change that and bring out the best in Marco Island. I ask for your support and your vote during Early Voting (Oct 24-Nov 5) or on Election Day, November 8!
Candidate for Marco Island City Council
