For the past 20 years in Florida, I have developed deep roots in the Southwest Florida communities I have served. Working as a healthcare administrator, college instructor, social worker, salesman and volunteer, I learned the importance we all play in serving one another to the betterment of our community. Through my service with organizations like the Horizon Council, Chamber of Commerce, Habitat for Humanity, Harry Chapin Food Bank, The Café of Life, and Lions Club, I have rolled up my sleeves and fought for those who have been allowed to fall through the cracks in our society.
The Lee County Board of Commissioners have failed the people they took an oath to serve by giving free reign to developers, mining, drilling and special interest groups. As a result of their dereliction of duty, I am dismayed by the loss of the small-town feel our individual communities once had. We now see them being swallowed up in the sprawling reaches of cloistered compounds, strip malls, car lots, inter-connected by a quagmire of traffic.
We need to nurture the elements that brought us here in the first place: a retirement haven and place to raise a family with decent, well-supported schools, a top-notch healthcare system, a bustling business-friendly environment, with social supports for our most at risk.
A place of beauty with pristine beaches, nature preserves( free of traffic noise ), abundant fishing, and waterways teeming with life. Cypress sloughs and great oak hammocks, worthy of Clyde Butcher’s camera lens. We can encourage growth through proper planning, focusing on in-fill utilizing existing infrastructure, allowing multi-purpose zoning and inclusion of affordable and workforce housing for new grads and future families.
Our diversity is our strength. From indigenous tribes to pioneering cracker settlers, from Yankee carpetbaggers to Confederate defenders, from our snowbirds from the North to our immigrants from the South, we can all come together and make Lee county a safe, flourishing, sustainable environment to be enjoyed by all.
