Pete Bacheler  for Islamorada Village Council Seat 1

Pete Bacheler
For Islamorada Village Council Seat 1
I have resided in the Village of Islamorada for 37 years, 32 spent in land use planning and building department. This coordination work provides me a complete understanding of the Village business, activities and the various departments.

The Leadership Our Village Needs

The first year of my council participation was as Vice Mayor. I am currently the Mayor of Islamorada. This leadership role gives me a keen eye of how the Village should be doing things.

A Vision For The Future

Let’s keep the Village of Islamorada as quaint and successful as it has been the past 2 years.


2023 Issues

Maintain, sustain and improve the BLUE economy. Many businesses are based upon the BLUE (our fishing industry) economy in the Keys and we support that effort. Furthermore, permits in 2023 in the BPAS must be allowed to move forward.

I have known Pete Bacheler since when we were both young and better looking. He has been a good friend and client for many, many years. To be a client of mine have to believe you are honest but if you are a friend and a client I know for sure and Pete is both.
