Jean Monestime, Prime Sponsor

Commissioner Monestime noted two years had passed since the devastating earthquake in Haiti. He stated that in the days and months that followed, Miami-Dade residents made significant contributions to the clean up and rebuilding efforts by donating 12,000 surplus trash carts from the Public Works and Waste Management Department. On March 6, 2012, the Board adopted a resolution to help Haiti, and in May and June 2012, County staff organized the logistics of the donation, said Commissioner Monestime. He indicated that two employees, Mark Brown and Larry Wilson, went above and beyond their duties to coordinate this effort, and the Haitian authorities asked the County to recognize their work. Commissioner Monestime stated that it was with pleasure that he recognized these employees for delivering excellent service.
Commissioner Jordan said she not surprised that Mr. Mark Brown was singled out to receive a commendation, noting he was in the news for chasing a hit and run driver who hit a pedestrian. She stated he was a unique and dedicated individual.
Mr. Mark Brown said that his teammate was on his way. He thanked Ms. Katherine Woods-Richardson, Director, Public Works and Waste Management, and Commissioner Monestime for the commendation. He stated that it was a wonderful department to work for, and that it was a great pleasure to be able to be of service to other people. He noted he was happy to have been in a position to help the people of Haiti.
