Born in Key West and raised in North Palm Beach
A True Public Servant...
Karen Marcus graduated from PBG High. She has served as our County Commissioner through times of challenge and opportunity. Palm Beach County is in her DNA, and the results of her collaborative leadership can be seen in our local economy, parks, waterways, neighborhoods.
A true public servant, Karen has a well-earned reputation as a strong force for sustainable practices that positioned the county for long-term success. An effective commissioner for district needs, Marcus has championed a countywide perspective that leaves no resident behind.
Her efforts have resulted in proven benefits for all of us as northern Palm Beach County residents, businesses, and visitors have enjoyed both a robust economy and a rich range of parks, green spaces, recreational areas and other quality-of-life assets. In fact, at the end of her last term, the Palm Beach County Commission unanimously voted to name 154 county-owned acres east of Route 1 in Jupiter the Karen Marcus Ocean Park Preserve. At the time Karen said, “It makes me feel like what I did make a difference. Land preservation and recreation are important to me, and this will give that to county residents.”
