In a media release on Wednesday afternoon, Palm Coast resident Fernando Melendez announced his candidacy for a seat on the Palm Coast City Council with the following:

“Diversity, Determination, and Dedication, I am very excited to announce my candidacy for the Palm Coast City Council District 4 seat. I am a committed resident of our city who has an even-handed common sense approach. I recently graduated with a Masters degree in Political Science with a concentration in economic growth. I took interest in Political Science with my main aim being to get an insight of how to help lead a community with inclusivity. Under my leadership I intend to continue to improve the quality of life in our city in terms of quality amenities, infrastructure and most of all public safety without any marginalization.

I  hope that the citizens of  the City of Palm Coast will support me in my quest to make Palm Coast a better and friendly environment to live in.”

Melendez currently sits on Flagler County’s Planning and Development Board as an At-Large member through 2024 and has been active in local politics as the Chairman of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly Flagler County Chapter. He was recently appointed as a member of the Palm Coast Redistricting Commission.

Melendez is one of two candidates filed for the Palm Coast City Council District 4 seat, running against Stephen Swarner. Timothy Sharp withdrew as a Palm Coast City Council District 4 candidate to run against Florida Representative Paul Renner, incumbent and Speaker of the House designee, for the Florida House of Representatives, District 24 seat.
