Commissioner Carmen Turner (District VI)

Carmen Turner is a third-generation Conch (or native Key Wester) whose great-grandfather immigrated to the U.S. from the Bahamas in 1897.

She attended Key West High School, then earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Relations at the University of Florida, followed by a Master of Science degree in Business Management from Troy State University.

In 1995, at the age of 29, she was appointed to finish two years of a term on the Key West City Commission by then Governor Lawton Chiles. She went on to win her four-year seat in the 1997 city election, and was recently re-elected without opposition to serve another four-year term in the 2001 city election.

She is currently executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monroe County, Inc., a position she particularly enjoys because it allows her to work with the community to improve the lives of our children.

Her position as a city commissioner has given her the opportunity to focus on developing and maintaining housing for traditional residents in our community, improving the quality of life on the island, and protecting our fragile environment.
