Council Member Richard "Rick" Williams has completed ballot qualification for re-election to Cape Coral City Council, District 6 which he first won in 2013, according to a campaign news release. Originally from Connecticut, he retired from the U.S. Navy after 22 years of service and managed GE Clinical Services' National Service Center in New York, a division of GE Medical Systems. Councilmember Williams has been a resident of Cape Coral for 13 years.

Among his accomplishments Williams lists the formation of Cape Coral's Youth Council, a forum for youth to actively participate in city government; and support for three reductions to the city's property millage tax rates; overhaul of the city employees' pay structure to improve retention; public safety initiatives; road paving, street lights and veterans housing; and reducing the backlog of capital improvements.

He is chair of the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization and a member of the Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Legislative Committee for the Florida League of Cities.
