While I will be the first to admit that thee district could be doing much more, it is not accurate to say that the Conservation District is a “small” agency. In fact the district serves as the liaison between the federal, state, local government and land owners/ land users. Palm Becah Counties Conservatioin District is also home to the area office of the USDA and The FL Department of Agriculture.
It is true that conservation districts nationwide do not hold regulatory and taxing authority. This is why it is my intention to forge collaborative partnerships with the agencies that do have these powers. These agencies include, The Palm Beach School Board, Property Appraisers Office, County Commission and local municipalities. All of these agencies have new elected leaders who are willing to make Palm Beach a cleaner and greener place to live, work and play. I have already cultivated these relationships and will put them to good use when elected.
