Commissioner Joy Carter is getting ready to start her second term on the Coral Springs Commission. An important goal for her is to make the senior community more vibrant. “I want to make the seniors a more recognized force in the community,” said Carter.

Carter would also like to see more police substations in the community and his hoping that some of the city’s landlords will offer space to make this a reality. She also would like to work to make it possible for gay men to donate blood.

Carter is a strong proponent of the penny sales tax. She believes this will bring much needed revenue to pay for things like a new auditorium at Coral Glades High School and a football stadium at J.P. Taravella High School. She believes it will help the City pay for public safety upgrades. She is pleased that much of the money will come from tourists to Broward County.
