Mayor Scott Singer is honored to have served as a strong voice for Boca Raton’s residents since he was first elected to the City Council in 2014. Scott was elected as Mayor in 2018 and re-elected in 2020 with 89% of the vote, receiving the two highest vote totals in the city’s history.
Singer graduated cum laude from Harvard University with a bachelor’s degree in government and received his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center. He owns several small businesses, including a law firm focused on entrepreneurs. As an attorney, he has earned the AV Preeminent® rating from Martindale-Hubbell for highest ethical standards and legal ability. Scott is also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Mediator and helps resolve business disputes.
Mayor Singer cares deeply about enhancing the quality of life for Boca Raton residents. Scott started and led the city’s successful effort to obtain a Brightline / Virgin Trains USA high-speed rail station in Downtown, which will improve mobility and connect Boca to a major transportation network. He held a Waterfront Visioning Session in partnership with residents and local architects that provided the framework for the forthcoming Wildflower Park along the Intracoastal Waterway.
Singer has worked to increase transparency and accessibility of city government, through reductions of red tape and use of technology for access to permits and key information. Scott sponsored three sets of ethics reforms that set stronger requirements concerning ethics inquires and to safeguard against potential conflicts of interest. Scott has held a series of regular town hall meetings since his first year as a council member, which has enabled thousands of residents to communicate with him directly.
