Former councilman Charlie Wilson has stated he intends to run, as he moved into the city last September and made a point of letting his friends and rivals know he had established residency a year out from the qualifying period for the November 2014 ballot. Wilson, who first made the motion in 2009 to invite FPL to talk about purchasing Big Blue, recently founded the new Vero Beach Chamber of Commerce and has been an outspoken activist with regard to the fair assessment and prudent use of impact fees.

Former Vero Beach councilman Charlie Wilson, founder and president of the new Vero Beach Chamber of Commerce, appointed himself as chief crusader on impact fees a few years ago and though he hoped for even more sweeping reform, Wilson said the county's move marks significant progress.
"We are pleased with the progress and the reduced fees sorely needed by Vero Beach business for expansion and employee hiring but there is more to do," Wilson said.

Former political candidate Charlie Wilson, a director with Vero Beach's Asset Research and Recovery Inc., has been trying in recent months to get the commission to refund fees collected from his 128 clients between 1986 and 1999 in a district on the barrier island, stretching from Beachland Boulevard south to the Indian River-St. Lucie County line.
The commission had no further right to the money, Wilson argued, since it wasn't spent within the first six years the fees were collected.

About 600 barrier island residents are due a total of $1.1 million in old impact fees paid to Indian River County, according to former Vero Beach Councilman Charlie Wilson, who now is in the asset recovery business.
County staff, however, takes the position that no such refunds are due from the county.
Wilson has turned in 73 applications for refunds, which he said would net an average of $3,000 each for property owners in Vero's south beach and the unincorporated south barrier island.
When Wilson made his pitch to the county earlier this month, county staff said the project is "still needed" and a "still in the work program," but that the acquisition of rights-of-way from PNC Bank and Northern Trust are holding up the spending of the dollars.
"The fund has not been used in 13 years and all of a sudden we've got a plan to widen an intersection that's not even in our jurisdiction," Wilson said, noting that area is in the City of Vero Beach.
Wilson said the county has taxpayers' money squirrelled away in various funds, being used not necessarily for projects, but for inter-departmental borrowing and other nebulous government accounting functions. He formed a company, Asset Research and Recovery, headquartered near the airport in Vero Beach, to get that money back for people for a fee.
"It is very likely that average citizens could find it impossible to receive these funds on their own," Wilson said.
Wilson said "insiders" who know how to navigate the county system have received more than $3 million in impact fee refunds over the past 10 years, but that the average homeowner is at a disadvantage.
Wilson said some of the traffic impact fees he's researched go all the way back to the years 1985 through 1998, but he's mistaken, according to county officials.
Wilson asked commissioners to re-open the refund period to give the 600 residents he potentially represents a chance to get their money back.
Instead they have asked that their refund be given to charity," Wilson wrote in an update letter to the more than 500 beachside residents remaining who have not yet given him authorization to seek a refund.
"We think that that is a good idea so you now have the option of having any refund go in your name to a charity," he said, and included a form listing several local nonprofit groups and a blank option to designate a group.
