Thank you, Ocean Ridge residents, for returning me to the Town Commission for another three-year term.
During my years on the commission my platform has been pretty simple. I believe in private property rights, a strong Police Department, a commission that listens to the residents rather than to each other, and limited town governance that is based on common sense and not overly intrusive into residents’ lifestyles and choices.
Ocean Ridge faces two pressing issues: drainage and aging infrastructure. That’s where the focus should be. Longer term the conversion from septic to sewer (which most likely will be mandated by the state) needs to be addressed.
We live in a wonderful gem of a town. I will do everything I can to ensure that Ocean Ridge retains its unique small-town character.

Editor's Note: No other candidate qualified for Coz’s seat. As a result, there will be no municipal election in March.
