As an avid bird watcher and conservationist, Mr. Stoccardo has spent a considerable amount of time exploring all 67 counties in Florida witnessing the socioeconomic devastation so many experience. Advocating for, what environmentalists feel to be, proper land use versus development for the sake of development has also been an activity for which Mr. Stoccardo devotes a considerable amount of energy. Mr. Stoccardo recently retired his 30 year career as a civil servant working as a computer engineer for NASA. The majority of Mr. Stoccardo’s time is now devoted to the political/environmental causes he strongly believes.
Appointed by District 5 Commissioner Emily Bonilla
