We are the “Grassroots Team” supporting and working as volunteers, for the election of Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch for Martin County Commissioner. The theme of our campaign is: “Rooted in our Community, Cultivating our Quality of Life.” The campaign logo includes a mangrove tree which symbolizes Jacqui’s connection and commitment to this community. Jacqui and her family are rooted in Martin County; and so are we. We joined Jacqui’s Grassroots Team because we know Jacqui is the person we want fighting for our community and our way life. Her work over the past decade to protect the St. Lucie River and the Indian River Lagoon has earned Jacqui recognition throughout the state, on Capitol Hill and around the world. Over the past four years Jacqui has used her blog, to document the history and impact of failed water policies of the South Florida Water Management District and the Army Corps of Engineers. Our Grassroots Team has declared Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch Martin County’s “E-Candidate” because she is dedicated to protecting our estuary and the environment, and to growing our economy. Jacqui will help revitalize our redevelopment areas and offer support to small business owners hoping to establish or expand their companies. A graduate of the University of Florida and its Leadership Institute, Jacqui is trained in the art of relationship building and negotiation. Her leadership skills will help bring respect and civility back to the Commission as it continues fighting for the health of the St. Lucie and Indian River Lagoon and works to stop the All Aboard Florida trains. Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch has the experience and ability to effect change and create a more fiscally responsive and responsible government. Over the past eight years, as an elected and unpaid Commissioner in the Town of Sewall’s Point - including a term as Mayor - Jacqui has worked cooperatively with fellow Commissioners to manage the city’s budget and keep taxes down without compromising services. In 2007, Jacqui’s peers in the real estate industry elected her Martin County’s “Realtor of the Year.” She has also been honored by the Everglades Coalition, The Pegasus Foundation and the Board of the National Daughters of the American Revolution for her conservation work. Join our Grassroots Team and elect Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch our next Martin County Commissioner for District 1 on or before August 30.
