Two of Gulf Stream’s harshest and loudest critics have picked up campaign packets from the town clerk and are considering a run for the Town Commission in the March 11 municipal election.
Martin O’Boyle, who took the town to court last year in a dispute over renovations to his waterfront home, and Christopher O’Hare, who runs an Internet website that lampoons town officials, have until Feb. 11 at noon to submit their documents and formally enter the race for the five open commission seats.
Mayor Joan Orthwein and Commissioner Robert Ganger also have received campaign papers from Town Clerk Rita Taylor. Commissioner Garrett Dering announced in December that he would not seek re-election for the two-year term.
