Long time Broward resident and Community Activist Lisa Serafin-Ferreri announced her Candidacy for Broward Clerk of Court.

Lisa Serafin-Ferreri. 50, has been a Paralegal for over thirty years, and has seen Broward’s court system up front and personal, with positive ideas on methods to make it better.  She was born in Yonkers, New York in 1965 and moved to Florida in 1992.  She graduated from Immaculate Heart Academy, attended and graduated from St. Thomas College with a Bachelor of Social Sciences Degree, an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science in Travel & Tourism from SUNY-Rockland Community College, attended and obtained her Certification in Paralegal Studies from the Sparkill Campus of Long Island University and has her Certification in Real Estate from Gold Coast School of Real Estate.

Lisa Serafin-Ferreri has already made herself well known in Broward County political and charitable circles. She enters the race for Broward County Clerk of Court, with the support of a coalition of civic, political and volunteer organizations. She is running as a Professional Administrator of Operations, not a “seasoned” politician. Those who know her describe her as loyal, committed, confident, trustworthy, and business minded.

“My number one goal is to improve and implement training programs that will make the staff more accessible, accommodating and user friendly for the public, who are dependent on the Clerk’s Office to function at a high level. Errors and backlogs can be frustrating to the citizens and legal community who use the system daily and they need to be minimized.”

Lisa recently married Vincent Ferreri and they live in Coconut Creek. Lisa, as a mother of four children, has frequently  organized political and community events for many organizations. Currently a Litigation Paralegal at Roig Lawyers with offices in several counties throughout the State of Florida, in spite of her busy home and work schedule, shemakes time to volunteer for a number of charities, civic organizations and local and state candidates election campaigns.

“Electing Lisa Serafin-Ferreri, as Clerk of Broward County in November 2016 is the best thing we voters can do to assure that this important agency will function at a high level for years to come, “said one supporter.  Perhaps Lisa’s husband, Vincent Ferreri  said it best, “If you want a Broward County Court System that is efficient  and dependable, we would all benefit with Lisa at the helm”, he concluded.

  1. Lisa is a TIRELESS, ENERGETIC & DEDICATED and is DEFINITELY the
    BEST person to become our NEXT Clerlk of the Court !!!

  2. “”“My number one goal is to improve and implement training programs that will make the staff more accessible, accommodating and user friendly for the public, who are dependent on the Clerk’s Office to function at a high level.

    Perhaps someone should ask her what Plans she has for the Backlog of DNA processing that seems to be the catalyst for poor prosecutions and turnstile releases of the bad guys???

  3. Thank you for addressing the backlog of DNA processing and I will definitely look into the issue.

  4. We’ve posted about the disgraceful backlog of untested rape kits across the country before. Here is one case that hits home with how important it is to fund the testing of all rape kits. A 9 year old girl was abducted and raped at her school bus stop, and her rape kit was never tested, and left for SEVENTEEN years. The rapist, when identified, was in jail for another rape. Not only was she denied justice for 17 years, but many other victims were preyed upon by her rapist. Thanks to the hard work of Detective Lindsey Wade, Tacoma has the funding, and she is putting it to good use:

    “One of the first cases Wade was determined to solve was a Pierce County case from 1995—the rape of a 9-year-old girl.

    A man had lured the child to his car as she was walking to her school bus stop in Buckley.

    “He grabbed her, threw her into the vehicle, tied her up and drove her 30 miles to a wooded area where she was sexually assaulted brutally and left in the woods,” Wade said.

    The child survived the attack and helped police create a sketch of the offender, but there were no arrests and the case grew cold.

    But as Wade reviewed the case, she was startled to see that the rape kit had never been sent to the lab for processing.”

    If this county is serious about lowering crime stats, diminishing victim counts and putting their money where their mouths are with all those “fancy mission pages” making south Florida the Best place to live and raise a family? Then they had better look seriously into this aspect of policing. If I hear any more smoke blown up the backsides of Broward County citizens or anymore “closed meetings by police Unions begging for more money” and this isn’t addressed?? The people of Broward need to throw the new clerk out onto the street. With all due respect Ms. Ferreri, I don’t plan to go quietly on this issue.
