Following the November 8th referendum to fix the roads and potholes, our municipal elections follow on March 14th, 2017

November 8th is a crucial vote here in Lake Worth (go to top of right-hand column to learn more) and so are the municipal elections just 125 days later, in March of 2017. Two commissioners, Ryan Maier (District 4) and Chris McVoy (District 2) are both up for re-election. . . if they choose to have their names on the ballot again.

Nevertheless, several challengers have already decided to run for those 2 seats and Herman Robinson is one. Several more are mulling a run and before long the stage will be set for next March. November 29th at noon will tell us a lot how serious those people are. Why is November 29th important? Continue reading:
Imagine yourself in the image above replacing one of the two on the right side. Mayor Pam Triolo, Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell (white shirt, blue tie), and Commissioner Andy Amoroso (left) were all re-elected by landslide victories last March.

If you are a voter and reside in Districts 2 or 4 you're already on your way to qualifying. Here are the district boundaries:
  • District 2. All that territory lying west of Dixie Highway and north of Lake Avenue.
  • District 4. All that territory lying east of Dixie Highway and south of Lake Avenue.
