Naples Better Government Endorses Michelle McLeod

Naples Better Government proudly endorses two long-time Collier County residents for Collier County Commissioner. The candidates’ positions on affordable housing, growth, economic development, public safety, water quality, environment, mental health, fiscal policy, and complemented by strong records of community activism were key reasons the NBG Board makes these recommendations.

In Commission District Four, Naples Better Government recommends Michelle McLeod. Michelle served on the Naples City Council from 2016 to 2020 where she was instrumental with the development of Baker Park, the City Dock, and the City Emergency Operations Center. Her experience includes the Collier County Community Land Trust, Leadership Collier, Leadership Florida, Collier Coalition for Healthy Minds, and Naples Pathway Coalition. Her background is hotel management and banking. Michelle earned a bachelor’s degree from Saint Mary’s College and a master’s degree in Business Administration from Florida Gulf Coast University.

All candidates running for Districts 2 and 4 seats on the Board of County Commissioners were invited to participate in the pre-endorsement candidate interviews on June 29. Interviewed were candidates Reg Buxton, Chris Hall, Gerald Lefebvre, Nancy Lewis, Daniel Kowal, Michelle McLeod and Penny Taylor.
