VIDEO: Meet the candidates in the Lake Worth District 2 race. Oh. . . and about that Wawa on 10th Ave. North and ‘A’ Street.

There are 3 candidates going into the election on March 14th. They are:
  • William Joseph
  • Omari Hardy
  • Chris McVoy
Hardy is the one that’s getting all the attention right now. Why? Be the judge for yourself when you watch the video (see below). William Joseph has a very heavy accent as you’ll hear for yourself. Chris McVoy is the incumbent, a commissioner since 2010.

The video starts off with the question about Code Enforcement in the City. McVoy goes first then next up is Mr. Joseph. Then from the 2:30–4:35 mark in the video are Hardy’s comments including his mention of a “ride-along” with PBSO Cpt. Baer (the only candidate to do so).

Interestingly, on the issue of the environment, at the 21:45–22:55 mark Hardy talks about doing “the little things”. For example, “we still use Round-Up at the golf course.” Makes you wonder where McVoy has been all these years being the one with a PhD in Soil Science.

And lastly, on the issue of a Wawa at 10th Ave. North and ‘A’ Street, Hardy at the 25:15–26:49 mark said, “it represents a challenge to the zoning map.” Hardy opposes a Wawa at that location in a residential area, especially with 2 schools nearby.

The video below is #2 of 5 videos total from the Bryant Park candidate forum on Jan. 23rd. If you have the time would encourage you to watch and share all the videos from my YouTube channel, use this link.
