"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, 11, 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."
