By Michael Udine, County Commissioner for District 3
The holiday season is here! Whether you are travelling “home” for the holidays, or having everyone come to your home, our community is getting in the spirit of the season. Broward County is doing everything it can to make this year special. From holiday tree lightings and parades in many cities to expanding our travel offerings at FLL we look forward to serving you and your family. If possible, please support one of the many toy drives throughout the community or a holiday food drive so everyone can have a great holiday season.
November meant the end of a long election season throughout our community. As the Broward County Commission Canvassing Board representative, I am proud of the transparent and fair election that was held. I would like to congratulate all who won and lost on a spirited campaign, and for participating in our democracy. Finally, I would like to congratulate the staff members and the Supervisor of Elections for a job well done. Their hard work led to Broward County being the first county in the State of Florida to report results, and a full count came very quickly after.
On November 29th, I wrapped up my year long term as the Mayor of Broward County. Don’t worry, I am not going anywhere and will still be your County Commissioner for District 3! I am proud of all the things we accomplished together this year. From upgrades to infrastructure, some of the largest economic development numbers in recent memory and creating a focus on the health of our community, we accomplished a lot. As your Mayor, we also welcomed several world class events such as F1 Racing, the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, and we received word that we will host the 2023 NHL All Star Game. I look forward to continuing to serve you, and I thank you for allowing me to serve you as your Mayor.
Finally, my family and I would like to wish everyone who celebrates a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Kwanzaa. No matter which holiday you celebrate I hope you enjoy a nice break, and time with those you care about. See you in the New Year!
