Sherry, I am so happy to support you. Best wishes for your election as a Miami Beach commissioner on November 5th. I have enjoyed knowing you over the many years you have been involved in city affairs and Zoning Board chair. You have been a dedicated activist. With your knowledge, sense of humor, and direct approach to solving situations, you will be a real asset to the commission.
Let me know how I can help!
Congratulations my beautiful friend, whatever support you need please let me know!

Sherry Roberts has paid her dues to the community. She has been a stellar board member -- and now chair -- of the Zoning Board of Adjustment, a commitment that takes time, thoughtfulness, and energy. She is active in her temple, on the chamber of commerce, and was a condominium president. Her persona is unique -- she is a philanthropist and businesswoman who cares for residents and will be there for us. And so I urge you to vote for her. She can be trusted to fight for all of us, with an honesty and integrity that has been sorely lacking in our city of late.
I am writing to encourage you to take a look at the candidacy of Sherry Roberts, who is running for a spot on the Miami Beach Commission.
Sherry is one of those people who has spent years in service of our community, including chairing the Board of Adjustments, very ably I must add.
As you know I have championed resident rights for awhile now, feeling that our concerns are generally placed far behind the needs of tourists, developers, and other business people on the city's list of priorities. Resident quality of life takes a back seat to creating more and more revenue. While revenue is important to help keep taxes in check, there needs to be balance when setting the city's priorities and decision making.
I believe that Sherry understands that. Her integrity is beyond reproach. She will be fearless in doing the right things for our citizens, regardless of what might be more popular choices.
Sherry will be sending you some information outlining her experience and platform. Please take a thoughtful look at it. Our city needs an entire dais filled with officials of her caliber. Many thanks, friends. Best wishes to all..... jane

I have been an activist in Miami Beach for many years and understand the importance of electing leaders with a diverse background as well as experience in how the city works and how to make business successful. I am pleased to endorse Sherry Kaplan Roberts whom I know to be just such a candidate. She has been in a committed relationship for over 30 years and has fought for the rights of seniors, women and members of the LGBT community. She has a fair and even hand as chair of the Zoning Board, dealing with respect to all who appear, both businesses and residents.
On a more personal note she embodies what I would like for every artist’s mom. She is passionate and generous in her support of the arts, particularly theater. David, her son, is a performer in New York and she beams when she talks about him. She has been with us as we fought to protect and define the Collins Park area and she is committed to protecting the character of each of the unique neighborhoods in Miami Beach.
I urge you to vote for her for Commissioner Group I.
True friendship is a treasure and I am proud to say I share this with Sherry Kaplan Roberts. We have worked together on a condo board in which I saw her devote hundreds of hours to bringing a building in serious disrepair to one that was praised for the state of the art renovation. I also stood with her when a few vocal owners viciously turned on her because of the costs. Even in defeat after very nasty personal attacks she showed grace and dignity. There is much to be learned about the character of a person in adversity as well as in good times and Sherry Kaplan Roberts has what it takes to be our next commissioner.
Along with her demonstrated leadership she really has a big heart. When my 80 year-old aunt came form Cuba, she had nothing. Sherry gave me a check to buy her some new clothes and shoes and said just to tell her America welcomes her. Sherry has a great sense of humor. Working with her is rewarding and even fun. Sherry will be great as out next commissioner.Barbara Grant
