To the editor:
Do you know that two of the candidates don't own homes or pay Cape Coral property taxes? Do you know one of the candidates has only lived here for three years? How does this person know anything about Cape Coral except for coaching that others have provided?
Do you know what kind of background these candidates have, or were they come from ?
Do you know that the last couple of mayors that were elected to office in Cape Coral had less than six years living here and ended up as only one-term mayors?
Do you know that the Cape has been idle for almost five years?
Do you know if you re-elect a mayor who has a proven track record of not getting along with the present council, you're electing a lame duck, and again not moving forward for another four years?
Once you know all this, why not elect a man with a proven track record, home owner, taxpayer, who has lived here for 27 years, a family man with two kids and two grandchildren who were born and raised here in Cape Coral? Former business owner, now a Realtor and consultant, a two-term council member who proved he can work with others and move Cape Coral forward again. A man who has worked on $1.1 billion budgets and knows how to cut out unnecessary spending. A man that can step into the job and doesn't need a learning period to do the job necessary to get us "back on track." A man who will be a great Ambassador for our city and bring some "common sense governing" to the Cape. If you have met or talked with AJ, then you will know he speaks from the heart, he really loves Cape Coral and the people who live here.
With all that being said, if you have lived here for 10, 15 or 20 years, you probably have either met AJ or at least heard his name. With your help we can elect AJ Boyd for Mayor and put Pride back into Paradise. AJ Boyd as your mayor, will move this city forward. AJ will bring new jobs and he is already working on it. Ask him about his Google connection? When we look to fill top positions in the Cape we look for the most experienced, most knowledgeable, and the best person to fill that position. AJ Boyd is the right person for that position. Please vote AJ Boyd for mayor of Cape Coral.
Thank you very much for your consideration of my son AJ for Cape Coral mayor.
Beverly Boyd, a 28 year resident
