On Tuesday, May 14, eligible residents will cast their vote in Margate. In the meantime, part-time Margations (75% of Margate tax base) will sit on the sidelines and hope for some much needed shake-up inside City Hall.
The incumbents, also known as ‘The Three Amigos’ are Michael Becker, Maury Blumberg and John Amodeo. Will they overcome some heavy baggage like… over-development, lack of parking, dune boggles, beach sewer pipes, Amherst Ave waterparks, not-so-mini golf, public porta-potties, a bloated school district, as well as the infamous Ventura’s hotel overlay scheme?
