YOUR VOICE. YOUR VALUES.
Friends and Neighbors:
On February 1st, 2022 Naples voters will again decide the candidates best suited to be your voice and represent your values for the next four years. Today I am asking for your support and your vote as I make a run at retaining my seat on City Council.
Four years ago voters clearly understood that defending our community values and small town character were the most important issues. We were under assault on numerous fronts: Compromised building codes, increased density and intensity, congestion, slow erosion of our environment and the list goes on. Residents were disenfranchised and that had to stop!
When voters elected me to City Council that was a mandate to address their concerns.
· The Naples community has come to realize that I keep my commitments. I have always understood my role in representing the interests of our residents.
· When tough decisions must be made, I have made them, even if I have to stand alone.
My priorities are steadfast and are reflected in my voting record.
· My votes have helped restore the confidence in our system which the community desperately needed. You now have representation! A great win was providing space for resident-only beach parking.
· I led the effort to reform our building codes that are designed to protect our environment and effectively manage growth. In the future I will support further refinements of our codes. No longer will the rampant run to approve virtually every building variance and deviation be the norm.
· I have elevated environmental stewardship, financial prudence and accountability. These are bedrock principles I will continue to champion.
· I believe the Athens Group and Four Seasons are the right team to deliver a 5 Star hotel/condo/golf complex on the Naples Beach Hotel parcel. However, I was the solo ‘no vote’ on City council because the agreement had weak environmental protections for only 70 of the 104 acres of open space. I am now working with City council members to shape and approve a Conservation Easement with 3rd Party Enforcement that will protect the maximum acreage in perpetuity.
In the coming weeks and months I will be visiting our wonderful neighborhoods to hear your thoughts, ideas and concerns. If I am fortunate enough to earn your vote, I will be your strongest voice on City Council.
This election will be extremely competitive and pivotal. It’s about the future of Naples. I will put all my energies into this campaign, but to win I will also need your financial support. You can count on me. Together let’s make it happen!

Vice Mayor Hutchison addresses the affordable housing issue
Vice Mayor Hutchison states, "Let's identify our opportunities to immediately help our residents. Number one, it's like triage in a field hospital. You take care of those that are needing it most immediately and then you have a plan for those others, right? So, let's triage the situation, identify opportunities to immediately help those residents and then identify the options beyond the immediate help and think long term, make a plan and execute the plan."

Naples Vice Mayor Terry Hutchison Announces City Council Re-election Bid
Second term will again focus on conservation initiatives, building code reform, and resident priorities.
Naples, Florida. June 8, 2021
Today Naples Vice Mayor Terry Hutchison announced that he will seek a second 4-year term for City Council. Last year’s City Council election swept out four incumbents and brought a major realignment at City Hall. Hutchison led the effort to move long-stalled initiatives to fruition.
He voted for stricter building variance standards that will moderate intense redevelopment.
Accelerated funding for the storm water master plan has been approved. Resident-only beach parking is a reality. Most importantly, Naples citizens are engaged and have renewed confidence in the political process.
Terry Hutchison embodies the City’s vision, character, and community spirit. He is a business leader and a conservationist. He is known throughout the community for his charitable and civic initiatives.
The hallmarks of Terry’s tenure as a council member are his integrity and commitment.
Terry Hutchison said: “I am proud to be known as someone who gets things done. I keep my commitments. Grade me on my actions, not my words.”
In the next four years, Hutchison will champion accelerated funding to complete remediation of Naples lakes, beach re-nourishment beginning this fall, and cleaner storm-water outfalls into the bay and gulf.
He will propose sensible building code revisions to better reflect Naples small town feel. This will also provide clarity and certainty for both residents and developers.
He will support priority investments for the Design District/10th Street/River Park corridor: Long needed Infrastructure and a visionary master plan.
Hutchison said: “Over the last two years we have charted a new and better direction for Naples. We’ve reengaged the citizens and restored confidence that their voices are being heard. That’s what my campaign is all about: Your Voice. Your Values.”
Vice Mayor Hutchison has launched a campaign website where voters can find the latest campaign news and details of his platform: www.hutchison4naples.com and email: email@example.com or contact by cell: 239-771-1042
The election will be held on February 1st, 2022 with three City Council seats under consideration.
