Candidate's Statement

Candidate: Randall “Randy” Brodersen Office: Village of Estero Council - 4 I am a candidate for the position of Councilman for the newly created “Village of Estero”. I will campaign as a resident from District 4 within the Village boundaries. I believe that my work experiences will help and assist the other councilmembers in maintaining the high quality of living that Estero has come to recognize through the hard work of the ECCL and other groups. My wife, her mother and I moved into Country Creek in Estero in June of 2013 and are full-time residents. Prior to our move here, we lived in Punta Gorda (approximately 40 miles north) for 25 years. Shortly after moving here, I was asked to run for the Master Board here in Country Creek. I campaigned for the position and was elected to serve. Through the current board we have instituted a number of policies and suggestions for the betterment of the community. Employment Experience City of Punta Gorda – 1989 – 2013 • 24 years working at the City; Public Works Department • Public Works Supervisor – Canal Maintenance.

I would work to allocate sufficient revenues for reserves as the Village gets established, while helping to plan and implement a “Village Center” for Estero. The creation of “Advisory Committees” to carry on the work of the Estero Community Planning Panel (ECPP) and the Estero Design Review Committee (EDRC) is very important. I will work on getting appropriate economic development in order to keep taxes down and also to protect our environment through sound decision making. I am excited about being a part of our new “Village of Estero” and look forward to election day so we can make our plans come true.
