I'm Paul Norfleet, candidate for city commission of the best city in America, Newberry, Florida. My family has been involved in many aspects of this area for over four generations ranging from timber, phosphate, farming, ranching, development and even city politics.
As a local businessman myself, I would like to help Newberry continue to be a city that's inviting to new entrepreneurs and new businesses, while also being a supporter and resource for businesses that are currently here. Newberry is a strong agricultural community and with an agricultural background, I understand that there’s no better steward of the environment than the farming family.
While the number of farmers, ranchers and diversity of crops are fewer then some time ago, this too is a sign of a larger problem that is outside of our local control. I would like to contribute to identifying and solving that problem starting here in my home community.
I hope to earn your support in the upcoming Newberry city election on April 9th.

Paul Norfleet is a native of Newberry, Florida. He and his wife Jessica are the proud parents of Judson and Savannah. In addition to operating several successful farming and construction enterprises, Paul serves on the Florida Farm Bureau board for Alachua County and the State Farm Bureau beef advisory committee. He is also active in the church, serving as the Deacon and Treasurer for First Baptist of Newberry. He is a longtime member of the Florida Cattleman’s Association and a lifelong member of the NRA.
Born with a heart for service, Paul believes public service is a responsibility that all citizens should take part in. His grandmother, Mentholee Norfleet left a great legacy of public service and set a great example for him to serve this wonderful small town we live in.
"I am very passionate about responsible growth. Our wonderful community is growing. As the cost of living nationally continues to rise, we as a community can look at how to proactively address this. By focusing on these priorities of responsible growth and maintaining costs, we will make Newberry an attractive place to live, work, play and start businesses."
