CANDIDATE FOR CITY COMMISSIONER

District One of the City of Fort Lauderdale

John Herbst

WHY I’M RUNNING

I am running to be the next Commissioner for the City of Fort Lauderdale, District 1. I bring a unique skillset to the Commission based on almost four decades of senior-level experience in all aspects of corporate and public sector finance and accounting. As the City Auditor for the last 16 years, I have been involved in every financial decision that the City has made. That includes reviewing every agenda item of City business before the City Commission votes on them. I also review and advise the City Commission as the in-house expert on the financial viability of proposed public-private partnerships. The City will continue to face decisions with enormous economic consequences and no one is better prepared to address those issues than me; I have no learning curve!
