From the Desk of the Mayor
Fellow Citizens, Hard to believe that Spring is here! It must be with the emergence of unwanted weeds and the influx of bikers, beachgoers, surfboards, and tourists. I don’t know about you but, I’m ready for a little warm weather and some outdoor activities. It is this time of year that I also have the terrible duty to remind you that now is the time to begin to make your preparations for Hurricane Season. It will be here in 92 days, but who is counting, especially for a season only Jim Cantore enjoys! Seriously, it is time to begin planning your escape timing and routes, gathering the appropriate number of needed medicines and supplies that could carry you through an evacuation and return trip home if the need arises. I hope these messages are in vain, but we
have been very fortunate in the past few years, who knows how long our fortune will last?
On another note, it is an election year! No one enjoys politics and elections more than the citizens of Folly. The Civic Club will be conducting their usual Candidates Forum on March 15th at 7pm in the Community Center. It is a good time to meet the Candidates and have your questions answered while listening to their answers to other citizen’s questions. Of course, there are other means to meet and speak with the candidates, like meet and greets, at the Post Office, or personal contact; but the traditional Candidates Forum is very informative and a chance to meet some of the Citizens of Folly also. Thanks to the Civic Club for this opportunity and I look forward to seeing everyone there.
The City will be looking for some input for recreational opportunities for all citizens of all ages for future consideration. We have tennis, pickleball, basketball, surfing and swimming; but is there some other unique opportunity out there that has been missed by us? I am asking your input in this matter, so if you have any ideas, please forward them to me.
As always, if you have any questions you can reach me at email@example.com or 843 729 0298.
