“In the thirty years that I have been blessed to live in Palm Bay with my family, I have come to know so
many dedicated residents and local leaders who work hard every day because they are called to serve others
in our community. Working together we could harness that spirit and really make a positive difference in
people’s lives that will benefit our entire city,” said Rob Medina. “As Mayor I will fight to do just that – to

destination – we have so much to offer. In doing so we can also focus on our infrastructure and encourage
young people to pursue educational opportunities that will ensure they have the skills to succeed and
remain competitive.”
