By Agrippine Fadel
Michael Udine, the new mayor of Broward County, says his goal for next year is a healthy and sustainable Broward.
Udine was sworn in to his new post on Tuesday. He previously served as Deputy County Mayor and Mayor of Parkland. Once his one-year term has ended, his title will revert to a commissioner. District 4 Commissioner Lamar P. Fisher has been chosen as the next vice-mayor.
“Let’s work together to help our residents make better health choices and improve their fitness. Coming out of the pandemic, we need to focus on mental health. As a result, the nonprofit community will be stretched like never before, ”he said.
Udine said he also plans to focus on the financial health of residents.
“Jobs and employment are essential, as is the continued search for more affordable housing and better transportation. We need to develop more employment opportunities at all levels of the business across the county, ”he said. “My overall goal is to focus on the things that are successful for our county and allow all residents to thrive in a bright future. “
Udine said it was an honor to serve the residents of Broward County. As a practicing lawyer for over 25 years, he has served as Broward County Commissioner since 2016, representing Parkland, Coral Springs, North Lauderdale and Tamarac.
