Dear City of Miami Resident,
The recall election is over and the people of Miami-Dade have spoken.
What is abundantly clear from the results of this election is that the
people are tired of the disconnected politicians who continue to tax
and spend our money and impose their will on the citizens of this
community without regard to the will of the people.
The political muscle of the community has been flexed. The message is
that the people will not choose status quo politicians; the community
is looking for leaders who can better relate to the needs of the
people; Leaders who understand what it is like to work with their hands
and back, leaders who face the financial struggles of the community.
Not leaders who are entrenched politicians searching for clever ways of
taxing and regulating more money out of the hands of honest hard
This is why I have decided to run for the City of Miami Commission
District 2 seat. As a small business owner who has raised a family I

Having lived in South Florida since the early 1960s, I like many of
you, am disappointed in the current state of the City of Miami. Few
would argue that Miami is the flagship city of South Florida with the

Miami as a city has great potential. Unfortunately, it has been plagued
by poor and myopic political leadership. Miami can be so much more than
it is today; we have a climate that is the envy of North America and an
advantageous geographic position when it comes to trading and
attracting business from the Caribbean, Central, and South America.
I am running for City of Miami Commissioner in District 2 because I
want to harness that vibrant energy that exist in our city and use it
in a way that maximizes our potential. We need to attract companies
from a wide variety of industries that create stable and well-paying
jobs. I also want to keep our streets safe and clean, and make sure
that growth is managed in a measured and sustainable manner.
Our city budget has been an issue that has plagued our city over the
last two decades and if we don't change the way in which the City of
Miami conducts its finances it may soon cease to exist. Maintaining a
high level of services without breaking the budgets of taxpayers should
be our first priority.
