Pasco Board of County Commissioners Undergoes Reorganization

The Pasco Board of County Commissioners (BCC) reorganized at its regular meeting December 8, 2020, in New Port Richey.  The board elected Ron Oakley to serve as board chair and Kathryn Starkey to serve as vice chair.

Pasco County Commissioners also recently welcomed newly elected District 4 Commissioner Christina Fitzpatrick to the board.  Fitzpatrick was elected in August to fill the seat of Mike Wells, who is transitioning into the role of Pasco County Property Appraiser.  Commissioners Ron Oakley, Kathryn Starkey and Jack Mariano were all re-elected to their seats.

“Despite the challenges we’ve faced as a community and nation in 2020, Pasco County is positioned for a bright year ahead,” said new Pasco County Board Chairman Ron Oakley.  “Your new board is ready to get to work and is committed to delivering the services, places and opportunities that make Pasco a premier live, work and play destination that we’re proud to call home.”

“As a decades-long Pasco County resident and business owner, I’m honored and blessed to have been given the opportunity to serve our citizens and to share their vision for the future,” said Commissioner Fitzpatrick.  “I’m excited to work with our departments and team members to address the needs of our community.”

The Pasco Board of County Commissioners is comprised of the following members:

Chair Ron Oakley, District 1

Commissioner Mike Moore, District 2

Vice Chair Kathryn Starkey, District 3

Commissioner Christina Fitzpatrick, District 4

Commissioner Jack Mariano, District 5

County Commission meetings are usually held every other Tuesday, alternating between the West Pasco Government Center in New Port Richey and the Historic Pasco County Courthouse in Dade City.  All Pasco BCC meetings are live-streamed online and broadcast on Pasco TV.
