Politics in our City of Lake Worth and why 2020 will be very significant.

By the way, Election Day is tomorrow. And below are some questions and following those questions are the answers.

Do you know where your precinct and voting location is, the actual place and street address? Do you know in which of the four City districts you reside? For the City-wide precinct map and the list of all voting locations in the City of Lake Worth click on this link. Election Day IS A CITY-WIDE ELECTION for mayor and commissioner in District 1. 

Why will the year
2020 be so significant?

Do you remember the City of Lake Worth’s ballot question in March of last year? That ballot question will have a significant impact on the future of this City of Lake Worth. Did it pass? Did it fail? Find out below.

“Question” on ballot, 2017: 


“The present Charter provides that commissioners and the mayor are elected for two year terms. The Commission has proposed that commencing with the March 2018 election the commissioners and mayor shall be elected for three year terms. Shall the above described amendment be adopted?”

Was “above described amendment” adopted?
See the answer below:
City of Lake Worth - Question.
The public said,

As a result of the
March 2017 referendum:

Election Day, March 13th, 2018: Whomever is elected for mayor and commissioner in District 1 will begin serving a three-year term. District 3 Commissioner Andy Amoroso was automatically re-elected to a 3-year term because he had no opposition for his seat on the City Commission. If he seeks re-election that will happen in March 2021.

Election Day, March 12th, 2019: District 2 Commissioner Omari Hardy and District 4 Commissioner Herman Robinson will be up for re-election. Whomever is elected in March 2019 will serve a 3-year term.

March 2020: There will not be an election of candidates in 2020. A year off from elections in this City of Lake Worth. How cool is that!
