NICK SORTAL, PLANTATION COUNCIL
GROUP 5

Welcome to my site. The buttons at the top give you more detail on my priorities and my background. I’d also like to point out the Nick’s Notes segment. I am using that as a blog-like device. This site had been my campaign page and I am now keeping it and will convert it into a page to serve the residents. (That process might take awhile, and take some tweaks. Be patient.)
 
Thanks to all of those who voted for me. Our city is in a time of transition and I’m very excited to be a part of it.

NICK SORTAL, MEMBER PLANTATION COUNCIL
GROUP 5

Welcome to my site. The buttons at the top give you more detail on my priorities and my background. I’d also like to point out the Nick’s Notes segment. I am using that as a blog-like device. So far, I have filed my thoughts about social media, sober homes, my experience taking the Plantation Citizens’ Police Academy course, and others.
 
The slogan for my campaign was MOVE FORWARD, and that had multiple meanings. I think we can move forward in many aspects of our city just by raising our expectations and refocusing our resources. I also think I’d be able to help the council move forward given my ability to see problems as they are developing and cut them off at the pass.
 
 Our city is in a time of transition. Our longtime mayor has retired and three of us are new on the council. I want to be a fresh face with a bright mind and a great heart.
