Town Councilwoman Bobbie Lindsay is seeking re-election to her seat in the March 19 town election. Lindsay filed for re-election to the Group 2 council seat on October 19.
Lindsay acknowledged numerous accomplishments that occurred during her tenure, and credited teamwork and support from other council members, the mayor, and the community. However, she says, the work is ongoing.
“Our town is under immense pressure due to the enormous increase in development across the bridge, as well as a record number of existing and proposed in-town construction projects and many more visitors,” Lindsay said. “The associated impacts and disruption caused by all this activity has tested our happiness and well-being. Looking ahead, careful consideration of each council decision is going to be critical to maintain Palm Beach’s distinctive small-town character.”
Before joining the council, Lindsay, served as a member of the Palm Beach Civic Association’s Executive Committee, and organized the Save Our Inlet Coalition that fought to block an expansion of the Port of Palm Beach. She and other opponents said the expansion would harm the marine environment, eco-tourism and the local recreational economy.
Lindsay is one of three incumbents whose two-year term expires in March. Councilman Lew Crampton filed to seek re-election last week for the Group 1 council seat. Council President Margaret Zeidman, who holds the Group 3 seat, has decided not to seek another term. John David Corey, a member of the town’s Architectural Commission, announced his intention to run for the Group 3 seat that Zeidman is vacating.
