Surely something on the ballot this November is important to you. Whether it’s conservation of Florida land, the legality of medical marijuana or who selects Florida Supreme Court justices, there are questions on the ballot that need your input. How about whether Lee County Schools should take a baby step toward single member districts or should our County Commissioners have term limits?
All those questions are on the November 4th ballot. Plus there are important local races – two seats on the Fort Myers Beach Fire Board will be decided. Plus seats on the School Board, Lee Health Board, County Commission – all important decisions and we haven’t even crossed the county line yet.
Voters are turned off on this election thanks to the ugly gubernatorial race. If you let that keep you from the polls, your community will lose out on your voice in how it’s governed. Hold your nose and vote for the least offensive candidate, or vote for a third party candidate or skip the governor race entirely on the ballot, but please, VOTE! Your community needs your voice!
Cool – Warm – Perfect!
Our streets are lined with zombies, baseball players and swimsuit-clad northerners eager for some sun time. It must be almost November. October flurries in some northern cities seem to have triggered a rush to our sunny shores.
