INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - The special district charged with taking the offensive on a prolific pest, has three candidates vying for one seat.

Two challengers, Thomas Lureau and Charles Sembler II, are in the race against Indian River County mosquito control district commissioner, incumbent David Foster.

This article will feature Mr. Lureau.

Thomas Lureau

Mr. Lureau is a businessman who has owned Arby's fast food restaurant in Vero Beach for more than 20 years.

His primary reasons to run for election this year are to commit to the public a level of fiduciary responsibility, due diligence and integrity to the mosquito control board.

He previously had experience in developing systems in finance and business for truck routing for interstate commerce and some government contracting for installing communications systems in Europe and South America.

Mr. Lureau believes the district as a whole needs better communication with the public, needs to cut back on spending and even consider if the board itself is needed. He said other counties are combining duties, so to be responsible the board should consider if they are critical to the district.

If elected, Mr. Lureau wants to keep a close rein on where funds are spent to make sure they are spent wisely and spending them is in the best interest of the community, who funds to district through taxes.
