I am Joesfa “Josie” Hernandez. I am a huge community activist in Pahokee. I am a candidate for Pahokee City commission group 1.

I believe it is time to bring UNITY in our Community with truth, honesty, and integrity.

I have worked on planning and zoning, I am on the neighborhood oversight panel, a school advisory chair, a 2020 census supervisor and a member of healthier Glades. I am an active member of my church, serve as a Hispanic behavioral health member and I’m currently employed by the Palm Beach County School Board where I enjoy working with our youth every day, they are our future and “we must” provide them with the essential tools necessary to be successful.

My goals for my City are:

  • To promote efficient and effective city government to improve levels of service.
  • Develop and maintain the public infrastructure to improve community appearance and encourage continued development.
  • Promote resident health, safety and education
  • Improve community involvement and trust

I am running so the residents of Pahokee can have a commissioner that will listen to them, serve them and work hard for them. That is pretty much who I am, “a listener who works hard every day.”
