Dear Chris,

The Council of Fort Lauderdale Civic Associations has been privileged to work with Neighbor Support for many years; we applaud Hal Barnes and his entire team.

On behalf of the Council, I want to call attention to Keith Farrell in particular for his outstanding efforts.  Much of his support occurs outside of public periphery but please know we have greatly benefited from the many innovations he has helped implement and the extensive dedication he has shown in helping our neighborhoods be more engaged, be better informed, be better citizen leaders.

All of us on the Council can attest to Keith’s brilliance and thoughtful approach to resolving issues.  He is generous in his support, often going beyond what is expected.

With our increased reliance on technology during the pandemic, we are especially grateful for his leadership in facilitating our virtual meetings.

Keith has shown through his actions and his hard work that he cares, and he has truly made a difference for our neighborhoods.

Our partnership with the City of Fort Lauderdale is highly valued and is in no small measure because of people like Keith and you of course.  We are grateful and look forward to continuing our support of the good work of the City.

For all of the above and more, we, the board and general membership of the Council, representing all of the neighborhoods of the City of Fort Lauderdale, formally acknowledge Keith Farrell for his professionalism, dedication and integrity.


Colleen Lockwood

President, CFLCA
