Letter: Remembering Margate’s most concerned citizen Letter: Remembering Margate’s most concerned citizen To the editor:

I would like to give recognition and pay respect to a long-time Margate resident whose name frequently appeared in this paper while voicing her opinion on one of the issues about which she felt so strongly.

She could be found every Sunday in the last pew of Blessed Sacrament Church attending Mass, and on the first and third Thursday of every month you could find her at the Margate City Commission meeting.

Rarely was there a meeting at which she did not speak. Whether you agreed with her or not, you could not deny the fact that she was passionate, and oftentimes relentless about the topic on which she was focusing.

One of the last things she said to me was, “I’m not giving up,” and I truly believed her.

I was not fortunate enough to have her as a teacher, but I am very fortunate to have known her for the past 10 years.

Margate has lost its most “concerned citizen,” but she will not be forgotten. Rest in peace, Ann Pancoast.

Lisa McLaughlin

Chief Finance Officer
