Let me thank you again for all the support that you have shown for the work of Save Vanderbilt Beach. I want to specifically thank the Pelican Bay Property Owners Association, the Naples Park Association, the Regatta, the Trieste, and the Vanderbilt Beach Residents Association for all their work and support.
As you know, on March 1, 2021, the Board of County Commissioners voted 4-1 to approve Stock’s plans as they were finally submitted.
We have a deep interest in seeing that Stock follows all the rules and commitments to which he has agreed. We want to be certain that he does as he said he would and that the County cuts him no undue slack.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, SVB is not alone in having continuing work to do. You have a job as well. We have seen how four of the five County Commissioners ran roughshod over the desires of their constituents and the whole community in approving this project. As we have stated, this approval is a watershed event, and ensures that developers will continue to have their way over the wishes of voters and taxpayers.
NOW, IT’S UP TO ALL OF US TO FOLLOW THE NEXT SEVERAL ELECTION CYCLES AND REPLACE THOSE COMMISSIONERS WHO VOTED IN FAVOR OF THIS PROJECT.
THE PRIMARY FOR THE CURRENT ELECTION CYCLE TAKES PLACE AUGUST 23, 2022. (More about this below.) ANDY SOLIS, THE DISTRICT 2 COMMISSIONER (WHERE ONE NAPLES IS LOCATED) HAS DECIDED NOT TO RUN AGAIN. IS IT ANY WONDER AFTER HE SO BLATANTLY IGNORED THE WISHES OF THE RESIDENTS OF HIS DIDTRICT?
ONLY ONE CANDIDATE FOR THE VACANT SEAT IS NOT TAKING MONEY FROM SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. SHE IS THE REPUBLICAN, NANCY LEWIS, AND SHE NEEDS ALL OF OUR SUPPORT. (More about Nancy below.)
COMMISSIONER PENNY TAYLOR IN DISTRICT 4 IS RUNNING FOR REELECTION AND WAS THE SINGLE VOTE AGAINST ONE NAPLES. IF YOU ARE IN DISTRICT 4, PLEASE SUPPORT HER.
Let’s make sure that all of us “Remember One Naples!”
Thanks again for everything,
