I have no problem with wealthy people supporting wealthy candidates. I do however, have a problem with candidates not being up front with the electorate. I also have a problem with a hometown newspaper that has no idea what their role is during a local election. Will someone please ask the candidates for clear and concise platforms? This newspaper needs to do in-depth interviews to find out why these people are really running. General campaign slogans should be discarded. Ask some hard questions. A look at the donors list indicates to me that one of the candidates is much more interested in protecting gated commuities, beach renourishment paid for with public funds and continued restrictive beach access, protecting the status quo as to re-use water, it's avialability and protecting water utility costs that favor multi-family buildings. Now is the time to ask these questions while seeking out those candidates that intend to work for the greater good and not just those who want to preserve special privleges and protect their seperation from the rest of our community. People, follow the money and you will see that there is a real danger that that at least one candidate is running on behalf of a few and once in office will work to ensure the rest of the community pays for maintaining the lifestye of the privledged living in gated communities.
