Why I’m Running for Apopka City Council

Committed to Apopka’s Future

I am a parent, a wife, a neighbor, a community advocate. As a resident of Apopka for over 8 years. My priorities are to collaborate efforts with our current city administration to continue improving the city budget by maintaining fiscal responsibility, while exploring economic partnership opportunities.

Throughout my public service career integrity and honor have always been paramount. I have successfully fought to give a voice to those who have had no voice and to bring justice to where it was needed. Abiding by my law enforcement values to Serve with Integrity, Respect and Quality. I believe in transparency, managed growth and the availability of affordable housing. With my experience, I will further our beliefs and strengthen our home town of Apopka.

Now, Baron hopes you’ll see her at the dias serving on the Apopka City Council.

Her path to Apopka is like many, moving into the city in 2012 and falling in love with the city’s community, it’s people and its amenities. She’s seen it grow, from adding a splash pad, a new city center and exciting new businesses.

But, her background proves to her that Apopka can be so much more and she wants to help lead this new era of prosperity for the city.

Baron was born and raised in Miami, the daughter of Cuban immigrants. When she was eight, her parents divorced, and she was raised by a single mom and her three older siblings.

Baron is married to Edwin Baron and has four children.
