CORRECTION: Morgan wins PSL council seat
An article published in the Sept. 9 edition of St. Lucie Voice Stephanie Morgan
erroneously reported that Port St. Lucie District 1 City Council
candidates Stephanie Morgan and John DiMola would be facing
off in the November general election.
Morgan placed first in the three-way race and garnered more
than 50 percent of the votes. In such an instance, the top finisher
automatically wins the seat.
Had Morgan not won with more than 50 percent of the votes
cast, she would have faced DiMola in November.
As it is, Morgan won the District 1 seat in the August primary
and will serve two years on the council, filling out the remainder
of Linda Bartz’s term.

dilemma. How much money should the city put under the mattress,

has a contingency fund. Do we use it to pay off some of our debt, or

First, we establish a formal policy based on general risks like the next

as hurricanes, and a higher than normal level of debt. Right now,
our policy is that we keep two months’ of our general fund operating

spade to dummy’s ace, and led another spade. West cashed her diamond queen to
hold South to 10 tricks. But minus 430 was still a top. Dealer: North; Vulnerable: East-West
