The Ball Park of the Palm Beaches
A big thank you to our Frontline Heroes.
During the COVID pandemic our Nurses, EMS and Law Enforcement Officers put
their lives on the line to help those affected by the pandemic. To thank
them, Commissioner Sachs arranged a baseball game between the Washington
Nationals and the Houston Astros at the Ball Park of the Palm Beaches. It
was a major gesture of gratitude to our Frontline Heroes.
Consulate Community ID Day

honor, Commissioner Maria Sachs proposed the naming of a roadway in his
memory that leads from Lake Worth Road to the Boundless Playground, a

Ben Ferencz, Prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials
As the prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials, Ben Ferencz presided over the
prosecution of some of the worst criminals in history. As a resident in
Commissioner Sachs’ district, his story has been told worldwide as the
last survivor of those historic times. Commissioner Sachs asked Governor
Ron DeSantis to award the highest honor in the State of Florida, The Medal
of Freedom, to our local hero.
As development increases in our county, transportation becomes a
challenge. Commissioner Sachs invited the Secretary of the Florida
Department of Transportation to meet with community leaders, county
engineers, and professors and students from Florida Atlantic University.
Working together, solutions were discussed to alleviate traffic,
congestion and aging infrastructure.
