Planning and Zoning Board Chairman Cary Glickstein announced his candidacy for mayor in July, seeking a seat that current Mayor Woodie McDuffie plans to vacate early to campaign for county Supervisor of Elections.
“There has been a gaping leadership void in the city for far too long on many levels,” Glickstein said in making his announcement.
“We need proactive and independent thinking, not more elected puppets, complacency, band-aid solutions, or more missed opportunities to accelerate a sustained economic recovery for our town.
“Like other cities, there are tough choices ahead for our town, but I am ready to step up and lead,” said Glickstein, president of Ironwood Properties. Delray Beach’s next election is set for March 13.
