GAME CHANGER: PBC Commissioner Steven Abrams Endorses Robert Weinroth To Succeed Him

Boca Raton, Fla. – Today, Palm Beach County Commissioner and former Boca Raton Mayor, Steven Abrams, endorsed commission candidate and former Boca Raton City Council Member Robert Weinroth in the race to succeed him for the open District 4 commission seat.
The support of Abrams, a veteran public servant who began his career serving in the Reagan White House, is a critical turning point in this swing district. In fact, the endorsement is an unprecedented bipartisan showing of support for Weinroth, who has already received the endorsement of over 30 local elected officials including Congressman Ted Deutch, Congresswoman Lois Frankel and Abrams’ fellow commissioners, Mack Bernard, Dave Kerner and Paulette Burdick.
“Robert Weinroth has worked collaboratively in a bipartisan way to put the needs of the community first,” said Abrams. “He has served on county boards dealing with transportation  issues, where we have worked together, and he has taken a results-focused approach. He is well-prepared to effectively serve the district at the county level.”
Weinroth warmly accepted the endorsement, noting “Commissioner Abrams has represented the city of Boca Raton and Palm Beach County with honor and dignity for three decades and his leadership has improved our quality of life on every level.  Steven is a good friend, I look forward to picking up where he is leaving off.”
Robert Weinroth was first elected to the Boca Raton City Council in 2014 and served as Deputy Mayor in 2015.  He and his wife, Pamela, have lived in Boca Raton for over 20 years.  As of the last reporting period on June 22nd, Weinroth had raised over $130,000 for the commission 4 race.
