A small number of committed people can make a big difference in a community. Sometime these people are longtime residents upset with how unmanaged growth has changed what they love about their hometown.

Other times, the leaders might be newcomers who want to make sure that their adopted hometown doesn’t develop the same ugliness or 

congestion as the one they left. More often than not, they’re simply citizens who care a great deal about their community.

Strong leaders and committed citizens.

For many of us, the world seems upside down on lots of levels. The cost of living continues to rise with no end in sight. National and international politics is ugly. No one in government appears capable of solving the real challenges of the day. And change is coming at us at a rapid pace.

But what if we told you we have a sure-fire way to address those issues in our own little town?

What if you had the power to protect and enhance your quality of life and it didn’t cost you a dime? Would you use it?

You do hold that power. You can use it any time you like. We’re here to show you how.

Get your arms around a few issues. 

We provide you with timely information about policies from Village Hall that impact our quality of life and our wallets, influence land development and traffic, insisting on lawful, fair, and transparent governance. 

We are a good tool for you to use. But don’t just take our word for things. If something piques your interest, ask us for more information!

Then, it’s up to you.

An informed citizenry is the most powerful tool we’ve got to ensure our democratic republic stands. And it begins, not ends, at the local level. You don’t need to hold a PhD to be an expert on issues. Most of us humans have the common sense needed to run a good town or city. 

So, make a commitment to attend at least one Village Council meeting a year. If you’re shy, sending an email to your Councilmembers is an easy way to make your voice heard.

The phone number at Village Hall is 305-664-6400. Call your Councilmembers or email them!

Our elected officials need us, all of us. Learn more, speak up more, find a way to get through to them. Get your friends involved. That’s our collective charge. 

One last way you can help.

The board and other volunteers have committed time and resources to educating the residents and taxpayers of Islamorada so anyone can keep an eye on how our elected officials represent us and utilize our tax dollars. We help amplify your voices through our newsletters and social media.

Every tax-deductible donation makes it possible for the Islamorada Community Alliance to continue educating the public and advocating for the best policy outcomes for today’s residents, taxpayers, and future generations.
