Why I am Running for District 1
Running for District 1 Commissioner is a natural progression of my over 20 year of public and community service for the citizens of Escambia County. I have served on the County’s Planning Board and the Santa Rosa Island Authority Board and in various senior management positions for groups ranging from the National Flight Academy and Naval Aviation Museum Foundation to the Florida Association of Local Housing Finance Authorities and the NW Florida March of Dimes.
The impact of the Navy Federal expansion, the development of OLF8 and the influx of nearly $60 million in RESTORE funds requires a leader with my long history of public service and proven success at problem solving, consensus building and a common sense approach to smart growth. My 10 years of experience on the County’s Planning Board give me the substantial experience you need to address the significant potential developments planned for District 1. It is critical that we plan for and accommodate the impact that the developments will have on current residents and business owners as well as the County.
My husband, Tod, and I have owned land in Nature Trail and are planning to build our home there. We are happy that we have commenced that process having selected a builder and hope to be in our new home by August.
Positive Leadership. Proven Results.
Karen has a history of fiscal responsibility as well as “turning around” organizations. Junior Achievement of Northwest Florida, March of Dimes, National Flight Academy, to name a few. Whether it’s working with volunteers or Boards of Directors, Karen’s proven ability to gather support and work with groups, large and small, makes her a necessity for communities, local and state governments.
