PBC Commission candidate takes issue with county meeting notice

by Jennifer Sorentrue | January 8th, 2014

Palm Beach County Commission candidate Andy Schaller is questioning why county administrators did not notify him about a community forum held Tuesday night to discuss issues facing the central-western part of the county.

Schaller has taken aim at county officials for notifying his opponents about a county-run meeting held late last year to discuss a road project in his neighborhood, Palm Beach Ranchettes.

In an email to county commissioners and administrators Wednesday, Schaller questioned why candidates weren’t also notified of Tuesday’s meeting, which was attended by nearly 200 residents. The proposed 6,500-home Minto West development dominated the discussion at Tuesday’s meeting.

“I did not receive any email correspondence, telephone calls or postal mail to inform me of last night’s Minto Property meeting,” Schaller wrote in the email. “Why was I not given the same notification that other candidates received about the Ranchettes a much smaller project in the district and have far less impact to the entire district?”

Last month, Schaller accused county administrators of trying to block his chances of winning the District 6 race by inappropriately giving his opponents information about a road project that could affect voters in his neighborhood.

County Administrator Bob Weisman has defended the notification, saying possible extension of Lyon Road through the Ranchettes community is a big issue for the district.

Weisman authorized county managers to alert all of the four candidates who have announced they are running for term-limited Commissioner Jess Santamaria’s District 6 seat about a community meeting held last month to discuss the road project.
