Meet the Candidates, Bay Village Ward 4: David Florez

David Florez

I am running for Council Ward 4 in Bay Village. Ashley, my wife, and three daughters have lived in Bay Village for the past 22 years and we love our community. Bay is more than beautiful homes and parks. It’s Bay Days on 4th of July, the homecoming parades, the annual BMS Rake Out, and the community pulling together to accomplish building a new Home of the Rockets.   

  • If elected, I commit to making our infrastructure issue a top priority, and my past experience in water and waste treatment, stormwater management, and EPA regulations/compliance make me uniquely positioned to help the community with this issue. 
  • The safety of our community is also a priority, and I will work with the city and police to leverage new surveillance technologies to assist police officers in deterring criminals responsible for vandalism and overall crime. In addition, I will work with our city departments to provide safer routes for walkers along our major roads.
  • I also want to continue to build and enhance the green space within Bay Village. I plan to find and utilize local and national grants to continue to enhance our parks, lakeshore, and recreation facilities. 

I am committed to serving our community with compassion and professionalism. I have actively worked over the last 22 years to help make it a great place to live. Our family has collectively held 75+ volunteer positions in numerous Bay organizations to date, and I would like to take our legacy of service and love of Bay Village to the next level by becoming your Ward 4 City Council representative. My goal is to bring our community together to make it even better.     

For all of these reasons, I ask for your vote on Nov. 7 to continue to enhance our beautiful village.
