Update for late August

Work and life have been demanding this month.  I'm on the road right now, staying with my brother who broke a hip this month.  So I haven't been updating nearly as often as I should.   

But much has happened in North Bay Village.   

For one, David Richardson won for State Rep.  This is good news for North Bay Village.  Of the three major candidates for the position, he was the only one to demonstrate that it was about more than Miami Beach.  He came to our budget meetings, has looked at our issues such as the Causeway and the state, and paid attention.  

In an odd political moment, the mayor and I both enthusiastically supported the same candidate.  It will mean good things for our city.  

In our own elections, Connie Leon Kreps is unopposed for mayor so she will retain that office and Richard Chervony is unopposed for North Bay Island, so he will retain that office.  

The two seats in play are:

Treasure Island - Wendy Duvall is up against Stuart Blumberg.  
At Large - Mario Garcia is up against Jorge Gonzalez.   

This election will more than anything be about retaining Dennis Kelly, the current city manager.   I've written about that before.   There's a lot to say on the subject but I have not had the chance to talk with some of the candidates on that.  I'll write more when I get home.
