A New Day in Tamarac!
Election Day has come and gone. The results are in and the victory or concession speeches made. The campaign signs are coming down, and your favorite commercials are back on the air. All is done for another campaign cycle.
But what about for future campaigns?
I have made no secret of my disgust and disappointment regarding things that happened and were said during this campaign cycle here in our own City, and now that the elections are over I plan to do something about what I've seen and experienced. Once I have things in the works, I will share what the plans are.
For now, here is what I can share……
Our City has experienced several very heated races this cycle which have been decided. What is needed now is for everyone to put our differences aside and work together for the betterment of our City. I am not saying we should agree on everything and sing "Kumbaya." What I am saying is we should find ways to work on those issues we agree on and not wait for another election cycle to get involved.
All of the candidates and the volunteers who backed them should stay connected, building on the excitement of being part of the City. Now is a perfect time with applications for Tamarac University open to residents. Click here to get more information.
There are also many volunteer opportunities available through Parks and Recreation. For those who are interested, there are also opportunities with BSO's Citizen Observer Patrol (COP) or Tamarac Fire Rescue's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Whatever you do, please keep the positive energy flowing and use it for the good of our City. I am always available to discuss ways to help.
The Swearing-In Ceremony for Mayor-Elect Michelle J. Gomez, re-elected Commissioner Debra Placko and Commissioner-Elect Mike Gelin will be held in the Commission Chambers at 10 am on Tuesday, November 27, 2018. I encourage everyone to attend.
