Tonight: Guest speaker Michael Bornstein at the Mango Groves Neighborhood meeting.

UPDATE: At tonight’s meeting will be another guest speaker as well. Mr. Chip Guthrie will give a brief talk about the very successful “first appearance” initiative here in the City. This is where the public shows up at hearings for those arrested for prostitution, street crimes, etc. The judge learns how much citizens in this City care about solving these vexing issues, e.g., on Dixie Hwy.

“The May meeting of the Mango Grove Neighborhood Assoc. is at 7:00 tonight at Blue Front BBQ.* Everyone is welcome to attend.
     This month’s guest speaker will be Lake Worth City Manager Michael Bornstein. Mike has been the city manager in Lake Worth since 2012. He has been professionally involved in local governments here in PB County for over 25 years. He came to us after serving the as town manager in Lantana for 12 years before coming to Lake Worth.
     We hope to see all our neighbors and friends Thursday evening with our city manager at Blue Front BBQ.”

“Michael Bornstein seems to be a happy soul and seems to be happy with the job,” [Barbara Jean] Weber said. “I suspect his stamina has not yet been tested.”
—Ms. Weber quoted by reporter Willy Howard on June 3rd, 2012, in a Post article titled, “New City Manager Michael Bornstein makes welcome changes in Lake Worth”, published 1,859 days ago. Mr. Bornstein was hired by the City on April 16th, 2012.

*Did you know the Blue Front BBQ (1132 N. Dixie Hwy.) used to be “Kristine’s”? The Blue Front is a significant historical structure here in the City of Lake Worth. One of the few remaining survivors of what’s called the “Mom & Pop” era of roadside architecture, the dining and motel era prior to the construction of I-95.
