Palm Coast Mayor David Alfin has launched his Share with the Mayor program.

The program will begin in April, but residents and local organizations can sign up now on the city’s website or by calling the mayor’s office at 386-986-3702.

The program is designed to help Alfin connect with residents and hear their concerns.

Alfin said he will meet with residents in their homes or driveways or in his office. 

“I believe that the responsibility of the mayor is to be out in the public engaging with the residents,” he said. “I don't believe the mayor's job is to be in an office.”

His intent, he said, is to visit every neighborhood over the next two years of his term, and, if he is reelected, continue Share with the Mayor into his next term. 

Alfin said Share with the Mayor is open to everyone, from individual residents to neighborhood watch groups and beyond.

Those requesting meetings will be asked to limit each meeting to three issues because of time constraints. 

Alfin said he will attend meetings prepared to address any questions he can on those topics, and will bring concerns back to city staff and to City Council meetings.

He said he wants to be able to make decisions in consideration of what Palm Coasts residents want, and to assure residents that he is listening.

“My goal is to touch more residents that have ever been engaged before,” Alfin said. “Our residents want to be heard. And I'm going out there to listen.”
