Jacquelyn McMiller

Jacquelyn has resided in the city of Fort Myers for 50 years. She graduated with degrees in Legal Studies and Court Reporting, and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree from Hodges University in Business Management with an emphasis on Risk Management. She’s spent over 25 years working to serve the public through social services and grassroots efforts.

She is a proud mother of two sons and one daughter, with five grandchildren. She’s also owned and operated a successful corporation, McMiller Court Reporting Services, and was appointed as the official Court Reporter for Collier County for over 16 years. 

Having parents who fostered and adopted other children sparked Jacquelyn’s passion towards foster care and child protective services. She became a child protection investigator and field supervisor, recognized as an expert by the 20th Judicial Circuit Courts as a Practice Expert. She has collaborated with State Law Enforcement and City Agencies in protecting public interests in safety. Then, she went on to become a trainer for other investigators, specializing in state and local statutes and holistic, compassionate methodologies. 

Jacquelyn always has been a natural leader, working with people and forming synergistic teams to accomplish common goals. She’ll bring that skill to her position as mayor as she works with people to protect the futures of everyone in Fort Myers. 

“How can we guarantee the prosperous future of any particular neighborhood if we’re neglecting another part of our city so much that we consistently have to funnel costly emergency resources there to bail them out? That goes for coastal neighborhoods that need environmental protection, low-income neighborhoods that need infrastructure, and new developments that need to be planned for long-term benefits for all of Fort Myers.

I grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Dunbar and moved to a lovely gated community in Gateway. I’ve seen first-hand what a mistake it is to think we can isolate ourselves from problems and ignore them. If any part of Fort Myers is neglected, the entire city struggles.

There’s more that unites us than divides us. We may have lots of different needs, but our basic needs for a well-functioning city are all the same.

Everybody wants to raise their children without being fearful for their safety. Everybody deserves clean water and an environment that’s safe and stable. Everybody wants to have a job and a place they can call home.”
