Deputy Mayor Clarence Whipple, Jr. - District 1
Councilman Clarence Whipple JrMy goal as your Deputy Mayor is to make Cocoa all it can be as a city and represent you in the manner you deserve as a citizen of this city.

I see Cocoa as “a city on the move.” I am a product of Cocoa and have lived in Cocoa for the past 56 years and I believe it’s very important to have a united city where all residents feel they are stakeholders.

As a council member, I have had the opportunity to be a part of and help initiate beautification efforts and recommendations to improve the city’s appearance. This role also allows me to assist city officials and present ideas to the city council to raise everyone’s awareness that Cocoa is a beautiful city. In addition, my municipal experience includes serving as a volunteer on the city charter review committee a few years ago. Another valuable experience, as I gained better understanding of the operations of the city and learned the city’s “constitution” if you will!

I am proud to give back to this community which has given me so much over the years. I continue to participate in my church, Mt. Moriah A.M.E., am a member of the Osiris Shriner Temple #57, Cocoa/Rockledge Civic League and was a “Past Master” of the Cocoa Masonic Lodge 55.

As for my education and career, I am a graduate of Monroe High School and attended Brevard Community College. I later worked in management at Wuesthoff Health Systems for 35 years as Director of Communications/Security/Medical Record Retention/Fleet and Transportation Services.

I grew up in Cocoa and enjoy spending time with my family, grandchildren and great grandchildren! When I’m not working for FleetPride as a Support and Customer Service Specialist or the City, I enjoy riding my motorcycle, cooking and listening to various types of music!

I’m proud to serve you. If you need to contact me, please call my home telephone, (321) 639-4797.
