It was an honor to serve as Mayor of Broward County last year, the second time since I was elected to office in 2010.There were a lot of challenges in 2017. We learned valuable lessons from a tragedy at Broward’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. And, as a powerful hurricane approached our County, we reacted quickly, keeping our residents informed before and after the storm. These were not easy times for our County, but we remained steadfast and resilient.
