“(Deutsch) has shown no interest in preventing deadly Red Tide and Algae blooms,” Fischer said. “He supports funded special interests, not those of the people who elected him.”
Joan Fischer will speak to Englewood neighborhood group
The Englewood East Property and Homeowners Association (EEPHOA) has invited Charlotte County Commission candidates Joan Fischer, Democrat, and Stephen Deutsch, Republican, to discuss county issues at its next meeting, Wed. Oct 17 at 2:30 in the meeting room of the Englewood Library in Tringali Center, 3450 North Access Road, Englewood, FL 34224.
Joan has a long history of being involved in Charlotte County politics and county government. Joan regularly attends county commission and advisory board meetings. She has a formidable grasp of the intricacies, the people, and history. A casual talk with Joan will cover details about subjects ranging from Sunseeker to overruns for low-income housing, and Murdock Village. Joan not only knows the issues, but she personally knows county staff and where to go to get answers. She regularly attends commission meetings as well as the many advisory board meetings that provide input to county government. She also reads public documents and contracts.
Joan doesn’t just sit and listen in the meetings. During the public comment time, she stands to speak about discrepancies. Her comments have made differences in what the commission does. Joan’s watchword is “transparency”. She wants county government to provide accurate and complete information to the public. Because she takes the time to scrutinize documents she finds problems that are overlooked and need to be addressed.
Stephen Deutsch is a two-term incumbent. His key points are that Charlotte County’s economy is doing well and the commission hasn’t raised taxes.
EEPHOA will hold its next meeting on Wed. Oct 17 at 2:30 in the meeting room of the Englewood Library in Tringali Center, 3450 North Access Road, Englewood, FL 34224. The meeting is open to the public.
