The Lee Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) recently appointed Town of Fort Myers Beach Mayor Anita Cereceda and Village of Estero Councilmember Jon McLain to the Lee County Tourist Development Council (TDC).
Their first TDC meeting serving as council members was Thursday. Cereceda was appointed April 16, and McLain was appointed May 21.
Cereceda is serving her third term as mayor and was elected as the first mayor of Fort Myers Beach in 2014. McLain has been a resident of Estero for seven years and lives in Belle Lago. He is a Realtor and most recently as executive vice president of Party City Holdings. Cereceda replaces Holly D. Smith of Sanibel and McLain replaces John Carioscia of Cape Coral. Both will serve two-year terms.
The nine-member TDC was established by the BoCC in 1983 to increase off-season tourism to Lee County.
