I am Jeffrey Blydenburgh, and I want to serve you as City Commissioner. Throughout my life as an architect and planner and as an active civic volunteer, I have worked to bring people together to solve problems. Protecting, preserving, and improving Winter Park requires knowledge, expertise, and an ability to build consensus.
To the heightened discussions of our times, I bring an understanding of Winter Park honed at multiple levels of civic involvement. These include providing leadership in the city’s recent visioning process, establishing systems for delivering food to the community’s neediest citizens, and helping to revitalize the city’s historic 47-acre natural habitat, Mead Botanical Garden. I bring valuable career experience to Winter Park’s critical growth issues. Finally, as a resident of 23 years, I will bring to my service a fervent love for Winter Park and a desire to see it flourish.
