PB Co. municipalities hold elections March 14

When voters go to the polls in Boca Raton Tuesday they'll be choosing between two candidates for mayor, who agree it's a wonderful city to live in but that it also has traffic problems.

Susan Haynie has been mayor of Palm Beach County's second largest city since 2014. She faces a challenge from Al Zucaro,  a former West Palm Beach city commissioner who moved to Boca Raton in 2009.

Zucaro says there's too much traffic downtown. He says a common sense approach is needed with a better strategy for developing the city.

Haynie calls the traffic situation one of the city's toughest challenges. But she says she's brought in more than $110 million for transportation improvements. She says her work as a transportation analyst will help solve the problem.

It's typical of  the contests that are being held in 21 municipalities in Palm Beach County on March 14.

One of the biggest changes will take place in Palm Beach Gardens where three longtime city council members are leaving because of term-limits.

In Palm Beach Shores, voters will not have any candidates on the ballot, but they'll have more referendums on the ballot than any other municipality. They'll be voting on five questions, ranging from eliminating the tax collector's office to how town commissioners should be elected.
