Councilmember Lorraine Koss-District 4

Welcome - I’m glad you’ve looked me up.  I’m eager to hear from you!  Don’t hesitate to contact me.  I'm happy to meet you at City Hall, too, just call me to set a time.

Since 2018, it’s been my honor to serve as Councilperson for District 4.  Together, we can make positive change for Cocoa.  I want all citizens to be heard and feel welcome to participate in our democracy.  By doing so, we may all feel a little more inspired to act for the Good of Cocoa.  If you want to follow our activity, please sign up to receive my quarterly report to District 4.

I NEED POINT PEOPLE on various issues e.g., housing, crime, parks, architecture, transportation, to name a few.  If you have an interest, or expertise, please consider letting me know and helping with research to develop direction and policy.

In addition to being on City Council, I serve Cocoa through volunteer leader Board positions on the Space Coast Economic Development Commission and the Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization.   I’m also the Brevard County Commissioner’s appointee to the Save Our Indian River Lagoon Citizen Oversight Committee and on the County’s Planning and Zoning Advisory Board.  My volunteer leadership in Cocoa began as Chair of the Utilities Advisory Board and as founder and first chair of the Sustainability Advisory Board.

I retired as Deputy Director to the U.S. Water Alliance and was a Senior Manager for the Water Environment Federation.  My undergraduate is from Trinity University in Communications and my master’s degree is from Duke University in Environmental Management. I have two adult sons and a grandson.

My husband Larry is a Brevard native and Tech Engineer at Kennedy Space Center.  He works with NASA scientists on water use to grow food in space.  He is the love of my life and greatest supporter.  He makes it possible for me to dedicate my time and talents for the Good of Cocoa.
