Scott Singer Announces Candidacy for Mayor of Boca Raton

 

Scott Singer, a Boca Raton City Council Member and Chairman of the Community Redevelopment Agency, announced his candidacy for Mayor of Boca Raton. Singer, a small business owner and lawyer, was first elected to the Council in 2014, and then re-elected in March 2017 with 71% of the vote.

“Scott Singer is a dedicated public servant who is genuinely committed to making sure our residents have their voices heard,” said County Commissioner Steven Abrams. “Scott is a leader who listens and makes decisions based on what is best for the entire community,” continued Abrams, who was Mayor of Boca Raton from 2001-2008.

In his three years on the City Council, Scott pushed forward common-sense proposals:

  • Long-term infrastructure planning
  • Preservation and enhancement of green space
  • Increasing transparency and ethics standards
  • Expanding economic development efforts
  • Reducing red tape for small businesses

“My priority on the City Council has always been to listen and respond to the needs of the residents,” said Scott Singer. “That’s why I’m proud to have spoken directly with thousands of residents through my regular series of in-person and telephone town hall meetings. I look forward to having an opportunity to continue these conversations as Boca’s next Mayor.”

Council Member Singer serves on the State Attorney’s Sober Homes Task Force, the Palm Beach County Independent School Surtax Oversight Committee, and the Land Use and Economic Development Legislative Policy Committee of the Florida League of Cities. Singer has served on a variety of other governmental, non-profit, and volunteer boards.
