SARA BAXTER A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE FOR
PALM BEACH COUNTY
UNCHECKED LOCAL POWER
Small business owners should not have to beg County Commissioners to be open for business. The middle class and small businesses are the backbone of our local economy. Over the last two years, Sara Baxter watched our county commission become an echo chamber, repeating and agreeing with each other about bad ideas. She firmly believes that Palm Beach County needs a commission that is representative of our entire county, including small business owners. This became evident while watching the board of county commissioner (BCC) meetings and their part in the decision making process regarding small business operations. Our county's commissioners lack the understanding and experience of growing a small business so they are unable to comprehend how harmful their regulations, fees and taxes are on citizens trying to start a small business. Some of the policies and restrictions they impose on small businesses are often more harmful than good. Palm Beach county's policies are preventing the growth of new small businesses, which help create jobs.
Reinvesting in skilled labor and technical school programs would help residence and help our community. With local vocational schools almost nonexistent in Palm Beach County our future labor force is at risk. These programs help create skilled labor that could possibly lead to future small businesses.
True advocacy is born of experience.
Have you ever wondered why we have a commission of 7 individuals making all the policies, instead of one person, like a king? It is for the purpose of having opposing views and diverse opinions that serve our county's best interest. When we lack the ability to disagree on a subject matter, we are missing out on the fundamental purpose of having a commission.
We the people need a different voice on our county commission. Not the same echo chamber that currently exists. When deciding on programs which projects get funding we need the perspective of someone who has been active in the community and realizes most residence are struggling with high gas prices, expensive groceries, and increased energy bills. When deciding budgets for upcoming fiscal years we need someone that knows how to balance a budget and relocate funds instead of raising taxes to cover costs of new projects.
At a time when residence are struggling to pay for groceries, the county should be looking at ways to help reduce some of their costs but instead they are trying to pass a bond (on the November ballot) for $200 million dollars. If this passes it would increase every home owner's property taxes.
PRO COMMON SENSE AND A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE
LESS POLITICAL EXPERIENCE & MORE PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE
Small business owners, healthcare workers, teachers, and Realtor's have a unique perspective on how hard work can make a difference in the lives of residents. Sara has these experiences and will be the best representative for the residence of Palm Beach County's District 6.
Small business owners have the experience to understand that if they do not work hard , they will not be able to make their customers happy and earn a living.
Healthcare workers guide their patient's health outcomes. They help determine a patients medical treatments and quality of life outcomes.
Teachers have experience in understanding the influence they have over young minds. What teachers teach children will set them up for success or failure in their future.
Realtors understand the value of working hard. When a lot of people are relaxing they're working nights and weekends to he help families find their dream home. They do not get paid days off.
Working hard and giving back to the community is the experience that matters. Life experience's give the best perspective to represent the citizens of Palm Beach County. We currently have plenty of commissioners with political experience. What we need is someone with all the other experiences.
Hard work is the best path to success.
