EUGENE D. BERRY

  • Why are you running for office and what qualities, training, experience and skills do you bring to this position?

For the past 32 years as your City Commissioner, I have demonstrated a commitment and dedication to this community. The unwavering love and understanding that I have for the people of this community are the two pillars that have guided me in my continuous service to this great city. Being born and raised in Florida City, as well as raising my children in the community makes my love and dedication unable to be compromised. The experience that I have gained in my years of service, gives me the knowledge to lead this city through any challenges that this community may face. Being that the citizens have entrusted me for eight consecutive terms, demonstrates their confidence and the vision that I have for our community. 

  • What are the 3 most important issues facing your community? For each concern, how do you propose to mitigate/improve/resolve the issue?

The three most pressing challenges that we face in our community are as follow: Crime, Jobs, and Quarterly Updates.

  • Addressing the issue of crime, we have hired more officers and have divided the city into zones to provide effective coverage. The more police presence we have should result in a reduction in crime.  Having more coverage will also aide in an attempt to cut down on response time. 
  • Bringing more businesses to our city will create more jobs, and provide an opportunity to lower taxes for our citizens. 
  • Following up on quarterly updates will allow the city council to identify areas of concern, and will allow us to gauge those problem areas every quarter. This will allow the council to address our most pressing issues in the community in a timely and effective manner.

I have been a Florida City Commissioner for 54 years.   There is lots of stuff going on in Florida City that I want to see finished.  Lots of businesses are coming in and I need four more years to finish my work.

  • What are the 3 most important issues facing your community? For each concern, how do you propose to mitigate/improve/resolve the issue?

There are no major issues in the City.  The City is doing well.   The Commission and Mayor are working well together and get along really well.  We need to keep this Commission together.

The Police Department is growing.   We have added officers and are working on a reserve officer program.

I have been a Commission for 54 years and will continue to take care of Florida City.
