Residents who are paying an assessment to the Coral Springs Improvement District have an important issue on this November’s ballot.

I’ve been working hard to share information and my personal endorsement of a “yes” vote on the Coral Springs Improvement District (CSID) ballot question. For those of you that voted yes, I thank you. For those of you that voted no, I still thank you because you exercised your constitutional rights and voted. 

In this current winner-takes-all, polarizing political climate, we have lost the ability to agree to disagree. That’s the beauty of our diverse communities, state, and country, but it requires us to have tough conversations and work together to move all of us forward.

Voting yes on the ballot question concerning CSID will add two more board members, give everyone equal voting power in the district, and force board members to actively go out and speak to people living in the district.

The CSID operates a $20 million dollar budget, and I think it’s important that everyone paying an assessment to the district should all be on the same playing field. 

So for those residents who live in the Coral Springs Improvement District, when you go to vote, be sure to vote all the way down the ballot.

One of the last items you will be asked to vote on is the Coral Springs Improvement District. Vote Yes on that item.
