Wellington Village councilman files intent to run for remainder of term

image001

Local attorney and civic activist John T. McGovern plans to run in 2016 for the remainder of the term for his seat on the Wellington Village Council.

McGovern currently serves on the council, having been appointed in February this year to a seat left vacant by the departure of Howard Coates, who was named a circuit court judge.  A special election will be held in March 2016 to the fill the remaining two years of Coates’ four-year council term.

“I have the experience, passion and vision to continue to serve on the Village Council,” McGovern said today. “I want to preserve Wellington for future generations. That’s because our Village is a unique, family focused, environmentally friendly, equestrian-based community made up of diverse neighborhoods and great schools.”

McGovern, 40, is a partner with the law firm of Custer~McGovern, where he co-manages a litigation firm which represents those injured due to the negligence of others.  He has served for three years on the Board Directors of the Palm Beach County Justice Association, a 350+ member professional association, and is now Secretary and a member of the Executive Committee.  He also has been a civic volunteer including with the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County and he spent five years working with high school students as a volunteer attorney-coach for future lawyers.

“I understand it takes a “Village” to build a community,” McGovern said.  “And I am focused on working with our residents to ensure they are a part of the community and its decision-making process.”

McGovern filed his papers Monday to run for the remainder of the term of seat 3 on the council.  McGovern first moved to Wellington in 1986 and was a member of the first graduating class to have attended Wellington High School for all four years.  In 2011, he and his wife Michelle moved back home to Wellington to raise their two daughters.
