Platform & Accomplishments

Your problems and concerns are my biggest priority. I quickly return every email, phone call, and letter you send. I track every concern and don’t let it go until we reach a resolution. And I’m always accessible. My personal cell number is 305-582-0710. Call me right now if you wish.

I built into the Sole Mia contract six acres for a new park on-site. Right now, we’re planning state-of-the-art playing fields and a rec facility to serve all of North Miami. I’m also keeping an eye on the efforts of the Dade School Board to rebuild Cagni Park on NE 135 Street. Our kids need that park built as soon as possible.

I’ve repeatedly stood strong against those who try to use your tax money in wasteful or illegal ways. I led the charge to successfully have the State conduct an audit of city finances, assuring that procedures are changed to stem future problems. I’ll continue that charge whenever necessary.

Since I sponsored legislation to establish the 13-acre Arch Creek East Environmental Preserve, we have had to fight off repeated attempts to destroy it. We won’t let that happen. Instead, we will continue to improve it by planting native species and keeping it a neighborhood jewel.

The need for affordable housing is emergent across the county. North Miami needs to find ways for working class families to afford to live here. We should examine things like Developer Fees, micro-units, and other cutting edge ideas. We might also sell unused city-owned land and create other incentives.

Another looming issue for us is the threat of global warming and rising water levels. It’s not just a problem for our waterfront communities. Those further inland along canals are also at risk. Already, we can see the effects after hard rains. We need to look at drainage solutions and plan now for what we know the future will bring.
