Nick Sortal will be an outstanding mayor.

 

He listens. He leads.

No one works harder.

 

 As Nick begins his campaign for mayor lets look back at his two successful runs for city council. Every single organization that offered an endorsement in 2020 chose  Nick Sortal.
  
 The groups were 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. “What you have seen from me as a council member, you’ll see as a mayor.” Check the Blog segment for past activities and updates.
 
Sortal served 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).
 
 “Please support me with your time, your vote and / or your donation and allow me the privilege to continue in public service,” Nick says.

We need a leader who communicates.

 

 

I’d love to become Plantation’s mayor, and have filed to run in this fall’s election.

As anyone who has followed me on Facebook, NickSortal.com or other social media knows, I think our city is best when everyone is involved. That’s why I share as much information as possible as often as possible with you residents. I”ll never forget: You pay my salary.

 That way of thinking will continue when I become mayor I want to improve our web site so vital city updates are put out there immediately: You’ll then decide whether you like what’s happening or not, and I’ll encourage you to respond.

  I’ve been studying and training for this position since first elected to city council in 2018. No one has worked harder. I’m the only person ever in Plantation to attend Level I and Level II League of Cities trainings. That’s where I have picked up valuable “hard skills” and borrow from best practices in all 411 Florida municipalities. “We’ve always done it that way” and institutional knowledge do carry some weight in Plantation, but if other cities have great ideas, why not borrow them?

For those who don’t know me, welcome! There’s plenty about me on the links at the top of the page.

I’ve worked hard to improve our city’s relationship with our schools. And most satisfying, I enjoy working one-on-one with our residents almost daily, answering questions about water bills, cracked sidewalks and public safety..

I go to every public event possible, for a first-hand look at residents’ concerns. That means school award ceremonies, organizations such as the Plantation Chamber of Commerce and Kiwanis and, very importantly, neighborhood groups and HOAs.

Moving forward, I will push for economic aid for small businesses and residents as we recover from Covid-19, urge modernization of our city website for water billing and permitting and tighten code enforcement.
You placed your trust in me — twice! — and I have not forgetten that. Every single day.

I am fascinated, consumed, addicted and enamored with making a city I love even better. That’s why I want to be your mayor.
