CommissionersBy Jill Fox

The race for three Parkland city commission seats has come to an end.

In District 1, Simeon Brier won the seat with 39 percent of the votes against Denise DellaPollaWilliam Reicherter, and Alexander Zand,

He will replace Commissioner Stacy Kagan, who vacated her seat in her bid to become mayor.

Brier, 45, who has lived in Parkland since the age of nine, practices business litigation with Cozen O’Connor, a national law firm with offices in South Florida.

Brier and his wife, Theresa, are both Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School graduates. They have two daughters — Angelina, a newly minted MSD grad, and Gianna, who will graduate from the high school in 2022.

Brier celebrated his victory with his family at a local pizza restaurant.

He said he is so thankful to everyone who voted for him, supported him, shared a post, gave a word of encouragement, or hosted an event.

“I can’t thank them enough — this means the world to me, and I’m truly appreciative,” he said. “To all of the candidates in my race, and all the races, the last two-plus weeks have been an absolute privilege and joy to campaign alongside them, to get to know their family and friends, and the camaraderie has epitomized what local races should be about — Good people trying to serve their community.”

Jordan Isrow was elected city commissioner for Parkland’s District 2, with 55 percent of the votes over Derek Olivier.

Isrow’s goal as a city commissioner is to continue making a positive impact on his community. His top priorities are preserving Parkland’s unique 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, and 5-month-old daughter, Maya. He is the general counsel for Oxygen Development, an international cosmetics company headquartered in South Florida.

Isrow and his family spent the evening at his in-laws, and they ordered in. He said he didn’t have anything planned because he didn’t know what result to expect.

“This is a celebration — this is all I need,” he said, “I am extremely honored by the support of my Parkland residents and humbled by the trust they’ve placed in me to serve district two.

Isrow looks forward to working with the residents and his fellow commissioners to ensure Parkland continues to be the best place to live and raise a family.

Vice mayor and business owner Robert “Bob” Mayersohn was reelected for city commission District 4 over political newcomer Robert Brannen, with 60 percent of the votes.

Mayersohn, a 24-year Parkland resident, has served as commissioner of District 4 since 2016 and vice mayor since 2019.

His campaign focused on improving public safety, supporting early learning programs for Parkland students, and preserving the community parks and greenways.

He lives with his longtime partner, Margie, and has a son, Garrett, who graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2013.

Mayersohn celebrated his victory at Parkland’s Deja Blue with close friends, Mayor Christine Hunschofsky, and his Parkland Buddy Sports family.

“I want to congratulate all the candidates who put themselves out there to run for office. I want to thank my opponent for a well-run and respectful campaign, and I want to thank all my supporters and volunteers who remembered to bubble in Bob at the bottom of the ballot,” he said.
