Deputy Mayor Jeri Blanco-District 4
I have been given the honor and privilege of the appointment to the City Council, City of Cocoa District 4 for the next two years. My husband and I have lived in Cocoa since 2005. I'm married with one adult daughter and one granddaughter. My family and my faith are very important parts of my life. I love spending time with my family and friends and I also enjoy reading and exercising to keep healthy. I firmly believe in giving back to the community in which you live. I served on the US 1 CRA for the city for approximately ten years. I also serve on the Brevard County CDBG Board and have been a board member since 2014. As a local Realtor I have served on several committees for the Board of Realtors. I currently serve on the MLS Committee, the Brevard Children in Need Committee and the Government Affairs Committee. I also volunteer one day a week at the Central Brevard Sharing Center in Cocoa.
My mission as District 4 Councilwoman is to serve my district and all the citizens of Cocoa to the best of my ability. To act responsibly but also with compassion and dignity to help make Cocoa a thriving community to work and live in. I look forward to working with the Mayor, the other members of Council and City Staff towards that endeavor.
My goals as City Councilwoman are very basic. Work on economic development to bring jobs to our city, help improve our image and clean up the blighted areas. As part of Team Cocoa I feel confidant that with the elected leaders of the City and the residents of the community can all work together to bring about the changes needed. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
