Hello Franklin County Residents,
I’d like to introduce myself, my name is Madeline Nevarez and I’m running for Franklin County Commissioner District 5. I’d like to tell you about myself. I am a mother of 5, grandmother of 5, a wife, entrepreneur, strong willed & determined individual who is always ready to lend a helping hand. Our family had visited Carrabelle annually over the past few decades, and my husband and I are proud to call Franklin County home since 2005.
As an entrepreneur, I started my first business in 1988 in Tennessee, with it being a success I was able to expand & invest in other businesses over the years. I sold that business in 2003 when I decided to move my family to Franklin County. In 2013, my husband and I, along with 3 close friends started a company in Decatur, Al that involves detention services and supplies. This business is now in the top 10 for companies in this category on the East Coast.
Being an entrepreneur, I have gained experience & knowledge financially to run a successful business. I see Franklin County as a business, I know I can run it as such with your help and your continued support. Our local Government should be bringing in businesses that will employ residents for the long term and should be making money for profit for the Residents of Franklin County.
As your County Commissioner, I will work effortlessly for the people. I will make myself available to you when you need me. I will do my best to return calls and emails by the day’s end. I am running for this position to help our community grow, and I will do everything I can to help Franklin County succeed and prosper.
What I Can & Will Do For Franklin
My Top Priorities
My top priorities as your County Commissioner are to focus on transparency, accountability, ethics, and to create a healthy economic development for the people.
An Urgent Care facility that our community is in dire need of will be my top priority when I am elected for the people. I plan to negotiate with Sacred Heart to achieve a facility for our community. The County cannot continue to invest millions of dollars into Weems because it is unable to support itself, therefor draining our economy.
My second priority
My second priority is to obtain grants to fund & build a Community Center which is vital for our community’s future. A Community Center will provide resources for everyone to utilize, such as vocational and trade courses, swimming pool & other amenities. I intend to reach out to Gulf Coast Community College to expand education courses in our area for our students & future adults to have a better opportunity to attend a local college rather than them trying to find the financial means to travel to a campus.
Other priorities include developing relations with a variety of diverse businesses so that moving forward we can have long term jobs that will provide opportunities of retirement for the people. Affordable housing such as an Apartment Complex or Condominiums would allow residents to have a home life that they can afford. Honestly, we all know there isn’t much available except for short term weekly rentals.
There is so much more that I want to do for the betterment of our beautiful community; I know it can’t all be done immediately but I want to do everything I possibly can to see our community grow, succeed & prosper. In the end, without you, I wouldn’t have the job to best represent you, a County Commissioner who works for the people!
I truly appreciate all of the support & encouragement I have received since committing to run for office. I know that because of your support, I will be successful in the position. I hope that I have your support in Electing me as your District 5 County Commissioner.
Thank you so much for this opportunity.
With Best Regards,
- Madeline Nevarez
