I value family and our community’s quality of life above all else,” said Via.
Holly Hill is my hometown and I’m passionate about making our city the best it can be. Serving as your current City Commissioner and Vice-Mayor, I have the knowledge, energy, and experience necessary to continue to move our city forward in a positive direction.
As your Mayor, I will improve our city’s image, keep our tax and utility rates low, and encourage a family-oriented community. Most importantly, I will always be available to you.

Keeping our tax and utility rates as low as possible will always be a top priority for me.
Taxes & Utility Rates
Additional beautification of our city will raise awareness in the public's eye of how truly inviting we are as a community.
Local government is the closest to the people and should maintain open communication and account for every taxpayer dollar spent.
Accountability & Transparency
We should always encourage a family-oriented community and make Holly Hill a great place to raise a family.
Our government should be reflective of the community’s wants and needs. Public input is extremely important to me, and I will always represent the will of the people.
Being business friendly is vital to attract new businesses to fill our US1 corridor, to expand our tax base, and to create new high paying jobs for our community.
I’d like to hear about the issues that are important to you!
