That’s what former longtime Riviera Beach Mayor Thomas A. Masters is saying about the man who beat him politically in 2019 and is currently in that office, Ronnie L. Felder. The former elected official who held the seat for 12 years made the remarks at a recent Riviera Beach City Council meeting. “I said it because he’s never disrespected me,” said Bishop Masters, who is now the International Ambassador for the World Conference of Mayors. “He’s a good man. Always has been. I like what he’s doing in our community, particularly for our seniors and youth. He’s the best candidate to continue to move our city forward.” Indeed, there are several other announced candidates already in the race, which will be held March 8, 2022. Just not Bishop Masters.
And this just in: on February 19, Bishop Masters interviewed Mayor Felder. On social media. Even though Bishop Masters has two radio shows, on WMBX 102.3 FM and on WJNO 1290 AM. “They don’t allow discussions about politics,” the Bishop said, “but I don’t consider this politics. He’s about service to his community.” So, tune in. Interesting. It happened at his church. Click here to do so.
