Holmes Beach City Commission candidate Jean Peelen answers questions during the recent Bradenton Herald Candidate Forum.PAUL VIDELA/Bradenton Herald


I am surprised about the negative reflection upon Jean Peelen in your lack of endorsement. She truly represents the residents of Holmes Beach. She listens and responds to our residential problems, especially regarding overdevelopment and rental abuses.

As far as the comment "day trippers," Jean Peelen never made that comment but the mayor of Anna Maria did. Still, the offended "day trippers" do not reside or vote in Holmes Beach.
