Nick Sortal: The right pick for Plantation mayor 

 

 I’d love to become Plantation’s mayor.

I’ve been elected twice to the Plantation City Council since 2018. When someone has a question, they are often told to call Nick Sortal. You know I listen and get results. 

And that’s just one reason I’m the right person to be mayor.

I have an introductory essay below, but before that I have several items that you can visit quickly:

Plantation election information

I’d love to become Plantation’s mayor.

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 – the 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.

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.

I love listening and solving people’s problems.

The No. 1 request is to put the brakes on apartment construction.

“People are vocal about it. To truly be a public servant, I must listen to the people.”

Other areas I plan to address as mayor are short-term vacation rentals, code enforcement and a cumbersome permitting process.

Key on my radar is ensuring that the police and fire departments keep pace with the city’s growing needs.

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

IN TOUCH WITH THE COMMUNITY

I have studied every aspect of the city and communicate daily with department heads, such as the police chief, parks director and building director. A former South Florida Sun-Sentinel journalist, I research all sides of an issue and act with integrity.

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 attend 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.

I have attended 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?

“We have a ton of talented city employees. The buck will stop with me, but I will respect the abilities of people who have experience in their roles. I can’t wait to get started.”

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.
 
 Please support me with your time, your vote and / or your donation and allow me the privilege to continue in public service.
