It’s unanimous: All 9 organizations

endorse Nick Sortal for city council

9-

 

He listens. He leads.

No one works harder.

 

 The vetting process for Plantation City Council Group 5 is unanimous: Every single organization that offered an endorsement chose incumbent Nick Sortal.
  
  The groups are diverse and varied: the Sierra Club, Hispanic Vote, Women’s March Broward, the Broward Teachers Union, Broward/Palm Beach Realtors, Plantation Police FOP 42, Plantation EMS 3080 and groups representing young voters and the LGBTQ+ community.
 
  Sortal is one of the few elected officials to participate in the Broward Water and Climate Academy, learning about environmental issues in our county. He also has worked to improve our city’s relationship with schools, reviving the Education Advisory Board, which has meant more conversations between school principals and the city.
 
 He shares a regular newsletter on Facebook, NextDoor and NickSortal.com.
 
 “I hit the ground running after my election in November 2018 and I haven’t stopped,” Sortal said. Check the Blog segment for activities and updates from his two years.
 
Sortal serves on the city’s Employee Pension Board and he works one-on-one with our residents almost daily, helping them through the city maze (something he wants to improve). Questions about water bills, bad neighbors (another priority), cracked sidewalks (call Public Works) and public safety (always call the police, they want to hear from you).
 
 “You placed your trust in me in November 2018 and I haven’t forgotten that. Every single day. This job has me fascinated, consumed, addicted and enamored with making a city I love even better. Please support me and allow me the privilege to continue in public service.”
