The LoCastro Report
Thirtieth Edition
September 21, 2020
On August 18th, I was honored and humbled to win the Primary and to now serve as the official Republican nominee for the 
District 1 Collier County Commissioner seat!  

I'm proud of the professional & honest campaign we ran… 
reaching ALL of District 1.

We still have the November 3rd General Election against a Democratic opponent… and we will not take this upcoming final election for granted. I will continue to attend all County & City meetings, meet citizens, and hear concerns to best prepare myself to get started in this important position.

I'm at your service to attend events and speak at any size gathering so I can meet even more citizens throughout our District. These are perfect opportunities to open your home, business, clubhouse, etc… to those you know so we can talk about the issues important facing our community.

Please email me details if you have opportunities for me to meet and speak with citizens of our County!

In the primary election, you affirmed the value of Experience & Qualifications. Let's continue the momentum and see this through to the end.
During this pandemic most debates, townhalls, fundraisers, etc… have been cancelled…
Your financial support is critical & appreciated.

We won the August Republican Primary… but we now need your help to bring home the General Election!

One of the most important qualifications for our next District 1 County Commissioner is a strong grasp of the priorities, which can only happen if that person is experienced & knowledgeable about a wide spectrum of issues. Just some of the MANY items we must tackle!

East Naples
  • Have a true Master Plan to upgrade areas neglected and finally bring up to Collier County standards… but also ensure we DON'T neglect all other areas of District 1
  • Find solutions for storage units and out-of-business stores “dumped” in East Naples... and prevent those future mistakes
  • Ensure properly "Managed Growth" is considered to improve our District

  • Smart Track the long overdue fix of the main access road from flooding
  • Replace street signs damaged by Hurricane Irma--the County replaced them everywhere else long ago
  • Ensure we preserve Goodland as the paradise treasure it is!

Port of the Islands
  • Remove the abandoned, burned out, graffiti-filled buildings -- a massive Safety & Security hazard
  • Push for Fire House generator hooked to Marina pump for emergency use
  • Ensure any Master Plan for District 1 includes POI... you are no longer an afterthought!

Marco Island
  • Work collaboratively and improve cooperation between the City & County
  • Give long overdue attention to Tigertail Beach, waterway protection & access, and other environmental areas

Isles of Capri
  • Stop using the entrance to Isles of Capri as a staging area for Collier Blvd road repairs
  • Take ACTION on long overdue drainage issues and ensure culvert completion between the bays

  • Tackle drainage issues EVERYWHERE in District 1… normal rains should NOT flood communities & homes as extensively as they do
  • Have regular Townhall meetings in EVERY area of District 1... I will bring the Commissioner to the people!
  • Ensure District 1 has the most Experienced & Qualified Commissioner in the seat!
We continue to have a PERFECT record…
Receiving EVERY endorsement from EVERY organization who conducted interviews!
I'm proud to have recently earned the additional endorsement of The Hispanic Vote of Southwest Florida, a non-partisan group focused on informing and engaging the Hispanic community on voting and the local political process. Board members Carmen Salomé, Silvia Hasak, Rafael Lopez, and others in their organization are strong leaders for our community, and I look forward to working with them.
With friends, fellow candidates, & patriotic public servants
