I have the same frustrations everyone else has with Fort Lauderdale government, and will work with residents, businesses and community leaders to solve the problems impacting our beautiful city,” Castrataro said in a press release. “I’m running for Commission in District 2 because my commitment plus our values will equal a better A Better Fort Lauderdale.”
