On Thursday, October 23rd, the Sun Sentinel newspaper released its list of endorsements for all 5 races in Pompano Beach. In addition to recommending incumbents Barry Dockswell (District 1), Charlotte Burrie (District 2) and Rex Hardin (District 3), the Sun Sentinel endorsed Whitney Rawls for the District 4 Commission seat.
The newspaper’s Editorial Board, which interviews candidates in elections across Broward and Palm Beach counties, says:
“Whitney Rawls has demonstrated a commitment to Pompano Beach through service… The logical next step is the City Commission, and the Sun Sentinel Editorial Board recommends District 4 voters elect him as their next commissioner.”
The recommendation also states that Rawls “has laid out an extensive platform aimed at fostering economic growth and good community relations in District 4 and other parts of Pompano Beach.”
