Newly elected Commission Vice Chair, Lynda Bell addressed an audience of over 150 small business owners and local civic leaders during the monthly luncheon meeting of the prestigious Palmetto Bay Business Association at Christ Fellowship Church in Palmetto Bay.

Surrounded by an enthusiastic crowd, Vice Chair Bell informed the attendees how pleased she was of the many accomplishments she has been able to make for her district and the residents of the County, as a result of the mutual cooperation between her colleagues, and the close working relationships she has fostered with the municipal leaders of her district since her election to the Commission in 2010. Moreover, Mrs. Bell praised the members of The Palmetto Bay Business Association and organizations like it who - "not only identify the economic problems we face, but actively forge new partnerships with public and private sector institutions to tackle the issues of chronic unemployment, help establish and guide new businesses, and assist those who are open, remain open for the overall improvement of our quality of life." Furthermore, Vice Chair Bell reminded the attendees to rousing applause that - "you clearly understand that government does not create jobs or prosperity for our residents.
