Two-time mayor of Broward County Barbara Sharief has remained a facet of her community by keeping in touch with her constituents. The Business-Friendly Commissioner is among the most out-going and charismatic of South Florida political figures. From Sunday services to school events, Sharief makes sure she is informed to the problems and issues around her. An example of her outreach to cultural institutions is her attendance at the Haitian Heritage Museum 2014 Gala.
Here are five times Barbara Sharief combined the personal and the political into personable encounters.
Ladies Day Out
Religious services are a fun way to connect with your community, and Sharief did just that at The Bridge Church’s Ladies Day Out Event. The church’s Pastor Peter and Stella Tokar welcomed her with open arms, making for an inspiring and uplifting event.
Florida South University Family Fun Day
Sharief herself is a Miami Dade Junior College and Florida International University alumna, but that didn’t stop her from enjoying South Florida FSU Black Alumni’s Family Fun Day. Sharief has an extensive education, which has made her a welcome member of many Florida university events and graduations.
Opioid Speech at Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida
As the President and Director of Nursing of South Florida Pediatric Homecare, Sharief is more than qualified to talk about the dangers of opioids. She spoke at the Broward Chapter of the Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida about the nationwide epidemic, educating audience members on how to stay safe with opioids.
Math Family PI Night
On top of all her political achievements, Sharief shows us that at the end of the day, she’s a mom, too. She sponsored the Math Family PI Night at New Renaissance Middle School in Miramar this March, encouraging students, teachers and parents to make math fun.
Boys and Girls Club Bowlathon
And finally, Sharief and her daughters took part in the Boys and Girls Club Bowlathon this May. Her team won the Team Spirit Award, making for a fun night with a good cause. This is a prime example of how Barbara Sharief remains an honest, loyal and personable politician.
