FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Two familiar faces in Broward are becoming county commissioners.
Jared Moskowitz and Torey Alston will be appointed to open commission seats by Ron DeSantis, the governor announced at a news conference Tuesday morning in Fort Lauderdale.
They take those positions on Jan. 11, replacing Dale Holness and Barbara Sharief, who resigned to run for Congress.
Moskowitz, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas alumnus born in Coral Springs, was overseeing the state’s COVID-19 response as the Division of Emergency Management Director before resigning from that post in February so he could spend more time with his family.
“Let’s just hope that this appointment is nowhere near as eventful as the last job you gave me,” Moskowitz joked to DeSantis after the announcement.
The Parkland resident will represent District 8, the seat that has been held by Sharief. His term will run through November 2022.
