I am seeking your support for another term on the Town Council of Fort Myers Beach. There will be some major decisions made in the next couple of years resulting in the long-term vision of our town. My experience and voice of reason makes me an excellent choice for your vote. While serving as Vice Chair of the Marine Resources Task Force, I initiated and completed a recycling program at all beach accesses where there was previously none. A 20% reduction of the solid waste stream is considered a success. Our recycling program reduced the solid waste stream on the beach by 46%. I’m very proud of my tenure on the Local Planning Agency. The LPA was a great stepping-stone to the town council as it prepared me to hit the ground running. As a new member to the council, it was not necessary for me to take time to get up to speed with the current issues. I am also on the Board of Directors for the Friends of Matanzas Pass Preserve, and am currently the chair of the capital campaign to raise money for a Children’s Education Center.
I am an experienced and known problem-solver with a keen knowledge of the island and its’ needs. I am open minded and forward thinking. Vote Dan Andre for a voice of reason.
