Candidate Jordan Isrow has entered the commission race for Parkland’s District 2 seat he announced on Wednesday.
Isrow said there is a long list of things that compelled him to run. However, the primary draw was the “privilege and the formidable challenge of planning for the future while managing the growth.” He wants to do his without sacrificing the essence of what makes Parkland so uniquely special.
In 2018, Rich Walker was elected to the city commission, and on May 7 announced he would be running for mayor — leaving the District 2 seat open.
Currently general counsel for Oxygen Development, an international cosmetics company headquartered in South Florida.
Isrow always had a strong interest in public service and giving back to his community. He has volunteered to help local public officials and political campaigns in various roles and is actively involved in several charities such as SOS Children’s Village, N.I.C.K.’s Camp, Jewish Federation of Broward County, Fashion Funds the Cure, Experience Camps, and Parkland Cares.
Born and raised in Boca Raton, Isrow attended Pine Crest School. He went on to graduate cum laude from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s of science in advertising. After graduating college, he received both his Juris Doctor and MBA from the University of Miami, where he graduated cum laude.
At UM, Isrow was a member of the Moot Court Board, Dean’s List, President of the Entertainment and Sports Law Society, champion of the UM School of Law’s Negotiation Competition and recipient of a Dean’s Merit Scholarship Award.
His goal as a city commissioner is to continue making a positive impact for his community, with his top priority preserving Parkland’s special character and family-friendly environment — while best preparing the city for the future.
Isrow and his wife Jessica live in Watercrest and share their time with their 3-year-old son, Parker, a 5-month-old daughter, Maya, a French Bulldog named Bentley, and a rescue cat named Loki.
He said that Parkland is unrivaled in terms of its strong sense of community, and we will always support one another and rally together both in good times and in bad. It is, what he believes, makes Parkland one of the best places to live in the country.
“I intend to do everything in my power to protect this lifestyle for all Parkland residents.”
