With each election, hope springs eternal.
Monday, November 21st, 2016 is the day the new Port St Lucie City Council members get sworn in. Congratulations to the three that won their elections.
Rule of three
The rule of three tells us that things that come in threes are more effective and satisfying.
Jolien Caraballo briefly served as a councilwoman during Ron Bowen’s suspension. She is the business manager for a local, high-end spa. Caraballo first ran for this position four years ago. Eventually, Ron Bowen won the seat. This time around, Caraballo handily beat Bowen in the August primary. As there were only two candidates, there was no need for a November election. I had the pleasure to meet her on the campaign trail four years ago. She is smart, not afraid to dig into the details and ask questions and thinks outside the box.
