The City of Boca Raton is in our Election Spotlight for this entry.

Earlier this week, we heard from the candidates for Seat D on the City Council. Today, we focus on Seat C, where incumbent Yvette Drucker was first elected three years ago.

"I've had a proven record of being someone that's a good listener with a clear vision and really my efforts with the city have really really focused on transportation and mobility...getting people around, reducing traffic."

She was recently appointed to a national committee on transportation infrastructure.

Boca Raton opened its Brightline station in December of 2022 and Drucker says it's been a great addition for the city and the people who live and work there.

"Having a Brightline station also drives economic sustainability because you know where the Brightline appears, if you look at other areas that they've been at, there's a whole redevelopment that happens in those areas."

Drucker faces a challenge from realtor Bernard Korn who has run twice for mayor unsuccessfully, both in 2018 and 2020.

As he has in the past, Korn claims there is corruption going on within Boca Raton city government, but he hasn't expanded on that in an interview that I've offered him.

He has said he was against a failed attempt by the council last year to extend term limits from three years to four and favors eliminating a city ordinance which lengthened the period of time that a prospective candidate must live in the city from 30 days to one year prior to qualifying.
