Lake Worth Candidates Environmental Forum

The forum will be held on October 1st, 2009 from 6:30 - 8:00 PM at the Organic Music Café on the SE corner of 4th Ave North and Dixie Hwy in Lake Worth.

The city's election will take place on November 3rd.

As many know, Lake Worth has become known across the State, and even around the Country, for its stance on the environment, social responsibility and quality of life issues. This city has become a battleground over issues of both local and global significance, including:

-Coastal development and beach access
-Protecting public parks
-Preserving near-shore reefs
-Democratic participation in comprehensive planning
-Local control and of services (water, power, police, etc)
-Accountability and ethics from pubic officials
-Rights of immigrant residents
-Addressing climate change

We expect these topics, as well as others, to be discussed on Oct 1.
Please spread this invitation to your friends, family and supporters.

The forum will be hosted by the Palm Beach County Environmental Coalition (PBCEC). PBCEC is a coalition of local environmental groups and activists that meet locally every month in Lake Worth to network and organize around improving the planet we share.

We are inviting all the candidates running for the upcoming Lake Worth city elections. All candidates will have the opportunity to address important issues and answer questions from the public.

For a Greener Lake Worth,
Palm Beach County Environmental Coalition
