I am a fresh face with fresh ideas. Don’t think for one minute that because I am new that I don’t know
about this city. I made it my business to learn everything I can about its history and how it grew over the
years. I’ve done an in depth study of the city’s financial reports for the past ten years. I know what got
us into this mess. But, what happened in the past is behind us – how we deal with our problems going
forward will determine the success or failure of our city. I’m asking you to hire me, a financial professional,
to help heal our fiscal health.
As a non-politician, I am not beholding to any old buddies, political PAC’s, special
interests or political pressure. The only special interest group I care about are all
the residents of our City. The only donors to my campaign are individuals, some
family and long time friends donated to my primary race; the vast majority of my
donors are grass root supporters who live in Port St. Lucie.
Almost 300 people proudly put my signs on their lawns because they know I am
the grassroots candidate who will represent them, and not special interest groups.
I chose Port St. Lucie as my home and I brought with me two suitcases full of 34 years’ experience as
a financial executive, knowledge, and training, to help our city fix our problems and help turn this city’s
finances around, so that over time, we will become one of the most fiscally sound cities in Florida. That is
my goal and I am passionate about it. There’s no magic bullet. It will take hard work and determination,
but it can be done.
I believe that a city with over 180,000 residents and over 1,000 employees
needs a councilperson who will give Port St. Lucie the time and energy
it deserves. That is why I made the pledge to all the residents of Port
St. Lucie to not take any other form of employment while working on the
Council. Port St. Lucie needs full time focus. I will not short-change this
city. My opponent has a full time job in Palm Beach County which he
intends to continue.

St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections announces Parks Edge POA Clubhouse will serve as the newest early voting
location for the upcoming General Election.
“We are very excited to offer the convenience of early voting to this area of Port St. Lucie. It has been an exhaustive search
that began last fall for a facility in the fastest growing and the most underserved area when it comes to early voting, Walker
said. It is very difficult to find a large building that is not already committed for use and available for (14) consecutive days.
It is our hope that this facility will serve Tradition, Gatlin Blvd., Becker Rd. corridors and ease the usually overcrowded early
voting site at Port St. Lucie Community Center. This new location is the 5th early voting site for the county. Early voting has
begun and will end on Sunday, November 6th.

IN WHICH SUIT DO YOU TRY FOR GAME? J 10 9 7
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist K85
Greg Norman said, “Setting goals for your game is an art. The trick is in setting them K94
at the right level, neither too low nor too high.”
When trying to get to game in a major after partner has raised your one-of-a-major
opening to two, you must move with a hand at the right level ... strength. You should WEST EAST
have six losers. Also, if you rebid three of a minor, you may do that with only a three- 64
card suit because it is forcing to three of your major. AJ74 5
In this week’s deal, note that South’s hand has six losers: one heart, two diamonds J 10 8 3 Q 10 9 3 2
and three clubs. When opener has a choice of suits, he should, strange as it sounds,
bid his weaker minor. Here, South should rebid three clubs. Opposite that, North has 10 8 6 3
the worst possible club holding: three low. So he signs off in three spades.
West leads the club jack. East takes three tricks in the suit, then exits safely with a
spade. How should South proceed after drawing trumps? SOUTH
Declarer can afford only one more loser. His two main chances to get home are the AKQ832
heart ace with West or the diamond queen with East. Which should he try first?
The rule is: Play initially the suit with the higher missing card; here, hearts. South
leads his heart toward dummy’s king. When West has the ace, the king sets up for a AJ7
diamond discard. But if East had the heart ace, the diamond finesse would still be on
the back burner. 954
Finally, note that if South had rebid three diamonds, North might have jumped to the Dealer: South; Vulnerable: East-West
hopeless four-spade contract.
