Lori Parish

About: Lori’s common sense approach to government appealed to Broward’s diverse voters in 1988 when she ran and was elected to the Broward County Commission. Her straight-talking, “tell-it-like-it-is” style was one of the refreshing changes she brought to County government.

As a Commissioner, Lori championed such causes as fiscal restraint, less bureaucracy, environmental protection, the rights of domestic violence victims, public safety, economic development, mass transit and improved health services, including the need for a pediatric pathologist. She re-elected to four-year terms in 1992, 1996 and 2000, without opposition.

In 2004, Lori left the County Commission to run for Broward County Property Appraiser. She was re-elected in 2008 with 97% and without opposition in 2012. Her term as Property Appraiser ended January 2017.
