3 Commissioner Richard Rosenzweig
and Future Goals
a commissioner since 2013,
I have been working tirelessly for our Deerfield Beach community and
District 3 residents. I am running in order to continue representing
District 3 and the city in the upcoming March 14th election.
am a member of the Broward County League of Cities
and Florida League of Cities. Through these organizations, my focus
has been on Deerfield Beach safety and consumer protection, by addressing
problems caused by unlicensed contractors. I was instrumental in overhauling
the permitting process and code enforcement. While still in need of
further improvement, the changes in city functions have decreased the
time required to obtain permits, and ensured that more responsive individuals
are in place to serve Deerfield Beach citizens.
a member of the Metropolitan Planning Board
(MPO), I have worked on many issues of concern to our residents. These
include the Sawgrass Extension and public transportation operations.
Traffic congestion is an ever-increasing problem for commuters. I have
worked with the MPO and Broward County officials to address transportation
issues and push for the most sensible long-term solutions.
have been a fierce advocate for Deerfield Beach
citizens in dealing with their city problems. For example, I helped
correct an issue involving residents having difficulties with satellite
dish installations and related city codes. My mediation between the
government offices ensured that residents kept their equipment and uninterrupted
satellite programming. In representing the entire district, I have also
addressed Crystal Lake pollution caused by the homeless population.
As your commissioner, I have always been a hands-on problem solver,
taking calls from people and working with numerous constituents in order
to find solutions and overcome their tough obstacles.
area I am proud of is my ability to facilitate communication
between district residents and the Deerfield Beach government. I have
attended most Recreation Committee, Master Management and COOCVE meetings,
as well as association meetings in the Crystal Lake neighborhood. In
addition, I hold regular District 3 meetings and listen to the concerns
and suggestions of community members. This ongoing district communication
has allowed me to alert city departments of actions needed in the community.
a smart growth proponent,
I have worked with several government departments to promote tourism
and responsible industry, while insisting Deerfield Beach retains its
beautiful and unique character.
have sought to bring a calm, reasoned, voice to the commission
chamber, and work productively with the mayor, fellow commissioners
and city staff, in order to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
Scrupulous about personal and professional integrity, I have attended
all available trainings on ethics, provided by the Broward County Office
of the Inspector General (OIG) and Florida League of Cities.
have been honored to serve as your commissioner
since my election in 2013. My continuing efforts will build on these
activities during my time as commissioner. As our city continues to
grow, I will work to promote responsible growth, while working through
the challenges involved in maintaining the very special qualities of
our Deerfield Beach community. I am very excited at the prospect of
continuing to advocate for community members and work on your behalf.
