District 5 Commissioner Steve Geller brings over three decades of political expertise to the Broward County Commission and has a name and reputation recognized and respected throughout the State of Florida.
His record of leadership and public service began 34 years ago in 1988 when he served the people of Broward County as a Florida State Representative. In 1998 he was elected to the Florida Senate, where he would spend the next ten years. In November of 2016 he was first elected to serve the people of District 5 in Broward County, and was reelected in 2020 by the Constituents of District 5 which currently includes portions of the Broward Municipal Services District, Davie, Plantation, Southwest Ranches, Sunrise and all of Cooper City.
“A lot has changed in the thirty- four years since I was first elected to the State Legislature. One thing that hasn’t changed is the desire of the citizens to be heard by their elected officials,” said Geller.
Commissioner Geller’s top priority is bringing high-paying jobs to Broward County utilizing the “Megazone” which includes Port Everglades, the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport and the nearby railroad and interstate.
The Commissioner is a strong supporter of organized labor and holds Building Trades Meetings year-round because he believes that our Country is stronger when there is a strong middle class and strong labor movement, both public and private. Commissioner Geller has taken the lead in advocating for the growing film and entertainment industry in Broward County, and was crucial in creating Broward County’s new Film Commission.
Commissioner Geller currently chairs the South Florida Regional Planning Council, the Water Advisory Board, and serves on the Cultural Council in Broward County.
Looking forward, Commissioner Geller will use his unmatched expertise and experience to build public/private partnerships between business and educational institutions, protect Broward County’s fragile environment, and forge a strong connection with District 5 residents through town hall meetings, transparency in government and continued dedication to public service.
Commissioner Geller keeps an active newsletter that sends out biweekly updates and has a social media presence on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
