UPDATE: Special Commission meeting rescheduled to next Tuesday.

The required public meeting to certify the election results from last Tuesday in the City of Lake Worth Beach will be next Tuesday, March 19th at 5:30 just prior to the scheduled regular City Commission meeting.

Originally this Special Meeting was set for later today, so please share this information around town.

Next Tuesday evening Lake Worth Beach commissioners Herman C. Robinson and Omari Hardy will be sworn in to serve another term on the City Commission but this time for three years. Consequently there will by no election of candidates in 2020.

Back in 2017 when the referendum passed extending terms for elected officials from two to three years some predicted the fall of Western Civilization just like now about renaming this municipality to become Lake Worth Beach.

Also back in March 2017 Mr. Omari Hardy narrowly avoided a run-off election by just eighteen votes and was elected to the City Commission.

Whilst on that note below is a YouTube video taken at the Lake Worth Playhouse debate on Tuesday, January 31st, 2017.

Interestingly, the previous day the top news story in The Palm Beach Post ‘LOCAL’ section was about a new shop opening on Lucerne Ave. called Artsy Fartsy Deècor and More. Maybe some of you will recall that former shop which was a distraction for a year or so. Sometimes a welcome distraction but more often not.

However, what grabbed the public’s attention that January two years ago was Hardy’s closing statement at the Playhouse debate. That four minutes on the stage cut through all the noise and later Hardy was elected defeating the long-time incumbent in District 2

Last Tuesday Omari Hardy was re-elected.

So without further ado. . .

In his own words from January 2017:
