The Telling Tale of Two PACs: “Lake Worth Yes!” and “Save Our Neighborhood, Inc.”

About the last two reminders of the dueling PACs.

These two PACs both formed in January 2015, over four years ago. And many of you who follow politics will remember those former political battles long since over and decided.

The Lake Worth Yes! PAC turned in their Termination Report (TR) ending its mission as a political committee late in 2018. And it was indeed a job well done.

There was money still available in this PACs campaign account and last August they shut down the PAC and donated all the money to Donors Choose: “Support a classroom. Build a future”.

The money was distributed to:

  • Lake Worth Community High School: $3,505.31
  • Highland Elementary School: $1,052.35
  • Barton Elementary School: $589.81
  • North Grade Elementary School: $109.03

The treasurer and chairperson of this PAC many of you know as City resident Peggy Fisher.

Now to the PAC Save Our Neighborhood, Inc.

On February 1st this year the Save Our Neighborhood PAC has decided to continue on, sending another check to the State of Florida.

Here is a previous report report from 2018.*

According to the latest treasurer report this PAC has about $1K available. What’s the purpose of keeping this PAC active? For the memories? Just terminate this PAC as well and donate the balance of the funds to a local public school.

The days of the dueling PACs are over.
