WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 4, 2019 / — Keith James, city commissioner and mayoral candidate of West Palm Beach, announces his West Palm Beach Water Protection and Quality Plan to continually protect and ensure the quality of the city’s water supply.

Keith James has been a leader on West Palm Beach water issues since he was elected to the Commission in 2011. During the beginning of James’ tenure, West Palm Beach underwent a severe water crisis. James worked with Mayor Jeri Muoio and the administration to implement a series of plans to protect the city’s water supply.

Keith James also led the city’s fight in opposition to State Road 7 that would have jeopardized the city’s water supply at Grassy Waters Conservancy. Through James’ leadership on the Metropolitan Planning Organization and Transportation Planning Agency he served, sometimes as the sole vote, in opposition to the road. James is an honorary member of the Grassy Waters Conservancy.

James’ leadership on water issues can be seen through his record of accomplishments in the past 8 years.

Grassy Waters Preserve and our water supply. Others in this election have talked about
privatizing our city’s water.

James has consistently opposed any efforts to privatize West Palm Beach’s water supply.
