My vision for “Our” Signature City parallels our founding father, John D. MacArthur; a City with beautiful garden charm for everyone, with responsible growth and infrastructure plans.  We live in roughly 60 square miles of paradise but must keep up with the changing times.  This can only be achieved through fiscal responsibility, government transparency, term limits and infrastructure management – allowing for fresh voices and fresh ideas.
With over 28 years of experience as a CPA in the private and public sectors, I have tackled big projects, expanding the economy, creating jobs, staying within a designated footprint all without overextending the municipal infrastructure and burdening services for the residents.
While in office, I will work with my colleagues to achieve government transparency by: 1) Fiscal Responsibility – create working groups that will have a say in reviewing the budget and services, with collaborative ideas to streamline and cut excess processes, 2) Transparency - City Council meetings having social media platforms with live streaming so all residents can participate in real-time, 3) Term-Limits – Keep two 3-year terms so the City Council has fresh voices and fresh ideas, and 4) Infrastructure Management – it is important we continue to improve the infrastructure to ensure it can adequately support the business and population growths,

City Official “Shrugs it Off” – “It Could Have Been Worse” [Sears Wanted 2.1 Million]

 

2012 MALL RESOLUTION - UNCONSTITUTIONAL

· Sears at the Gardens Mall wanted to sublet space to Dick’s Sporting Goods

· The landlord sought a resolution from the “Our” taxpayer paid, City Council, to prevent anchor stores from subletting space [Resolution 20-2012]

· Sears sued the Landlord and dragged the City of Palm Beach Gardens into the dispute based on the actions of "OUR City [Tinsley the Land Planner} Council" 

· STATE APPELLATE COURT FOUND the Taxpayer funded CITY RESOLUTION 20-2012 to be UNCONSTITUTIONAL 

Still the battle continues and  YOUR TAX DOLLARS are at risk

 

So Why Did The City Council (Tinsley the Land Planner) Get Involved In A Private Corporate Matter?

We Need Better – We Deserve Better

Term Limits

Tinsley, the Land Planner Supported Term-Limits Until

Termed Out

Rob Nanfro has an overpowering belief in term limits.  For all – without term limits the elected official lives in a world of immortality where reelection is inevitable and incumbents become tone deaf, shattering voters’ confidence in the system.

 

In February 2014 Tinsley, the Land Planner, “said she supports term limits but that voters should decide the issue

 

2014 - VOTERS SUPPORTED TWO 3-YEAR TERMS

TINSLEY, the LAND PLANNER SERVED TWO 3-YEAR TERMS

 

Tinsley, the Land Planner, DOES NOT SUPPORT the will of Voters

According to Palm Beach Gardens Watch, Tinsley, The Land Planner,  a former City of Palm Beach Gardens Councilwoman supported term limits; “[Tinsley, the Land Planner, said] she supports term limits but ‘reasonable’ term limits and what is out there isn’t reasonable.”

 

2018 - At the behest of the City Council, $100K of YOUR TAX DOLLARS WERE SPENT to increase “term-limits” – AGAIN. a measured that passed in November 2014 with 80% of the voters supporting two 3-year terms.

Breakdown of TAXPAYER FUNDS SPENT

March 2018 - $35K

August 2018 - $65K

The 2018 Measure lost by a 2-1 margin with a high price tag paid by YOU

NOW......SHE’s BAAAACCCCKKKK

TERM LIMITS WORK

ROB NANFRO SUPPORTS – TWO 3-Year TERMS

Rob’s Promise – When elected I will serve at the will of the people and follow the spirit of the measure that passed in November 2014.***

The “Stadium Proposal”

– A [Tinley, the Land Planner] “Squeeze” Play Attempt

[Giles] Kibbe said “Astros officials last met with city and county officials about three weeks ago about the stadium, which would be near the Shady Lakes and Bent Tree neighborhoods…..“We are very-focused on getting the deal to come to (Gardens) finalized. There is strong interest in all parties to making this happen,” Kibbe said.

"We're doing this to get resident feedback."

“Crane [Astros Owner] started having conversations with Palm Beach Gardens officials in 2012 about a proposed spring training facility for his Astros.” …..“Crane, 59, is involved with Palm Beach Gardens because of baseball.”

 

11/07/2013 PBG City Council Minutes

The mayor instructed ask the City Manager to step up talks with the [Astros & Blue Jays] teams and the county and try and meet an end of year deadline.

Did Tinsley, the Land Planner, miss “Council” team meetings?

11/07/2013 Palm Beach Post

“Five months before Palm Beach Gardens officials unveiled a proposal to build a spring training baseball complex near Interstate 95, a marketing firm hired by the city had already sized up potential opponents….In its pitch to win a six-month, $60,000 marketing and public relations contract with the city, the PR firm presented city officials with a plan to help make a case for the stadium project.

11/13/2013 Palm Beach Post                                                                    Giles Kibbe, the [Astros] team's general counsel, said Friday that the Astros are focusing on the 117-acre site off Central Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens and not looking at West Palm Beach or anywhere else.”

Tinsley the Land Planner – Was Part of the Team

11/16/2013 Palm Beach Post                                                                       “I would love to be able to tell you what my position is,” Councilwoman [Tinsley, the Land Planner] said. “At this point, there is no proposal to base a decision on.”

Tinsley, the Land Planner – Now, wants another "Turn At Bat"?
