Town of Palm Beach Town Caucus Year 105

Over 125 people were present at the event that was held at Town Hall’s Town Council Chambers – 105th Palm Beach Town Caucus. After the nomination of candidates is seconded at least twice by town voters, their names are placed on the ballot.
Gail Coniglio was nominated for her fourth term as town major and elected unopposed. She was nominated by Roberta Horwich, who praised Coniglio’s work as mayor and vice president of the Palm Beach County League of Cities. The nomination was seconded by Richard Rene Silvin and the mayor’s son, Nick Coniglio. As Horwich emphasized, Coniglio is that busiest person you should go to in order to get something done, and she has good connections and working relationships with people who matter in Palm Beach County. 

Danielle Moore was also elected unopposed after being nominated as the Group 1 council member. She will serve her second term. Her nomination came from Bruce McAllister; Carla Temini Cove and Patricia Lebow seconded his nomination. Moore, the daughter of former Mayor Lesly Smith, has worked on pension reform, beach restoration, and, as McAllister said, her record of service is open for everyone to see.
However, there will be one race in The Town of Palm Beach to determine who will fill the Group 2 Town Council seat, as Town Council President Michael Pucillo decided not to run for his fourth term earlier last year. Julie Araskog and Martin Klein will be in the running for this elected and unpaid election.

Araskog was nominated by Robert Wildrick, former Town Council President, and seconded by Ann Summers, Robert Davidow, Murray Goodman and Randolph Araskog, Julie Araskog’s father. Wildrick said in his nomination that Araskog believes in inclusiveness of all people, and that no one should be left out of the movement for change.
Klein was nominated by Nancy Murray. The nomination of the attorney and chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission was seconded by his daughter, Michele Beth Levbarg-Klein, as well as Donald Singer. During nomination, Nancy Murray said that, having worked for the benefit of Palm Beach for years, Klein’s dedication to the town has been proven. According to her, Klein deserves the nomination for being fair-minded and treating everyone with respect.
