County Commissioner Nate McLaughlin is running for re-election for the District 4 County Commission seat.
“I am honored and humbled to serve on the board of commissioners since 2010," McLaughlin said. "My principles are what guide me.”
McLaughlin, 57 and a licensed Real Estate Broker and U.S. Air Force veteran, said his goals include "completing the dunes restoration, an emergency communications system, fire service infrastructure and controlling operational costs. ... My goal is to always make the most informed decision as possible for today and for the future.”
In a campaign news release, McLaughlin said he is a committed and experienced commissioner who "puts taxpayers first, acts with integrity and gets results." He added that he holds advanced certified county commissioner credentials and has lived in Flagler County for 24 years.
"His work on behalf of the county has positioned Flagler to be a viable, critical asset in the northeast Florida region," the campaign news release states. "The results allow Flagler County to share in the benefits of regional economic growth.
