Carole Philipson Endorsements

September 23, 2019|

I have listened to members of these groups and learned their concerns about Lakeland’s future and visions for the city’s continued growth. I have shared my background and perspectives. Their time and engagement in meeting with me were valuable and will contribute to my service if I am elected to Lakeland City Commission on November 5.

Lakeland Electric

October 9, 2019|

I’ve spent a lot of time understanding the City’s operations and budgeting processes, plus I worked many years on the receiving side of municipal services. With that background, I do not favor the November 5 charter amendment that would make it easier to sell Lakeland Electric to a for-profit power company.

As a City Commission candidate, I have spent time listening and learning about municipal broadband. What I’ve learned is municipal broadband projects are a poor way to spend taxpayer money. Failure is almost inevitable, and dollars are typically taken from other public services to subsidize it.

Lakeland City Commission Campaign Update

August 30, 2019|

I’ve immersed myself in a listening and learning tour before and during my run for Lakeland City Commission. I’ve spoken not only with numerous City leaders and department heads, attended city commission meetings and workshops, but also spoke with members of neighborhood associations and community members in all parts of our city – to learn about your thoughts and priorities.
