I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving with a day full of family, food, and football. The holiday
season brings a much-needed break from our usual routines. I look forward to this time of the year
when we can celebrate traditions and make new memories with family and friends. I can’t wait for my
three Gators—Matt, David, and Lexi to come home for the holidays. I wish you and yours a wonderful
Our community holds many fantastic events for everyone to enjoy. Parades, holidays lightings, and
festivals—we’ve got it all. One event that my family and I look forward to every year is the Annual Coral
Springs Holiday Parade. The holiday season is also a time to give back. Every year my staff and I host a
Pizza Party and Gift Exchange at Family Central. It’s great seeing the kids light up when they open their
gifts and everyone getting in the holiday spirit. I encourage you to become involved and give back in
your own way, no matter how big or small the act of kindness.
November saw important elections within our Northwest Broward community. Congratulations to all
who ran for elected office. Whether you were elected or not, your commitment to furthering our
community and democracy is to be applauded. I look forward to working with all our newly elected
officials as we continue to represent all residents. Legislatively, I am continuing to push for the
implementation state wide of the recommendations from the MSD Public Safety Commission. We need
to make sure that these critical safety improvements are enacted throughout the entire state of Florida.
I continue to work with local, state, and national stakeholders to bring these changes to action.
I know many of us will be traveling this holiday season. This month, my District 3 Vlog will highlight
holiday travel through the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. FLL has many new
amenities that will make your travel experience less stressful and more convenient. Recently, FLL added
CLEAR security check-in for travelers. This adds to the options for getting through security in a timely
manner. The airport has also added more concessions and shopping, so you can pick out that last
minute gift before your flight. Check out the vlog on my social media or website to get the scoop.
