What do you see as the top three issues in this race?

  1. Beach Re-nourishment. St. Augustine Beach has a beautiful, wide, and accessible beach. Protecting this natural gift is a high priority.
  2. Protecting the quality of life for SAB residents and resident business owners, while welcoming visitors to our quaint beach town and making SAB a destination which can be enjoyed.
  3. Providing a workable solution for access to the beach, our businesses, restaurants all the events which SAB has to offer without undue traffic congestion and parking issues. This may require a joint public/private partnership among all stakeholders such as SAB, the City of St. Augustine, the county, state, and Tourism Council.
