Keeping Crime Low: Keith has and will continue to make public safety a priority. Keith will focus on community policing and utilizing new technology to keep our city safe. Our local police and firefighters have endorsed Keith James for Mayor.
Environment and Economy: Keith will continue our city’s sustainability practices, and work to achieve the 2025 goal for non-fossil fuel / fleet conversions. The economy in West Palm Beach is doing well and Keith has been part of that success. Keith is focused on creating hubs that attract technology, financial and entrepreneurial companies. In partnership with our local chamber and the Business Development Board Keith will ensure West Palm Beach is a city that stays open for business and creates local jobs.
Integrity: Keith is the former Chair of the Ethics Task Force, a role he was appointed to by then Mayor Lois Frankel. Keith will make sure there is both transparency and accountability at City Hall.
Traffic, Transit and Taxes: Keith is the longest serving city representative on the Transportation Planning Authority and understands traffic issues and solutions. Keith will continue to expand transit opportunities and increase the options for how people move around our city. Keith is committed to NOT raising our tax rates but actually rolling back our property tax rates once critical needs in our City are met.
Homelessness: This is a top priority for Keith. Keith will continually speak with local homeless program leaders and has outlined a six-point plan on tackling the homeless issue with enforcement measures, outreach teams, prevention efforts and resource centers.
