March 24 — We have heard a lot recently about the growing pains being experienced across Broward County. While it is sometimes easy to focus on areas of improvement such as enhanced mobility options, this growth represents fantastic achievements in Broward’s job market and economy. In the first quarter of 2019, Broward’s unemployment rate decreased and more than 14,000 jobs were added in January alone. This coupled with the recent voter approval of $465 million in improvement bonds across several cities gives us cause for celebration as we work toward continued, sustainable growth in Broward County.
