DELRAY BEACH, FL – Delray Beach community activist and business woman Christina Morrison has opened her campaign for Delray Beach’s City Commission seat #3 which is currently held by Commissioner Adam Frankel, who is termed out and cannot campaign for re-election. Morrison is a Commercial Realtor and Real Property Consultant and, in that capacity, she has brought and kept numerous companies in Delray Beach which has helped to increase the tax base and employment base in the City. She also serves on several Boards both in Delray Beach and throughout the County, including the Economic Council and the Palm Beach County Criminal Justice Commission. She also served on the City’s Financial Review Board, which she chaired, and the city’s Site Plan Review and Appearance Board. She was an active participant in the Six Pillars Initiative, the economic development blueprint for Palm Beach County and Florida’s future championed by the Economic Council and the Florida Chamber. “Delray Beach is my home and is a wonderful place to live and work. In order to remain great, the city must protect and enhance Delray Beach’s quality of life for residents and businesses alike. Right now, Delray Beach is seeing tremendous growth and opportunity. We must work together to protect and improve our neighborhoods, and collaborate on benefits that are supported by both residents and business owners. I am seeking the opportunity to make that a reality,” said Morrison. Her community accomplishments include advocacy for property tax reform, safe neighborhoods, and a strong and nurturing environment. In 2010, she worked with the Economic Council in leading the battle against a one cent sales tax increase for fire service in Palm Beach County. She has advocated for the City of Delray Beach to promote prudent city spending, protect residential neighborhoods, and for sustainability for all. “The leaders of Delray Beach need to understand the importance of finding solutions that preserve and protect our wonderful neighborhoods and balance that with the vibrant business community in order to maintain our great city,” Morrison stated. “When situations arise that have the neighborhoods in direct conflict with the business community, we must collaborate for balanced solutions that produce positive results and are a “win-win” for everyone.” Specializing in commercial real estate, Morrison was elected President of the Realtors Commercial Alliance in 2010 – 2011 and has served multiple Board terms on Florida Realtors, the Housing Leadership Council and the Community Land Trust. She works daily to bring companies and employers to Delray Beach, which bring and create jobs in the City.
