On March 17, we will have a very important election, where Naples residents will be selecting a Mayor, as well as three City Council members. With more than double the candidates for these positions, residents will have to engage with the issues and the candidates to ensure their vision aligns with our hopes for the future.
There are a number of key matters which the City must continue to address, such as striking the right balance between desirable redevelopment while not sacrificing Naples’ small town character, fixing the stormwater infrastructure, which affects water quality in the City’s lakes, bays and just off the beaches, traffic flow and congestion, including whether additional parking garages would be the best and most cost-efficient use of redevelopment opportunities, to mention only a few. It is vital that you educate yourself about these important issues and understand how the candidates would respond to them.
Please join us for a Candidates Forum on January 23 at 8:30 a.m. in Sugden Hall at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 500 Park Shore Drive. Complimentary registration is available online at www.GSACNaples.org.
