Chairman Monestime's statement on the death of former Miami-Dade Police Director Robert Parker
"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.”
