A CALL TO ACTION!

Petition Drive – Let’s Vote On It!

Thanks to a group a concerned citizens we now have an opportunity to determine the future use of City owned land, our land.

Specifically, the group is seeking to place on the upcoming August ballot a City Ordinance that would limit usage of land owned by the City of Boca Raton adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway.  The common sense limitations are “public recreation, public boating access, public streets and city stormwater uses only.”  This is a worthy initiative intended to preserve the land for citizen’s best use.

In order for the issue to come to a vote, a successful petition drive is required. Only City of Boca Raton registered voters are eligible to sign the petition.  The well organized group of volunteers has announced they need as many signatures as possible and will make the petition available at the following times and locations for your convenience:Unknown-1

Nancy and James Hendrey arrived in Boca Raton 32 years ago as IBMers. From Hawaii to Dallas to Atlanta and Boca, for them, IBM meant "I've Been Moved". In 1988 they chose to leave IBM management and take an employee "buyout" and start their own business. Twenty-five years later they chose to retire and stay in place. "With our previous experience as teachers, sales professionals, product developers, advertising managers, small business owners and real estate developers, we both have unspent energy, especially when it comes to protecting the city we love."
