Today, two-term Commissioner and community activist Roy Gold announced his candidacy for Mayor of Coral Springs. Gold, a longtime Coral Springs resident and countywide environmental and education advocate, is the first to declare for this seat.

“It has been gratifying serving the citizens of Coral Springs over the past five years, ” said Commissioner Gold, who also chairs several City and County committees and organizations that focus on providing responsive and efficient local government, community sustainability and citizen involvement. “My experience on the commission has given me great insight into what we need to do in these pivotal years to continue to make Coral Springs the most desirable location to live, work and raise a family.”

Just today, Commissioner Gold picked up support from prominent state and local officials including State Representative Ari Porth, North Lauderdale Mayor Jack Brady, Tamarac Mayor Beth Talabisco, and Parkland Commissioner Jared Moskowitz.

“These are challenging times requiring strong leadership and a commitment to following a vision, ” said Gold. He added that Coral Springs was the first local government in the United States to receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. “I am hopeful the citizens of our fine City share my commitment to public service. There is no question, our Commission, staffers and employees all share a common vision, focusing on earning the trust and confidence of our citizens every day.”

Commissioner Gold, who is also a business owner, says he is extremely proud of several other City accomplishments since he has been in office including strengthening the relationship between the City and local businesses. One example of this is the two-phase modifications to our sign code and another is the potential partnership with business leaders to make it more beneficial to build LEED/Silver [energy efficient] buildings in Coral Springs Park of Industry, which will help attract more jobs, leverage responsible sustainable development, while respecting the environment.

Also top-of-mind is the new and redeveloped Mullins Park Public Safety Buildings with our Communication Center and our currently being-built LEED silver-certified fire station. “The citizens voted for these projects, said Gold. “They will all contribute toward a better more energy efficient and safer community, something residents have told us is a priority.”

Commissioner Gold has taken a leadership role in ensuring that all Coral Springs children receive a quality education through his past involvement in The District Advisory Council, as a leader of North Area and as Chairman of the Coral Springs Principal Education Committee.

Community beautification has always been a focus for Gold, who chairs the city’s Neighborhood and Environmental Committee. “We are committed to a pedestrian-friendly community with lots of trees, sidewalks, bike paths, streetscapes and linear parks,” concluded Commissioner Gold.

Gold has filed the required papers at the City Hall and opened up his campaign account to run for Mayor.

The mayoral race will occur on November 2, 2010.
