Palm Beach County Commissioner Robert Weinroth lives in Boca Raton but is weighing in on the anti-gay remarks Boynton Beach mayoral candidate Bernard Wright made about one of the other three mayoral candidates.
Wright in a 40-minute, Jan. 26 Facebook Live post last week, said that mayoral candidate and City Commissioner Ty Penserga aims to make Boynton Beach “a gay city,” along with other anti-transgender remarks.
Those comments, “could only be deemed bigoted, ignorant and disgusting,” Weinroth wrote, in a mini-editorial in Sunday’s Sun Sentinel.
Penserga is one of the few openly gay, elected public officials in Palm Beach County.
