RE-ELECT NICK SORTAL

 Plantation City

Council Group 5

 

He listens. He leads.

No one works harder.

 

 I hit the ground running after my election to Plantation City Council in November 2018 and I haven’t stopped. Check the Blog segment that shows how my activities have been an open book: I love keeping the public informed about what is going on in our city.
 
  So, what is there to tell? I’ve worked hard to improve our city’s relationship with the schools. I serve on the city’s Employee Pension Board. My peers elected me as council pro tem in 2019 and this year I am council president, meaning I run the meetings. And I work one-on-one with our residents almost daily, helping them through the city maze (something I want 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).
 
I filed for re-election early this year and since then have been asking people to PICK NICK! I go to every public event possible, to get a better feel for residents’ concerns. That means a lot of time at school award ceremonies, organizations such as the Plantation Chamber of Commerce and Kiwanis and, very importantly, neighborhood groups and HOAs. I’ve hit about 10, including Lauderdale West, Park East, Country Club Estates, Jacaranda Lakes, Bridgewater and Plantation Acres.
 
 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.
