March 10, 2014

City Elections for Boca Raton are Extremely Important for a Healthy and Vibrant Down Town. Vote Tuesday, March 11, 2014. Here are our Picks for this Election Cycle. Historically, these elections have attracted around 12% of the eligible voters in our community, not unusual for mid-term election cycles.

Voter apathy can create a void in leadership. Perpetuation of candidates who have failed to address the major financial issue facing the City: police and firefighter pension plans that are in dire need of change to preserve the financial future and quality of life in Boca Raton, are good reasons to Vote !

Susan Haynie, the Sun Sentinel recommends her for this post, due to her seasoning and experience in public office, and to her measured and sensible approach to solving the city’s problems. Haynie, 58, is a businesswoman, licensed general contractor and 42-year resident of Boca Raton who has served on the city council for 12 years. Growth in the urban core, and its associated traffic problems, is one of the two issues dominating the discussion in the 2014 municipal election.

Susan Haynie holds a reputation for being pro-development, but it’s clear she advocates a reasoned, gradual approach to future construction, one that acknowledges the need for increased urban density as a guarantor of civic viability. For example, one of her solutions for easing traffic congestion includes transit-oriented residential and commercial development around future rail stations, which would help generate enough ridership and tax revenues to relieve pressures on the public purse.


Michael Mullaugh was first appointed in 2008 to fill vacated Council Seat B, and was elected without opposition in 2011 for a three-year term. The Sun Sentinel gives its Recommendation to Mullaugh. On his first time actually running an election campaign, Mullaugh brings experience and discipline to the race. A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Michael moved to Boca in 1997. A lawyer by training, for many years he worked for a bank in the trusts and estates department. With a background in finance, one of the main things Mullaugh has brought to the city council is a disciplined approach on how to manage the city’s revenue: “When things started going badly with the budget in 2008 and some members wanted to invade the city reserves, I said that was not the right thing to do; instead I advised the city manager and administration to do some budget cuts, wherever possible, without invading the reserves.” When things got better and the city’s revenue increased, they had not invaded the reserves, thanks to Michael’s advice and the group’s effort to ensure discipline.


Robert Weinroth: Boca Raton City Counsel, Seat D. The Sun Sentinel recommends lawyer Robert Weinroth, 61, who has run previously for Palm Beach County Property Appraiser. He favors "intelligent development" in the central business district, and urges that all stakeholders, developers, neighborhoods and the city, improve communication by coming together for some "give-and-take." He expresses similarly accommodating views on the pension issue: actuaries representing the various parties should meet and hash things out, and the council should listen.

PharmacoGenetic Screening: Having been trained in Molecular Biology & BioChemist, I have an avid interest in PharmacoGenetics DNA Screening.

Last year 2.2 million patients taking properly prescribed FDA Approved Drugs have experienced Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR); of those millions, 770,000 experienced an avoidable ADR requiring Hospitalization, and 100,000 of those patients the ADRs resulted in fatalities, more than triple the number of Highway deaths in the USA. Genomic DNA Testing done once in your Lifetime, will give Physicians valuable information guiding them in prescribed FDA Approved medications taking into account the patients unique genetic profile.

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release April, 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, (I sold my iPad 4 to Gazelle.com) applied the proceeds to purchase the "mini" with 128GB of Storage, AT&T connectivity, plus added Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover, and an ACME MADE San Francisco rubberized thin slip-over protective case. This thin package actually fits into my trousers pocket.
