Remarks from the Lewes Homeowners Association Candidates' Forum

This evening, I took part in a candidates' forum presented by the Lewes Homeowners Association.  It was held in the fellowship hall of the Lewes Presbyterian Church. Nice room. Good crowd.

I read my opening remarks. We had just four minutes, and I wanted to hit a number of points. I think I delivered them well.

Wave/Coast Press reporter Rachael Pacella tweeted a picture of the four speakers for the evening (Left to right: Mayor-elect Ted Becker, Rob Morgan, me, and Council-person Bonnie Osler). She caught us all clapping. Politely, of course.

After opening remarks, we took questions from the audience. Topics included:
  • Voter registration in Lewes
  • Parking issues
  • Stormwater problems
  • The new natural gas offerings in town
  • FEMA Flood Insurance rates
  • A plan to hire a planner for Lewes
  • The update of the Lewes Comprehensive Plan
  • The noise ordinance and outdoor speakers
  • Affordable housing
It was a good discussion.
