I am running for Mayor of Miami-Dade County because politics cannot continue to be above the priorities of the taxpayer. Business as usual at county hall can’t continue for Miami-Dade to prosper and our citizens to have the quality of life they deserve. My candidacy is based on conservative principles to protect taxpayer dollars, ensure transparency, fairness, and fiscal responsibility. Make no mistake, my administration will not serve the interests of the extreme liberals that are looking to redefine America and in the process increase Miami-Dade government on the back of its taxpayers.
As a County Commissioner, I have successfully pushed through some reforms but many more are needed. I’ve fought for real change, at times being the lone voice. In the “Accomplishments” section of this site you will see a full list, but I’ll share some highlights here. I am proud of spearheading the effort to finally approve term limits for the county commission and of sounding the alarm on how contracts are awarded at Miami International Airport in a corrupt manner. I worked to reform County Employee Benefits and Retirement to reflect fairness and equity in what taxpayers can afford.
The next Mayor of Miami-Dade County needs to be committed to moving the country forward with courageous and innovative reforms. At the forefront of every county initiative, proposal, bid, contract, ordinance and project must be demanding transparency and efficiency to protect the taxpayer from unethical practices, waste and abusive taxes. If an initiative does not meet that criteria at the onset, it will be dead on arrival under my administration.
We cannot afford to go back to the days when Miami-Dade was a national laughing stock because of the rampant corruption that existed in our county. The days when a select few used their access to County Hall to enrich themselves at the expense of Miami-Dade County’s residents. In short, cronyism and corruption will be replaced by transparency and accountability.
I am very aware that this is not an easy endeavor. We are disrupting the interests of some very deep pockets with radical agendas. However, I have no doubt that this is the correct course for the future of our county to be truly prosperous for its residents. The platform below demonstrates my commitment to conservative and effective governance for families and taxpayers.
