Why am I running?
"I am running because I plan to utilize my experience, knowledge of the community, energy and commitment to serve the citizens of Lee County. Our County is on the cusp of major changes and I want to participate in that change.
Our small business owners and entrepreneurs face a cumbersome and bureaucratic processes that I will work to streamline. I will also make sure to address the needs of seniors, youth, the disabled and veterans.
Property owners are facing higher tax rates because of decisions made by our current Commission. I will be responsive and listen to taxpayers.
Our environment, which is the backbone of our restaurant and lodging industry, is being attacked by the oil business with permits to drill without regard to environmental issues. I will work hard to protect our aquifers and local waters from fracking and dirty discharges!
I believe we need to extend employment protections to include sexual orientation or identity, marital or familial status, age or political affiliation.
My work experience and community involvement make me uniquely qualified for the job of Commissioner. I look forward to putting my dedication and experience to work for the citizens of Lee County Florida." -Debbie Jordan
