Huh? The City of Greenacres was left out again in the print edition of the Post?

In today’s print edition of The Palm Beach Post is this article with contribution from staff writers Sarah Peters, Lulu Ramadan, Wayne Washington, Kevin Thompson, Alexandra Seltzer, Matt Morgan, Tony Doris and Eliot Kleinberg.

The article cites in order: Glen Ridge, Palm Beach, Wellington, Riviera Beach, Pahokee, Westlake, Palm Beach Shores, Jupiter, Royal Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Boynton Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Boca Raton, Gulf Stream. . .

But guess what city isn’t mentioned at all? A city that has, or it’s claimed has beat reporter Kevin Thompson covering their local politics: The City of Greenacres! (learn about Greenacres’ form of government using this link).

From the Post’s online edition, which has far less readers than the print edition, is this informative item titled, “Who’s running for municipal office in Palm Beach County” (emphasis and links added): 

Joel Flores
Jonathan Pearce
City Council District 1
Lisa Rivera (i)*
City Council District 5
Paula Bousquet (i)
Michael Albert
William Kluth

Also from the cited article above: “Those marked with an asterisk (*) have no opposition and are automatically elected. Incumbents are indicated with an (i).”

Congratulations Councilwoman Lisa Rivera!
