Question 1: Why have you chosen to run for office and what personal and professional experience do you bring?

Pam Triolo - incumbent

When I first ran for Mayor, I was concerned at the direction the city was going and couldn’t understand why a city with so many resources and amenities, was almost bankrupt, dirty, full of gangs, prostitutes and drugs. My predecessors believed that blight and slum “kept the city affordable” and told residents to get used to “living in the ghetto”! They made massive layoffs and even wanted to get rid of police- ALL police. As my husband and I invested in our home and businesses here, we didn’t believe this was acceptable and I decided to run for Mayor. In my first years, I created over 200 ordinances that got our city up to proper standards of living and safety, built a team, that came not only from government, but from the private sector. This has helped us get our electric rates on par with FPL, bring property values up double digits, crime down double digits and we are now the best investment in Palm Beach County. We cherish the arts, education, our families, our diversity, and while we want great infill in terms of development, we also want to maintain our small town charm. We can’t go back- we

I’m running for office because I believe Lake Worth Beach residents need better Representation in our City Government. I am a twenty Five Years resident of the City of Lake Worth Beach, twenty years Public Servant and Small business Owner. I have a real connection with the people in the head of the community and can deliver real solutions to the problems we are facing in the entire City of Lake Worth Beach.


Betty Resch (Rebuttal [1] by Pam Triolo - Incumbent)

As a 41-year resident and longtime business owner in Lake Worth Beach, I have seen, firsthand, the changes that have shaped our city. I believe in our city. I believe in our residents. And I believe our residents deserve to have more input on the issues that directly affect their lives. For the past 20 years, I have been an attorney in private practice. I have also served as a former City Attorney for Lake Worth (now Beach), and a former Town Attorney for Lake Park. I have over eight years of experience sitting on the dais and have a keen understanding of how cities are and should be run. Seeing that there is a lack of leadership on the dais, I made the decision to run for mayor. The current mayor cannot tolerate opposition to her ideas. Her temperament and behavior on the dais have brought negative attention to the city. As a trial attorney, I have 33 years of facing opposition and maintaining my professionalism. When things get hard, it is unacceptable to storm off the dais and declare that the meeting is adjourned. It is time for a change.

Rebuttal by Pam Triolo - incumbent:

As a Lawyer, Miss Resch should know better the intent of Robert’s Rules of Order. It relies solely on the board members pledged oath of office and commitment to follow such rules. When a Commissioner refuses to follow the rules, not just once, but continuously, over the course of hours and months, there are many other more severe actions that the Chair could take. I have chosen to recess a meeting in order to get calmer heads to prevail and regroup. As Miss Resch should also know a Recess is NOT an adjournment. A recess takes place almost every meeting when we break and does not need a vote. I also find it deplorable that Miss Resch would take advantage of a situation that was not only a set up, but a lie, for her own personal gain and troll former commissioners social media pages for donors.

 

Question 2: What do you see as the long-term plan for the Lake Worth Casino building on the beach?

Pam Triolo - incumbent

I wasn’t there for the planning of the beach casino and pool, just integral in getting them actually opened. Former electeds (some of whom are trying to run again) almost lost 5 million dollars from the County by refusing to accept it after construction was completed and I had to beg then County Commissioner Burt Aaronson to reissue the check after I was elected. The top space above Viva La Playa is still being used as staff space after years of mitigating flood damage with the construction company and is currently under first right of refusal by Benny’s. The ballroom on weekends is a top wedding destination nationwide. There has been much interest in creating more amenities there. I think the original planners of the entire project missed a lot of opportunities in design and function due to political feuds and lawsuits and the project suffered and stayed closed for years. I believe a redesign funded by a public private partnership could remedy the situation and provide something for everyone, while retaining all the rights to our amazing property.


Ronald J Hensley

William Joseph

The long-term plan should be the first consist of as much community input and transparency so we know what the Lake Worth Beach residents want for the future of the City public facilities. I believe the plan should be consistent with what would give the city the greatest value in return on, Investment from a community and economic standpoint. The plan should modernize what Makes Lake Worth Beach Unique but incorporate all the necessary improvements to maximize the areas potential.


Betty Resch

I see the casino as the centerpiece of a vibrant social scene at the beach. As Mayor, I will work to address the construction issues. It is a shame that the casino building is not being used to its full potential. There is a room as large as the ballroom that has a view of the sunrise and the best sunset view in Palm Beach County, and this mayor has allowed it to become a costly storage unit. A terrible waste of a valuable asset.



Question 3: Do you believe any of the penny sales tax should be spent on the oceanfront park? Please be very specific (for example, if you support spending on the pool, please indicate so).

Pam Triolo - incumbent

The Pool is an emotional project, and historic, as a pool has always existed on the beach since the casino was created. While I support a pool on the property, I do NOT support penny sales tax to build it. While this is a bit of a change from my original stance, no one could have expected what was to happen in 2020! Here we are in the middle of a global pandemic, focusing on feeding families, testing and soon vaccines. Homeowners in several areas of the city are experiencing flooding and sewer issues due to sea level rise and aging infrastructure. Our next level of road projects need to be assessed. Racial inequities and children in our most economically challenged areas are struggling to learn. We need to focus on strengthening our support systems from enhancing our community center, gym and early childcare through middle school programs. I think these are items that should benefit from the penny sales tax! As I stated in my last question, the beach complex needs to be addressed with a public private partnership that allows us to get the work done while still RETAINING OWNERSHIP of it.


Ronald J Hensley

No written response


William Joseph

The sale Tax funding was positioned to be used to invest in areas that would give the greatest return on investment. I believe in positioning the funds to be used that. The focus shouldn’t be for only one specific areas where funding is needed. If investing in one area can be used to be a Catalyst for the other areas that are in need of resources then, I’m all for it. My main concern is to make sure every development need is next.


Betty Resch

Yes. The penny sales tax is one way to help to improve the oceanfront park, including using those funds on the pool. I drive up to the beach at least once a day; it is very busy. I see young families with children coming to the beach, but sadly there is little for them to do. The playground, which was very popular, is gone. You cannot get a hot dog and a coke. The restaurants, although very good, are not affordable for casual dining or for a family to afford. I remember the walk-up window at John G’s; you could go up, get lunch in your bathing suit, and eat on the beach. I have a strong emotional attachment to the pool. I had been going there since 1967. I believe that there should be a pool at the beach. Not the pool that exists now, but a smaller version. I have had long talks with Sally Welsh about this. Also, I think there should be a child friendly splash park. It does not have to be large, but it would provide a place for folks to come to the beach with their kids and enjoy our wonderful beach front.



Question 4: Do you support closing some street entrances into the South Palm Park neighborhood to vehicular traffic and why / why not?

Pam Triolo - incumbent

I support what the residents of South Palm Park want. Street closings have been effective in areas such as Northwood in West Palm Beach and just to the south of us in Lantana. Until we can get decent new Investment on South Federal Highway, restricting drive traffic has been proven to curtail pimp and john pickups, burglaries and more. This is something we can accommodate if the neighborhood wants it. I’ve already talked with several members of the neighborhood association, would love to be a part of discussions if possible and bring experts from neighboring areas to offer insight. I await your decision


Ronald J Hensley

William Joseph

I know change is inevitable one of the main examples of that is this Covid-19 pandemic we are facing with. There are many regulations that affect our day to day lives that we all had to adjust to. At the moment we are in the middle of an increase pandemic and my plan is to work with Experts that have advice on what are the best solutions that promotes the safety and well being for our neighborhoods.


Betty Resch

Your neighborhood faces a challenge with some of the less desirable activity to your west. The city has closed some of the streets from Federal Highway. As long as enough of the cross streets are left open to enable emergency vehicles access to the neighborhood, it seems like closing some of the entrances would create more of a neighborhood feel, less through traffic, and I would support that.



Question 5: Do you support keeping the contract with PBSO and why / why not?

Pam Triolo - incumbent

I totally support PBSO especially our District 14. Our amazing LWPD did a great job, but the city didn’t have the funds to staff them properly nor afford the resources they needed to combat raging gang violence that was happening when PBSO was brought in. Many of the officers are from our old LWPD including our Captain, they know and care about our community. Today we benefit from protection not only by squad cars but by helicopter, horseback, segue, we have K-9 units and SWAT. They’ve just amped up their community policing efforts and have terrific programs to help our kids like their anti-bullying program..


Ronald J Hensley

No written response


William Joseph

The safety is a well being for our residents are first in foremost. I support keeping the contract with PBSO I want to work with the Sheriff and the community and improve the relationship between the sheriff and the Lake Worth Beach residents.


Betty Resch

I do support keeping the contract with PBSO. I lived and worked here when we had the Lake Worth Police Department and remember what it was like. We had become a training ground for the PBSO! There was little room for advancement in the department, so officers really had no choice but to move on if they envisioned a career in law enforcement. The PBSO has served our city well. They provide resources that the city could never provide, and I support them.



Question 6: Do you support Lake Worth Beach keeping our electric utility and why / why not?

Pam Triolo - incumbent

When I first became Mayor I wanted nothing more than to sell our Utility. And then I did the research. While the focus was on generating power back in its inception, it became more of a distribution company as years moved on. And it was never reinvested in. It also became a cash cow, as prior city electeds found it could not only pad the General Fund, it could bring them monies for other pet projects. Over 6 years ago, along with the majority of the commission, we decided to create a LAW that forced the city’s residential rates to be at rate parity with FPL within 5 years. And we did it! It had been my goal to wean the General Fund off the utility. I also encouraged the city to create our own solar farm on our old capped landfill. We also recently contracted to purchase power from two statewide solar farms that will grow our solar portfolio from today’s 64 watts of solar per customer, to more than 1,400 watts of solar for every customer we serve. This is the equivalent of every one of our customers installing a 1.4 kilowatt solar system on their

I believe the City should use resources to find whatever the most cost effective solution is in order to sustain our utilities. We have to THINK Long term and what is best, whatever the decision is it should be the best for the residents .My goal is to be transparent with the community by examining all solutions and allowing the residents to have the ultimate say in matters that affect them the most


Betty Resch (Rebuttal [2] by Pam Triolo - Incumbent)

As long as it makes financial sense to keep our utility, I do support keeping it. I like the fact that we have control over our power. I am however very dissatisfied with the customer service the city provides. There are too many stories about problems with incorrect billing, a lack of civility and mistakes being made that have caused improper cut offs of power. Just recently, 50 people had their power cut off because the “total amount due” on their bill was incorrect. Also, we need to do more with solar power. The recent workshop did talk about more solar, but time has gone by with no improvements. Also, “tidal power” has been touted, working with FAU, but there has been no word about that for a long time. There is much talk about selling the utility. If someone were to come along and offer us enough money that we could invest it and recoup the income with dividends, then it might make sense. Royal Palm Beach did this with their water utility some years ago, and they got a good price and are able to use the dividends from the investment of that money to supplement their budget.

Rebuttal by Pam Triolo - incumbent:

Selling the Utility now could bankrupt the city. Our legal obligations to St Lucie and Stanton Power Contracts and our membership in FMPA are expensive and legally difficult to get out of. GOOGLE Vero Beach! As is, our Utility would not warrant a sale price that would bring in enough cash to support the ongoing contribution to our general Fund to run most of our City services. Lake Worth Beach’s own Solar Farm (created under the Mayors Leadership) and signed purchase power agreements with FMPA and Next Era, will grow the City’s solar portfolio from today’s 64 watts of solar per customer, to more than 1,400 watts of solar for every customer! That’s like every LWB customer installing a 1.4 kw solar system on their roof! This will make us one of the first cities in the state/country to reduce our carbon footprint over 50% in the (truncated).


Question 7: What are your top two priorities should you be elected?

Pam Triolo - incumbent

Quality of life issues that include public safety, Covid reponse and infrastructure’s continued improvements and a revamp of code enforcement. Until my arrival they had never invested in master plans to see our city through to the next generations. Investment and improvements that add value to the true LWB experience without sacrificing the very reasons we all moved here to begin with, and bring in a tax base and jobs to help our city and residents thrive.


Ronald J Hensley

No written response


William Joseph

My top two priorities are to find resources for families and small business that are hurting from this pandemic and development, there are a lot of families that hurting because of this pandemic and Federal development isn’t moving fast enough. I want to work to make sure that we are doing all we can to find out what can be done to help our working class families and small business. I believe the time has come to Lake Worth Bach to position itself as d premier Developing City in Palm Beach County ,we have watching other Cities around us blossom in this development area. It time to focus on developing our City to a full potential and Create generational wealth for the minorities.


Betty Resch (Rebuttal [3] by Pam Triolo - Incumbent)

I would first move to improve transparency in the city including giving the citizens more substantive and meaningful input, and second, I would insist on a review of the city manager. It is unfair to all that his performance has not been reviewed in the almost ten years he has been here. There are some very simple and cost-effective ways to increase transparency. There should be more information routinely posted on the city website. The website is vague. To get specific information, you have to contact the city

clerk, city manager or the finance department and ask for the records. Another way would be to have regular commission chats, held on Zoom and then posted - not formal meetings where action takes place, but a place where the mayor and commissioners can discuss what is happening in the city, what concerns they have heard from citizens and how those concerns can be addressed. This way the commission could openly discuss things without violating the “Sunshine Law,” and let citizens know what their commission and mayor are thinking. The current mayor and commission have outright rejected citizens’ attempts to have a more open dialogue regarding issues that affect our lives.

Rebuttal by Pam Triolo - incumbent:

The website must be ADA compliant. We utilize every technological tool available. The word Transparency seems to be a weapon, that people can wield without any basis of facts. I prefer public records requests. The CM, City Attorney and City Auditor are the only position the Commission can control and should be reviewed, especially if a commissioner has a concern and requires a majority vote. Miss Resch understands this as she resigned from her position as City Attorney on the day she was supposed to be reviewed. For Transparency purposes I’d like to know why? I’d also like to know where the thousands of dollars she raised as Chair of the Centennial Committee 9 years ago went since we never did get a clock tower at the beach. And If I was to pull a public records request on Miss Resch, from the Florida Bar, what would I find?

Question 8: Are you supportive of legalizing AirBNB in Lake Worth Beach?

  • If so, under what circumstances?

  • If not, why not?


Pam Triolo - incumbent

The State Legislature basically gave cities no real choice in the matter! It’s now our responsibility to work with the good players and our residents to create consistent and reasonable policies, procedures, ermitting and licensing to keep people safe, and are fair to the community. Bad players will not be tolerated under my watch, whether its’ Air B&B’s, Sober Homes, Slumlords or Chronic Nuisances.


Ronald J Hensley

No written response


William Joseph

I support Legalizing AIRBNB in Lake Worth Beach but to make sure we address our workforce and affordable housing needs as well.AIRBNB is great for the people to travel to our City which is great for Hotels and Businesses I support anything that will grow economically but there must be a balance. We have to provide workforce and affordable housing.


Betty Resch

Lake Worth is a tourist destination without a hotel. The vacation rentals have brought income (the 13% tax) into the city as well as visitors who shop at our stores and eat at our restaurants. I understand the objections that have been raised, but with adequate and enforceable regulations and guidelines, I think that they can be a positive for the city. As the Gulfstream languishes, there are few places for folks to stay here. Of course, party houses are not acceptable, but again, proper rules and enforcement can work. (I had a neighbor who had a long-term tenant who was a nightmare. I only wished he would go away in a week!)



Question 9: What would you do to champion South Federal Highway development other than halfway houses and recovery centers? Please provide details.

Pam Triolo - incumbent

There has been a resurgence in interest in South Federal Highway with projects SPP neighbors have been hoping for, for decades. I hope to work with these investors and the neighborhood to bring in good infill and development and a master plan that will encourage home ownership, a sense of community and safety.


Ronald J Hensley

No written response


William Joseph

This is a great Corridor for mixed use commercial and residential projects. I would support small businesses, minority Owner businesses and workforce housing.


Betty Resch

I would create incentives for the creation of appropriate development. There are enough large empty lots that could be creatively developed. We are a “cottage town” and as only one example, a cluster of cottages that share a common area could be developed. I would definitely solicit ideas from the community to hear your ideas before any development was considered. It’s time to hear from the constituents!



Question 10: What is the plan to maintain the mangroves that have been planted along the ICW in Bryant Park?

Pam Triolo - incumbent

The ERM Living Shoreline project was initiated before my arrival. I’ve met with them several times to remind them of the City and property owners compromise of doing the right thing for our environment and doing right by homeowners who bought their properties with a view of the intracoastal. Promises of keeping mangroves to a certain height and/or creating “windows” between them has been forgotten in certain sections and there needs to be a followup review process set in place for the future.


Ronald J Hensley

No written response


William Joseph

I will work with my Staff and assure that we protect the mangroves and preserve them as much as possible.


Betty Resch

I am not entirely sure if the city has any jurisdiction over the maintenance. If we do, then I would ensure that the mangroves would be maintained and protected.



Question 11: Is the CRA doing a good job?

  • If not, what would you change?

  • If so, what would you do to promote their work and / or improve their effectiveness?

Pam Triolo - incumbent

CRA’s are created to bring in new projects and infill to blighted areas of the city. Residents, Business and Land Owners are appointed to this Board to ensure that any projects that they bring in to areas such as our Downtown, Dixie Highway and other areas of intensity, are designed to get businesses to thrive and provide amenities for our residents. Are they doing a good job? Yes! Lake Worth Beach was the only city in the country that was able to secure a 26 Million dollar affordable housing grant that focused on home ownership and the repair or rebuild of many of our neighborhoods through Adopt a Family and Habitat for Humanity. The CRA has provided grants for both fa├žade and interior renovations for local businesses. They’ve assembled properties that have and will revitalize the City from the Artists Lofts between Lake and Lucerne and along Dixie Highway and just west of the RR tracks Downtown with The Mid and The Bohemian Projects. Our CRA and their incentives are instrumental in the reopening of our beloved Gulfstream Hotel. CRA’s are created to do these types of projects and then sunset after they’ve accomplished these goals. I would encourage more

I believe the CRA is doing a great job ad I want to continue to Improve the relationship with the City and CRA.I want to make sure we are doing all we can to support the CRA in order to minimize the resources available to assist with our development needs.


Betty Resch

In theory, I have been supportive of the CRA. However, lately the vision of the CRA does not feel like a “fit” with the vision of the city that myself and many other folks have. For example, the city and the CRA have acquired almost a full block of properties that lie between my office and my home two blocks away. The plan is to demolish the existing buildings, many of which are contributing historic buildings, and erect a four-story apartment building. This will eliminate 67 public parking spaces. Although there is no active plan yet, the CRA evicted all the tenants in the buildings. So, no utilities are being used, a loss of income to the city, and the block is now a black hole, when it used to be a busy block with people coming and going. I want to see the focus shift from being outright developers all the time to a more creative approach. Those buildings could be used as business incubators. This would promote downtown vibrancy, support local businesses/artisans, and create studios, shops, and galleries which would be destinations for people visiting the city. Right now, it is mostly bars and restaurants.


Question 12: What would you do to advance the improvement of the condition of our city streets?

Pam Triolo - incumbent

I inherited a city with no master plans for infrastructure including the roadways. In fact it was nearly duct taped and asphalted to make it appear solid, while underneath it was neglected for 40+ years. A Majority of the Commission agreed and spent several years creating a master plan that not only addressed the roads, but all the infrastructure below it, so new roads wouldn’t have to be dug up years later to fix ailing water and sewer pipes and other needs. It’s unofficial name became “Do it once do it right” and we took it to the voters for a bond with a price tag of $60 million dollars for 40-50 years of benign neglect. After failing by only a literal handful of votes, it was brought back at a reduced price tag of $40 million, passed,

and the plan had to be trimmed to include only “the worst first”. The streets that were way down on the list are now showing signs of age and damage so it’s up to us to use our Master Plan and aggressively attack the next in line with new sources of revenue created by our new investment.


Ronald J Hensley

No written response


William Joseph

Improving our streets is one of my main objectives, resources to improve our infrastructure and we need to take full advantage of those resources. The conditions of our streets are playing a huge role in the reflection of our city. Let not allow the City to conflict to have a negative out book by allowing our streets to continue to be under role developed.


Betty Resch

This needs to be addressed in an orderly and businesslike way. The bond was a start, but the city needs a long-range plan of preventative maintenance and work on it. This may be a slow approach, but it has not been done. There is a survey of the worst to best roads in the city, so outside of the bond the city should work on that list and prevent the further deterioration of our roads.



Question 13: We have many vacant storefronts downtown with some landlords charging high rents / making property too expensive to promote redevelopment. What would you do to fix this?

Pam Triolo - Incumbent (Rebuttal [1] by Betty Resch)

Many projects planned for our Downtown prior to the Pandemic, have been delayed due to banks not financing hospitality projects right now. The reopening of our beloved Gulfstream Hotel will usher in the footsteps of more shoppers and diners, and provide a major boost to our local economy. The latest hotel project completed by Amrit and Amy Gil (of Restoration St. Louis-the future owners of the Gulfstream) in Sioux City this summer, brought in a flood of new leases and shops within a month - during a global pandemic! We also need to create more incentives through our CRA to new and existing owners and need to encourage owners to fill empty storefronts or pay for the cost to carry them and decorate them while they await new operators. We also have to invest more in the safety and appearance of our downtown. Good things are coming and I can’t wait to see us flourish!

Rebuttal by Betty Resch:

One wonders what the many projects planned for our downtown the mayor is referring to. The pandemic is a year old and the mayor has been here for ten. You can’t blame the pandemic for everything.

The Gulfstream has been shut down for years. The mayor speaks of the success of the Gils in Sioux City this summer, while the Gulfstream stands empty. The project is stalled, they have been given years to do their “due diligence.” It’s time to hold their feet to the fire or find a new developer.

William Joseph

I will work to find incentives for small businesses Owners and property Owners assist with rent and development cost so that businesses aren’t forced to complete with the bottom line principal investors or do business in the City. We will produce a balance economic system that works for all involved.


Betty Resch

We have the unfortunate situation where one family has purchased and controls a large majority of the downtown storefronts. This is a rough one. There is a limit as to what government can do to incentivize private property owners to do the right thing. They may have some future business plan, but they are really hurting our city!


As mayor, I would privately approach the family and try to begin a conversation with them about the effect they are having and see if there is any way that some sort of cooperative effort could be made that would not impinge on their property rights but would still somehow benefit the city. At the same time, I would investigate what control or consequences the city could impose on them for leaving so many storefronts empty. I remember a vibrant downtown and we need to see it come alive again.



Question 14: Covid-19 has taken a toll on our country and our city. What initiatives would you propose the city make to help our residents and businesses recover?

Pam Triolo - incumbent

Our City has been a leader in organizing Covid testing sites in our neighborhoods and we are prepared to work the same way with the County, PBCFR and local non profits to administer the vaccine, should the state release it for their distribution. While large cities like West Palm and Palm Beach Gardens have offered some small monetary grants for business owners, it’s way beyond our ability, given our 7 square mile tax base. The CRA has been holding workshops and meetings to help business owners apply and gain access to funds through County programs and the PPP initiative. We continue our feeding programs and free testing sites every week. We should also look for local grants and discuss incentives in our upcoming budget process.


Ronald J Hensley

No written response


William Joseph

There are limited resources for this pandemic so we must prepare to take advantage of what is giving but do our best to find Local solutions. This will allow us to take a modern approach to create disaster relief. The federal government is doing all they can to give assistance but in most cases they hasn’t given enough to the working families, this is why I believe local government most step to the plate in tap to resources that are writing in our power. All effort should go towards making sure we assist our residents and businesses which are the back home of our community.


Betty Resch

First, I would create a presence downtown to discourage the maskless, close behavior that goes on every night. There is no city presence there now to remind folks about masks and social distancing. Not a sign, not a banner. The outside venues for the restaurants are a good thing, but too many folks are close and maskless.


Second, I would find out how the city could get testing and vaccine venues into the city. There should be some flexibility in the electric repayment of the lost revenue. The businesses have suffered to keep their doors open. The success of the city lies with its businesses.


Please note: the video response to Question #6 runs long.
