Before joining the Town Council, Luis served on the Davie School Advisory Board, Davie Child Safety Task Force, Davie Planning and Zoning Board, and Davie Economic Development Council.
Councilmember Luis supports growth via economic development but is active in ensuring that Davie preserves land for the enjoyment of future generations. He is an advocate of public safety, which is reflected in his support for police, fire, and emergency management efforts. As a former auxiliary police officer, the health, safety, and welfare our residents are paramount in his mind.
While Councilmember Luis enjoys various activities, two of his favorite past times are horseback riding and martial arts. As a horse owner and trail rider, he can be seen winding his way through Davie’s trails whenever he gets the opportunity. Luis is a supporter of our trails and open space – he values the quality of life that they provide to our residents. Luis is also a master-ranked martial artist. He has practiced martial arts for over 49 years and states that it instills discipline and balance in its practitioners, very useful traits for an elected official.
