Like wolves howling at the moon, we, the residents, have changed the course of government in the city of Boca Raton. Residents have actually won! With the election victories of Council members Andrea Levine O’Rourke and Monica Mayotte, the ‘resident friendly’ voice can no longer be discounted; no longer disrespected. Tone and temperament in City Hall has changed…but…do not be fooled! Residents must continue to ‘howl’. The ‘moon’ should never forget that we, the residents, demand our voice be heard; that we, the residents, are here…
However, what also must change, is that along with ‘howling’, we, the residents must offer practical solution in the public discussion and discourse. Residents are not the problem; residents are the solution. Good governance begins and ends with informed and engaged residents.
