Chairman Monestime helps mark 50th anniversary of Voting Rights Act
Chairman Monestime is helping mark the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act by urging residents to remain vigilant in protecting and exercising their right to vote. “The Voting Rights Act was a great victory for civil rights that aimed at overcoming persistent racial barriers that had prevented people in many states from freely exercising their Constitutional right to vote,” he said. “In light of judicial and legislative setbacks to the Voting Rights Act and voting rights around the country, it is critically important that we remain vigilant to ensure full access to the polls and that the hard-won gains of 50 years ago are not diminished.”

"I’m deeply saddened by the news of the death of former Miami-Dade Police Director Robert Parker. Director Parker was an inspiring leader who made history as the police department’s first African American director after decades of dedicated service in the department. His death hit particularly close to home as he was also a resident of my district. On behalf of the Board of County Commissioners, I wish to offer my sincerest condolences to his family, his former colleagues in the Miami-Dade Police Department and all those who had the privilege to know and work with him.”
Chairman Monestime's statement on Mayor's proposed budget
“The Proposed Budget appears to respond to calls by the County Commission to improve the quality of various services to our residents. That's a good start. While the operational budgets of many departments will increase, the overall strategic direction of county government remains uncertain. Ultimately, the county budget should be an expression of the shared vision of our commission. I look forward to hearing from the public, consulting with our community based organizations in service delivery, and working with my colleagues to define a collective vision for the future of our county.”
