Hello, I’m Neil Price and currently hold the office of Fire Commissioner, Seat 2 for the Matlacha/Pine Island Fire Control District. I also am past president and current board member of Cape Royal’s Community Homeowners Association.
I look forward to continuing to serve our community to ensure that our investment in emergency services provides the first response capabilities we need and are fiscally responsible as we meet the ever-changing challenges ahead.
A little background on me: I was born and raised in Southern California. I received my BS in Civil and environmental engineering from University of California at Irvine. I continued my education with an MA in Planning and Public Administration from Pepperdine University. My career spanned over 45 years in management and executive management roles with engineering technology-based software companies serving the aerospace, defense, and automotive industries. After several transfers, we settled in Michigan where we resided for 27 years. My wife's parents resided in Fort Myers for over 30 years and as we contemplated where retirement would take us, Southwest Florida made sense. We were drawn to the 'Old Florida' feel of Pine Island and Matlacha and its easy access to the water where we can pursue our passions for kayaking, boating, and fishing. We also golf and our area had it all. We couldn't be happier with the choice we made.
