Letter to the Editor: Worthy of our support

Once again the election season is here and as voters we are being inundated with mailings and candidate information. I would like the voters of Marco Island to know of my personal experience with two outstanding candidates who are running for Marco Island City council positions.

Amadeo Petricca and Kenneth Honecker are long term full time residents of Marco Island and have over many years served on many important city boards and committees. These well qualified candidates have devoted countless hours of their time and resources to help make Marco Island a better place to live and to provide expertise to the Council so that our tax dollars are well spent.

Amadeo Petricca comes from a strong background in finance and accounting and has served the city well in helping council understand where our dollars are being spent and how to account for our funds. Mr. Petricca’s attention to financial details and accounting rules have helped keep the city on the correct path to fiscal accountability.

Kenneth Honecker has over many years worked diligently with city boards and committees to assist in accurate and fair cost for residents in city planning and water utility rate structures. He has also worked for the protection of residents involved with short term rental homes in our neighborhoods.

Both of these candidates have no agenda other than to provide Marco Island taxpayers and voters with honest and fair government and a sensible open approach to governing our island. Give these dedicated men an opportunity to create a new city council, one which will represent all residents of this Island Paradise.

William Duncan,

Marco Island

Correction. Both candidates mentioned have done nothing to make Marco Island a better place to live. Both candidates have fought tooth and nail to stop Marco island from becoming a better place.
A complete article containing their past quotes and efforts (factual) will be published shortly so that all voters can make up their minds as to who is best for Marco Islands future
