C.E.R.T.

Highlands County needs Certified Emergency Respond Teams throughout the county to assist our first responders to provide aid for a growing population.

Residents of Highlands County Community now have the opportunity to elect officials who can better plan for the future and focus on our needs. County Commissioners should be invested, reliable and innovative. They should know what the county needs to experience progress. We should go back to the basics where we focus on restoring Hope to Highlands County by insuring shelter for all, timely emergency medical services, and  creating a stong economy centered around innovative training to prepare the workforce for careers that will take them above poverty.
If elected Bobbie Smith-Powell will work hard to make sure all these issues are addressed and resolved.
