 PALM BEACH COUNTY DISTRICT 6 CANDIDATE

Born in West Palm Beach, Sara is a second generation Floridian who understands the value of hard work and the complexities surrounding some of Palm Beach County's most pressing social issues. 

SMALL BUSINESS OWNER

Sara and her husband opened an automotive repair shop, Foreign Auto Specialists, near the  Royal Palm Beach and Wellington areas. While working on finding a location for their business, Sara confronted planning and zoning requirements for automotive repair shops. As their small business grew, and an expansion became the next move, Sara found herself dealing with many of the same issues again, in 2019, when purchasing a building for her shop.

Living in the Acreage (unincorporated Palm Beach), she had to work with the Palm Beach County planning, zoning staff, and the commission directly.

Common sense tells us the County can do more to help residents afford to stay in Palm Beach County via:

  •  Cutting Costs

  • Lowering Taxes

  • Better Budgeting

The County can do more to help small businesses  and residents via simplifying the planning and zoning processes. Get rid of moving goal posts.

The commission's lack of compassion towards businesses they kept shut down and residents they didn't agree with, made it clear to Sara, change is greatly needed.

A FORMER PALM BEACH COUNTY SCHOOL TEACHER

 

After working in healthcare for 10 years, Sara decided she wanted to help the next generation learn about science as it relates to the medical field. As a former middle school science teacher, Sara understands the needs of the future generations of the community, and will work to help build a government that makes decisions with a solid, long-range perspective on medical data.

PALM BEACH COUNTY DISTRICT 6: A PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE

Headlines sometimes desensitize us to issues in the news that have profound effects on families. Drug abuse and immigration are personal to Sara Baxter. ​ She raises her nephew, following the loss of her sister to an overdose. She has also helped her bother in-law through the immigration process. Creating programs to address substance abuse and help families is a priority. ​

Sara Baxter has a bachelors degree in business administration, started a small business and became a Realtor. Her experiences have helped reinforce her thoughts on the importance of public health and safety. Sara is interested in the relationship between unsafe neighborhoods and housing access and affordability, and wants to ensure all neighborhoods enjoy a level of public safety  and affordability that prevents high vacancy rates or property deterioration. ​ ​

Overcoming life's challenges, working hard and giving back to the community are the experiences that matter. Sara's life experience's  give her the best perspective to represent the citizens of Palm Beach County.  We currently have plenty of commissioners with political experience. What we need is someone with a different perspective.
