Caribbean-American Running for Broward County Commission District 8

PEMBROKE PINES – Caribbean-American Christopher Max Ziadie is running for the office of the Broward County Commission District 8. This district encompasses Miramar, West Pembroke Pines, Weston, Southwest Ranches, Pembroke Park, Northwest Hallandale Beach and West Park; in Broward County.

Chris decided to run for this seat because he strongly believes there is a need for this District to be represented by a regular, trustworthy citizen with well rounded business management experience and people skills. “I will bring a fresh perspective and a true willingness to fight for what is in your best interest, instead of what is best for special interests”, says Christopher.

According to Chris, “My commitment to you is based on my belief that our families’ and communities’ needs are of the utmost importance”. “A commissioner is elected to work for the constituents – not the other way around”. As a family man, I am committed to dealing head on with the issues facing our community without making any empty promises.

Campaign Goals

Some of the issues I will be focusing on are:

• keeping property taxes low
• supporting and keeping small business
• upholding ethical behavior at all times
• addressing the county budget crisis
• restoring the public trust by bringing back accountability


Christopher was born in Kingston, Jamaica in October 1965, migrated to the United States with his family and grew up in South West Dade County.
