Community Leader and Educator Joshua Simmons Releases Campaign Video Announcing Candidacy for Coral Springs City Commission, Seat 4


Coral Springs, Fla. – Ready to turn his love of the city into public service, Coral Springs resident Joshua Simmons is excited to announce that he is running for Coral Springs City Commission, Seat 4 with a short video, now live on his campaign’s Facebook page.  “Having lived, worked, studied, and volunteered in Coral Springs over the years, I am motivated to help this beautiful city move forward in a positive direction,” said Simmons. “Coral Springs has grown over the years and is on the verge of being the jewel of Northwest Broward. However, before we can get there, I believe our City needs a slight course correction. It will be my mission, as Commissioner, to lead that journey, and this mission is why I have chosen ‘A New Way Forward’ as my campaign slogan”


Simmons moved to Coral Springs in 2011 to help raise his sister while his single mother served in the United States Navy, becoming his sister’s legal guardian at the age of 22. After earning his Bachelors of Art in Political Science at Florida Atlantic University and successfully completing his Masters in Psychology, Simmons chose to stay in Coral Springs, working as a mental health therapist before taking a position as a Broward County Public School Teacher at Pompano Beach Middle School. He will teach at Coral Springs High beginning Fall of 2017.


Citing the importance of strong local economy and resident inclusion, Simmons pledges to strengthen Coral Springs though smart development decisions that will allow Coral Springs to become a hub for vibrant local businesses, successful schools, and healthy families. “It is important that we work to protect resident’s property values and take proactive measures to revitalize our city and neighborhoods,” Simmons stated. “A strong economy is the backbone to support quality education, programs for senior citizens, and a higher standard of living for our residents. Students should feel safe in their schools and neighborhoods, businesses should strive to have a Coral Springs location, and families should be proud to live here.”


“One of the beautiful things about Coral Springs is the city’s emphasis on volunteerism. Over the years this has inspired me to get involved as a resident and I currently serve on the Customer Involved Government Committee, Martin Luther King Jr Committee, the Multicultural Committee and the Broward County Human Rights Board. I also enjoy volunteering at the many city events that Coral Springs hosts each year, such as the Coral Springs Festival of the Arts and Worldfest,” said Simmons. “I’ve seen first hand all that Coral Springs has to offer, and it is my pledge to do all that I can to achieve that potential.
