By Mayor Michael Udine
In November, I was honored to be sworn in as Broward County Mayor. I look forward to serving as both County Mayor and Commissioner for District 3, moving Broward in a positive direction for all residents. My priorities include supporting job creation in diverse industries, protecting our environment, making sure resources are allocated to increase public safety, and working toward a Broward County that is a model for the nation.
Broward County hosted the 6 Annual Florida International Trade and Cultural Expo (FITCE) at the Broward County Convention Center in November. Representatives from over 60 countries and over 2,000 attendees were there to learn about international business opportunities that are available for local businesses. Broward is open for business and ready to connect with the world!
Broward County’s Cultural Division will be hosting workshops on December 7 for local artisans to learn how to apply for the brand-new Artist Support Grant Program! Grants provide direct funding to local artists. To learn more and register, please visit Broward.org/Arts. The deadline to apply is December 17.
Looking for a forever furry friend? Broward County Animal Care and Adoption will be joining the City of Tamarac at the Annual Paws and Claus event on December 11 from 10 AM-12 PM at the Gary B Jones Park for People and Pups. If you are ready for the responsibility of a new family member, then come check out this great event. If you can’t make it, please visit broward.org/Animal to find the perfect pet for your family!
The holiday season is in full swing, and I am looking forward to celebrating with family, friends, and neighbors from near and far. From making holiday crafts at the library, seeing the light show at Tradewinds Park, and parades and tree and menorah lightings throughout the community, this December will be very special. As we are in the season of giving, let us remember those in our community who may be experiencing hardship by doing whatever we can to help and bring holiday cheer. From my family to yours, I wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Kwanzaa, and a wonderful New Year! Here’s to 2022!
The top priority for my staff and I is staying connected with the residents of District 3. We are available by phone, email, and social media. Reach me at MUdine@Broward.org or my office at 954-357-7003. Follow @CommissionerMichaelUdine on Facebook and @MichaelUdine on Twitter or Instagram to receive important updates and see what is happening in our community. Let’s connect!
