Welcome to District 7
A voice was heard on May 24th. Miami-Dade's District 7 asked for change in local governance. My commitment is to honor your trust being a voice of reform, opening opportunities to all, seeking equity, efficiency, and respect for the taxpayer. The most effective policy is made in consultation with the community while expanding the boundaries of the possible. I bring my experience, energy, and enthusiasm to this effort.
