Out on the Campaign Trail

I am very excited on my decision on running for Flagler County Commission District 1 seat to restore integrity and confidence back into the office and give the people a strong voice. Our county government faces many difficult challenges: fiscal shortfall, lagging infrastructure improvements, rising crime, bad investments, bad policy decision making, and irresponsible rezonings. Very recently my opponent voted on and I Quote him on his own words “A messy attempt at a half cent sale tax”. Last July he also voted to double the fees to the taxpayers in North Daytona. The people of Flagler County want a new approach, I know because I have asked the people for the opportunity to serve them with bold leadership and a comprehensive new strategy of working together to advance the interest of all citizens by implementing sound and limited self-governance.

Fernando Melendez Interview Highlights

As the former Chair of the Flagler County Planning and Development Advisory Board, I've had the honor and the privilege to serve our community by being one of the voices of our board for all our residents and stake holders. I've had a unique perspective from a board members vantage point that many of our voter residents are not able to weigh in on. Although a voluntary appointed position, I do it because I feel that we the citizens must have a voice in our county's future growth and development. I also feel that many of our recommendations put forth to our Board of Commissioners are totally ignored or not even considered. It is why I have decided to run to put. our citizens voice back in our government.

Biography

Fernando Melendez

My name is Fernando Melendez candidate for Flagler County Commission District 1 seat. I moved to Flagler County, from upstate NY with my wife of 29 years and my son who's 27.  In NY for the last twenty-five years, I worked in the bus industry both as a driver and as an elected union official representing over 14000 drivers. Advocating and representing them was the only encouragement I needed to want to advocate and serve my community. My qualifications are a combination of experiences, skills and resources.

My background in education has prepared me to serve my community. I hold a bachelor's degree in human services and psychology from Boricua College in NY. A master's degree in political science with a concentration in economic growth from SNHU. A Palm Coast Virtual Citizens Academy 2017 graduate. A former board member on the 2021 Palm Coast Redistricting Commision Board, and currently serving as chair on the Flagler County Planning and Development Advisory Board. I am also the current Community Director at SEAS Parish. I hold a certificate of completion from the Florida's Institute for Political Leadership Program.

I'm very proud to say that I was also highly recognized by the Republican Executive Committee with the very distinguish Frank J Meeker Spirit award one of only two given by the REC in its history in Flagler County. I'm a person I’d say that I’ve always been selfless and concerned more with the needs of others than myself.

Out on the Campaign Trail

My Opponent Andy Tax Dance a career politician has the propensity to behave in a particular manner. But he calls himself a Republican. Currently, our Republican party's fiscal conservatism includes support for lower taxes, small government conservatism, free market capitalism, free trade, deregulation of corporations. My opponent has supported raising taxes time and time again, out of control spending, and has recently voted on raising Waste pro's yearly rate from $300 to $435 a year to the taxpayers in the Mondex/Unincorporated Flagler County.  Time to vote this career politician RINO out.
