Linda Gausten SHOWS WHY WE NEED
AN EMERGENCY FUND
COMMENTARY BY: LINDA GAUSTEN
FACT: Earlier this month, the city council voted 4 to 1 against a proposal to take money from our City’s Contingency
(Emergency) fund to pay down toxic debt. Jeff Bremer, the former city manager, the city’s financial department, and
the city’s paid financial advisor, all recommended that the city should NOT approve this proposal. The City’s Financial
Advisor’s report stated “we do not believe that the Mayor’s Revised Budget Plan fulfills the City’s Strategic Plan to act in a
financially responsible manner due to the potential risk of a credit downgrade. We believe the negative impact of a 22%
reduction in the City’s fund balance position will more than offset any potential benefit of a less than 1% reduction in the
City’s outstanding debt position. In addition, we believe that the savings outlined in the Mayor’s Revised budget plan are
overstated.” To the credit of the council, they heeded the collective financial experts’ recommendations and voted “no”. This
is a good example of what it means to make an informed decision. Because
I am a financial business professional, and understand city-sized finance
and risk control very well, I have been saying the same thing the advisors
recommended for months. My position has been very clear on this subject –
Hurricane Matthew is a good example of why we need a solid emergency fund.
Matthew was due to slam into Port St. Lucie Thursday night, but made a last
minute turn further east saving the city from the severe damage we were all
expecting, we are extremely lucky this time. But, it is clear we must never rely
on luck in the future, and should anticipate and be ready for future storms. The
City must be prepared financially to face the day when our luck will eventually
run out - after this Devine gift of a warning tap on the shoulder, to do otherwise, would be reckless.
At the Candidate’s Forum held in Sandpiper Bay, on October 3rd, my opponent said that he believes depleting our emergency
fund to pay down debt is a good idea. He felt there was too much money in it already. Apparently, my opponent feels he
knows more than the City’s Manager, the City’s Financial staff, and paid Financial Advisor - the experts.
Vice Mayor, Linda Bartz, who was a bank Vice President and understands financial risk control, and myself, with a background
in financial management, economics, and risk control, both agree that using the contingency fund at this time to pay down
debt, is fraught with high financial risk to the city. Not only would it deplete our funds during an emergency, but it would
also negatively impact our City’s credit rating. I would love to pay down our debt, but not at the expense of our City’s first
priority, the protection of the 180,000 city residents that depend on it for their safety and well-being.
The two opposing positions between financial professionals, including myself, on one side, and my opponent, an Elementary
School Principal, on the other, clearly highlights that he does not understand the ramifications of his uninformed statements
due to an obvious lack of financial understanding, or that he merely says what he thinks will get him elected.
This city deserves a representative who has the qualifications to make informed decisions on behalf of our residents that
are in the best interests of the City. Port St. Lucie cannot risk having my opponent on the council, who has shown that he
will shoot from the hip instead of considering expert advice and the facts.
That’s why I humbly ask for your vote.

This deal from Steve Conrad of Manhasset, New York, is a good defensive lesson.

In a pair event, North-South pushed into four spades. Given the vulnerability, East

cost for East to play low. Then, West would have taken the trick, and the contract
would have gone down.
However, East won with his heart king. Now, if he had continued with his low heart (or
a diamond, conceding a useless ruff-and-sluff), the contract would still have failed.
But he cashed the heart ace, squashing his partner’s queen. Keep counting.
