Editor:
I moved to Madeira Beach from Connecticut a little over two years ago. As a long-time member of the League of Women Voters, I have an interest in good government. Since Iím retired, I had time to observe our city commission and other boards in action. It took a while for me to recognize the undue influence of special interests, the cronyism, the conflicts of interest and the questionable ethics of some of the members of our governing boards.

My concern now is that new residents of our city may be unaware, as I was, of what has been going on politically before their arrival, and may be convinced to select candidates who either were soundly rejected in March 2004 and/or who were motivated by self-interests while in office. I strongly urge new voters to ask their neighbors about Madeira Beach political history. Be sure to ask questions of the candidates coming to your door about how their actions or inaction when they were in a position of authority, may have led to the granting of numerous variances to developers.

We now have buildings which are a blot on our landscape including the Hubbard Parking Garage and the soon-to-be-built massive Skyline project on Gulf Boulevard and 140th Avenue. Please take the time to become informed and vote on March 8.
