My statement on the City Commissioner’s race

I’ve had the honor to serve our community for nearly four years, and I am entirely focused on campaigning hard over the next two months to continue to earn the trust of our voters.

Recently, a lawsuit was filed against my opponent in the race for Miami Beach City Commission, Group 2, claiming that he has not met the residency requirements to run in Miami Beach this year.

While I am not a party to any lawsuit, I believe it is crucial that our Charter is upheld and that concerned residents are assured that candidates on the ballot are legally qualified. In fact, the City relies on the sworn statements of candidates and does not validate residency information.

Statement

As I meet every day with residents, I share my promise to take on the big issues ahead to ensure everyone feels safe in the City and that we double down on efforts to improve resident quality of life.

I know this year has been tough for many, and we must do more as a Commission to meet the needs of our residents.

I am confident that through our campaign’s direct voter engagement, we will earn the continued trust and votes of our residents to serve another four-year term on the Commission. That is my focus through November.

With Gratitude
