What They're Saying
Government

Bob Margolis,
Mayor of Wellington

I applaud your efforts, through the Council of Community Associations, to strengthen and support our local communities -- homeowners, businesses, equestrians and charities. Your ideas are innovative and cutting-edge.

The information contained in your Website will be invaluable to viewers. Your innovative Business programs, in particular, will be of great benefit not only to businesses participating in these programs but also to homeowners and the community in general.

We believe the Council of Community Associations (CCA) will help further the goal of the Village Council to represent the interests of its constituents by improving communications between them. 

We welcome the opportunity to meet with the representatives of the CCA on a periodic basis to listen to and address their concerns in an effort to interact more closely with our constituents.

In addition to enhancing governance and constituent services, we believe that improved communications through CCA can help not only homeowners but also consumers in general, local businesses, equestrian activities, and local charities.

Thank you for helping us formulate and achieve these goals.

 

Paul Schofield, Wellington Village Manager

Organizations such as the Council of Community Associations serve a real need in providing a voice for both individual neighborhoods and larger communities. This group represents neighborhoods and their residents interests.

Often community associations are the only groups to provide the balancing viewpoints that public officials need to hear during the decision making process. We are all better served when all interests are represented and when our citizens feel their voice is both heard and important.

Thank you for your efforts.

 

John Greene, Wellington Councilman


Thank you for your email and for understanding the position of this council...I fully support the equestrian and business community. Your ideas are right on target and they promote a positive attitude toward the Wellington lifestyle.
 
It will be refreshing to work with an organization who truly understands how to effectively achieve results, which benefit the entire community. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly if you need any assistance.

Thank you for taking on this initiative and I look forward to working with you!

 

Anne Gerwig,
Wellington Councilwoman

I have been looking around your website and am impressed with the information that you provide. I am interested in what we can do to promote Wellington and our local events and features.

 

Melissa McKinlay,
County Commissioner

The Grapevine is doing a wonderful job connecting communities throughout the District so that the region can have a more unified voice. There are powers in numbers when it comes to advocating for the needs of our community and I believe supporting the Grapevine in developing this voice is essential.

Also, the Grapevine and local media should be promoting local businesses so that we can encourage patronage by our residents to help these businesses succeed.

 

Joseph Abruzzo, State Senator

I have explored your website and reviewed your suggestions on how we can work together to provide improved services and benefits to the communities within Palm Beach County.

I support your efforts to use the many features of your website to help achieve these goals in cooperation with the several Chambers of Commerce in the County.

Please keep me apprised of any recent developments.

 

Tom Wenham, former Mayor of Wellington

I have watched the growth of [your Newsletter] over the past ... years, and I would like to commend you on an excellent and most professional publication. I think you have done a great job in representing the interests and concerns of your readers you have been a powerful VOICE on their behalf.

As Mayor, I read your Newsletter regularly to better understand your readers needs, and I know that other Councilmembers also read it carefully and respect it

 

Ted Deutch,
US Congressman

The Grapevine is an excellent tool to keep the citizens of Wellington connected and informed. It is vital that citizens speak out and communicate with each other about the issues of the day. The Grapevine can help my efforts by continuing to keep citizens informed and by hosting town hall meetings and other community gatherings where elected officials and citizens can exchange ideas.

The Grapevine's Recommended Businesses program will provide an invaluable service for POA homeowners. Members will have access to a source/data base of merchants or suppliers that have provided a high level of service other members feel comfortable recommending.

This should be a win-win service for consumers and for the listed businesses because both good service and value will be rewarded. As a result, the level of service in the community will be enhanced overall, but only if we support the program by providing the recommendations needed to allow it to reach its full potential.

Andrew Carduner, President of the Council of HOA Presidents, Director of the POA of the Palm Beach Polo and Country Club, and President of the Oak Tree Villas HOA

 

The Palm Beach Grapevine is an invaluable tool for residents and HOAs in Palm Beach County AND also for governmental agencies, businesses and community groups. The wealth of information provided on this Website is impressive and not otherwise available “under one roof.”

I will recommend it to the homeowners in the Palm Beach Polo Property Owners Association, and to the residents of Windsor Way Home Owners Association.

George R. Tauber
Director, Palm Beach Polo POA
President, Windsor Way HOA
 

Your Website looks great. It is a terrific resource for any community.  I would definitely use it to look for coupons and community events.  I particularly like the Equestrian Center. Congratulations on the obviously huge amount of work and thought that has gone into it

The Recommended Businesses program will be a very valuable service for ALL homeowners. They will be looking at and relying on -- the Listings when choosing a merchant or supplier.

 

This is a terrific benefit, both for consumers and for the listed businesses. Now, good service and value will be rewarded. As a result, the level of service in the community will be enhanced overall.

 

I am sure that our homeowners will embrace the new Grapevine programs because they fill a need that has long existed. Homeowners crave this type of information. The Recommended Businesses program will be greatly relied on by homeowners in their buying decisions because the tight screening procedures will weed out shills and provide the highest level of objectivity. The Concierge program will bring our residential community a level of service never before available and greatly enhance our social fabric.

 

The new Grapevine programs are terrific. They offer a tremendous array of benefits to homeowners at no cost truly a win-win situation. They will no doubt greatly enhance our quality of life here.

Excellent Website. Very supportive of the equestrian community .The range, organization and presentation of information for equestrians is most impressive. Equestrians should be visiting the Grapevine often to benefit from all it offers."

Nancy Later, 2010 Equestrian of the Year, Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medalist with the U. S. Dressage Federation

 

Your ideas sound very exciting and useful to the equestrian community, so we really appreciate this opportunity to get your support!

Jessica Newman, Executive Director, JustWorld International

 

The Grapevine looks like a super useful tool and will be a very popular resource for equestrians!  Great work!

Caitlin Demaree-Dyer, Media Coordinator, JustWorld International

 

This is such a great idea!  I can think of lots of ways to use it, and I want to sign up right now!

I think #1 is our best option, and then I can include a reference to the service in the Palmensan.  That ought to take care of the people who don't have email addresses and get their Palmensan by mail.

Molly Leban,
Palm Beach Mensa Newsletter

 

"I should have first checked the listings in the Grapevine, and will now do so. Checking Google with lots of cross references on each listing was excessive work.

In addition, you offer a lot of information on a variety of subjects."

Julia R. Hindle
Palm Beach Mensa

 
Community Leaders

The below comments apply specifically to the founder and publisher of the Palm Beach Grapevine regarding previous publications, some of which were precursors of this website.
Professional

Sidney Kess,CPA, Attorney, renowned author and lecturer; selected as Most Influential Practitioner for 2006 by CPA Magazine, recipient of the AICPA Distinguished Lecturer Award and Special Recognition Award, and of the Distinguished Accredited Estate Planner Award.

I have known and worked with Bob Behren for over 30 years as he created numerous professional publications and products, all of which were very successful. He is the most innovative and creative mind in the profession, having a vision that can move the profession forward and break new ground for professional practice. In short, he is the ultimate winner when it comes to understanding and meeting the needs of his profession, sometimes even before the profession is aware of these needs!

 

Don Alexander, former Commissioner, Internal Revenue Service, B.A. LL.B. (Harvard, Magna Cum Laude), LL.D.

I have worked with Bob Behren in the past and I think most highly of him.

 

Stuart Kessler, past Chairman of the American Institute of CPAs, Senior Tax Partner in the CPA firm of Goldstein, Golub, Kessler & Company, past President of the New York State Society of CPAs and its Foundation of Accounting Education, and recipient of the Distinguished Service Award of both the AICPA and the NYS Society of CPAs.

Bob Behren has been a respected educator for more than 30 years. During this period, he was a positive influence on those who studied under him, including two of my partners. His extensive writings and publications in the financial area have greatly benefited both professionals and the general public. I consider Bob to be of the highest integrity and to have one of the top financial minds in the country.

 

Rick Kravitz, President, Panel Publishers ( subsequently promoted to a top executive position with Wolters Klowers)

I consider Bob Behren to be one of the top financial experts in the country today. Prior to my becoming President of Panel Publishers, a leading financial and legal publisher, I had the privilege of working closely with him for several years as his assistant in publishing financial newsletters and magazines. This experience has been invaluable to me in achieving my current position.

 

Marie M. Ashdown
Executive Director, Musicians Emergency Fund

Bob Behren has served as President of Musicians Emergency Fund, Inc. (MEF), since 1992.  He was elected to the position by unanimous vote of the Board of Directors in a time of fiscal and administrative crisis for the foundation.  The turnaround under his guidance has set new standards for leadership in the non-profit industry. 

During his tenure Bob has more than tripled MEF’s principal, resulting in creative programming for musicians that has gained national attention while carefully fulfilling the corporate mandate.  His relationship with individual members of the Board of Directors has attracted professional members who express their privilege to work with him.  His integrity is unassailable and his guidance firm, accurate and cooperative.  The foundation has flourished under his leadership. 

My personal relationship with Bob Behren has been one of the most constructive of my career.  His patience is memorable and my admiration for him has, through the years, increased on every personal and professional level.  He has the unique quality of inspiring his colleagues to work beyond their ability while guiding and inspiring their potential.  It is a distinct pleasure to have a mentor of such stature. 

It is not a difficult task to praise Bob's qualities; it is only difficult to list their impressive extent.

I was getting [your Newsletter] for a time via email. But I haven't received the newsletter in a while. Would you please make sure I'm on your mailing list? I find the newsletter is an important way to keep up with what's happening in Wellington and Palm Beach Polo in particular.
