Over 1,950 petitions collected!

Over 1,950 petitions collected!

We submitted our 3rd and final batch of petitions for a total of over 1,900 to qualify for the November ballot for City Commissioner in Group VI. This represents more than double the number of petitions required, and reaffirms our grassroots and neighbor-to-neighbor campaign we launched earlier this year.

I spent the entire summer knocking on doors to meet with neighbors and voters one-on-one to hear from them what they consider to be our priorities. I am proud of our early support!

Accountability & Transparency in City Hall

Accountability & Transparency in City Hall

As a Certified Public Accountant and former forensic auditor, I know that accountability and trust in government is sacred. This is why as your city commissioner, I will make sure we properly implement and execute the office of Inspector General that was approved by the voters last year.

This will ensure the City has an independent voice and oversight of all City activities, including elected officials and staff. I will also work with my colleagues to effectively and efficiently execute the voter-approved GO Bond that brings much needed infrastructure investments to Miami Beach. And most importantly, just as I did while I served as your state representative, my door will always be open to address your needs and concerns.

Keeping Miami Beach Safe

Keeping Miami Beach Safe

Our number one job as a City is to ensure we keep our residents and visitors safe and protected.

I believe we must work with our police department to ensure we continue to invest in community based policing that allows residents and business owners to develop a positive and working relationship with those who police our neighborhoods. In addition to effectively coordinating resources, I will work with my colleagues to ensure our police department has the proper plans for high impact weekends and during the peak tourism season. This will allow our residents to feel that our City resources are being deployed to better serve the community and properly balance the needs of our residents with our City’s tourism hub.

Smart Investments in Climate Change & Sea Level Rise

Smart Investments in Climate Change & Sea Level Rise

I believe that Miami Beach has been a leader on climate change and sea level rise policy. This has ensured that our residents and businesses are being protected from flooding and other changes sea level rise brings to our community. As city commissioner, I intend to work with homeowners and businesses to ensure that smart planning continues, and inclusive approaches are welcomed. We know that sea levels are rising, so we cannot stop programs that protect our City, but we can balance approach and engagement, so everyone has an equal seat at the table. In the end, homes and businesses are a financial investment, and often the largest for many families, and it’s important that the City takes proper steps to ensure properties can be insured and mortgages can continue without hesitation.

Innovation & Problem-solving

Smart Investments in Climate Change & Sea Level Rise

Miami Beach has often been a leader on innovation and problem-solving, and as your city commissioner I intend for us to always be at the forefront. Just like a dedicated group of community advocates came together to pass sensible reforms to protect our environment, like the banning of plastic bags and straws, I will be an active voice in bringing residents, advocates, and policy leaders together to tackle the problems and issues of the day. Through smart, innovative, and inclusive problem-solving we can achieve the most consensus and best solutions for the residents of Miami Beach!

Enhanced Quality of Life

Smart Investments in Climate Change & Sea Level Rise

There is no doubt that we must always work to enhance the quality of life services for our residents. While the GO Bond projects will allow our community to see major upgrades in parks, roads, and safety, we need to always do more so everyone can enjoy the greatness our City has to offer. This includes working with the County, State, and Federal governments to address the endless traffic gridlock that plagues our community and attract innovative solutions that allow residents and visitors to move about the City without the need of a car. By incentivizing mobility through other means, we can better address the clogging of our streets. As a resident of South Beach, and as your commissioner, I intend to be a leading voice on this issue and press for short, and long-term solutions that ensure we are not just talking about the problems, but actively working to solve them.
