Family Matters

It seems like just yesterday that my kids were born. I have so many happy memories from that time, but I also remember the very real fear that came with losing income while I stayed home with my brand new babies.

This is why I'm proud to share that the parental leave policy I have championed for years has now been approved by our County Commission. Palm Beach County employees with at least one year of service will receive six weeks of leave, concurrent with Family Medical Leave (FMLA), at 100% of the employee’s base salary for the birth, adoption, or fostering of a child.

If you support family leave, please join my campaign team!

Welcoming a new child into the family should be a joyous occasion. I'm thrilled that we are doing our part to make sure our employees have this security during such a critical time.

These are the kinds of policies I fight for every day as your Commissioner, and they are the reason I am running for re-election. We have so much more to do, and I hope I can count on your support.

Thanks,

Melissa
