2020 canidate for Indialantic mayor
Melvyn Chang is a military veteran who is a 2020 candidate for Indialantic mayor.
Chang’s main priorities include budget reform, enabling the most economical use of our tax dollars, setting term limits for the mayor and all council members, making the town of Indialantic website the single source for town government information, and promoting public trust in government.
“I believe the first two priorities go hand-in-glove because of the limited real estate and limited resources we have in Indialantic. Currently, our growth rate is outpacing our infrastructure and organic resources.
“I think term limits provide more opportunities for younger people and others to contribute to their community at the decision-making level. Research shows that term limits increase voter participation. Having lived abroad and in several states, I have witnessed how setting term limits stimulates growth and provokes a more diverse dialogue when facing local issues.”
Chang graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Saint Leo University and a Master of Business Administration from Troy State University.
Furthermore, Chang served in the military for 23 years.
Chang believes the citizens of Indialantic deserve increased public trust in the local government.
