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 former member and chair on the Flagler County Planning and Development Advisory Board. I am also the current Community Director for the Knights of Columbus 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.
