The Palm Beach County Hotel & Lodging Association (www.hotelassociation.com) held a County Commission, District 6, Candidate Luncheon on May 7, 2014 at the PGA National Resort. Three candidates, Republican Andrew Schaller and Democrats Kathy Foster and Melissa McKinlay each gave a five minute introduction to the attendees and then answered questions. This was the first time all candidates of the 2014 race were in this type of public forum together.
Question 1: Do you support All Aboard Florida?
Question 2: Do you support Wellington hosting the World Equestrian Games?
Question 3: Do you support raising the Palm Beach County Bed Tax from five cents to six cents?
Here is Andrew Schaller’s opening remarks:
The full video of the luncheon appears below.
The members of the Association are comprised of hotels, motels and other lodging establishments in Palm Beach County (stretching along Florida’s east coast from Boca Raton in the south to Jupiter in the north), as well as allied members serving the hospitality community. The programs of the Association serve both its members and visitors, and we have therefore also included a brief description of each member property for the benefit of those planning a trip for either business or pleasure to the area.
