The Palm Beach Post editorial board says a Lake Worth race is about "Trust"

Here is the first paragraph from the Palm Beach Post editorial board about the choices in the City of Lake Worth:
The key issue in Lake Worth’s municipal election seems to be trust, or the lack thereof. The question is, which candidates are best positioned to improve that trust?
Below is a short video of one of the candidates the Palm Beach Post endorsed (Stacey Singer wrote the endorsement): Ryan Maier. He lies over and over about being a member of a City Board:

Below is a letter from former Lake Worth Commissioner Retha Lowe confirming Ryan Maier is lying to the community:
Read the list below and you decide: do you think Ryan Maier has proven a high degree of trust (click link after each item for the reference)?

– Ryan Maier has the endorsement of the Florida NOW PAC? False.
– Maier falsely accused Commissioner John Szerdi of an ethical violation from the Inspector General of Palm Beach County. True.
– Maier later claimed he didn't make the accusation above. True.
– Maier has falsely claimed, repeatedly, having experience in city government. True.
– Maier has falsely accused Commissioner John Szerdi of "hiding" information from the public. True.

The Palm Beach Post editorial board (Stacey Singer) has made a huge mistake. Endorsements such as this contribute to the cynicism and apathy when it comes to politics in Palm Beach County. 

The Post acknowledges incumbent Commissioner John Szerdi's "talent and technical skills"; however, since he is in the majority, that simple matter alone makes him unqualified and untrustworthy. 

This endorsement is shameful.

Political advertisement paid for and approved by John Szerdi, non-partisan for City Commissioner
