LETTER TO EDITOR: We Support Re-Election of Holly Smith To Council

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Santiva Chronicle publishes opinions and letters on topics that are important to Sanibel and Captiva. They may be submitted via e-mail at news@santivachronicle.com.

I’m writing to express our support for the re-election of Holly D Smith as a member of our city council. And, to urge every voter to do the same.

We have known Holly Smith for over 20 years when we were both volunteers for FISH of Sanibel/Captiva. This was the start of Holly understanding what Sanibel was all about and it was clear back then Holly had a passion for making sure all the citizens of Sanibel had a ‘hand up’ when they needed it.

Since then, she has performed many volunteer roles serving the Sanibel community. As a member of the Planning Commission, as Vice Mayor and now as Mayor she had the broad experience necessary to take on the leadership role before, during and after the Hurricane Ian disaster. No one was better qualified or had a better understanding of what the people of Sanibel required than Mayor Holly Smith.

Who could have imagined or have been perfectly prepared for what our community is going through? Under Holly Smith’s leadership we are making progress, we still have a long way to go, but we need her steady hand on the wheel to get us through this.

Virginia and I will be voting to reelect Holly Smith to her seat on Sanibel’s city council on March 7th and we strongly encourage you to vote the same.
