The Changing Winds are Blowing in Coral Springs

As a resident of this City for nearly 15 years, I decided this election cycle to take a backseat from my usual public support of candidates and watch the bloodbath take its toll on residents and business owners who just seemed so very tired of the politics as usual that the Coral Springs Commission has been spouting for the last few years.
