Commissioner Nate McLaughlin has established clear, important goals for our community. As a member of the Flagler County Commission he will continue to act in a decisive manner to ensure that a vision of common sense government is the standard by which the Commission functions. When first elected Nate embraced these goals, which guide his contribution to the commission’s work: 1. To place Flagler County in a stronger economic development position. Commissioner McLaughlin, District 4 Commissioner, has been a leader in helping our community through the economic downturn by recognizing the need for a stronger economic development plan, one that would create increased citizen involvement and a cooperation with the State-level plan for economic stabilization in order to better promote that “Flagler County is open for business.” 2. To make the County budget fiscally responsible. Nate is vigilant in overseeing how our tax dollars are managed and in working to keep Flagler County taxes as low as possible while maintaining the level of service that Flagler County residents have come to expect.

By seeking and gaining the cooperation and assistance from the U.S. Senate, the Governor’s office, and the Water Management District, Nate was able to bring drinking water to residents in need by providing a community well that ensures safe, quality drinking water to an overlooked area of the County. Additionally, this mission was made possible with the support of members of the Rotary Club of Flagler County, Kiwanis, Professional Women’s groups, and The Flagler County Chamber of Commerce. The support and cooperation Commissioner McLaughlin attained from the municipalities and many, many individuals clearly helped him achieve his vital goal to provide safe drinking water where it was needed.

The Consolidated Sheriff’s Operation Center, expanded jail, new more viable runway system, expanded west side fire and public safety services and the future expansion of library services to a growing population, Malacompra drainage system and Beach/Dune replacement have all proven his ability to balance the budget while being mindful of current and future needs of the citizens of Flagler County. *Launched in 1996, the Certified County Commissioner Program is a voluntary program of study designed for county commissioners to learn information and enhance skills relevant to their duties and responsibilities. Courses are taught by a team of experts, which includes university faculty, government officials, professional speakers, FAC members and FAC staff.
