Letters to the Editor

Supporting Maughan for city council

To the editor: While there are many great candidates seeking election to the open Sanibel City Council seats, I would like the community to consider voting for Jason Maughan. Being on the council before, he has done great work helping address the beach erosion issues at Blind Pass. On the ...
