With a proven track record of community development, Jonathon May has the optimism, vision and ethical leadership needed to move Oakland Park forward.

Right now there are a number of neighborhoods in our City that are lacking representation by an organized Neighborhood Association. This means that some concerns are not being heard. If elected, Jonathon will mobilize residents and City resources to strengthen and grow our Neighborhood Associations. He believes that when our neighborhoods are strong, our entire city is strong!

Jonathon is a proud resident of Oakland Park, where he resides with his spouse in the Coral Brook neighborhood. He is actively involved in the River Shores Community Association. He has previously served as Vice President of his Neighborhood Association. In this role, Jonathon worked closely with the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to secure grants for road, bike path and sidewalk improvements. Jonathon has previously served on the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Community Services Advisory Board, where he participated in securing over seven million dollars in State and Federal grants for community development needs in Broward County. He currently serves as a Board Member for the South Florida Diversity Council and supports many diverse organizations, such as The Pride Center at Equality Park and SunServe.

Jonathon works at Nova Southeastern University, where he manages the quality of life on a campus of 30,000. With this experience, he is well prepared to represent Oakland Park’s 44,326 residents. Jonathon hold a Master’s degree in Leadership from Bowling Green State University. As a working professional his whole life, he is keenly aware of the needs of working families. He wants to make sure that Oakland Park remains an attractive place for them to live, work and raise their families. 

Oakland Park is facing a period of tremendous growth and change over the next four to eight years. Jonathon is committed to working for your best interest; not big developers or special interest groups. With your help, we can elect a leader who will put The People of Oakland Park first!

If elected as your new Commissioner, Jonathon’s door will always be open. If you would like share a concern or have a question about the campaign, please email him at
