Commissioner Maxwell Chambers of the City of Miramar, recently showed that his commitment to South Florida knows no bounds.
On August 19, the Jamaican and South Florida stalwart joined the Church of God 7th Day of South Miami, for a back-to-school event.
Doesn’t serve one community
“I’m not just a servant of Miramar, if a community needs me, I’m there. I don’t serve just one community, I’m a servant for people,” he stated.
Chambers was introduced to the congregation by Pastor Ezra Modeste whose wife, Barbara Modeste, read Chamber’s bio. In his message, commissioner Chambers conveyed to the congregation that, “Our first priority is to be good citizens.”
He explained how he became a public servant, spoke about his passion for serving the community, and made suggestions how
the church can serve its base in Homestead, in South Miami-Dade County.
Handed out school supplies
The event, which lasted one hour, was informative, heartfelt and enlightening. Chambers’ speech concluded when he handed out school supplies to children.
South Miami board president, Joel Modeste, presented the commissioner with a fruit basket as a gift to express sincere appreciation from the community.
On November 18, the Jamaican-American Bar Association will award Commissioner Chambers with a Public Service Award, for his continued support of the local legal community.
