Mayor Netterstrom

COMMISSIONER'S CORNER:
MAYOR DAVE NETTERSTROM

All good things must end and unfortunately that time has come.  I must stop playing and get back to work.  At the end of the year, I will resign my position as Mayor (a job highly recommend) so I can clear my mind and focus on new opportunities.  As many of you are aware, I’ve been purchasing distressed properties and flipping them to new owners.  As the economy gets better, my business model is changing (bad for me, great for everyone else) and 2016 will be an exciting transition time for me.
I hope you forgive me for leaving a little early but I have been your elected official for 5 years and we have accomplished a lot together.  The Glass bank, New Fire Station, SNAP permits, marketing/branding, customer friendly City Hall, New events like Surfing Santa and Power Boats, Pro business atmosphere that encourages new business and re-investment in Cocoa Beach, Kept full services with low taxes, Remodeled water plant and other projects to protect the Lagoon, Kept our kids in local schools, invited visitors from other planets, brought Jeannie back to the beach (Oct 25th) and a whole bunch of other stuff that makes us proud to live in Cocoa Beach (I still think we need a Ferris Wheel).
I’d like to thank my supporters and friends, critics for challenging me (hopefully you agreed with some of my ideas), City Staff and fellow Commissioners, the media, community leaders, family members and most of all my wife Sherri.  It’s been an honor to serve and I love Cocoa Beach.
Politics has become a form of entertainment and I often referred to our meetings as “The Commissioners of Cocoa Beach Reality TV Show.”  So as the saying goes in show business – “That’s all Folks!”
