Transcript of Mayor Rachel Waterman's "Lovers and Haters" Speech

"Vote for me on November 8th and together we will transform Lake Worth's potential into reality.  I believe this election is not a choice between cavers and pavers, but a choice between lovers and haters.  I love Lake Worth.  The people that are going to vote for me love Lake Worth too.  We love our public beach and our waterfront.  We love our downtown business district which is now at 90 percent occupancy.  We love our neighborhoods and our small town charm.  We love the Playhouse and the Stonezek Theater.  We love the Street Painting Festival.  The Cultural Council will soon be opening its doors and LULA is coming soon and I am getting ready to love that too.  I love Lake Worth because it is unique, special and dare I say funky.  I am proud of Lake Worth because of the diversity of our city and it is a microcosm of the future of our country.  And I believe that we can lead the way, showing everyone how diverse communities can live together and prosper.  We will move beyond divisiveness and I am committed to use all of my talents and passions to get us there.  Please vote for me, Rachel Waterman on November 8th."  Mayor Rachel Waterman, Closing Statement, NAPC LW Playhouse Debate, 10/24/11
