Lifelong Hollywood resident and local attorney, Josh Levy, is running for Mayor of Hollywood.
“I want to make Hollywood a great place to live, enhance the business corridors and brighten the neighborhoods,” said Levy.
He emphasizes the importance of working with the Broward County School district to improve the city’s public schools. Levy would like to see the development of K-8 schools in Hollywood. He believes because of Hollywood’s location, businesses would benefit by locating to the City. And he wants to promote the City’s advantages to corporations because more businesses in the City will mean more tax revenue that can be put toward municipal improvements. He would like to see more efforts to promote the City’s healthcare and marine industries. “We need more economic growth in the City,” he said.
Levy is also very concerned about the rise in sea level and wants to take steps to protect residents and beach front properties from much higher tides and the general increase in sea levels.
Levy said his experience as a member of the Planning and Development Board as a president of the Hollywood Hills Civic Association and as an attorney have given him the experience necessary to being a good mayor for Hollywood.
“It’s time to take action in Hollywood. It’s time to improve neighborhoods. It’s time to promote and support our public schools so we can continue to attract and retain families in our city. It’s time to get things done for our residents, to protect our property values and reduce city taxes and fees through new economic development opp opportunities. It’s Hollywood’s time to shine and I will be the mayor with the energy and skills to take us there,” he said.
Election day is November 8, 2016.
