René on issues

PRESERVING PALM BEACH’S CHARACTER & CHARM

  • Palm Beach has to continue carefully balancing its historical significance with forward looking, cost-effective modernization. René has successfully done so in his business career and as a Palm Beach Landmarks Preservation Commissioner.
  • An effective council member must be able to balance individual citizens’ rights and concerns, with the needs of our ever-evolving town.

ENSURING A WELL-RUN TOWNHALL

  • René will be a competent team player for a fiscally sound future.
  • The high turn over rate among first responders and town staff needs to be tackled head on by offering competitive compensation and benefit packages. Creating a cohesive workforce, positive values and open honest communication are essential ingredients for a well-motivated team.

PROTECTING OUR COASTAL WAY OF LIFE

  • René is eager to join the team overlooking the potential catastrophic effects of rising sea levels and increasingly more powerful storms to our island.

MANAGING GROWTH/IMPROVEMENTS

  • The Town’s major capital improvement projects (Town docks, undergrounding, coastal protection) must be constantly and carefully monitored to assure they will be on time and on budget.
  • Building improved facilities must be complimented by preparing a well-trainer staff, to provide clients with the highest quality of service they expect in Palm Beach.
