Community advocate working to clean-up our community

Victoria Mitchner is a native of Brevard, a mother and disabled US Army combat veteran, she is also a resident of the great City of Cocoa. During the 2018 midterm elections Victoria successfully won her party's primary election nomination for the Brevard County Commission District 2 seat advancing her to the general election in which she lost. However, Victoria's
defeat did not stop her from making good on some of her campaign promises. Shortly after the election Victoria got to work organizing clean up efforts in the blighted areas within Cocoa's Diamond Square community. Each month Victoria highlights a street within the Diamond Square community to organize beautification clean ups. The last clean up expanded to the city's new veteran village were volunteers cleaned sites prior to the ground breaking of the veteran homes. One of Victoria's favorite quotes is from Former First Lady Michelle Obama "there are still many causes worth sacrificing for, so much history yet to be made.” Victoria
continues to live by the Army values she was taught, one in particular that stands out, Selfless Service.

“Victoria Mitchner has been an awesome asset for the Cocoa community especially in the areas of Diamond Square. Her vision, along with many other volunteers, has really made a big difference in the way our community looks for the future. I appreciate Victoria for all of her hard work and dedication to Cocoa,” said District 1 Councilman Alex Goins.
