An Open Letter to BocaWatch Readers from Mayoral Candidate Al Zucaro

5

This coming Tuesday, March 14, voters have a clear choice at the ballot box for mayor: three more years of the same person who got us into this mess, or a new mayor who will be a strong independent voice, a common sense problem solver, and a champion for ignored residents.

I decided to run for mayor with the “radical agenda” to fix our traffic problems, create a responsible plan to combat overdevelopment, and to bring common sense back to city hall. Our movement started when we stood together on the Wildflower referendum in November.

My opponent and her Tallahassee friends have spent countless amounts on TV and in our mailboxes attacking my character. When I launched my campaign, I said developers would call me the boogeyman. And they did—literally.

Are they really so desperate that they would rather trash my name then have a serious discussion on the issues? They are trying to scare residents into voting for the status quo, but we won’t buy it.

I am proud of my record. As an attorney, I stood up for people without a voice, and that’s exactly why I got into this race. It’s simple: let’s bring people together and get city hall back on track.

My opponent, the media, and PACs in Tallahassee want you to think that simply because I am a political outsider, I am not qualified to be your mayor.

I can’t wait to prove them wrong.

I’ve never said I was perfect—because I’m not. But, like you, I am a resident with a voice—and I will not rest until we are all heard. We made our voices heard in November. Let’s do it again.

For too long developers have called the shots in city hall.

That ends on March 14.

Let’s turn things around in Boca Raton. Make your voice heard this Tuesday, March 14—and I promise that if you trust me with your vote, I will always fight for you and for what’s right.

I won’t let you down.

  1. PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID DRAIN THE SWAMP, WELL WE COULD START DRAINING THE SWAMP AT CITY HALL BY VOTING MAYOR HAYNIE OUT OF OFFICE. SHE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A TRAFFIC EXPERT, WELL I ASK AGAIN WHERE WILL ALL THE TRAFFIC GOING TO GO WHEN ALL THE PEOPLE LEAVE FOR WORK OR COME HOME FROM WORK. YOU CANNOT WIDEN FEDERAL HIGHWAY.

  2. I certainly hope that Zucaro’s “draining the swamp” would be a heck of a lot better than what Trump has done. Trump appointed Wall Street billionaires to his cabinet, and is supporting “TrumpCare”, a health care plan that would harm the middle class but benefit the extremely wealthy. So comparison’s aside, I agree that Haynie MUST GO.

  3. The Mayor has a list of serious ethical questions she is trying to laugh away. They
    Aren’t funny.. there serious. Harvest and she is without answers.
    One has to wonder why she fought so hard to get a job that paid so little. Silly me… it seems to have paid more than we thought.
    It is simply time for a change.

  5. I really wanted to sip a lemonade at the ICW in my seat at the new Houston’s (flagship Hillstone) on Palmetto. And all the people whose home values skyrocketed because of the development thus far, I’d have thought they’d want to throw a couple back there, too, plus, more development will increase their home values more. traffic is what it is, won’t get much worse, same w parking, horse is out of the barn so what can you do? Scream bloody murder amd bring Mr. Zucaro and Ms. O’Rourke in, neither of whom are qualified to run the city and all that entails. Mr. Zucaro has real kahunas marrying into Boca and running for its highest office after doing zero in or for the city. In fact, he’s a tool of the east residents who can’t get anyone to run for mayor. No different than Ms. Haynie. Both special interests. That’s the USA.

    Vote Haynie amd Thompson.
