  1. I am looking for insight into the positions of our mayor/city council members (current and candidates) relative to key issues such as where did they stand on the Intercoastal referendum and on the solar item and the exception to code items on the rampant overbuilding in the downtown area as well as expanding the boundaries of the city. I asked Scott Singer about these items at length but he seemed non committal on most of the items. I also perceive that Andrea o’Rourke is sympathetic to the views of Boca Watch. However the supporters of Emily Gentile raise a HUGE RED FLAG to me.
