    Do not forget the CS Chamber Political Forum on Oct 21st at the Marriott

      The CS Chamber of Commerce is a joke:

      They’re appointed, accomplish nothing, and always lean towards the incumbents to keep their jobs and justify their existence.

      It should be abolished.

      looking forward to it

    I’m with you — it makes no sense.

    Should the act to vote be a right, privilege or responsibility
    is always up for debate … but it is an act that should not be taken lightly. I
    believe that most Americans feel that the vote is sacrosanct. With this said,
    do we as citizens truly make informed decisions when we enter the polling booth
    on Election Day. With the forum last Tuesday, I was disappointed that in city
    of 120k plus so few voter attended tolearn more about the policies and beliefs
    of the candidates. Were they can make an intelligent decision on Nov 4th
    and elect those who will make Coral Spring a City of Excellence, Hope to see thousand
    at the next forum at the Charter School
