Shirley D. Lanier, Chair Pro-Tem


Shirley D. Lanier, Council Member 

As a native resident representing District 3 in Riviera Beach and current grant writer, Councilwoman Shirley Lanier is dedicated to community development, economic self-sufficiency, and job creation in the city of Riviera Beach. She brings to the Council her 30+ years of experience in strategic planning and implementation, housing advocacy, youth service programs and community sustainability.

Using her extensive experience in community service, Councilwoman Lanier has successfully implemented a broad range of projects to include jobs for returning citizens, protection of the city’s wetlands, and crime prevention programs to improve public safety. With the goal of every resident being empowered and self-sufficient, Councilwoman Lanier has championed opportunities for them to better themselves and their community. She instituted an organic farm for residents which includes physical fitness and healthy eating classes and brought Amazon and an expansion of UPS to the city which will result in jobs and living wages for residents.

Her ultimate goal is to partner with community stakeholders and residents who have not historically been included in the conversation to identify sustainable solutions for Riviera Beach. She believes citizens must be actively engaged in the political process because they are directly impacted by the decisions made by the Council. Ms. Lanier envisions the residents and the City Council working together to move all of Riviera Beach towards Economic Development and Social Sustainability.
