Public Safety is Job One for Local Government

I’ve always been a dedicated public servant. And ever since I was elected to the Miami Beach City Commission, I’ve worked hard to make sure that everything I do is in service of you — the residents of Miami Beach.

Recently, we’ve seen a disturbing rise in crime and associated chaos, especially in South Beach and the former Entertainment District. Enough is enough. We need to keep residents, businesses, and visitors safe.

Revamping South Beach with an eye towards art, culture, and wellness will make a substantial difference in our public safety and quality of life. Ocean Drive can be more than bars and nightclubs–and by making it more than a party spot, we’ll make our city safer and more livable.

I’ve worked hard to hold bad actors accountable, support our public safety officers with more security cameras and better technology, and clean up malfeasance on public property. In my next term, I’ll continue to prioritize reducing crime and improving our quality of life.

Actions for Keeping Miami Beach Safe

Many of us worry about public safety and the crime rate in our city. My goal as your City Commissioner has been to enact policies that will help Miami Beach residents feel safe in their homes and on our streets. Going forward, I will continue to advocate for swift, bold actions and all options are absolutely on the table.

I’m running for re-election to continue working to reduce crime and make South Beach–and our entire city–safer and friendlier especially for residents.

In the coming months, I hope I’ll have your support for this campaign and for our efforts to create a safer Miami Beach.

With gratitude,

Mark
