Joy Carter is my choice for Seat 5 on the Coral Springs City Commission. She brings a solid record of Leadership and Experience. It is not enough to have just been a resident for a long time. Candidates should bring a record of real community accomplishment. Joy has such a documented record. In addition to her business background, she understands the needs out in the neighborhoods, especially the older ones. She will be an outstanding Commissioner!

david levyAs a proud Coral Springs resident since 1984, I am so encouraged that someone like Joy will represent our home town. A leader by example, one only has to look at Joy’s tireless effort to give back to the community she so proudly calls home to her business and home to her family. Leadership in Chamber of Commerce… leadership in the wonderful, annual Festival of the Arts… I will vote for Joy. My mentor, my friend.
