(LAUDERDALE LAKES) The City of Lauderdale Lakes elected 3 new members to join Commissioner Gloria Lewis and Beverly Williams on the Dias today during a standing room only installation service held in the Commission Chambers of the City of Lauderdale Lakes.
The City of Lauderdale Lakes installed the first woman Mayor, Hazelle P. Rogers on November 21, 2016. She joined the Dias along with new Commissioners Sandra Davey and Veronica Edwards Phillips. This election gives the City of Lauderdale Lakes an all-woman Dias and a smaller governing body—going from a 7-member Dias down to a 5-member Dias where there will now be a four member Commission and a voting Mayor.
Mayor Hazelle P. Rogers is no stranger to the City’s Dias. She served as a Commissioner in 1996 and as the Florida House of State Representatives for District 95 in 2008. “I am excited to be back in my City in this capacity. I look forward to working with my colleagues, and the City’s staff to continue to move the City forward,” said Mayor Rogers.
Newly elected Commissioner Veronica Edwards Phillips is a long-time resident who has served on several boards, and attended the LGA class to gain more knowledge of the daily operations of the City before pursuing a Commission seat. Her knowledge and dedication is certain to be an enhancement to the Dias. “I too, am excited to have this opportunity to serve community in this capacity,” said Phillips. “I do not take this role lightly and will do my very best to represent my neighbors, friends and family well.”
Newly elected Commissioner Sandra Davey is also a long time resident who has served as the Homeowners President for many years, she served on several boards and also took the LGA class for the City of Lauderdale Lakes. She has been a voice for the neighbors in her immediate community for years. “I am, and have always been a concerned resident in Lauderdale Lakes,” said Davey. “I am so proud to have this opportunity to serve my entire City.”
The City is looking forward to many exciting changes and developments under this new governing body. They have already hit the ground running; making changes to how the Commission meetings will be governed and asking for better understanding of a few of the ongoing projects in the City that are major concerns for the residents.
