NAVY WALK....THE FIREHOUSE....BARBEQUE GRILLS....THE BEACHFRONT

THESE HAVE ALL BEEN ISSUES IN THE PAST ELECTIONS. THIS YEAR'S ISSUE WILL BE, WITHOUT QUESTION, SALTAIRE VILLAGE FINANCES.

BECAUSE OF THE PROPOSED $5 MILLION BOND ISSUE, THE TAX INCREASES, THE HOME SALE TAX (FLIP TAX), AND INCREASES IN THE VILLAGE BUDGET, OUR DISCUSSIONS SHOULD BE FOCUSED ON SALTAIRE'S FINANCES AND HOW WE SPEND OUR MONEY.

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A MORE CRITICAL TIME TO HAVE A TRUSTEE ON THE BOARD WITH A FINANCIAL BACKROUND ....I HAVE WORKED FOR OVER 20 YEARS ON WALL STREET AS A FINANCIAL ADVISOR TO SMALL INSTITUTIONS AND WEALTHY FAMILIES....PRIMARILY IN THE AREA OF BONDS.

THE TOPICS OF DISCUSSION AT THE CANDIDATES FORUM THIS PAST WEEKEND WERE, TO NAME A FEW,

A 20%+ TAX INCREASE
$5 MILLION BOND ISSUE
A 2 1/2% HOME SALE TAX (FLIP TAX)...PLEASE NOTE: ALL INCUMBENTS ARE PROUDLY AND STRONGLY IN FAVOR OF THIS...I AM NOT A PROPOSED SELF INSURANCE OF CERTAIN LIABILITIES THE CANCELLATION OF THE SALTAIRE FERRY CONTRACT THE PROPOSED NEW FIRE TRUCK A NEW MARINA COMPLEX

FELLOW SALTAIRIANS - ADD THESE ALL TOGETHER AND WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF MONEY !!!

I BELIEVE SALTAIRE NEEDS TO GET BACK TO BASICS:

THE BASICS OF FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY
THE BASICS OF ACCOUNTABILITY TO SALTAIRE VOTERS AND TAXPAYERS THE BASICS OF COMPLETING JOBS ON TIME AND ON BUDGET IN ESSENCE, COMMON SENSE ALLOCATION OF OUR RESOURCES

I LIKE TO THINK OF SALTAIRE AS A TIGHTLY KNIT COMMUNITY. (I CAME TO SALTAIRE WITH MY PARENTS IN 1969, AND LOVE IT SO MUCH THAT MY WIFE AND I BOUGHT THE FAMILY HOME AND LIVE HERE WITH OUR 3 CHILDREN) WE CAN'T LET MONEY BE A DIVISIVE FACTOR IN THE SALTAIRE "FAMILY" - AND WE ALSO CAN'T WALK AWAY FROM OUR DUTY TO PRESERVE WHAT WE LOVE MOST ABOUT SALTAIRE.

I HAVE SPOKEN TO MOST ALL REGISTERED VOTERS OVER THE PAST WEEKS, AND HAVE LEARNED THAT MANY OF YOU ARE AS CONCERNED AS I AM ABOUT THESE ISSUES. MY FINACIAL BACKROUND, AND LOVE FOR SALTAIRE AND MY INTEREST IN REPRESENTING ALL CONSTITUENTS MAKE ME UNIQUELY QUALIFIED FOR THE TRUSTEE POSITION.

I ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT THIS FRIDAY.

THANK YOU
