Vero Beach City Councilwoman Laura Moss Running for County Commission Seat

Excerpts from Treasure Coast Newspapers

 

VERO BEACH — Two-term City Councilwoman Laura Moss wants to move to county politics.

 

Moss filed paperwork to run in 2020 for the Indian River County Commission District 5 seat, currently held by Bob Solari.

 

Moss, 66, filed Sept. 10, one day after Solari announced he would not seek re-election.

 

County commissioners have to live in the district for which they are seeking election, but voters cast ballots for all seats, regardless of where they live. Moss has filed as a Republican for the seat.

 

In 2016, Moss was first elected to City Council and was named mayor the same year. She said she planned to run for the county seat, even if Solari had decided to run.

 

"It's a natural fit," she said. "I've already been doing it."

 

Moss has been the city's representative for the county Tourist Development Council, Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee.

 

As mayor, Moss was the city's representative to the Florida Municipal Power Agency, a statewide electrical co-op of cities and governments. She was instrumental in restarting conversations between the city and FMPA, which held contracts that made it difficult for the city to sell its electric system.

 

Moss sees the transition from City Council to County Commission as a natural one, similar to her move from city Utilities Commission chair to City Council, she said.

 

"I feel I can do the same thing with the County Commission," she said. "I can hit the ground running."
