Addie Greene’s bid for downward mobility and other municipal elections highlightsby George Bennett | February 9th, 2011
Adams, the nation’s sixth president, lost his reelection bid in 1828. He then took a few steps down the political ladder and served in the House of Representatives from 1831 to 1848.Greene, who served on the Mangonia Park town council in the late 1980s and early 1990s, went on to the state House from 1992 to 2000, then served on the county commission from 2000 to 2009, when she cited health concerns and retired.
Now Greene wants to go from multibillion-dollar county budgets and megadeals like luring The Scripps Research Institute to a seat on the Mangonia Park town council, where pressing issues include complaints about smoke from a popular barbecue stand.
The Mangonia Park race between Greene and council incumbent Mark Trueblood was one of several set Tuesday when most of Palm Beach County’s cities and towns finalized their ballots for the March 8 municipal elections.
