An Editorial on Sen. Steube

May 4, 2017

This editorial finds merit in Steube’s willingness to stand up for his beliefs. However, the article also illustrates the unfortunate part is that his beliefs are misguided and negatively affecting us all. It has been well documented that one of his perceptions about home rule is his attempt to buy rental property in Flagler County and finding out that the community had existing restrictions that forbids weekly rentals. He found this restrictive to his property rights even though he hadn’t purchased the property. We agree with the conclusion of the editorial – veto the Steube bill and send him a message at the ballot box in 2020.
