Beach town's mayor becomes election issue

Commission candidate Sal Crimi wanted to reach more voters at Gull Harbor condominium, where he lives. He went door-to-door last week. That's against condominium rules.

The Gull Harbor Condominium Association on Monday filed a complaint asking a judge to stop Crimi. Rules involving candidates were improved this year, said property manager Liz Limroth, after she got 40 complaints of candidates going door-to-door last year. In this election, candidates are allowed to set up tables with literature during "meet the candidate" events.

"The only way rules and regulations are enforceable are through the courts," Limroth said. "He went door-to-door last Thursday and Friday. Residents called to complain." Crimi said no one complained to him. "The reason they're trying to restrain me is for political reasons," he said. "There's no other way you could see the voters."
