Commissioner Tom Powers held his mayoral kickoff party at Blue Moon Fish Company Monday night where almost every Coral Springs city commissioner could be found, including the current mayor.
Powers, who has served on the city commission since 2008, is a retired Arizona State Police Officer who moved to Florida. He also served as vice mayor from 2012 to 2014. Currently, Vincent Boccard, who is serving as Mayor, will be term limited in 2014 and cannot run again.
Brian Powell, head of the Fire Union Local 3080 said, “The looks of the city are changing and property values are on the rise. Without question this is due to the commission, and Tom’s relentless involvement in the community.”
The evening also marked Powers birthday where he told the 100 supporters in attendance that not only was he was born in 1957, he was celebrating his 57th birthday.
“I am happy to support Tom and I think he’ll make an excellent mayor,” said former Mayor Scott Brook. “He’s done a wonderful job on the commission.”
Powers is the only candidate who has filed for the seat.
