Jeri Muoio for Mayor

With the Mayoral election just 30 days away I’d like to take a minute to reiterate my support for Jeri Muoio for Mayor of West Palm Beach.

Most of you, readers of, my fellow twitterers & facebook friends, are locals – people with families who live, work, and play in West Palm Beach. We enjoy the cuisine of local restaurants, we meet at the Green Market and enjoy the free concerts at Clematis by Night and Sunday at the Waterfront. Our parks that we spend so much time in are maintained by the city. The fate of our neighborhoods and local businesses are determined by the decisions which are made at City Hall and the actions of people who are appointed to their positions by the Mayor.

I do not usually like to get into politics, but the changes that a new Mayor will bring affect me and my community so intensely that I feel it is my responsibility to urge everyone I interact with to engage themselves in the upcoming elections and vote for a candidate who represents them.

My candidate is Jeri Muoio.

Over the last few years, our infrastructure has been improved and our city has been beautified. Now it’s time to focus on the people and small businesses who will ultimately bring long lasting prosperity to not just downtown, but the whole West Palm Beach area.

It is my firm belief that the person to move us forward needs to be someone who understands and connects directly with the people of West Palm Beach, someone who is not indebted to a single group and someone who is not encumbered with personal business relationships which inherently conflict with the responsibilities of a Mayor.

Jeri has a clear vision for the future of West Palm Beach, which has been demonstrated through the clear and substantive answers that she gave in the last four mayoral debates. Jeri looks forward. Jeri understands how the city of West Palm Beach runs and is fully focused on what we need to do to take this city from it’s infancy as a “big little city” to a robust and flourishing city in which we the people of West Palm Beach and our local businesses will thrive.

On March 8th, please join me in voting for Jeri Muoio.

Thank you for your time,

Aaron “aGuyonClematis” Wormus

  1. Question – What is her position on employee layoff’s?

    I also would like to know her opinion of the Parks & Recreation Department. Does she support them and recognize the important benefits and services provided by those dedicated professionals, to citizens of and visitors of the city of West Palm Beach?

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT – A sense of COMMUNITY…It Starts In Parks
    What transforms a crowd into a community? A chance for people to connect. Parks provide that chance. Florida’s parks are where lifetime friendships are formed, where the gap between generations is bridged, where people discover what they have in common. How do you grow a hometown with a sense of community? It starts in parks!

  2. Thanks for the question Vicki, I forwarded it on to Jeri & this is the response that I got.

    I am very supportive of the parks and recreation department and the work that they do. I know that when businesses look at locating in a city, one of the things they consider is available recreational activities. That being said, I am afraid that we will have to eliminate positions.

    I will start with not filling those positions that are already vacant, I will also look to cutting the salaries of the top administrators and cutting into the budgets of the 2 biggest departments.

    Only after all of that has been accomplished will I consider laying off employees. We have to cut 10 million dollars out of our budget this year after having already cut 30 million over the last 2 years. It will be difficult.
