“Jeffrey Blydenburgh’s professional skills and civic contributions are amply recorded on his resume. But beyond the obvious, what has really wowed me through many years of watching Jeffrey work in Winter Park, is his abundant and positive energy. He comes to meetings ready to help. He also comes ready to inspire. He’s the guy with ideas. He is the person who’s going to push you to explore all angles, to think outside the box, to make a project as good as it can be. Jeffrey’s enthusiasm is quite simply contagious. I can’t imagine a better leader for Winter Park right now.”

 

Catherine Hinman

 

“Working with Jeffrey and seeing him “in action” illustrates an example of a dynamic leader who is passionate about his community, excited about positive change and collaborative in getting the job done. I know he will bring the intellect, the energy and the ability to guide Winter Park successfully into the next decade and I wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy. “

“As an architect and planner, I have known Jeffrey for a quarter of a century, both professionally and as a good friend and traveler. He is a person who is totally dedicated to the task at hand, as witnessed and supported by many of our overseas clients in China, Spain, Germany, England, etc. At home, he will bring a similar dedication to the preservation of Winter Park values and I thoroughly endorse his bid for Commissioner #1.”

“With the increasing number of development-related items on the 2020 agenda, Winter Park needs a Commissioner with the planning and architectural experience of Jeffrey in order to arrive at practical, not political, solutions.”
