Called to Serve

In December 2022, when College Park was faced with the water crisis that left residents without water for several days, in neighborly conversation Spiceda was reminded that based on her foundation as a member of College Leadership Florida Class II, former Student Body Vice President of Florida State University’s 30,000 population student body, former National Pan-Hellenic President, Alpha Kappa Alpha Undergraduate Basileus, former Government and Non-Profit Financial Auditor turned Community Business Leader, Advocate for Under-Served Youth in Education, and Accountant Influencer, she was unknowingly living a life preparing to serve College Park, the city she fell in love with in a capacity that can fix and excel us forward.  

Spiceda has been an engaged member of this community and a part of the Historic College Park Neighborhood Association and formerly served as the CPA for the Airport West Community Improvement District; therefore she understand the road ahead.

Ready to Lead

Spiceda’s proven business acumen, her concern for College Park, and her relentless determination to foster growth and excellence make her the perfect candidate for Mayor. Her approach to leadership is holistic – she aims to improve the city not just through economic development and growth but also by ensuring that the government is reflective of the community in every way.

 

Spiceda’s effective leadership has helped her assist her clients from Big Business to Quasi-Governments to Small Businesses to Everyday Tax Paying People.  Her business was started in a recession and thrived through the pandemic.  While helping her clients get access to PPP, EIDL, ERC and other Government Assistance, she home-schooled her children through the pandemic tough times and delivered great results.  Spiceda has tenacity, creativity, and a dedication for seeing people win.  She is now ready to apply her this same tenacity, creativity, know-how and dedication to serve the city of College Park.

Building an eXcellent College Park

As Mayor, Spiceda aims to create a consistent College Park and a government that mirrors its community in every aspect. She is passionate about bettering neighborhoods so that the city as a whole can excel and build a common agenda.

Spiceda wants College Park to Believe and See the Bigger potential that we have as a city.  We are a destination place that is filled with resources and we must be good stewards of what we have.  We must become a city of thriving eXcellence on Main Street, Old National, Roosevelt Highway and throughout College Park.  6 West is a Project that can be an economic engine for us and tax saving for citizens.  College Park is a City, not just one project or street.
