Congratulations Boca Watch
In every community only a few people take an interest in what is going on. Boca Raton is no different. However, thanks to the Internet and Boca Watch, our community is beginning to take notice in a big way. Only 7,500 or so people voted in the last City election. Your having 10,000 followers is truly significant.
What do the numbers say? One thing for sure, people are tired of being left out of the process. Our beautiful city is growing in an obscene way with huge, ugly concrete buildings with no aesthetic beauty. They see unbridled traffic on many streets and gridlock becoming more frequent. They learn the construction and traffic we see now is just 40% of what is on the books and scheduled to be built in the near future. Citizens are made to feel City government does not work for them. They experience a City that works for a few developers and property owners turning a deaf ear to those that elect and pay for a system that actively works against them.
Thank you Boca Watch, Boca Watchers, Boca Beautiful and Save Our Beaches for making the huge and expensive effort to engage our neighbors – our community. Boca Raton is ours to lose if we do not become active and let our voices be heard.
