As your City Commissioner I worked hard to improve our quality of  life including keeping property taxes low, enhancing public safety, improving the look of the city and making our community even more family friendly.  I am running for Mayor to build on those accomplishments and continue to make our city a special place to live, work and raise a family.

I’m a husband, father, businessman, colleague, life-long volunteer, community leader, and I work for you.

I will work to make Coral Springs a fantastic place to live and will continue to be responsive to your concerns and issues.

Janet and I have raised our family and made great friends here while enjoying the benefits, services, and opportunities Coral Springs has to offer; great schools, government, parks, sports, and people.  I have been a valued leader with a strong sense of community, public service and experience working with residents, staff, committees and Commission members for the past 20 years. I have served as Commissioner and Vice-Mayor since my election in 2004.

I believe that a person’s life is not measured by the things you do, it’s measured by the things you do for others. I want to be your Mayor to continue to help Coral Springs face the challenges of the future.

When making this important choice for the future;                     Dedication,  Experience, Leadership and Results matter. My over two decades of hard work has served us well and in the future we need a trusted experienced  Mayor to lead our City Commission in unity, stability and thoughtful discussion to deal with the challenges and capatalize on the opportunities.

I humbly and respectfully ask for your support and vote.

Thank you,

Roy Gold

Community Leader

Roy Gold and his wife Janet have lived in Coral Springs for more than 30 years. Their kids attended our schools, played in our sports leagues, and Roy has done public service and worked tirelessly on sports teams, committees and boards for over tweny years making a difference for us, before he became a City Commissioner in 2004.  He has shown service and leadership for our City on the city, county, state, and even national levels, through his work with others at the Broward, Florida and National Leagues of Cities.

Business Leader

As an owner of Cambridge Diagnostics Products Inc., a 20,000 square foot medical manufacturing company, he has dealt with the issues that effect small business for decades. Roy understands business. And he understands the business of government. Before his first election, he was often the only citizen to speak at City Budget  hearings offering initiatiives to help the City.  As a Commission member, he has listen to us and has worked hard with the City Commission to refine the City Strategic Plan and make sure Coral Springs maintains its reputation for fiscal responsibility and stability – even in tough times like these.

Environmental Leader

Roy’s environmental record speaks for itself. He has made a commitment to protecting our land from overdevelopment by creating a park system that every Coral Springs family can enjoy. In 2003, CityLink named Roy “Best Citizen Environmental Activist” of Broward and Palm Beach counties, was the  Chair of Broward Beautiful and in 2008 the Marine Industries Association awarded him its “Award of Excellence” for his leadership on the Broward Waterway Cleanup in Coral Springs. As a Commissioner, Roy successfully pushed to establish ‘Sustainability’ as one of the core values articulated in the Coral Springs Strategic Plan and promoted the Tree Subsidy Program and the Tree Master Plan to help re-establish our valued tree canopy and beautiful look of the city that was damaged by Hurricane Wilma.
