Though BocaWatch commentator Jack McWalter is relived the election is behind us, he does have a few predictions for 2017-2018. Despite a tough race, he feels Boca Raton residents are lucky to have a pretty solid line-up of City Council members, especially when compared to other cities.

Born and raised in Chicago and a graduate of Loyola University. I went on to study at Chicago Kent Law, part of Illinois Institute of Technology, but stopped short to serve in the US Army for 3 years. Moved to Boca Raton with my family 35 years ago and began a 32 year career with IBM as Sales Executive and Business Director Manager with the Manufacturing Technology Center - now the Don Estridge School. Volunteering is in my blood, I especially enjoy working to raise money for children with special needs at the Jewish Community Center and look back fondly on the years spent coaching soccer and supporting Boca Jets football. My two children attended Addison Mizner, St Andrew's, Boca High, and are both graduates of University of Florida. If I sound like a fighter I am, beat cancer three times and I support all survivors who face that same challenge.


  1. sounds quite optimistic and I hope everyone works together and doesn’t end up like Delray City Council…
    great job done by all the candidates… good luck to all the elected officials!
