THANK YOU for Your Vote! We're going to November... ...and then we're reclaiming Palm Coast from the Tax & Spenders.
Endorsed by: RRRA Flagler Membership & FL State House District 24 Representative Travis Hutson
"When I hear the word 'unsustainable' what comes to mind is the City of Palm Coast under current management. Spending is unrestrained. Taxes are too high. Home occupancy is too low. Industry has evaporated. Jobs are dismal. Office complexes and shopping centers sit unoccupied. Impact fees and an unfriendly process are unattractive to businesses that might otherwise be inclined to open here.
"From the moment I exited I-95
at old exit 91c on the morning of November 4, 1997, Palm Coast felt
differentfrom every place I had been in my travels through 41
states. There was one part mystery and two parts potential.Many
things have changed in these 16 years, in both good and bad ways. In the most recent years, I have been saddened to see this city's potential being crushed under the weight of unaccountability and poor decisions.
"As a 16 year resident, home owner, business owner, and active member of my community, but more importantly as a mom to four kids ages 10, 12, 14, & 15, I am concerned for the future of Palm Coast as a viable and desirable city for her future generations.
If you are concerned about the future of the City of Palm Coast, I humbly ask for your vote in the 2014 municipal election."

City Waste & Unaccountability
Misuse of Tax Dollars
Building a City Hall after Taxpayers voted 82% against it
Constant landscaping, digging up perfectly good trees and plants to plant new ones
Running city sprinklers when it's raining or too cold
Spending too much money making Palm Coast look like a nice place to live rather than making it a nice place to live
City Council and City Management are deaf to the people who live in Palm Coast
Barriers to Business & Job Growth
Growth Focus is centered on retirement rather than true demographics
Attracting Industry is not given a priority over beautification projects
Unemployment is 3 points higher than state average
Palm Coast needs more than services and retail sales to have a thriving economy
Any semblance of industry that could bring wealth into the community is shunned
