John Fanelli - District 2
Term : 2022-2022
The Palm Coast City Council appointed an interim replacement for the District 2 vacancy on the Council and selected Mr. John Fanelli at a special March 22nd meeting. He will assume the responsibilities as the new Council Member and will serve until the community elects a permanent representative in the November 2022 election.
The appointment of Council Member Fanelli brings yet another collaborative component to the Council, as his expertise will help extend the link between the affirmative work of our Council and the School District’s positive culture and climate of support for families in our community. He has been known to all as an accomplished educator in Flagler and Volusia Counties with innovative ideas and a track record for proven successful collaborations with so many of our local families.
Council Member Fanelli said, “I’ve been living in Palm Coast for 35 years. This community raised me and now it is my great privilege to have the opportunity to give back to my hometown. I have a young family living in Palm Coast and I want mine and ALL families to move in the right direction in this City. I know where we’ve been and where we are and I want to help with where we are going. I want to bridge the connection between city government and the School District to help children through their education and then to find business connections here and become positive, responsible citizens of Palm Coast. I believe that our City’s best export is most definitely our families and our students.”
Council Member Fanelli enjoys fishing and his favorite spots are the Matanzas Inlet and the Intracoastal Waterway, trawling for redfish, black drum, flounder and trout.
