Nick Batos was selected as the first mayor of the Village of Estero, unanimous choice, of the then newly elected Village Council on March 17, 2015. The Village is one of the newest cities in Florida and was incorporated with a huge 86% plurality within the community. Estero boasts one of the fastest growing rates in the state. With a permanent population of over 32,000 and a “seasonal” population of about 55,000 the development of this new city has been dramatic. Batos was then unopposed in his re-election to a second term on the village council.
In large part to the leadership of Nick Batos and members of the Village Council Estero has become one of the success stories in the state.
