My Fellow Collier County Residents,
It’s been incredible to meet so many amazing people ALL OVER DISTRICT 1 and beyond! What type of leader do you want to represent you, your family, and your concerns in the Collier County District 1 Commissioner seat?
This is much more than an election… it's a job interview to ensure we have one of the strongest & most experienced Commissioners in District 1 with deep experience in all issues essential to the position… and not get pushed around by developers & lawyers… and to work with environmentalists, concerned citizens, and the other four Commissioners. Having Proven Leadership, Business Expertise, Credibility, a Track Record, & Depth in the Issues -- is critical in this massive position of responsibility.

Donna Fiala is retiring after 20 years representing our District & County with dedication, and a love for our community and its citizens. However, our County has changed MUCH over those two decades and is now a $2 Billion dollar operation. It is about PEOPLE, but if you want to ensure we take care of each & every citizen -- it takes being a good listener... but also already having the experience, knowledge, expertise, credibility, and a deep understanding of all the issues to truly LEAD & SOLVE PROBLEMS!
