Deputy Mayor Jeremy Rodgers kicked off his re-election efforts last week at the Little Chalet in Boca Raton. Rodgers was elected two years ago is seeking a second term. While his first race was a classic example of David vs. Goliath, after coming out from behind in the three-way money race for City Council, Jeremy has spent the past two years proving he was in fact the best choice in the 2015 race.
In addition to serving as Deputy Mayor, Rodgers is also serves the city as an alternate to the PBC Metropolitan Planning Organization and a sitting member on the National League of Cities Information and Technology Committee.
Rodgers is an active Cryptological Warfare Officer in the Navy and has over 18 years experience working for a top technology company.
While Rodgers’ reputation may precede him, his enthusiasm for the city of Boca Raton is of the same caliber. At his event last Thursday night, Rodgers addressed a packed house and offered insight as to what his plans are for the next two years on the council. He encouraged supporters to help him make Boca be the best in the country and showed people that Boca means business.
For most city council members the drawing a crowd on a weeknight can be a tough sell, but Jeremy Rodgers makes it looks easy. Running in a local race during an off cycle presents problems of lack of interest as well as low voter turnout, but it seems Rodgers’ supporters did not get the memo. From the Vice Chair of the Republican Party of Florida, Michael Barnett to County Commissioner Steve Abrams, attendees showed Rodgers’s re-election event was the place to be last week.
While there is no way to predict the future, we’re confident Rodgers will continue on with his work on the Boca Raton City Council. His dedication to the people of Boca and commitment to making Boca Raton the greatest place to live, work, and play is apparent in everything he does.
In the campaign world, five months is a lifetime, and anything can happen, but should anyone think of running against Jeremy Rodgers, they better think twice. After all, Rodgers has what it takes and knows how to win big even when everyone else has written him off.
