The summer sun is beginning to set. I hope you were able to enjoy your time off. The lazy days of summer have been far from lazy for your Commission and Staff. We have been extremely busy preparing for the upcoming year. Over the summer months, your Commission and Staff have been working on a myriad of projects, some of them long-standing, that have significant impacts on our city well into the future.
In the midst of all this, I wanted to take some time to just say “Thank You!”
I am deeply honored to be elected to “serve” as Vice Mayor of this great City- West Park. It has been the beginning of a new era… The City of Positive Progression. And I am privileged to have your support, your confidence, and your expectations. I am also filled with a sense of excitement and optimism as we continue to manage our magnificent City. I am aware of the serious responsibility which has been bestowed upon me and I continuously accept this responsibility willingly.
Our vision is simple: Our residents deserve to live in the best City in Broward County. We as your Commission will work with staff and youthe community- to achieve this vision. That means strong schools, safe streets, clean communities, economic development, and beautiful parks. It means access to services and programs. It means quality services for seniors and youth. It means a rich social and cultural life through various activities in our parks. It means a vibrant economy. It means true inclusion – a seat at the table for all. It means taking advantage of our truly unique assets-our lakes. In no way do I consider these accomplishments as being achieved exclusively by the Commission. Rather, these accomplishments are and will be achieved by all the residents who give us their time and talent to serve on committees; by all of the residents who provide their input; and by our very talented Staff who provide guidance as well as implementing our decisions with excellence.
I refer to this three-pronged partnership of COMMISSION, RESIDENTS, AND STAFF as a triangle of achievement… as a triangle of togetherness. Many of you are responsible for selecting me to “serve” you… yet all of you are responsible for the success of our city.
I thank all residents of West Park who have supported, encouraged, and helped us through the process. I look forward to serving and working with you, our beloved residents, to address the challenges that face our great City.
Remember to contact me at City Hall with your ideas, suggestions or concerns. I represent you and appreciate your input into the continued success of our beloved city. I can be reached at (954) 889-4164 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
