If elected, Joseph Dugan vows to implement sustainable growth plans.
Ormond Beach resident Joseph Dugan will run for City Commission in the November election against incumbent Troy Kent to represent Zone 2.
According to his candidate statement, Dugan, who works for First Green Bank, said he decided to run for City Commission because he has witnessed the current commission rezone properties "without our community's best interest in mind." He said the destroyed forests and "general lack of concern" for the quality of life in the city prompted him to seek positive change. The CANDO 2-endorsed candidate said if elected, he plans to work with city staff and planning board to slow development and implement sustainable growth plans.
He said he will also strive to bring back stringent wetland rules and seek action to reduce city utility fees. Dugan has six years of banking experience and said he was born and raised in Volusia County.
