Political Monkey- wrenching 301: Taking advantage of absences at government meetings
Note how the two elected's in the video below took advan- tage of a mayor's absence. This forced an agenda item to a date uncertain, wasted tax dollars, and created more political divisiveness. Learn more using this link. And how did they do it? Watch and see for yourself:
Not happy about this? Be patient. The next election in Lake Worth is on March 14th, 2017.

“Lake Worth is walkable, bike-able, has a ton of amenities for its residents and visitors, as well as an active social calendar,” said resident Tammy Pansa. “You can move here knowing absolutely nobody and end up not being able to walk downtown on Lake Avenue without saying ‘hi’ to at least half a dozen people. It is a city that celebrates culture and diversity.”—Quote from Palm Beach Post, Sunday, March 20th, 2016.

Should City change its name to "Lake Worth Beach"?
Click image above. The Palm Beach County news media, both print and especially the TV news, has consistently confused our City with western communities. For a long time those false news reports have damaged our image. Unfairly. Is it time to take charge of our own City brand? Differ our City from all those areas that just share a "Lake Worth" zip code with our 6-square-mile City?
The City's Casino complex was "Green- washed" by a past city commission. Click image to learn more:
The former Casino was demolished in 2011 to make way for the 'renovated' structure. Then there's a looming possible default declaration. And the failed business plan. And the water leaks when it's raining. . .
Raising chickens, aka "Urban Chickens" IS NOT allowed in Lake Worth. Click image to learn more:
Image above from the inimitable Tom McGow. If you heard or read that chickens are allowed in this City that is absolutely wrong.
Is it possible for Lake Worth to get its own City police department back? The way it used to be?
Maybe if our City wasn't the headquarters for the anti- police, pro-Anarchy Ever- glades EarthFirst! (EEF!) led by Cara Jennings, et al. Click image above. PBSO is any- thing but "Worthless"— ergo the reason why Anarchs try to undermine our PBSO.
When Mayor Triolo shares baked ziti with fellow elected's, that is perfectly proper. Click image:
Unless you don't like ziti, of course. The Palm Beach Post editorial board is using their preciously held Free Speech right to squash the Free Speech of some Lake Worth elected officials. All resi- dents of this City should be very concerned about that. Any suggestion of Sunshine Law violations is unethical and baseless.
