Councilmember Doug Quartier moved to South Daytona in 1961 from the City of Syracuse, NY. Quartier was sworn in as a City Councilmember in November 2018 and reelected without opposition in 2022.
After working at Halifax Hospital for several years, Quartier joined the Daytona Beach Police Department in 1979. In 1980 he began his long career with the South Daytona Police Department. Rising through the ranks of the Department, Quartier was promoted to Captain and retired from the Department in 2015.
He has been active in many community organizations, including the South Daytona Historical Society and the South Daytona Lions Club. He is a lifetime member of the South Daytona Citizens Alert, where he serves as Vice President.
Quartier takes great pride in being a part of the City for more than five decades. He enjoys working with citizens, volunteering at City-sponsored events and traveling with his family.
Quartier and his wife, Tammy, have been married for almost 30 years and have five children and seven grandchildren. Their youngest child, Kailynne, died of a brain tumor at age 13. Her memory is honored during the annual Kailynne Quartier Memorial Ride that benefits the Lions Club’s efforts to prevent childhood blindness.
