To the editor:
On March 11, we on Fort Myers Beach have a very important election. We will elect three people who will face some very important issues.
For change to be of any value, it needs to be lasting and consistent. The only consistencies in the past few Town Councils have been their inconsistencies.
Talking with my neighbors and friends, many have become apathetic towards our town government. That says a lot about the state of things here.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality, and that is exactly what we need right now on FMB -leadership! In my opinion, the person for the job is Anita Cereceda.
Anita has served on the Town Council before (some 18 years ago). Since then Anita has also become a business and homeowner. I have known Anita for seven years, and know her to be fair and open-minded. Her dedication to the beach is apparent if you know her.
Leadership requires integrity, a"sticktoitiveness" approach to problem solving, the ability to delegate and follow up and the capacity to follow through. Anita has these leadership qualities and then some. Fort Myers Beach needs Anita back on the Town Council!
As I first stated: "For changes to be of any value, they've got to be lasting and consistent." And: "Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality."
Let's all remember this when we go to the polls on March 11!
