LTE: Support For Sam Young


With the election just days away, I felt a need to write about my support for Sam Young for Marco Island City Council.

Just spending a few minutes with Sam you quickly learn it’s obvious that Sam Young is the people’s choice for Marco Island City Council.

I have personally had the pleasure of working with Sam during his service for our City. It was immediately clear to me that Sam truly cares about our community, our waterways and beaches, and working together with others to accomplish big things for our Island.

Sam has been a dedicated, hardworking volunteer on our City’s Waterways Advisory Committee and has the proper extensive professional background and expertise to bring the citizens’ voice to Council, something we desperately need. He has run a positive, focused, passionate, issue-oriented campaign.

I have seen him meeting with residents to talk about his campaign, discussing solutions to our water quality issues, and expressing the need to improve our city services to meet our citizens’ expectations.

I was happy to see that Sam Young placed first and second in recent Marco Island voter straw polls, and to read that Sam has picked up many endorsements to go along with the many yard signs of support all across our island.

With so much negativity out there, Sam Young is a refreshing change in local politics. When I go to vote for this year’s City Council election, I know Sam is my choice and I hope you will all join me in also voting for Sam Young for Marco Island City Council.
