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. In your segment on resident friendly vs. resident unfriendly, you overlooked an early major victory by a citizen group (Keep Your Boca Beaches Public. org). After a 3-year contentious fight with the City Council, after this citizen group won several court challenges, the City Council was faced with three options:
    1- Continue the legal challenge in the Florida State Supreme Court.
    2- Have a City-wide referendum to resolve the issue.
    3- Vote to approve an ordinance adhering to the language of the citizen’s petition.
    The City Council wisely chose to approve Ordinance 5228 on Feb. 12, 2013. Ord.5228 mandated that all public-owned lands on the Barrier Island shall be limited to public uses and public services and specifically prohited development for private uses. If this language sounds similar to the Wildflower initiative, that’s because it was drafted by the same attorney.
