INCREASE REGIONAL ECONOMIC IMPACT TO PALM BEACH COUNTY AND THE PORT DISTRICT…
EXPLORE AND EXPAND ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES WITH THE PORT OF PALM BEACH AND THE MUNICIPALITIES WITHIN THE PORT DISTRICT…
REVITALIZE AN EXPLORE INLAND PORT OPPORTUNITIES WITH THE PORT OF PALM BEACH DISTRICT…
I am excited to announce my candidacy for the Port of Palm Beach Commission Group 3! It is my sincere desire to bring my many years of public service to the Port Commission. Ports are gateways into our country. As such, understanding the essential security concerns inherent with ports is critical. Compounding the security issues for our Port is the President of the United States is a nearby resident. During my tenure as Chief of Police for the city in which the Port is located, Riviera Beach, I assisted in the design and implementation of Port of Palm Beach’s security plan following the passage of the Federal Homeland Security Act of 2003.
The Port of Palm Beach taxing district was created by the Florida State legislature to serve as an economic engine for all communities within the Port’s district and has tremendous economic potential yet untapped. The Port of Palm Beach’s taxing district, represents over 50% of Palm Beach County’s population.
My plan is to work with the other Port Commissioners to help ignite the vast regional economic opportunities contained within the Port district with the goals of: increasing regional economic impact, expanding economic opportunities with municipalities, revitalizing inlet port opportunities and overall unlocking and igniting the full potential of this economic engine for the benefit of citizens and businesses of Palm Beach County and beyond.
I humbly ask you for your vote on August 18th.
Yours in service,
Clarence "Chief" Williams
Candidate for Port of Palm Beach Commissioner, Group 3

The Port’s economic contributions to Palm Beach County are considerable, and each Port Commissioner – into whose hands its management is entrusted – should not be one who merely occupies a seat, but rather a committed, hard-working individual focused on improvements and growth. I have already contributed to the Port in my capacity of Chief of Police; which includes, the design and implementation of its security plan, the analysis of the Port’s budgetary considerations and the assessment of its overall economic impact on the surrounding communities.
I would very much like to serve the people of Palm Beach County by working diligently to make our Port the most effective economic engine that it can be.
Clarence D. Williams, favorably known as “Chief” is running for Port of Palm Beach because he understands the true benefits and the economics of the Port. The Port MUST be allowed to live up to its full potential and be the economic engine that is was created to be. When the Port is operating at it highest level, then and only then will the Port be a true regional economic partner to the communities it serves. The revenue generated from the Port by the surrounding communities should be used to create opportunities for regional business participation.
