2021 ELECTIONS: GENERAL, November 2 | RUNOFF, November 16

Bovo’s Vision

I am running for Mayor of Hialeah because it is my home and where I have raised my family. Next to my family, Hialeah is the place, community, and people I love most of all.

As a former County Commissioner, I’ve fought for real change, at times being the lone conservative voice. I am proud of spearheading the effort to finally approve term limits for the County Commission and fighting corruption. I worked to reform County Employee Benefits and Retirement to reflect fairness and equity in what taxpayers can afford.

The next Mayor of Hialeah must be committed to moving the city forward with courageous and innovative reforms. At the forefront of every city initiative, proposal, bid, contract, ordinance and project must be transparency and efficiency to protect the taxpayer from unethical practices, waste, and abusive taxes.

COVID-19 has caused so much harm to our community and our quality of life. We all know someone adversely affected by the pandemic. It has also harmed small business and the economy. As your Mayor, I will work to ensure everyone has access to the vaccine and resources are available to help our City recover and prosper. I will support keeping our small businesses open and people employed. I will commit to work in close partnership with our federal and state government leaders to ensure public safety while also encourage schools to return to in-school learning.

I know that this is the correct course for the future of our city to be truly prosperous for its residents. The platform below demonstrates my commitment to conservative and effective governance for families and taxpayers.

Esteban “Steve” Bovo, Jr.
