Candidate's Statement

Hello and Welcome to the Betty Jo Starke, Candidate for St. Lucie County Commission District 1; Republican, candidate info zone.

I believe the citizens of St. Lucie County deserve a County Commission that is responsive to their needs.

I believe in term limits.

Do you know me? I am a Florida native and have lived and served in St. Lucie County for 34+ years.I see my community neighbors and their needs.I live in District 1. I  support and shop at local businesses and have studied locally at IRCC, IRSC, UFL-IFAS, Harbor Branch,and Blackburn Center. My degree is in Earth Science with focus on Biology's ,Eco-Systems of Florida, Aquaculture, Humanities, and patient care. I speak Spanish and a little Creole. My real passion is History and Politics, although I must state that I am not a politician, but rather, a statesman. I have worked for small business and spent fifteen plus years providing customer service on-premise for a National Beverage Distributor locally. I have worked for St. Lucie County BOCC Mosquito Control for sixteen years and am familiar with the entire county layout. Along with my service career jobs, I have always been employed in food and beverage on all levels. I enjoy serving the public and bringing dignity to people.

As your next District 1 County Commissioner, I will make myself accessible and endeavor to solve your county service related issues. I believe in serving others and not seeking self enrichment, but rather to find reward in helping fellow citizens. You may have seen me in volunteer service through St. Lucie County Historical Commission, St. Lucie Historical Society, Spiritual Wellness, Food Bank or Sarah's Kitchen; Fraternal Organization, COS, REC, St. Lucie Republican Club, Poll Watcher, Recount Worker, Constitution Day, Truth in Textbooks, Tea Party, church activities or any number of things on a day to day level.

As your Commisioner, it will matter not to which party you belong , as I will serve all while representing our American values and preserving our rights and liberties and freedom.

I value our county from our pristine beaches and mangrove impoundments and their historical nature, our agriculural heritage and the growth of Aquaculture. I value the businesses that exist here in our county. They have invested their lives and fortunes creating jobs and paying the tax base that allows our government to exist. Government doesn't create, businesses do. We must not forget this and as your public servant I will not abuse this and will work to make your government interaction as streamlined and painless as possible.

I value our citizens of all ages. I would work and advocate to bring a new respect to our people by expanding programs through volunteerism and technical vocational schools where we all learn life skills, along with Civic pride and non-revisionist History, technical and vocational and financial skills as we live together while not being divided into categories as big government is fond of doing. I will help the workforce to be ready to fill the good jobs necessary to keep St.Lucie County great while not growing the tax burden we are under.

If you want to vote for the right choice for St. Lucie County Commission District 1- Betty Jo Starke, just make sure you are registered as a Republican  and vote for me in the Primary.  You may be any party affiliation to vote for me during the General Election in November. I am at your service. My contact info is available.Don't be a stranger- Sincerely- Betty Jo Starke.
